Although I have been driving for quite a while now I don't like motorway driving and I avoid them as much as possible, but I had decided to visit Pickleberry Papercrafts who opened their doors for the first time on Saturday. So I made the effort to conquer my apprehension, and I did it, nothing to it, although on for my return journey I did travel home via the A2.
I was made to feel most welcome at Pickleberry and met with some old friends and made new ones. The first thing I saw were the mouth watering cup cakes so I just had to take a picture and then sample them Mmm! Oh and the Bucks Fizz and Champagne which was on offer.
Of course you can't visit a craft shop and not buy anything, I was quite good as you can see. I fell in love with the sticker sheet and aren't the Sassfraslass papers gorgeous, I adore the owl isn't he lovely?
All customers were given the opportunity to take part in a make and take, and were provided with endless cups of coffee and tea. I was also able to sit and scrap, so I made the most of the chance, I decided to do yet another sketch provided by Inspired Blueprints, Which I completed yesterday.
Thank you Kate and Jan for making me feel welcome I had a lovely day.
I used the Creative Imaginations Christine Adolph Tidepool range in my layout. The chest in the photograph is raised on 3d foam pads to give dimension. I also did the same with the smaller ones. The title is cut on the Cricut using the Life is a Beach Cartridge, and cut it out on thin metal using the deep cut blade, although I did have to re-cut by hand as I didn't want to to ruin the blade or the title. I also used thin strips of metal around the edge of the main photo to give it a lift.
