Christmas Workshop 21 22 August

Hi! I hope you are all well and starting to think about Christmas! Yes I know some of you may not have had your Summer Holiday yet, lol, me included! However in the crafting world we have to plan ahead and get our Christmas workshops booked and planned well in advance!

I’ve already done two and they were full, and very well received, so you can tell there are some ‘insane’ crafters lol like me out there!

My next Christmas Themed Workshops are Friday 21 August and Saturday 22 August.  The Friday workshop is already full, but there are still spaces on the Saturday workshop. So why not take a look at the projects you will be making and go to the Christmas Themed Workshop Page to book your place for the Saturday workshop.  These are great fun, you make 4 lovely projects, all designed by me, mostly cards, but also gift tags and gift packaging which you get to make too. There’s a raffle too and everyone that joins me at the workshops, whether it’s just one or all of them, can join me in December for my Christmas Get together when the raffle will be drawn.  All the prizes are Stampin’Up! products so you know they are worth having and refreshments will be served during the get together.

If you don’t live close enough to attend my classes/workshops, but you would love to make the projects, please email me and I can look into doing them as an online workshop, along with videos and written tutorials for you to purchase.

So here’s the projects, I hope you like them and they inspire you to go book a space and join me on Saturday 22 August.

Great Saturday Monthly Class!

Hi,

What a great Saturday Monthly Class! So much fun, very lively and we made two amazing Cards!

This is the first one: Sweetbriar Double Gatefold Congratulations Card:

Sweetbriar Double Gatefold Card  Closed Sweetbriar Double Gatefold Card

This card is really eye-catching and everyone that has seen some of the other versions I have made as well as this one has fallen in love with the concept and wanted to make one for themselves!  It fits nicely into a 5″ x 5″ envelope and when ‘blinged’ up well WOW! lol. To see more versions I have made take a look at my Gallery pages here or go to my Pinterest Boards.

We had half an hour remaining of the class so we made a simple birthday card using the Sweetbriar Rose Stamp set again and heat embossing:
Here’s the card:
Sweetbriar Rose Birthday Card

 

I will be teaching the classes this Friday and next Friday how to make them too, hope they have as much fun as the group last Saturday did and they love the cards too!

Here’s the supplies I used for both cards:

Latest Class Projects

Hi,
First of all, sorry I haven’t posted recently, well apart from reminding you of my Coffee n Card which is on this afternoon, lol. I put my back out over a week ago and it took slightly longer than normal to settle.

Still I’m back, yeye! So I thought I would update you with what we got up to in some of my classes and what’s coming up in my next Christmas Themed Workshop in August! I know I know, you are all thinking is this woman mad – Christmas in August! But I can tell you, my last Christmas Themed Workshop was a sell out and we had a great time! lol

So, I’ve done a couple of 1-2-1s this week, and they were great fun and the two ladies that came went away very happy with what they made.
Here is one of the projects, the other project I can’t show, yet! hehe, what do you think? Fancy making it, then get in touch.

However, I have finally finished designing them, so here they are! If you like what you see, go to the Christmas Themed Workshop page and book and pay for your space, don’t leave it though not many spaces left.

Coffee n Card Afternoon

Had a lovely afternoon last Thursday at No.9 Cafe, Bishops Cleeve when I held my first Coffee n Card session.

A couple of lovely ladies sat and chatted, enjoyed a drink and made a lovely card.  One of them kindly took some pictures for me and here’s me holding up the card we made.  The other lady didn’t fancy her picture being taken, so here’s her ‘hands’ lol punching out a butterfly!

We used marbles in July classes!

Hi,
Who would think playing with marbles as ‘Adults’ could be soooo much fun! lol. Very addictive too lol.

In my July classes I had my ladies laughing so much, which, when I described what we were going to do, their faces said ‘you what? yeah right!’ lol was hilarious in itself!

We used the ‘Marbles Technique’ to make a background on both cards. Then we used the Stamp Set, Sprinkles of Life and Tree Builder Punch to create two lovely cards.

So here are the cards we made using marbles, an empty stamp set box, card and some ink refill.

The marbling technique is a great way to get different backgrounds, depending on the colour Ink Refills you use and how you roll the marbles around. I also made my swaps for the Pinkies Training I went to yesterday; a bookmark with a flower on it. I used the Angle Topped Punch and the Pansy Punch. I made a flower using the Bouquet Bigz L Die and big shot and I also used the new Cotton Paper which feels really weird but gave a great result.  In fact in the class on Saturday, a Bumble bee came into the Craft room and it thought the flower was real, flew straight over to it to try and collect the pollen! Bless. One of the ladies rescued it and showed it the real flowers lol. Here’s a couple of pictures of my bookmark, and the flower the bumble bee mistook for a real one lol and another card I showed the ladies as an example of a different way to use the marbling technique.

Here's the lovely flower the bumble bee thought was real
