Ready For Christmas!

Ready for Christmas! What! I hear you say! I’ve only just got back from my Cruise and have had to put my Christmas Cardmaking Hat on for my LAST Monthly Class this weekend!  I thought I would go out with a bang and have spent all day today creating a most amazing Card! Yes, I know it’s Christmas themed, but once you’ve learnt the technique you can use it for any type of Card – birthday, Anniversary, Wedding, the list is endless! lol

So here is the Card we will be making this weekend. I’ve called it a ‘Pulley Card’, as you pull on a tab and the little dog gets pulled up into the night sky to reveal a very apt saying as it goes!

Isn’t it fun?  It took a lot of playing around and I am exhausted but so chuffed with it! I know one fellow Demonstrator who will love the little doggy! lol

Drop back next week when I will put a table of products used to make this beautiful card.

Let me know what you think, by leaving a comment.

Thanks for dropping by!

Squash Book Tutorial

Hi,

Squash Books! Ever fancied making one and never knew how? Well, now you can, as I have made one (thanks to maymaymadeitcraft for her inspiration) and have written a Tutorial and done a video for you!

number of years squash book
I went to a Pinkies Training in Croughton recently, where fellow Pinkies Demonstrators meet up, and among other amazing activities we do throughout the day, we make Swaps showcasing a project that we have enjoyed making and swap it with our fellow Demonstrators.  My swap was a Squash Book, and I was thrilled that so many loved it and was asked if I would make a video.

 

number of years squash book open
So I thought I would share with you the Squash Book I made, along with the list of Supplies needed to make one yourselves.  Included in the Supply List is my Tutorial which you are welcome to use, but please give me credit! lol. I loved making this squash book and in fact one of my customers that comes every week for a 1-2-1 lesson, asked if I could show her how to make one so she could give it to someone special. I hope you like it too and have a go.
Click on each product to place an order and click on ‘supply list’ at the bottom of the tiled products to get access to the tutorial.

Click on supply List to access the Tutorial and to access the link to the Youtube video.

 Thanks and look forward to seeing your squash books.

Class Cardmaking, Last Class of 2015!

Hi,

OOPS! I forgot to post this! lol What am I! lol  Still as I’ve written it I might as well post it now lol.  Enjoy!

Well that’s it for 2015, well except for the get together next weekend for all my lovely Class customers.  I love this event, seeing all customers coming together, chatting away enthusing about my classes, me hehe, and crafting!  Throughout the Christmas Themed Workshops, I had Raffle Tickets on sale and this will be held during the get together.  Lots of lovely cakes as well as tea/coffee will be served, and the cakes are made by some of the customers/friends so I don’t have to lol.  Read on to see what we made in our last class.

Anyway my last classes were last weekend and were so much fun! We made 10 cards and one Gift bag from One Sheet of Designer Series Paper!  Thanks to Chic n Scratch for her Inspiration and Template.  I changed it slightly and used our Stampin’Up! Notecards. These Notecards/envelopes are great for making multiple cards as you get 20 notecards and 20 envelopes in a pack for £5.50.  This technique is also great for this time of year when you have soooo many Christmas Cards to make and send out! lol

I am looking forward to 2016 and resuming my Classes with Brand New Products from the New Spring/Summer Catalogue that comes out on 5 January 2016.  If you fancy joining me in my classes or live too far away but would love to do the projects, please let me know. My aim is to do Online Classes next year, so keep checking back with me and my blog.

Christmas Themed Workshop – Brilliant!

Hi,

Another Christmas Themed Workshop – Brilliant!  A Brilliant Christmas Themed Workshop last Friday which was so full the table was chaos! lol  What a brilliant morning, full of crafting, filled with lovely ‘crafty’ people and amazing projects (if I do say so myself hehe) to be made.

I absolutely love these Workshops, as ladies from all of my Group Classes as well as those who attend my 1-2-1’s have a chance to meet those from the groups they do not usually meet, and ‘gossip’! lol  Friday’s workshop was full-on but everyone had a brilliant time and all the projects I designed were loved.  There was so much glitter thrown around, you should have seen the room! lol.

Here are the projects that were made and underneath each one is a supply list.  If you wish to purchase any of the products, please click on the product, which will take you to my Online shop where you can place your order and have them delivered directly to your door, in time to make your own for Christmas!
