Three more in May...

Jackie will be leading the class in May, and we will be making three cards again.  Usual craft kit will be required - all materials for distress inking will be provided.

The first card will feature an aperture, and we will be colouring the embossed areas using distress inks.  The inside of the card will feature some bright cheerful background paper, and will feature a die cut butterfly.  You can of course add any additional embellishments of your choice.

 The second card will also feature butterflies - but this time printed butterflies will be fussy cut to finish off a pretty square card.

The final card is the one with the choice... for a lady, you can use the floral squares, or if it is needed for a man, then you can use the anchors/nautical themed squares on your card.

The sentiment is the same in both cases.

A trio of cards for April!

Shirley is leading the class in April, and we will be making a trio of cards!  All you will need to bring is basic crafty kit - scissors, glue, etc.

The first card will be made using Meercats images and will be perfect for a birthday or an anniversary!
We are taking a trip to the exotic for the second project - a Pollyanna Pickering Tiger, just right for the big cat lovers!

 And last, but not least, a pretty teacup easel card, which will be loved by the ladies...

December Christmas Workshop

It's going to be a fun packed day at the Christmas workshop this year.

We'll be making a very special Downton Abbey based Christmas card - this session will be led by Brenda, and all materials will be provided.

We will also be making a Christmas decoration which will feature a candle silhoutte jar in the second session, which will be led by Shirley.  Again, all materials (including the jar!) will be provided for you.

If you want to do either of these sessions and you are not already booked in, you will have to let Jackie know by SUNDAY 10TH DECEMBER 2016.  If you have not told us by this date, there will not be a pack available for you.

November - Christmas is coming!

How can it be November already???

We will be getting ready for the fastly approaching Christmas rush with 2 lovely Christmas cards this month in a class led by Shirley.

For both cards all materials needed will be provided, but you should bring with you your basic craft kit - scissors, glue, ds tape etc.

The first card will be made using an embossed piece of backing card with gilding wax and a layering technique and decorated with ribbon.

The second will be a window scene, but a photo isn't available for this one yet.  I'll post it as soon as I have it!

September 2016

Where has the summer gone?  Classes start again on 24th September and this time round Jackie will be leading with *whispers* Christmas cards.

You will need your basic craft kit, plus colouring pens/pencils, although some will be available if you don't have any.

The first will feature a snowglobe (it was supposed to be a shaker card, and still may be if I can figure out how to do it in the time).

The second card will be a coloured in image using woodware stamps - you will have two images to choose from and enough materials to make the second using your own base card at home!
