March 2019 - change of plan

Unfortunately, Brenda is not able to take the class in March, so we will be doing her card in April  instead.

Therefore in March, Jackie will be leading the class and we will be making this tall stepper card.

February 2019

This month we are making some more birthday cards... the class will be led by Jackie, and you will need to bring with you your normal crafting kit, including a pair of decoupage (small) scissors, some colouring pencils or pens.  All other materials will be provided.

The first card will be made using stamps and a mask


The second card will be made using an embossing folder and distress inks.  The paper may not be the same as in the example - but it will be similar.



The third card will be made using a project sheet where the images are cut out and decoupaged.

January 2019

A new year begins!  We will be making 3 cards this month in a class led by Shirley.

The first card will be showing how you can use the "waste" from an ornate die to make a card.


The second will be showing how a plain die cut can be coloured to suit your card.



The third card is a clean and simple (CAS) card made using a simple punch/die technique.


You will need to bring your normal crafting kit with you, plus some colouring pencils or pens, or paints.  All other materials will be provided.

Happy New Year!

Another year has finished and a new one has begun.  I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas and New Year's Eve and are now ready for a new crafty year!

I am in the process of updating the list of dates in the side bar for the various classes, and hope this is helpful.  We are also starting to think about our Hautbois weekend away in April - planning sessions will be held soon!  I will post more information about the schedule and projects as things are agreed.   One sneaky hint though will be that the box frames I have ordered for one session have arrived....

You will just need to bring your regular craft kit (glue, double sided tape, scissors, craft mat) as all other materials and equipment will be provided.
