Good morning all and what a fantastic day it is!

I have a couple of things to show you today which I hope you will like.

The first is a photo of the project we will making at the June classes, as I didnt think the one I have already posted does it justice.
I have used a different paper, still from the Sale a Bration pack and a different ribbon colour. There will be various designs for you to choose from if you decide to join the class and I will need to know asap so that I can ensure we have enough materials for all.

The second project I thought I would show you is some cards I made using up some scrap from the overflowing scraps box. Still more to go! Its not my own design but one I have copied from a lady called Karin Menghini. Its using the Little Leaves Big shot sizzlets die and the boho flowers punch. A simple but elegant card I thought and a great way to use up bits and pieces.

Embossing Class

Morning all! Sorry I have been a very bad blogger again, but time just seems to be flying by. I just seem to have time to prepare for classes, then they have come and gone and its on to the next one!

The next ones are on 11th & 12th June and we will be making a card tote bag suitable for all those odd shaped presents you need to package and a matching card. You will also receive a pack of pearls to take home and glam up your other projects. There are still places available on both classes so let me know if you wish to attend and I will put your name down. Furthur details on the classes page.

On the subject of classes, I have been asked to do an embossing class so I have arranged with hubby to have the house on the evening of the 19th June. There will be 6 spaces, 2 of which have gone, at a cost of £6. We will look at the inks and embossing powders you need, have a play and make a card or two using embossing techniques. Heat embossing is a great way to add dimension and colour to your designs, as it gives a rised and shiny outline to your images. Once again let me know if you would like to come.

Still looking for party hostesses and Stampers group members. I have three ladies chopping at the bit waiting to order, mainly from the new summer mini.

Saturday's craft fair

Morning ladies and what a grey one it is. Lets hope the weather improves, so that I can get the kids out in the garden to burn off some energy, while I spend some time playing with my bits from the new summer mini catty.

Thanks to those ladies that came along to see me on Saturday morning, to have a go on the make & take table and benefit from a 10% discount on their orders.

I was also taking names for my new stampers group and had a lovely new lady Sarah join the crew! If you love Stampin Up this is a great way to build up your stash and also earn free Stampin Up products, without holding a party. The group will commit to spend £150 between them, which is the required amount to start earning hostess benefits. Every month one member will take it in turn to become the 'virtual hostess' and receive the hostess benefits. Everyone who joins my Stampers 10 club will also receive a free copy of the Stampin Up catalogue if they don't already have one. If you would like to join please let me know.

I also had my booking basket with me, where anyone could pick a small thank you gift for booking a party or mini card class with me or Helen. I still have it handy so also let me know if you have a free date to gather a few friends together for a fun evening of creating. The mini card classes cost £6 per person, but they will go home with 5 cards crafted by themselves. If you just want to host a party there will be a demo by myself and Helen plus a small make & take so that your friends can have a little play with the products.

Helen and I will be busy over the next few days preparing for the Men & Boys card class next week. Still a couple of places but you will need to be quick if you would like to join us.

Craft Fair

Just to remind you crafty chaps out there that although the Craft Day at the Scout Hall, Linden Park has been postponed, I will be at the Handmade Down South craft fair at the Wick Hall between 9.30 and 12.30 Saturday morning instead.

I will have the new Stampin' Up! mini catalogue and some samples for you to have a look at. All orders placed tomorrow will receive a 10% discount and there will also be a card "make & take" available too.

There will be many other stalls too including the cup cake ladies and a childrens photographer, so pop it and take a look. Free entry and a raffle in aid of the hall roof.
