Four Feathers Stamp Set

Here is one of the projects we made on Tuesday at the Wick Hall craft evening. It is using the Four Feathers stamp set, which is in the Winter Mini catalogue. Its a great little set and a snip at £9.95 for the clear mount set. Also comes with matching framelits for £11.95 or £18.50 if yoy buy together.

Products from this catalogue are only available till the 5th of January, when it will be replaced by the new Spring Mini, and may not go into the new main catalogue.

So if there is anything you wanted, but didnt get round to ordering from the Winter Mini not much time left!

Christmas Party

The year is coming to an end and the next craft evening at Wick Hall, on 2nd December will be the last one for 2014.  As we have done for the last few years, we use it as an excuse for a little party, with nibbles and drinks.

Not only will we be eating and drinking, but of course there will be a few seasonal crafty projects too.

The cost of a party bag will be £10, which will include refreshments and the materials required to make all your festive projects, plus a couple of treats, along with a Christmas raffle.

If however you just want to pop in to see what we do and join us for nibbles and drinks, you are more than welcome. There will be a few spare craft projects if you fancy having a go too.

Party bags will need to be booked by 22nd November so that I can get everything ready for the evening.

Christmas time.....

Not that long now till that special time of the year, when crafters are in their element, creating cards and other seasonal projects. With that in mind, next months Wick Hall card class is once again on a Christmas theme. On Tuesday I showed my ladies two projects that I had in mind and because they didn't all want to do the same one, I have given them the choice of making the advent boxes or 8 cards.
To make the cards it is £10 and to make the boxes £12.50.
If you would like to join us on Tuesday 4th November 7 - 9 pm at the Wick Hall, please let me know by 25th Oct so that I can order the correct amount of materials.

To make the cards only the cost is £10, although you will need to bring your own pens, £18.50 to include 3 pens and £27.50 for the pens and stamp, should you want to make some more at home.

Teacher Treat Idea's

Here is a sneeky peek of one of idea's for teachers treat's that I will be showing at the coffee morning on 12th July. The boxes are from Stampin Up, are flat packed and easy to assemble. All you need to do is decorate and fill with beautiful smelling tealights or votives. You could also fill them with sweeties or even homemade cakes and cookies as they are also food safe!

The long boxes are £6.25 for a pack of 8 (only 78p per box) and the square decorative window boxes are £4.50 for 6 (75p) each. A great price and we also do plain square kraft boxes which would be fab for party bags and easily decorated to what ever theme you choose.

I can also supply PartyLite candles to go in them, as I have just signed up as a consultant. Let me know if you fancy holding a party or just want to top up on your existing candles. If you really dont want to have everybody around why not just  have a party pack to look at with family and friends. I will pick the order up from you and you will still be able to benefit from the hostess offers.

Todays Post

Thought I would show you todays make. I was asked to make a wedding card for my cousins daughter and to put the bride and grooms name on it. No idea of the theme or colour of the wedding so went with gold and white. Also made a box envelope with enough depth so that the roses dont get crushed.

Opps didnt finish again!

Sorry to my Tuesday night ladies that we didnt get to finish the project again. I think next time, we will have to start dead on 7 and maybe have tea at the table, so we can get the pen holder and journal completed before you leave the building!!

Having a party, special celebration or getting married and fancy having a go at making your own invites. Then what about these for an idea.
Using the Simply Fabulous card pack and My Digital Studio, Stampin Up's new digital design package, it couldnt be easier and quicker. Using MDS for the backing paper and the wording took no time at all and of course can be tailored to your needs.

MDS is also useful for making a quick card without having to get all your stash out and great for posters, flyers etc, aswell as your digital scrap book layouts. A real bargin at only £13.95!
The card pack makes 8 cards and comes complete with envelopes and embellishments to glam up your creation.

Contact me if you want some!

Embossing project

Here is a card I made a couple of weeks ago using a technique show to us at convention in Manchester last year. The butterfly image has been embossed with white, gold and silver to give a mulitcoloured effect. Simple to do but with stunning results. I have used the gold foil sheets, that are in the current seasonal catty, to matt the design on which makes the image really stand out.

As the card is slighty larger than a normal envelope I have made my own envelope with the recently introduced Envelope Punch Board, which is my favorite product of the moment and a snip at £17.95. I will be placing an order this weekend if you want me to order one for you.

Happy New Year!!!!

I would like to wish you all a Happy New Year and hope that you all had a fab Christmas. Time to get back to normal over the next few days, including my crafting activities.

One of my New Years resolutions will be to look more closely at the products in the catalogue and to have a play with them.

My recent find which I have found so very useful, are the Big Shot multipurpose adhesive sheets on page 174 of the main catty. I have used them while preparing for next weeks class and found them so easy and quick and marvelous for difficult shapes whether die cut or punched out shapes. Would fully recommend and at £13.50 for 12 sheets. not that expensive. Just stick the card that you are going to cut onto the sheets and cut away. Peel off the backing and stick away. Simples!!!
