Christmas Workshop Event - Thursday 29th September

For those of you I have not contacted already, I am planning a Christmas workshop on Thursday 29th September (next Thursday) or Friday 30th September depending on numbers.

Here is a sneek preview of the gorgeous garland I am planning for the evening along with some additional make-and-takes.  The evening will be full of crafting, fun and chat.  You will be taking home your very own garland to proudly display over your mantlepiece or on a feature wall and learning techniques for working with exciting products.  Included will be demonstration of working with the on-board to create the 3D lettering.

All materials will be provided and you will go home with a bag of goodies to complete your own projects at home.  The cost of the workshop will be £12 which is the cost of the product including the luxurious satin ribbon.  You must book in advance for this so I can prepare the materials, so don't delay, get in touch.

Cheeky Monkey Cards

I have finally got round to taking some more pictures of the wonderful cards and items I have been busy making.  Here are the pictures of the Cheeky Monkey Tea Party cards and items I made for the NCT fundraiser (I am not quite sure why the blog has rotated the pictures back round).

All the cards are using my favourite stamp set 'Fox and Friends' which was perfect for the fundraiser with it's little monkey stamp.  I made some simple lollipop covers using my scallop circle and the box bag was from a template I found online.  Attaching a big designer button with linen thread and attaching the handle with matching grosgrain ribbon made the bag look fabulous.

NCT Cheeky Monkey Tea Party

Well I have just got back from the NCT fundraiser where I setup my first stall to showcase my work so far and see if everyone likes what I have been doing.  I was really pleased with how the stall looked after dressing it and received some great comments on my cards.

Welcome all - here is my new blog space

Welcome to my newly created blog.  I hope to add posts here and photos of all my crafting activities as an independent Stampin' Up! demonstrator.
