Clever Cards for Christmas!!
Well Easter actually, but the originals above were for Christmas (and Easter doesn't alliterate - if there is such a word!) And before you think we have completely lost the plot, let me explain...
For this month's workshop Michelle and I have decided to place the demos in the capable hands of three of our members, who produced some very "clever cards for Christmas" last year (see piccies above). Marilyn will be showing you how to make easel cards, Carole E will be showing you the 3D pop up effect one in the middle and Pat T will be demoing her accordion style Christmas competition winner. Obviously it is too early for Christmas cards (even for us card makers!) so the designs will be adapted for Spring/Easter cards. So now does it all make sense?!
So while Marilyn, Pat and Carole are doing their demos Michelle and I will be putting our feet up and having a cuppa or two!! Actually, we have been busy sorting and bagging the stamps we have acquired, so that we can distribute them at the workshop, for cataloguing. If you have offered to help, make sure you take home a bag of stamps and some card to stamp them on to. More instructions will be given on the night.
Michelle has been back to the Grange Shop in Bookham to take the proceeds of the sale at last month's workshop. The lady there was very pleased and Michelle has restocked with a few more bits and pieces to sell this month. She will also be bringing along some PartiCraft discontinued stock - stamp sets, shimmer paints, 12 by 12 papers etc. So bring lots of pennies! And don't forget to bring membership renewal money too, if your membership is due to be renewed this month.
A reminder also that Ally Pally is on in April - Sat 10th and Sun 11th. Michelle is on the PartiCraft stall doing demos so do go along and say hello if you are planning to visit. For the jewellery makers amongst you, The Big Bead Show is on at Sandown the following Saturday - 17th April.
See you all on Wednesday.
