First workshop of the year...

...and we have gone all romantic! Guess what the theme is for Wednesday?!! We have sifted through the questionnaires we have had returned so far and totted up your votes for the various themes. From that we have drawn up a draft schedule of the most popular themes (it is only draft at this stage as we have not had input from everyone yet.) After this week we should be able to finalise it and then let you know our plans for the year ahead.

So we are starting the year with a Love and Romance theme in time for Valentine's Day, but for those who don't celebrate it there will be a few wedding/engagement themed resources too. We will be making use of our 'Hearts' range of stamps - see catalogue link for details. Michelle is going to be using Nestabilities to demonstrate her 'stamping out of the box' (or heart!) technique and I will be focusing on creating shaped cards from regular card blanks, like the heart 'spring card' below.

We know some of you prefer to do your own thing sometimes, so we will have a 'free love' table too!! We have sorted out some decoupage, dies and embellishments on a Love and Romance theme, which will be available on this table. And obviously if you want to bring your own resources or projects, then please feel free to bring them along.

Don't forget to bring your membership renewal money if your membership is due in January and more importantly don't forget to come to St Michael's at the later time of 8pm!! The car park is behind the church - entry off The Marld and we will be in the Church Hall - through the double doors off the car park.

See you there.


  1. Wow! This valentines card is so lovely. Do you offer card making tutorials? It would be great to learn from you.
