Jubilee Jamboree

With two big events coming up next week, i.e. the Diamond Jubilee and of course a Jubilee themed Village Day hot on its heels, we thought we had better plan a workshop for Wednesday that incorporates both of these themes. I will be demoing how to make red, white and blue themed gift bags (available also for sale on our Village Day stall!) complete with an English rose tag. You will have the option of making a complementary paper piecing card too, using up the scraps of red, white and blue papers left over from the gift bags.

Michelle has found some cute little owl gift boxes on the "Card a la carte" blog and will be showing you how to make them. Would be good to have some of these to sell on our stall too as they will add a bit of colour and "aaah" value! So if you don't have anyone in mind when you make yours, label it clearly with your membership number and we can put it up for sale (or adoption!) on the stall.

Also a little reminder checklist of other things to bring to Wednesday's workshop:
  • Cards for selling at Village Day - in cellophane bags and clearly labelled with your membership number and sorted into categories please.
  • Membership Pack Card Competition entry (any theme, but the card must contain at least 5 elements from the Membership Pack), to be judged at Village Day. 
  • "White on White" club challenge card. This will be judged on the night for a chance to win free entry into one of our monthly workshops.
The crafting just never stops! Michelle, Karen and I had a craft-filled day on Saturday at one of the Little Claire's workshops down in Crawley. We all made eight cards each, using the Little Claire design stamps (which just happen to be Karen's favourites!)

Thank you to Georgina and Heidi from the Design Team at Little Claire's, and to Steve and Heidi's husband who kept us well supplied with tea! Check out their blog and see if you can spot us in the photo hard at work! I have now added a link to both their shop and blog on the sidebar too.  Please let me know your favourite inspirational blogs, websites, online shops etc so we can check them out, then add them to our lists to share with others.

See you all on Wednesday.
