Juan Sheet!!

So tomorrow's workshop - CHRISTMAS!!!! No getting away from it now the shops have got Christmas stuff in. So tomorrow one of our demos is a challenge demo - make a set of Christmas cards out of one sheet of paper - (not "Juan Sheet" of the Plenty Kitchen Roll advert as the title suggests!) Choose your background paper, decide how to cut it up to get maximum usage, jazz up the paper a bit if you like, then add embellishments and greetings. Job done and Christmas cards started - (next year's for you Mandy!!)

The second demo will be punch art/die cut cards using basic shapes as a starting point for Christmas themed cards like the tree below. 

Also don't forget to bring your challenge cards this month - new card from old. And we will have a new Christmas take home challenge for you too.

Hopefully your altered mirrors are coming along well for the Christmas competition too. If you haven't had chance yet you might want to come along to our Saturday workshop on Saturday 5th October. We will be making items suitable for gifts for Christmas using scrapbook papers and Mod Podge. This is a technique that works well with the mirrors and many other things. Other projects could include coasters and table mats, washer necklaces, tins, glass vases, card organiser boxes, Countdown to Christmas decorations etc. Mod Podge mania!!

Some of the projects are quicker than others so both full and half day workshops will be available again.

Workshop Costs:

 Half Day (10am-1pm or 1pm-4pm) - £6 Members, £7 Non-Members

 Full Day (10am-4pm) - £10 Members, £12 Non-members

See you tomorrow.

  1. I was confusing the overseas visitors to my blog with the "Juan Sheet" reference so have add a youtube video of the advert - I am still giggling. Thanks for your comment Michelle, don't have your e-mail to reply. BJ
