Journal covering for tomorrow…… everyones will be different.

Embossing paste for Wednesday afternoon….

Heat embossing Tuesday and Wednesday evening

Sweet and Simple on Saturday…….


The start of another week tomorrow

It has been a busy weekend, Our Creative Den was at Southowram community rooms all day Saturday as part of the scarecrow festival. It was a lovely day. I met lots of lovely folk and the sun shone all day. I am quite burnt! The notebooks I covered last week went very well and we will be making more in the Den on Tuesday afternoon. Lots of daubing, colouring, a little stamping and much sticking. Should be fun. I will post pictures tomorrow morning.

Wednesday is the regular monthly class, we will be working with embossing paste. 3 cards using it in three different ways. So a very messy afternoon. There are places left in this group if you would like to join us for craft chat and cake please get in contact. Again pictures to follow tomorrow morning.

And next Saturday is the first ‘Sweet and Simple’ class. The designs for this class are unusual and I think you will love them. I will give you a sneak peek on Tuesday. This will be a very relaxing couple of hours. Take a couple of hours of ‘me’ time 1.30 -3.30, crafting is great for relaxing.

Finally don’t forget the Christmas in July day on the 29th. Lots of details on the workshop page, scroll down! Have  a great week folks

Christmas in July

This is now an award winning class! One of the top demonstrators in the USA awarded me a prize for the design of these cards. Whoop Whoop. They are clean and simple, suitable for beginners as well as experienced crafters. The workshop will give you enough goodies to go home and create lots more – but  you will need to order the stamp set . As a bonus for everyone who orders the stamp set I will give you a free set of cut card for another 12 makes.

I am offering 2 time slots, 10.00 – 1.00 and 2.00 – 5.00 Tea/coffee will be available all day and there will be cake!  Go on get them started early come and join me for a fun few hours in the den.
