Online Crafting to your door

Hi, after a successful set of 4 online craft classes, I am now looking at running my second.

This one will be slightly different, in that you have a choice of adding additional products to the basic kit…and customise it as you wish

The crafting pack is aimed at all crafters and will be delivered to your door and will include all components (except stamps/stamped images to make a minimum of 8 cards. You will have lots of spare to make your own cards after.

Here’s some of the projects for this set of classes;

So, whats included….

  • 10 card bases and envelopes
  • 6 6”x12” sheets designer series papers
  • embellishments
  • assorted die cut pieces including words
  • ribbon
  • 1/2 pack of Peaceful Poppy elements

PLEASE NOTE..THERE WILL BE NO STAMP SET INCLUDED WITH THIS KIT- these are to be purchased as an extra or use your own

All products will co ordinate and will be delivered to your door at a cost of £20

A tutorial for each card will be available on a closed Facebook Page….buy your kit, and either craft along or make in your own time ( there will be 2 cards per week for 4 weeks).

If you would like to add any stamps/dies/bundles on top of the basic card kit, then you will recieve a £5 discount on your card kit. Please choose from the options below ;

Other products available…contact me for more details

Order your kit between May 14th and May 22nd at 4pm, I will then order all supplies and send out kits as soon as they arrive. Please leave a minimum of 3 weeks from the close of order date for delivery (particularly during the covid 19 restrictions) as as well as awaiting delivery I will hopefully then have time to prepare packs to be sent out to you.

Postage is included.

Online workshop

Yesterday, I pushed myself further out of my comfort zone and did my first of 4 planned online workshops. I was joined by 6 lovely crafters for a ‘facebook live’ session, working with me to make up two project kits that I had previously posted out to them. I wasn’t too sure how well it would work, but using Facebook Live meant that the video was available afterwards for those who wanted to ‘make’ in their own time.

All projects over the 4 weeks use the Graces Garden Stampset, so all participating had purchased this. I used the mini pizza boxes for the first project, and the lovely Garden Lane Designer series papers, and supplied pre cut shapes from the co ordinating die set. I was worried that stamping onto an already cut shape might prove difficult, but most seemed to manage fine, but there was spare card to use incase of mess ups!

The sentiment was a mix of 2 that are in the stamp set, carefully ‘merged’ by using masking tape.

The second project was a card, again using the Garden Lane papers. This time we carefully removed the bottom part of the gate arch to make a solid piece to stamp the greeting on, before placing the die cut gate over.

The flowers were stamped onto the pre cut shape, coloured with the medium of our choice (I used water colour pencils for mine) and glued next to the gate after layering the paper and daffodil yellow card.

If lockdown continues, I am planning on doing more online workshops. If you are interested…contact me

Facebook Live makes

Since Covid 19 and lockdown, i have been doing Facebook Lives every Monday and Thursday.

I’ve decided I perhaps ought to show you what I’ve been doing. Each day is still available to view, so if you want to go back over any, then you can, or better still join me ‘Live’ on Monday at 11am (BST) and Thursdays at 2pm (BST).
