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
