1st ever Class re-visited

As you know from previous posts I have had somewhat a busy couple of weeks and admit I have been quite weary this week. I did need a class idea in a hurry so I decided to look back over my old classes and lo and behold there was my first ever class that these new ladies had not done. It was actually quite nostalgic to go back to my first ever class, especially following on from my latest "first" with my all day event last weekend. It made me realise what a journey I have been on in the past 16months and how far I have come from that very first terrifying class.

So here is my samples of the class projects and you can see I have used some of the brand new Cottage Wall papers for the body of the box. I am totally and utterly in love with this set of papers and they will be featuring heavily in my class for June along with the gorgeous new Melon Mambo and Rich Razzleberry.

More images from my All Day Event

Much as I rarely show pictures of myself I had to share these with you. The first shows me with the beautiful bouquet and card that my ladies presented to me as their way of thanking me for their crafting day. You cannot see the true beauty of some of the flowers which were deep burgundy red roses with diamond crystals stuck in them, they are stunning. And the reason I am showing the 2nd pic is to give credit to Jill one of my downline team who looked after half of my ladies for me. She was a star and worked really hard so Thank You Jill.

These last two piccys are to show the TWO real stars of the day, namely my Mum and my nephew Matt who looked after ALL of the catering for the whole day. They served teas, coffees, juices throughout the day and ensured that my ladies wanted for nothing. I have received amazing praise from all my guests for both of them. You were both amazing ........huge thanks.

Better late than never

As promised here are a few pictures of my lovely ladies at my craft event last Saturday. As you can see they were all working hard. Back in a mo with a few more pictures.

I survived my first ever All Day Event !!!!!!!!

Well I am delighted to say that I have survived my first ever All Day Stamping Event.
I had 20 very special guests attend the event, namely my lovely ladies from my classes and craft club. I also had 4 ladies who are brand new to me and it was so nice to see my regular ladies welcome them and make them feel at home today.

We made three complete projects and although we worked hard from 10am to 4pm to fit them all in, every lady was very happy with their creations by the time we finished. We started with a decorative gift box with beautiful carnation style flowers, then on to a decorated card box containing 6 cards ( made from a One Sheet Wonder using Vintage Vogue) and finally onto a gift bag and matching card using the quirky and cute Sweet Pea stamp set and accessories.

There was a buzz about the room all day today and I think I can honestly say everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves. I was asked when I am doing the next "event" and majority were in favour when I tentatively suggested that my next event could be a Christmas projects party in July. If this is something that you may be interested in then please register your interest and email me so that I can contact you once I have worked out the finer details.

For now I will leave you with pictures of our 3 projects and come back tomorrow with photos from the day.

Card Buffet card

Hi there
I have decided not to show the other card my Jaunty ladies made on Friday as I want to use the design for someone who may visit my blog. Instead I will share one of my card buffet cards with you.
The card buffet is what I call my selection of card kits I have available for the members of my new craft club to make if they do not have a project of their own to work on. I had a starting number of 10 card designs for them to choose from and regularly add 5 brand new designs each month, so there is always going to be something new each time we meet. All the materials are provided in a pack and I bring all the stamps, tools, punches etc they need to complete their given cards. So far it has proved a great success and I am really glad I went along with this idea especially for those ladies new to crafting who as yet do not have a massive collection of stamps.

So this is just one of the designs and it has proved quite popular already ( my ladies are "pink" ladies like myself lol)
