A weekend of wreaths

The burlap and blooms wreath is a great kit for a get together of family and friends. This weekend I had the delight of creating with two lovely groups of ladies, who each created a unique and beautiful wreath.

On Friday it was the turn of Gemma and her family! All three generations of the family gathered along with her aunt and sister in law for a night of creative fun. They had loads of fun experimenting to create different flowers!

The family were divided between those who craft regularly and those for whom this was their first experience, but I bet you can't tell who's who from the finished results!

Then on Saturday it was onto Amy's house, she invited the girls from work to have a great girly time! It was definitely different to their day jobs - they are all engineers! There was lots of banter but eventually, fulled by minstrels and domino's...wreaths were completed. What do you think?

Would you like to create a wreath? You can get the kit here for £15.95 or alternatively get in touch and arrange a wreath class. In addition to the kit, you get all the adhesive you require as well as step by step instructions and advice. The wreath class costs £25 per person but anyone who books and pays by March 31st gets a £5 discount!

Love getting back to simplicity...

On the first Tuesday evening of the month I run Wellington wi craft club. It always sneaks up on me and I've never got a project ready to take that won't require me to take everything! So this month I went back to pure simplicity. 

I grabbed a pile of prefolded white cards, a couple of boxes of stamps, and three stampin' write markers and armed with my stamp bag* off I went.

*My stamp bag contains the tools I always need when I'm stampin, but usually will forget one so now I keep them all together! It's got my stampin scrub - with spray, my stamp-a-ma-jig -with the transfer sheet and finally my clear blocks.

So, in between chatting this is what I came up with...
The colours I chose were smokey slate, pool party and island indigo. The stamps were petite petals, perfect pennants, Betsy's blooms, yippee-skippee and the banner blast. I also found a roll of the washi tape in my handbag, so used that too! I love the combination of arrows with the 'sending good thoughts your way' sentiment! 

Here are some closer up shots...

This is also a great example of how cards doesn't always need to be expensive to be beautiful!

New party class

I've had lots of people lately contact me about wanting to 'have a bit more of a go' but not wanting to spend loads, so with this in mind I have launched 

The hip hip hooray party is great for those who don't know many people, particularly many people who craft. It's also a great way to spend some time with friends or family without knowing you have to spend to continue after the party! Although designed with adults in mind it is suitable for those looking for an alternative childrens party, as long as there are adults to help with younger guests. It is just thirty pounds to book your party, with the final numbers and rest of payment (if having more than three people) due 10 days before your party. 

Why not plan an afternoon of craft to hide from those April showers?
