Hello everyone, how are you? I hope you're well. Dropping in to remind you that the Crafter's Companion Christmas card making workshop is this coming Sunday, November 11, at Grove Green Community Hall, ME14 5BT, between 10am and 3pm.
As usual, it's been a bit hectic here. I got back on Sunday night from the Hobbycraft Christmas show at the NEC - it was great fun and so busy! - and I've hardly stopped since, there's still lots to do before Sunday.
I'd like to say a huge thank you for the lovely response to the new stamp sets I designed for Hobby Art. They were very successful on Hochanda and almost sold out at the NEC, but I managed to get a few sets for the Lisa B Designs' website........
 
 
In other news, I have a very limited quantity of the latest Distress Oxide inks available on the website. These are the final twelve colours..............
 
 
At this Sunday's workshop, we'll be using Crafter's Companion stamp and die sets to make Christmas cards. The workshop fee includes a stamp and die set, plus a separate die, to use during the workshop and to take home afterwards. Here's a snippet of one of the samples..............
 
 
For those of you attending the workshop, here is a list of what we are going to be using, but PLEASE don't worry if you don't have any of them as there will be some of each to use. If you do have any of them and want to bring them with you, it may save you having to wait for items:
 
Die Cutting Machine
Heat Gun
Onyx Black Versafine Ink/Black Archival Ink
Distress Oxides
Tumbled Glass Distress Ink
Clean Colour Pens
Clear/Coloured Wink of Stella Pens

The mobile shop will be open during the workshop, please feel free to drop in if you're in the area.
 
 
That's all from me for now. Have a great November and good luck if you're starting your Christmas preparations.
Hugs, Lisa B xx

Hello lovelies,
How are we all this month?
Well the class day is looming upon us and is this Saturday 11h August between 10am and 3pm at Grove Green Community Hall, ME14 5BT.
I am really looking forward to this class as we are going to throw caution to the wind and really get stuck in!! 
If you love techniques, then this is the one for you! 
When it comes to journalling people tend to think, well what's it all about? Sometimes it can be somebody's personal journey, or a place to put down experiences, memories or even thoughts. But for me it is a place that I tend to put my techniques in to. We all know that as we get older the old grey matter doesn't store things quite as well as it used to. So to be able to have a book that I call my technique bible is brilliant as when I get to those times ( and yes I get them too!! ) that I have a mental block and think, how did I do that? I can remember the first bit but it goes blank from there? Then I take out my technique bible and eureka there it is along with notes!
Whether it is cards, canvases or journalling or even all of them, it really doesn't matter as the techniques will apply to all. It is just a matter of size, so to speak. If you do wish to make four cards instead  of the journal, using the techniques then give me a ring and I can arrange it. The price will then be £25.00 for the day.
Below are some snippets of just some of the pages that I have done for the day using lots of different techniques......

There are still a couple of places if you would like to attend the class. You can book on the website HERE or ring me on:01622 675078 to book in.

Now.........
For those of you attending the class, there is a long list of what we are going to be using but PLEASE don't worry if you don't have any of the following items as there will be items of each to use. But if you do and you want to bring them with you, it may save you having to wait for items:
Heat Gun
Anti Static Bag/Wow embossing powders: Clear, Clear Sparkle and Black Twinkle
Black Versafine Ink/Black Archival Ink/Clear Emboss pad or Versamark pad
Distress Oxides/Clean Colour Pens
White Gesso/Deco Art Paints
Structure Paste/Metal Palette Knife
PaperArtsy Infusions/Starlights Paints Gold/Silver
Black and White Sharpie Pen/Permanent Fine Liner 
Paint Brushes: Flat, Stencil and Splatter
Favourite Background Stencils if you wish to use them
Journalling or Favourite Stamps (largish) if you wish to use them
I will of course have some amounts of these items but you may have to share, if you don't like sharing then bring them with you. 
Items will be available to buy at the shop too.
Prepare to get messy and creative ladies!!

As many of you may know by now, I have been designing stamps for the lovely Jenny Mayes over at Hobby Art and the next class after this one is on Sunday 9th September and is based on my stamp designs and the wonderful Clean Colour pens. The class is getting booked up very quickly for this one, so if you wish to come and join in the fun then you can book HERE . There are three choices of stamp sets to play with: Snowy Wishes, Gnomes or Floral Patchwork. Just remember when you book online to add your choice in the comments box and click store pickup in the postage stage.

Workshops must be booked and paid for in advance.
My mobile shop will be present during the workshops and is open to all, so if you're in the area feel free to drop in.
You can find all the new products in the What's New section. If you require anything in particular on the class day, please email me as I do not bring the entirety of the shop to the hall as there is too much stock!
