Greetings, lovely blog visitors, Kirsten here. I hope you are enjoying your weekend so far. Tonight's post is all about Lisa's class in Maidstone yesterday.
Due to the first Friday of January falling so close to the New Year, there was no class then, so yesterday was the first time we'd all met since the Christmas party class in December. It was lovely to see so many familiar faces & to welcome some new ones.
As she always does, Lisa had new crafting goodies to tempt us with & below are the very pretty patterned papers from Lavinia Stamps.
These are some of the new Lavinia stamps that were for sale yesterday. After using them on their card projects, many of the ladies found these stamps "accidentally" falling into their baskets!
Last year, when Lisa had asked for class suggestions, one that received many requests was the resist technique, so she chose to make that the first class of 2013 & combined it with shadow stamping.
These are Lisa's sample cards for yesterday. She made them with WOW
white embossing powder, then stamping with a combination of Distress & Adirondack inks. As someone who is rubbish at creating a scene like this, I was fascinated watching her demonstrate how she builds up the picture, using a few stamps & some ink.
I also loved watching each of the ladies create their own images. No two were the same, but they were all lovely & everyone seemed happy with their projects. It was a class that ended with a great many inky fingers, in shades of blue, purple & green.
Unfortunately, due to previous commitments, there won't be a March class, so Lisa's next class will be on April 5th & the project will be an altered box. I'm not sure if there are any places left, but if you would like to join us, please email Lisa at firstname.lastname@example.org She keeps a reserve list, so your name can be added to that, in case of a cancellation.
I posted the new challenge yesterday. The theme is 'LOVE'. And no, you don't have to make a Valentine's project. :) All the details are HERE. I'll post the winner of the January challenge tomorrow.
I forgot to ask Lisa when the SALE is ending & it's still on the website, so take a few minutes to see what is still available.
I think that's all for now. Thank you for continuing to visit the blog. Until next time, happy crafting.
