November Classes - Painting with Starlights

Good morning blog visitors, I hope you've got sunshine where you are, it's a dull & gloomy day here, unfortunately. This is a quick post about the upcoming Maidstone classes in Fant Hall, Barming, ME16 8NN, on November 6.

We're going to be painting with Imagination Crafts' Starlight paints & using stencils, die cuts & embossing folders to make two Christmas cards. 

Below is a snippet of one of the cards................

You won't be restricted to certain colours, all the Starlights will be available for you to use, so you can let your imagination run wild!

As always, we will supply everything, but there are a few things you need to bring you...........

This Imagination Crafts Diamonds stencil, (or similar)............


You can also bring other Christmas background stencils, such as snowflakes, if you prefer.

You also need to bring the piece of Mylar Lisa gave you at October's Card-io Stamps classes, seen here...........


(There will be one or two of these available, but not enough for everyone, so it is important that you bring yours. New attendees to the class will be given one to keep).

You can bring your own Distress inks, if you choose.

We will have a few embossing machines available, but if you want to bring your own, so that you're not waiting for one to become free, please feel free to do so.

***Please ensure any items you bring are labelled with your name.***

Can I request that, if you know someone attending the class & they don't have access to this blog/Facebook/Twitter, that you forward this information to them?

Thank you.

 There are a few places available in both the afternoon - 2.30-5.30 - and the evening - 6.30-9.30 - classes, so if you would like to attend, please contact us. You can email Lisa;, or phone her on 01622 675 078, or you can message the 

The cost of the class is £16, with tea/coffee & cake provided.

I also want to remind everyone that, as Lisa will be demoing for Imagination Crafts at the NEC in Birmingham that weekend, I will be teaching the classes - don't be scared, I promise to do my best! - and as a result, I will be bringing a lot less stock for the shop than normal.

If there is anything you want to purchase & want me to bring to the classes for you, you need to order early...........

 From Lisa - no later than Tuesday, November 3, she leaves for Birmingham on Wednesday, Nov 4.

After November 3, contact me, either via the Lisa B Designs Facebook page, or my email; isisimaginings{at}gmail{dot}com, before 8pm on Thursday, November 5. That gives me time to put your order together on Friday morning. 

There is new stock coming in & we will make sure we get it onto the website, so that you can see it in plenty of time.

I will end by reminding you of the current blog challenge, which is 'Stamped Christmas Scenes'. It runs until November 8 & if you use Card-io stamps you get a second entry.

 I'll be back on Monday with another of my Card-io stamps projects. Have a great weekend & if you have any questions about the classes, don't hesitate to contact us.

Have a great weekend.
