Hello, welcome to the December newsletter.........
It looks like winter has finally arrived, the last few days have been freezing. Hope you're all managing to keep warm. As usual, it's been a busy month. Thank you to everyone who visited the Imagination Crafts stand at the NEC, two weeks ago. It was a marathon four days of demoing, but it was lovely to speak with lots of crafter's & see them leave inspired & buzzing with creativity.
Since I got back, I have been preparing for the final classes of the year, the Christmas party classes. I look forward to these classes every year, as they are always great fun. We will be using scenic stamps to create a miniature scene, which you will use to make a name badge & then we will use Starlight's paints to make a Christmas card hanger. Here's a sneak peek of the card hanger..........
There will be lots of goodies to eat, including a full buffet, we'll play some party games & generally have fun. If you've attended the classes during the year, make sure you have kept your raffle tickets, as the winner of the Christmas raffle will be chosen.
**Please bring a medium-sized, flat paintbrush & your piece of mylar from last month's class.**
If you would like to bring your own supplies, we will be using the following:
Starlight's Metallic Paints
Glitter Glues (gold, silver)
Jet Black Stazon ink pad/Archival Black ink pad
As usual, the classes will be held in Fant Hall, Barming, Maidstone, ME16 8NN, on Friday, December 4. The afternoon class, 2.30-5.30pm, is fully booked, but there are still places available in the evening class; 6.30-9.30pm. The cost is £18, which covers the cost of your project supplies & food, a deposit of £6 will secure your place. You can contact me by email; firstname.lastname@example.org , or by 'phone; 01622 675078, or message the Lisa B Designs Facebook page.
If you are unable to attend, three days notice of cancellation is required. This gives me time to fill your place & your deposit will be moved to the next available class.
There will be a smaller shop than usual at the classes. I will be bringing mainly Christmas items & a few other things. If there is anything you require, please let me know before 8pm on Thursday, December 4 & I will bring it along the next day.
**Don't forget to wear your Christmas finery, the more sparkles the better!!!**
As well as preparing for the December classes, I have been adding new items to the website, including new stencils from Sweet Poppy......
