Hello! Welcome to the May newsletter, I hope you're well & had a nice April. I'm sure that, like me, you're longing for some warmer weather, it has been so cold. It has been lovely to have some sunshine today.
I got back from Peterborough on Sunday, following the latest Imagination Crafts One Day Special on Hochanda on Friday & Saturday. Yet again, it was a very successful few days, the feedback on the new stencils & the MDF storage was very positive & it was very exciting to have the ODS sell out so quickly. Thank you to everyone who purchased from Hochanda. I will be getting the new stencils from Imagination as soon as they become generally available.
I've also been working on projects for the May class, which is this coming Friday, May 6. I'm going to be travelling to Liverpool on Friday, to demo for Imagination Crafts at the Happy Stampers show at Port Sunlight on Saturday, so Kirsten will be teaching the class, ably assisted by Jan, Rose, Julie & Jo. The class projects will be two cards made with the new WOW! embossing powders & glitters. If you haven't seen the gorgeous colours now available, click HERE to see them on the website.
I have added lots of new stencils to the website, fromClaritystamp & That's Crafty. Lots of you will be familiar with Clarity's gorgeous stencils & I'm delighted to be stocking them at last.............
The stencils from That's Crafty are fantastic too. They're approximately 8.5x11.9cm, so they're perfect for adding small areas of detail to your projects...........
I've also added some of That's Crafty white/greyboards surfaces, which are great for inking, stamping, painting etc.........
Other new items include a selection of cutting dies from Craft Emotions. These really are nice & they're ideal for smaller projects - they'd work very well with the That's Crafty Dinky stencils too.
All the recently added items can be seen in the What's New section.
As I said above, the May class projects will be made with WOW! embossing powders & glitters, as well as Distress inks. Here are sneak peeks of a few of my samples............
It would be very helpful if you could bring the following with you;
Versamark ink/embossing ink
Versamark embossing pen/Fine detail embossing pen, eg WOW!
A fine detail paintbrush
**Please ensure your items are labelled with your name/initials.**
There are a few places left in both classes; 2.30 - 5.30 & 6.30 to 9.30. The cost of the class is £16. This includes two projects, your class kit & complimentary tea/coffee & cake. To book your place, you can contact me via email; firstname.lastname@example.org, telephone; 01622 675078, or message the Lisa B Designs Facebook page.
As always, the mobile shop will be open from 2.30 to 9.30pm on Friday. You can, if you prefer, order through the website - no later than 8pm on Thursday night, please - and Kirsten will bring your goods with her on Friday.
**Remember to bring your loyalty cards & cameras, if you would like to take photos of any of our samples.**
That's all the news from me for now.
Hope you have a great May - with warmer weather! I'll be back with the next newsletter in early June.
