Hi everyone, happy August! I'm sure it was only last week that I sent out the July newsletter..... I hope you're having a good week so far, I took advantage of the sunshine yesterday to sit in the garden and make samples for Friday's Maidstone classes.
The theme for the classes is 'Summer with Card-io' and we'll be using some of the lovely new Card-io clear stamp sets, including Pleasant Pastures and Perfect Patch.............
Quantities of all the new stamp sets are limited, so if you're attending one of Friday's classes and you would like to pre-order, please do so by lunchtime on Thursday, August 3.
Here a few sneak peeks of some of my samples............
I've used the new colours of Versacolor inks, which are really lovely and they blend beautifully.
The September issue of Craft Stamper arrived yesterday, as always it's full of fantastic mixed media stamping projects. This issue has lots of beach- and seaside-themed projects to inspire you...........
All the new items can be found in the What's New section of the website.
For those attending Friday's classes, it would be helpful if you could bring a Jet Black Archival inkpad - I will have some for you to use, but if you have your own it saves you having to wait. The same goes for the Card-io stamp sets; if you already have them, please feel free to bring them for your personal use.
***Please ensure your items are clearly marked with your name.***
If you would like to join us in Fant Lane Community Hall, Maidstone ME16 8NN on Friday, there a couple of places left in both classes; 2.30 - 5.30pm and 6.30 - 9.30pm. The class fee is £16 and this includes your projects, a tool kit to use during the class and tea/coffee and a slice of cake. Places must be booked in advance; a deposit of £6, or full payment, will secure your place. Please contact me by lunchtime on Thursday August 3; firstname.lastname@example.org/01622 675078
In other news, the textiles workshop in Grove Green Community Hall on July 23 was a great success. Everyone really enjoyed using the DecoArt SoSoft Fabric paints with Imagination Crafts'Textile Starlights and Rice Papers. If you'd like to see all the projects, visit the July Workshop album on the Lisa B Designs Facebook page. I think it's a workshop worth repeating next year some time, so if you weren't able to attend this time round, keep an eye on the blog's Workshops' page for updates.
I'm now taking bookings for the next workshop, on August 20 and I'll be announcing details of the September 9 workshop soon.
On Sunday, August 27 I'm taking the mobile shop to the Allington Community Association Family Fun Day, it's a FREE event, with lots to enjoy for all the family and I'm taking the opportunity to have a huge sale to make up for there not being an Extravaganza Day this year. I'll be posting updates on the Lisa B Designs Facebook page in the next few weeks.
That's all the news for now. Have a great August and if you're joining us in Fant Lane Community Hall on Friday, i'm very much looking forward to seeing you.
