April Newsletter

Hello my lovelies,

Happy April, can you believe it is April already? Where is this year going? It is great to see the weather changing though and the lovely Sun coming it, I don't know about you but it makes me feel so much better!
Apologies for the lateness of this Newsletter, I have been somewhat snowed under this week, with one thing and another.
So....we have the long awaited Distress Oxide Class on Saturday 20th April, between 10am and 3pm at Grove Green Community Hall, ME14 5BT and it is fully booked. I have some great things in store for you!
Those of you attending, we will be using the following items, so if you have any of the following and can bring them with you it may save you having to wait for items:
Distress Oxide Inks, heat gun, fine nozzle water spray bottle, Stamping Press or large acrylic block, favourite background stencils (male orientated), fine paint brush, clear embossing powder, apron and gloves if you don't like messy hands, baby wipes, kitchen roll.
I will of course have some amounts of these items but you may have to share, if you don't like sharing then bring them with you. Items will be available to buy at the shop too.
Prepare to get messy ladies!!

This is a sneak peek at one of the sample cards......

The next workshop coming up after this one is on Sunday May 13th and is a textile workshop. I have been asked to re-run the canvas bag workshop as a few people missed out but there are two options for this one, either the canvas tote bag or a fabric cushion cover. In this workshop you will learn how to use fabric paint on to fabric using various techniques, also using stencils, stamps aand rice paper to create a wonderful piece of art that you can use in the home or whilst out shopping.
The cost of the workshop is £30.00 and can be booked on the website HERE
The following workshop is on 26th May and is the Foam Flower Card making Master Class.
In this class you will learn how to make different types of foam flowers and make up to four cards. You will also get £10.00 worth of goods to take home with you included in the class price. You can book this workshop HERE

February Newsletter


Hello!  Happy February and a belated happy new year, I hope 2018 is treating you well so far. January was a bit of a wash out as both Kirsten and I were ill with the horrible flu that has been going around. It was very disappointing that I had to cancel the January workshop, but we just couldn't have done it. We're feeling much better now, so it's onwards and upwards.............


Saturday February 10, between 10am and 3pm, will be the first workshop of the year at Grove Green Community Hall, ME14 5BT and I've got two options..................

The theme is Spring Floral and the first option is a 30x40cm canvas panel. You will use an assortment of mediums, including paint, texture paste, stencils etc., greyboard flowers from That's Crafty and create your own foam flowers to add extra dimension to your project.



The cost for this option is £30.00 and includes the canvas panel and all the materials.


To book online click HERE or telephone me on 01622 675078.


The second option is to use the same materials and techniques to create FOUR 7x7 Spring cards. The cost for this option is £25.00 and again, all materials, including card blanks and card to use as your substrate, is included.
