Lisa B Designs Newsletter

Hello lovelies,
How are we all this month?
Well the class day is looming upon us and is this Saturday 11h August between 10am and 3pm at Grove Green Community Hall, ME14 5BT.
I am really looking forward to this class as we are going to throw caution to the wind and really get stuck in!! 
If you love techniques, then this is the one for you! 
When it comes to journalling people tend to think, well what's it all about? Sometimes it can be somebody's personal journey, or a place to put down experiences, memories or even thoughts. But for me it is a place that I tend to put my techniques in to. We all know that as we get older the old grey matter doesn't store things quite as well as it used to. So to be able to have a book that I call my technique bible is brilliant as when I get to those times ( and yes I get them too!! ) that I have a mental block and think, how did I do that? I can remember the first bit but it goes blank from there? Then I take out my technique bible and eureka there it is along with notes!
Whether it is cards, canvases or journalling or even all of them, it really doesn't matter as the techniques will apply to all. It is just a matter of size, so to speak. If you do wish to make four cards instead  of the journal, using the techniques then give me a ring and I can arrange it. The price will then be £25.00 for the day.
Below are some snippets of just some of the pages that I have done for the day using lots of different techniques......

As many of you may know by now, I have been designing stamps for the lovely Jenny Mayes over at Hobby Art and the next class after this one is on Sunday 9th September and is based on my stamp designs and the wonderful Clean Colour pens. The class is getting booked up very quickly for this one, so if you wish to come and join in the fun then you can book HERE . There are three choices of stamp sets to play with: Snowy Wishes, Gnomes or Floral Patchwork. Just remember when you book online to add your choice in the comments box and click store pickup in the postage stage.

Workshops must be booked and paid for in advance.
My mobile shop will be present during the workshops and is open to all, so if you're in the area feel free to drop in.
You can find all the new products in the What's New section. If you require anything in particular on the class day, please email me as I do not bring the entirety of the shop to the hall as there is too much stock!

I think that's all the news for now. I hope you have a great week and I'm looking to forward to seeing many of you at the workshops. 
Hugs, Lisa B xx
