I don't know where the time went but It's 5 weeks since the last class and I'm still nowhere near organised! As Promised, the first class of the year will be an easy one, a nice gentle stroll in the park to get you back in practice. The class is titled Simply Elegant and it is exactly what it said say on the packet. 4 cards, easy to make and with a simple streamline elegant look. The 2 cards featuring the trio of ladies and the elegant model are taken from vintage French fashion plates of the twenties. I have designed the samples in their simplest form but there is lots of scope to add a twist of your own if you're feeling adventurous. The card with the simple ribbon weaving comes with a choice of toppers, larger, smaller, men's and women's. This is a good technique to use if you want a very understated card for example a sympathy card, or if you want to do away with an image and just have wording, it's a good technique to have in your repertoire. Th last card is a very simple tag card, a quick and easy format if you need a card in a hurry. This one has been made using Die cut printed tags but you could easily make your own to co-ordinate with you backing paper.
As it's the first class, I feel a sale coming on, I'll bring a selection of my regular priced stock and give a discount of 25% on everything as well as some items with 40% off.

My first 5 projects using Acid Drops & Whatnot stamps has just been published in issue 8 of Creative Stamping Magazine and it's in the shops now.
It will be great getting back in harness and away from the dreaded computer and meeting up with you all again. The class is as usual at The Old Fire Station, Hockley in Essex, it starts at 7pm and goes on 'til 9.30pm. The cost is unchanged at £10 an includes all the products needed to complete the class, use of our tools, full colour printed instructions and of course tea/coffer and biscuits. If I don't already have your name or fancy giving us a try or haven't been for a while but fancy a crafty night out, just drop me an email and I'll add you to the list.
Look forward to seeing you all soon
