Taster workshop

This morning I had the opportunity to run a taster session in my kids' school - for the nursery & P1 parents - to let them try making cards.

The 4 ladies who came enjoyed themselves and were pleased with the way their cards turned out. Only one of them had made cards from scratch before. I let them choose if they wanted to make a birthday card, or a christmas card, based on these two designs:

They chose different colour card and paints, for the birthday card, and different christmas stamps for the central image of the christmas card, so all the cards looked quite different by the end. I didn't take any pictures there.
Tha backgrounds are stamped with Perfect Medium, to give a watermark effect, and the embossed images were painted with cosmic shimmer watercolours.

Tomorrow evening I am doing a PartiCraft party, so I'm looking forward to that...not sure what I'm going to demo yet though!

Great news - FREE POSTAGE

PartiCraft have announced that you can now have free postage on all your online orders! Isn't that fantastic?

If you do order online, don't forget to choose me from the list of demonstrators, to show how you found PartiCraft. I can still order things for you if you prefer not to order online, and of course I can demonstrate how to use the products if you need a bit of inspiration. There are quite a lot of new products in the catalogue, so do go and have a look online, or if you'd like a paper copy of the new supplement, just ask!

It's been school holidays here and I've been away, so no crafting going on unfortunately. However I did finish this cross-stitch for my nephew, its a birth sampler, although he's 3 now! Hope he likes it.
Bye for now,
