Hello all! Hope you've had a creative and sunshine filled weekend. Saturday was my monthly card class here in Newport on the Isle of Wight. We had a lovely class full of chat and cheeriness and creativity.
If you'd like to find out more about my upcoming classes check out my sidebar or the class tab at the top.
My upcoming classes will be held at my home in Newport on:
- Saturday July 19th 1-4pm
- Saturday August 23rd 1-4pm
Classes cost £8.00 for 3 cards and a 3D item (gift box or gift bag)
I also have two special events coming up in August. My annual Christmas Crafting Days will be held on:
- Friday August 8th 10am-4pm
- Saturday August 16th 10am-4pm
This is a special event I hold every year to get you in the festive spirit ready for the festive crafting season (which we all know starts in the summer!). We make a wide range of projects. In previous years we have made a Christmas planner, stamped tealights and a matching votive holder, a papercrafted Christmas tree for a table centrepiece, a mini album and a huge variety of cards and gift bags. The day costs £20 which includes the kits to make all projects. I ask all attendees to bring along their own selection of glue and a packed lunch too.

Today's crafty make was a box we made at the class on Saturday. I found this tutorial online for creating the basic design of the box which uses the FAB Scallop Tag Topper Punch as a closure for the gift box.
Once the basic box was cut and scored from Daffodil Delight cardstock we decorated with the soon to retire 2012-2014 In Color Cardstock (Midnight Muse and Gumball Green) layered with the Watercolor Wonder Designer Series Paper. I love this paper and will be so sad to see it retire (but equally as excited about all the new lovely paper collections to arrive in the new catalogue).
To finish we created these little floral features using a fab sneak peek product from the new annual catalogue, the Itty Bitty Punch Accents punch pack. We embellished with Brights Candy Dots.
Check out all the products that are retiring by clicking the image below. All the retiring products are only available for another week. June 30th is your last opportunity to purchase these before the arrival of the new catalogue on July 1st.
