Parties by Elin

I've been populating my Parties by Elin website today.  Why is it that you long on to create beautiful pages that you can 'see' in your head that the sight of a blank page makes everything you had thought of dissapear?!  Well I managed to put some more thoughts down and now it will have to wait for the photos until the end of the easter holidays.  Spreaking of which, why is it as soon as I arrive at the caravan it snows!!  It was 20 degrees, basking in the sun weather last week!
With it being the Easter Holidays there is little crafting happening, mainly due to me not having room in the car for all the craft paraphanalia.  That doesn't stop me creating my wishlists though!  Stampin' Up! has a fabulous offer this month -

Crafting Time!

Ok, after just reading an amazing inspirational blog I am taking some of the advice and actually setting dates for my classes and crops!

So, my plan (if anyone fancies joining me) is to host a Cardmaking Class on

  • Third Monday of the month 9.30am to noon(ish) although the first one will be Monday 23rd April (the 4th Monday in the month)
  • Third Wednesday of the month 7pm to 9.30(ish)  The first will be Wednesday 18th April.

Crop time (bring your own cardstock, embellishments, basic toolkit and glues and use my stamps and tools to work on your own cards or scrapbooks.  If you don't have these to start off with I will have some kits available for sale!)

  • First Monday of the month 9.30am to noon (ish).  The first will be Monday 7th May.
  • First Wednesday of the month 7pm to 9.30 (ish). The first will be Wednesday 2nd May.

The daytime ones may be subject to change depending upon work commitments but hopefully not.

The very first classes (Wed 18th and Mon 23rd) will be a free taster workshop where we all get to make a simple card introducing cardmaking and getting to know each other. A card something like this one - notice how I've left it blank until I find the perfect recipient then I can personalise it for any occasion!

If you are interested in any of these please contact me for more information (eg price, location) and to book your space.  Use the 'contact me' button to the right!
