What happened in April?

It has been a while since I have written on my blog, so I have a few things to tell you, so make a cup of tea or coffee first and then lets start.

Firstly the clubs having been going well and have enjoyed the company of new crafters joining in the fun and giving fresh ideas and inspiration for everyone.  It is really nice to have them come along and I hope we will see more of them on a regular basis.

The laugh & craft club is always full of laughter and some times a bit of crafting inbetween the flowing conversation.  It is always enjoyable to be with the ladies on the first Friday night of every month.  A good start to the weekend!

The rubber stamping club is a full 3 hours of crafting and involves something different every month. 

In April we used the window and window box stamp by Flower Soft to complete the project below. Pro-markers were used to colour in the image and flower soft was used for the flowers and wisteria.

Very proud Sheila showing her finished card.  Shelia has changed some of the colours giving the card a slightly different look.
At pro-marker club in April we used the Flippin' range of stamps, 'We love to shop' to make a swival card using their pre cut aperture cards.  These stamps are ideal for this as you have the front of the back of the image.  The pictures below show the finished examples and the ladies enjoying themselves and filling the shop with concentration.

Christmas card club held on a Wednesday and a Saturday has been enjoyed using the time to complete up to four cards towards Christmas.  Samples are made and ideas are given so all can be  completed.  Each month different cards are shown using rubber stamps, peel-offs, toppers etc.

Parchment club is always popular and I am always amazed at the work they produce.  Maureen takes the workshop twice a month and comes up with different project all the time.  Below is Tanya who even though she will not admit it is very good and produces some lovely work.  Recently she has learnt the technique with the pinta paints.

 Beginners are always welcome.  Below Maureen is going though the basic techniques and giving advice.

Well that is just some of the activities that were carried out in the shop during April.  Keep checking for the samples made during May.  Bye for now! Jeanette :)
