One of a Kind - Make and Take

Just thought I would show you a Make and Take that we did at a recent workshop - using the One of a Kind stamp set - the lovely new Soft Suede cardstock, inkpad and polka-dot ribbon - together with Bashful Blue and Very Vanilla - the variation was using Pretty in Pink - we all made the blue colourway - but each design was a little different so it was easy to mix and match the ideas.

The ribbon is so gorgeous, super quality and loads of it on a spool - so perfect for sharing with another crafty friend - also very versatile as it can be used either plain or with polka-dots!!

Back later in the week to show you the lovely little notepad that we covered - thanks for stopping by - Bridgette

June's Tuesday Craft Workshop

Just an update on our monthly Tuesday Craft Meeting at Bromley Hall - I'll be adding the dates of our next meetings into the sidebar so if you would like to join us please contact me.

Firstly it was so lovely to be back - so sorry for those that were unable to join us at the last moment, we missed you !!  fingers crossed for next time.

Secondly, where did the time go?  We were working hard and completed the two projects seen in the photo, and we had our Technique Corner - the Stay Put Bow courtesy of Michelle Single - but ran out of time for the third project.  The credit for the super design for both the star card and cute box goes to my upline Monica Gale - a project she put together for her Stamp With Us forum - so thank you so much Monica, it was a hit and enjoyed by all !!

I forgot to mention that a detailed template was initially made by everyone on Whisper White cardstock giving measurements etc before we started cutting into our Chocolate Chip cardstock for our project - so we had a dummy run and ironed out any possible hiccups and also it gave us a wonderfully detailed template to refer back to when we might need a perfect little box to use to present a gift to someone special
The gorgeous papers are from the mini catalogue Autumn Meadows - get them while you can as they won't make it across to the new catalogue as they contain Really Rust and Taken with Teal, two retiring colourways, but they are perfect for masculine cards and 3D projects.

Next meeting will be Tuesday 13 July 2010 - just before the children break for summer - just time to grab a little 'me' time, what do you think?

Back soon - Bridgette
