Listened to the Teleconference last evening and decided to make another effort to book some workshops. Then an email from Zoe confirmed that the team is going to ring round together. What a great idea!
I don't know what has happened to my blog but I can't get rid of the spaces however hard I try. Can anyone out there help as I can't see anyone wanting to look at it at the moment...except maybe my loyal "team".
We are having a whole day workshop on 2nd July at Middle Rasen and there are 3 places left. Anyone out there up for it? I can assure you that we are so much better at papercrafting than blogging. Get in touch if you would like to come along, or if you know how to sort out miscreant blogs!!!
At Zoe's team meeting we met Majella, a lovely lady who came all the way from Scotland for the meeting and shared some of her inspirational cards with us. Thank you, Majella. Hope you don't mind me slipping one in here.
Looking forward to The Bentley Taster on the 6th July. See you there!!
Happy crafting. Mandy

Good afternoon all,
There has never been a better time to have a Stampin'Up party. You can earn £20 extra to spend on top of the usual rewards in June and July . Have a look on the web site and get the details or contact me and find out how you can have, not only a hostess gift, but £45 to spend in the catalogue, too. Don't wait, BOOK A PARTY NOW!We had a great day at Nettleton on Saturday. Look what we all achieved ...5 projects using the In Colours and the Big Shot. These are Ritas. I especially like the note book.

And Dawn decided the folded card would make a good wall hanging complete with photos, of course.

We had a couple of ladies who were new to crafting and they seemed to enjoy all the cutting and sticking. Jess completed a lovely "owl" card never having used the Big Shot before.

One last picture of the ladies working hard!!

There was 100% positive feed back so we will be having another workshop one evening in July. Watch this space for further details or email me for a copy of our monthly newsletter.
Thanks to everyone for helping to make it a super day of crafting.
Why not join us for the next day at Middle Rasen Church Hall on 2nd July? Contact me for further details.
And don't forget the taster day at The Bentley on the 6th July Details from Zoe on 07717855179 See you there!

Good Morning all,
This time last week we were at the 'Sincerly Yours' papercraft show in Lincoln, and experiencing a huge interest in our Stampin' Up stand. Over 1000 people attended the show and certainly a fair proportion came to our 'make-and-take' table and came to watch demonstrations with the Big Shot. A happy shot of Emma, Zoe, Bridgett and I before the rush!!
We had a lovely display of 3D items and cards, see the pictures below.

On Saturday, Ginny and I are running an all-day workshop in Nettleton, and we will be welcoming some new crafting friends. We are really looking forward to it, and hope to make a small folding picture frame, a notebook, a pretty gift (see below) and two cards. If you would like to join us on what promises to be an enjoyable day, please get in touch to book a place! (Only 2 left!).
Have a great week, happy crafting!
