May 2012

On Saturday I went with Zoe and two other team members to Leamington for a day of 'training',  meeting fellow demonstrators and getting lots of tips and ideas to carry us through the next few months.  In fact, enough ideas to keep me going for a long time!!  Such a good theme too, My Way, it meant there was something for everyone.   Many thanks to Zoe, Peg, Sandra and Rachel for setting up the really useful "Share Fair". The hard work was certainly worth it.
And a special thank you to Jenny McCormack for her interesting talk on Workshops, a timely reminder of some things we never do and others we have forgotten about.
It was a really interesting and useful day.  Many thanks, Zoe, for  driving us there safely and for the scenic tour of the roundabout!

We made some great cards in April at our classes using, amongst other products, the lovely Everything Eleanor stamp set and the Lace Ribbon Border punch.
I have really come to appreciate the new In-Colours after initially being a bit doubtful about them.  They co-ordinate so well together.

Ginny made these cards with her group last Monday using the Greenhouse Garden stamp set and the Daisies die.  She has become a 'dab hand' at using the Stamp-a-ma-jig, too.

Have you thought about buying the wonderful Simply Scored tool?  I have been wanting such a board for ages and now it is here.  After watching Peg Coombes make boxes with the diagonal plate I can't wait to get started.
Loved this 'wreath' on Zoe's table made using the Simply Scored tool and some lovely DSP.
This stunning 'wallet' on Peg's table was made using the Twitterpated DSP.

At last week's class we had a go at making Darlene Poltinski's pansies and this is Rita's card.  

And here is Robbie's card.  They turned out rather well.

  1. Wow what a great post Mandy. Thanks for your birthday wishes and for your kind remarks about the share fair. I really enjoyed spending the day with you, Sammy, Laura and Dawn and Nicola.
    These projects from your classes are all lovely but my favourite is the pansy card. Zx
