Craft Group Christmas Preparations

In the crafting world we’re already getting ready for Christmas. The TV Craft channels are advertising Christmas products and the paper suppliers are selling their Christmas paper ranges so at our meeting on Monday 15th August we will be starting on our first batch of Christmas cards.
You will need to bring a selection of Christmas papers with small patterns and some plain – you will not need large pieces so can use up your scraps for these cards. You will also need square card blanks, white and coordinating coloured card for matting and layering, bakers twine or embroidery thread in colours which coordinate with your papers, and ribbon and bling to embellish.
In addition to your basic crafting kit you will need a pencil and something with which to draw a circle, the inside of a roll of double sided tape is ideal, and also stamps with Christmas greetings (and ink) or peel offs if you prefer and foam pads.
Finally please bring along all the star punches you have as we will be using a selection of different sized stars to make our cards.

Craft Group April Plans

Do you remember all those crafty purchases you made because you saw some fabulous demonstrations at a show or on the telly, then when you got home you couldn’t remember what to do with them?
And what about the things you bought and used once then put them in the cupboard and forgot about them ? Or the paper collection you didn’t want to use because it was so pretty but now it’s out of fashion!
Well bring them all along to the April Craft Group meeting together with any equipment, card, paper or inks you might need and we’ll put our heads together to solve your problems and find new uses for those purchases.
