Today's Workshop

What a fabulous day we've had creating a unique piece of home decor....a notice board and heart plaque.

The Home word and large hearts were sourced from Rob the MDF Man. And anyone that knows their stamps will recognise IndigoBlu and Tim Holtz in the mix!  We used acrylic paints, embossing paste, crackle paint and gilding waxes and stamped and stencilled with distress stains. I came up with the concept and suggested layouts, but everyone came up with a different look!

See a few of the results...

Classes this year

Well as you can see over there on the right all the 2014 class dates are booked in now with the venue. And we have secured the lovely Clare Rowlands for several more Molly Blooms workshops throughout the year!

We all had a thoroughly enjoyable day on the 18th January making a cute little basket, embellished with Molly Blooms Stamps, under the expert guidance of Clare Rowlands!

Some of us joined a sewing "crop" in January and we got given homework! Can you believe it!! I've just about finished mine off. No detention for me! And its going to be interesting to see what the others come up with.... no pattern... three small pieces of cloth and a length of ribbon! I'll see if I can get some photos.

There's some great offers at Stampin' Up! right now with the start of Sale-a-brations. Head over to my SU web site to check out the offers. Spend £45 and get a freebie!

My class on the 15th February will be a messy one, with inks and paste and shimmer sprays. Hopefully I'll get a sample picture up soon. The project will incorporate some techniques I learnt from a Hels Sheridan workshop in Daventry the other weekend.

If you want to book on any of my classes or book a private workshop give me a call or email me! Love to see you.
