Everyone Had A Wonderful Time

Good afternoon crafters,

Saturday was THE day for the Molly Blooms Advent Calendar workshop, it was fully booked and quite an intense day with 24 mini tags to make, all packed full of detail that only Clare can do.

Everyone concentrated hard

The ladies all thoroughly enjoyed it, most of them bought A4 Magnetic Sheets, Frantage Deep Impressions White Embossing Powder (for a wonderful snow effect), Molly Blooms stamps and as any true crafter they HAD to increase their stocks of Copic Pens.

Have You Time for a Catch Up?

Standard

Good morning crafters,
Sorry I have been a bit lax keeping you up to date so here goes………..
The results of my demonstration dilemma, I used alcohol inks and Frantage embossing powders, tinsel and flakes on both the heart and the paper beads and made them into two separate necklaces.

We have had a busy start to the week in the shop. Today we have Linda’s Brayering workshop which is so popular that in just a few months we have started running two workshops, one in the morning and another in the afternoon. See you soon Linda, the kettle will be on.
What day is it tomorrow? Oh NO – It’s Topsy Turvey Thursday again, it comes round soooo fast.
WILL we survive yet another Topsy Turvey Thursday?

Demonstration Dilemma Resolved?

Standard

Good morning crafters,
Yes, we had an eventful day in the shop yesterday with Janet “helping” to get the shop floor organised. Despite her efforts we have completed the major moves and it is just a case of titivating, which we can hopefully do today, bearing in mind it is Topsy Turvey Thursday and I know that there is at least one delivery to get out. So, that’s the first hour taken care of!
Call in and see what we have done, I particularly like the Scrapbook. Cake Decorating and Ribbon sections

It looks like my Demonstration Dilemma will finally be resolved on Saturday! I am hoping to play with paper beads and Frantage and perhaps the Melting Pot. I can’t wait, I hope that you can call in and see what I produce.

The count down to my big adventure has started, six big sleeps and I will be on my way (only three working days). That’s a blessing as I have only packed one thing so far, no panic!
Don’t worry, I am hoping to blog whilst I am away, especially if I find any craft shops or ideas.
Each day I will give you a clue to guess where I am going. Todays clue is:- my passport is already packed.
WILL my demonstration Dilemma finally be resolved?
WHO will win the Blog Candy for Where’s Gilly and the email link.
WILL I be packed in time for my big adventure?
WHERE am I going for my big adventure?

Demonstration Dilemma!

Standard

Good Morning Crafters,
I am in an enviable dilemma, every Saturday Liz and I take it in turns to do demonstrations at Craftrange.
We have the freedom to pick what we would like to demonstrate and it is my turn today.
Here is my dilemma, I had originally thought of die cutting shapes out of thick card,I would use the ebosser machine, it is lovely to use and ours is at a very competitive price at the moment. Next I could decorate them with embossing powders, (I may have to use the gorgeous Frantage kits again!) and then coating them with something to seal and make them glossy (I was thinking of using Glossy Accents). Mmmmm endless possibilities I would enjoy that.
BUT
I went into the warehouse of Michael Toms Stationers (our parent company) to find some paper balls for a customer, I have known about them for years but only today did I notice that they had holes through them. They aren’t balls they are BEADS! So, I am thinking, whatever you can do on a flat piece of paper you can do on a paper bead. The lovely colours of Alcohol Inks to give colour and embossing powders for texture.
Oh the possibilities are endless but the working day too short to do both, bearing in mind we also have a full day Molly Blooms Workshop and an 80% off sale, I have to decide What I am going to do?
What would YOU do?
Will I have time to do both?
Call in to see what I have decided.
Don’t miss the next thrilling instalment of DEMONSTRATION DILEMMA!
