Still quilling

In amongst my stamping exploits I have been quite busy quilling as well which has been nice.

You may remember after I demo-ed the Royal Flower at the AGM last year I made a few cards using it and they have been so successful that I'm still going!

This card was made for an Anniversary request at work and I'm pleased to say they were delighted with it:

Sorry the light is a little peaky!

I have another under construction in between planning the next workshops, some plotting for the next AGM and our Somerset workshop in Woolavington on Sunday 3rd April - contact me if you would like any details.

Quilling Workshops

Thank you to the lovely ladies who have been to one or all of my recent quilling classes at Yandles Hobby Shop.  Extra thanks to Val who bought in a lovely selection of quilled flowers for the Guinness world record attempt for most quilled flowers in one place, much appreciated.  

Do pop over to see Val's recent quilling and craft exploits on her blog, her recent bunnies and alpaca are super: http://www.aquarius-aquariusblog.blogspot.co.uk

I'm afraid workshops, samples and commissions have depleted my blogging a little.

This is a taster of some of the butterflies that were options for the last workshop which I shall be repeating (and adding to for the ladies that wish to come again):

Dates for the next workshops at Yandles Hobby Shop, Martock, Somerset TA12 6JU are:

Saturday 21st May - Beginners Quilling

Saturday 30th July - Quilled  Flowers

All workshops cost £15 and include a cuppa and fresh scone.
Book your place by calling the hobby shop on 01935 822571.

I must share some pics of the workshops next time.

Too busy crafting!

Many apologies for going missing for so long.  Ironically it is crafting that has kept me too busy and doing a bit more work for Jillstampsup.

I have even done some quilling which I will catch up with reporting on.

To start with this is a Mothers Day card which I made a few of for sale at work.
It uses the Woodware stamp - Bubble Blooms Clarissa.

The picture was taken at night so the light reflects off the candi a little!

I love these stamps and I've filled the spots with a mixure of card candi from my large stash and some stickles and liquid pearls.
The leaves are coloured with copics.

Sentiment from SU and punched out with matching punches.

I've been busy prepping today for my Quilled Butterflies workshop next week at Yandles - it is fully booked but we are just sorting out some new dates for the future.
