A great workshop

Hi everyone.

Yesterday I attended a great workshop that was hosted by Clearly Besotted Stamps owner Stephanie - with 2 of her ladies who help her & her husband who not only looked after the stock, but came around the room offering to make tea & coffee for us.  What a star!

Stephanie & her team had prepared packs of things for us, which must have taken them ages, & here are the things we made;



An Easter card


An Easter Gift box, complete with small Easter eggs nestling in paper straw


Four greeting cards complete with acetate lid box

card one


card two


card three


card four


All neatly stored in their box with pretty bow.
There was a tag to go with this - but I am not using it.

All the designs really clean & simple & a joy to make.  Clearly Besotted have stamps that have matching dies & I had bought some at the October stamp festival, but couldn't get the die cutting done quite right.  But they have a neat "trick" & it works perfectly (well almost, at the moment) every time.

This "trick" is now going to help me with the Christmas Stamps & Dies that I had trouble with back in December - so next Christmas my cards will definitely have stamped & die cut embellishments.

Oh yes - by the way - the Goulash was excellent!

Bye for now.
