October retreats

Hi crafty friends
Having posted the pictures of the retreat project I have been asked about dates for the next ones.
So, I thought I would post them today.
There will be two retreats in October. The first is a five day retreat running from the 20th to the 24th of October although if you would prefer to come for just three days then that is also an option.
The second retreat is from the 27th to the 29th. They will both be held at Mytton Fold Hotel up here in Blackburn.
If you are interested please contact me on for further details.
They will both be Cricut retreats and the five day course will include two days of crafting with different products and projects.

Thought I would share.....

Hello my crafty friends. Happy Easter! I just thought I would take a couple of minutes out of yet another hectic day to share my recent projects with you all. 
Tomorrow I am running my second retreat and then on Friday I am off the South Wales for the weekend.
I am going to be teaching for two days at Dandi Crafts and these are what the ladies will be making.

The card above was made using a Woodware Stamp and Telegraph Road paper collection from Kaisercraft.

This is a plaque I was given to work with and I am really pleased with the way it turned out.

Finally for this one I used a Dreamweaver stencil and the Spectrum Noir pencils.

Hope you all have a fabulous week.
See you soon
Love and hugs
