Hello, Lisa B here, happy April! I hope you've been able to enjoy the gorgeous sunshine over the last few days. I've been spending most of my time in the craft cabin, working on samples for various Imagination Crafts' programmes on Hochanda, samples and projects for my classes in Maidstone this coming Friday and last week I made samples for Hobby Art's Hochanda programmes - it's all go!
I'm doing three programmes for Imagination on Easter Saturday, April 15. The times are 7am, 2pm and 6pm - I'd better make sure I get an early night the night before! There'll be new products to buy and I will be doing my best to fit in as many demos as possible, so I hope you'll be able to tune in at some point.
If you follow the Lisa B Designs' Facebook page you'll know that I have started stocking PaperArtsy products. This is something I've wanted for a long time, so I'm absolutely delighted. I've started with a selection of stamps, stencils and the gorgeous Infusions pigment powders, you can see everything HERE.
Another piece of good news is that I have found a hall in Maidstone where I can hold regular workshops at weekends and the first one will be a PaperArtsy workshop on Sunday, May 28 in Grove Green Community Hall, ME14 5BT. More information can be found HERE. Here's a sneak peek of one of the workshop projects...................
I have added so many new products to the website recently that it would be impossible to list them all here, so please visit the What's New section to see everything. I will be adding a few more items between now and Friday, including the May edition of Craft Stamper magazine, which is now is stock............
And so to Friday's classes. We'll be working with PaperArtsy Infusions to create different effects on backgrounds and focal images. Here are a couple of sneak peeks of some of the class projects......
If you have any of the following and would like to bring them with you on Friday it would be a great help......
Colouring mediums, eg; Distress inks, Starlights, colouring pencils/pens
Onyx Black Versafine ink pad/Black ink pad
(Feel free to bring other stamp sets if you'd rather use them)
***Please ensure your items are clearly labelled with your name***
There have been a couple of cancellations due to illness, so if you would like to attend one of the classes, please contact me by lunchtime on Thursday April 6.
Class times are 2.30 to 5.30pm and 6.30 to 9.30pm. The class fee is £16. This includes your projects, a papercrafting tool kit to use during the class and tea/coffee and a slice of cake.
You are welcome to order items from the website and pay for them at the classes. Pre-orders by lunchtime on Thursday would be much appreciated. This gives me time to pick everything before it goes into the van.
I'm looking forward to seeing everyone on Friday. If you can't make the classes, look out for project photos on my Instagram and Facebook pages and on the blog in the coming weeks. And if you're going to the Crafting at Ally Pally show on Saturday, April 8, I might see you there. Sue will be demoing on the BJ Crafts' stand, so I'm going to the show to cheer her on.
Have a great week, i'll be back next Wednesday with the first of my April projects.
Hugs, Lisa B x
