Next week, on Wednesday evening 22nd May, we shall be resuming our card making workshops in the Papermaze shop. These will run from 7.30pm til approx. 9.30pm and you will have the opportunity to create three different cards. You will be supplied with a kit, so if you don't finish them all in this time, you can take all the materials and instructions home with you.
We welcome complete beginners as well as advanced crafters, and we have all the tools needed to complete the cards.
You will only be required to bring along your basic tools such as pencil, ruler, scissors and glues.
Refreshments are available, and you will have a chance to browse the shop while you are there too :-)
Hi Tracee with you today
There are lots of new and exciting things to play with in the shop (see this post)
I got to work with one of the new Echo Park collections "A Perfect Summer"
which is a really bright and happy range and really is perfect for those summer layouts
I chose a sketch from Page Drafts which used 3 pictures and I used 2 small and 1 larger pic
and this is my version
with the papers this month, I got Orange twine, (there are so many yummy colours to choose from in the shop) that I curled into a
heart shaped frame for the main picture and looped the remainder to the
right where i added some of the alpha stickers from the 12 x 12 alpha
Some chipboard stars that I painted with a thin coat of Gesso
The little tabs (orange and blue) are from the Smash range and ideal for tucking in here and there.
I also added from my stash some journaling circles by Jenni Bowlin
If you would like to share any projects using this line or the sketch please feel free to share your link in the comments box
Just lately in the Papermaze shop, we have had new products flooding in, and it s not easy to always keep up with the latest products available to buy. So here is a quick selection of some of the very latest products we have for you to buy...
Oh My Goodness! Have you seen the new lines in store from Simple Stories? At Papermaze we have four new releases for sale, my favourite being the 'Vintage Bliss' Line.
This girly, bright, stylish collection is perfect for this beautiful spring/summer weather we are having, so I have teamed it up with a photo of my little lady wearing her sunglasses and relaxing on the grass!
There are so many elements in these papers that can be fussy cut out, and they are perfect for layering up.
On Wednesday 8th May from 10am we shall be holding our monthly Scrapbooking workshop at our shop here in Otley.
Crafters of all abilities are welcome, refreshments are provided and anyone attending the workshop also benefits from a 10% discount in the shop on the day too!
Here is a sneak of the layout we shall be doing, using a new Crate Paper line...
We shall be concentrating on building up layers and clustering elements. These are two techniques which many of us find look lovely, but at the same time daunting to try, so I shall be showing you how easy it can be using a few simple rules.
All you will need to bring is a 6x4" photo and your basic crafting tools such as scissors and adhesives. Classes usually run for around 2hours, but if you are a slow scrapper, I stay until you have finished, or you can take your materials and instructions home with you to finish.
The class kit includes everything besides the photo and title stickers you will need to make the layout, instructions and all tools, inks, paints etc are available to share.
For booking enquiries, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
We hope to see some new faces coming along soon :-)
