October News from Gift Hutt

I don’t know where September has gone and we are almost half way through October already.  The Christmas decorations for sale are slowly appearing in the shop for you to get in early for handcrafted Christmas decorations.

At Labour Weekend the Hutt City Council is holding the HighLight – Carnival of Lights so we will be having a special display in the window to celebrate.  Beth has been working on the display and here is what she has done so far.  It is going to look amazing at night.

This month’s new release from Heartfelt Creations is the fun and retro looking Young at Heart Collection.  I really enjoyed using this set and it was so fun with all the trucks, cars and vintage planes.  This collection is perfect for masculine cards – although I did manage to squeeze in some flowers on the trucks.  But you can make cards for the women and children out of this collection.  I will be taking a cardmaking class using the Young at Heart collection later this month – details below.

Foamiran is now in store in a small range of colours at the moment with the idea of getting more in as people become more proficient using this.  Look out for me at the Wellington Paper Arts and Crafts show this weekend doing make and takes with the foamiran.

Gift Hutt will be at the Wellington Paper Arts and Craft Show on the 14th/15th October and I will be doing a flower making class there on Saturday 14th October.  There is only 2 spaces left for this class so be in quick to book your space.  Otherwise I will be having make and takes making flowers and be available for advice and information about paper crafting.  I am hoping the new collection will be available there.

I will also be at the Knox Church hall on Labour Day at the new Wrought Makers Market with some paper crafting supplies and I will also be doing small cards featuring the October release from Heartfelt Creations. Beth will also be at the market demonstrating how to do decoupage
