Goodness we are now in September – where has the time gone? Have you started thinking about Christmas yet? We have some lovely gift ideas and if you can’t decide we do have gift vouchers available as well. Here is a great start – these gorgeous mosaics from Now Crafts make fabulous gifts for the special person in your life.
I will be getting my order in for some foamiran from Ireland – this is the latest trend in papercrafting and the flowers end up being so realistic looking. As soon as I have stock available I will be running a class on how to make foamiran flowers. Watch this space…
This month’s new release from Heartfelt Creations is the Beary Fun Retreat Collection. The colours are just gorgeous and I really enjoyed using the autumn shades in this collection, although it was strange doing autumn projects in winter. The designs are fabulous for making masculine cards and/or children’s cards as well as feminine cards.
Gift Hutt will be at the Wellington Paper Arts and Craft Show on the 14th/15th October and I will be hoping to do some flower making classes there. Otherwise I will be having make’n’takes making flowers and be available for advice and information about paper crafting. I am hoping to have more information available for my next newsletter.
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. Catherine is also looking for more stall holders and if you are interested you can visit the website on the link above.
We have some fun classes coming up with a range of different crafts available. First up is a Flower Making workshop which is a lot of fun and very popular. Beth is running a Decoupage class on the 16th and this looks to be a lot of fun. I will be hosting a Beary Fun Retreat New Release Party on the 24th where you will be learning new techniques.
