In the last week I’ve been blessed with some wonderful experiences.
Firstly, our stand at the Paper Crafting Expo on the weekend went well. Adults and children alike loved out ‘make n take’ – so it was worth the effort to prepare all the Paper Pal people. Below is my fellow consultant Chris Lothian in action teaching the Paper Pals and some of the creations that some of the kids who participated made. We even had a group of sister decide to spend their pocket money on buying some of our Paper Pal packs so that they can make them at home later. So I think I’m onto a winner with my Paper Pal birthday party idea (see last weeks blog post for more details).
Meeting new people at events like this is something I love. Over the years I’ve meet some wonderful people that have started as customers and become friends or even part of my crafty family. It’s been amazing to craft with these people and help them preserve their precious memories and celebrate life events.
Secondly I got to indulge my passion for creativity and teaching in one go. As a Consultant we are offered a very unique training opportunities – these are all generally hands on and involve lots of creativity and fun projects. This month (yesterday in fact) it was my turn to lead one of these training day and share with with crafty mates some project ideas for next months featured paper pack “Feels Like Home“. This is a beautiful monotone paper pack that you can then add your own accent colour in to the mix.
So I wanted to give you all a sneak peak of this day and the projects that we created.
These cards are an adaption of the Workshop Your Way Love At First Sight Carmaking Kit. It uses the materials and some extra stamp sets and thin cuts. I’m now making these instructions available to you to purchase. You can either purchase the full WYW kit from my website or just the instructions below.
If you’re a local customer we will be making some of these in my card classes in April. Check out my events for further information.
Until next time
Note: Some of the links go through to my CTMH website and I do get a small commission from any purchases. I thank you in advance for this as it helps me to purchase more supplies with which to create and share projects with you.
