January meeting cancelled

Please note due to unforeseen circumstances this month's group at Hethersett is cancelled. So sorry to let you down but the cards from this month will be carried over to next month.

January 2018 cards

Happy 2018 to you all, I hope this year will be a happy and healthy one for you all.

As you can see old habits die hard with me and despite my best efforts I'm being " Last minute.com "
again.......sorry....

As per the email,  this month cards are all about lolly sticks and white acrylic paint ......I know a very odd combo but I quite enjoyed using them, but I will warn you it may get a bit messy. I think I had more paint on me rather than the cards but hey ho at least it washes off easily. The sticks and paint I got from The Range for £1 each and you will have enough to make loads of cards.

So here goes with the cards

Card 1 - Shabby chic

This card is totally out of my comfort zone and although I quite like it, I think in hind sight I wished I hadn't used distress ink for my focal image, as it ran slightly when the paint hit it. I am pleased at my 1st attempt at making tea roses.....they are super easy but a tad fiddly.



Card 2 - Over the garden fence

This card is really easy to make but I think it's a card that will be noticed and yes it does stand up nicely


Card 3 will be added here after my Saturday class but in my mind I have it looking like card 2 but more manly in shades of brown but we will see.....

Hi Ladies hope you are all keeping well and that your festive preparations are going to plan.

So as discussed at the last meeting we are going to make just 2 cards this month but one of them is an extra special one. So you will need to choose between version 1 or 2 of the first card. 

I have done kits for those of you who asked for them.

So here goes with this month's cards

Card 1 - version 1 - I have done this card with different coloured flowers and they looked lovely.


Version 2
Silver & red version


Gold version


Card 2 - Simple Stag

October 2017 cards

Hi everyone hope you are all keeping well. I have had a busy time since our last meeting mainly attending archery competitions with the family. I hope you don't mind me bragging their latest successes.

Here's Amy with the biggest cup to date, for winning Norfolk outdoor junior competition

Here's Amy and Daron with their fellow team mate Dan and their shield for winning best team for Norfolk.


Bragging over now to the real thing you want, here are this month's cards. I warn you I seem to be having a thing for blue and yellow at the moment.

Card 1 - Partial View  

Although I made this a girly card, you could do a masculine version and if I get time I will attempt to get  one done.



Card 2 -  It's all Blue and Yellow (sorry I couldn't think of a better name)


This card has lots of layers but I think it's worth it.

Card 3 - Very Blue Christmas 

This was a card I saw being demo'd at Thetford show recently and thought you would all like it too.
