I bring you great news!!!

Hi Ladies

When I first started going to Dabblers every so often we had a 'Stamping Sunday' which was held at Chellaston and organised by Tracey. But alas the room became no longer available and then we could not find an alternative venue and sadly the stamping on a Sunday was no more. It was great fun and I learn't loads & loads & loads from crafters like Pauline Tracey Sandra Jackie Jayne Karen just to name but a few - if I have missed your name out I'm very sorry.


We all used to gather at a community centre bring out own packed lunch and we crafted ALL day - yes ALL day - sheer bliss. Some could only came for the morning some for the afternoon and some lucky peeps came ALL day.


Well we have an opportunity to do this again on May 29th. Anne has found a new venue for 'STAMPING SUNDAY'
Cost:will be: £5 all day what a bargain!!!
The £5 will include tea & coffee for the day and a light breakfast of croissants first thing


Bring you own packed lunch and all the crafty items you will need for the day.
The theme will be 'Any thing goes'
If you would like to come - I will need to know definite numbers as we will need a minimum of 8 to make if viable.


So if you'd like to book a place please e-mail me asap L.roulstone@btopenworld.com

best wishes

Its time for our monthly get together at Ilkeston Dabblers.  I am really looking forward to a night of catch up
with everyone.  The theme for the evening is FATHERS DAY............ so in simple word masculine card.  Can hear a few moans and groans as I know we all struggle with cards for men!!!!    Not a lot of people  like to do masculine projects as they aren't pretty enough but, others enjoy making them.   Don't forget, you don't have to follow the
theme, you can bring along any projects to start/complete and that's for cardmaker's and scrapbooker's alike.

to swap for something else, just bring it along on the night.

THEME FOR THE EVENING
The theme for the evening is MASCULINE... oh I can hear the moans and groans already. Not a lot of people like to do masculine projects as they arent pretty enough but, others enjoy making them. Don't forget, you don't have to follow the theme, you can bring along any project to start/complete and that's for cardmaker's and scrapbooker's alike.

QUICK DEMONSTRATION
Last month (or was it the month before), I sent a sheet of paper around the tables to see if someone would like to demonstrate at one of our get togethers. Well can I find this list? I have searched high and low to no avail so for this month, I will show you how
to make a little pocket card (I don't know it's proper name). If you would like to have a go at this, here are the items that you will need

  • 1 sheet of A4 card to make the outside wallet and the inside pullout
  • I sheet of contrasting A4 card to do some matting and layering
  • 1 sheet of white A4 card to stamp on, for the outside of the wallet and the inside pullout
  • Stamps for the images/sentiments to decorate both the outside and inside.
  • A long length of ribbon
  • Scissors
  • Adhesive, colouring mediums, ink for stamping
  • Something to score the card
  • I shall take along the stamp sets I have used to make the card in the attachment, which I shall be very happy to let you borrow.

If you would like to do a quick demo next month, or any other time this year, please let me know on the night.

CAKERERS
Alison Moore and Paula are the cakerers for the evening.

SALE AND SWAP ITEMS
