Forgotten camera

Not to worry, here is one of the many Belt Cards made at a great eveing of crafting

I shall try my best to remember my camera for the rest of the year so we can have lots of photos of our lovely crafters

Last Night

There was a great turn out for the Spondon Dabblers last night sadly I forgot my camera so cannot post any pictures of cards that crafters made. I'm really annoyed with myself as there were some great cards made. There was lots of chatter and I met several new crafters which was lovely.

Tracey popped in briefly about 8pm - but due to her wedding next week and being very busy she was unable to join us for the evening.

I am really pleased that crafters are able to attend as it's such a nice venue and because it is well subscribed we have been able to reduce the price to £3:00 which is a bargain for a night of crafting. Despite Tracey giving me instructions of how to put information in the side bar - I still can't manage it - sorry.

I did demo the buckle card sadly I have no picture of those made :( but those that joined in appeared to enjoy making them. I will make sure I remember to take my camera next time.

Well until we all met again

Spondon Dabblers

Date and Times
Friday 15th July 6.30 - 9.30 we shall be meeting up again for our 2nd Spondon Dabblers get together.  The cost of the evening
will be £3.50 per person.

Theme for the night
The theme for this month is floral.
As usual, you don't have to follow the theme, you can bring along your own project to start or finish.  Don't forget, if you just want an evening without crafting, that is fine too as there are so many people to sit and chat with that I am sure you will still have an interesting night.

Show and Tell
Please bring along any cards or scrapbook pages or anything else that you may have done recently as everyone loves to look at what has been created but, be warned, you may need to tell everyone how you made it.

For Sale or For Swap
If you have any crafting items that you wish to sell or swap for something else, you are most welcome to bring them along to see if anyone on the night may way to purchase/swap with you.


I am hoping that Anne will demonstrate  distressing techniques  - so if you want to have a go please bring some ink, daubers, files card stock etc to have a 'play' etc.

'Belt Card'
please bring along the following:
A4 card stock (cut in half one half to make the card the other may be required for matting and layering)
DSP that co odrinates with the card stock
small piece of white card stock
ribbon that co ordinates with card stock
paper trimmer
corner rounder punch
word window punch (SU if you have one)
scallop oval & oval punch
piece of card stock for the insert
something to decorate front of card eg a stamp of topper of your choice


Badges, drinks and mugs
There may be one or two new people joining us again so it would help if we can all try to remember to wear a badge with our name
on and don't forget, if you want to bring your own mug for your drinks you can.
If you have any queries about the night please let me know

It would really be appreciated if you can let me know if you will be coming along to this get together so that we know how many
we are catering for. 

Looking forward to hearing from you

Little Owl


This was my effort at making the owl under the instruction of Tracey.

It was great meeting up with crafters I’d not seen for ages and ages.  I had a great night sitting next to Alison


See you all on the 15th July at Spondon Village Hall

Thank You Maggie

A fellow cafter, Maggie, had a major sort out of all her crafting items and I mean major. She kindly donated all these items to all the members of Derby Dabblers. As a thank you, this card was made and we all purchased a massive bouquet of flowers, to say thank you.

I took these round to Maggie who was so surprised and she has asked me to pass on her thanks to everyone.

Its so lovely being part of such a wonderful group
