Spondon Dabblers this Friday

Date and Times
Friday 19th August 6.30 - 9.30pm we shall be meeting up again for our 2nd Spondon Dabblers get together. 

Whilst most thing are rising we are pleased to announce that the cost of the evening has been reduced from £3.50 to £3.00 per person such a bargain for a night of crafting.

Theme for the night
The theme for this month is Christmas in August
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.

Christina very kindly gave me the galleon picture to use in the card – thank you Christina it made the card!!

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.

Demonstration

We have nothing planned for this month - but if there is a technique you like demonstrated please let either Anne or I know and we will try to incorporate it in one of the evenings.  If there is something you'd like to demo or show other crafter's to make lets us know.

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

Three of a Kind

 

Well Friday at Dabblers was a great night.  I made 3 cards and had a wonderful time using a brayer for the very 1st time.  I never done it before but I’m certainly going to buy myself a brayer & do more & since Friday I keep taking a peek at U tube looking a brayer demo’s – think I must be hooked!!!!

   I was very lucky as Tracey lent me hers for the evening.  Brenda gave us a demo using a brayer and Liz was really positive when I thought what I’d done was rubbish – she showed me that is wasn’t.  So thank you Liz for being so positive.

I haven’t made the brayer card into cards yet but we will do soon and then post them on the blog.  But in the interim here are the cards I made on the night.

Well hope you have all had a great weekend.  I’m off to ice a birthday cake for Cameron’s party today.  This is my 3rd of the week

Derby Dabblers Friday August 5th

Good evening,
I am sorry this is a bit late but as you can imagine, life is rather hectic at the moment.....peace will soon be restored in the Anthony household as Christiana returns to Cyprus on Friday and Paul will be working away as from Saturday.
Date and Times

Friday 5th August 6.30 - 9.30 we shall be meeting up again for our August Derby Dabblers get together.  The cost of the evening
will be £3.00 per person (teenagers £2.00). I have been told that the Zumba class have been asked to vacate the room by 6.30 but who knows if this will happen or not.  If it doesnt, we can all join in lol...maybe have coffee in the kitchen first
Theme for the night
The theme for this month is red, to suite the weather we are having.   As usual, you dont have to follow the theme, you can bring along your own project to start or finish.  Dont 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.
Cakerers
Denise has offered to be the cakerer for the evening but is there someone else who would also bring in something?  Please let me know if you can. Unfortunately I shall be going to the airport to take my daughter to catch her flight so I wont have time to bake.

Demonstration

Brenda has offered to give us a demo this month using the brayer, ink and some shadow stamps.
If you would like to join in please bring with you
Some matt card
Brayer
ink
spritzer - if you dont have one then there should be one you can borrow
Unsure about any of the above items, just let me know
October Cake Decorating Class
It will be a normal crafting class in October as the majority of votes were negative.  However, for those that would like to attend one
of these classes , I can bring the details along.
Stampin' Up! card making classes
If you would like to attend one of the card making classes that I run, £6.00 for at least 2 cards, refreshments, cake, project sheets etc.
there is one space available on Tuesday 9th August and 2 spaces on Thursday 11th. Just drop me an email to let me know if you are interested.
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 dont forget, if you want to bring your own mug for your drinks you can, I know that there is a limited supply in the cupboard.
If the guardians of the teenages can let me know what the youngsters would like to drink, I can make sure that we have something
available.
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.  Anyone who can get there just prior to 6.30 to help set up the tables will be a great help, if we can get into the room
Looking forward to hearing from you
Tracey
