Dont the first Fridays of the month come round quickly. Its hard to believe that its nearly October.

We are meeting up again on 7th October at St. Martin's Church Hall, Flint St, Derby. The theme for the evening will be halloween so that means bats, witches, brooms and everything else associated with it for both card makers and scrapbookers. As usual, you dont have to follow the theme, just bring your current projects along to finish or maybe start something that you have been holding back on for a while.

There will be a demonstration on how to make a bag in a box. The demonstration will start at 7.15p.m. To make the bag in a box (something I have wanted to have a go at for ages), you will need the following items:

Cardstock for the base 4 1/2" x 4 1/2"
A scorer (scorepal or hugie) or a ruler and an embossing tool
Bone Folder (if you dont have one I am sure you can borrow one on the night)
Strong sticky tape - preferably the red one but I dont think that wet glue will be easy to use on this project
patterned paper 5 1/2" x 11"
card that matches patterned paper 11" x 1"
A border punch (I will bring mine if you dont have one)
Bits to decorate your bag
Ribbon to tie it up with
Tab punch if you have one and some card to make tabs, preferably the same as your 11"x1" (I shall bring my punch with me).

The price, as usual, is £3.00 per person and £2.00 for teenages. Dont forget your mugs, badges and anything you have made recently to show everyone.

If you have any questions or would like more information, please get in touch.

Everyone welcome and hopefully, some ladies that I met at the papermax show last Sunday will be joining us.

Speaking of the papermax show, here are a few photos for you

Looking forward to seeing you there
