Any one never been to a craft workshop?? You are really missing out if you haven't. I remember my first many years ago now, where I learnt to heat emboss. The lady who taught me now has her own shop and has had for the last 10 years, The Stampers Gallery, The Boskins, Tarleton.
I've amassed my own craft stash and could probably open a shop of my own, however, I think I have found my niche and prefer to play with inks, paints and stamps now rather than peel offs, stacks of patterned paper, felt or Lace. So, when I attend a workshop now, I expect to do just that and attending a Lindsay Mason workshop amazes me every single time.
I went over to St Helens yesterday to Crafts 4 U 2 Do for one such event and was so happy with the 3 cards we made, I even stayed up 'til 2.30am this morning finishing one off!!!
Our first card was just amazing. Made with Lindsay's new Xmas stamp set 'Build a Snowy scene', I could not believe the techniques we were shown and had to ask where these amazing ideas come from because I see a stamp and just - well, stamp it. Look at my card.
The next was more traditional but again, incredible.
Finally, we started the 3rd card but ran out of time in which to complete it, hence my stopping up late.
This one is just so hilarious.
Here are some photos of Lindsay's sample cards. If you compare those with the ones I made, you can see what a good teacher Lindsay is because there is hardly any difference!!!!!!!!!!
