Catching a flight!

Hello Ladies!

Just a very quick note to let you know that the Christmas kits are all ready for when I get back from New York.  I thought it was best done before jet lag rather than afterwards.

You will need to bring the following items with you to complete the project:

  • paper trimmer
  • scissors
  • cutting mat & craft knife
  • small paint brush (artist type...not decorating type)
  • foam pads/pop dots
  • DST/tape runner
  • large & medium acrylic stamping blocks
  • crop-a-dile or similar hole punch (I will bring mine with me if you don't have one)
  •   Black & brown ink pads - versafine or ranger archival.  I've used the coffee archival.  They will be used for stamping. Please do not use stazon on the stamps.
  • If you have one a gold ink pad & heat gun (gold inks usually need to be heat set to stop them rubbing off)
  • Scrap paper (sheet of copy paper will do)
  • Alphabets - stamps, or any left over thickers & stickers from Octobers classes.
  • Fine ribbon to embellish - possibly gold, purple, green or red.  Think Christmas colours.
  • If you have them - baby wipes.


    To help you to complete your Christmas record, start taking notes and photographs from the 1st december of your day.  This could be receipts from Christms shopping, lists - to-do, christmas card, presents...anything at all Christmas related.  If you have good or bad thoughts that day about the festive season - note them down.

Sadly I cannot order any more papers for the kits but I will be bringing some extra 2" book rings and chipboard if anyone would like some extra supplies to make other ring bound mini books.

See you all when I get back!
