Shoe shop at The Glitter Pot

Following my class last week where we made shoes at the lovely Glitter Pot. I thought it only fitting that I take a photo of all the shoes we made, and don't they make a wonderful picture?
We had a lovely day and everybody said the class was very relaxing, even Gill thought so too! I love to see Gill on my classes. Always news about her sheep and her fabulous photos to look at. I'm sure she has been enjoying Lambing Live on BBC 2 this week.
We also made a fridge card and a pretty box to put it in. It makes a perfect and unusual card.
I'm off on my hols soon, going to New Zealand and I can't wait. Must buy some Ugg boots and take loads of photos. Missing you all already.
Have planned lots of new classes for my return in April so look forward to seeing you all soon at The Glitter Pot. Meanwhile keeeeeeeeeep stamping!

Fridge cards in snowy Birmingham

I have a spare five minutes and just must update my blog.....I have been busy and away a lot during the past couple of months. From heavy rain in California to snowy Birmingham.
Had a great three days demonstrating on the Woodware stand at the trade show and saw lots of wonderful Woodware customers. There were five of us demonstrating and we each did a make and take too.
My first make and take were these little 'fridge cards' I designed especially for the show. I'm making them at The Glitter Pot this Friday the 5th March and demonstrating them at The Art of Craft in Farnborough on Saturday 6th March if anybody would like to join us please come along. They are such fun little things to make and great to stick on your fridge as a little surprise for that birthday person.
The ones here are only about 6cm square which I think adds to their appeal. You need a piece of 6cm square card, a piece of patterned paper 10cm square and some wadding (the type you would use for quilting. Layer all these together and wrap the paper around the back of the card. Decorate as you wish....oh, and don't forget to add any brads to the paper before you layer up! Add ribbon and stick a piece of magnate (Woodware do A4 sheets of it now) on the back to hold everything in place.
Stick to the fridge and admire.
