Hi, sorry it’s been a while since my last blog. I’ve been really busy making up kits for the workshops at the Artstamps exhibition this weekend. I think everything is ready and I can’t wait to teach these workshops.
As promised, here are photos of the workshops I'll be running at the Edinburgh Corn Exchange, 4th and 5th June. Workshops are bookable on the day, times and prices are on here. Fancy Fold Cards With a few folds transform a sheet of card into a stylish pleated card. We'll make a monster card for the
boys and a floral card for the girls.
Baby Mini Albums
These cheque book style mini albums have a page for each month of baby's first year. It's your choice whether you make a boy or girl album in class as you get supplies for both.
Flower Pot Cards
These cute cards are bouquets of flowers that will never wilt. They have a pull out tag which reveals your message.
One for all you recipe collectors out there. Turn envelopes into pockets and store your recipes in style.
Big News. Big News. It has just been confirmed that I will be running workshops at the Artstamps Exhibition in the Edinburgh Corn Exchange. This show runs 4th and 5th June 2011. Check back, photos to follow soon.
Here goes, dipping my toes into the blogosphere. Watch this space for crafty goings-on and some pretty pictures. To start things off here's a bit about me.
I've always been a bit crafty, but things really kicked off in 1996 on holiday in America, when I first discovered Michaels and Jo-Anns craft stores. Wow! I took to cardmaking like a duck to water, and with a toddler in the house, had many a cute photo in need of scrapbooking. In the next few years I racked up a good few more trips to Americal, taking in classes on various cardmaking and scrapbooking techniques as well as collecting several hundred feet of till receipts :-) Did I mention I have an understanding husband?
In 2003, I took a Christmas job at The Paper Mill Shop in Livingston, which became permanent. Excellent! Staff discount on my crafting goods! I demo'd and ran weekly classes at the shop until its closure in 2011. Over the years, I have also demo'd and run classes at other craft shops and have run scrapbooking evening classes for West Lothian Council. In April 2010, I started running classes in the Community Wing of Simpson Primary School.
As well as teaching classes and demo'ing, I have made and sold a wide range of goods over the years - greetings cards, wedding stationery, scrapbooks, mini photo-books, hand-decorated vases & T-lighters, wine glass charms and much more. I sold these through a number of outlets including shops and craft & wedding fairs, as well as word of mouth.
Hi, I'm Gill and I'm a craftaholic! I live in West Lothian with my very understanding husband and teenage son.
I have been crafting for over 10 years and sell my cards/scrapbooks at fairs. I have taught classes for the last 4 years at various venues and currently run a weekly class in West Lothian.
