New Year, New Post, New Club....

This year sees the start of the Kit and Kaboodle Club at The Craft Barn. It'll be held on the fourth Saturday of the month and the first kit is for a marquee sign, something like this:


This is done in muted tones, but I've also created a bright version with a different arrangement of lights:



You'll be able to choose what word you put in the middle - you could put someone's name there - and the colours that you like. There is also an option of larger 4" letters, although space on the front will limit the words you can create, ie. 'JANE ' would fit, but you'd struggle with 'ESMERELDA'!

So, if you fancy trying out something different or adding a little light to your life, come and join me on the link above!

A Little bit chalky.......

For Inky Fingers this week we're using VersaMagic inkpads and Cardio stamps. I don't do much with chalk inkpads but now I've had a go, I'm a bit hooked - you can create such beautiful, softly blended backgrounds.
Here's what we'll be making if you fancy coming along:
