April Playday

What a fab time we all had at the first of the big Bristol playdays on Sunday. Huge thanks for coming ladies, you've got no idea how chuffed I am that you all came and that everyone enjoyed themselves. Be great if everyone that wants to could email me a pic of the bookcard they made & I can add them all on here to see what a bunch of talented crafters we all became that day.

General consensus seems to be that playday should be a regular event so I've booked the community centre again for next month and as long as it's popular it's going to be the 2nd Sunday of every month.

So next playday is April 10th, 10am til 4pm at the Filwood Community Centre, Knowle Bristol. Cost will be £3 to help cover the cost of hiring the room and you'll need to bring a basic cardmaking kit, cutting mat, scissors, sticky stuff and card/pretty papers. I'll make a more precise list but please don't be worried if you havent all the tools needed as between us there's always plenty to share.

There are tea & coffee facilities in the room and lunch wise if everyone can bring a plate of something for a pot luck buffet. This time tho.. not quite as much ladies.. there were only 19 of us but I bet we could have fed 60 lol.

All are welcome, you don't need to be a stamper and you don't need to have any experience of card making or scrap booking. The ladies are very friendly and of mixed experience so there's always someone willing to lend a hand and help newcomers.

This is the main project we'll be making. It might look difficult but it's quite quick & easy to make. The most difficult part is deciding what colours and embellies to use lol.

Also on the menu is a technique "class" making and using paper masks (not the facial variety lol) and hopefully we'll all be going home with a stamped scene card.
