I have a class here this evening which should be really fun; a small group (necessitated by the size of my table) will be playing with the cute little stamp set, Springtime Hello. Everybody is getting a stamp set in their kit so there will be no waiting around for stamps at least!
I’ll start showing you the projects on Sunday, if I get time to post – I will be heading off to the Food & Craft Fair at Broomfield Hall, so please pop into say hello as I will be delighted to see a friendly face!
Here are this evening’s kit bags, all packed up and ready to be delved into. I used some of the Brights DSP Patterns Stack and made a name label in My Digital Studio. The finishing touches were a punched butterfly and a paper flower made using the gorgeous new Spiral Flower Die.
After my initial reticence about this die, I had another play and fell in love. Yes, another U-turn to add to the growing list! So I just had to order it in my final Sale-a-Bration order of the year. You do really need a hot glue gun with this die and I realised that my hatred for hot glue guns was deeply unfair, as I had only ever used a cheap one from Home Bargains. Once I’d had a go with a good quality model, I was hooked - so I’ve ordered one of these today, too.
Today I learned that it’s not possible to mend your rubber gloves with hot glue! I cannot bear to wash up without rubber gloves, as I have such dry skin, and was horrified when the inevitable hole appeared (always the right hand, so if anyone has a collection of right gloves to go with my array of left gloves we could arrange a swap!) and I had no spares available.
Nothing ventured, I thought, so I attempted a repair with my (cheap Home Bargains) glue gun. It lasted for the washing of two cups and a spoon, then simply floated away.
