Sneak Peak!!

Hi Girls, as promised here is a sneak peak of the mini album that we will be making as one of the projects on July 1st, (bling, flowers and embellies to be added yet hint, Prima and Tim!!)

It is a 6×6 mini album that you will be making from scratch but don’t worry all the pages will be precut so you can concentrate on the construction method (how cool is that!).  This is a great chunky album for your summer pics with 14 pages in all (including covers) so you will have plenty of room to add your 4×6 photos and journaling.

Remember you will also be making a co-ordinating slider box to store your album in and it will look fabulous on any shelf.  This would also make a fabulous gift if you can bear to part with it (i know i won’t lol!).  So book your kit here

Happy Crafting and chat tomorrow

Workshop alert!!

Hi eveyone!

I’m afraid i’m way behind in my blog posting so expect a lot of entries in the next week :-).  I have a card tutorial, some meaurements on covering your Cargo and Trinket cases as well as some photos from the crafting Ireland Crop!

I am currently looking out my Kitchen window at the wintry weather, I have the fire lit and I am trying to get warm!  Not Good ;-(  I was in Limerick for the last couple of days, visiting my 92 year old Gran who had a stroke a couple of months ago and my Aunt who is in the Hospice there.  My Aunt has been battling terminal cancer for the last 12 years and is constantly outwitting the doctors with her sheer will to live, Go Girl!!  I also got to spend a lovely evening with the wonderful ladies from the Busy Bees Cardmaking Club who asked me to bring along my mobile shop.  I missed Eva’s crop though, my son had a temperature of 102 and wouldn’t let me go :-(.  Made me doubly sad when I realised that in another few years he won’t need me anymore.  Will definately make it when I am in Limerick again, crop’s are great; you get to make new friends with people who share the same interests not to mention crafting time!!

Right, i’m finally getting dwon to the reason for this post:  Anne and I are going to run a workshop on the 1st July in Castlebar.  We have decided to do a Bo Bunny mini album, a pretty storage box (for the album) and if you are all very good and we have some time left (lol!), a bonus project!  The Bo Bunny Collection we will be using is the Alora Collection, check some inspiring images here.  It’s a gorgeous bright collection full of fun elements and of course we will be teaming it with some fabulous Pima products Yum Yum!

Here’s a taster from the Bo Bunny Blog

You’re in My Thoughts by Tomoko Takahashi

The kit will include everything you need to make all of the above along with full instructions.  We will even have the album pages PRECUT so you can get the most from the day (is that a sigh of relief i hear lol!)

Cost for the day is €45, includes a totally fanastic kit full of Create with Kate goodies, minimum of three projects with printed instrutions; tea, coffee and snacks and a shopping discount on the day at the Create with Kate shop.

You can book the workshop at our online store  and pick up from the Castlebar Train Station can be arranged.

We are limited in space so do book early.  Sneak peaks to follow shortly,

See you then and happy crafting in between
