Picture Perfect

To start i want to say congratulations  to William and Kate, didnt they both look absolutely stunning today. I made this Wedding day card quickly using the cut and emboss broquade window from cuttlebug. I am loving simple cards at the moment, not only do they elegant but they only take a couple of minutes to make, always handy if you need to make a card in a hurry.

As promised here are the photos from the craft night on the 7th of April. What a lovely change to have the sun shining that late at night. For anyone who has never been to a craft night the papeterie run them from 6.30pm to 9.30pm about once every two months. They cost is £10 a ticket, but for that you get to make cards and craft projects at 5 tables, enjoy a buffet and get 10% off of everything on the night.

As you can see it is a great night and a fab chance to meet up with like minded crafty people. Our next one will be held on Thursday 2nd of June from 6.30pm-9.30pm. You would think that having that much time to prepare i would have started prep for my table but in all honesty i will probably start the week before. We all know what it is like its too easy to get distracted playing with crafty goodies.

Better Late than never

Well here it is our first post only about two weeks later than originally planned, but with so much exciting things happening at the Papeterie over the next few weeks i thought i better get started.

 For those of you who have not heared we are having a Spring into Summer Designer challenge with a top prize of £100 worth of crafting goodies which closes on Saturday. So it is still not too late to send in your entries, you can enter as many cards as you like the only catch is you need to use something sold at the Papeterie. All the cards will be put up on the blog after the competition closes so that you can see the work of our talented entrees.

Speaking of putting up photos I will pop up some photos of our Craft Night, which was held on the 7th of April over the next few days. For anyone who has not been to one you are missing out they are a fanastic way of meeting lots of new crafty friends and learning new techniques.  I would have popped some up tonight but my dog is not too happy about the computer being centre of attention rather than him.

But at least now i have made a  start to the blog and i will keep updating it, i have a strange feeling that like crafting it may become quite addictive.

speak soon
