Blog Candy & Workshops!

Blog Candy is finally here....................








A bumper pack of stamps and a brand new inkpad from Woodware called "Yinks"!!


All the stamps are brand new and never been used - except for the Hero Arts flower stamp that I used in one of my videos (see earlier posts) and so many of you have been asking about it that I thought I would chuck that in too!!

There is one sheet of Christmas Stamps; 2 sheets of stamps from Banana Frog; 2 stunning red rubber stamps coutesy of Crafty Individuals; 2 fab wood mounted stamps from Coronado Stamps in the USA; Handmade stamp courtesy of Hero Arts; Hero Arts Flower from Me (!) and a fab new inkpad from Woodware called Yinks which is a black pigment ink!

Just leave a comment to be put into the draw - But, you must be a follower!!
Winner will be drawn next Friday - 1st April!

--------------------------

Also, must also let you know that my calendar is booking up blumin quickly with workshops and demonstration days. I cannot tell you how happy I am to be travelling around the country meeting so many crafty friends - so exciting!

I now have days booked in Hamilton near Glasgow; Aberdeen; Skipton; Lake District; Fleetwood; Lancaster and there are lots more to come!

Another place lots of you have asked me for is Wales - would love to come to Wales. Will keep you up to date on that!! Also check out the coloumn on the right hand side with all of my Demo Dates and Workshops Dates too.

In the meantime, any other areas???? Just email me at mrsashaw@googlemail.com or leave a comment here.



The next event is a weekend of workshops at Inkspot in Hamilton near Glasgow on the 8th & 9th April.






I will be doing a Grand Calibur Workshop on the Friday afternoon with Nestabilities, Embossing Folders and showing you how to really get the best out of your machine! How many of you have a system like this still in its box and you don't know what to do with it? I'll show you!








On Saturday 9th April I am teaching a Dreamweaver Stencils & Paste Workshop - I am so in love with Dreamweaver Stencils and on air at QVC I never get enough time to show you properly - So cannot wait to show you how simple it is to create amazingly stunning results with these fab products. I am also going to show you how to add a bit of sparkle to your pasted images with Perfect Pearls and Mica!! Wit Woo!!





On Saturday afternoon is my Alcohol Ink & Distress Ink Workshop
Cannot tell you how excited I am about this one as I am currently messing (sorry working) with new techniques with these fab products and I cannot wait to share them with you - This is truly going to be a great fun workshop. I am going to show you how to use your alcohol inks to create amazing background effects and how to co-ordinate them into your cards. I will also show you have to use Distress Inks too! A great introduction into the world of colour!
If you would like more info/to book on this weekend of workshops contact Inkspot directly on
01698 286401.
Until next time
