Ally Pally

We're back to reality now! After a very hectic Easter break, followed by a really busy and exciting weekend at Ally Pally, I really wasn't ready to return to work. But needs must unfortunately!

Thank you to those who came to see me on the Particraft stand. Sorry I wasn't able to hold a long conversation!!!! My voice is slowly returning, but bringing along a rotten cold with it!!! I hope those of you who had a go at the make and takes, enjoyed them. We will be posting instructions for both the card and the mini scrapbook. You can see the card onMaria’s blog , along with instructions for the rose. Lynsay will be putting her scrapbook on her blog shortly. I will let you know when it's there. Anyone interested in the gift bag will find a tutorial here:Particraft

I have loads of wonderful goodies to sort through and play with. Maria managed to find me a flower punch to make the roses, but we later found it was a 5 petal instead of a 6 petal. Well, just to let you know, it can be done with the 5 petal. You have to be a bit more careful when folding to find the centre. Make sure you don't fold the petals in half!

The pink rose is made with the 6 petal punch, and the red with the 5 petal:

Here is a photo of the 'TEAM', preparing the stall on Friday

Ready for the rush on Saturday
