- Hi, Welcome to my Blog. I'm an avid crafter; Scrapbooking, Cards, ATCs, Tags, Altered Books, Art Journaling, Décopatch, Knitting, Crochet, and Embroidery amongst other things. I live in Surrey, UK with my husband and son. For exercise I play badminton and I have been Geocaching since 2009 and now and again Pokémon Go. Recently I got back to Ballroom and Latin Dancing too. I run a UK based on-line papercraft group.

Unfortunately we had to postpone the February Craft Club as my son was ill but we resumed on the 2nd Monday in March for card making, banter and laughter.
We made our backgrounds from 5 strips of coloured paper.
There was a little bit of trouble in getting the strips cut straight on the paper trimmer but I made up the hummingbird card from some wonky strips with the spaces covered with 2 additional narrow strips.
We used white silhouette diecuts on top, and some coloured butterflies too.
We also used up the left over pieces from the strips to make mosaic toppers.
Here are some of the cards made on the day.

It is great to see that, despite all having the same diecuts to work with, all the cards still have their own personal style.
Next Craft Club is on Monday 14th April 2014.
