"Time" for a demo me thinks!

Hi folks.. Just finishing off a little bit of prep for this Saturday's (23rd February 2013, 9am - 3pm) FREE Stamping Gear Demo.. Now, this little darling took some working out, as it was not actually created using the Stamping Gear as such, but the principle behind it! Confused? Yah, me too!! If you are able to pop along on Saturday, I'll explain all! And don't forget, its Double Discount Day to all Pinnacle Crafts Club Members on the day! That's a 20% saving folks (usual exceptions apply).. See you there.. Andy.

Sharing the love on Valentine's Day...

Hi Guys. Happy Valentine's Day to you all... Rather than the more conformist "love & guff" Valentine's card, I've decided to share with you today another card using one of my currents "loves". My Pan Pastels. Had an absolutely cracking week so far teaching with them! There really have been some truly inspirational results. Looking forward to what the rest of the week will bring! Thanks for checking us out and see you soon. Andy.

Still feeling the love...

...for my Pan Pastels that is.. Just wanted to share with you a sample I made for Yesterday's & next Week’s lesson.
Had a great morning yesterday explaining, playing and demoing the virtues of the Pan Pastels. Such a receptive audience always makes the difference in a lesson. Hope you enjoyed it as much as I did ladies... Thanks for checking us out and see you soon. Andy.

My First Venture into...

...Pan Pastels! Well, it's been something I've been meaning to dabble with for a while now. But they never seem to be in stock long enough for me to constructively get my hot little hands on em! But now I have had a chance to play with them, I can really see what all the fuss is about!
I love em! They go onto your projects sooo smoothly! And if you've not been able to replicate "Saint Barbara Gray's" Brayering techniques, then these are a fantastic alternative!, as all of those who have booked onto Tomorrow's and next week’s Pan Pastels lessons will see!... Right, I'm off to play some more. Have a great day and thanks for checking us out. See you soon. Andy.

Happy Birthday Paul....

Hi Folks.. It's Paul's (B-I-L) Birthday today!
And here is the card I made for him. It is a play on the SteamPunk card I made last week, but this time in Blue! Although the colour has changed from the original, it's still no less effective. Just wish I had the time to experiment and play around with other colour combinations! But alas, time to move on to another technique this week.. Pan Pastels, here I come! Thanks for checking us out and see you soon. Andy.

Pinch Punch, first day of the Month...

Hi Everyone. Well, it's the 1st of February..! Where did January go? Seeing as it is now February, is it too early to start thinking of Christmas? Not if you are a crafter!! The more we do now, the less we have to do later in the year! Takes the pressure off a bit me thinks!!
Here's my first one for this year’s crimbo. Only thing is, starting this early, I bet I forget where I put them come December!! Ho hum! Have a great day and thanks for checking us out. See you soon. Andy..
