We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.

Let's get the whole world papercrafting!

At the end of last week I spent a lovely morning with friends and friends of friends, introducing them to some card making, including a little stamping, using some Card Candi, and making twine flowers.

Here are a couple of the mini projects -

Not sure whether I convinced everyone that stamping is good for you! I think inky fingers were a bit of a problem!  But the twine flower went down well, and of course, can be used on stitch projects too.

Still on the same subject of spreading the word about papercrafting, the Ashtead Cardmaking and Craft Club had a pitch at the recent Ashtead Village day, selling members' cards and other makes.  This is also a way to attract new members.  I spoke to several enthusiastic people, so I hope to see a few new faces at the next workshop. Here is a little taste of our pitch. It was a lovely sunny day, if a little breezy.  More pics on the Club's blog.

Happy papercrafting, and support your local Craft Club!
