Inside the Box card

Jane Gill at work!

 JANE GILL assisted all of her crafty folk to create a flowery box concertina card, using some of her NEW stamp designs - all were very busy as they had sooo much to do - but what a beautiful result!  Jane is always so popular with her expertise and her knowledge.  We are very lucky she likes to visit us in the South West. 
Busy fingers at work making "Washi-tape" bunting to match "Annabelle with Bunting" stamp (WILD ROSE Studio) in my workshop!  Here's a finished card in another colourway.

Susan - our hostess for the day!
Francoise Reads designs were as colourful as ever -using Kalidacolour inkpads. Francoise new stamps -"FRIEND", "SMILE", "LAUGH" and "BEST" are really lovely for lots of events- they are in stock at Japonica.

Francoise has been visiting us to do workshops for many years and always brings us someting gorgeous to do.  She is a fab artist and designer, and an author too -a very talented lady.

OUR SUSAN (hostess with the mostest) showing one of the cards she made -Annabelle with lambs - a very pretty easel card for Easter.
The day of workshops went very well, home-made lunch by our caterers was delicious as ever...so the next one is in planning!
