Hello bloggers! We hope you have all had a lovely Easter and didn't eat too much chocolate! We are just around the corner from our Spring Demo Day so we are in full swing preparations for the big day tomorrow and the line up looks great. If you haven't had a chance to check out what's going on and who's demoing, we have a full break down in this blog post today.
The demo day will be taking place at two venues, the Crafts U Love Shop at Westcoats Farm in Charlwood and also at the Charlwood Parish Hall.
Demonstrators at the Shop: All day 10am - 4pm
Sue's demo has had a last minute change of plan due to a delay in the Bloom Impression tools coming into stock so Sue will now be demoing a mixed media/altered art technique using the Stampendous Creative Palette. Sue has made some fabulous backgrounds using acrylic paints, stencils and stamps that look fab on a card, scrapbook page or home decor project! And you can bet that each example has an element of vintage thrown in!
