In May we had two sessions as usual, on the 1st and third Thursday mornings. On May 3rd we tackled ‘never-ending’ cards, requiring a great deal of concentration in order to achieve cards which folded this way and that way to provide four different decorated surfaces. ( It has occurred to me that perhaps these […]
The cards we completed in February were a delight, a Daisy Delight in fact, during our first session, when we completed two birthday cards, but the design could be used for other occasions too. The second session it was ‘that cut-away staircase card’ which demanded a great deal of concentration, but with the addition of […]
In November, our last month for card making this year, we worked ( or is it played? ) very hard. During the first session we made two beautiful Christmas cards, one of which involved stamping on acetate and the other constructing a wreath from paper pentagon shapes, thus indulging another pastime close to the authors […]
In October we had a successful time as ever, firstly making what I can only describe as ‘construction’ cards as demonstrated by Jill. One was an accordion-style card sporting playing cards and the other a maritime-themed flip card. Thank you for these ideas, both suitable to give to men – we always struggle with ‘man’ […]
Our sessions this month have been quite different. For the first session everyone was given a ‘goodie bag’, with a mixture of card, embellishments and templates to create their own designs. The second session was to make a ‘handbag card’ using a square of coloured card, a flower, leaves and sentiment, with time out to […]
No official cardmaking in August, but I am sure that has not stopped production by members of our group. We did however have two most enjoyable social events on what would have been our cardmaking session days. We met as a group for coffee and garden tours at the homes of two of our members […]

June has passed in a flash, with perhaps less activity than usual on the cardmaking front. Having said that, the first session in the month was gentle but productive. We made lovely summery cards portraying poppies and birds, using paper serviettes. A huge success! During the second it was ‘do it yourself ‘, a fun […]
At our meetings in May our subject matter seemed to centre on ‘flight’. Firstly, we enjoyed making cards portraying beautiful feathers made by ourselves from paper. Then in the next session great concentration was needed when we were shown how to make a box-shaped card with butterflies soaring from it. A lovely project! Vivian Hammond […]
