Card & a Cuppa

If you haven’t been to the Grange Chocolate Cafe yet you are in for a treat.  

These drop in Card & a Cuppa sessions cost just £5 and for that price you get to have a drink of your choice and make a beautiful card to take home (you will have a choice from two).  

These sessions are great for all abilities … and they are being held on the 1st Wednesday of each month.

I’ll be there from 10.00 am to 11.30 am, and I would love for you come along and craft with me and of course enjoy a cup of something delicious.

The next sessions are on  3 May, 7 June and 5 July.


I hold classes in both my craft studio and at the Handmade Craft Company shop over in the Holme Grange Craft Village (near Wokingham).

Classes at the Handmade Craft Company are held on Friday mornings and details for the next few months are as follows:

This is my craft studio where I have regular monthly classes and all day events. I can also hold parties here if you don't have enough space for you and your friends in your own home.

The room is in the basement of my home, and when I say chill out I mean just that. In the summer it is lovely and cool but it's also cosy and warm in the winter. There is plenty of room for 12 people, but I've squeezed 16 in for a team event and a few more for an annual Christmas Party.

I'd love to see you at a class and these are the class dates for the rest of the first half of 2017.  More maybe added, so please check back regularly.

Print to Page, Project Life by Stampin' Up! - Scrapbooking and Memory Keeping the quick and simple way

Project Life is a quick, simple and stylish way of getting your photos off your phone, computer or out of those dusty boxes you have under the bed or in the cupboard and into an album. No more cutting and pasting and spending hours on just one page - unless you really want to.

Project Life's pocket pages albums are quick and easy and there are lots of pre-printed card inserts and accessory kits to choose from to fill the pockets you don't have photos for.

Each 2 hour class costs £10.00 per person, and for that you receive a kit that you can use to make two 12" x 12" (double sided) pages. The rest of the kit will be yours to take home with you.

All you need to bring are some photos and photo safe adhesive, the rest will be provided for you.

Regular Monthly Card and Papercraft Classes

A 2.5 hour class costing £15.00 per person and includes at least £10.00 worth of Stampin' Up! products for you to use at class and then you get to take the extra home with you. The products could be in the forms of ribbon, cardstock, ink, markers, card kit or a stamp (or a mixture of items). Each class will feature three projects usually in the form of two cards and a 3D project. If there is no 3D project there will be four projects in the form of cards.

All classes must be booked and paid for at least two weeks in advance. If you book and pay for the class but are then unable to make it because of illness you will be provided with the class pack/goody bag and instructions. You will also have the opportunity to borrow any stamps and inks that you do not have so that you can complete the projects.

Come to class five times and your sixth class is free. You are responsible for keeping your card and reminding me when it is full.

Stylishly Simple Saturdays

You will make 5 simple and stylish cards which can be easily replicated at home. All card stock and paper will be pre-cut for you for this 2 hour class. You simply need to bring a basic craft kit (scissors, bone folder and adhesive of your choice).

The class is suitable for all, beginners and the more experienced crafter a like.

There will be a £5.00 discount if you attend one of the regular monthly classes on the same weekend.

All Day Craft Events

All Day events cost £45.00 per day and you will receive over £50.00 worth of Stampin' Up! products to use and take home with you. You will need to bring a basic craft kit with you (scissors, 12" trimmer, glue, red sticky tape, dimensionals etc) and also your own lunch. Tea, coffee and biscuits are provided throughout the day.

A £20 deposit will secure your place with the balance due two weeks before the event.

Private Classes

Can't make any of the regular classes but there is something you would like to do or try? If you and a group of friends (min 4 people) would like a private card class at your home (or in my craft studio) on a day to suit you, this can be arranged. Please contact me for further information.

One to One Classes

Always wanted to learn to stamp but not sure where to start? Let me help you at a one-to-one class where we can go over the basics and you can see for yourself just how easy it is to get great results. These classes can be held in my craft studio or at your home. Please contact me for further information.

Please email me if you are interested in attending any of the classes or if you are interested in having a private card/craft class.
