Hi all do you fancy being part of an amazing opportunity? Stampin’Up! UK are doing a wonderful Card challenge for the Ronald McDonald House Charities which they support and I would love you to join my Team and I to help them succeed in making 20,000 Cards.

As you can see above my Team and I have taken on the challenge again from Stampin’ Up! to make as many Christmas cards as we can to add to the total.

We are doing our challenge on Saturday 2nd December  😀 we have a range of easy cards for everyone to make so you really don’t have to be a crafter to come and help us out, if you know anyone that could come along with you to help us please let us know we will be very grateful for all the help we can get.

We will be starting the challenge at 10am and finishing at approx 4pm, we will split the day up into hourly slots so if you only can come for an hour that’s absolutely fine but if you want to stay longer that’s great 😁 all that I ask is please can you book in as we can only seat 15 crafters at any one time although we do have a breakout area with sofas in if you need to wait a few minutes, Refreshments will be available.

The cost for this charity challenge will be £5.00 if you bring a friend that will reduce to £4.00 this money is towards the cost of the event it’s NOT being run as a profit making event if there is money over after all the costs have been covered it will go directly to The Ronald McDonald charity.

So the challenge is on we would love to see you all to help us make a difference see below some of the cards we will be making ✂️✂️✂️✂️😁😁

It’s been a very busy October 😊

Hi Everyone 😄

Well we are now on the last day of October and what a busy month we have had at Jilly’s Creative Corner, I started on 1st October with the afternoon monthly class in this one I showed the ladies how to do the ‘Shaving foam’ technique we had great fun mixing up different colours and then I designed a card to showcase their work, see the picture below and I’m sure you will be amazed at how different the colours look 😁

So following on from this great class my next one was a team event, my team Sam, Nicky, Lorraine and myself got together and each designed a Christmas card and we ran a day of crafting we called it ‘Stamp a stack’ so everyone who came along made 16 Christmas cards 4 of each of the designs we all had a fabulous day below is a picture of us all holding two cards each so all the designs where shown. 😁

Just finished my final class before our Holiday 😀


Had a great crafting day with the Ladies yesterday that’s my final class before our Holiday to Scotland, my Hubby is a mad cyclist and he has a race in Ayrshire next weekend. Update I didn’t end up having time to upload this blog before our Holiday so now we are back already 😂😂, we had amazing weather everyday except the morning of my Hubbys race so unfortunately it didn’t go as well as he had hoped but he came home safely which is all that matters to us his family 🚴☔️ 💨 😀

The class was smaller this week as some of the regulars were away, so I did things slightly differently, instead of making all the kits up ready for the Ladies. So the ‘Vanity case’ project I wanted them to be able to choose their own colour ways so we started from scratch, chose the card stock, DSP and then I showed them step by step how to Cut the card stock and the DSP and then how to put it all together, it did take longer but the results were amazing  😉 So this week we only made 2 projects but I think the Ladies did an amazing job of both of them.

I would at this point like to thank (annshappystampers) for the inspiration for the Vanity case, (Pootlespapercraft Sam Donald) for the inspiration for the non glue box and Crafty Caroline for the inspiration for the Ladies gift boxes 😀:-)

We have so much fun in our classes and they are very relaxed.

I currently have a couple of spaces available in these classes and would also be happy to add other classes especially if any of you are completely new to crafting and think ‘You could Never make anything’ as you are not crafty at all, you would be very surprised how many people come to class and say exactly that but go home so happy with something they have actually made themselves 😀so if anyone would like to join in the fun just follow the link and book yourself in, or drop me a comment on here and I’ll get back to you.

I would love to craft, eat biscuits/cake and drink tea/coffee with you. 😀✂️
