On Sunday the 3rd December Crafting Ireland attended the Create With Kate Christmas Craft Jamboree.
We arrived to the event in Athlone at 9.45am and promptly started shopping as Kate had brought the shop along with her! After some restrained shopping we got our crafting spaces set up. There was a scheduled class at 11.30 which was to make a beautiful floral embellishment, with Anne teaching us. Her flowers are amazing and we really enjoyed the class and the resulting flower!
After the class we cropped away. We entered a few items into the challenge which was to create a card, scrpabook layout or altered item. The only rule was to use the stamps in the goodie back provided to us all. Not a bad rule at all!!
The creations entered into the challenges were amazing, all the ladies there just blew us away with their talent!
Nicole did a wreath making demo for everyone and showed how to make a quick and easy Christmas wreath.
Timi did a scrapbook layout class that showed some fantastic techniques for making a Christmas themed layout, including a crepe paper Poinsettia on it!
There were some more some fantastic demos. Anne did a demo on card making with the new Sizzix and Hero art sets and Kate showed us all what Frantage was!!
It was a superb day out, lots of shopping, crafting and goodies up for grabs. A big thank you to Kate for having us and roll on the next one!!
