    Making cards - Ideas for beginners (part 4) 24th Feb 10 at 1:25 PM
    Welcome to the Card Craft thread where there are many members who are new to card making as well as the more experienced members who love helping others out on their path to making cards. If you are new to this craft please do post and somebody will be along with some advice for you

    Please note this thread is now a continuation of an original thread on making cards - Part 1, the second thread - Part 2 , and the third thread - Part 3 it may be a good idea to look these first for advice

    oooh shiny new thread!!! hopefully I MIGHT be able to keep up with this one... well for a bit anyway!!

    ooooh I want to find papermill at NEC - wanted to last time but had NO room left in my trolley!! haha!! - have started a list...

    Papermill for card/paper (errrm obviously!)
    Electric die cutter - cricut? robo - want to see demos if poss really tempted by the 'pink' cricut at the moment NOT just cos its pink honestly!!
    Nesties
    Punches
    inks for stamping - since I'm mid clearing/sorting have discovered I actually have a ton of stamps and I've never done any stamping & actually have hardly any inks and not a clue which ones to buy!!!

    Don't think my sealed tin is feeling heavy enough for my list so far and I'm bound to think of more stuff...

    Thanks for the shiny new thread .....

    Pepop as for the trolley they sell them in 8's ... maybe we should have a group buy I need 8 for the NEC, then Popkins will need 64 for all her stuff
    Maybe I should hire a trailer for the car?

    Afternoon all, 'fraid darent sit too long as will fall asleep - must keep going - and its swimming AND its Parents Evening!! I want my bed!!!

    Just incase it may be of use to some of you - as I only realised they do fill your own boxes with card & paper at The Works - not sure if its only certain stores though because this one was near my mums & the one near me doesnt - thought might come in handy as there isnt a papermill near us bit of a trek to York or Metrocentre. Didnt get chance to check out the quality though

    Lovely bits & pieces for easter in the poundshops & home bargains if you want to check them out - got some cute stickers & lovely ribbons for 99p each.

    Lei, not sure if commented on your blog - but your candles are lovely

    Hey a lovely new thread, thank you Savvy

    Blimey, I now have no idea what I read catching up on thread no. 3 so sorry, no individual mentions

    I completely forgot to buy some Promarkers last night on the Pollycrafts site, what a numpty

    Did a huge supermarket shop this morning so feeling knackered, the trolley was so heavy but DS2 was an angel. He needed a wee towards the end of shopping so I dashed himn off to the loo and then when I got back I couldn't find my trolley, I thought I'd have to do all the shopping again but then found it, I'm sure someone had moved it

    Have a good rest of the day everyone and hugs to everyone who needs one/wants one x

    The Wife wanders in, has a look round, there's posh! All shiny & new.

    Have I been asleep or was me head in a cake but I can't find funky fairys blogspot? Have they still got their online shop?

  • THE-WIFE
    Flourgirl, that was a bargain at papermill as their refillable brown boxes of card were 5 last time i was there.

    Phew - have a day off and have pages to catch up on and a new thread!

    Did anyone order the Tim Holtz TSV yesterday? I had it my basket 3 times (along with cropadile) and removed it each time, so was very good, but am kinda regretting it today. I was going to buy it using the cheque method (so that I could be sure it wasn't an impulse buy!), but am still not 100% how it works I'm assuming that if I order and say I'll pay by cheque, if I later decide that actually I don't want it, I can simply cancel the order? Can anyone confirm this as I've read of people doing it, but can't remember where!

    The-Wife - those flowers sound great and after yesterdays QVC Tim Holtz extraganza I'm so going to have a go at doing something with script and sepia tones. You've clearly started a trend

    Rusty - great cards. Love the male card it's brilliant. Thanks for the link.

    Chocolate.orange - lovely cards. Really like the Mother's Day card.

    Ali B - love your cross stitches, can't believe how quickyl you are making them.

    Sunrise 27 - love those fairy cards and box

    Tomsmum - sorry your down in the dumps, think it's this never ending Winter. Lovely card on your blog.

    Lei - love those candles.

    Thriftyscotslass - love the girls on tour card

    Saucysecrets - can you send me a link to your blog, please.

    Sorry if I've missed anyone, but it has been a marathon trying to catch up!
