    Good Afternoon Ladies

    Hope everyone is ok on this horrible wet afternoon?

    Just a quickie, does anyone have the tutorial link for the lovely pocket fold cards that have been done lately?

    Thanks

    Hels102 - Glad you are feeling better today.
    Yes, apart from the gold stars & line. I make so many mistakes when I hand craft things 'cos I'm ham fisted I prefer using pc - also I think little ones don't really appreciate lots of fancy so I went for the bold approach. I got a free poster with the 'Thomas' stuff on it, scanned it, then sent the poster to gt nephew.
    If you pm me your sons name & age I'll have a go at making him one the same or I can email you some pics if you want to have a go yourself. Haven't forgotten your stamps - just not remembered to take your address with me.

    Sorry furrypig only just saw your post. It's on the 26th/27th september and you can buy the tickets cheaper in advance here. List of exhibitors here.

    Can't wait - will be my 3rd time this time and for once I actually have a list! (and not enough money! :D )

    I'm contemplating a trip down south for this too. Is it worth a 3-4 hour drive?

    Dragonflew!

    Thanks a million, that's exactly the one I was looking for.

    By the way, those were fab notebooks you made for the teachers, can I ask did you cover the inside of the notebook too, or just the front of it??

    Thankyou I didn't cover the insides just folded the edges over neatly and stuck down with strong double sided tape.

    Hello Everyone

    I wondered - if money were no object, would you purchase a Cricut machine??

    Personally nope - I watched a demo on create and craft last week and it looked great but not for me :p.
    Give me a bug any day plus unlimited money to buy all the dies embossing folders and nesties ;)
    Officially a non-smoker but still rounder than recommended :p

    I've borrowed my friends cricut expression a couple of times and if money were truly no object then yes I would.
    I've considered saving up to buy one but the cartridges are quite expensive. That said - because the size you're cutting out is variable then you do get a lot of variation for your money.
