Hello everyone,

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and are now looking forward to Blackpool. Anything we need to tell you will be posted here so that it stays at the top and we dont have to keep bumping up like on Do Crafts.

If anyone has anything they can donate to the raffle can you contact Angie or myself. Similarly if you have any dietary or mobility requirements you need to let me know ASAP.

Thanks, see you all soon

Latest craft meet of the Crafty Devils

The lastest meet of the crafty Devils was a two day one. Saturday was thin on the ground for people, but areallt lovely day! So I guess the rowdy crowd all attended on Sunday.

November Night Out and Vote


As it will be nearly Christmas and also as there are loads of birthdays in November we thought we would have a night out. This means that one one of the November meets will be a 2 day meet and a night out on the Staurday night. Some people may want to stay over and we thought we could book some travel lodge rooms if 2 people share it will be about £20 each.

Can you please vote on the right hand side and let us know which weekend suits you best?

Blackpool Retreat 30th and 31st January 2010

The details for next years retreat have been finalised and we are now taking bookings with very limited spaces. The retreat is open to all paper crafters.

Meet is held in Blackpool and we usually use 2 Bed and Breakfast hotels, this year we will be using a separate hall to craft in as it became very cramped last year.

If you would like some more information this can be found on the DoCrafts forum or contact patriciahurst@hotmail.com

End of Julys meet

i set the challenge for this meet, i thought it was quite a good one but it didnt seem too popular with some of you ladies
i gave each lady a pick of a kit which consisted of a set of instructions, sheet of backing paper, ribbon, stamp or sticker and some jewels or brads, the instructions were for a bagelope which they then had to decorate using the goodies from their pack

here are the instructions they were given

Bagelope instructions

Take an envelope of any size

Seal the flap completely. You may need to use a little extra glue at the ends

Cut off the top to form the bag opening..

Score fold lines along the three sealed edges to the required size making sure they are all the same width if you have a score board this will be slightly easier. These score lines will form little squares in the bottom left and right corners.

Score these boxes in half diagonally to make two triangles, starting from each bottom corner and scoring inward.

Fold along the scored lines to form the bagelope.

The folded triangles will poke out on each side.

Fold the triangles under and glue them to the bagelope’s bottom.

Fold the top over to make a lip so that the bag is fully secure (optional).

You can seal the bagelope in many different ways.. A few options are: Velcro, double-sided tape, or file folder

Decorate as required making sure you use all of the elements included in your pack

Here are the results

and to all you ladies who didnt manage to make the meet dont worry i have a set for you which i will bring to the september meet(hope you didnt think you got out of it.)

Hope you are all having a good time

Just wanted to say am thinking of you all while you are enjoying yourselves. Flu nearly gone and had my last tablet see you all in August. Son driving me mad already will be grey bu end of august.

craft meet on may 31st

Had a great meet, not as many turned up today so there was plenty of space for those of us that did. The weather was very hot today and i think it was putting us crafters off slightly, even i only managed one card today and that was the challenge card.

Anyway here are the pics of our challenge cards, it was a sketch which was created by loretta fromthe do crafts forum for her mionday challenge, we were late entering but better late than never i suppose,

thanks for the template loretta
