Happy Saturday! What are you up to? Been up since the crack of sparrows, going through the CraftalongaBarbie TV Classroom one more time. There’s a lot to pack and consider! I am not nervous yet – that’ll kick in tomorrow morning! But it’s fine. I know we will have a blast and you will enjoy yourselves. The really cool thing is that many hundreds of you will be joining in. Picture that. Hundreds of crafters in hundreds of homes will be sat in front of the box or the computer, stash at the ready! How superb is that?!
Remember: If your artwork goes a bit Pete Tong, if it doesn’t go as you would have wished it, that’s when you’re learning. Just keep calm and carry on! The whole idea of these love HOCHANDA classes is to stretch your crafting skills, to DO rather than WATCH. We are, in effect, making a template together, a visual mock up, so that you can then repeat the process in peace and quiet afterwards.
In the meantime, Paul is doing a Groovi Workshop at Colemans Craft Shop today, before he shoots off to Oundle for the 6pm launch (PART 2) of the beautiful 12” x 12” Designer papers. The more I use them the more I like them. I’m not a scrapbooker, so 12x12s have never been my thing. However. When it comes to making card inserts and matching envelopes, these are absolutely BRILLIANT!!!!
Paul is so good at this kind of artwork, this kind of papercraft. I learn so much from him. He worked with darling Wendy Stenton for many years, with her original and clever templates, so this kind of paper engineering is second nature to him.
He will be using our Pergamano Templates, so do tune in and see him work his magic…
Here’s a little gallery of inspiration from the ever clever team, using the 3 fabby dies which will also be on the show:

I would just like to point out that whilst we are doubling our presence on telly, and possible overloading – we have to. We have to help. Not for any other reason than we can. Where we can, we will.
