New workshop for christmas!

As  subscribers to my blog you are all  pre – invited to program consisting of 5 workshops for your christmas cards, from the 1st October.

Who wants to get their christmas cards made and still have left overs to make other amazing projects? Each workshop you will make 10 cards and also a gift using the Pear and Partridge Picture My Life collection.


I have made different price segments to suit everyone. For those who want everything of their own including adhesives so they can use all the leftovers to make other projects or even multiples ($25.30 per workshop) and also those who are budget aware and would like to come along and make the projects and only have a very small collection of leftovers ($16 per workshop no adhesives or washi tapes included)!

I will be running the workshops weekly on morning session and one night session.

Wednesday nights 7.30pm to 9pm starting 1st October

Thursday mornings 9.30am to 11am starting 16th October

You can swap and change between the workshops depending on what works best for you (for example you may do 2 mornings and 3 nights or whatever suits best). However bookings and RSVPS are essential to ensure there are enough seats for all at each event.

What a fantastic way to get all of your cards made, teachers gifts, friends gifts, mini albums and tags made ready for Christmas. Bookings essential via commenting on this post or my email

I will also be setting up this order as a party order so all that participate will also have the opportunities to win prizes at every single event! Why not join me!!!

Final RSVPS will be need to be made by 17th September so I can order products ready for you.
