Playing with stencils 1

Yesterday I had my monthly meeting at ACTSA (ACT stamp Artists), It's a fun group we have Lana from Keep It Simply Stamping (KISS) who comes every meeting and always has lot's of goodies for us to buy from lot's of different companies including Ranger, TCW, Stazon etc. so we get our retail therapy.
 We also have demonstrations, Yesterday we had a back to basics on stencilling, demoed by Tania Shaw and Pam Palmer, We also had steam punk  demoed by Mary Craddock and Jess Hawkins. Both the demos were fab and we had printed notes so we could play at home.
 We also had a lovely afternoon supplied by our wonderful events group.
There is always lot's of people to chat with, along with a Raffle and a card challenge....
 Anyone living in the Canberra area who loves paper crafts should come along and join the fun, the first meeting is free, then you can join or if you only want to come sometimes pay a small fee when you visit. Yearly membership is $70 or it is $12 per visit
