Welcome to the Rubber Stamping Workshops Blog

Here you can find out all the latest RSW news, get details of special offers & view projects made using rubber stamps. Most of the projects shown here will be made from Stampin' Up! products, as I'm an Independent Stampin' Up! demonstrator, covering Cheshire & Greater Manchester.

New Clubs

We have some new clubs at Rubber Stamping Workshops!

Altrincham Rubber Stamping Group
We meet on the 1st Tuesday of each month, between 7-9pm, to share ideas & work on projects. Most people either bring projects to work on or purchase some card or a kit while at the meeting. There are many stamps & tools available for use, including Stampin' Up! products. There are products available to purchase at the meeting, eg. club kits, card, paper, embellishments & anyone interested in buying Stampin' Up! products can also place orders, as there's an independent Stampin' Up! demonstrator on site. We also meet on the 3rd Sunday of each month for a full day meeting. This runs from 10am to 4pm & a small project is included in the price. Lunch isn't included, so please bring your own.

Technique Club
As it's name suggests, this club is all about learning stamping techniques! Over time, you'll build up a fantastic technique portfolio, with step-by-step instructions plus a completed sample made by you! You'll also learn how to put these techniques into practice by creating projects at each meeting using your newly learned technique. The club meets on the 2nd Tuesday of each month, between 7-9.30pm.

At the meeting, you will receive step-by-step instructions & you'll make a sample to attach to your instructions & file in your folder. You'll then make some projects using the technique you've just learned. The cost per monthly meeting is £10, which includes refreshments, printed instructions, page protector (for filing) & all materials & equipment needed to make the sample & projects. You'll also receive full tuition on how to perform the technique.

Can't make the meeting? Not a problem - either collect your missed packs in person, or download the technique from this site. You can also be a virtual member & just download the techniques. You'll miss out on the fun of being taught the technique & making the projects, but you'll still get the step-by-step instructions & photos of some great samples.

Shoe Box Swap Club
If you've never been to a shoe box swap, then you don't know what you're missing! You simply design a project and prepare enough supplies for everyone in attendance to re-create it! You bring the stamps, ink, card, paper, embellishments and any "special" adhesive needed (like glue dots or Crystal Effects) in a shoebox or similar container, then rotate the boxes around the room completing each others' projects! We meet on the 3rd Tuesday of every month, 7-9.30pm.

Chat & Challenge
Come along & have a cuppa & a chat with other local crafters, while indulging your competitive side with our crafting challenge! Each month we'll be offering a different challenge for you to join in with. This could be a sketch, a colour inspiration, using a particular tool, stamp or embellishment....we have a large range of challenges to keep you busy for months to come!

We meet on the 4th Tuesday of each month, between 7-9pm.
