Update on Me and My Crafting

Well, its very nearly 12 months since my last update - that is sooooo scary!

So much has happened - the main thing is that I am no longer with Stampin' Up!  This was a MASSIVE decision for me as I had been a demonstrator for about 7 years.  In some ways, SU made the decision for me as some of you may know I also sell South Hill Designs who were bought earlier this year by Youngevity.

Youngevity are huge in the USA and the only way I can describe them is that they are like the Amazon of direct sales,  They have loads of products including chocolate, coffee, make up, pet products - and also craft products - which is where SU said there was a conflict of interest.

Anyway, long story short, I am free to do what I want now - and I am LOVING the freedom.
-  Dont have to worry about what I post on my blog
- Can demonstrate any products I want in my classes
- Dont have to worry about using retired products (woo hoo!!!)
- I am learning sooo much about what other products are out there.  Its like I have taken off my SU blinkers and can see clearly again.

Here are the cards we made in our last Stampin' Up! class a few weeks ago.

Happy Birthday Kath

I can't believe I haven't posted for so long - life really has got in the way of things lately.

Here's a birthday card I made for my friend Kath's 60th birthday. Now, I had to do something pretty different as Kath is the one who started me making cards. And it worked! The first thing she asked was how I had made it - Result!!!

The letters were die cut using the Little Letters thinlits, Stamps used were a mixture of Larger Than Life Alphabet & Numbers, Beautiful Bunch, Petite Petals and Flower Shop. Matching punches and Lots of Labels Framelits were used to cut out the flowers and mats for the numbers.

Hope you have s fantastic weekend.

Thank You Card

Hi every one. Hope your enjoying the weekend. I've been really busy lately and had forgotten to post a photo of a card made for me by Olivia.

I gave her some of the items from my craft room a few weeks ago and here is the thank you card and cute ladybird she made for me. The ladybird matches the bag I have in the boot of my car too!

I'm having a stall at Locke Park tomorrow for the Rainbow Run if you want to come and see some of the new South Hills Designs lockets. So if your free, come over and support a great cause.

Class projects

I forgot to post the projects we did in last weeks class - oops!
I didn't put any sentiments on as I am saving them for emergencies.

Real mixture of styles and seeing the girls faces when I was distressing the card stock was priceless!!!

The butterfly card and bookmark were inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest - I thought I'd saved it but can't find the ladies details. I'll post as soon as I find them to give her the credit.

Next class details will be posted soon.

Enjoy your weekend.

Team Training Swaps and Challenge

We had our team training night on Wednesday - ALWAYS a great event for inspiration, motivation and a really good natter while crafting.

Here are the swaps I made, toppers to add to any project.

And here's what I did with mine.

A bit fiddly but I like how they turned out.

If you'd like to join our team or find out more, just contact me for more information.

Oh, nearly forgot. We've got our next class tomorrow so let me know if you'd like to come.
Have a great weekend

Happy Birthday, Mum

It was my Mums birthday on Friday and here's the card I made for her.

Look at me using all this Designer Series Paper on a card - not like me at all- but she's so worth it.

The MUM letters were made using simply Pressed Clay and the alphabet mould. It was a bit fiddly but a great way to add dimension and personalise a project.

Hope you having a great weekend
