Sneak Peek!

Hi there.  Here is a photo of a card I made recently using some of the fabby new products from the Stampin' Up! Autumn Winter Catalogue.  I posted out the catties to my club ladies and regular customers last week but if you would like a copy too, just let me know and I will bob one in the post to you.

Demonstrators could order from the new catty from the beginning of August, but customers have to wait a few more days (28th August).   I delayed this months club order so they can get their hands on the brand new stuff as soon as possible.

Here is the card
I used a gorgeous stamp set called Seasonally Scattered and a new embossing folder called Filigree Frame as it just fit nicely around the image.  To stamp the image, I used the Baby wipe technique with three colours of ink, Pistachio Pudding, Old Olive and Garden Green.  To be honest, this image looks so much nicer when stamped in a single colour as the detail is amazing, but the baby wipe technique was something a little different.

Wondering where I got the Old Olive Basic Rhinestones?  They are clear ones that I coloured with an Old Olive Blendability marker!!!  So you can colour coordinate even more - I love that, it saves SOOOO much time and money!

 Hope you are having a great weekend?  Mine has been lovely, on Saturday I went to Leeds Corn Exchange with the lovely Hazel and we had a great day chatting to people about our other little venture, South Hill Designs.  Thanks for coming to see us ladies, we had a fab time and everyone loved the lockets and jewelry

Heres a photo of our tables.

And a bit more news... I have decided at long last to go to the Stampin' Up! Convention in Brussels - Woo Hoo!!!  Im blaming Hazel for making me go though....

Sparkling Birthday

Told you I'd be back with some of my projects didn't i!?

My niece joined me with South Hill Designs and here is the card I made for her birthday. Happy Birthday, Rachel

I used Rich Razzleberry and Daffodil Delight Blendabilities markers to colour the Blended Bloom flower - and also to colour the glitter!!!

I showed my ladies how to do this in last weeks class, it's really easy and looks fab.

Not seen the sentiment 'sparkle' before? Well it's a stamp you won't get to see for a while but as demonstrators we got the chance to earn it free last month - keep you eye out for it being available soon.

Hope your having a great weekend.

Well, I'm another year older and I think I'm getting a little wiser - with some things...

I'm also starting to get my crafting mojo back as I had a play after our class last Saturday! Got some more new goodies from the SU Autumn Winter cattie too so my fingers are twitching as the urge to get in my craft room gets stronger.

Anyway. Here are some if the beautiful birthday cards I received. Firstly a stunning card and box from my lovely friend and amazing crafter Shirley.

I cant seem to create a link to her blog on my phone but this should take you there.

Here is what my Mum made me. Did you know I have a slight tendency to anything orange...

And another card and box from my SU Mum, Sara.

Here's Sara's blog.

There's no wonder I'm getting my mojo back being surrounded with all these amazing crafters!!

I'll be back soon with some more stuff. Take care
