Christmas Themed Workshop in November!


I am holding 2 Christmas Themed workshops in November! Yep, I know leaving it a bit late aren’t I! lol  Well I am! so many of you have already started making all your Christmas Cards right? lol

Anyway, mine are Friday 11 November which unfortunately for you is now full and the other, Saturday 12 November 0930 – 1300 only has 2 spaces left!  So, if you fancy making these amazing (if I say so myself) projects, then go to my workshop page, click on Christmas themed and you can book your space and pay using paypal.

If you’re unlucky enough not to be living near me or can’t make the 12 November, then why not buy the class online from me instead?  You’ll get all the tutorials emailed to you for just £20.  Want the project kits too, no problem, for an additional £5 I will post them out to you (providing you give me your details lol) once payment has been cleared.  Even better, place an order with me for £35+ before end of October and once it’s been processed, and again as long as you have given me your details, you will get the class absolutely FREE!

So why not take a look at the amazing projects below, go and book one of the last two spaces at the workshop on Saturday 12 November or if you can’t come, pay for the class online, give me your address etc and I will email you the tutorials as soon as payment is cleared.

I will be holding another 2 Christmas Themed workshops in December, so make sure you check back to see what projects we will be making in those and book your space early!

New Home Pop Up Panel Card


I have finally been able to do some crafting, after a while away due to problems with my left hand.  I decided to have a go a what seems to be the latest craze in cardmaking – Pop Up Panel Cards!  Thanks to Dawn’s Stamping Thoughts for her youtube video pop up panel video on how to do the technique.

Here is my Pop Up Panel Card for a New Home.  There have been so many houses up for Sale and then Sold so quickly by me, that the Cafe where I sell my cards, No.9 Cafe, Bishops Cleeve, asked me to make some ‘New Home’ Cards to put in the rack.

Isn’t it great? I loved making it.  Do you fancy making it? If so, why not pop on over to my Classes page, click on the relevant Class Link, book and pay for your space on the Half Day Workshop.  More Details on my Classes Page  I really hope you will join me on this one-off class, spaces are limited to 6 people so don’t delay book today!

Thank You Card


I thought I would show you my latest ‘Thank You’ Card I made and gave to my customers that ordered from me this month.

star of light embossed star of light inside

Isn’t it gorgeous! I used the amazing Star of Light Bundle  and used Copper Embossing Powder  for the swirly stars behind the large stars.  The Large star, which also has a smaller star on top of it (sorry picture not too good) was cut out using the new Copper Foil Sheets!  Behind the Embossed Whisper White, I used the new Pumpkin Pie Glimmer Paper. It goes so well with the Copper Foil Sheets don’t you think?  Of course the Glimmer paper is just the right product for Halloween too!  Bet you’re wondering where the tiny heart cut outs are from? Well, when you cut out the intricate stars, these hearts are left behind.  So instead of throwing them away, I’ve used some on this card, and the rest I will put into a gorgeous shaker card!

The Inside of the card is simple but so effective, again using stamps from the Star of Light Stamp Set and Pumpkin Pie Ink.

All of the new products are in the Autumn/Winter Catalogue, which, if you do not have yet in your hands, you can contact me and I will send one out to you straightaway.  Of course if you can’t wait to get your hands on it, you can click on the Autumn/Winter Catalogue Link above, and have a look at all the gorgeous new products you can get hold of today!

Place an order for these products I’ve used today and I will send you (once your order has gone through) a FREE Tutorial on how to make not just this card, but the shaker card I made using the left over cut outs!  You must leave your contact details when placing your order, giving me permission to contact you otherwise I won’t be able to send you these Tutorials.  Of course you will also get an exclusive ‘Thank you’ Card made by me, for placing the order with me too!

Below is a table of all the products I used to make this card.

Enjoy and place that order today, to get the two FREE Tutorials and a lovely Thank you card! Remember to allow me to contact you when placing your order!
