Which means basically, for every one of these products you purchase from me at the Event, I give you a voucher for the value you have spent, and a copy of the Brand New Annual Catalogue for you to take away. You then choose from the new catalogue, other Brand New Product(s) ((to the same value as the voucher) to get ABSOLUTELY FREE! You then give me your order and voucher, I place the order and contact you when it’s arrived (usually 2-3 days later!)  Of course, buy lots on the day and you can choose lots of lovely new products from the new catalogue! What a bargain!

There will also be lots of ribbons (by the metre), 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper, (individual sheets), 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper, (individual sheets), as well as Embellishments – buttons, brads, candy dots etc.  So lots of bargains to be had, you don’t want to miss this Event!

You can also sit and make a lovely card (everything provided to make it), which means you get to stamp, punch and embellish with some of my Stampin’ Up! products.  You will also get the chance to chat to fellow crafters (some come to my classes) and take the card home with you (along with your purchases).  Your friends and family will be so jealous they missed out! lol

Then I went on a well-earned Holiday with my amazing Hubby and some friends to Mexico, to celebrate both his 60th and one of the friends 60th. Happen that whilst we were away it was also my birthday (not 60 though! hehe).  Anyways, thought I’d drop by today to remind you I have my Coffee n Card Session at No.9 Cafe, Bishops Cleeve this Thursday, 26 May 15:00-16:00.

Squash Book Tutorial

Hi,

Squash Books! Ever fancied making one and never knew how? Well, now you can, as I have made one (thanks to maymaymadeitcraft for her inspiration) and have written a Tutorial and done a video for you!

number of years squash book
I went to a Pinkies Training in Croughton recently, where fellow Pinkies Demonstrators meet up, and among other amazing activities we do throughout the day, we make Swaps showcasing a project that we have enjoyed making and swap it with our fellow Demonstrators.  My swap was a Squash Book, and I was thrilled that so many loved it and was asked if I would make a video.

 

number of years squash book open
So I thought I would share with you the Squash Book I made, along with the list of Supplies needed to make one yourselves.  Included in the Supply List is my Tutorial which you are welcome to use, but please give me credit! lol. I loved making this squash book and in fact one of my customers that comes every week for a 1-2-1 lesson, asked if I could show her how to make one so she could give it to someone special. I hope you like it too and have a go.
Click on each product to place an order and click on ‘supply list’ at the bottom of the tiled products to get access to the tutorial.

Heat Embossing, Vellum, Ribbon

Hi,

I had a great time last Thursday with a lovely lady who comes every Thursday for a 1-2-1 with me.  This week I taught her how to heat emboss on vellum and how to colour in.  The second card, she wanted to do a card using ribbon so I taught her how to stamp onto small pieces of card even when the stamp is larger than the card and how to attach the ribbon.

As you can see from the pictures below of the two cards we did, they were gorgeous and alot of techniques are shown.  I have also made a couple of videos showing how I made these cards, so click on the photo and it will take you to the video.  The video/pictures are also on the tutorial page for future reference should you wish to look at them again.

Thanks for dropping by.

Christmas Themed Workshop – Brilliant!

Hi,

Another Christmas Themed Workshop – Brilliant!  A Brilliant Christmas Themed Workshop last Friday which was so full the table was chaos! lol  What a brilliant morning, full of crafting, filled with lovely ‘crafty’ people and amazing projects (if I do say so myself hehe) to be made.

I absolutely love these Workshops, as ladies from all of my Group Classes as well as those who attend my 1-2-1’s have a chance to meet those from the groups they do not usually meet, and ‘gossip’! lol  Friday’s workshop was full-on but everyone had a brilliant time and all the projects I designed were loved.  There was so much glitter thrown around, you should have seen the room! lol.

Here are the projects that were made and underneath each one is a supply list.  If you wish to purchase any of the products, please click on the product, which will take you to my Online shop where you can place your order and have them delivered directly to your door, in time to make your own for Christmas!

Die Cutting workshop

First of all so sorry I have not been around this last month, it has been manic!  Leading up to my holiday beginning of September I have had so many classes to prepare and do.  Also I had got the dates of my holiday wrong, so a really good friend of mine, Gill agreed she would do an Open Day for me, a coffee n card and take my September Christmas Club Workshop!  She was fantastic and did them all amazing, in fact I arrived home as the Christmas Club Workshop had finished and everyone sang her praises!

Anyway, the day after I got back from my Cruise oooh lol, I held a Die Cutting Workshop at the Cotswold Craft Room, Winchcombe.  It was great fun and 5 lovely ladies attended.  I demonstrated how to use a Big Shot Die Cutting Machine to make two lovely cards.  Here are the cards we made together, a Dress Card, which I hope you agree is gorgeous and a twisted Easel Card.

Latest Class Projects

Hi,
First of all, sorry I haven’t posted recently, well apart from reminding you of my Coffee n Card which is on this afternoon, lol. I put my back out over a week ago and it took slightly longer than normal to settle.

Still I’m back, yeye! So I thought I would update you with what we got up to in some of my classes and what’s coming up in my next Christmas Themed Workshop in August! I know I know, you are all thinking is this woman mad – Christmas in August! But I can tell you, my last Christmas Themed Workshop was a sell out and we had a great time! lol

So, I’ve done a couple of 1-2-1s this week, and they were great fun and the two ladies that came went away very happy with what they made.
Here is one of the projects, the other project I can’t show, yet! hehe, what do you think? Fancy making it, then get in touch.

As I said my first Christmas Themed Workshop was a great success and the second one which is on 21 and 22 August, is already booking, before I’ve released the projects! However, I have finally finished designing them, so here they are! If you like what you see, go to the Christmas Themed Workshop page and book and pay for your space, don’t leave it though not many spaces left.

COFFEE N CARD – NEW!

Hi,

I am really excited about a Brand New Venture for my Business!  I will be starting a ‘Coffee N Card’ afternoon in a lovely cafe in Bishops Cleeve!

How exciting is that! I spoke to Gavin, one of the owners of No.9 Cafe, Bishops Cleeve last week and sorted out a date for me to start!

So if you have ever fancied making a card but felt unsure about joining a group or coming to a 1-2-1, well now you can try it out whilst having a cuppa! Just pop in on Thursday 9 July 2pm-3pm, grab a ticket from me to get a FREE Cup of coffee and sit and make yourself a lovely card to take home. Simples!  It’s gonna be great fun and it could just be something you want to do more, which is easy because I will be doing it again a fortnight later and a fortnight after that etc!

FREE handcrafted bookmark (by me) to everyone who pops in and makes a card.

So put a note in your diary, Thursday 9 July 2-3pm at No.9 cafe, Bishops Cleeve.

Brand New Catalogue, Products

Hi Everyone,

I hope you are all well and have found the time to do some crafting?  Well, I have been so so busy this month, that trying to fit in writing this has been hard, but hopefully it will be worth it and you will enjoy seeing what I have been up to in my classes.  I have used Brand New Products from the Brand New Catalogue.  In this post you will see one of the new products, the You’ve Got This Stamp Set, alongside the Mini Treat Bag Dies which proved so popular last year, it has been carried over into this Brand New Catalogue!  I hope you like the look of the projects I made and taught in my Classes this month, and fall in love with the Brand New Products as well as old faithfuls.  Order online with me through my Online shop, just click the Online Shop button above this post.

To begin with, we had our Brand New Stampin’Up! Annual Catalogue come out on 2 June, so I had great fun looking through it trying to choose which new products I fancied buying and then designing my June Classes using these gorgeous Products!

Here was the first one: The stamp set, ‘You’ve Got This’.  When I first saw it at Telford, when I went with some of my team to a Stampin’Up! training, I loved it and knew I had to have it! Do you ever feel like that, you are shown something and you sit there thinking oh my goodness gotta have that! lol

You’ve Got This Stamp Set, Clear Mount 139575

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It is an amazing Stamp Set so versatile and my Classes loved it. Here’s the Projects I taught at my Monthly Classes as well as a 1-2-1.

There are so many new products as well as alot of products that have proven so popular that they have been carried over, I am sure you would love a copy of the Brand New Catalogue for yourselves to sit back, relax with a lovely cuppa and make a long wish list.
Why not hold a party, that way you get to craft with friends, play with the new products and may be you get to choose some of these gorgeous New Products Free for yourself (dependent on Sales at your party). Want to know more please get in touch.
Thanks for dropping by, please come back soon as I would love to show you the cards we made in a couple of 1-2-1 classes I did last week.
