Christmas Quilt – What a Fun Afternoon!

Christmas Quilt – well I have had so much fun this afternoon with my friend Gill, playing with the New Christmas Quilt Stamp Set, matching Dies and Designer Series Paper!

When I first saw this suite I thought mmmmm it’s ok, but Oh my Gosh, it’s not mmmmmm – it’s AMAZING!!!!!  You’ve just gotta get your hands on it, the papers are amazing, they not only have lovely paper patterns for backgrounds, but they even have papers that can be cut out exactly with the Quilt Builder Framelit Dies!  This suite is NOT JUST for Quilters! It’s not even JUST FOR CHRISTMAS! Just take a look at the three cards we made this afternoon!

See what I mean?  We have a birthday one and two Christmas ones! All are gorgeous and so easy to make with the Quilted Christmas Suite.  Did you notice the gorgeous stitched felt Holly leaves and berries? How adorable are they? I love them and they are so well made!

Thanks to Alejandra Gomez for her inspiration.

For all the products I’ve used and everything else that is in the Quilted Christmas Suite check out the new Seasonal Catalogue and go to my Online shop to buy them! You won’t be disappointed!

Change as good as a rest!

That’s what people say ‘Change is as good as a rest!’  Well I didn’t want to rest on my laurels but wanted to change the way I did things with my business.  So I’ve taken the very brave (some of you may say fool hardy hehe) decision to stop running my classes!

I had my last class just over a week ago and whilst it was sad, I know I will keep in touch with these lovely ladies and perhaps we will craft together in the future.

This is the card we made:  They had a choice of either having the cute doggy or the pile of pressies being pulled up the card!  Each have a hidden christmas sentiment that gets revealed as they are pulled up.  Great Fun and everyone loved making it!

If you want to make one of these cards here’s the products I used, just click on each item to place and order with me on my online shop. (remember to use September’s Hostess Code if your order is less than £150).  Use the Hostess Code and get a gift just from me sent directly to you by me to thank you. (remember I need your details).

 

Now I thought I would give you a heads up on just one of the new things I will be doing in my new venture!  I am so excited and I really hope you will be too and will continue to support me and join me in my new venture!

Firstly, I will be doing a ‘Product Share’ from the New Seasonal Catalogue!  What does this mean you ask?  Well in a nutshell, I choose a Suite of Products from the New Seasonal Catalogue, put a sample of the products from this suite (not including Stamp Set, dies or punches) together, place them in a strong plastic box (which you get to keep) and post it directly out to you ready for you to use to make your own gorgeous projects! How cool is that!   Examples of the types of products you will get:-  6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper, Cardstock, Embellishments, Ribbon, things like that, depending which suite I choose.

At the moment this is in the planning stage, but I would love to hear from you if you would be interested in taking part in this Product Share.  I plan to choose a different suite every month, so you get the chance to have lots of products at a fraction of the cost!  This will also help you try many of the lovely products before purchasing a full pack of say Designer Series Paper or gorgeous Embellishments.  It is very good value and a great way to get your hands on lots of products.

The first Product Share will go live Monday 2 October!

Email me asap if you would like more information, but drop back next week for the details of the first Product Share and more information about other things I will be doing in my new venture!

May Hostess Code and this months class

Hi,

Yes I know I’m running a little late with issuing the May Hostess Code! lol  What can I say, but I’ve been so busy playing with some of the amazing pre-order us lucky Demonstrators get to order before the new Catalogue is released in June!  You are going to be amazed at how fantastic this new Annual Catalogue is! So many beautiful new stamp sets, all NEW Designer Series Papers which are to die for! On top of that there’s the new ribbons, new embellishments – oh and of course this year we have 5 yes 5 brand new In-Colors!  You have got to see them! I even bought a new dress which has matching flower colours to the new Lemon/lime Twist! lol

So why not place an order with me today from the retiring Catalogues to ensure you get a copy of the Brand New Catalogue when it’s released on 1 June! I will personally post one to you along with a bespoke card showcasing some of the gorgeous DSP and one of the New In-colors, along with a very useful bookmark again showing all the new In-colors, so you can mark your favourite page of stamps etc!  Remember to use the New Hostess Code (find it on my right side bar) and you will also receive a FREE gift from me (may even be some of the new Ribbon or embellishments!).

This months class is a small affair as alot of people are away or busy, so I have decided to make a more technical card – A Pivot Twist Card!  I made one of these months ago before they became the latest trend, but because it can take longer than some of my cards to make in a class, I have not been able to teach this one.

However as I say I only have one class of four coming on Saturday, so I thought now is a great opportunity to showcase the card!  Thanks goes to both  Tuppence coloured (here’s a link to her blog Tuppence Coloured) for her inspiration as well as Frances Martin (here’s a link to her Frances Martin) for help with making the pivot mechanism easier to teach).  I have written a tutorial and made a gorgeous card which I am looking forward to teaching tomorrow.

If you would like to get your hands on the tutorial so you can make this on-trend and amazing Pivot twist Card, then place an order (£20+) with me via my online shop using the new Hostess Code (M4S6FNBU).  As soon as I have received confirmation of your order, I will email you your Tutorial.  If you would like a Copy of the Brand New Catalogue, once you have placed your order, email me with your full details, including your postal address and I will post one out to you as soon as they are available.

I am also sorting out all the gorgeous new Ribbon and Dsp ready for you to get your hands on a Share of them all.  So if you fancy having a share of them, please email me with your details so I can let you know when they are ready to purchase.  Check back here in the next couple of weeks for more details.

Thank You Card

Hi,

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!

Mother’s Day Card/Gift

Hi,

It’s been a while since I last posted, sorry, but have been soooo busy, not only with classes etc, but have just become a Nanna, so of course that takes priority!
