Onstage is nearly here!

Hi,

First an update on my lovely hubby, Mike.  Some of you will have heard, my darling hubby, Mike, had a stroke on 12 March, which was both frightening and shocking!  Luckily it was a minor stroke, but it has affected his left side, in particular his arm, but also his speech.  Slowly over the last couple of weeks he has made great progress and is now able to speak properly most of the time.  It is going to be a slow process of rehabilitation, but all the Consultants are confident that he will make a full recovery.

Hence, I have had to make a decision about OnStage and that is that I will not be able to attend this weekend.  OnStage is such a fantastic part of Stampin’Up! and being a Demonstrator it is for most of us, the highlight of the Year!  We get the chance to meet fellow Demonstrators from all over Europe and have the chance to congratulate all those who have achieved milestones within Stampin’Up!

I am pleased to say that 4 of my Direct Downliners and 3 of my second Level Downliners will be going to OnStage and I know they will have a fantastic time!

I had made a card for each of them to give out at OnStage, but as I am unable to go, I gave them it along with a gift from me early.  Here are the cards:

I think they are amazing and it will be a lovely momento of the time they spent at OnStage.  Below are the products I used to make the cards.  I am sure you can think of lots of ways to use the Apron Die, even to make little boxes!  The Die set also comes with BBQ tools, so you could make a lovely male birthday card with that!

Remember to use the Hostess Code S4SGSTEQ for April on your orders and if it’s £20+ you will get a FREE gift just from me as a thank you for placing an order with me.   To see how many of you actually read this post all the way to the bottom,  lol, places an order with me for £30+ AND leaves the Word ‘INSPIRE’ in a comment after this post, will get an extra FREE gift this month.  Don’t miss out!

Thanks

Brayering Technique – February Classes

Brayering technique went down really well at my February Classes! Everyone absolutely loved it! Orders for the Sponge Brayers flooded in, so be prepared Stampin’Up! hehe

What am I talking about you ask? Well brayering is where you take a sponge brayer and some ink pads and roll the sponge brayer which you have inked up with your chosen coloured ink, and roll it over a piece of  shimmery white cardstock to create some magic!  Still not clear? hehe well why not go to my youtube video tutorial page and click on the ‘Sponge Brayering Technique Video’.

If you fall in love with the brayering technique as much as my lovely ladies that do ‘class’ lol and would love to make the gorgeous card illustrated in the video, then why not order the products (see post Brayering February Class post ) and once the order goes through I will email you the tutorial to make the gorgeous card.  Better still if you live locally, why not join me for a 1-2-1.

Here are the two cards we made this month in my February Classes – both using the brayering technique!

Great Coffee n Card Session Today

Hi,

Great Coffee n Card session today at the No.9 Cafe, Bishops Cleeve.  Daphne came as usual which is always a delight, she is such a lovely lady. Then a lady and her daughter, Holly who had been in the Cafe a fortnight ago when I was last doing my coffee n card came in and joined me.

I was blown away with how amazing Holly was at stamping, her card was beautiful and her technique of stamping for someone so young, was awesome! Well, look for yourself, here’s her finished card – great isn’t it?

Here’s the one her mum did (lol she didn’t want to show her face). A great card too I think you will all agree!
