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!

Ready For Christmas!

Ready for Christmas! What! I hear you say! I’ve only just got back from my Cruise and have had to put my Christmas Cardmaking Hat on for my LAST Monthly Class this weekend!  I thought I would go out with a bang and have spent all day today creating a most amazing Card! Yes, I know it’s Christmas themed, but once you’ve learnt the technique you can use it for any type of Card – birthday, Anniversary, Wedding, the list is endless! lol

So here is the Card we will be making this weekend. I’ve called it a ‘Pulley Card’, as you pull on a tab and the little dog gets pulled up into the night sky to reveal a very apt saying as it goes!

Isn’t it fun?  It took a lot of playing around and I am exhausted but so chuffed with it! I know one fellow Demonstrator who will love the little doggy! lol

Drop back next week when I will put a table of products used to make this beautiful card.

Let me know what you think, by leaving a comment.

Celebrations are nearly over!

Well, the Celebrations are nearly over for another year but I thought you might like to see some of the cards I made for my loved ones as well as my customers and Team members.  Also included are  Commission Cards and birthday cards!  I have been sooooo busy this month, never thought I was going to get it all completed in time for Christmas!  I was making the family cards on Christmas Eve!!!! lol

Here’s the family ones first:

The first one I used ‘Shooting Stars’ stamp set and matching die and was for my hubby.  The next one used Jolly Friends and again a die from the sliding star framelits, for my Son.  My daughter and hubby got the Stocking one which is supposed to resemble a bannister with the stockings hanging from it (don’t think they realised that lol).  The last one and I must admit the most special was for our first grandchild for her 1st Christmas! A card in a box using Snow Place stamp set and matching dies (I’ve blurred out the baby pictures that are on the two side panels).  These were such fun to make, and when you have read the blog entry, you will realise why I was making these on Christmas Eve! lol

The next set of cards were ones I made for my Team and Customers as a thank you for their support over the last year.  I also made them all a small gift to show my appreciation:

The first card was for my Team members and I used the gorgeous Father Christmas Stamp set, absolutely adorable with so much detail. I loved using this stamp without colouring it in.  The second picture is the box I created holding all the gifts I made for my team members.  This time, having made the box using the Gift Box punch board, I stamped all the ‘mice’ images onto whisper white cs and coloured them in using the BRAND NEW Watercolour Pencils that are in the brand new Seasonal Catalogue! These will be available from my from 6 January, so if you want a copy of the catalogue please get in touch!  Once I had coloured the images in, I used an aquapainter to make it look watercoloured. Gorgeous and so much fun!

The third picture is of the card I made for my customers, a shaker card, using Mica Flakes and the shake and celebrate stamp set and matching dies.  You can even make the cut out resemble Christmas Tree, which I did but oops forgot to take a photo!  Take my word for it, lol it’s impressive! lol.  The beautiful lumiere jar was the gift I made for my customers and they loved them!  I used peaceful pines stamp set and matching dies on vellum, stuck it round the outside of the jar, washi tape around the lid along with dazzling diamond glimmer paper to cover top of lid with a beautiful red glimmer bow.  Inside is a battery operated tea light that changes colours and believe me when all your lights are turned down or off, it glows and shines beautifully!  In fact, I was asked how I had made it as one of my ladies wants to make some for herself!

Now for some Commission Cards, cards for friends and family too that I have made this month.  Told you it’s been a really busy month! lol

The first three cards were all Commissions.  The lovely gentleman asked for 9 Christmas cards and I’m not keen on making multiples of the same card, as you may have gathered lol, so these were just some and all different, oops again forgot to take photos of others lol, but they were all different.  He was thrilled with them.  I used merry tags dies and merriest wishes stamp set for the first three cards.  Then there’s a Gift Card holder, which, in fact I also made in my last Coffee n Card and made more for my own family.  The Santa coat card, I Cased from I think it may have been Gill Arnold, but sorry I can not be sure.

Next I made this amazing framed xmas scene for a friend of mine, as a decoration!  You see, she doesn’t put decorations up in her house, lol so I made this and now she has at least one ‘decoration’ to put up every year! lol.  As you can see I used lots of different stamp sets and dies, see if you can name them all! lol  The motorbike birthday card was for my cousin, unfortunately I was sooo caught up with xmas cards etc, I forgot to make it in time, so I made it a ‘belated’ one instead hehe.  Don’t think he minded! lol  I used Born to Ride stamp set and the card is a ‘z’ fold card, so much fun I have made lots using this technique and will be teaching it in my first class in January.

I used another z fold card to make this piggy card for a friends hubby (the same friend who doesn’t do xmas decorations hehe).  Her hubby is mad about pigs so I had to make a piggy one! lol  I used Playful pals to make the big pig and farmyard babies for little piggies.  As you can see the z fold technique is great for this type of card.  Notice yet another z fold card? Yep this time the crab at sea for brother in law! lol  The card in a box was the other commission card the gentleman asked me to make for his granddaughter. So elegant isn’t it, and very girly.  The final card is a chest of drawers with jumpers hanging out for a friends son who is mad about jumpers! lol.

Well I think that is about it for now.  Christmas is over and now I am back at it, getting ready for the biggest event of the Stampin’Up! Calendar, Saleabration!

So please check back very soon to see what’s on offer, what my new Classes are going to be making and if you fancy a party, do I have a deal for you!!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!
