Coffee n Card Afternoon

Had a lovely afternoon last Thursday at No.9 Cafe, Bishops Cleeve when I held my first Coffee n Card session.

A couple of lovely ladies sat and chatted, enjoyed a drink and made a lovely card.  One of them kindly took some pictures for me and here’s me holding up the card we made.  The other lady didn’t fancy her picture being taken, so here’s her ‘hands’ lol punching out a butterfly!

As the afternoon continued, I spoke to other customers at the No.9 Cafe, Bishops Cleeve, as they asked what we were doing. They were very interested and so I look forward to seeing them next time.

My next Coffee n Card Afternoon is Thursday 23rd July 2-3pm, so put the date and time in your diary and pop along. There will be a choice of two projects, either a lovely card using a lovely Stamp Set;  Sprinkles of Life, or a Curvy Keepsake box made into a lovely ‘critter’. Pop back here next week when I will be revealing the two projects for you to choose from! For now here’s a few projects I have made in the past with both the Sprinkles of Life stamp set and the Curvy Keepsake Thinlits Dies just to ‘wet’ your appetite.

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.

It’s easy too, just sign up with me today and you could have your Starter Kit with you within a week to start playing and expanding your knowledge of cardmaking. For just a one-off payment of £99 you get to choose £130 worth of Stampin’Up! products. If you sign up before 30 June 2015 you also get to choose TWO STAMP SETS ABSOLUTELY FREE! That’s on top of the £130 worth of products for just £99!
This is an amazing offer, in fact it’s never been offered before and you can choose ANY of the amazing stamp sets Stampin’Up! sell. Remember too you can’t buy Stampin’Up! products anywhere else.

Once you have signed up and joined Stampin’Up! and become an Independent Hobby Demonstrator, every time you purchase products you get 20% discount! Spend £150+ and you get Stampin’ Rewards to use to get more products FREE! As well as that you can join me and my team at our meetings where we get to craft and chat and have fun. You could come to any Stampin’Up! events and the biggest in our Calendar is the OnStage Live in Brussels in November! All Demonstrators are welcome, and it’s such fun you will want to go!

OnStage Live in Brussels

Another way of being a Demonstrator is by running your own Business and if that’s what you fancy doing, by signing up with me, I will help and support you through the early days of getting started as a Demonstrator and as your business grows. Being a Career Demonstrator means you can earn money whilst building your business but it’s still fun! There is absolutely no pressure from Stampin’Up! or me lol; you do as much or as little as you like.

Just like joining as a Hobby Demonstrator, for £99 you choose £130 worth of Stampin’Up! products. If you sign up before 30 June 2015 you also get to choose TWO STAMP SETS ABSOLUTELY FREE! That’s on top of the £130 worth of products for just £99! Again you get 20% discount on any Demonstrator Orders but as a Career Demonstrator, orders you get from Customers gives you Commission which you gets paid into your bank! Simples! lol
Again just like Hobby Demonstrators you can join me and fellow Demonstrators, whether Hobby or Career, at any Stampin’Up! Event as well as any I put on.  You will also become part of ‘The Pinkies’, an amazing bunch of fellow Demonstrators, who all support one another and we have regular meet ups and events that you will be welcome to come to.

Perks of being an Independent Demonstrator

So why not contact me today, and become part of my Team, continuing to enjoy cardmaking, getting discounts and possibly even turning it into a business! That’s what great about Stampin’Up! you don’t even have to decide whether you want to be a Hobby Demonstrator or run a business when you sign up. Just sign up, order your Starter Kit AND those TWO FREE Stamp sets (if you sign up before 30 June 2015) and have FUN!

Don’t miss out on the amazing offer, there’s only 5 days left!
Thanks

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.

Money Wallets & Product-based Classes

Hi everyone,

I want to talk to you today about my Product-based Classes and the Money Wallets I taught in a 1-2-1 I had today. I am busy trying to get my website with all the information I can as quickly as I can.  Thank you for you patience, it is still a work in progress, but hopefully you have enjoyed what you have seen so far. If you go to my Product-based Classes Page (under Classes) you will see the Timetable for the Brand New Classes starting in July. You will also see the projects you will be making in the July classes using the Stamp Set you will receive at the Class to take home with you. The Papillon Potpourri Stamp Set we will be using is included in the Class price, which means you can produce more gorgeous cards with your own stamp set when you get home all inspired after the class.

The following month, August will be using Build a Birthday Stamp Set! As it is one of the Brand New Stamp Sets, I have not yet bought mine so have not made the projects we will be making in the classes but you can see samples of projects from the Brand New Catalogue – out today!

So please go check out the Product-based Classes page and book those places soon as spaces are limited!

I had a lovely 1-2-1 class this morning with a lovely lady at her home.  She wanted to make a couple of Money Wallets so I made one as a sample using the Brand New In-Color Cardstock, marker pens, along with the absolutely gorgeous Bohemium DSP!  I also used one of my favourite Stamp sets from Last Year ‘In This Together’, although she chose to put something else on.

So here is the wallet I made (I can’t show you hers, lol but hope they like them).
