Coffee N Card – Father’s Day/Male Birthday

Hi!

You may be wondering where I’ve been recently? Well first of all I was poorly with the Flu, yep actual flu lol which developed to a chest infection. 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.

Here are the projects you can choose from to make and take home to your dad, brother, uncle, well any male relative/friend! lol

Aren’t they amazing! I love them and loved making them.  I made them using SU products, some of which are retiring and some are carrying over into our new Catalogue, that comes out 1 June.  So why not pop along on Thursday to make one of these gorgeous cards? If you can’t make it but would love to make them, either book a 1-2-1 with me, or order the products online through my online shop.  The list of products I used is below (remember some of the products are retiring, so if you want them you best be quick!).

Sale-a-bration is Over, my Team is awesome!

Well that’s Sale-a-bration over for another year! It has been such fun showcasing all the wonderful FREE products my customers and Class members had the chance to get.

Stampin’Up! always do a challenge for us Demonstrators during SAB and this year was no exception.  However, I decided to give my Team a challenge from me, just to ‘spice’ things up a bit! lol  Well they rose to the challenge and I am so impressed with them.

First of all any of my Downliners that had sales of £250+ during SAB I rewarded them with a £15 voucher to spend on SU Products through me. I was chuffed to bit that Kim Renn, Jilly Rickards, Karen Nash and Jane Drake all achieved this.

For any of my Downliners that Recruited during SAB and, that new recruit spent £75+ I rewarded them with a £25 voucher to spend on SU Products through me.  Well, 2 amazing Downliners, Jilly Rickards and Karen Nash both achieved this!  How amazing is that, well done ladies!

Finally for the Downliner that got the Highest Sales during SAB I made a lovely Photo Framed Gift, which I hope she will put on her wall to inspire her.  She also got a certificate and will spend a half day crafting with me. Huge congratulations Karen, who managed sales of £1322.54 (1468.47 CSV)!  That is truly an amazing amount of sales and I am so proud of her.

For myself, I recruited 5 new Downliners and I hope they will be inspired by the rest of the Team through the coming months and will gain in confidence and enjoy their time as Demonstrators and have fun being part of my Team.

If you fancy joining me and my Team you can, just click on the ‘Join Me’ button at the top of this website, or get in touch with me direct to discuss it.  I am always available if any of my Team need advice or just a bit of a confidence boost, inspiration, whether they are Hobby Demonstrators or running their own businesses and teams of their own.  I take my job of mentoring very seriously and I love watching everyone in my Team grow.

I presented my amazing Downliners with their certificates/gift at our team meeting on Friday 8 April.  I also gave everyone at our Team meeting their Team Pin and a welcome Card. Thanks to my lovely hubby Mike, who made the Pins for me!

I am off to Onstage Local in a weeks’ time, and some of my Team are coming with me which is so exciting!  When I get back I will post what we got up to and show you all the FREEBIES we got!

Thanks for dropping by!

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.

Click on supply List to access the Tutorial and to access the link to the Youtube video.

 Thanks and look forward to seeing your squash books.

That’s why I thought my Coffee n Card this Thursday (25 February 15:00-16:00) at No.9 Cafe, Bishops Cleeve should involve making a lovely Mother’s Day card and gift!

Below are the list of supplies I have used for both of the projects. Just click on any of the products below and you will be taken to my Online shop where you can purchase the products and have them sent directly to your home.

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?

Holly at coffee n card

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!

If you want to make a card just like Holly why not join me at my next Coffee n Card which will be Thursday 25th February 3pm-4pm. Get in touch to find out more.

It’s My Party Suite

Hi,

I hope you enjoyed my cards I showed in our recent Pinkies Blog hop, using ‘It’s My Party’ Suite from Stampin’Up!  This suite is amazing and I LOVE IT! The stamp set has so many lovely stamps including lovely sentiments, everything you need to make gorgeous cards, whether for younger children or adults. There is also gorgeous Designer Speciality Paper (DSP) which is 12″ x 12″ so plenty to make lots of cards, boxes and gift wrapping.  Then there is the cute little Party Punch Pack which when you see them you will fall in love with them.  The great thing about them is that the stamped image is slightly bigger than the punch so when you punch them out there is no white area surrounding it – so much more realistic.

Here’s the first card I did in my blog hop participation, a Slider Card.

slider card pulled up slider card inside slider front

I taught this in two of my classes this weekend and everyone thought it was amazing. They said that even though it took concentration to make lol they really enjoyed it and would be making more.  This will be easier for them as I have made a video and a written tutorial for them lol.  You too can have access to the video and a copy of the written tutorial by placing a £45+ order with me by clicking on the products from the listing below. As soon as it goes through I will email you the video link and tutorial. Remember don’t tick ‘NO contact’ when placing your order, as I won’t be able to access your details so won’t be able to send the tutorial or video link to you.  Don’t forgot also for every £45 you spend between 5 January and 31 March which is Saleabration time, you can choose a FREE Product from the Saleabration (SAB) Catalogue. There’s stamp set, gorgeous DSP, embossed vellum and Project Life Cards.

Here are the products I used to make this gorgeous slider card.

We didn’t have time to make the other card, so we will make that one in next months class. Here it is though along with the products I used to make it. Again click on the products below to order from my online shop and if the order is £45+ you not only get to choose a FREE SAB product, but I will email you (once the order has gone through) a link to the video and a written tutorial.
