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.

Below are the products I used to make this gorgeous Pivot/twist Card.

Thanks for dropping by.

High Tide Cards using Brayering and Sponging Techniques

Hi,

What happens when you put the High Tide Stamp Set together with the Brayering and Sponging Techniques?  Well, you get these amazing results! Two beautiful cards that we will be making in my Classes in April! Aren’t they just amazing! Thanks to Serenestamper for her inspiration for the sunset card. Here’s the link to her video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JdO0djZ7VUo.  The second card I created myself and had a lightbulb moment! lol I had seen a few cards using either the Wink of Stella Pen https://www2.stampinup.com/ecweb/ProductDetails.aspx?productID=141897 to create glisten on the sea or whisper white craft ink https://www2.stampinup.com/ecweb/ProductDetails.aspx?productID=101731 to create waves.  However I wanted more texture and suddenly thought, ‘Clear Embossing Powder’! https://www2.stampinup.com/ecweb/ProductDetails.aspx?productID=109130 Well as you can see it made a fantastic card with lots of texture on the sea! I love it!

Here are the two projects, the first one was inspired by Serenestamper and the second one was my creation!

I hope you agree these projects are gorgeous and I hope you will want to make them too!

Unfortunately, both my Friday and Saturday Classes are full, but you can still make these, by placing an order for £30+ which includes the High Tide Stamp Set with me.  Once your order goes through and I have been notified, I will email you the written Tutorial and a private link to the videos showing you how to make them.  The Tutorials and videos are only available to anyone placing an online order for £30+ and allowing me to contact them to be able to send the tutorials etc.

Hi,
First of all I would like to apologise for not blogging recently. I have been very poorly with the flu! Now I know alot of people say they have the flu but they just have a bad cold. Well I can tell you I had the full blown flu! It was horrendous, and wouldn’t wish it on my worst enemy! lol. Anyway chest infection nearly cleared and feeling a bit more human so thought I would do a quick blog to remind you all SAB is nearly over!

Latest Class Projects

Hi,
First of all, sorry I haven’t posted recently, well apart from reminding you of my Coffee n Card which is on this afternoon, lol. I put my back out over a week ago and it took slightly longer than normal to settle.

Still I’m back, yeye! So I thought I would update you with what we got up to in some of my classes and what’s coming up in my next Christmas Themed Workshop in August! I know I know, you are all thinking is this woman mad – Christmas in August! But I can tell you, my last Christmas Themed Workshop was a sell out and we had a great time! lol

So, I’ve done a couple of 1-2-1s this week, and they were great fun and the two ladies that came went away very happy with what they made.
Here is one of the projects, the other project I can’t show, yet! hehe, what do you think? Fancy making it, then get in touch.

As I said my first Christmas Themed Workshop was a great success and the second one which is on 21 and 22 August, is already booking, before I’ve released the projects! However, I have finally finished designing them, so here they are! If you like what you see, go to the Christmas Themed Workshop page and book and pay for your space, don’t leave it though not many spaces left.

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!
