Sneaky Peeky!

I'm sorry I've been so rubbish - I have tried to have a few days off over Christmas but have had 2 classes, lots of lovely crafty visitors and have been playing with my new stash - so haven't had time to photograph, edit and post piccies...

So here are a couple of new things I want to share!

The first is a stamp I fell in love with as soon as I saw the new catalogue - I couldn't keep it off my wish list and it was the first stamp I mounted and used!

He's called Baby Bumblebee and was a perfect stamp for my Blendabilities - though you could colour him with straight forward markers.

Can you resist him? Nah - can't be done - he's too cute!

Now most of you know I can't resist punches and I had to have this little Bow Builder punch... I can't wait to decorate some little boxes and gifts... I have valentines day in my sights! Especially when you consider the Confetti Heart Border punch - but I'm saving that for another day!

I'm hoping to post some more over the next week - but I'll leave you with those treats for now! The catalogue goes live on the 6th of January - and Saleabration starts then too! Eeek.

Lots of people have visited today - probably because Sunday has previously been my posting day - the truth is I have been playing with all my new stuff from the Spring Summer catalogue and Saleabration... and have hundreds of pics to show you...

SO I will post tomorrow night! PROMISE!

Happy Christmas!

Today I'm sharing my last Christmas card of the year - the good news is the Wondrous Wreath stamp set and framelits are carrying over...

I have been playing with some of my new products from the NEW Saleabration and Spring/Summer seasonal brochures - and will have those available from Tuesday!

I would like to wish all my followers and customers a Happy Christmas and I hope you and your families have a relaxing time over the holiday!

The Autumn/Winter catalogue finishes on the 5th of January so if you have any bits you would like before everything retires... you can shop using the button on the right or e-mail me the details.

I heat embossed the bow with Cherry Cobbler embossing powder.

The Joy is cut using one of the dies and is cut from the gold foil sheets.

Depending how busy I am over the next few days (I'm looking chokka at the moment!) I may get a chance to photograph the new cards I've made and post a couple.

Nearly Here!

I'm so excited that it's nearly Christmas! Where has the year gone? The great news is that for the first time I have truly preserved some memories using the Project Life products... rather than just downloading all the pictures to the PC never to be seen again!

I've been finishing up some little bits and pieces... including all the wrapping! Goodness it gives me backache!

I made a little keepsake box for each and every lady I work with - 20 in total. I LOVE the Curvy Keepsake Die!

I'm afraid the pics aren't great as I was in a bit of a rush! I cut out the Curvy Keepsake boxes and I stamped the Very Vanilla card stock in gold with the I Love Lace background stamp.

I cut out the corresponding tags and heat embossed them in gold too with the Bright & Beautiful small star.

I popped a little scented tealight in each one, decorated with gold Washi Tape and then closed them up and tied on the tags with a little Gold Bakers Twine.

I think they're really cute and hope everyone will like them. The men are each getting one of the Traveler desk calendars I posted a short while back.

I am placing a final order on the 16th of December which may arrive for Christmas! So if there's anything you would like to add - please send it to me tomorrow.

No More - I can't take it!

...the excitement that is! New catalogue and Sale-A-Bration coming soon - but if you want anything for Christmas you need to order now. Last shipping date is 15th December - But I would give it a bit more if you can!

So as a demonstrator I get to see sneak peeks of the new seasonal catalogue and the Sale-a-Bration leaflet - and Oh My! I am so in trouble with my bank manager - but the products are simply amazing. I can't wait to share!

Yesterday I was at a Dabble Day - the opportunity to try 5 new crafts... I had 9 lovely ladies join me at my table and they had great fun. They were so engrossed!

I also showed some items I made recently and this one got a lot of attention...

It's a little votive for a battery operated tea light... doesn't look much? Check it out with the candle inside!

I heat embossed an image from the Hopeful Thoughts set on Vellum, cut the apertures with the Labels Framelits, used the Mosaic and Label Bracket punches.

The butterflies are stamped from Papillon Potpourri, punched using the Bitty Butterfly, coloured with Blendabilities and coated with Crystal Effects...

In fact I have been asked to run a workshop for a group of ladies to make this. I'm really looking forward to it!

If you would like to come to a class - or want me to hold a workshop in your home for you and some friends - please get in touch! Don't forget you can also host a party and you will get hostess credits from your party sales to get free products!
