Hallow Country Fair

It was my first time at Hallow Country fair and it was a lovely day.  There was a falconry display (I must admit to feeling a little uncomfortable when they came swooping down and hid my lunch just in case!), some belly dancing, morris dancers and a tug of war competition!  The weather was glorious and I got to meet lots of lovely people!

Here are a few pictures of the stand - though I say so myself, I do think it looked lovely!

There was a lot of interest in my pinned pictures - so I guess a class will be on its way.  I am at a craft fair in St Johns on Saturday - so hopefully I will get a good response then too!

Crafty Ducks are go!

It's been nearly two years since I moved to Worcester (how fast has that gone!) and after a number of false starts I am taking a leap of faith!

I am relaunching my blog and planning classes to start in September!  So why not join me for a taster session to celebrate the fabulous new catalogue in July.  Have a look at my classes for more details of what you can expect - apart from coffee, cake and fun of course!

I will be at the Hallow Country Fair tomorrow so I have been busy getting ready for that - look out for photos in the near future!  I have been busy creating some 3D  and home decor items that will ultimately find themselves a place in my home!

SO wish me luck - and keep checking back for my latest news and makes!

Lets get CRAFTING! x

Friendly Wishes Part 2!

SO - have you been wondering what the card inside the bag looked like?  Well your wait is over!

So here you have it - we used the pen to marker technique to colour the stamp for the front of the card.  It's such a "full" stamp that the card doesn't need much else - so just a couple of th elittle flowers to help coordinate the bag and card - a stamped message inside and the card was complete.

Who would you send this card to?  I can think of a few people who deserve to receive it!

Friendly Wishes

You may have noticed that the last post had a little flower in the corner - but I didn't say where it had come from.  The reason for that was that I couldn't remember!  It wasn't quite a senior moment - but I needed to double check before I posted!

Anyway - we used that stamp set to make this lovely little set at training.

Friendly Greetings
This is a lovely alternative to presenting a card in an envelope.  We used one of the new glassine bags and stamped the lovely little flower over the bag to link it in with the card.  A couple of quick banners made with the triple banner punch, a punched decoration and voila!  It's held together by the little peg.  to be honest I was really surprised by these pegs.  I've seen them around for a few years and assumed that the stampin up ones would be like those.  I should have known better!  They are slightly bigger and less fiddly to use - so I can see them coming into their own to help display cards at Christmas - as well as for making cards!

Fancy seeing what's in the bag?  Then pop by in a couple of days!

Watercolour Thank You

Cucumber Crush!

SO this is one of the cards that we made at training using one of the new 2015-17 in-colours.  It was the first time that I had used the new lace - and I was amazed at how soft and malleable it was.  Just like my swap - we used the envelope paper as a background - it really does represent fabulous value!

Do you like the little flower - it's really sweet and looked lovely with a punched shape from the petite petals punch.  This is a really easy and quick card to duplicate - so why not give it a go!

Sea Street

Telford 2014

Did you notice that Sea Street is one of the sets on offer this week?  It's such a cute set!  When it first launched my good friend Fiona was asked to prepare a display using the stamps for the UK demonstrators attending the Stampin Up Regional Event at Telford.  This is what she came up with - aren't they fab?!!
