Open House Fun!

Hi Everyone

It's been a little while since I last posted - it's been a busy few weeks of classes and my open house and today I helped my friend Pip with her mini launch party.  Lots of fun and crafting!  Firstly I'd like to thank everyone who has been along to one of these days - thank you - it's been a real pleasure to craft with you all.

I guess I better show you some cards now!

 Opps!  Hope you don't get neck strain trying to look at these cards!  I cas'd the idea from the lovely Jenny Moors - I loved the simplicity of the colours - they just seemed so fresh and clean.  I used the fabuous Twitterpated papers and simply stamped in the matching colours. The mixed bunch stamp set and blossom punch just lend themselves to this style of card.

I'll be psoting details of some special mixed paper and card packs which I am offering over the next few days along with the details of the charity event that Pip and I are running on August 11th to raise money for the Breasy Cancer Campaign.  If you fancy an afternoon or morning of crafty fun with a few friends - keep your eyes out and book your tickets.  They are on sale NOW priced at £7.50 with a minimum of £5 from each ticket going to the charity.

Lots to tell!

Wow - what a busy few weeks it has been and what a lot of news I have for you.  If you haven't already spotted the new posts on the left - check out the new summer mini catalogue which launched on 1st May.  It is jam packed with lots of lovely new products - I have so many favourites!  At last we have the new scoring tool which is just so versatile - not only can you score every 1/8th Inch, but there is a metric plate and also a diagaonal plate.  Which is so new it isn't even in the catalogue!

We had a fantastic demonstration of how to use this at our recent training day in Reading and I can't wait  to get my hands on it!  Talking of training - as usual many of the demonstrators make card samples to swap with others - a great way to get new ideas or see stamp stes that we don't own.  I was running very short of time and so am very greatful for the help that my friend Emma gave me to make this little lot!  It's a shame we don't have smellovision - as we used the new cherry scented embossing powder - and it is really quite effective!

I've also used the new embossing edgelits and textured embossing folders to create the canopy for my "Tea Shoppe".  I will show you more from the new ctalogue over the coming weeks.

 Also I have updated my class list - please check out the charity fund raiser details - my friend Pip and I have set a target of £500 that we would like to raise for Breast Cancer Campaign.  We'd love to see you there - having fun and eating cake - all in a good cause!

Finally a word of warning - the classes on 7th June and 12th July (Men's cards and stamp a stack) only have one or two places still available.  So don't leave it too late to book!
