Well Christmas is almost over for another year!
Time to think about the New Year and to start preparing for classes and Stampin' Up promotions.
The January classes are on Monday 9th January at the Windmill and Tuesday 10th at the Wick Hall. We will be making a desk calender and matching fridge note holder. Don't forget to let me know if you will be attending so that there will be a kit for you.
From the 4th January to 30th April there is a new Spring mini catalogue with lots of lovely new products for you to play with, including an exclusive line of chains, charms and baubles to create your own unique jewellery.
And from 24th January to 31st March its Sale-a-bration time, when for every £45 you spend you will be able to choose exclusive free products.

New 5 for £6 class

Now that Christmas preparations are well under way I have been able to put my mind to new mini card class designs. Here is a set that I have put together using the Flirtatious designer paper.
If you cant make the classes at the Wick Hall or the Windmill why not book a mini class or party at your home. Don't forget that as the hostess you would get your class free.

Not Long now!

Just under a month to go and I havent really scratched the surface yet on the Christmas present front! Off to Chichester tomorrow with the kids for a Christmas shopping trip so hopefully I will get a few more bits sorted.

On that note dont forget to get your orders in time for Christmas!

I am offering a Christmas Wish List Service where I will provide a list for you to fill in and distribute to your family and friends who can then contact me to select your presents! I will gift wrap all presents for FREE. Also gift vouchers available if you have a crafty person who you are not sure what to get.

Also what about the problem of spending all that money you get for Christmas! How about holding a party for family and friends in the New Year and buying all those things that you have been drooling over in the catalogue! An added bonus for January is "Sale a bration" time when free products will be available on all purchases over £45. So contact me to arrange a date.

There will be gift ideas, special offers, Christmas novelties, refreshments and a raffle in aid of St Barnabas Hospicce. The arrangements that Michelle does for the raffle are usually out of this world and well worth winning! I will be there too helping and flogging Christmas cards and some of the labels I made last week.

Post operative!

As I am still feeling a little post operative following minor surgery last week, my creative juices haven't really been running.
However I have made these little gift tags which I have been able to pick up and put down when I have felt like it.
It has also been a great way to use up some scraps from the overflowing "scrap box".
I have used Quickutz dies, which work perfectly on my Big Shot. Also thank heavens for the sticker maker too as it save a lot of intricate glueing, which I just don't have the patience for at the mo!

Sunday, 6 November 2011

Change of Plan!

Unfortunately the afternoon class on Saturday 26th November has been postponed.

However the Big Shot draw coffee morning is still taking place, but will be bigger and better!

Helen and I have thought it would a great idea to make it a Second Hand craft Sale, for you earn a few pennies for some new stash (hopefully from Stampin' Up!), from your old/unused crafting stuff or come and grab a bargain.

If you would like to have a table for £4 and get rid of some of your surplus stash
then please do not hesitate to contact me and I can save you a table. If not then just come and spend!!

Dont forget it is not only a Big Shot in the raffle, there is a 2nd prize of a stamp set and a 3rd prize of a £5 gift voucher. There will be Stampin' Up! products, gift vouchers and stocking fillers for sale. A make and take and refreshments will also be available.

Come along and dont forget to bring a friend and get your orders in for Christmas. Like last time there will be a 10% discount for any orders placed on the day.

I would like to thank all those that came along to the Shopping Event last week. We raised £150 for the Scout group.

New Stampers Group

Just to let those of you who are thinking about joining our new Stampers Group there are still a couple of places left.

Remember its a great way to increase your stash slowly over a few months and also to receive the hostess benefits without holding a party. There are some great hostess only stamp sets and paper. You would be able to buy any of them, unlike previous years when you would have been limited by the amount of sales. Take a look at the catalogue if you don't believe me, as I think they are the best yet.

Busy Busy Busy

Well Helen and I are having a busy week, hence the lack of postings - sorry!
On Monday we were at the Windmill making the little Top Note box and tags and last night we were at Wick Hall making these lovely little Christmas Cards. Once again a great bunch of girls and thanks for bringing the chocolates Pauline!
And to finish the week off we are at Kim's doing the Merry Christmas box and card set.

Catalogue Launch Day

Well what a fab morning we had yesterday at our Stampin Up catalogue launch party.
Thank you to all those ladies and one gentlemen who attended. I hope you all had fun and had a chance to have a go at one of the make & takes.
Here is the fab little card that Helen demonstrated and that the ladies were able to have a go at.
Helen used the new Pennant Parade stamp set and the Petite Pennants Builder punch, which proved to be very popular. Even I must have one now!
I do have a couple of spaces on my new Stampers Group left if anyone would like to take them. Its a great way to buy all those lovely new things you would like and spread the purchases over a few months.For one of those months you will be the virtual hostess and receive the hostess benefits.
I have also introduced gift vouchers. Take a look at the Gift Voucher page for further details.

Elegant Soiree Mini Card Class

I spent this morning with a lovely bunch of ladies making cards in a pub! Doesn't get any better than that, although we did only have coffee and cake. Good job really as I am not sure how straight the cards would have been if the alcohol had been flowing!

Thank you ladies for having me and here is a picture of the cards we made.

A commissioned card!!

Hi, what a beautiful day it is here on the South coast today. Lets hope it stays like this for the weekend.
One of the ladies at work asked me if by chance I had a camper van stamp as she was looking for a Thank You card with a VW camper van on - private joke I think. You should have seen her face when I said yes and what colour would she like!
Anyway here it is, and she was chuffed with it.

Wick Hall Card Class

I have just finished putting all my bits away following the Love Letter mini card class that Helen and I took at the Wick Hall on Tuesday evening.
We had 18 ladies altogether who all did a fantastic job with their cards. As the evening was so successful and they all wanted more, Helen and I will be running a mini Christmas Card class on Tuesday 13th September. If this too is a success we may consider making it a regular thing.
Secretly I think some of the ladies just enjoy getting out for a good chat, with a little card making on the side! No problem for me, they are all great fun and its great to see them letting their hair down!!
These are the cards we will be making and if you fancy joining us, just let me know and I will make sure there is a space for you.

Very bad blogger again!!

Sorry that I havent been blogging for a while, but since the kids broke up from school , I dont seem to have had a minute to sit down and do anything.

We have had the Wick Week "Coffee & Create" where 25 ladies came along and made a beautiful posy with Michelle from the Flower Shop and a card with Helen and myself. It was a great success and the finished items looked great.

I will try and make a effort over the next couple of days to get my blog up to date.

At last......

At last a few hours to myself!!
I am actually at home for a few days, but unfortunately because I have torn a muscle in my leg and am trying to rest it as much as possible. Easier said than done if you have kids as you mum's well know!
Anyway thought I would show you a card I have just made using the "Beautiful Wings" embosslits die. It is actually a bigger version of one of my 5 for £6 cards, but using gems instead of beads for the centre of the butterflies. You could of course use pearls as well.

Friday, 8 July 2011

Springtime Vintage Papers

Helen and I are at Horndean on Monday demonstrating for a lovely group of ladies at their "50 up" club.

We were asked to do them a small project each and this is what we have come up with.

Hope you like it. It is using one of my favorite papers, the Springtime Vintage set. I only wish they did wallpaper in it too!

Saturday, 4 June 2011


Here is a larger picture of the vase of gerbera's I made for our craft extravaganza.

There are great fun and would cheer up any room!

They are made using the "Flower, Daisy" sizzix bigz die which is which is in the mini catalogue.

If you don't have the die, but would like some flowers, I can do a 'Build a Gerbera Flower" pack for 50p (+ p&p).

Just let me know how many and what colour you would like.

Show & Tell time

I have had another busy week, with two mini cards classes last week, a card class and a demonstration this week. No peace for the wicked!! Still half term next week and I can have a rest with the kids!

As I haven't posted any pictures for a few days I thought I would show you the Thank You cards that I did for my Stampers Group ladies last time.

I used some of the Newsprint paper. I am really liking the cream, black and red colour combo at the moment, as you can probably tell from a previous post!

I have used the Curly Cute stamp set, which I have to say is my fav sentiment set!

Saturday, 14 May 2011

Craft Extravaganza

At last!! After weeks of organisation and preparation yesterday was our second Craft Extravaganza and what fun we had! Well I hope everyone else did too!!
The ladies all received a goody bag and free entry in our prize draw with enough prizes for everyone, so no one went away empty handed. They also complete five projects and had a superb buffet lunch courtesy of Sainsbury's and my Mun, who we couldn't have done without.

We made a tissue box cover, a coaster set, a small acetate box for 5 five chocys, a sour cream carton full of jelly beans, a card and some scrunched flowers.

Below are some of the photo's of the day.

Goody Bags!

New Mini Card Class Design

Hi. Sorry I haven't posted for a while, but Helen and I have been busy planning and preparing for our next Craft Extravaganza, which is only two weeks away now!

However I thought I would show you another mini class set that I have eventually finished.

It is using the Love Letters designer paper which I think you will agree is a very elegant design. I have used the motor cycle stamp which is proving to be very useful.

Don't forget if you fancy hosting a party please contact me and as the hostess you will get your class free, providing there are at least 6 people attending.

Saturday, 23 April 2011

Play Time

What fantastic weather we are having at the moment. In between planting the pots and getting the garden into shape, I have been playing with my Big Shot!

Whist blog-hopping, I came across these lovely gerbera's and decided to have a go myself. I think they have turned out really well and might well be Incorporated into one of our mini card classes.

I have used the 'Flowers, Daisies' and 'Pillow Box' dies.

Just to remind anyone that is planing to come to the Craft Extravaganza on May 14th and hasn't let me know yet, I will need to know over the weekend, as Helen and I will need to start the preparations next week.

Tuesday, 19 April 2011

Scrapbooking at last

I thought it was about time I did some scrapbooking. Partly because I have loads of photo's that I keep meaning to do and partly because I have been asked to do some scrapbooking parties and thought it wise to have some Stampin' Up sample pages ready to show. So here is one I made earlier!

Better late than ever I hear you say!!

It is using paper from the Newsprint set and Fun Flowers from my new favorite toy the Big Shot.

Quick Makes

I was asked by a lovely lady that I work with, if I could make some baby cards as she is going to need some in the coming weeks.

So sat down for a couple of hours today and make these cards using the Baby Tees Jumbo wheel.

I was also able to use some bits from my scrap box (not all SU, but I am afraid I cant throw anything away - I wish I could and so does my husband, but it seems such a waste!)

Hope you like them!

Next Windmill Class

Hello to you all out there in blog land. Isn't the weather great. Just right for getting out in the garden and doing things, hence why not a lot of posting done. Sorry.
Was busy last week with a class at the Windmill and getting ready for mini card party this week.
Just thought I would show you what we will be doing at the next Windmill class on 11th April.

Wednesday, 9 March 2011

Like a kid in a sweet shop!

This is one of the many fun things about being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator. The big boxes of stash that turn up and have to be unpacked!
The down side is that it isn't always all mine!

Here is a picture of the one that has just turned up and needs processing.

Tuesday, 8 March 2011

Quick Make

Hi, I thought I would should you this little card that I made last night whilst waiting for the veggies to cook.

It was made with the scraps I had left over from tonight's class pack's. Using the scallop square, I punched out the shapes from Blueberry Crisp paper with a Happy Birthday stamp from one of this year's Sale A Bration sets.

Great way to use up all those little scraps you don't know what to do with!

Windmill Class

First entry this month! Cant believe that it is March already!

Just to remind everybody that it is the Windmill Craft Club on Monday when we will be making the acetate boxes. Still spaces left so let me know if you would like one by the weekend so that I can make enough packs for all those that attend . Only £10 this month again and there should be enough stash to make 3 boxes and two cards.

If you don't want to join in the club class, but would like to bring your own project to do please feel free. There will however be a small charge of £5 to cover costs, but at least you can devote a couple of hours to yourself and have a cup of tea and a bicky in peace.

Hope to see you there.


Monday, 21 February 2011


This week it is my sister's and a very dear friend's birthdays, so I thought that I would make them presents this year as I really didn't know what else to get them. So I decided to make a set of small but perfectly formed cards in one of the no-cut boxes. I once again used the Sale a Bration sets as they just work so well for this sort of project. I was also a great way to use up some of that ever growing scrap pile! (Don't forget there are now very few days left if you wish to get your hands on one of these sets as the offer ends on 29th Feb.) Hope you like them

March's Windmill Class

Hi there. I hope you are enjoying the sun. I have just been in the garden clearing some of the weeds where the little daffs and crocuses are just beginning to poke through. It looks like spring is on its way!! Time to think of Easter and Mothers Day.

With that in mind in the next class at the Windmill on Monday 14th March, we will show you how to make these lovely little acetate boxes. They can be used for lots of occasions and filled with almost anything!

You will be given a pack with enough materials to make 3 boxes and a couple of cards too, all for £10 including tea & biscuits. If you don't fancy that but want to bring your own project to do and just join in the banter and have a cuppa please feel free to join us. There will be a small charge of £5 to cover the cost of the hall and refreshments.

Februarys Windmill Class

Yesterday Helen and I held our monthly class at The Windmill, Littlehampton. We had a really pleasant afternoon with our ladies. They made this concertina album with The Jolly Holiday papers. Helen helped them with the album and we just left them all to do their own thing and I have to say they all looked really wonderful. Helen and I felt quite redundant!!

Next month's class is on the 14th March and I will post a picture of the project we will be making as soon as I recharged the camera batteries!!

Sunday, 13 February 2011

Thank You notes

Here are some little cards I recently made for my Stampers Group. I used the Sweet Summer & So Happy for You stamp sets from the Sale a Bration offer, which is only available for another two weeks.

Beware Pirates!!

My latest purchase is the Beware Pirates stamp set which I am loving!!
I have been playing with it and made this card along with one made with the Lovely as a Tree set. They both used some retired paper that needed using up.

The happy birthday is not a Stampin Up stamp but one I found lurking in my box.
I have also used the pirate stamp in another mini class set that I have designed ready for use for our next class or party. Take a look at the "Party & Mini Class" page and you will see it there.

Happy New Year

Well I have spent the morning packing away the christmas decorations, putting the cards in a safe place for next year and hoovering up the pine needles from the tree.

I hope to be able to re home the Christmas tree where my husband works and maybe use it again next year. After all a tree is not just for Christmas, it is for life!

I just thought I would show you the decorations I made for the tree using punched shapes, which were folded in half and stuck together with a piece of Stampin Up's elastic cord in the middle. I used miles of the stuff over the festive period on my pressies and gift tags.

Easy to make and great fun with the kids helping. Just like making the paper chains in the old days!

Please excuse the fuzzy photo. I hope for a new camera for my birthday. But I am not holding my breath!
