A Quick Catch Up!

Hello again,

Well, I am not doing a very good job of blogging lately - it's well over two weeks since I last posted!

Just to catch up - my first class at the Chesterfield store went really well and my ladies all seemed to enjoy themselves, leaving with their lovely Christmas card designs, asking me when my next class was.  I have also done another two classes during our 'Birthday Week', using the fabulous new collection of 'Time Traveller' Perfect Partners by Sheena Douglass - lots of messy play with the gilding wax!

Anyway, I've not been in my craftroom for a while again now, so I thought I would post a few of the samples I made for my recent demonstration in Leeds. These ones were using the 'Autumn Morning' range from Sara's Signature Collection.

Products used 
12"x 12" Paper Pad, Natural Wood embossing folder,
Leaves are Falling metal dies and Pebeo gilding wax

Products used
Rustling Leaves stamp set and Scattered Leaves metal die

Products used
In the Forest embossing folder, Scattered Leaves metal die, 
Flourish Leaves metal die and Pebeo gilding wax

I have my next demonstration booked for three weeks today, so will be busy preparing more samples once my goodies arrive. 

I will try and show a few more of my samples as soon as I can.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend, and the extra hour in bed tomorrow!
Hugz, Jan xx

Happy Birthday!

Hello everyone,

I can't believe it's been three weeks since I last blogged - shame on me!

I have been so busy with my new job that time has literally flown by. Our grand opening went really well and we have had lots of new visitors to the store. There have been lots of things happening, what with all the classes and demonstrations, together with some fabulous offers.

My first bit of exciting news is that I will be holding my first class at the new store today - I am feeling a little nervous, but I have 15 lovely ladies to keep me company while we make some fab Christmas cards using Sara's Contemporary Christmas collection. I will try and post a picture of the cards we make later.

I also have my first demonstration day for Crafter's Companion coming up on Saturday too - so double nervous. I have been flat out making samples for the day, hence me being missing in action here on my blog. I will also try and post some of my makes here later.

On a crafty note, I have a cute little card to show you today which I made for one of my new friends at the store who celebrated her birthday at the weekend. This is probably most typically my style of crafting, and yes you guessed, I did use an LOTV stamp for the main focal point! Here's what I made ...

I used some pretty design paper from my stash, together with the LOTV image 'You're a Star', which is coloured with my Promarkers (and a little added sparkle, of course).

The flowers are from Dreamees and are stamped and cut out, then inked and layered. The sentiment is from a freebie set from a recent magazine purchase.

I will let you know how I get on with my endeavours, but in the meantime, I hope everyone has a great day.

Hugz, Jan xx
