A Very Busy December

Hello everyone,

Well here I am back at last. This month has been so busy.

It started off with a request to make some samples for Linda at Personal Impressions who made her debut on Hochanda a lovely fairly new craft channel. So along with Christmas shopping, making samples and of course the obligatory Christmas parties I am afraid I have neglected my blog again!!

I can now show you the samples though using all the following goodies from Personal Impressions:

  • Goldring pen with built in 'with love' stamp
  • Eleganza Craft Stickers
  • Crafty Impressions crystal stickers
  • Sentiment Stamps from Marion Emberson and Personal Impressions 
  • Alphabet stencils
  • MDF letters
  • Diecut letters
  • Craft UK Ltd card blanks
  • Crafty Impressions organza flowers
  • Peel off alphabets

I used the stamp in the Goldring pen to make a with love panel, inked it in Memento inks and used this as an accent on a belated birthday card

A teachers gift

Using some vintage tissues papers I stenciled mine and my husbands initials and the word love before heating the paper on a candle and adding some sparkle

A little door hanger for a nursery

I drew these little aliens myself before using inks and stamps 

A simple sympathy card to show off the beautiful sentiment

There is this lovely flourish in with the sentiments and it makes a gorgeous background

A sparkly book marker with my granddaughters name on it

Another door hanger for a lovely lady using the alphabet peel-off stickers

Oh and this is another thing that has kept really busy a fab mannequin tree.
If I do say so myself I am rather proud of this

So that is me for today. I am making some more PI samples for the trade show in Frankfurt in February so if I don't manage another blog have a wonderful Christmas.

Take care

Busy Bee

Hi Everyone,

Well have I been a busy bee or what. All the samples for Linda's first show on the Craft Channel have been delivered. Check out her first show which will be aired on Tuesday 8th December 2015 at 9am and 9pm. Not only will you see Linda's lovely creations but hopefully mine will be on show as well as my fellow design team members. Once to show has been aired I should be able to post my creations on here for you. I was taken out of my comfort zone with a lot of stamping but I loved it

Anyway let me share some other creations I have made in the past 10 days with you

These lovely Wall Art pieces are proving popular at the moment. This one is for a baby girls bedroom

I have discovered Graphic 45 and love the images and paper here is one of three

This one is a little more manly
