New crafting buddies

Gosh I'm back again, I haven't blogged this much ever!

Well I just wanted to link you to my new friends blogs, firstly Debbie, who came over to craft with me this afternoon.  We made the card that she has put on her blog so check that out. You will recognise my current favourite style and my toilet paper butterflies!

And Sharon, who I met at the weekend at the Newbury craft show. I am hoping to see her again at my next Charney Bassett meeting.

It was great to look at your blogs ladies, you both seem much better at blogging than me - its just taken me an hour or so to do the links on mine !!! lol.

Happy crafting and blog hopping.

Newbury Show thank you cards

Hello everyone,

I am back again second blog post this week, I hope you are enjoying my posts!  If you are, please leave me a comment and let me know.

I have heard now that the team of independent Stampin' Up demonstrators on the stand at the ArtStamps show in Newbury talked to more than 300 ladies - wow!  No wonder I'm exhausted and a little "hoarse".  Apparently not many ladies though from the Abingdon/Oxford area, where were you?

Oh well, I have sent out mini catalogues and hand made cards to the ladies who visited the stand from my area, I hope you enjoy leafing through the Mini and whilst looking at the card, it brings back happy memories of a lovely day (at the races!) at the craft show.

My photography still is pretty bad and I'm sure my cards looked much better than this in real life but here is a photo of the card each lady will receive:

All items used to make this card are by Stampin' Up and mostly from the Mini catalogue.

Happy craftng.

Toilet paper butterfly

Hello Everyone,

I had a fab day at Newbury craft show yesterday chatting to lots of ladies about Stampin' Up.  I gave out a few of my toilet paper butterflies and thought I'd post a card I made using one.

The supplies I used were:

Whisper White cardstock
Rose Red Designer Paper
Rose Red Seam Binding Ribbon
Modern Label Extra-Large punch
Word Window punch
The greeting was from Occasional Quotes

The beautiful butterfly was made using two sheets of Andrex toilet tissue folded to make four layers, which I spritzed with water and re-inkers (So Saffron, Rose Red & Pumkin Pie) and whilst still wet I put them, into the Elegant Bouqet embossing folder and ran it through my Big Shot.  After leaving them to dry I die cut them using the Beautiful Butterflies exclusive die for Stampin' Up from Sizzix.

All the above products are available from me, please email me with your order.

Have a great day and happy crafting.
