Stampin’ Up UK Regional Event – My Display – Sneak Peak Alert!

I was honoured to have been asked to create a display for the UK Regional Event that took place in Telford today.  It coincided with the arrival of baby Finn so I was a little pushed for time, but sure doesn’t everyone work better under pressure?! I was given the gorgeous stamp set ‘Sweet Lil’ One’ from our upcoming Annual Catalogue along with some new DSP ‘Sweet Lil’ Things’ and the… Read More »

Sale-a-Bration Final Fling!

Last week, I held my Sale-a-bration Final Fling party.  This was a free party for anyone who had joined my team during SAB, or who had spent £150 with me during SAB or hosted an event for during the three months of SAB. I made all my attendees a little gift using the gorgeous Something Borrowed suite of DSP, lace trim and embellishments. It was a scissor charm in one… Read More »

Aces and Diamonds Team night

Last night we had our monthly team night.  We like to catch up, swap cards for ideas and inspiration and do a couple of make and takes.  Last night it was my downline Ali’s turn to introduce her Make and Take and we did some fab punch art. I just love him, he’s so cute! Punch Art is such a great way to make use of your scraps and adults… Read More »

Happy New Year one and all!

2015 has arrived! Do you make New Year’s Resolutions? I must admit, I don’t make any ‘formal’ resolutions as I rarely even remember what they were come March! I am going to try and look after myself a little bit more, drink a bit more water, exercise a little but no ridiculous resolutions that I know I wont keep up with. I’m also going to try and keep up with… Read More »

Stampin’ Up Private Classes

It’s been a week since I wrote a post – sorry about that!  I don’t know about you, but though I love Christmas and have been making Christmas cards since August, it still sneaks up on me and I suddenly realise I still haven’t bought all my Christmas presents and I’m running out of time and ideas, aaaaagggghhhh!! Is anyone else like me or are you all super-organised? Today, I had… Read More »

Holiday Home Tealight Lantern complete with Instructions

I’ve had a great reaction to my tealight lantern that I posted recently. Many of you have requested the instructions so here goes… I was first inspired by a tealight lantern I saw by a Dutch SU demo Aida.  You can see her version on  her facebook page .  I knew I wanted to use the Holiday home bundle and unfortunately Aida’s measurements didn’t suit my design so I had to… Read More »

Stampin’ Up Christmas Crafternoon!

So Saturday was the day of my Christmas Crafternoon!  I don’t do these events very often, but I really enjoy them. Having four hours together gives me the opportunity to showcase projects we wouldn’t normally have time for in a normal weekday class.  So what did we get up to this time, well you may remember my sneak peak photos from a couple of weeks ago, but if not here… Read More »

More team swaps…

There has been so much exciting news from Stampin’ Up this month, that it’s taken me a while to get round to showing you the last of my team swaps. When we swap, we don’t always swap a full card, we just swap the card front or even just an element of the card. With this card, my downline, Caroline Thomas swapped a card front with us. You can see here… Read More »
