Ladies Craft Night Scout Fundraiser

This Friday evening I will be at the W.I Hall Kingsland Rd West Mersea where I will be showing you how to make Christmas Cards.  There will also be other crafts available with Jane the Scout leader.

There are four designs to choose from, or make them all!  £1.50 per card.



These have been made with Stampin Up products, all the designs have been cased from Pinterest, I normally love to make my own designs but I have been under a bit of time pressure this week as I am getting ready for a Christmas craft fair for the NSPCC at West Mersea School on the 25th November.
I have changed the card designs a bit.

Please come along on Friday should be a fun evening.

Stampin Up Display Stamper November 2017

Back in July I entered my five best pieces of work to see if I would be choosen to be a Display Stamper at the UK November 2017 On Stage event.  This is a twice yearly event that Stampin Up Demonstrators have the chance to attend.  We get to see the new catalogues early and also get some freebies, as well as stampin and having lots of fun.  I was picked! I was very shocked and happy for this to happen to me.  Early October I received a parcel which was filled with new items from the 2018 Spring/Summer catalogue, it was my job to design and make 20 projects, all while keeping it a secret.

I have a sneak peek below of a couple of my projects, these stamp sets will be available to purchase in Januray 2018  If you would like a catalogue, please get in touch with me.

Christmas Gift Tags

I have been getting myself ready for my first Christmas Craft show in November.  The last couple of days have found me making gift tags.

I really like this colour combo, Pool Party and Cherry Cobbler!




I used the Merry little labels stamp set and punch for these tags, I also stamped the background on two of my sets with Pool Party ink.  
Still lots more items to make!


Birthday cards

I had a rush job on today as my husband needed a birthday card for work.  I decided to make two of the same card.



I received this bundle a couple of weeks ago but this is my first play with it.  Its a great set.Oh so eclectic.

If your interested in any of the items used please click on my shop tab.

Christmas gift bags

This weekend I have been working on items for a Christmas Craft Fair that I am taking part in in November.  I found some brown bags in my stash, that are now retired.  Although if your interested in making this item Stampin Up sell a Framelit (on page 212 of the Annual Catalogue) that makes up small bags.


I started by stamping reindeer all over the bag, in white ink.  Then I cut out a white stitched circle, which I stamped and embossed in copper embossing powder.  I used a sentiment from the Tags and Trimmings bundle.  The leaves were stamped and die cut using the Oh so eclectic bundle and the star was die cut using a die from Tags and Trimmings in Fresh Fig.  I used Soft sky as a strip for the background, again  using the star to cut from the bottom.  All finished off with a bulldog clip.
