Craft Day Event

I'm still not fully computerised but it appears I have a post - hurray!

Just in time to tell you about an event I am arranging.
I will be hosting a Craft Day on Saturday 28th April from 9.30am to 3.30pm.  All the projects and cards will be made using the very versatile stamp set 'Painted Harvest' from Stampin' Up!

The cost of £45 gets you the stamp set, a set of 4 Stampin' Spot ink pads, all card, material and embellishments to make all the cards & projects, project instructions to keep and lots of samples to browse for inspiration and tea, coffee and biscuits!

You need to bring a packed lunch, acrylic blocks and basic crafting kit (full details can be provided on booking) and some pennies for a raffle of Stampin' Up! goodies.

These are a few samples using the set:

The venue for this event is Stoke Sub Hamdon Memorial Hall, West Street, Stoke Sub Hamdon, Somerset TA14 6PZ.

I will also be offering a discount on co-ordinating punches I am using on the day and 10% discount on orders taken on the day.

Booking is essential with full payment by 14th March.
Contact me for any questions, further details or to book!

An ongoing issue with pictures and my computer has rather brought this to a standstill recently, still need to spend some time attending but will try this post!

From now (11pm Sunday) for 24 hours Stampin’ Up! are offering free shipping on ALL orders which  is a very rare offer.  However small (or indeed large) your order is you won’t pay the normal £4.95 p&p charge.

Here is a link if you fancy  stocking up with anything:

NEW products!!

I do always seem to be apologising on here as I can't keep up with myself.

A post goes on Facebook everyday so please follow if you are that way inclined BUT I know not everyone is so will try harder again to update the Blog on my computer.

I've just added a link to the new Autumn/Winter catalogue in the side bar - if you would like a copy let me know or if you fancy a chart to play with new products and see them for real give me a shout.

I shall add some more pics tomorrow to update you a little with the last few weeks.

Christmas again

Thanks to everyone that popped along to Yandles Handmade Craft Market last week - despite the slightly inclement weather which was a shame.

I then popped off to Snowdonia for the week and have actually had a week off crafting - just returning in time to make another Christmas card of the week!

This one is made with the Colourful Seasons bundle and another challenging colour combo of Pool Party, Calypso Coral, Night of Navy and Tranquil Tide.

I'll pop back with anything else that was missed last week and have an order going in on Monday 31st if anyone 'needs' anything!

Handmade Craft Market

Fingers crossed for the weather tomorrow as this afternoon has been horrible!

I'll be at Yandles Handmade Craft Market in Martock from 10 until 4.30 selling lots of lovely  cards & gifts made with Stampin' Up! products (including some daisy frames) and will hopefully be demo-ing some stamps and available for you to peruse the catalogue and treat yourself to some products yourself.

These are some of the frames heading for the market:

I also seemed to start something off last week with a new picture I made and have used as a cover photo on my Facebook page.

On page 183 of the Annual Catalogue there is a list of all our 50 colours mixed up to show how well all the families blend and tone together and I wanted to do something with it, so I made this:

, It does show off the colours nicely doesn't it?
Each 'flower' is made from 3 of the daisy punches (so popular we currently can't order them because demand has far outstripped supply) and the centre is one of the matching stamps, stamped in the same colour and punched out with a circle punch.

I've made some smaller versions too I'll pop back with.

July offers

And it's straight back to my latest Christmas card because Stampin' Up! have some offers for you this month.

The first one is that if you spend £45 this month you get a Bonus Days code for £4.50 that you can spend with Stampin' Up! during August (this applies to each multiple of £45 you spend).

The most exciting offer though is a joining offer, we all want to join again.

For your £99 joining fee you get £195 worth of Stampin' Up! goodies, how fab is that?

Firstly you get to choose £130 worth of whatever you want from the catalogue, then you get a free Carols for Christmas stamp set which is brand new and will be in the Autumn/Winter catalogue, this a card I've made from my set:

These are the stamps in the set:

There is also a co-ordinating thinlit set and you can buy this within your £130 or get it from next month.

The other pack you get free contains a pack of grid paper, a bone folder, 2 x 'D' blocks for your stamps, a pair of paper snips and a snail adhesive.

It's pretty good isn't it?  So if you need to add to your stash and want lots extra for your money this is the way to do it.  
If you have any questions let me know - remember there is no obligation to do anything at all after 'joining' you can just buy your initial pack and that's you done so there is nothing to lose.
