3 and counting....

We’re at the 3rd trade show.... this year !!!!!!
To say I’m tired is an understatement, but there’s something about the shows plus adrenaline that just keeps you going.
There’s nothing better than teaching people new techniques and that’s what these shows are all about. That and having fun of course !!!
We’re all set up...this is the calm before the storm ;) we have so many new things to show this year, it makes it all the more exciting.
One of the best things about trade show shows is meeting up with buddies in the industry and even though I see Leandra and Mark (PaperArtsy) every week (we quiz together) it was great to go out with them last night.

Richard and Mark look like they’re praying, when in fact they were having a bald off 🤣🤣🤣🤣 Steve has more hair than both of them put together so as a gesture of kindness he hid his. 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣  It’s now 6am, I’m ready to jump in the shower and get this day started... think of me standing from 8am to 6pm.... I hope you get to sit a lot m…

One for the Mums ...

In celebration of the fabulous Catherine Pooler Inks about to hit the store, I thought I'd pop a little card on here. Take a folded card base, I always make mine from card stock, then I know the piece on top is going to match perfectly. then cut a smaller piece and perforate the edges, you can use a perforating blade, if your trimmer has one, or there are many dies out there that do this in a snip ! Using the WOW! Embossing Powder Layered Hearts Stamps, I inked up and stamped using the Catherine Pooler Daydream, Aquatini and Skylight Inks.
Embellish with a Uni Ball Signo White Gel Pen, one of my favourites !!!
Finish off with the Mothers day sentiment from the WOW! Embossing Powder Everyday Sentiment Stamps, inked in Versafine Onyx Black, adhere with foam pads. Check out PAPERBOX for a great selection  of card stock. Thanks for looking

IS IT EVEN WORTH IT !!!

Apologising that is… I feel like I'm always apologising for forgetting this blog. I promise I've not been lazing on a sunny beach, I have been working like crazy.
Doing lots for WOW! Embossing Powder now… including, dare I say it, their BLOG!!
Every month I run a challenge, you should have a look and this month there's a 'post a comment to win' thing going on !!!
Here's a few of the projects I've been working on for them lately.










and a few for me :) :) 






CHA - The pictures

It always seems a bit surreal when you're back home from a show, as the days you're out there go SO fast, you really don't have time to think, it's crazy !!!
And CHA, or if I'm being correct, Creativation, was no exception. From the minute we got on the stand at 9am you're there till 6pm, sometimes later if you're still talking to customers and the only chance you get to 'wander' is when you need the loo !!!
So my shots are of stands on route to said loo !!! With the exception of Prima, where I managed to whizz over on the last day and meet my lovely friend Michelle who works for them and we exchanged some goodies.

My Minds Eye went pin wheel crazy...but not complaining, just look at those colours and designs, lots of stationery rolls !!

Fab Scraps had these mannequins all over their booth, showing their fabulous ranges !!
WRMK have gone all out on the sewing, just look at those pastel sewing machines, even if you couldn't sew, you'd just wa…
