I have to confess that I am really quite excited about the new lot of classes coming up. I think they might be our best ever! I keep seeing peeks of what Polly is doing and Marion's card classes are getting booked up fast. Me on the other hand have a few tricks up my sleeve.... a birthday layout with super cute mini birthday bunting, a mini album to showcase your top summer photos, a spooky but sparkly spider web Halloween layout and a Halloween box for treats that you could make for the trick or treaters or maybe they are too yummy to give away!
All ideas are stored here....
This is my book of ideas,small enough to fit in my bag but big enough to sketch in. Do you have a book of scrapping ideas? If not start one today!!
Also another exciting class thing for me is the scrapbooking beginner course which starts on 20Th September. Oh to see those eager newbie faces again! Do they know they are entering in for a life time scrapping addiction?!

MORE MORE MORE.....

Just uploaded LOADS of new YUMMIES on the site so you can have a SNEAKY PEEK of what's on it's way, within the next week or so.
I'm loving the HAMBLY SCREEN PRINTS and the SCRAP WITHIN REACH papers are just gorgeous and as for the KAISER well.... it has probably been one of the most popular lines we've EVER HAD, there's just soooo many SCRUMMYLICIOUS products, I'll be adding more just to keep you salivating..
ANYWAY enough of work for just one minute...BIG BROTHER, it has got to be a fix, no offence to RACHEL but how did she stay in over STUART??? and that NICOLE....well she just needs a bloomin' BIG SLAP, I can't even think of one nice thing to say about her, so I'll say nothing at all.
Did anyone see X FACTOR on Saturday, how funny is that. In fact it was so funny that I had to watch it again on Sunday night, just to see the two brothers from Wales singing (allegedly) Misterious Girl, I get confused with my self as one minute I'm screaming with LAUGHTER and the next I feel SORRY for them.

Rooooolllls of Ribbon!

We have just this minute finished adorning our ribbon shelves with our gorgeous new ribbons... well, most of them (I secretly think that Marion has a ribbon fetish as she has bought soooo many new ones!)... ;)

We have finalised our class lists, projects to follow but the papers and ideas are all down on paper... You can see them on the shop site (www.sugarandspicecrafts.co.uk) and of course if you are interested in joining us do phone or pop into the shop and book! We would love for you to join us for a paper project or two and a few choccie biscuits.

The doodling class went amazingly well yesterday and we saw the most creative designs popping out. Thank you ladies for the fantastic class and the laughs... and lovely lemon yum-yums :) And a belated happy birthday to Jayne who was celebrating a certain special birthday. She kept us giggling with her little tales ;) Who is in your lust book?

And our new kits have been flying out of the door too :) So if you'd like one you'll have to be extra quick!

... hooray!

... I hear the new goodies are in ;) (lots of happy dancing here!) Hooray! After much waiting and frantic searching. I just can't wait to get into the shop tomorrow and have a good peek at it all IRL, rather than a catalogue ~ yes, it's all very lovely in a catalogue but nothing beats RL does it??

I also have the doodle half the day class running on Saturday, which still has spaces... you honestly don't have to be good at drawing. I have a fabby cheats way of doodling too. We show doodling on lettering, doodling using patterned paper as a guide and free doodling. The hardest it gets is drawing a heart and ladies I know you can all draw a heart :)

We are also coming up with fabby, brand spankin' new classes starting in September... So just keep a look out for our sneaky peeks. Pop into the shop for full reveals, once they are up here on the blog!

And of course we will be announcing all the new yummies coming into the shop which Marion ordered from CHA here too... ;)

FEELING SAD !!!!! THEN HAPPY AGAIN....

Well we sat and waited and waited and waited and oh I could go on...... BUT our order didn't arrive, Boo Hooo!!! So after the initial temper tantrums and sulks we decided hey what the heck, lets design something amazing...... and so we did.
Paula and I sat down on Sunday and started off with one idea and after about three "ooh but what about if we do this and we do that" came up with our NEW "The 12 Days of Christmas" not to be confused with the one we done LAST YEAR, this is oh, so different and you are going to love it, we're keeping it under wraps at the mo. Oooh we're such teasers, BUT we will give you a sneaky peek.

Yummies!

Our ribbons :


Just check out all the gorgeous colours and textures and patterns... Sold by the metre or in our special bundles with felt flowers.

Our papers:

This is just a tiny, itty, bitty selection of the papers we have in the shop at the mo. Brights, black and whites, pastels and all colours and patterns imaginable!

Our custom made books:


We have a huge selection in the shop made with plain chipboard, blackboard and acrylic. We also have samples set up in the shop too... just to give you a little bit of inspo ;)

And finally... in the shop we are all waiting for a knock on the back door. We are desperate to get our new kaiser order in and ready for Ally Pally! But while we are waiting for all the yummy scrummy-ness to arrive from Kaiser and the states we are a hive of activity working hard!
Keep your eyes peeled for new classes (!) birthday party celebrations (which include a fabby raffle and 20% off stock) and us at Ally Pally :) Marion will be sending a newsletter with all the details soon ... or keep checking back here and we will fill you in with the details nearer the time.
And just to make you laugh...

A LITTLE BIT OF INSPIRATION

Hi, for those of you that have been lucky enough to get your hands on our NEW STAMPS here's a few examples that we've managed to do in our BUSY schedule. Time needs to learn to slow down. I should actually be a size 8 by now, but something went wrong on the way.






Friday, 1 August 2008

BAck to the grind!!!!

Well, I'm back and in the land of the living, actually got over my jet lag really quickly this time.
Have just heard that we should be getting all the NEW KAISER stuff in within the next 7 to 10 days. OMG where is it all going to go. The rest should arrive by the end of August, if not before !!!!
My new STAMPS have arrived and we've been playing with them today. I'll pop a few piccy's on soon, SORRY but I left my camera at the shop.
If anyone out there is watching BIG BROTHER can we all VOTE REX OFF pleeease..... he is sooooo annoying.
For those of you that voted for us in the CRAFT AWARDS last year, THANK YOU (we got runner up).... and HEY..... you can VOTE again, if you think we deserve it.
Ally Pally is sneaking up on us, it comes round so quick, maybe because it's 2 a year, DOH !!! So we're going to be getting lots of yummy samples ready for that.
I can see a really BUSY time ahead this next two months, so if you see any of us sitting in the corner and rocking, just come up and give us a HUG.
