JUST IN THE NICK OF TIME

I think in the last couple of days I've lost about 10lbs worrying about the deliveries not turning up for Ally Pally.........and then.............they arrived all on the same day..... so I celebrated and ate lots of choccy biscuits and promptly gained about 12lbs.
I really was getting stressed (ask the girls) we ALL put soooo much effort into these shows.
So if you're up there come and say HI and we hope you LOVE all the gorgeous NEW YUMMIES. If your not able to go to Ally Pally just pop down to the shop as we've kept some of the most stunning NEW PRODUCTS back for you guys.
We've made some fantastic samples and are offering some brilliant kits, don't worry they'll be back in the shop on TUESDAY.
I'm really looking forward to the MAKE A WISH CROP on Saturday 4th October (tickets are still available).
Then my card classes start the following week......
Oh boy am I looking forward to my hols in November !!!! I've just found out that the house we're staying in has internet access to I may just have to take my trusty LAPTOP and bore you all with piccy's from the SUNSHINE STATE, don't worry I won't be in a bikini.
Right I'm getting an early night as we've got a manic weekend ahead and lots of chatting to do, one of the lovely things with the shows is all meeting up, it'll be great to see Bev (Banana Frog) Vikki (Capture the Magic) Hah!! I spelt your name right !!! Amanda (Your Touch of Craft) and Sue and Julie (Craftwork Cards), in fact we're going out on the Saturday night with Vikki and her girls for an Italian, I have asked Vikki to be on her best behaviour as we do have a REPUTATION to think about !!!!!!
Have a great weekend everyone.

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 不不不不 Steve has more hair than both of them put together so as a gesture of kindness he hid his. 不不不不不  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
