Hi All
Well I'm back in the land of the living, just about anyway!!
I've been going over the yummies that I just HAD to buy for you.
We've got Jilli Bean Soup and Bella Blvd on their way, they are two great new companies for us, both completely different and both absolutely gorgeous. Scrap Within Reach had two new lines, so they are on their way, it's lovely to see such a small independant company growing. Some great new books, and BUTTONS Oh my!! we've got some yummy buttons on their way, and bling ribbon slides and ribbons and papers and.... oh jet lags kicking back in, you'll have to be as surprised as me when it all arrives at the end of Feb.
Perfect timing really, as we have our 20% off SALE on the weekend of 21st and 22nd Feb, so let's make room for all the new lovelies.
BIG THANKS to the girls for keeping the shop running tickety boo while i was gone and Mum, a great BIG HUG & KISS, you're a star!!!!

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
