There's so many new things about to take place at SUGAR AND SPICE....Here's just one.
Sixteen years ago today I gave birth to my last little baby, so feeling broodie, but not wanting to have to change nappies and get woken up at stupid O'clock in the morning, I'm having a baby of different sorts - this time it's THE SUGAR AND SPICE DESIGN TEAM, hopefully there'll be multiple births. It's always nerve racking to release something like this as in the back of your mind your always thinking "Say no-one enters".
For those of you who do want to enter, just scroll down and you can find all the details you need, if anyone has any questions or submissions please send them to us at
I haven't forgotten that it's the first of the month (how could I) ???? and YES a WINNER of the BLOG FOLLOWER kind has been picked and this month it's............mhairihastings, Yay !!! CONGRATS !! Just e mail me your address and some yummies will be on there way to you.
We've had around 8 deliveries in the last couple of days, still haven't unpacked it all, shame on us, but we have to stop to stroke, I'm sure many of you will understand that and for those of you that don't, we're not weird, HONEST!! I've been tracking the new goodies from the States and YES they're in the UK, but not Billericay yet :(, so we'll have to wait 'til Tuesday, we should have some more room by then.
Last but not least *****HAPPY BIRTHDAY LUKE*****
and GOOD LUCK to EVERYONE who enters

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
