My first Design Team Creation...

Well i was totally gobsmacked to be chosen for the Sugar and Spice Design Team, but absolutely chuffed to bits, so after our first initial team meeting, with heads buzzing of things to make, i chose to use the Love and laughter stamps to create my very first design.



So here they are - Love and Laughter, they are just totally gorgeous and my head was buzzing with all sorts of ideas. I also used Memento Dew drop ink pads (all items available to buy from Sugar and Spice shop too!)





Using the New Sprout, i stamped out a polka dot background using the small circular stamp and also onto a seperate piece i stamped background and flowers using the Lady bug and Rose bud pads. Stamped lots of flowers out and cut them all out and attached using a metal brad.

I also stamped and cut out the heart words to create a leaf effect on the main flower,

stamped out a sentiment, bit of ribbon across the middle, stamped sentiment and matching flower inside and hey presto! my first design team card! Phew!


Hope you like it? These stamps are just gorgeous to work with and there are so many possibilities to create with them, this is just one of the sets sold, so why not pop along to Sugar and Spice and have a look at all the stamps, im sure you will just have to have them all too?

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
