Getting brave!




Hello peeps! Phew we have been super busy in the shop the past few weeks. Not only have we had HUGE amounts of new stock, we have had the arrival of Edith the EPOS machine. She is wonderful and very clever! And then to top it all off we have had to get ready for The Big Stamp and Scrapbooking show at Ally Pally. Are you going too?
So when I sat down to relax with paper and wine, I produced this.....


Now stitching on your page might seem like a brave thing to do but it really is quite easy. There are a few thing that do make it easier though, like my fave piercing tool and a nice springy matt so you don't get loads of random creases in the page. Now starting
off with a frame like mine is a good start. I didn't want it to be all lined up and straight as this didn't go with my fun page. This means that it can be wonky but right!
Also the other brave party of the page was using naked chip board! Hey why does he always have to be painted? After all there are no rules in scrapbooking.

So finishing off the page was my title . I have been itching to get my hands on my new Fat and Funky alpha stamps. They are well, so fat and funky and calling to be coloured in! So when I stamped the letters using Versa fine (the best ink EVER!) I had to cut my letters in using my lush white pen.


So will you be brave enough to get stitching on your page?

Love and bugs

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
