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
