Hello all,
The project I'd like to share with you today is very quick and easy to make and uses stamps from two of the sugar and spice stamp sets - 'In a word' and 'Love and Laughter. 

I have to admit I am more than a bit partial to the odd glass of vino as are many other folk I know ;-) and I think giving a bottle of nice wine is often a great way to say thank you to someone.  As with all gifts, it's lovely to receive something that's nicely presented so I thought I'd try my hand at making a wine tag that could be personalised depending on the recipient.  And here is my finished tag:

I started by cutting patterned paper measuring 6" long and 3" wide.  I used a basic grey 6 x 6 paper pad as the paper needs to be of cardstock weight. 
I scored the paper horizontally 2" from the top then used a 1 and a quarter circle punch to make my hole for the bottle. 
The next step was to use a border punch to make the tag edges which I attached to the tag sides. 
I attached two pieces of ribbon and made a small bow and stuck these onto the tag horizontally. 
I stamped the flower heart once as a whole image and in a row along the edge of a piece of co-ordinating cardstock and then cut very small strips to place next to tag edges and cut around the hearts to make the scalloped border at the bottom. 
I stamped the circular frame and the with love words from the In a word set to make the circular embellishment. 
To finish I added a pin, a few beads and gems and attached my tag to the bottle. 
Here are a couple of close ups:

Thanks for looking,

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
