I'M BACK.....

.....And, I've got so much to tell... But first off, the Wedding Show on QVC tomorrow (15th Feb) has been cancelled until 12th March, but don't worry there's an outlet show in it's place, so go grab yourself a bargain !!
I was away for three weeks and at the time it didn't go quickly but now I'm back it seems like it flew by... why is that?? !!
While I was away nina arranged a whole weekend of crafting with Amy Shaw (of QVC) you can choose either Saturday 3rd March or Sunday 4th March, each day will have different projects and you get a jumbo stamp from Woodware :) :) you will make 12 cards in total (each day) and the days will be full of technique, hints and tips, each day costs just £45.00 for the whole day, places are filling up so get in quick, you can call and book on 01268 530933
No sooner am I home and then I'm off again to teach for WOW Embossing Powders in Birmingham this weekend (bit different to California, but hey ho !!!) So any of you retailers that read this newsletter, stop by and take our mini class... you'll love it!!!
CHA.... well it was full of beautiful stash as usual. Quite a lot of it will be arriving around March/April and Oh Boy there's some pure yumminess on it's way !!! But I'm afraid you'll just have to wait and see.... hee hee !!!
As I always do, I ordered a heap load of gorge papers so that can only mean one thing..... Yes.... a PAPER SALE.... so when is it ??? why the same date as Amy's class, the 3rd and 4th March, as we have quite a few people travelling a distance we thought it would be nice to share the savings with some out of towners !!!
So put it in your diary
Sorry no loyalty points or other discounts apply
and while you're here you may as well do one of Amy's classes
I hear the sale was fab (while I was away) and just wanted to thank you for all your support. We really appreciate it :) :) 
We've got a fabulous new concept coming to Sugar and Spice, just for you our lovely customers, which we will reveal very soon, we just need to iron out a few creases, dot some i's and cross some t's so hang in there.
Nina and Barb have got some great classes on the website for you, so go check them out, and if you can't see what you want, just tell us and we'll see what we can do !! Take a LOOKSIE
As soon as I'm back from teaching I'll be working on some new classes, so watch out for those.
It's getting really exciting at QVC, as they're moving to fabbi new headquarters (it looks great) the only downside (for me anyway) is it's going to be in full HD... So that can only mean one thing... I'll have to have a shave !!!!!! Seriously, it shows up EVERYTHING !!
Right must go and get organised oh yeah and have a shave !!!
Hope I didn't bore you all with lots of photo's, especially the foodie ones or did I just make you drool.. LOL !!!

I feel very privileged to have been asked to design some cards using the fabulous Oakhouse Studio Products. Not only does she have some great stamps, ink pads and accessories but she also sells some amazing dyes that are so versatile, I love them !!! You have to check out her pipettes!!
Here's the first one of the three I designed.... You can check it out on her blog HERE, along with instructions...
I'll post the other two in the next couple of weeks ....
Enjoy xxxx


When it's a dress, of course !!!!
Here I've created a little bit of art using the fabulous JOFY stamps from PaperArtsy.
There's nothing not to like about these stamps, then again that goes for all of Jo's designs, simple yet effective and versatile.... See, they're not just for Christmas ... Makes you want to look at all your stamps and 'see' other ways of using them.

Happy December everyone Marion xxx


I'm very fortunate that I have some fabulous friends in this industry. And although we're all incredibly busy we get to meet up every so often.
From the possie of Leandra Franich, Julie Hickey, Paula Pacual, Emma Godfrey, Jo Firth Young and Lin Brown, only three of us were able to meet last week, namely Emma and Paula, although we missed the other guys, it didn't stop us eating, chatting and playing for the day.
It started with Paula sharing some of her lovely new Tonic products.... You absolutely need the pearlescent pastes .... They're gorgeous ....
Then off to the pub for a rather satisfying lunch, then back to mine where we put Emma on the spot...'show us some art journaling......... Pleeeeease'
And of course, Emma being Emma duly obliged, so out came my PaperArtsy paints and stamps along with my stencils and inks.... After being taught step by step, I can honestly say I'm hooked.... So much so that today after the gym myself and the lovely Polly came b…
