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 !!!

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
