QVC are getting ready !!! So on Friday I went up to West London and spent the day filming a promo shoot for their Christmas in July shows.... More deets to follow soon :) :)
Stephanie was doing some FAB crafting on cupcakes...actually, thinking about it, she didn't share any...I may have to have a word with her about that ... Hee hee

Amy was busy on cards and I was working on a Scrapbook...probably the three most important memory making elements in a crafters life !!!

The house we were filming in was A.M.A.Z.I.N.G !!!! From the outside it just looked like a three bed semi...BUT...Oh my goodness ...THE INSIDE !!! Well, stunning. Oh and did i mention it was far from a three bed had 5 bedrooms and seven bathrooms. !!!! I did get photos and videos of the place but I think it would be wrong to post them on here, one, because of the owners privacy and two, because you'd all be very jealous and have the hump !!!
After whizzing home through the London traffic, I got back in time to run the Hoover round and await Kirsty Wiseman's visit. She'd been in Essex photographing a friends talking of cameras I got my DSLR out, that I've had for about three years and have never taken it off Auto...well.....within 5 mins she had me shooting in MANUAL....I was like...OMG...I've just shot in manual !!!!
We went over to the shop in the afternoon and whizzed around the village shooting in manual (claps hands and pats myself on the back), will share the pics at a later stage, as I left my SD card in the shop..whilst my photographic skills are improving I can't say the same for my memory !!
The woman is amazing, her teaching skills are second to none and she explains it all in layman's terms...just what I need.
Anyhoo's the GREAT NEWS is, she's coming to Sugar and Spice at the beginning of September to run a one day class. I will be putting more details out this week. Spaces are going to be extremely as soon as you see them...get in there !!!
Right off to catch up on the Apprentice :) :)

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
