This month at Fantastic Ribbons we all got to play with Washi Tape...well that was like giving sweets to a toddler.... I LOVE LOVE LOVE Washi. 
We (the design team) told each other what we were going to do and OH boy, you'll need to keep in touch with the blog as they have got some amazing cool.
Anyhoo's, I decided to part cover a book with mine, but I also thought Id have a little experiment, so I covered some white Bazzill Card stock with it and then die cut out a couple of flourishes, it wasn't the colour I wanted to I coloured it with Pro Markers...Perfect, it worked!!! and the joy is you can still see the pattern through it, then I wanted to make a flower, I know, I try and make flowers out of anything, but this was FAB, I just started with a circle of Bazzill and then started pleating and sticking as I went round, I did a couple of layers and then added a yummy button to finish it off. 
Quick tip: if you make an embellie from it and don't want it to be sticky on the backside, just add a spot of talcum powder, that will stop it sticking to things you don't want it to stick to :) :)

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
