I've been having a little chat with a few of you guys lately, and have been informed that whilst you read this blog you don't use Facebook. So, after I picked my chin up off the floor and brushed myself down, I realised that you're  missing out :( :( 

I just assumed most people that use the internet use Facebook, silly of me, I know....I also realise I probably use it far too much LOL !! 

So, without further ado, here's a little video I shared (on Facebook) last week....

For those of you that do other Social Media sites, did you know we're on Pinterest, Twitter, You Tube (obvs) !!! and Instagram....I loves me a bit of Instagram....go check it out, 'Sugarandspice' it's such a quick and simple way of keeping  up to date with all that's going on.

I Hope you're all enjoying this gorgeous weather, we're busy in the shop, still loading all the NEW yummies on the website, you can check some of them out HERE, we've also been hard at work designing and creating products for the Handmade Fair in September....Exciting !!!! This is a brand new venture for us, I had to make the hard decision, do I go to Ally Pally or the Handmade Fair this September and Kirsty Allsop WON !!!! So annoying that it was on the same weekend, but hey ho these things are sent to try us :) :) :) 

For those of you on the Pocket Scrapbooking Course, here's a little sneak of month 5

Talking of Pocket Scrapbooking I'm thinking of doing little video tutorials, so watch this space.

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 🤣🤣🤣🤣 Steve has more hair than both of them put together so as a gesture of kindness he hid his. 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣  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
