And then some.....
It sounds all lush saying I went to Ohio to do some filming for WOW Embossing Powders, and don't get me wrong, it was WONDERFUL.....but now I'm playing catch up LOL !!! I'm very blessed to have amazing people here at Sugar and Spice, thanks girls for holding the fort :) :)
I'm going to be working like a loon today, trying to get all the other embossing powders on the site especially since the moulds are back in stock ....YAY !!!
You can find it ALL here
It never ceases to amaze me how many variations you can get by just playing with the embossing powders, and why not throw a bit of Mica in there or Alcohol Ink...just experiment, if you don't like it, melt it down again...Simples !!!
Nina was amazing yesterday getting all the papers back in order, making it easier for you to choose...we're nice like that LOL !!!
I'm awaiting a delivery from QVC today, for my show on the 8th at 1pm...I wonder what goodies I'll be getting #Excited !!!!!!


Seriously, less than a week ago I was getting ready to set up for Ally Pally and since then I've been over to Ohio and while I am still awake, I thought I'd do a quick blogpost :) :)
So.. Ally Pally..what a fab many wonderful people and so many returning customers....we really appreciate it, thanks guys :)

Still setting up...but nearly there !!
One thing we enjoy about going to the Pally is our stay over on the Saturday night, we usually go to a lovely little Italian restaurant, but this time it was full so we ventured out and found another little Italian restaurant it was absolutely gorgeous.
Here's Polly giggling at something I couldn't possibly explain on here !!! ;)

I love this photo :)
So, with the Pally all done and dusted the very next morning I set off to Heathrow airport to make my long journey to Ohio with Richard from WOW embossing powders, to do some tutorial filming for their launch in the USA, we had a great flight, nearly missed our conne…


Oh Boy..... I love these ribbons, in fact I just LOVE RIBBONS !!!!!
My blog post for Fantastic Ribbons this month is about Backgrounds, that's right, how to use your ribbons to make a background.
Very rarely do I do a DL card, but I felt this just "worked"
Start off with a DL base card, next taking some Bazzill Kraft I die cut two hearts from a piece just smaller than the base card.
Then taking 3 of your favourite ribbons from your Fantastic Ribbons stash, put some adhesive on the back of the heart outline and start sticking your ribbon strips on, this is fab for using up all those little bits and pieces that "we can't possibly throw away"
It looks a bit scruffy from the back, but don't worry thats going to be covered !! To highlight the hearts and give them a little vintage feel, go around the edge (on the front) with little white "stitches"
Tie a piece of ribbon and twine to the front of the Kraft and adhere to the white card base. Finishing off…


And done it again......
I consider myself so lucky to have amazing teachers here at Sugar and Spice, they never fail to amaze me at what they can do, this time Chilli Barb has excelled herself with her Mini Paper Bag Book, it's got amazing embellies that she'll teach you how to make, along with flips and flaps and tags.
