Fabulous New Class! …and in other news….

Good Morning Girls! – once again time has eluded me, health and the water board people have stood in my way but I have not been idle!  So First of all my youngest son had another trip to the hospital and three days on intravenous antibiotics for another non exterminate infection – this time his shin – and came home on crutches and time off school during his exams. I spent my time either running up and down to the hospital or running up and down to school trying to get him into exams and home right after!   All good fun…  

It was also necessary to cancel a couple of classes which are held in my home since the Water Board people decided that they needed to cut our water off for repairs out in the street – no loo’s! for two days and one night! – so classes have been all over the place with the various bank holidays too!

BUT WE ARE BACK WITH A BANG!  Flaming June is going to be a busy one! Classes are as follows:

Tuesdays – as normal – 10.00 am for Technique Tuesday

Saturday June 16th  10.00 am start – A Fabulous ONE SHEET WONDER Stamp a StackEight Cards, a delightful decorated bag to pop them all in AND a Super Sentiments Stamp set included to take home and use on your cards!  Doesn’t get any better…  This Class is First Come First Served and costs £30 per person. Venue is Table Table at Linwood. Head over to my blog page to book your place using the PayPal button. (NB This class must be paid for in advance to ensure your stamp set is available to you on the day.)

Saturday  June 23rd 10.00 am start – Technique Tornado Day – if learning techniques is your thing then this is the class for you! – 6-8 techniques, the focus is on the technique rather than the finished card although all elements are provided for you to go home with 6-8 finished items including at least one 3d item. This Class is First Come First Served and costs £25 per person. Venue is Table Table at Linwood. Head over to my blog page to book your place using the PayPal button.

Fabulous eh? and here is a sneak preview of what we are making in the One Sheet Wonder class….

Don’t these look totally scrumptious? I love this Twitterpated Designer Card stock from the Stampin Up Summer Mini – you can buy this from now until the end of August but get it quick as once its gone….its not coming back!

In other news…Although our water and the bank holidays have been a disruption this month we have managed to make some lovely cards in our Tuesday class….here’s one we made this week….

I love stepper cards – they are so unusual and can cover almost every occasion. This one is made with Kraft card and Very Vanilla with Early Espresso ribbon and the rather lovely Faith in Nature stamp set. This came out really well and looks lovely IRL with soft embossing on the flower.

Okay Girls – thats it for today – I will be back….honest….later in the week with some more makes to show…Dont forget to book your place on the classes as it will be strictly FIRST COME FIRST SERVED….

till next time don’t forget to stamp your place in the world! xxx


It was a Fabulous Time….

We had a fabulous Make and Take table stocked and staffed by Carolyn Hunter. She had the girls making a super Post-it note Match book which incorporated gorgeous satin Real Red Ribbon as well as lovely butterflies using the embosslits! Well Done! Carolyna dn thank you! We also had a fabulous Samples desk which was stocked by all the girls. We met for a crop night and everyone made the samples which showed off the amazing and beautiful Stampin Up products we were showcasing – Thank you to Absolutely Everyone who helped out! You were BRILLIANT! here are some pics of those tables….

What an amazing lot of girls they are! and we rounded off the day with a little crafting for ourselves too! Perfect!

Okay on to something completely different!  As you will recall some weeks back I committed to getting fitter and healthier …..Well on sunday just gone I took part in the Ignis Asset Ladies 10k race round Glasgow and Bellahouston Park.  When we arrived (My Beloved came with me for support!) the weather wasn’t too bad, very windy and cold but ok. Just shortly prior to the start of the race the rain came, and came and came and came! Sideways at some points! I was totally drenched. Now some folk love running in the rain – not me! I end up with a nasty cold within days and find it hard to shake them off! However, I did mange to complete the course and was please to do so in 1:30:18 so no Paula Radcliffe but you know what?   I loved it! every single step of the way I loved it! Now I did run for a charity and my chosen one was the Erskine Home for War Veterans and if you would like to donate for this amazing cause you can do – the link to the Just Giving site is: http://www.justgiving.com/Lorraine-Harrison-Rogers

I havent torn up any trees with my fund raising but I know that charity will be happy to receive any amount at all as it all goes to helping someone who has been prepared to stand up and protect this country – Thank you to all of them.

Ok – we had our first crop last Tuesday night and it was brilliant – there were seven of us there, some of us had a spot of tea and we got on a crafted, lots of chatter and a lovely time was had by all!  This is not a teaching event and is open to ANYONE to come along and join us. Everyone is welcome. We will be holding our next one on Tuesday 5th of June at Table Table, Phoenix Park, Linwood. all you need to do is bring your project along and get crafting. There is no charge for the Crop but you are responsible for your own drinks etc – food and drink MAY NOT be brought onto the premises I am afraid.  If you need Cuttleug or Big shot for your current project or other bigger equipment just email me the day before and if I have it, I will bring it!

And Finally…..I haven’t yet finalised  the dates for June’s craft classes but will try to get it sorted in the next couple of days. We will be having our usual Technique Tornado Day, our Technique Tuesdays and of course a Stamp a Stack with our Brand New crop to round the month off – Phew – it’s going to be a busy one!

Until next time remember to stamp your place in the world! xxx


Oh My Goodness!….Where to Start…where to start….

Oooh my goodness, I have so much to share with you ….Stampin’ Up! have just launched the new lower priced starter kit which costs £99 and is fully customisable – yes that’s right you can choose any items you wish to the value of £130 to be included in your starter kit along with the business supplies pack which costs £45 – all for a staggering £99. 

This is not a special offer but a permanent price change to the starter kit and there could not be a better way to get your craft business started.

So whats stopping you?

Here are some great reasons to consider the new starter kit –

  • If you already own some stampin up supplies you wont need to double up on some items as you are free to choose any items of any price to make up the £130 of products included in your kit.
  • There are no delivery charges on the starter kit so £99 is all you need to pay to get started.
  • There is an amazing promotion coming tomorrow which I will share with you but I promise you will not want to miss out……….
  • The same great support and offers that come with becoming a demonstrator but with less outlay.
  • The chance to earn some money doing something you love!

And definitely a offer not the be missed, in fact I was gob-smacked when I heard about this offer and I think you will be too……….. If your join Stampin’ Up! during the month of May you will receive a FREE Ticket to the annual Convention in Mainz Frankfurt worth £150!  ABSOLUTELY FREE – GOB-SMACKING EH?



Next up is the simply scored scoring tool.  We finally have our own scoring tool that comes with Imperial measurements in inches but you can purchase a metric plate that nests on top of the scoring board so you can use centimetres.  Genius, no need to purchase two separate scoring boards and if you are like me and use both measurements depending on ease then this is the perfect option. 

We can also announce that the UK market can order the new diagonal scoring plate

Diagonal plate
It also nests on top of the scoring board and has a full 12×12″ sized plate to create your own diagonal score lines which are perfect for making your own envelopes. It costs £10.95 and is available to order now even though you may not see it in the new summer mini catalogue. Please get in touch for more details.

What’s more…..

The new summer mini catalogue from Stampin’ Up! is here……..
