Hey Girls

I am feeling particularly childless right now – my eldest boy is away at Uni and my youngest is away playing rugby with his school in Amsterdam so for the first time ever – I have no children.   It is not a great feeling I can tell you…there are no Halloween preparations going on, no! NONE at all! we dont make a big fuss but the boys usually have come to ‘discuss’ some costume or other they need help making, I am sure you know the sort I am talking about: the scary mad scientist outfit covered in fake blood, the strange glowing alien from outer space covered in fake blood, the mad psychopath with the blood encrusted saw….Yep , I have made them all!!!   But not this year. So I  made a Halloween banner instead! And here it is….Now there are lots of pics as I was taking them with my phone – I have hung the banner up across the window above my sink so I get to see itIMG_3087wtmk IMG_3088wtmk IMG_3089wtmk IMG_3090wtmk IMG_3091wtmk

I have used the fabulous Halloween Banner kit for this but because I have made a 9 piece banner I have added some retired images onto there as well – I love this stamp set the images are fabulous!!!

Right I am away to wallow in self pity and wait you my boy to come back form his trip – we are attending a bonfire and firework display at the weekend and then bonfire food back at home – I cant wait!!!

Till next time , remember to stamp your place in the world!!! XXX


Deviant….me? It is Halloween….

Just a quickie ladies to show you something I have been working on lately…It is not Stampin’ Up! I warn you….however, breaking away from Stampin’ Up! crafting to do something else allows me to come back refreshed….

The image comes from Deviant Art – the link is HERE, and I used Copics and Coloursoft/Prismacolor pencils to colour it…..I hope oyu like this and I will be back later in the week with some Halloween fun!

It’s Ending So Soon……

So… today is the very last day to “Join for £25”.  Yep.. no catch.. you really can join Stampin’Up as a demonstrator for only £25.  So why is this a good deal?

On the face of it, it doesn’t sound all that amazing. I mean, you get up to £26.95 worth of product.. so that isn’t sounding like the most amazing deal of the century. But this is a very clever special.. because you get A LOT when you place your first order.

As a demonstrator you get a standard 20% commission on every order – whether that be product for yourself, or orders from friends.  But if you place an order of over £150 in the first 30 days after you have signed with this special, you will also get an additional 10% in commission back in your pocket (so 30%) PLUS a free stamp set OF ANY VALUE (you choose the set).  Not to mention the  hostess benefits you get on an order over £150.

And because we are currently running extra hostess benefits on workshops over £250.. if that first order is £250 or more, you will also get an additional £25 worth of hostess benefits if you order before the end of October. Phew! So much for so little…..now that is refreshing these days!

This promotion runs from Monday, October 7th through Monday, October 21st, 2013 so don’t delay.

Join the Fun!

There is support and a whole community of awesome demonstrators that share ideas and inspiration. We have a facebook group and ask questions when we need help or answers.  The company also offers support in the form of an awesome website and a bi-monthly mag with lots of ideas too.

I’ve been doing this for approximately 4 years years.. and I have NEVER regretted my decision to join Stampin Up. They are an amazing company to work with. So if you have any questions about this awesome offer please contact me TODAY… as this special ends tonight!  Some of the benefits I mentioned above expire with this offer too… so don’t miss out!

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

12 Weeks of Christmas….Week 2

Hahahahah!!! bet you thought I would forget???   I almost did!!! I have been a bit under the weather this last couple of weeks, a nasty bout of sinusitis seems to have settled first on my throat and now on my chest making me wheeze and need my inhaler a lot more than normal. I have a cunning plan though as I am determined NOT to be dogged by poor health this winter. I have started a morning routine of vitamins and minerals designed to boost my immunity and try and help me keep well this winter which is a really good idea since they are forecasting severe snow….and you all know how much I LOVE snow!!! I will not want to miss out on snowballing with my boys!

Ok, a few things to tell you tonight but will start with

WEEK 2 of 12 days of Christmas!

First the project….Golden Star

The plan with these makes is that I want everyone to feel that they can make them really and this one is so simple and straight forward – I used Raspberry Ripple card stock, the fabulous Gold card stock (see how that gold card positively lights the card up and shimmers beautifully!!! already one of my favourites!!!) Magical Season and Christmas Star stamps – did you know they can be purchased separately and not as part of a set? OH! Yes they can!!! – and gold embossing powder with Versamark and my heat gun. Now every single item, including the rhinestone gems – can be bought over at my online shop and when you do I will send you the instruction on how I made this lovely  Christmas card ABSOLUTELY FREE!!!  This is the link to the SHOP.

Here are a couple of close ups of that gorgeous stamp and Gold card stock….IMG_7254wtmk IMG_7253wtmk

Okay – what else…Oh Yes!!! You only have 7 days left.   What for I hear you shout….Well, in 7 days the most fantastic off that Stampin’ Up! have made in ages will end.

12 Weeks of Christmas….Week 1

Yup, it is ‘that time’ again Ladies.  Did you start making your cards in January like you said you were going to? No ?  me either and from half term until 23rd December always seems to be filled with so much to do that I am often working late into the night trying to make sure I have enough Christmas cards made!

BUT….I thought we might try to be a little organised…so I am going to make a Christmas card every week from now until Christmas…and share it with you. Hopefully you will be inspired to start making your own.

So onto week 1 of 12 Weeks to Christmas cards….IMG_2723

This first card is made with the lovely Winter Frost DSP, Festive Flurry Stamp Set and Framelits, Silver Glimmer card (so Lush!) Coastal Cabana, Bermuda Bay and Smokey Slate cardstock, Soft sky Seam Binding, Silver Ribbon, and finally A Banner Christmas stamp set.
