Owl Punch

Today I thought I would share a card with you that I made last weekend, using  the Top note Die, my beloved Owl punch and sentiment from a  level 2 Hostess set from the Mini catalogue.

The card stock colours used are Wild Wasabi, Tempting Turquoise, Melon Mambo and Early Espresso.

Back of to put my feet up still suffering from the effects of the sedation I had yesterday.

Just Beleive

Today I held one of my "Sataurday Special Classes" where my ladies get the chance to either just pay for the class or purchase a bundle and get the class free. This time we used the "Just Beleive" stampset to make a total of 7 cards.

River Rock is a colour that I hardly use and I was pleasently surprised at how well it went with Marina Mist and Basic Black.

This was my ladies favourites!!

We used Shimmer Card stock stamped with Crumb Cake, then added Heat n Stick Powder and Dazzling Diamons using the "Stamp a Jig". The sentiment is from a level hostess gift in the Mini Catalogue.

My next Saturday Special is on the 25th June, which is also my Charity Event raising monies for both Breast Cancer Research and Harris Hospice be sure to contact me to book your place!!

1st Birthday

knowing that I'm a demonstrator  and make cards, my daughters friend asked me if I would make her daughters 1st Birthday Card. The only requirement she asked for was it should be "PINK", I then gave my daughter a third degree and found out that the cake was to be themed  and was going to be a castle.

I then put my thinking cap on and this is what I created using Blushing Bride cardstock, ink, designer papers and the sanded background stamp.

and when you open the doors you can see the birthday girl

My demo

I'm really proud to be the owner of a Stampin' Up! Big shot.....(Thanks to my hubby) I did get some comments saying "Ohh I like it in Black" " not seen a Black one"

So here's a quick picture of the items I demo'd on Sunday at Biggin Hill using the Big Shot and some of Stampin' Up!s Exclusive dies and embossing folders from Sizzix.

The first item I demo'd was a book mark, using the Beautiful Wings Embosslit  Die (£10.50) which not only cuts the butterflies out but embosses them at the same time.

The second item I demo'd was the Elegant Bouquet Embossing Folder (£6.95) having run it throught the Big Shot and just using a dauber to add colour to the embossed areas (Pretty in Pink and Certainly Celery) Ladies where very impressed at how quick and simple it was to make a simple but elegant card.

The last item I demo'd was "Fun Flowers" a Bigz L Die (£28.95) I even run some that I cut out through some of the other embossing folders to add texture to them. This is great for making flowers of all different colours and sizes especially for your scrapbook pages.

I do have to say that I got the idea for the bookmark from another demonstrator but unfortunaltey I don't happen to remember her name.

Biggin Hill

Well what can I say but a BIG "Thank You" to all of you that popped by and visited our stall on Sunday. It was great to catch up with old customers, meet new people and of course other demonstrators that made themselves known to us.

I thought I would share with you today some of the pictures we took at the event ~

This is the "Frank" half of frankiesue ~ he was a there on both days and a great help both setting up and packing up as well as ensuring that we were all fed and watered, especially as it was sooo hot in the venue.

 (This is Vanessa and Frank taking a tea break on Saturday)

Here are the display's, every thing was ready with 15 mins to spare before the doors opened, we were all a little nervous by now as it was our first event.

but we all managed a smile before the doors opened!!

It got sooooo busy that I forgot to take pictures of Vanessa and Chirs doing their Demo's they both did a fantastic job and I do know how nervous they both were!!!!

I also need to say thankyou to 2 other people and that is Bekka, for all her support behind the scenes (she's my adoptive SU mummy) and to Maraget my other downline who helped out with our "make n take" so the girls could have a break........ THANK YOU  ladies
