World Card Making Day

Tuesday, 3 September 2019
World Card Making day is celebrated annually on the first Saturday in October. It was initially started by Paper Craft magazine as way to help those get interested in card making, and those that already are hooked, to start on maybe their Christmas cards. 

So, this year, I'm holding an event at Castle Connections Community Centre, in Queenborough, on Saturday 5th October.

These cards were a go to make from the latest Paper Pumpkin kit.  

If you're interested, please contact me. Everything is included (expect a stamping block), but card bases, envelopes, stamps, ribbon, twine ... the list goes on, even dimensionals.  The cost is £20 and you won't be disappointed. 

Paper Pumpkin

Wednesday, 15 May 2019
Stampin Up is bringing us once again, something new and exciting. We can now in the UK, get our hands on a Paper Pumpkin kit. What you ask is Paper Pumpkin? I'll admit, I thought the same thing.  Well its a monthly paper kit, which currently is only available in the United States and some parts of Canada.
So what's included in the kit?

  • An exclusive stamp set that is not available anywhere else
  • One Classic Stampin' Spot® from our Classic ink collection
  • 12 exclusive, coordinating envelopes
  • Adhesives and embellishments for all 12 cards
Everything in this gorgeous box is pre-cut and ready to go. 

This beautiful kit is described as "A touch of earthy and elegant spring with lots of layers and texture" 

I can't wait to get my hands on it, but be aware this kit is only available while stocks last. 

Shop With Me

Saturday, 11 May 2019
My Stampin' Up journey is certainly a big learning curve, and today, I've been trying to add my "shop" to my blog; I'm hoping its worked and will make ordering for you all a little easier.

Please just click the link to the right and it will take you straight to my Stampin' Up shop.

I've lots of exciting things planned on this journey; coffee and card events, craft clubs and hopefully a scrapbooking crop. It is after all, it was my first love.

Stampin Up Trimmer

Tuesday, 30 April 2019
The excitement of the new catalogue due soon, always means certain products are retiring.  This has its plus points, as lovely new products will be here soon, but also sadly, some of the much loved ones are finishing.  Now one of those much loved ones will be the Stampin' Up Trimmer.  I know, big shock!!

Stampin' Up have recently had some quality and supplier issues so, are taking this opportunity to explore alternative products. Whatever this is, it will not be the same as the current trimmer.  There will also be a gap before a new product does become available. 

At present replacement blades are out of stock, but I'm keeping a look out for that to change.  Sadly, these too will be unavailable when the new catalogue comes out. 

Please let me know if you would like to place an order for some. 

I'll be sharing with you the retired products list next. 

Castle Craft Club

Monday, 1 April 2019
Yup, that's the name I've given our new craft group being held at our local Community Centre.

I have a friend who comes along, and in her own words "Doesn't have a creative bone in her body".Well I can tell you know, that's just not true.  She's been to both classes, and her cards have been fabulous.  She gets craft!, and by that I mean, she experiments and plays with some ideas, and I do think she's been shocked at how well they've all turned out.

Let me share with you the cards we made from our first class.  We used the "Time for Tea" bundle, which is just perfect for most occasions
Our second meeting we used "Hello Cupcake" stamps, as lets face it, who wouldn't want a card with a cupcake on it.
I'm so enjoying my time with these crafting ladies, that I'm thinking of making it a weekly event.
