Stampin' Up! ruffled ribbon share

Now I absolutely love all the ribbons in the Stmapin' Up! catalogue, but don't always need 10 metres at a time, and as I want them all it gets very expensive! This is why I'm launching my 1st ribbon share today - you can have a metre of each of the new In Colour Ruffled Ribbons for £5.30 including p and p. If you would like a share of this just let me know -, or 07877042498. Just wait till you see them in the flesh - they are gorgeous!

Dasher -the most handsome reindeer of all!

I absolutely love Dasher, and am really pleased with these Christmas cards. I have used the lovely striped grosgrain ribbon (which is now available in fab NEW colours), and added interest with the utterly gorgeous Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder.

If you book my class on 29th November you will have the chance to recreate this card in Real Red, Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive, so let me know if you want to come along.

It's time for cake - Stampin' Up! style!

I've got a few events coming up and thought I'd make a 'Book to Look Cake' that I'd seen on a couple of blogs - so here it is!

I found the pattern on Julie Davison's fab blog and spent a few hours cutting and sticking this weekend. You're probably wondering what it's for though - hidden in each slice of cake are some chocolates (of course!) and an IOU for a Stampin' Up! pressie from me. It's a pretty exclusive cake though - only people who book a workshop with me get to have a slice!

The lovely colours are Pumpkin Pie and Chocolate Chip - of course they had to be to do with food! I used the lovely Daisy die for the flowers on the top. I hope you like it - the only truly fat free cake!

If you would like to book a workshop with me I'll save you piece! Just give me a shout on 07877042498 or email me at

Stampin' Up! new catalogue blog hop

Well, the big day finally arrived yesterday and the new Ideas Book and Catalogue is now live in all it's loveliness! The team over at In Love with Stamping are having a blog hop to show off some of the new items for you, and I am thrilled to be joining in. You should have arrived from Alison's blog - wasn't it fab?

Here are my projects:
This one uses the beautiful new Delicate Doilies set stamped and embossed on to vellum. A couple of fabric projects now (yes fabric!).
Not being a sewer(that doesn't look right!) I took to the internet for inspiration and discovered that you can stiffen fabric with glue and water - and then fold it! I made this cute origami box, and then put the fabric through my Big Shot to make the pillow box.

Finally, I'vegot a really quick Christmas card using the fab Something for Christmas stamp. This little beauty is just £8.95 and we had great fun making this card at my launch yesterday.
I hope you enjoyed these and just contact me if you want to get your hands of any of the new (or existing!) products.

Right, grab a cuppa and head of over to Theresa's blog for some absolutely fabulous projects.

Thanks for stopping by.

New Stampin' Up! year and new Ideas Book and Catalogue!

After all the waiting it's finally here - the new Stampin' Up! Ideas Book and Catalogue. You can have a look on my sidebar, or you can get your hands on your own lovely copy in lots of ways! You can join one of my virtual clubs, host a workshop, or I will send you one for £4 inc postage.

There are some fantastic new Stampin' Up! products, including fabric which co-ordinates with our papers and stamps. I'll be posting some no sew projects tomorrow for you to have a look at.

Something else new this year is the hostess benefits. This year instead of earning hostess sets and additional spends you earn more free spends - a minimum of £25 for a qualifying workshop (£150 sales). You can spend these on anything in the catalogue, but Stampin' Up! have also introduced exclusive specially priced sets that only the hostesses can buy, so your free spends go further. Another great change is the addition of 50% discount on an item for workshops with sales of £300. You can earn more items at half price if there are even more sales!

Grab me quick if you want to hold a workshop and get your hands on some of these new items - I' ve got some great projects planned.

Anyway - grab yourself a cuppa and have a good old browse! Call me on 07877042498 or email at if there is anything I can help you with.
