Thursday Class Card Project

Our November class was held last Friday, a bit later than normal due to me being away at convention....

Here is the card we made. The bauble is heat embossed with the cherry cobbler embossing powder. These fab new colours are amazing and going down very well with my customers.

Our second project was this lovely vintage box. Everybody received a bar of chocolate to put in their finished box to take home, but it will easily hold a lovely set of jewellry or fancy pen.

I just love the Mocha Morning paper and the lace ribbon and antique brads.

The final class of the year will be held on the 15th December 2011 please contact me to reserve your space. Class costs £8.00

My Swap and Room Gift from Convention 2011

Last year at convention I found out that when you share a room with a fellow Stampin' UP! person you generally make them a gift. I had 3 gifts to make one for Jane, Gilly and Kerry.
I had kept 4 tins from my extravangza and decided to decorate them and put coasters inside.

Next came my team swap. There were 13 of us this year attending convention, and this was my swap. I bought the frames just after last christmas and they have been hiding in my shed waiting for the right moment....

and finally my convention swap. I made a decision to make a smaller number of swaps this time (21) but for them to showcase a number of techniques and give that WOW factor.

This brings me to the end of this post I hope you like what you see....I would love to have some more friends join me at convention 2012 in Germany if you would like all the details of how you can join me give me a call on 01452 855231.

Lastly Vicky I hope you are reading this!! Thank you so much for your help in making all my swaps/gifts. It made the task a lot quicker XXXXXX

I'm BACK!!!

Hi everyone, just grabbing a quick few minutes to let you know I am still here. I got back yesterday from Disneyland Paris and Stampin' UP!s 2011 convention yesterday.
We have had an amazing few days and guess what Stampin' UP! is going to get even better!! oh yes......and that's a little tease from me so make sure you keep looking in .............
I spent my time with some lovely and amazing ladies who share my love of paper crafting and Stampin' UP! 3 ladies were very special and they were my room mates for the duration and we had such a ball..........some photos will be shared and a few won't (OK Jane my special one of you came out a treat.....but I wont be sharing I promise!)
Here's a few pics today. I am busy cooking tea to leave for my hubby tonight as I am out with the two girls, and it will soon be school pick up time. I just hopes it stops raining! although I could do a bit of free advertising and use my new Stampin' UP! umbrella.

Hi just to let you know I am still around, just had a busy week and a fab weekend attending Jenny Moors extravaganza.
Georgina and I made a weekend of it by taking the children out of school on Friday afternoon and travelling down to Ringwood in Hampshire to stay with my Uncle and his family. Whilst Georgina and I went crafting for the day on Saturday, Hannah and Thomas were set to work raking the leaves in their Great Uncle Steve's garden and then they had a trip to Burley where they went witch hunting....
If you ever get the chance to go to Jenny's extravaganza you will be spoilt and have the most wonderful time crafting with friends and making the most beautiful projects. Jenny is a very talented lady. She holds a crafters competition where you can make something put it on display and then throughout the day everyone has one vote for their favourite thing. I made this Christmas wreath, inspired from one I saw hanging in Jane Cutting's kitchen on Wednesday and I won! I was amazed.
Hannah went off with her dad this morning to stock car racing together with her guy for the competition there. They are having a bonfire after racing. She has just phoned me to say her guy won.....I think we need to buy a lottery ticket ticket, and see if our luck continues!
Hannah's guy was made from lots of brown paper which I have with my stampin' UP orders, a pair of old tights, an old dressing up costume and stampin' UP! cardstock and sticky strip. So it sounds like they had fun today I hope she saves some of her prize for me (its chocs) for relaxing with later whilst we watch the last episode of Downton Abbey and of course X Factor.
I have two classes running next week so I hope to see some of you either Monday/Friday or both.
