Recent Classes

Good Morning. During May I held 3 classes in my small but cosy craft den at home! I have my Saturdays to myself now as all my boys are at cricket so I decided to add in a couple of extra classes just for 4 people from home. They seem to have been well received and I enjoyed them, except having to do a major tidy/move round of my craft room beforehand. For the last 2 classes I did a little Afternoon Tea for my ladies which you can see in some of the following photos.
 Coffee and Walnut muffins and Lemon Drizzle cake - yummy!
Here are the makes from my ladies who did this class on the 9th May.
 This is as tidy as my room is going to get at the moment!
 I even tidied my display unit which has been used as a bit of a dumping ground lately! See the cards on the bottom shelf? We are making those next Saturday at Sheltering Tree class, still 3 places left for this one!
 I even had a gorgeous 4 month old class attendee yesterday, the wee man Hugh, what a little poppet! I had lots of cuddles with him!
If you would like to bring yourself and 3 friends to my craft den for a class then please do get in touch, or I can come to you for a minimum of 6 people!

Right we are off to B&Q, yes on a Bank Holiday, are we crazy?

16th Birthday Card using Project Life

Hi there and happy weekend to you! Yesterday some of my regular online shoppers received their catalogue packs from me! I will share the photos of the packs that I made up for them but needless to say I got a fair few very excited emails throughout the day yesterday! Only 10 days to wait ladies! 

A couple of weeks ago it was Ross’s friend Harry’s 16th birthday. Harry’s Mum and I met at ante natal class and they have grown up together, attending both primary and secondary school together. I made Harry a card with a photo on for his 13th birthday and it went down well then so I knew to use another photo on his card. This is one of my all time faves of the two of them, I have about 6-8 photos of them playing in Evan’s truck. Ross is the boy in the driver’s seat. This was at our old house in the day’s when the boys used to bring a friend home for tea!
I made a card blank from Kraft cardstock and stamped all over it with the Be the Star stamp set. I then used various items from the Project Life Playground accessory pack that is still half price at the moment.
 The sentiments are from the BYOP stamp set which is a fab set for sending gift cards and money. We gave Harry some money to put towards something he was saving for.
A quick card that was very much appreciated. 

Right that’s me done for today’s blog. I have to tidy my craft room as I have 3 ladies coming for a class this afternoon making my Floral Frame project.
Talking of classes I have 4 places left on my Sheltering Tree class next Saturday at 2pm. Its £28 for the class which includes your own stamp set and here is a large sneak peek of one of the makes! If you would like to attend then booking closes tomorrow evening (Sunday).

New Hostess Set

Good Morning! I seem to be addicted to this new Hostess set at the moment. It’s a gorgeous set and will be available to claim on any orders over £150 from 2nd June and costs just £8 in Stampin Rewards (Hostess Benefits). It may be one I may look to sending to my Online Code Club customers in the future too, who knows!!!! 

I have of course used some of the new colours again! Watermelon Wonder, Mint Macaron and Tip Top Taupe.
The design of the card was totally CASED from the new catalogue. There are some great samples in there this year, it’s such a great source of inspiration as well as being a showcase of our products. Talking of catalogues, my first batch went in the post yesterday! I wonder if they will start arriving today? Do let me know if yours does!
 I think I am a little bit addicted to gold embossing at the moment! I sent some thank you cards out yesterday and they had gold embossing on them too!
