I Love Lace

Good Morning and Happy Friday to you! Today I am not sharing Christmas makes. To be honest I have been making Christmas cards since August and by this time in the year I am MORE than ready for some new products! I am happy to report a rather large box of new Spring/Summer and Sale-A-Bration products arrived last week for me to come up with some lovely makes for you all.

Today I am sharing a make from way back that I never shared with you. We made this at one of my Stamp a Stacks before we got all Christmassy!
 The card blank is Lost Lagoon with a layer of Smoky Slate and then the I Love Lace background stamp stamped in Lost Lagoon. Look at the detail on the stamp, I just love it! So beautiful!
 The For You is one of my favourite sentiments at the moment from the Tag Talk stamp set punched out with the Label Bracket punch and then mounted onto a Smoky Slate flower punched from the Blossom punch.
Hope you like my non-Christmas make?

Weekly Deals

Hello there! I woke up this morning to so fantastic Weekly Deals this week, punches, framelits. markers and accessories!!!
These deals are live until next Tuesday 23rd December and it is probably easier for you to order on my ONLINE STORE if you want to treat yourself. I am always happy to place a group order and have it delivered here if I can get enough people ordering.

I thought I would share a few makes with you using some of the items that are on offer this week. First up we have the very useful Banner Framelits. Set of 6 layering Framelits down from £22.95 to £17.21.
Then the ever popular Banner punch a bargain at just £8.63
The Window Frame Framelits are up next down from £22.95 to £17.21
And finally one of my favourite punches at the moment, the Ticket Duo Builder now only £11.63
 Today I am catching up on jobs and hoping to carry on with some Project Life work that I have been doing, plus I still need to finish my personal Christmas cards!

Yesterday I was on Facebook and spotted this post on a fellow US Demo’s page and it rang so true with me as this is happening to me quite a lot

The other day I was helping my friend place an online order for product. We walked through the process together on my computer here at my house. And when we finished, I discovered that she showed up as a "NO CONTACT" order on my side of things. If she was someone I didn't know, I would NOT be able to send her a thank you. A "NO CONTACT" order is just that... I get no contact information on my end.

I was surprised, but I realized how EASY it was for us to just check "no" when a pop-up window appeared during the ordering process. We were in a hurry. Plus, the way it was worded...by checking YES, it seemed like she would be put on some sort of mailing list.

Of course I know Jenny, so I was able to thank her anyway. But it made me wonder about all the orders I get online where I get no contact information. I truly hope that those who have ordered from me in the past know that by checking "no", I cannot email to thank them.

So to those of you who have placed online orders with me that I haven't personally thanked - I hope you are reading this. I really do appreciate your ordering from me. Thank you so much for supporting me in my business. Please know, too that if you have any questions or concerns about your products, I am here to help you. Call, email, text or message me so we can get things taken care of. I want you to be a happy stamper.

Are you one of my NO CONTACT’s??? I would love to know who you are so I can send you a little thank you card.

Christmas Cards in bulk!

Good Morning folks! Just a little heads up to let you know that the Final of the Strictly Super Fan Quiz will be aired tonight on BBC 2 at 6.30pm. Please tune in to see if I win tickets to watch the final of the show on Saturday! Have to say the whole thing has been an amazingly enjoyable experience and I have met some wonderful people through the process.

So back on to crafting, I thought I would share some of the bulk card making sessions I have had. I think its safe to say I have made more than my fair share of Christmas cards this year and I am more than ready to use my lovely new products that arrived last week. Can’t wait to share these with you and create projects for all my new classes.

I made a large batch of the cards below to distribute at our Team Training Christmas soirees a couple of weeks ago. For all of the bulk cards I have used the Note Cards and Envelopes as I just find it easier to have to do no cutting and scoring and I love the smaller size of them too.

 I then had an enjoyable afternoon making lots of these, a design which I really enjoyed creating.
 And then I had 2 separate sessions making lots and lots of these snowflake cards, think I made about 40 of this design in total! 
So you can see I have been pretty busy on the card making front recently! Hoping that’s it for the Christmas cards now!
