I'm stil here...

Hi everyone, hope you had a lovely Christmas.

Sorry for being MIA lately, things are still pretty rough here and I'm finding it hard to stay motivated so will be taking some time out to re-charge.

I am still here though! And even if I'm not blogging you can still get in touch : - especially with a very important Stampin' Up! event starting tomorrow... eek!

I wanted to share a fun little project I cased from the current Stampin' Up! catalogue which is the cutlery pouch. So fun and surprisingly easy to make.

It would be fun to have on the table for any up coming festivities.

I will be back tomorrow to kick start that special event !

Thanks for stopping by,
take care.

Want to Sale-A-Brate with me?

Afternoon! Told you I'd be back

Lovely sentiments in a versatile font with some little motifs in there too!

This one is called Bliss.

Isn't it gorgeous? So so pretty, I can think of all sorts of projects to use this on.

Love this set, and I was lucky enough to get my hands on these stamps early so have already had a play!

Now, if you download the flyer these cards may look familiar!

I loved case-ing them, and the colours are delicious.

Really lovely stamps, once I started I couldn't stop and duplicated them again and again.

Xmas tag

Morning everyone, hope you're all well.

Just a quick post to share a tag I've made and intend to duplicate for my gift wrapping.

It's really simple, just a Crumb Cake base, some scraps of DSP and ribbon. The sentiment is from the Level 3 Occasional Quotes set.

And on a personal note, still not feeling 100% but hopefully I'll be back to normal soon - after all, the Liverpool/Wirral demo's are meeting up tomorrow for a takeaway/Christmas Crafty/Secret Santa night so must be on form :D

Thanks for stopping by,
take care.

Just believe watercolour

Hi all, hope you're having a good day so far.

Sorry for not updating recently, it's been a tough couple of weeks with a few things taking my attention away from crafting and to be honest I've not really felt like doing anything never mind making a card (haven't started on my Christmas cards yet and don't really want to think about them!)

Things are getting a bit too much and I need a break.
Hopefully I will be back crafting and blogging soon.

Here's a card I've been meaning to show you, it's using the watercolour paper and Just Believe stamp set. Again, it is inspired by the fabulous Monica. Whenever I lose my mojo I pop over to a few of my fellow Stampin' Up! demo's blog and they are sure to kick start it.

I coloured the stamp in with my markers and sprayed with water, then stamped onto the watercolour paper.

Hope you like it and sorry for the downer, I'm sure I'll be back to normal soon.

Thanks for stopping by,
take care.
