Pegs again!

I've been busy in my craft room making packets of pegs to sell at upcoming Christmas craft events.  These cute pegs are also proving a hit in workshops.

On Saturday I'll be having a peg making extravaganza at my house.  You have 1 hour from the moment you arrive to decorate as many as you can for only £5!  Arrive any time between 10am and 11.30am.

For the men...

Had a play with the stamp set Need for Speed and the Well Worn papers.

The Decorative Label Punch is so versatile for creating small shapes as well as the standard one it punches.  To do this, use some tape runner to stick a long piece of scrap  paper to your first punch out, then position and then punch.

Christmas on my mind...

Last week was a busy Christmas week.  I held the NOEL letters class at my house twice, and been making the odd Christmas themed card.  Here is one I cased from Julie's blog HERE.


Been playing with my new Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder - I love it, it's so luxurious! It turns plain card into something quite lovely.

There are lots of designs in the pack that can be used for other occasions.

NOEL - Christmas Decor

Yes, it will soon be that time of year!
I've already seen some Christmas decorations hanging up in a supermarket.

Thought it would be nice to decorate some letters with Stampin' Up! paper and accessories.  They measure 5 inches tall and would look great propped on a mantelpiece.



If you would like to do a class where we make these - there will be another designer paper options like the nostalgic Holly Berry Bouquet...


and Flirtatious


and Cheerful Treat

We will also make a card to match


If you would like to do a set of letters please book a place ASAP, as I need to order the letters in.

The cost of the class is £14 and will include the materials and 4 wooden letters.

You can order additional letters if you would like to continue making them at home, they cost £1.50 each.

Crafty Party Time!


Last Saturday I did my first Crafty Party for a young lady turning 8.  She had 8 other guests and we made 3 items, a keyring, a bracelet and a notebook.

The girls were lovely and worked really hard on their creations,

Here is a picture of their notebooks and bracelets, a huge thanks to mummy "L" for sending it to me!  Look at all those yummy Stampin' Up! colours!


Please get in touch if you would like me to run a Crafty Party for your child's birthday.

Anniversary card and retiring items...

Had some time to play last night after I finished the preparation for a birthday Crafty Party.  Used the stamps from the retiring (boohoo) Hostess Set Punch Potpourri and Something to Celebrate.



It's been an exciting and traumatic week for Stampin Up hostesses in the UK as they've revealed which stamp sets and other items are retiring.  This basically means that on the 1st October they will no longer be available and a new idea book and catalogue will be in operation. Now that's the fun part, we've already had a sneak preview of the new catalogue, and although we're sad to see some favourites go, we're really excited to be able to share some lovely new products with you.

As usual, the quality is second to none, the colour co ordination is impeccable and the attention to detail is beautiful.  I am awaiting delivery of some new products to play with and show you.

Before that, just wanted to encourage you to look at the retiring list HERE, and a few of the items going AND that are reduced!  Please contact me ASAP to place an order, as these items can sell out fast!



Neighbourhood Wheel was £8.50 now £5.10



Sweet Birthday stamp was £6.95 now £5.21

Basic Phrases was £33.95 now £25.46
