Not quite good enough

Hi there

I have been really busy this week with classes and playing around with ideas for projects for my Christmas in July event.

Although I have already made a decision on a number of the projects we will be doing, I am still working on the rest. In the selection process I play around with ideas, make the samples and then decide if I like them enough for them to go through as definites.

SO..............todays card is one of those samples I made, using the gorgeous Serene Snowflakes stamp set and the oh so lovely Dasher stamp. The card is "ok" I suppose but it just doesn't have enough wow factor to make it through for my ladies to create on 31st July. So back to the drawing board for me to come up with something better lol

At this moment in time there are only 4 places left for my Christmas in July event and I will need to allocate those last 4 places on a strictly first come first served basis.

The event takes place at the AB & D Centre in Bacup on Saturday 31st July 10am -4pm (Registration at 9.45am) The cost is £25 to include packed lunch, refreshments and all materials needed to create the 6 projects. There will also be spot prizes throughout the day and a grand raffle before we finish.

More Rich Razzleberry

Hi there
Today I am sharing the last couple of cards I've made with the all new Cottage Wall papers and Rich Razzleberry cardstock and inks. I kept with the same colour scheme as the box set I am making with my class ladies tomorrow so these cards will fit in the box with the three from the class, therefore making 6 in total.

Well must dash today as I have STILL not done my class notes and photos and as class is at 10am I do not have a massive lot of time left.
I will be back tomorrow to show you a pretty little card I have made using the baby wipe and re-inkers technique.

At Last ! ! ! !

AT LAST !!!!!!!!I have finally managed to get something made that I am able to share with you. This combination of gift bag and card are using the brand new "Rich Razzleberry" cardstock and the Cottage Wall paper which is gorgeous. This project came about whilst I was making up the class packs for my box and card class for Tuesday. I was tidying away the offcuts and could not resist just having a little hour later and I had made this set and 3 other cards too but it was very naughty of me as I still have to do the photo's and class notes now.

I have not been idle whilst I have been away I have actually been ridiculously busy with the process of creating projects for my All Day Christmas in July. I have thought of nothing else but Christmas creations for the past couple of weeks and now have quite a nice collection of projects from which I will make my final selection. Obviously I cannot show any of those items as yet but I may show the ones that don't make it as projects for the day event once I have made my decision. I am planning to have 6 mini projects for the day so look out ladies you are going to be worked hard on 31st July.

I have just 4 places remaining for this event so if you are interested please contact me by the end of this month.

3x3 Love Notes and holder

Hi there
Just a quick post today as I am heading off up to Harrogate to help my downline with her first Stampin' Up! All Day Event. So Bournemouth last Saturday with my upline and Harrogate this Saturday with my certainly keeps you busy but it's great to be part of this team.

Anyway my project today is a set of 3x3 LoveNotes and a cute little tote to house them. I have seen a few of these on the internet and never got round to trying one..........that was until Jenny challenged us this week to make a quick 3x3 set that could be used as a hostess gift. I made this one using the brand new Soft Suede cardstock and matching Ink Pad (this brown is so different to Close to Cocoa and Chocolate Chip but it's gorgeous) I added some Bridesmaid Speciality Paper and the Flutterby Butterfly Stamp. So there you have it. . .simple, quick, fun to make but a lovely end result.

My Upline and My Friend

Jenny and I
Jane, Val and myself

Jenny and Jo

Sorry I have not been around for a few days, I have been away to Bournemouth for a mini holiday. I travelled down to Dorset to help my SU Upline Jenny with her All Day Extravaganza Event.
Jenny held this event jointly with a fellow Stampin' Up Demonstrator Jo, who had her downline Helen to help out too. The 3 projects were all stunning and everyone seemed to have a lovely time.
I have been part of Jenny's team for 2 years and she has become my very good friend. She constantly inspires me with her work and strengthens me with her support. Making the special effort to travel down and help has enabled me to give something back and say "thanks for everything Jen"

I had an extra wonderful time as I also got to spend some time with two other members of our Stampin' Up team Jane and Val (like myself, they are Jenny's downline) This morning we have all just booked for the Stampin Up Convention event for November so will now be counting down the days til we are all together again. We may not be the biggest Stampin' Up team out there but we sure know how to have a ball when we get together and we are a "little" loud hee hee. It was lovely to see you girls and can't wait for our Hilton High Jinks hee hee
