Are you a paper hoarder? do you just love designer paper and hate to use it? do you find you buy too much but still want it all? If you answered yes to these questions I have a bit of an offer for you.

If you bought all of the NEW papers  (with the exception of the colour family papers and wood textures) it would cost you £166.50, WOWSERS, thats a lot of paper.

PAPER SHARE, get all these papers for just £41 or £45 posted to you. part packs so less left at the end of the year. We all know that the catalogue photos don't do the papers justice, they are lovely so why not have a little of everything.

The order for the paper share will be placed on June 20th, Limited places, first come first served. If you need more details please message me

A post with no pictures!

I'm sorry folks there won't be any posts for a few days.
I have slipped a disk again! So flat on my back bored to tears. Lots of planning going on in my head but backs are a slow process and I know from experience that it will be at least a month before I am back to normal.
I do hope to be back in the studio next week but that is probably my positive thoughts over reality. Please pop back and check in, its lovely to know that people read the blog. k x

Coffee Cafe make number 2

 This time the year before last (I think) a new stamp set in the catalogue had ice cream cones and ice cream in it. At training we made a card like an ice cream parlour with the cones sat on a counter. I can't find my card to show you other than this one from the training on  Pinterest
Although I hadn't any measurements I decided I wanted to do one of my own as a coffee kiosk. This is what I came up with......

Not much stamping, lots of fussy cutting from the beautiful designer paper.
The designer paper is still available for another 3 days as is the stamp set and dies with 10% discount.

Ooops the designer paper is sold out!

Wow, wow, wow

I don't very often go to workshops or classes for paper-crafting but a friend Kylie of Fox and Magpie was holding one making giant paper flowers. I needed to see how she made them.
The class/workshop was a ladies night event on the last Friday of the month. A girlie night out, you could take wine and there was a very relaxed atmosphere.

We did make giant flowers. They are stunning and really quite simple. Lots of cutting out but that wasn't a problem. Glue with a hot glue gun or tombo, some paper curling and hey presto a giant flower emerged. I went with a friend who is getting married this summer she now wants a dozen for the wall behind her wedding cake! Guess who is doing the cutting out!

They really do look stunning don't they.
