Onstage – WOW

Had a fantastic time in Birmingham with 600 fellow demonstrators! We celebrated Stampin’ Up 30 year anniversary. Such a wonderful company who values their demonstrators whether they are running a business or crafters who like the discount! They spoilt us so much I will post all the gifts next time, but needless to say we were ladened!

We saw and played with lots of new products which was great fun. The new catalogue has such exciting and beautiful stamp sets, papers and embellishments, I cannot wait to buy them and use with my lovely crafters.

Christmas is definitely coming …

As usual I am playing catch up with my Christmas preparations as somehow the weeks leading up to Christmas seem to speed up!  I am also busy sharing my love for paper crafting with local crafters at my workshops and class sessions.  So far people are loving the new Autumn / Winter catalogue.  Here’s a sneak peak!

If you want a copy then please contact me as I would love to send you one and introduce you to the fabulous products and projects.  If you wanted to buy some of the goodies then head over to my online shop.


No it’s not the name of a new dinosaur although it does sound a bit like that!  I have been using my Stamparatus to great effect making repeat images and bulk stamping in preparation for On Stage Swaps and Christmas.  It is a great tool and so easy to use, but gives your projects a professional look and significantly cuts the making time for bulk projects.  If you want to try this product just come to a class and happy to let you use mine to see if you love it as much as I do.

Here are a couple of videos to help you understand what it can do for you – enjoy!



This year is going to mark the 1 year anniversary of moving to East Sussex.  What a fabulous year it has been; exploring this beautiful county and making new friends!  We still have enjoyed visits back to Surrey, but with the summer being so glorious have made the most of living by the sea.  The dogs have truly loved the experience too.


So Halloween is going to be celebrated with friends and all their children enjoying sugary treats!  I found this lovely inspiration from Stampin’ Up to make and take with me for something a little different.




Lots of lovely items have been added to the Clearance Rack at up to 60% discount.  Go and grab a bargain, I love that my crafty budget goes so much further with these bargains on offer.  These items will sell out fast at these prices, some examples shown below go and check out the whole range. Happy Shopping!!
