The Autumn Winter Catalogue has arrived!!!

It's offical, Christmas is coming and the weather today has certainly been a reminder of that... So the cold snap that we're experiencing here in Oxfordshire has signaled that it must be the perfect time to launch the brand spanking new Autumn Winter Catalogue!

If you haven't found a cuppa and some chocolate, I suggest you grab some now and prepare your bank balance for what you're about to see ;-)





If you'd like a physical copy of the catalogue, then drop me an email and we'll sort one out for you.



So if a brand new catalogue wasn't exciting enough, I have some special offers for you too!


As a special gift from me, I'm offering each of you free postage on orders over £30 placed through my online store between now and midnight on Monday 5th September. (Postage costs are refunded via paypal after purchase) Don't forget to use the fabulous Online Shopper Code to get a free gift too.


If free shipping wasn't enough, Stampin' Up! are offering you 25% off selected products during September. The items on sale change each week, so here's the current offering.



 
Right then, I've got to run and get prepping for my All day Christmas class. Still a couple of days to book your place....

Happy crafting!

Thoughtful branches sympathy card

Hi di ho peeps!

Well it's been a few weeks since I checked in here on my blog. The hubster and I took the boys off to Cornwall for a week and had lots of fun exploring castles, houses and the beach in between the rain showers. I've been enjoying the sunshine from my desk in the office (yes I'm lucky enough to be able to see out of a window in the office!!) fingers crossed the sunshines this bank holiday weekend.



Have you fallen in love with the thoughtful branches bundle yet???? If you haven't, I'm sure it's only a matter of time...but be quick about it, the set is only available during August, so you've got just under a week to secure your bundle before it's too late.

I find I never have a sympathy card whenever I need one, so here's one I've created using this gorgeous set and fingers crossed I wont need it for a very long time.







This card really sparkles, it's soooo pretty. Perfect way to show someone how much they care during a really difficult time.

I've made a little video to try and show you how much it sparkles as you can't really tell from the photo.



Everything I've used to make this card can be found in the product list below (click on the item to be taken directly to it in my shop).

So if you want to get your hands on this gorgeous set of stamps and dies, then check out my online shop. Don't forget to use the hostess code everytime you order and you'll get some free product as a gift from me.

Hostess Code: Z43NZDST 
(expires 2nd September)


Everyone that purchases the thoughtful branches stamps, dies or the bundle will get a step by step tutorial on how to make these projects too.




Happy crafting!

Baby Bear Card

Happy Saturday!

Today we've been back up to Nottingham to see the out-laws. We left home in glorious sunshine and two hours later we arrived having spent the majority of our car jouney in the pooring rain. Alas we had no coats and got rather wet just running from the car to the house. You do have to love the British weather. Needless to say my two boys had a lovely time with their grandparents and got to see great mama too. Now its back to reality and the prospect of a day of cleaning and tidying tomorrow. Oh to have a cleaner!

I have another card to share with you and it features, my favourite set of the catalogue - baby bear! He's so increadibly cute, I couldn't resist buying him straight away.




How cute is he???? Can't wait to make more cards with this gorgeous boy!

If you want to order any of the items used in today's card then just click on the product picture and it'll take you straight to the item in my online shop. Don't forget to use the hostess code to earn yourself some free product and you'll get a £4.50 voucher with every £45 you spend thanks to our bonus days promotion that's running until 31st July.

Those of you that follow my facebook page or click on the upcoming events tab may have noticed that I've restarted my classes. My first class here in Thame is on  the 21st July and we'll be making the pretty kitty cards that featured on my blog on Tuesday. Booking closes tomorrow, so if you'd like to join us, you'd better let me know sharpish!

Happy Crafting!

Grateful Bunch



Happy 4th July to my American friends. I hope you’ve all been enjoying a lovely day. I’ve always loved 4th July because I can get lots of work done in the office as my colleagues are on holiday!

So last week I did a stampin’ Up! party for the first time in years. I’ve always run regular classes, but not many parties but it was so much fun and it made me realise that I really should do more. So if you would like to have a crafty night in with your friends, then drop me a line and we’ll get a date in the diary.

Everyone that came to the party made this card. Now it’s quite ambitious for new crafters but they all produced beautiful versions that they were really proud of.



Supplies:
Cardstock – Sahara Sand, Very Vanilla, Pretty in Pink
Ink – Pretty in Pink, Sahara Sand
Stamps- Grateful Bunch
Tools & accessories – Pearls, Tombow glue, acrylic blocks and Blossom Punch.

Thanks for stopping by, see you again soon!
