Beginners Basics

Here are a few samples I did at the weekend at a demo. We had several ladies who were complete beginners and promised to upload some samples as they baskets of stash. They were going to be crafting all Saturday night and Sunday!!

As an aside I thought I'd share with you these snowdrops - their little dresses were just starting to uncurl to dance in the warmth of the sun yesterday

I feel a soft pastel green and snow white colour theme brewing!

Happy Stamping

To Birmingham and Back

What a funtastic week I've had....I was asked to join the Elusive Images team in Birmingham for the trade show and what a fantastic team they are. I met Helen Chilton for the first time, an inspirational woman, whose artwork was and is amazing. Helen I can't wait to see what you produce with that paint!! Those new Elusive Images stamps will be winging their way to stockists - so pop along and have a look. I've uploaded a couple of photos from the new Harlequin plates - they've got a real carnival feel to them. I can't wait to have some more free time to play with them as there are so many possibilities. Oh and there are some new glimmer mist colours and gorgeous albums on the way as well !!!

Butterflies and a Glimmer Misted Wall

It was only a few weeks ago when my friend Siggy and I had a christmas crafting marathon - well I can finally show you her beautiful aqua pencilled butterflies.

At the moment I'm waiting for some glimmer mists to dry. You would be forgiven to think they were drying on glimmer chips or card but I've spritzed them on a wall that's waiting to be painted in the dining room. I had to wait until the kids went to bed before they were exposed to their mother cooing and oooohing at a wall - yet another Shirley Valentine moment!! The brain has now engaged in embossed and velvet flocked wallpapers and which combination of delectable colours to go for. The plan needs further exploration !!

Will keep you updated.... Happy Glimping ( Glimmer misting and Stamping! )

A Sneeky Peek - It's Official

Here at home the crafting area has officially taken over the whole of the downstairs. What with samples for trade shows, friends birthdays and the distraction of the snow - after all you have to demonstrate how to sledge to your kids several times before letting them have a go don't you!! things are a little manic round here and I love it.

The Butterfly Collage stamps are from Elusive Images and are launched next week. They have all the quality and elegance I've come to expect from EI and will set your mind a dance with artistic possibilities.

Have a snowy crafty weekend
