Long awaited

It's been an awful long time since I've actually posted without advertising one thing or another but by golly have I had a busy couple of months! So without too much blethering on I suppose it's about time I showed a project.
Back in September I went to a training event at High Wycombe. Whenever there's a gathering of Demo's we always swap samples and this was my swap. I know, it's those pesky birdhouses again but made into this very cute Christmas version. Wouldn't they look good on a festive table instead of crackers? Filled with those delicious Lindor chocolate balls......yum!
I've updated the template of this so you can get 2 birdhouses from 1 sheet of A4. Please feel free to use this template but if you make one and showcase on your blog or use in a class, please direct people back here to where you got the template from. Instructions on how to put the birdhouse together can be found here.
I'll be back soon with some Halloween projects...
Thanks and enjoy!

Stampin' Up! Experience Day

Sorry I've been MIA for what seems like ages but it's all been in the name of Stampin' Up! August and September have been very busy months for me and I really had to give my full attention to my wonderful customers. I've had workshops, events and what with the Last Chance List...that went down really well! I'm not surprised though with all those bargains. The half price cardstock and inkpads weren't to be sniffed at now were they? Hope you all managed to nab yourself a nice load of stash - even I stocked up on a few items I was sad to see disappear. Anyway, we're now into October and of course that means we have a NEW Idea Book & Catalogue to oooh and aaah over. There's lots of gorgeous new stamp sets, beautiful patterend papers and I need them all!! Also the NEW colours that have been introduced, wooow... they're fabulous! Sorry I've no samples to show you just yet as I'm saving them for an event in a few weeks...
10.30PM - 4PM
Advance Tickets - £3
On the Day - £4.50
Last year I had my Open House, which was a great success, but this year I decided I'd have something a little larger. Something that everyone could come along to, not just my customers, and experience a little bit of what I love - Stampin' Up!
There'll be Make 'n' Take's, Demonstrations from myself and my team members, samples and displays of the new products, a Free Door Prize entry and some fabulous Raffle Prizes. Of course there will also be the obligatory home made cakes and tea served by my dear Mum.
If you're interested in coming along to this event and would like further information or to purchase a ticket, then please email me at
That's it for now but hope to be back with the new template for the birdhouses in the next few days. Also thanks for stickin' with me. I know I've not given you much in the way of eye candy lately but I hope to rectify that real soon.
Take care!
