Poppin Pastels

Well I think Poppin Pastels is what this technique is called.
I have to admit that my Stampin' Pastels don't see the light of day very often. It's not that I don't like them, more a case that I don't really know how to use them but I'm chuffed with how this one turned out. It's not even the neatest of cards - could of done with better measuring but at the time I was just 'playing'.
I think these hidden gems will be making a bit more of an appearance in future.

New Product?

It's not long now till we can unveil the absolutely a-maze-ing NEW MINI CATALOGUE! You will love it! There's so many fabulous new things that when I received my pre-order at the beginning of the month, I ws stuck as to what to use first! It was like Christmas had come early - it's ALL gorgeous and I'm now broke. ha ha! The MINI goes live for ordering on Friday 1st April and I'll be sending the catalogues to my customers over the next few days. If you'd like to receive one please email me at jodumbleton@aol.co.uk - there's also a special offer you might be interested in.
Back to the moment and here's a little gift I've been giving to my hostesses lately. It's a cute little card wallet with matching notelets inside. I seem to be in a brights mood lately so I Used 'Funky Four' with the Play Date DSP. If you'd like to host a workshop and receive a handmade gift as well as an EXCLUSIVE FREE stamp set and additional FREE product, please email me at jodumbleton@aol.co.uk to arrange a convenient date and time. With the launch of this fabulous new MINI it's the best time to be a hostess and you will love what I have to demonstrate for you.

Monsters Rock!

Sorry for the long absence - you wouldn't believe the amount of ironing I've had to catch up on! I've now found my sofa and unrooted the ironing board from the lounge. Boy am I glad to see the back of that lot, it will NEVER get like that again! So with a bit more organisation in my life, I hope to do a bit more crafting - yippeee!! I do have lots of events and workshops over the next 2 months but fingers crossed my goal is to update my blog at least once a week. Thank you to my loyal followers for bearing with me. :) And today I have some projects to show you...Love these cute monsters from 'Make a Monster'! The invite was inspired by my fabulous friend and fellow Demo, Jules. Such a neat idea and it uses the Cheers and Wishes set that's currently on offer this month with the 30% off - a bargain at £11.87! Great for all sorts of invites to be honest. The peek a boo card, not sure if that's what it's called but that's what I'm calling it anyway, is very similar to this one I did a while back here. He's such a cheeky chap peering through don't you think?

And then there's these groovy bookmarks. Emma, another fellow Demo did a tutorial of how to make them on In Love with Stamping and they're brilliant! A really simple idea and kids will love them - at least Jake does and he's desperate to make some Easter ones to give to his school friends.

That's it from me today. I've a Team Training day this Saturday with my downline. Hope to show you one of the projects we're making next week but the others will have to wait till April. I'm such a tease!

Have a good one and see ya soon!

March has arrived

I can't believe we're now into March! I've been so busy over the last few months with Sale-a-bration - weren't the FREE sets wonderful?! I hope you all managed to get what you wanted and I'm sure you will get lots of use from them. So into another month and another promotion. This month it's up to 30% off selected stamp sets and accessories. More bargains! Click on the link in my right hand sidebar to have a look at what's been discounted. It's a quieter week for me this week, Jake back to school and I'm slowly discovering I have a sofa under the pile of ironing. I feel like I haven't done any creative crafting 'for me' for awhile so hopefully I will have something to show you over the next day or two. I've a few more events coming up over the next couple of months, one of them being a fundraiser. Details will be coming soon and if you're local, I hope you can come along, it's at a well know venue on Sunday 10th April. Watch this space....
