Once a Crafter, Always a Crafter

Sometimes life can take us down a different road and it can be a little more exciting than the usual one. And that's exactly what's happened with me over the last year actually. Some of you may know that as well as being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator I've also become a Scentsy Consultant and I have a nice little business that runs parallel with Stampin' Up! Scentsy if you've not heard of it before are Wickless Warmers with wonderful Fragrance Waxes. Being a candle lover this has taken me and many, many more by storm but as this is my Creative Blog, I won't harp on about it but point you in the direction of where you can find out more information, and you know you can always email me too if you're interested. www.jodumbleton.scentsy.co.uk
So as the title says 'Once a Crafter, Always a Crafter', I am still being creative, just not as much on the internet as I have previously, and my Stampin' Up! business is still going strong too - there's no fear of me ever giving that up.
Right then, now I've got that out the way, how about some projects??
I shared this picture of some cute crackers I made with the NEW Envelope Punch Board on my Facebook Page at the weekend, aren't they adorable!
Now I'm just sorting and editing some better photos and I'll show them tomorrow along with the video I watched on how to make them. I'll also add the measurements for the size that I came up with, which is rather a handy size too.
So see you tomorrow for the details!

I'm back with a little Papillion Potpourri

What an AMAZING summer it's been! I've had a blast which started off back in July at the US Convention in Salt Lake City for 4 days, then onto the Incentive Trip for 5 absolutely fantastic days and then finally we extended our stay and went to Las Vegas for 3 days. The whole trip was an experience I will never forget. If you managed to follow my trip on Facebook you will have experienced some of it with me - especially the trip to Kanab which is the manufacturing plant of Stampin' Up! I was posting the whole process as we went along,and that was just a small part of the my awesome trip. 

And the rest of my summer holiday with my family has been wonderful too. This good weather makes such a difference to our lives doesn't it?

OK,  so now Jake is back to school and I've had my first All Day Stamp-a-Stack Event of the new crafting year, I'm back to share some projects with you.

First card from yesterdays Stamp-a-Stack was using Patpillion Potpourri with the matching Elegant Butterfly Punch and Bitty Butterfly Punch. The greeting is stamped in the Encore Gold Inkpad from the NEW autumn/Winter catalogue along with a hint of the Gold Foil paper from the catalogue too. I can see metalics is going to be BIG this year. I'm chuffed about that - I love of a bit of bling.

Time now for me to knuckle down and get organised for another class tonight and then my last one on Friday. It's then only a matter of days before I'm off to Salt Lake City for the 25th Anniversary US Convention - I can't wait!   Leave me a comment if you're going to be there too, you never know we may find each other and I would love to say 'hello'!
