On Stage Event


Hello Crafters,

On Saturday I attended the Stampin' Up! On Stage event in Solihull.  I was in the company of some lovely ladies and had a lovely time (having my sister Suezan Brain lose her very brave battle to brain cancer last month, I needed a pick up).

There were lots of Awards and there were several Pinkie that stole the show.

Just for attending I received a bag and some free stamp sets, which i will be showing off next week.

Stampin' Up! will be having another on stage event in Aptil 2018, if you wish to join us, contact me for details on how to join my team.

Thank you for looking at my blog.

Hello Crafters,

Just like lot of people out there, I buy the designer series papers but can not think of anything to do with them.

So these are my take using the Delightful Daisy dsp and a thinlet I had.

Ooooohhhh just had an idea using circles! Off to find more dsp.

Stitching Kit Christmas Cards


Hello Crafters,

I brought a retired stitching kit from Stampin' Up! for £8.70 which makes 18 Christmas cards. I did not have the original stamps they used on the kit but found few of mine that fitted.

The cards above are the cards you make from the kit. But you know me not wanting to waste anything.


These two cards I made by cutting around the waste trees and stars after your pressed thm out fir the originsl cards.  You only get 6 flags and an extra two banners but I cut my on and they look ok. So I managed to make another 12 tree cards and 6 star cards.


But then you get 18 envelope inserts, I do not put inserts in my envelopes so they became card fronts.  And I made another 18 cards.

So all in all 54 cards made out of a pack for 18 cards and all for under a tenner.

I still have a couple of the kits left if anyone would like to buy one.

Thank you for looking at my blog.

Silver Foil




Hello Crafters,

Well as I had the embosing folders out I thought I would have a play with some silver foil.

If you have thin foil back it with a piece of card so that the foil does not rip. Yep I did manage to do that so pinched some out the kitcen which was thicker which worked better. 

I went over the leaves folder with embossing ink and black embossing powder.

Thank you for looking at my blog.
