Botanicals Bonanza ...... Stampin' Up!

Hello There,

I wanted to share with you one of my All day events that I had recently,  This class was run four times due to its popularity, all the attendees went home with a bag full of stash, which included the Botanicals Bundle, a Free matching Stamp Set as it was held during Sale a Bration time, A Beautiful wooden hanging Heart Frame to decorate, we made an abundance of items, Cards, Gift ideas you name it we made it, ...  

Here is the table set up for one sitting

I wanted to show the ladies that we didn't have to stick to the colours of the Bundle, so we didn't use the DSP at all, but as it come in the bundle it was theres to take home with them,..

For one project we cased the beautiful Box that was made by a Million Dollar Sales Patty Bennett, It really is beautiful and the Ladies loved it as much as I did.

I call it the Million Dollar Box....

The next project was a card and Matching bottle gift box......

and then we decorated the Frame, this you have seen before in a previous post.

I will be doing more Product based classes where you take home the stamp sets or the bundle in this case in the price, If you would love to come craft with me, please do shout me , I would love you to come along...

Preparing for Stamping' Up Onstage Local event...

More on my Wow Week,

 I would like to share with you the gifts I made for my Team as a small Thank you for their Hard work.    I had 19 of my team there at Onstage Local and 13 are in my direct 1st Line. Also I treated them to a Lush Afternoon Tea at the Hotel I was staying at because they are worth it!

 I found some super mugs with fabulous sayings on them and filled them with some yummy Chocolate Jazzy stars and sourced some beautiful Fairy Trinkets that were just perfect as my team name is Fairie Stamping Starlets, Fairie as thats my Brand Name, Stamping as I am sure you all know, and Starlets as I am Stamping Star.

I made a box for them to sit in, Fru Fru'd them up with ribbon, Stamping and Trinkets, I do hope they liked them...   Here they are all packed up...

Look at this Gorgeous Trinket

Here are some photos of some of the team enjoying their treat we had a fabulous room all to ourselves... We also had an honoury Guest with us too, can't leave a Star behind...

WOW! Well that was the week that was...... Guess who came to Stamp with us #imbringingbirthdaysback

I have had the best week ever in a very long time, It's rather surreal to be honest.. There has been so much fun and amazing moments that I will have to spread over a couple of posts but I can tell you it ended with Stampin' Up Onstage,  New Catalogue WOWZERS!! TRULY WOWZERS!!

Well where shall I start right at the beginning I think,  It started on Monday at my regular Card and a Cuppa sessions at Finches Bakery Cafe in Orpington High Street,  Every 2nd and 4th Monday of each month between 10am and 12pm, it's a drop in session where you come and take a quick card and have a drink of your choice all for £5, it's getting very popular, hence moving from once a month to twice a month...     Anyways whilst we were finished with the session the Ladies and I were chatting crafts as you do, when a kerfuffle outside was happing,   Oooooh I said what on earths going on out there,   Well the Ladies were cock a hoop when who was outside, actually came in and asked me to ask him to come up to the section where we craft at the back of the Cafe.  Shall I show you who came to stamp with us.

Boris handing out his leaflets for voting in the new Mayor of London

Then me sucking up the courage to ask him to stamp with us

He was very impressed with our display, and very interested in what we were doing....

How amazing was that, he is Larger than Life an amazing sport, and whilst I was nervous to ask him  after all the photos were done with the Ladies would he come Stamp with us he was right up for it!!

Big thanks to my downline and fabulous Friend Linda Kasparian for taking photos and a little video which I will share tomorrow,,,

Do pop backI have creative swaps to share, team gifts to share and Onstage photos to share.

Hello Honey Just for you #StampinUp


Hello There,
I wanted to share another simple creation today, I have had funny kinda week last week, I went up for a day to a fellow Demo and Friend Julie Kettlewell and had a fab day in her wonderful Craft Den that she has just opened, its a fabulous Dream to have and she has just made hers come true, So I wanted to support her and take a class with her  up in Leeds.

Myself and my Team me member and Great Friend Linda Kasparian took the trip up there, we done it in one day, phew what a day,,,  It was amazing so Thanks Julie for having us and Thanks Linda for coming and keeping me company, love ya both…

But when I got back I was slammed in the face with a rotten head cold AGAIN, It's knocked me for six I have to say, not been out since we got back from Leeds, But needed to get some makes done for Blog Hop Saturday gone, and for the blog this week, I am trying to be more consistent,   It's hard with the life I have , but Life is hard for everyone, ..

So what did I make I hear you say,

 Well with the notecards still sitting on the table, and the scraps lying there keeping them company and some flowers and leaves I stamped and cut at Julie's I set about making this Just For You card..  I love to screw my flowers up , I feel it brings them to life, adds a bit of much needed Texture too…

The Stamp set is from the Watercolour Words Stamp Set..  The Colours are Hello Honey, hence the title and Mint Macaron,  the strip of Black & White DSP is from the Everyday Chic  DSP Pack and the Enamel Dots are form the Party suite in the Spring Catty,

Do pop back very soon I have some beauties to share from a recent all day class I had this week...
