Christmas Cracker Wow Swap for #Onstage2016 Stampin Up! Plus How to Video.....

Hello there!

It's been a whirlwind the last few weeks, what with Allday Class events just before Stampin Up's Onstage Local event,..   Making Swaps and such...

I organised a Wow Swap with some fellow Demos, I had a fab hanging tress Decoration in mind but when I went back to purchase more Bauble Jars they had totally sold out, So stressed was'nt in int, then I happened across an article in Do Craft magazine, and my Wow swap was born.

 I used the construction as a Base and off I went in creating mode, It uses the envelope punch board to make a match box,  and then I covered in The This is Christmas Specialty DSP that you can get in the Anuual Catalogue,  Code is 141628 this paper is thinner than noraml and you get 24 sheets, in the pack rather than the normal 12 , you get 4 each of 6 double-sided designs, .. and its not just for Christmas, one design  is a beautiful sheet music.. And the Stitched with Cheer Stamp Set Code 142182.

  If you wish to support me and purchase any of these items form my online shop on the right hand side, please be sure to use the Hostess club Code for a Product gift from me, Last mont was the Tin of Cards, .. Also for every £25 you spend online with me this month you will go into a draw to win a Stamp set from the upcoming Spring Catalogue, See Previous Post!!

My downline and Friend Linda Kasparian, from A pocket full of crafts HERE (please do pop over to her blog she does make beautiful stuff)  Nags me to death to do videos, so we got together yesterday and did one showing you how to make my Wow Swap!!  It's not the most professional of videos but hey it does what it says on the tin and thats what matter, its fun and I want it to remain that way!!
Inside I put a small slab of Salted caramel Hotel Chocolat!! Yum!!!!  Check out these, and further down is the video on how to make one or two!! You will want to make more than one!!


Here is the Video, please be sure to let me know if you enjoyed it....


Bye for now, xxxx

#Onstage2016 Swap, Stampin Up! And Giveaway......

Hello There,

I had a fabulous time at Stampin Up's #onstage2016 event, celebrating both mine and my teams achievements, I ranked in the Top 13 in the U.K for Leadership, and we have nearly 2,000 Demos in the U.K and this made me super proud as it means I am doing my Job right, and mentoring my fab team to acheive their Goals, be it in Business or Hobby!!   So Yes super proud of them all!!

I love these events as we see many many demos from all over the country and world really as we had Canadian and American Demos come to ours held at Telford..  And we get to swap our creations with each other which is a fab way to get talking to people and meeting those you only see online in other facebook groups or craft Forums, ...

 We get to see the new upcoming products and catalogues, I have One Stamp Set to give away  so for every £25 you spend through my Online shop your name will go in the draw, so the more you sepdn the more times your name is in there, and 5 Spring/Summer Catalogues, for the first 5 Online Customers, which will be posted to you from me on the day of your order...

YOu will find the code and link in the right hand side bar .....    Would you like a chance to win this Stamp Set not available until 4th Jan 2017 and a copy of the Spring /Summer catty.   Check this out!

Right onto some inspiration for you, My general swap was a case from the SU Demo Stampin Success magazine that we get to help in our business, I loved the card but did'nt have all the components to make it so gave it my own twist...

It uses one of the Stamp Sets on the 25% off offer this month, So that'a fab,... Its Called  Greetings from santa, A very versatile Set.

The colourways I used were Garden Green, Pool Party &Whisper White.  The DSP was scraps from another project that I made for my Pinecone Bundle Class! (I love that nothing goes to waste in my Craft Studio).





I use the Second generation Technique for this card, and I love how it has turned out, it was a card that I used in my Taster Sessions at my Card and a Cuppa at Finch House Cafe in Orpington on the 2nd and 4th Monday of every month between 10 am til 12pm..  It is a drop in session so please do pop along anytime and have a go...
