Flitter Glu & Mega Flakes

Hi Folks

Just wanted to say what a great time I had demo-ing for WOW Powders at the NEC last weekend. The stand looked great and the team really got on well. Marion Emberson was an absolute delight; so talented! She was my lunch buddy so we spent quite a bit of time together. She has been so supportive and given me some great advice - a new friendship I'll treasure!
Tania was brill as always, and with all the help we got from some of the DT members (Sue, Neil, Christine, Nikki and Sarah) the demo table was never short of new ideas being tried out. Can't wait for the next one (I hope they ask me!).

Anyhow, this Saturday I'm going up to Newcastle upon Tyne to demo for Samuel Taylors at the Pins & Needles show - a long way I know, but a friend in need and all that! I'll be demo-ing the Flitter Glu and Mega Flakes from Indigo Blu. As I've just had them into the shop I've been playing with them and they are lovely. Here is a card I made for the Stampeezee Gallery - I'm sure there will be many more to follow:

These were using the Love Is stamp by Indigo Blu and the Winter Dawn Flakes.

I also stamped and guilded 'Ella Bella' but haven't used her on a card yet - isn't she lovely?

I am thinking that although Saturday will be a long day I am going to have FUN!!!

Well that's all for now.
Thanks for stopping by,

Mothers Day Cards

Hi Bloggers

Just a quicky to show you a couple of cards I made for the Mum's for Mother's Day. I used the new Cameo set of stamps for both cards along with the Damask and Music background from WOW and of course WOW EP.

Classy mono-chrome

Subtle pink and grey

I'll be at the NEC Thursday to Sunday on the WOW Embossing Powders stand at the Hobby Crafts show. If any of you are passing please stop by and say hi - it's always good to see friendly faces.

That's all for now
Thanks for stopping by

WOW DT projects

Hi Bloggers

Just quick post to show you what I made for the WOW Powders DT Challenge this month. I chose to go with the wedding theme and made an Invitation and a Keepsake Frame:

This invite was quick and simple to do - just what you need if you have to reproduce loads of them. I used Pastel Pink and Bright White embossing powder; a bit of torn vellum and a couple of stamps from the WOW collection.

This Keepsake Frame is an altered Malma mirror from Ikea. Two colours of green acrylic paint over stamped using the WOW 'Brocade' stamp and embossed with Pastel Yellow EP. A couple of die cut swirls covered in Gold Rich Pale EP, a sentiment from Basic Grey and some flowers and metal corners.
Voila - a pretty gift or something for your own wall!

Pop on over to the WOW Powders site for more powdery inspiration.

Thanks for stopping by.

Boofle Wall Hanging

Hi Folks

Here is a wall hanging I made using some of the products available from Do Crafts at the moment:

Boofle paper, ribbon, button and die cut decoupage; sentiment from one of the Heartwarmers sheets; flower from the Capsule Collection Bloomers pack and ribbon from the Everyday Ribbons. All mounted onto one of the pages from the Basics Bracket Book. Quick, easy and effective!

Just for some contrast, here is Boofle 'grunged' up a bit!

That's all for now.
Thanks for stopping by.

Do Crafts Samples

Hi Folks

I had a lovely day demo-ing on Saturday at Shillbrook Stationary in Carterton. Michelle and Sami made me really welcome and my demo's seemed to be well received. Hubby chauffered me - just an excuse to go to the Outlet Shopping Village at Bicester - I think he's spent out!
Anyhow here are three of the sample cards I've made using the new products out in this loop:

I have to say, I really like these Michael Powell stamps. I know he designs them for cross stitch and they've made me want to get my needle out!

Well must be off now.

Thanks for stopping by
