I'm having an Open House on Friday to showcase the new Annual catalogue from Stampin up.
If you are based in North Staffordshire/South Cheshire please contact me for details if you would like to attend.

The picture shows mini handbags that we will be making. These are very cute and made from a piece  of 6 x 6 in paper, 4 brads and some scraps of card. They would make perfect stocking fillers with a lip balm or small sweet treat inside.
I am offering a kit with full instructions and all the paper.card, and brads you need to make 48 of these handbags yourself for  £17.50 including UK postage. Contact me if you are interested.

Snow swirled is a new set this year and very versatile as it is great with contemporary colours or more classic ones. The set includes 2 greeting, 3 snowflakes and a lacy tree and costs  £17.95 in clear mount or £21.95 in wood mount.

Here is another example using the new midnight muse in colour.

I had wonderful intentions last night to make a cascade card ... and then my daughter announced it was her friend's birthday and I had promised a set of tags to use on a photoboard. So that was my evening gone and although I was quite impressed to complete 6 double sided chipboard tags in about an hour I was less impressed with the mess I made! I had stamp sets, ink pads, paper, cardstock and dies liberally sprayed over 2 tables and the floor ! I am sure many of you are used to this, it takes twice as long to tidy up as to make the thing in the first place.

So this is my offering for you today - a pretty quick and smple card. It uses lots of my new goodies though - the new papillon potpourri stamp set and matching punch, fancy fan folder, and teeny tiny sentiments. The colour is raspberry ripple with pink pirouette brayered onto the fancy fan folder.

I have been eyeing teeny tiny sentiments up for a long time and  choose this as one of my free sets for achieving my stampin start. If you want o know how to earn free stamp sets then drop me an email or give me a call.

I was so excited this morning to know that my delivery of brand new Stampin Up goodies were due to arrive.
In addition to this I had 3 FREE sets that I had earned during my first few months as a demonstrator.

So here are a couple of pictures showing the little handbags I made , mainly with summer smooches paper but I had to sneak a twitterpated one in as that is my favourite paper.

Hope you like them - they are very simple to make using the big shot and a sizzix die which is excluive to Stampin Up.  If you are interested in this or any other products look at my BUY PRODUCTS page - I'm currently offering FREE post and packing on orders over £45. email me on to place your order.

If you want to know more about the advantages of being a demonstrator please let me know.
