Yay - a blog post.... finally!

I know.... I know.... MIA again!
Sorry - things have just been a bit mad this summer - lots of working, demo prep and then demos.... adn do you know what...... I have loved every minute of it!
What have you all been up to?
Here is one of my crafty makes from my demos this month. (sorry about the pic but the lighting is terrible tonight)...
 A few close ups for you

The goodies I used are from the latest ranges from the Creativity Essentials from Do Crafts...... I love the pocket watch stamp.
It's great for cards for the men in your life but I wanted to colour it in blue and purple to show that you can make it look very feminine too.
I'm going to be making something similar at my demo this weekend - but this weekend I will be adding some yummy beads from the wonderful Cousins collection..... I'll share next week after the demo...
Off to bed for me soon - got another very busy day tomorrow....
Back again soon.
Happy craftin'

  6. I loved that stamp when I saw it on Sunday, so I just had to buy the goody bag that it was in! Well it made sense to spend. £15 instead of £5 on one stamp. (didn't it!!!!!) .
    Love what you've done with it too, wouldn't have thought of using these colours, but will now have a play - thanks for the inspiration :)

  7. Oh what a good idea, I wouldn't have thought of changing the colours for the stamp, fabulous calendar x
