Laura Ashley ~ now in stock

Laura Ashley
I have spent the day unpacking a delivery at work all of the new Laura Ashley goodies, they are georgous, two styles on traditional & the other contemporary. Four sets of rubber stamps 3 sets of wood mounted & one of them is the stick type like tapestry stamps to build up a picture & a set of clear stamps.
Jarrolds in Norwich have it all in stock at the moment, but it is selling fast people were rummaging in the boxes as I was trying to unpack them.

Temptation ~ resistance is futile

Those lovely people at Pink petticoat have just sent a newsletter with the latest download release Too Tweet, so i didn't even try to resist I just popped along and bought the download & a cupcakes download. The only problem is I have to get ready for work now, so I cant play until tonight.
Have a look at the pink petticoat site & see if you have more willpower than me!

Todays words of wisdom ~ especially for John

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.

Todays words of wisdom

Start living now. Stop saving the good china for that special occasion. Stop withholding your love until that special person materializes. Every day you are alive is a special occasion. Every minute, every breath, is a gift,make the most of every minute.

Sisterhood of the Blogging Stampers-15

Hi All

My name is Lisa a craft-a-holic & stamp-a-holic. I have been rubber stamping for over 17 years now & back in those days everything had to be ordered from the USA. Over the last 17 years I have taken a couple of breaks from crafting to have my babies, both are no longer babies at 16 & 12. During my years of crafting I think I have tried most papercrafts but still keep going back to rubber stamping especially colouring them with watercolour pencils.
I have started scrap booking, but so far only made 3 double pages.
I love My family, Penny Black stamps, Cuttlebug embossing folders, kettle crisps & guilt free time in my craft room, walking on the beach ( even in the snow ) & the colour pink.
I hate bananas, tea bag folding, rude people, milk & shopping in the city centre on a Saturday afternoon.

Happy Crafting

Wedding Cards

A while ago I used a stamped image that had been in an e-bay package I had bought a few years ago & I really liked the image so I posted on the Docrafts forum with a link to my gallery & a very kind stamp detective not only found the make, stamp details but also the cheapest online stockist, needless to say I needed that stamp. Here are the wedding cards I made with it, the papers are from the new Papermania 12" x 12" range they are double sided & unusually for papermania papers it was hard too choose which side I preferred.

Flower Soft

The shop I work in has recently started stocking Flower soft, so I needed to make some samples for the display, just another excuse to have a play.
I must say that the actual flower soft glue does make a big difference, previously I had used PVA glue and found that the flower soft didn't adhere too well, but the glue that sells with the range is really thick & was much easier too use.

Junk is something you've kept for years and throw away three weeks before you need it.

Look what I found on the beach

On wednesday we went up to the North Norfolk coast, first we went to Sheringham & then onto Cromer. On the beach in Sheringham I found this heart shaped stone, unfortunately it was too heavy to carry back to the car.

Walking along the pier in Cromer was bracing to say the least, and the pier felt like it was shaking in the high winds, I saw this sign and it did make me laugh.

Look at the sea as if anyone would be stupid enough to dive in.

Tinker and co Sherbert Fairies

Tinker & Co ~ Sherbert Fairies is a wonderful CD from Tinker & Co

As promised I have uploaded some cards made from the CD the range of backing papers on this cd is amazing and are so versatile for use with many of the stamped images I like to use from Penny Black & Hero arts.

Spring Clean

I've spent the afternoon in my craft room as the football has been on, I've been having a spring clean.............. I had lots of bits & pieces, stamped images I had already coloured, printed backing papers etc. So I made some quick cards using the Papermania pre-printed card blanks.

Happy Easter

Boo the adventurous

Happy Easter everyone, its snowing here in Norwich and has been since just before eight this morning, Boo the adventurous has been outside but sassy is asleep on one of the beds & The dog just keeps looking out into the garden hoping it will go soon as he's not very brave.

Hubby is pacing around as we have no satellite signal and Chelsea are playing this afternoon.

I dont mind the snow, it make great pictures & I can happily spend the afternoon in my craft room finishing projects off.


Yesterday Hubby & Abi had corporate tickets to see Norwich play at Carrow road, despite rain most of Friday night & snow showers on & off Saturday Morning the game went ahead, as usual when one of us goes we are fortunate enough to see Norwich score a goal or two, but yesterday they excelled themselves beating Colchester 5 - 1.
I think really she only went for the three course meal in Delia's restaurant, so Norwich winning was a bonus, that and the new clothes she got the day before to comply with the strict dress code, every teenage girl has loads of clothes, but how many have an outfit that would comply with a strict dress code?

Experience is a wonderful thing. It enables you to recognize a mistake when you've just made it again.

Making Cards magazine January 2008

Making cards is a brilliant magazine that i am sure many of you will be familiar with, but if you aren't here goes, It is published on the 3rd Thursday of the month, it is only for sale at craft shops and has 6 special issues a year & the next special issue is due out on March 27th 2008 and is a floral special with 32 free sheets of paper & decoupage etc.

The usual issue is £3.40 and contains a project section of 6 - 8 projects and 10 sheets of backing paper, decoupage, borders & Vellum ( each issue is a different theme, so the contents vary )

I find the magazine is brilliant on the days you have creative block, get a magazine out & start cutting out and make a few of the suggested projects & that really gets your creative juices flowing again.

Crafts are here

Crafts are here, crafts are there,

My craft supplies are everywhere.

I really should clean this mess,

but I like it I confess.

Floor is littered, chairs are piled,

Kitchen's looking pretty wild.

On the table, counter too,

Seems that any place will do.

Hall is stacked with cartons high,

filled with things folks like to buy.

Garage is full, but so far....

there's still room to park the car.

I never have an idle day,

New ideas come my way.

Don't know yet what I'll create,

but my imagination's great.

My family smiles, they don't complain,

although at times I am a pain.

but when all is said and done,

I really am a crafty one!
