Whats your favourite Christmas Stamp set from the current catalogues?

I have managed to spend all afternoon in the craft room, that said it wasn't a particularly productive afternoon, I was trying to work out how I had made an Australian Gingerbread garland, I have a 2nd attempt drying so more about that tomorrow.

I eventually think I worked out what I had did wrong, so then I moved on to some more Ornaments keepsakes cards, so it looks like I have another favourite set.

So out of the two current catalogues what is your favourite set?


Whilst pondering the Australian Gingerbread Garland I came across a wonderful blog by a lady called Patty Bennett, she had made a great card using the Holiday frame embossing folder and the white shimmer paint. I cased the card & then changed the colour way for a slightly different look.

The glitter border is the glimmer paper that is great as it doesn't shed the glitter.


Although it is quite hard to see on the very vanilla cardstock I have used the white shimmer paint on a sponge dauber & rubbed it over the raised impression left from the holiday Frame embossing folder.

The colours used on all of the cards are from the new in-colours for 2012 -2014 Gumball Green & Raspberry Ripple

Do you have a favourite Stamp set that you always reach for?

I may not be there.....Or Maybe I AM



I found something to make you smile

Stampin' Up are not just a fabulous company, they are a fabulous company to work for, they are in touch with reality & here are some images from there recent advertising campaigns, I love them.



This is my absolute favourite
If you would like to work with a great company & share the creativity  please contact me for further details, there is a special offer running throughout October & November.

Stampin' Hugs until next time.

What a funny week

This week has already been a very strange week for me, firstly i'm home alone all week. Paul is away for work, Abi is in Cologne for half Term with my Sister in Law & Brother In law & Dan although he hasn't lived at home for two & a half years is over In America with the Company he is working for during his year in industry whilst doing his Degree. I too was supposed to be in Germany with Stampin' Up from Tomorrow, but sadly missed out as the places filled up in record time, So I have the next six days off work & intend to make the most of them.

As if all of that isn't unusual enough in this ever busy household I went to a haunted Inn at Bungay on Monday night to do some Paranormal Investigating. The Inn which I wont name was strange, it was a huge building date back many hundreds of years, but we were the only 3 members of the public in the bars, which I guess for a Monday night maybe wasn't so strange. But when we walked in it was like walking into a movie set where they had the remnants of the set from the Adams family & Scooby Doo a scary Movie ! We kept lifting up the net curtains to make sure that the dry cleaners across the road was still there & we hadn't entered a parallel dimension, because it sure felt weird.

After the guided tour we were free to wander round unaccompanied, we did some experiments and took some readings & at one stage the EMF meter went off the scale & the temperature reading dropped by 20 degrees, The readings cannot be explained, but I felt nothing except incredibly cold, usually I have experienced strange noises like a skipping rope swishing or the smell of Lavender or the smell of cookies baking & even on one occasion I found tears streaming from my eyes for no apparent reason, looked round & two other women in the group were experiencing exactly the same thing, but I can truthfully say that all I felt was cold. I wonder if we were invited for publicity purposes & the characters in the bar were genuine employees. Maybe I will never know but it did take me hours to get warm again when I got home.

Well I intend  to make the most of my time home alone and get Christmas samples made, some crochet for the blanket i'm making done and also some sewing. I intend to make some Christmas Bunting & also some felt decorations for the Christmas tree I usually have in my hall, although I do need to find a new slimline tree this year as my black Fibre optic tree died last year. I think the felt decorations are the wisest choice as the two youngest cats are such characters i'm sure the tree will be decorated & re-decorated many times before the big day.

Well so far today I have managed a couple of cards & a small garland which id currently drying, so here are the cards I'm sharing today.
Back out with the scentsational seasons set today after finding some amazing inspiration on the internet.



Well we are nearly at the end of another month, Have you started your Christmas cards yet?
If not I'm running a Christmas card Making class on a Thursday night during November & Early December, drop me a line for further details.

Stampin' Hugs until tomorrow

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!
