Lots of Updates!!

I've got loads of projects to share with you, just need to get myself sorted and start blogging more often.  Anyway, here is a card I made a little while ago for a swap.  We werent allowed to show them on our blog until the swap had happened, and then I forgot all about it!!! So here it is, using the Tea Shoppe set in the summer mini.

Cocktail Menu
Tea Shoppe Card
Baja Breeze A4 Card Stock
Chocolate Chip A4 card stock
Baja Breeze Classic Stampin Pad
Chocolate Chip Classic Stampin Pad
Tea Shoppe Stamp Set (w) (Summer mini)
Teeny Tiny Wishes Stamp Set (w)
Baja Breeze Seam Binding Ribbon
Scallop Edge Border Punch
Word Window Punch
Modern Label Punch
Simply Scored Scoring Tool

I'm loving doing the ruffled effect with the seam binding.  It has appeared in quite a few projects recently!!

Anyway, enough of this project.  Remember that the Tea Shoppe stamp set is in the summer mini, so only guaranteed to be available until the end of August as nobody knows what will make it into the next catalogue, so if you love it, like I do, then get your orders in soon!!

Hopefully I will be back soon as my blogging get's more regular.

This is my first ever post for What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday.  (there seem to be a lot of firsts recently!!)  For those of you who don't know what it is, basically you take a photo of what's on your workdesk, on a wednesday, post it on your blog, and link back to the original blog where the challenge was set.  Easy!

I know, technically I'm posing this very early on Thursday morning, but the photo was taken on Wednesday, and it still feels like wednesday!!

Not a great deal on my desk, some mess left over from playing with inks earlier in the week, and then some little bags made with the Stampin' Up! scalloped envelope die.  There may well be some further photos of simlar projects over the coming weeks, as I love this die, but these were made by my daughter to take into school as a thank you for the teachers.  All the children had such a fab time celebrating the Jubilee before half term, and we thought they deserved a thank you.  Each one just contains a couple of sweets.  Anyway, better get off to bed so it can officially be Thursday!!!

Twitterpated Scrapbook page.

I haven't done many layouts recently, but have just started to be inspired again to do some pages as you can see from my blog, and I had to have a go with the beautiful Twitterpated papers from the summer mini catalogue.  This is what I came up with.  I also used the colour spritzer from the main catalogue, which is my new favourite toy.  You can use it with all of the SU markers to spritz colour onto a background or project.  This means that I have got far more colours to use than just the few inkpads I own, as I treated myself to the full set of markers.

Don't forget that the wonderful twitterpated paper is available in the summer mini which finishes in August!! Dont hesitate to contact me if you want to find out more about placing an order.

My first ever craft fair

I can't believe it has taken me a week to post these photos, but this time last week I was sitting behind a stall at my first ever craft fair!!!  It was great fun, and I must say a huge thank you to my friend Suzanne Ross for talking me into doing it, and helping me throughout the day.  I didn't sell a great deal, but got some leaflets out there, and found some great new contacts etc so all told, a good day.

And some more exciting news, I have found a venue for a crop and classes, so watch this space for some information and dates.
