Back from Newbury

Newbury was a fantastic show, I met lots of lovely crafters and I had a full workshop of 10 lovely ladies, it was really hot that day so thank you so much for coping in the heat!  Pictures of the workshop will follow in the next few days.

My fellow demonstrators and I all made stamped items for our goodie bags and the pictures below are some of the items I made, a card, a bookmark (giant paper clip), a chocolate favour and a notebook. All simple designs but lovely.

You will also see the made with love stamp on the back.  Stampin' Up! is an 'Angel' company which means it is happy for you to sell your creations using Stampin' Up! images but you need to have a copyright Stampin' Up! sign on the product, they can only be hand stamped images but there is no limit to the number of products you can make.  We sell a lovely stamp set with them in, but I always have my set of these stamps available to my customers if they wish to borrow them.

You only have 2 more days to take advantage of the extra special sign up offer from Stampin' Up! of a free stamp set of your choice from the catalogue, email me for more details and see the post below.

3 cards 1 design

These are very simple yet fab cards. It's funny how designs come in and out of fashion even in the paper crafting world..........I've been teaching this design for several years ( usually at Christmas) but it has cropped up on lots of blogs just recently.

So for those of you that haven't discovered this yet here are the instructions

1 piece of Whisper white card stock 4" x 11 1/2" ( this way you get 2 out of an A4 sheet)

Score this at 1 3/4", 3 3/4", 5 3/4", 7 3/4" and 9 3/4"

You then score on a diagonal line, have the card stock horizontally in front of you and score from the top left score line to the bottom of the middle score line. Then from the top of the middle score line to the bottom of the far left score line. You will end up with a cross that meets in the middle of the second score line in. Repeat on the other side.

It may sound complicated but it really isn't, if you need pictures leave me a post and I'll photograph some for you over the weekend.

Now stamp randomly over the card stock, fold and crease along all the score lines. You then fold in the sides to make a diamond shape in the centre and the triangle sections tuck underneath, the 2 end straight sections fold forwards to hold the card upright.

Now decorate the front as desired.

For the Taken with Teal card I have used Seeing spots stamp set and Circle of Friendship.

The Green Galore Card is using the Unfrogettable stamp set, the frogs eyes are half pearls from the pretties kit with a black spot for a permanent marker pen.

The Summer Sun card is using Bold Butterfly Stamp set and the fantastic heat and stick powder, if you are going to The Newbury Show at the end of the month come visit me at the Stampin' Up! stand with some other fantastic demonstrators and I'll demonstrate it for you!
