Are You Ready For Fall/Halloween?

Hi Friends

Hope you're all having a great day! At least it's not as hot today as yesterday - that was not pleasant!

I made a few Halloween cards to see if I could get my mojo back and it sort of worked. I'm looking forward to our new Holiday catalogue and the products are just super sweet! I can't wait to share them with you when they arrive.

If you'd like an annual catalogue or you'd like to get your hands on the new Holiday catalogue all you have to do is contact me. Alternatively, when you place an order you will receive one from me.

However if you'd like to get your hands on the Holiday products before 1 September (which is when the catalogue goes live to the public) you can become a demo on my team and add products from the new catty to your kit. It costs £99 for £130 worth of product and it's free shipping! Awesome! Just check out the links below the post.

Now onto the cards, they're super simple but I wanted to do a quick post to try to inspire you all and show you another way to use your products.

For the background I used my dies and a rubber mat in my Big Shot machine to emboss with them rather than cut with them. I then used my Stampin' Pads and a dauber to blend two colours per background as well as some black ink around the edges of all the pieces. It toned down the brightness so it looks more Halloweeny :) I used some copics to colour the images in and oval dies to cut them out. Simply add to a 41/4 x 41/4 card base (image panel is 4 x 4) and add some bling/pearls for a final touch. Voila!

The supplies are listed below in case you're interested.

Hope you enjoy them :)

My First Video Trailer!

Hi Everyone

I'm super excited to get this out to the interweb and share with you all. I watched a fellow YouTuber, Amy, and her suggestion was to use Adobe Spark to make quick videos to post on social media. Her video is fantastic and super easy to follow so please check it out. I gave it a go and voila! I made one in about 5 minutes flat. Can you believe it! I've shared it on my social pages so be sure to check those out but in case you're not on any social media, here it is, my Wicked Cool Video Clip. Pretty darn chuffed with myself :)

One thing I'm learning about all this video editing/making is that you have to fun with it otherwise what's the point. My aim is to make people smile and if I can do that for just one person today, then I've done good :)

Before I go, here are some more inspiring images of art that I created, just for fun :)

Have a wonderful day! See you in the next one!

Love & Hugs

*edited* I Have 2 Sites That I'm Running Now :)

Hi everyone

One of the changes is that I now have a new site so I would love it if you popped over to say hi.

You can get there by clicking here.

I will be posting on both and haven't yet decided whether to make each blog about a different topic/genre. If you have any ideas or tips I'd love to hear from you :) Sharing is one of the many reasons I love this community. We're like one big crafty family :)

This year (yes I realize that this is being updated in April lol) I want my blog and YouTube channel to grow and to develop into something I can be truly proud of and sometimes change is needed for this to happen. I will, of course, continue to blog and share videos on crafting however I want to bring a few other topics into that as well, still not decided on what those will be.

I hope you will all join me on my new adventure.

Have a wonderful day!


Happy New Year!

Hi Everyone

I wanted to pop on, I know it's been so long, to wish you all a very Happy New Year. I hope that 2018 brings you peace, positivity and power. Peace to stay kind, positivity to keep calm and power to do the things you thought would be impossible.

I too, am making some changes in my life and I will be sharing some of those with you. I want my blog to prosper and I want to share kindness around like confetti. My blog may become an outlet for me to share my feelings/views, my craft projects, planner stuff and health & fitness progress. I figured if I made myself accountable I may actually stay on track :)

It's a good time to reflect and it's a great time to let go of the toxic things in your life, whether they are people or things, toxic is still toxic and it has affected me in so many ways.

You may have noticed that my blog has a new look and I'm very happy with it. I think, just like me, it needed refreshing. I hope you like it too and continue to follow …
