Back with new ideas!

It has been a long blogging break. I do have a reason though, this one:


My third baby, another boy, was born in the end of April. He is gorgeous and full of smiles now. I am also finally getting more organised with my time and have been able to put some of my many crafty ideas into practice.

I made some thank you notes for the lovely people who cooked us meals when I was in the hospital or remembered us in some other way.


I used Just Believe Stamp Set with some Baker’s Twine to decorate little paper bags.


I printed a personal note on the back of the photo and stamped the back of the paper bag too.


Simple and quick but very pretty!

Yes, since I can’t resist these lovely cupcakes I planned a whole class full of them!

It is Sale-a-bration time!

I love this time of year! We have started a new year,we are already looking towards spring and as the days get lighter – slowly but surely – there is more creative energy around. To organise the house, to make plans for the year, documenting our lives and even start a new hobby. I cleared my craft table and reorganised things a bit to have more space to work and to think and to put on paper and card all the new ideas that keep popping into my mind as we enjoy the light and (hopefully) more sunshine than rain.

Early in the year Stampin’ Up! is also boosting my crafting as it is the Sale-a-bration time! What could be better than some new craft products and some even for free! During the Sale-a-bration period, 24 Jan – 31 Mar 2012, for every £45 spent you can choose free product from a special leaflet.

This is excellent news for hosting a workshop as well as in addition to the normal hostess benefits you will receive even more free stuff during the Sale-a-bration!

Also if you are interested in joining Stampin’ Up! as a demonstrator now it is the time to do it! You will benefit from the Sale-a-bration when attracting new customers but also you will get to choose any current stamp set from the catalogues for free! How does that sound?

Don’t waste any time, contact me to book your workshops and/or to become a demonstrator!
