Studio changes

Been soooo busy the last few weeks haven't had time to spend in my studio.  I recently bought some new shelves for the studio and at the weekend started to put them into use.  I bought a drawer unit designed for toy storage from IKEA and am using it to store my scraps and at hand tools.

I've now added a sofa in my studio, so I can sit and reflect.  Need to get some nice stripey deck chair material to cover it now.

Telford regional event

Two weeks ago, I was in Telford getting ready for the annual stampin up regional training event.

This is a great event where you meet lots of demos from around the country.  We all make swaps to swap with each other, a name badge and donate a card for RMC fund.

These were my swaps:

These are mini needle sets which could sit in your handbag for that emergency repair.  I stamped the Lacey background and flower. There is a small pocket inside holding the needle case.

This is my name badge:

This is using and Easter stamp (without the sentiment) and coloured with blender pens.

This is my card donation:

The event was held at the international centre in Telford.
Here are a few photos around the day.


Trip to Dorset with fellow demos

Sorry I've not posted for a while, but I have been soooo busy lately.  The last couple of months have been manic, I will try and post at least once a week.

At the end of March, myself and a number of other stampin up demonstrators from our team had a crafting weekend in Dorset.  
It was a fab weekend of 24 hour crafting if we wanted! I couldn't keep going for that long, I had to go to bed about 10 especially after the 4 ish hour drive.

We all had to bring along three cards we had designed with the same stamp set and "kits" for everyone to make the same.  We also did a scrapbook or project life page too. 

These are the cards that I made:

The green one is using a lace background stamp in mossy meadow. The hello darling stamps were used for all three cards. The black card is using chalkboard paper and chalk inks.   The brown card is also using chalk inks.  They give a lovely affect.

We also did a 3d gift for each other and an inspiration table too. 

Can't wait for the next weekend !

Mother's Day gifts

Have been very busy over the weekend making roses and daffodils. These are the results.

They have been very popular and have had to make some more for orders too!

Just love the way they've turned out though.
