Christmas Wreath

No, I'm not wishing the year away & starting my Christmas projects early! This is a wreath I made before Christmas, but never got round to showing it off!

It was easy to make, but quite time consuming! I've used Stampin' Up! products where possible, including the gorgeous Cherry Cobbler ink - my favourite red!

The wreath has now been carefully packed away, ready for display when Christmas finally does arrive this year!

There's No Place Like Home

Morning! Just a quick post today to show you a project I made last year - There's No Place Like Home.

This is made using an empty wooden embellishment container - it was already painted grey, so I just added some background paper, cut up a stamped image into 9 equal squares & added some lace & embellishments!

I love how it's turned out - I've been making quite a few home decor items recently, as sometimes it's nice to make something for yourself to keep!

My Latest Creation...

Inspired by Maxine (of Maxine's Melange, which is now closed), I have created my version of the chair pin cushion:

The chair is from a doll's house furniture set, made from MDF, that I had to build! I then painted it with white acrylic as the base coats, then a couple of coats of antique white & finished off with a coat of gold Spray & Sparkle.

The cushion has been made using Stampin' Up!s Spice Cake designer fabric & the cotton reel has been made using chipboard, card & Stampin' Up!s Spice Cake designer series paper. I think the delicate patterns & colours really suit this type of project.

I've really enjoyed making this & it's inspired me to move on to other miniature projects. I'm currently making a dresser! I'll post some pics when I've finished it.

Let me know if you fancy making something like this & I'll arrange a class!

New Stampers 10 Club starting....

A new Stampers 10 club will be starting soon (as soon as we have enough members sign up!). This is your chance to earn hostess benefits without the hassle of hosting a workshop. All you have to do to take part is purchase a minimum of £15 of Stampin' Up! products each month for 10 months. That's a couple of jumbo wheels or a stamp set or some inks.....etc. etc. It's a great way of building up your Stampin' Up! stash without breaking the bank AND you get to be the "virtual hostess" for one of the months, earning hostess pounds to spend in the catalogue.

Here’s how it works:

When you host a workshop, you need a minimum of £150 in sales to qualify for hostess benefits

·         In a Stampers 10 club there are 10 members
·         The club runs for 10 months
·         Each member agrees to spend a minimum of £15 per month, before postage (which is 50p per month)
·         Each month a different club member is chosen to be the hostess
·         You do not actually have to host a workshop – it’s like having a virtual party
·         When it’s your turn to be the hostess, you are guaranteed to receive a minimum of £25 in hostess pounds to spend on anything in the catalogue, including the exclusive, hostess-only specially-priced products. Click here to see more about hostess benefits.
·         You’ll also get a free copy of the catalogue, if you don’t already have one

It’s that simple!

Just think – hostess benefits without having to clean your house, prepare food or invite guests…what a deal! Membership DOES have its benefits!

If you’re interested, please contact us as soon as possible to take advantage of this great opportunity.
Please note that you will be required to sign a Stampers 10 club agreement in order to participate.

Feel free to get in touch if you have any questions. Don't forget to click the "contact us" link above if you're interested in joining - then I can get the paperwork off to you & we can get the club going!
