I'm now a Stampin' Up! Demo

I'm so excited to say that I'm now an Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator.  It's been a very busy week reading through all the business material available to new Demonstrators.  I've ordered my Demo kit and am impatiently waiting for it to arrive.  Can't wait to see all that Stampin' Up! goodness.

I'm also getting my online ordering website setup and expect to be all organised in another week or so.

Having been a papercrafter for more than ten years and also a qualified workplace trainer, I'm very much looking forward to running classes to share my passion for papercraft.  I plan to provide classes for memory and photo preservation (both traditional and digital scrapbooking), card making, 3D paper projects and artist trading cards (ATCs).  The possibilities for what you can create with paper are endless!  The memories that you preserve for future generations are priceless!

If you are interested in learning more about papercrafting, please contact me using the 'Contact' form on the right side of this blog.

Happy crafting.

Sailing birthday card

It was my husband's birthday recently and as he loves sailing, I made him this card which has a Stampin' Up! soft suede, marina mist and very vanilla colour scheme.

Siobhan's 40th birthday card

Nothing like making a card last minute.  Just found out that it's a colleague's 40th birthday this week and not having time to go buy a card, made this one for her instead. As she's Irish, I felt the 'celtic' styled diecut would be appropriate.

Materials used:
Stampin' Up! cardstock, DSP and jewels.
Couture Creations & Spellbinders dies, ribbon and MS butterfly punch
