Thanks for popping in.
Just got back home from the craziest couple of days up at HOCHANDA.
Traffic was reasonable too, so I was home early! Yay!!!!
Pretty much sold out of the One Day Special in the first hour.
And if you have been following the blog, you will know that we have been working night and day to get the stock up to respectable. Thousands of plates. I’m telling you: thousands.
I was gobsmacked when Alex said that over 80% had sold in the first hour! Impossible, I was thinking. There must be something wrong with the system. There’s a glitch.
By the time we turned up for the 9am show,
guess how many were left?
One single little set.
Not much to work with!
The lovely Groovi Insets and Baby Plates had all gone!
I did manage to do a little canvas demo.
Very simple, but pretty too.
Would you mind if we just do a little step by step of that?
Paul’s coming over with a rake of plates which need cleaning
and packing this evening.
No peace for the wicked, eh.
But it’s fine.
We just sit at the kitchen table and have a good old chinwag
while we work.
So let me just recap the little demo of the inset.
Started with the Tags Border, to make the little No. sign.
Then added the picture frame, using the large square nested framer.
Time to set the scene, using the Groovi Baby Wee Shops and Houses.
Just slot the Groovi Inset in the Groovi Plate Mate from the Starter Kit, and off you go!!!
Use the Landscape Plate from the Starter Kit and combine it with the Tree on the Baby Plate.
No. 1 and a couple of birds.
I love making a scene!
Colour in with pencils and Distress Markers,
and cut right back using a craft knife and ruler.
Add Double-sided 3mm tape to the black border strip.
Attach to blue card.
Add the blue to the black card,
and the black card to a 6″ x 6″ Canvas board.
The best thing for sticking is our A6 double-sided adhesive sheet.
I wrote a little message in the waymarker.
Can you guess what I said?
Just got hit by a wave of tiredness.
Thank you if you watched and bought.
Thank you if you just watched.
I really enjoyed myself actually.
Alex the presenter is a lovely, lovely woman.
This parchment craft is so new to me, but I am really getting in the groove.
And the Grid Plates!
Well, they make you feel like a bonafide parcher!!!
See you tomorrow xx
love & hugs,
