A Bauble step by step and a Bloggy Sale heads up…

Hi there, Good of you to pop in. Always nice to know somebody’s out there! Earlier today. Lost my way with the early morning blog routine there for a bit. Back on track now. Got a lot on my plate… Here’s a little step by step, using one of the new 2-way bauble stamps I drew. These are proving to be very popular indeed, so the more ideas, the better, eh! Let’s begin. Load the negative image, the second stamp…

Question: Can you draw on a leaf? Answer: Yes. So here’s a simple step by step, drawing on a ginkgo leaf, an old, dried ginkgo leaf… Pick a leaf, any leaf. Look carefully at it. Study it. Do you see the landsape within its veins? Do you see…

When will it stop waining!

When will it stop waining!

Hi there, Thanks for popping in. Wet, innit? Well it’s waining cats n dogs here darn sarf, I can tell you!! Just drove home from the office. Most treacherous conditions really. Dark, flooded, tipping down, and a load of oblivious nutters hell bent on killing us all. So I am very glad to be parked and in the warm. I recently did a project for the New Design Die Club using the new umbrella die, but then decided against the…

Oh the colours!!

Oh the colours!!

Hi there, Thanks for popping in. I was driving home this afternoon, the sun was shining down on the fields and meadows – and I was suddenly overwhelmed by the sheer beauty of it all. There is a stretch along the country road where the trees on either side reach up over us and join hands, creating the most spectacular tree tunnel along the way. Stretches for a good mile or so, and the colours today – with the sun…

Hi there, Thanks for popping in. A week ago today we were at the NEC in Birmingham, pedalling like crazy. Seems like months ago! Was it really only last weekend? I must check….yep. I was on Bauble Duty, demonstrating the new 2-way overlay baubles, which have proved so popular. Maybe the price offer is irrestible. Maybe you like the illustrations. Maybe both! There’s a 3 for 2 offer on the website, which I will leave there for another week, I…

All depends how you look at things…

Hi there. Thanks for popping in. Scurrying around here, changing horses, all set to head off to the NEC, Birmingham. Packing my demo kit here, and think I will stick to the plan: work around what we just did on telly – our new Christmas Baubles! Here’s a little sample I made which is quick and simple, and quite fun, too: How to: selection of Distress Oxide ink pads layered up on the second stamp in the Happy Christmas Set,…

A Perforect Book!

Hi there, Thanks for popping in. Just got home. Big accident on the M11. Somebody was having a very, very bad day. Took a couple of hours longer to get home, but hey. Better late then never springs to mind. Thank you to all of you who invested in Linda’s beautiful new Handbook. What a thing to prize it is. I have learnt so much and have had a real personal breakthrough in achieving some of that fantastic lacework we…

What a result! 19-7!!!

What a result! 19-7!!!

Hi there, Thanks for popping in. Did you watch the rugby this morning? What a game! You had to see the English team come out of the starting blocks. It was unbelievable. They were 7 points up on New Zealand 90 seconds in! I was jumping round the living room like a nutter! Did my throat in screaming at the telly, too! What a work out! Made all the sweeter by the fact that our Mark was in the stadium…

Here is a step-by-step I did a while back, using the boot stamp, which is my personal favourite. The background is from our Shenandoah Designer Card. Love…

Cards, gifts and all that jazz!

Cards, gifts and all that jazz!

Hi there! Thanks for popping in. Thought I’d pop in myself, before heading off to Clarity Towers. It is pouring cats n dogs outside! So much for “suede shoes are in this season”!! Only snag is you can’t wear them outside! And no amount of pre-wear protective spray that they try and sell you with every pair is going to keep this deluge out. Wellies. That’s the only answer. Wellies. Anyway. Let’s make a coaster for somebody for Christmas. let’s…
