Welcome to my world!

My world of stamping has now taken on a big change, and has become 'My world of Crafting'. Hopefully I can get back to the routine of more regular blogging.

My 15 minutes of fame.........well maybe 2minutes!!

Well here I am, alongside Craft Presenter of the year, Stephanie Weightman, for the second year running, inside the studios of Ideal Shopping Direct in Peterborough. My TV debut (and my last I imagine!) - well they do say that everyone has 15 minutes of fame in their lifetime, and this must have been mine. Me on the right (and I forgot to breathe in!) and my friend Kathie on the left, had a wonderful time on Sunday when we had a guided tour around the Studios as well as appearing live - TWICE! - on Create & Craft and Ideal World shopping channels. Their hospitality was second to none, and the friendliness of all the crew was just fantastic. All the celebs were happy to chat with us as they made their way to their individual shows:
Michelle Marsden from Red Hot Bed
Nigel and Hazel of Strictly Card Dancing fame
Sheena promoting her stamps from Express
Robert Addams with his Celtic CD
Martyn, Shaun, Denise, Joanne, presenters from C&C - such lovely people
and Stephanie of course - such energy!
How does she do it , constantly?
So here's a few cards from the Oriental Flowers die-cut collection which I made during the day, and the Saturday morning before. I tried to be a little more adventurous than just layering up on the card.
Two cards put together, and the outline of the flower cut around for the inside edge of the card.

The actual card is cropped here, and layered onto an A5 card with the front folded back to give dimension and movement.

Here, the front of the card has been disected with a wavy cut, and the right hand edge has been adhered to the inside of the card, to make a complete picture when closed. And a 'dangly' hanging from the greeting - I love doing these!

I couldn't forget my beloved Stampin' Up so you can just see the scalloped border on the middle card here!
So back to reality now - catch up on everything at home (when the world stood still!) - and prepare for my Tuesday afternoon workshop, get my Stampers 10 order placed, 'make' 20 x A5 patterned envelopes, and basically get my act together for the coming weekend, when I am on a Copics Workshop in Leeds with the fantastic Maddy Hill. She certainly knows how to use Copics and much more - check out her blog http://madimaginations.blogspot.com/2009_02_01_archive.html
Thanks for popping by - I'll be back soon.
