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.

Paint Fusion

After a lovely day with the family, celebrating the christening of my grand-daughter Nicole,it seemed only right that I had a little play. As usual, I have things that I must do but this was what I wanted to do! So here are the results - daisies and sunflowers on a crackle background.
The technique is called Paint Fusion and has been brought to us by Sheena Douglass, and she has made the one-stroke brush painting so much easier, with practically the same results. It's all about the way you load your brush!
Tomorrow I'll bring you some cards - quick Christmas cards - as that's what I shall be needing very soon!!
Thanks for looking.

A little bit sketchy!

Now that my weeks holiday is coming to an end, I thought it about time I updated the blog - well it has been since last Sunday that I posted! And thanks to the multi-talented Sheena Douglass, here is my CASE on her lovely card using a couple of the latest 'A little bit sketchy' stamps. So useful - and I shall be trying some different colourways soon. She's on TV tomorrow at 10am so I shall be watching so as not to miss a single tip!
If you want to get your stamps from this range, my lovely place of work, Colemans Craft Warehouse in Rushden, has them in stock now along with an Aladdins cave of crafting items.
I'll see you there tomorrow then?
Thanks for looking and will be back soon.

It's been a very long time!

It's been nearly 9 months since I updated my blog and what has happened to Blogger? It's seriously different! But here's a picture of what I have been teaching today at Colemans Craft Warehouse. In March this year, I managed to secure the best job I have ever had. I absolutely love going to work now! And as you see here, this is what a lovely group of 8 ladies made today  during a 5 hour workshop. The kit is by Kaisercraft and can be decorated in whichever colourway you desire but we chose this way.
If you are in the Rushden Northants area, Colemans Craft Warehouse is well worth a visit. We are only open at weekends to the general public but have workshops running most days of the week. I have a regular Tuesday afternoon cardmaking class and a monthly patchwork class as well as individual workshops on various themes.
For my loyal followers, I hope to be able to bring you projects on a regular basis now that I'm back. And as you have inspired me over the years, I hope to return the favour once again.
Thanks for dropping by.
