Apologies!


Apologies to you all for my serious lack of posting, i know alot of my followers have left me... really sorry about that, hopefully one day you may come back and follow me again? Things here have been pretty hectic, working lots in the background on things for Crafters Companion, so thats taking up alot of my time, talking of which, i hope you will pop along tomorrow, as i have designed some printables for the downloads of the month, which i hope you will love? Will put the samples on tomorrow hopefully, so you can see some of what i have been working on, but im sure, over the coming months, all will become clear, as to why i haven't been about much! but i am managing to get a bit of crafting done inbetween, not as much as id like mind... but made this for hubby as its our wedding anniversay on Tuesday, so had to be done!
And apologies again, to my serious lack of postings, and the fact that alot of you are leaving me as followers, i will when i get a chance hopefully come and visit your blogs, which i am seriously missing visiting and seeing all your wonderful creations, so till then, take care x

Sneaky Peak - Beatrix Potter

Well as youve probaly all guessed by now... Beatrix Potter is being released on CD, exclusively to Crafters Companion on Tuesday 16th February at 9pm on Ideal World.
There is lots of information for you on the Crafters Companion Website, with a FREE bonus download for you! Theres also a competition, so pop over there for more info on this new gorgeous release from Crafters Companion.

Here are a few sneak peaks of some samples i made for the launch, and i must admit, i loved working with the images for the CD and seeing the completed CD... WOW! didnt know where to start with the printing, there is just so much on the CDs for everyone, and the characters are just adorable!
Top - Front of Card and Below - inside of card, love this image, its just so cute!
another similar one, but with a different character, these are the Peter Rabbit images and i just love these, they are yet again... gorgeous!

This is the first time i have done one of these card designs, and must admit, they are so easy to make, the instructions are so simple to understand, and the effect is brilliant!
This is another one from Peter Rabbit.
I must admit... the image of this little mouse is amongst my favs, she is just so adorable! this is a box frame (which i apologise you cant see that clearly!) and yet again, hadnt made this style before but was really easy.
And last, by no means least Mrs Tiggywinkle! adorable, she is one of my favs, she just looks so sweet with her little smile and i think shes so sweet.
Well, dont forget to tune in on Tuesday night, there will be so many other samples for you all to see, and i can say, that im sure you will absolutely love this new collection, there are some absolutely gorgeous designs on the set of CDs, the stamps are gorgeous too and match the CDs, but enough of that.... watch the show and see how many wonderful things there are.

Craft Club Tuesday....

Well, last Tuesday, we did Acetate cards, and these are 2 of the creations i came up with.
I saw these papers and was just WOW as they are just the cutest, i must admit i have bought the stamps for this set as they are so cute, but think i may well have to buy a pad of papers.... even if just to stroke them as they are the cutest!
This was the other design i did, i just loved this paper, and was reluctant to cut it, as it was so pretty, but once cut... that was it! and it didnt hurt, so i think i may have to cut some more pretty papers, i did actually think that lots of these pretty gorgeous papers out there are purely for strokability purposes... but apprently not! hahaha (maybe its just me then?)

anyhow, no group tonight as its had to be cancelled, but am hoping to get some crafting done at home instead!
See you all soon
