Helidot day at home

What a lovely day we had yesterday making 4 cards using my new peel offs.
There were 15 ladies all squashed into my kitchen after we re-arranged the furniture!!
But nobody seemed to mind and all had a really good day.
Thanks to my Mum and my daughter Emma for all their help!! I couldn`t have managed without them.

Here we all are hard at work.....

By the end of the day Fran said she had mastered the art of cutting out neatly, well done Fran!!
Here are two of the cards we made which are not in the booklet, illustrating how versatile the peel offs are

As you can see it is a pop up card

This is the front view. The bird is attached with acetate to the back of the bird house.

One of the other cards we made was this one, which everyone loved and was much simpler and not so much cutting out.We managed 3 cards in the afternoon, well done everyone!!

Hope you like it, as everyone said it would be an ideal Baby card.

Bee Happy.

Craft Buddies Day

Had an enjoyable morning demoing at Craft Buddies in Uckfield last Saturday.
Lovely to meet lots of new people and I would like to thank them for their enthusiasm.
The morning went so quickly and thank you to Helen for inviting me.
Here are some more cards we made using my peel offs....

Yesterday was exciting when my MAKING CARDS magazine arrived and I discovered my products had been featured in the "what`s new" section. I loved the headline "Dotty about peel offs!!"

I`m so busy this week designing my Christmas set which should be available in is a sneak preview, hope you like it.......

I will be demoing the set at the Craft Barn`s mini fest on October 1st .

Bee Happy!!!

Saturday Class

We had a lovely class on Saturday it was gorgeous weather which makes everyone happy...
We made five easy cards using the Botanical set from craftwork cards which is lovely. Thank you to all the lovely ladies that come on a Saturday I know they do travel a long way.. so I'm always happy when they like the cards we make.  Here are two of the cards we made .. hope you like them.

The flower punch we used was from Martha Stewart, and the ribbon was from my stash,everything else was from Craftwork Cards.
Bye for now...!

New baby

To my lovely niece on the birth of her second daughter.  This is the card I made for her from my peel offs using the bees and the toadstool shapes.

Jon and I have our own little baby, she is so cute although full of mischief at the momenrt, she is very partial to chewing up bits of paper and large bees.. although she looks like butter wouldn't melt.

This is willow ..... Just look at the Dennis Heally's they must be at least two inches long!!!
