Yesterday, Today & Tomorrow...

I spent yesterday at PaperArtsy HQ helping them get ready for the Harrogate Show - so if any of you are in the area go along to the Great Northern Papercrafts Extravaganza for some Christmas inspiration (or christmas presents)..

Oh yes, CHRISTMAS!!!  Its now getting close (according the festive little app I have on my phone its 81 days away!) & on the 1st October I saw a shop putting up their christmas tree!! Seriously- can't that wait 'til November!or at least until after Halloween lol
Today will be spent playing with my stamps- making samples to hopefully inspire you to get creative for christmas - in the mean time here are some pics of some I've made already - nice quick'n'easy with 4 of the minis:
Tomorrow I'll be at The Craft Barn in Lingfield demo'ing the stamps - the first time they've been seen/demo'd in a shop so this is very exciting for me... I'll be there with 6 other demonstrators for a mini extravaganza with a festive feel - so leave your 'bah humbug's' at home and come down for some festive inspiration.


ho ho ho


  1. LOVE your samples! I am looking forward to making my Christmas Cards - Like your kraft card ones but with the Christmas tree I bought... I've even (gulp) bought Distress Markers to use on them... What are you doing to my bank balance?!
    Good luck at the demos - wish I live nearer...!

  2. I second Gabrielle.... I had a "status update - despatched" from Paperartsy yesterday... oooh, exciting! Hope the crowds at CB enjoy your stamps tomorrow, sorry I can't (daren't!) be there!.

  3. Your cards look great,sadly can't make tomorrow as I'm up ther on Sunday. Check out the paparazzi photo of you on my blog
