Good to be back!

Hi everyone!   Sorry for the delay in getting back to my blogging, but my ear operation was a lot larger than expected, and the recovery time is still ongoing.  However, I can at least now put my glasses on for a short period of time, and see things!

I would like to take this opportunity to thank my team for supporting me and helping me run my business while I've been incapacitated, and also a HUGE thank you to friends and customers for all the cards, flowers, gifts etc.,  During some extremely 'down' moments, your loving thoughts have really helped me get through some painful times.

Anyway, I'm back on track now ....  Below are a selection of cards and tags that I have made using the fabulous Home for Christmas designer series papers, together with a hostess stamp set called Antique Tags.  I've used a mixture of different ribbons and punches to embellish the projects, and also the amazing Woodland Textured embossing folder.

I think the cards and tags are pretty easy to follow just by looking at them, and I really just need to add that the 'bambi's' have been fussy cut from the designer paper, and the tags have been made using the Scalloped Tag Topper punch.   To add to the effect of the 'trees', after embossing, I rubbed the inkpad gently over the raised image.


Once a month, I am going to highlight some of the amazing projects that my customers have made. Today, I am going to show you a couple of projects by Ian Wharton, and also Debbie Burt.


Isn't this peacock stunning?  Ian hand-coloured the peacock, and then fussy cut the image out.  I think his use of glitter card behind the peacock, really makes it stand out.

Ian has used the Vintage Leaves stamp set and matching framelits for the card below.  He has used distressing techniques on the background, and has highlighted the card using spritzers.


I just love the colours that Debbie has used in this folding box card.  Debbie has used the pansy punch and pansy stamp set on this card, and has used a mixture of pastel inkpads to create this beautiful project.

For this beautiful card gift set and matching bag, Debbie has used designer series papers, and the Petite petals stamp set.  She has coloured in pearls for the centres using the retired blendabilities pens.


STAMPERS GROUP: I have three places left for a Stampers Group starting in November. A stampers group is a great way to help you spread the cost of buying stash.  You commit to spending £15 per month (plus postage) for 10 months, and during one of those months, you receive the hostess benefits - anything from £15 upwards to spend on whatever you would like.  Orders and payments are due by the 14th/15th of each month.

TEAM MEMBERS:   I am aiming to grow my team dramatically this coming year, and I am looking for people who would either like to earn commission on their purchases, or who wish to start their own business.  For only £99 for your starter kit, you will be able to select products of your choice up to the value of £130 and will receive a free stationery kit worth £45.  You will then be able to earn from 20% up to 25% commission on future purchases.

You will also have me as your upline, and I will be able to guide you and encourage you to become either a successful demonstrator for yourself and a few friends, or, I can help you build your business, and help you earn even more benefits and financial opportunities.

As always, if you would like to place an order, or if you have any questions or queries, then please contact me on or call/text me on 07747 465186


Happy Crafting!  Catch you soon - Cal xxx
