Magnetic Shopping Lists

Good morning everyone!

The sun's shining today here in Surrey, I really love this time of year. Although we're winding down towards the end of the year (and there's a certain laziness about that) it's a time for new beginnings - the children are about to start school, and traditionally it's a time for preparation into winter - although any preparations we make these days are for the main celebration at the end of the year - Yule (Christmas).

With this in mind I thought I'd show you these lovely gifts. They are covered in Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper - the monotone black and white papers are from the Modern Medley set and the others are Polkadot Parade (as seen yesterday). Both paper sets available through me.

They take no time at all for producing a small, personal gift. Why not get some ready as stocking fillers? Or they would make perfect wedding favours tied with a bit of raffia and a label, or indeed for small birthday presents.

I bought the magnetic shopping lists already made with the magnet on the back but you could purchase some magnets (give eBay a try) and glue them on with a glue gun.

Papillon Pot-pourri

Good morning everyone!

After a couple of months' break I am back. I haven't completely got my mojo back but I've had a few enquiries this week and I am glad to see that my blog is still getting quite a few hits every day ~ plus the sun is shining! ~ so what better way to get started again.

I'd like to offer heartfelt thanks to my family, friends, customers and especially my lovely bunch of Stampin' Up! demonstrators who've helped me through this tough time. I couldn't have done it without you and without you I probably wouldn't be sitting here ~ typing on this blog ~ right now!

So here's the first card of my comeback. I've used the wonderful Papillon Pot-pourri plus the Polkadot Parade paper (and a tiny rhinestone) for this vintage-inspired card which I just adore:

Papillon Pot-pourri, Stampin' Up! Butterflies

This card is perfect for retro lovers - it was so quick and simple, too.

There will be a lot of news over the next few days where I fill in the gaps for both customers and myself - please bear with me!

I will also be posting up news of forthcoming community classes. So stay tuned.
