Lots of catching up to do!!

Well I am at the factory trying to catch up on some work, as we are full on again for at least the next month!!! Successful meeting on Friday so we have some amazing products coming out soon, can't wait!! Well back to the grind stone as I have about a years worth of work to do in an afternoon!! I will leave you with a sample I made for the last template show, using the lower case alphabet to make a star book with a difference, as the photo's are on the second layer, the pages spell out Our Wedding. Enjoy the sun shine and try not to burn.

We have been a bit busy at the moment as we launched 4 more templates on Ideal World today. So it was up early to get to Peterborough for the show at 11, and the new templates sold out as did the fab "I can't believe they're not brads!" paper brads. I love these little guys and you will see them feature on a lot of projects!!! I don't have any photos to share of the samples I made yet, but I will try and get some taken over the next few days. So we have a very busy week stuffing envelopes for the TV plus on Friday we are off to take a look at some amazing new products that I am very excited about!! Might not get much blogging done for a few weeks as on 11th June we have not 1 but 2 live shows on Ideal World and Create and Craft and a girl has a lot of samples to make!! But again we are soo excited about the products we are bring on to these shows so I am looking forward to making the samples!! Well bed is calling as it has been a rather long day (although confession for the first time in a long time we stole an afternoon nap!!).

Nearly a Bank Holiday!!

Well it is another long weekend, not that I benefit much as I am working Saturday and Sunday, but Monday I am working from home, and cracking on with new samples ready for the next template show on Create and Craft 25th May (seems miles away but trust me it isn't!!) So Levi and I will go for a lovely walk in the morning on Monday before I get cracking with samples, I hope to have at least one of the new templates to play with!!

I will leave you with one of the samples from last time, I love this template as it makes fun folded cards, this one is the tabbed version (the template also does a flower version). I used papers from Love Elsie Daisy range, and a couple of photo's of Levi. It is a really easy photo card to make, and of course you can go even more to town on the decorating than I do!!!

Whoops almost forgot to share my favourite sample I did last time!! It is just something totally fun and silly but I was so chuffed with how it came this the most unusual use for a cake slice template???

As seen on TV!!

Well nearly a month has passed since these samples were featured on Ideal World, so I think it is time I photographed them and uploaded them!! These were made with the Get in Shape Templates. The little tag book was using (imaginatively) the tag set, using the 3 larger tags to create the pages. I simply folcded some Crate Papers in half, lined the tags up with the folds, drew around and cut them out, to make the pages, then had fun decorating them. As the templates have the layering marked on them they are so easy to use!! Even for me.....

The second item is a photo box, of Paul and Levi. These little boxes are lovely and so easy. The template is the folded gift bag and box one, it comes with the lid template if you want to make a box like this or you can just leave it as a basket (great for holding sweets and chocolate!!!) Really easy and quick to make and a lot less fuss than an exploding box!!

Where does time go!!

Well yet again we are over half way through the week, I just don't know where time goes!! We have a busy few months planned with some exciting stuff happening, so not much spare time for a while, but I do get to do some serious crafting, even if it is samples!! We are working on new templates at the moment and they are looking good, can't wait to get my hands on them and get creating with them. Will upload some new stuff shortly. Until then I will share some of my favourite photo's of Levi....

Well another post!!

I have been busy making sample cards with the new Get in Shape Templates and I love this Flippin Card Template. I must get and have more of a play but I am busy making more samples using stamps. I will upload more when I get a chance.

As I am new to this bloggin lark there will be a mixture of new and old stuff for a while, as I have a back log of projects that have never been shared anywhere.
