Creative Afternoon event

I have had a very busy week so I apologize for not posting these photographs of last Saturday's event sooner, which I co-hosted with Norma Thompson . We had almost 30 ladies joined us that day ,the projects were based using The Embellishments Artisan Kit which they received in their goodie bag . Unfortunately this gorgeous little kit is retiring on the 30th June in the summer mini catalogue .

 The display table !                                     
These are 3 of the projects that the ladies made in the afternoon , a cute little mini album , a card using some of the embellishments and a little handbag . We also made a Pool Party fancy fold but unfortunately I can't put my hands on it at the moment !
 These are some close up photos of the cards that I made for the display table .
 I had inspiration from Kerry Timms  for these fancy folds . You will definitely see more of these folds as they are so different !                              
 I just loved making these projects , the ribbons are gorgeous and I was amazed at how far I was able to make this kit stretch .

Best of flowers !

This is the stamp set which Stampin Up have released this month to celebrate their 25th anniversary . I was privileged to be sent this set to make a couple of projects before Regional Training in Telford .The images are so cute .

This is a little seed packet using the hydrangea image .
I used the sunflower image for this card . This technique is called Reverse Spotlighting .The mini scallop punch fits perfectly around this image !
If you are interested in purchasing this set please contact me !

Virtual Hostess Club

I am really excited to be hosting my first Virtual Hostess Club ! If you are interested please continue to read , I hope that I have answered all your questions !

What is a Virtual Hostess Club ?

This is a club where each person agrees to join the club for 6 months and spends a minimum of £25 each month . The monthly order will be a minimum of £150 so therefore qualifies for a hostess benefit of £25 per month .

How does it work ?

Each person who has joined the club will take it in turn to be the virtual hostess and when it's your turn, you will receive the minimum of £25 free hostess pounds to spend as you like . The greater the sales the more you will receive in hostess benefits ! I will allocate each member a month to be the hostess before it starts .

When do I place my order ?

I will place the order on the 24th of each month . It usually takes 5 working days for me to receive it and I will post it out to you as soon as I have received and sorted the order .

Do I pay postage ?

I will cover the initial postal payment from Stampin Up to me but I will charge the cost of the postage from me to you . Your order will be sent first class with Royal Mail .If you live locally Then you are free to collect from me .

How do I place orders ?

You can either ring me with your order or email me (Preferred method ) your order by the 23rd of each month .

How do I pay ?

I will require payment when you place your order, either by cheque or paypal (I will give details of this to those who sign up). Or if you wish you can give me your credit card details to store on file and use each month . All payments are processed securely and I will include a receipt with your order .

I need 6 people to join this club ,and it will run for 6 months.You will receive all current catalogues and any special offers that Stampin Up has on during your time in the club . In addition you will receive a little project that I have designed as if you had been at a workshop !

Stampin Up Team meeting

Yesterday I had my first Team meeting at my house . We have a team of 8 ladies now (Angie was unable to make it and Alice was a little late for this photograph but I have included her in another photograph ) and yesterday gave us the opportunity to discuss the way we would like to move forward . It was fun and informative and we all went away having learnt something new !

 This is Patricia eating one of Alice's delicious fruit kebabs that Alice very kindly brought with her .
Thankyou ladies for coming I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did !
