Exciting news and new blog!

Hello all! I have some exciting news to share! As of the end of February, I am now an Independant Demonstrator for Stampin' Up! products in the UK!

About Stampin' Up!

Established in 1988, Stampin' Up! delight in offering exclusive products, techniques and designs that help crafters around the world to discover and express their creativity. With a wide range of top quality stamp designs and products in coordinating colours, there really is something for every taste, be it fun, cute, elegant, edgy, classic, vintage, clean and simple or bursting to the brim!

The products are both fantastic quality and fantastic value, and are sold exclusively through demonstrators like myself, who offer workshops and training, and provide inspiration and the opportunity to purchase Stampin' Up! supplies online through our blogs.

I've therefore started a lovely new online blog called Starlight Stampin' - I'd love it so much if you would go and check it out here, and become a follower!

Thanks so much,

Laura xx

Sweet stuff!

I just wanted to take a moment to tell you about a fantastic blogger I've found while on my travels looking for inspiration.

Jacque, from Jacque's Joie de Vivre is a Master of all things Magnolia. She is truely an inspiration, not only because she is super talented, but also because she is possibly the nicest person on the net! She's so sweet to her followers, with kind words and tons of candy that we all try to snap up! I'd highly recommend checking out Jacque's stunning designs - her attention to every tiny detail is exceptional, I'm learning a lot about how to do things properly from studying her art! If you're quick, you might even get chance to win some fab candy too - who can resist!

Christmas 2010 makes - final!

I love making tags, and had more fun with them than with cards this year.

Christmas 2010 makes, ongoing...

It's time for Christmas cards. I need to learn to take good photo's!

Christmas 2010 makes... continued!

This was a little Christmas planning book that I made for myself, with pockets instead of pages so I will be able to use it again in the future!

Some Christmas 2010 makes...

I haven't posted photo's of my creations for ages, so please forgive me a little indulgence as I pop these up over the next few posts. All of these items were made in the run up to Christmas 2010 - my favourite time of year!

Reallllly sorry for the poor quality photo's - I promise that everything looked a million times better in the flesh ;)

I made Shaun a Tim Holtz inspired advent calandar for christmas, using gorgeous papers (I think My Minds Eye). It was fun to make and the pictures dont do it justice.

Pay it forward


I've just seen the fab post from Chris at Sketching Stamper who's running a PIF on her blog, and I decided to have a go too, regardless as to if I made it into her PIF or not!

So here it is (rules borrowed from Chris, thanks!): I promise to send something handmade to the first five people who comment on this post. But if you enter you must post this too, and offer something handmade to another five people that comment on your blog.

The rules are that it must be something handmade or homemade by you and it has to be sent to five other people during 2011, so we all have plenty of time :D!

If you'd like to join in the fun, then be among the first five to post a comment and something handmade or homemade will be coming your way at some point this year.

I promise I'll make it something good!
