Autumn/Winter Mini Catalogue Party....

Just a quick note to say that I am holding a new Autumn/Winter Mini catalogue party this Saturday 15th Sept from 1.00pm to 3.00'ish. You'll get the chance to see some of the new products, with a Make & Take using some of these. There will also be some retired items from this years main catalogue & some sneak peaks from the new 2012/2013 Main catalogue that comes out on 1st Oct - there are sooooo many scrummy new things in this new catalogue, its almost double the size of this years outgoing one!
( Tried to get the link on, but loads changes made to blogging site that dont know how to do them anymore!!)  -not sure if this has worked!

So if you are in the Horsham area this weekend, feel free to drop in.....

Happy crafting, Teresa xx

Happy Birthday Margaret

Just a quick post with a card I have made for my best friends Mum. I wont say how old she is, but I think the card gives it away! She certainly doesn't look her age, I must say!

I love making easel cards as it gives an extra dimension to the card.

Items used:

Su products: Melon Mambo & black card stock; Happy birthday from Curly Cute stamp set; die cut numbers from Timeless Type Alphabet Jr.

Other products: Kraft card blanks; Penny Black stamped image; dazzling diamonds; recycled satin ribbon; Cuttlebug Swiss dots embossing folder.

Hope you like it- I am busy doing up some card classes, ready to book in the calender. I have also had my sneak peak new SU Autumn/Winter Mini catalogue goodies arrive, so will be making up some projects for some classes. They are stunning items, cant wait to show you....

Was my first day back to work today after being off for most of college summer holidays- cannot believe where the time has gone to- roll on October half term!!

Happy crafting......

HELLO, HELLO.........

Hello, again,my friends, Hello.... Just popped back to say HELLO!

Well where has the time gone to? I cannot believe that it has been so long since I last posted!
I have been around -crafting, drooling over everyone else's blogs, letting work & life get in my way.... so I thought I would would try to make more of an effort in the future...thats what my teachers always told my parents on Parents eves, many moons ago- can do it ,but just needs to concentrate & can do better! I think thats the story of my life!

I thought I would show a couple of some of the cards that I have remembered to take a picture of....

This one was for my cousin & uses the retired "Cheers to You" stamp set & all SU products, except for the Quickutz die for the lettering.

This one is uses all SU products & the 'Everything Eleanor" stamp set. I cased this one from a very talented lady Jo Dumbleton (

This one was for a crafting friend, again using SU products.

This one was made for my Nan, who went into hospital this week, again using SU products & the "Everything Eleanor" stamp set-I so love this set, it is so versatile to use. 

I am getting all excited, as I am waiting for my UPS man to bring my pre-order goodies for the new SU Autumn/Winter catalogue, which starts Sept 1st. You can contact me for a catalogue. There are sooooo many scrummy new things inside & I want pretty much all of them again! Cant wait to get my hands on the new ornament & die set- look out I can see a lot of demo classes coming with this one! When you see it you'll know why!!

Keep crafting... until later, Teresa x

I've been playing......

I have had these Sizzix dies for a while now & thought it was about time they came out to play.....
I have put off making them for a while as they looked fiddly to make- quite the opposite-easy, peasy they were! I can see a class in the future with these little devils!
The first one was made using the following: Sizzix Bigz Pillow Box die; Tim Holtz-Alterations- Tattered Flowers; Marianne design leaf; SU papers-"Sweet & Sour Speciality" & "Newsprint"; pearls & SU"Cake Crumb" ink to distress edges of flower.
The other boxes have been made using the Sizzix Bigz die- Box with Ornate Window.
Also used: Prima flowers; Marianne Design leaf die; Martha Stewart leaf punch; card, Magnolia gems & gems from stash.
SU supplies: card- Cake Crumb, Very Vanilla & Baja Breeze; paper-"Springtime Vintage"; "Tiny Tags" sentiment & punch; Baja Breeze seam binding; SU Embosslet- "Butterfly Wings"; Bigz- Butterfly Wings; Sanded background stamp & Cake Crumb ink.
Right, think that covers it all! If you look really closely,you can see the teenie tiny butterflies that I put around the seam binding ribbon, that are from the Embosslet die. Luuuuvvve this die!
Just need to think what I am going to fill them with now- would be great filled with choccies, a little gift or some mini cards & envelopes!
Will be back later with the class I am holding on Tuesday of next week, if anyone would be interested in coming along.
Catch you later, keep crafting......

Flutterby, Butterfly......

I am sooooooo..... loving this butterfly die & the Beautiful Wings Embosslits from the Summer Mini Catalogue. Again they were ones that I didn't really want, but after seeing what other people were creating with them, I had to have them!

These have been made with the "Springtime Vintage" papers, card stock & parchment paper. The flowers are from my garden!
I have been adding them to loads of projects as they are so versatile. I have made a couple of projects with them, but cannot show you yet as have made them for my swaps at Convention in November- I only hope that what I have used is not on the Retired list that comes out soon! If so, then it will be back to the drawing board!

I am also in luvvvve with the Mini Milk Carton die- I really didn't like it when I first saw it as it was smaller than I expected, but it has won me over! This is going to be part of another class I hope to hold, and I have a Christmas version planned also.
The idea for the carton was taken from the Mini Catalogue, I just changed the colours. The carton holder is from a talented SU demo called Chiaki Haverstick, who I found on my blog hopping travels. You can see more of her creations here.

I hope you like them...

Catch you later.....
