New Mini Catalogue is HERE !!

Hi All, What a glorious day day it is, the sun's shining, birds are singing and...........the 'mini' has gone live!! There's so much to let you know about and show you. Of course the biggest news is we have the 'Big Shot'.... yes.......THE 'BIG SHOT'.........(hope you covered your ears then....LOL!!) Thank you to all of you, that supported me with the launch'll be pleased to know the orders have been placed. If you haven't clapped your eyes on a catalogue, you can either click on the sidebar picture to view online; or......if you don't already have a demonstrator, drop me a line and I'll pop one in the post to you.
Now, I suppose I ought to show you at least one project I've made! These bookmarks are taken from an idea shown by Dawn Griffiths. Each design is cut out from a 'Big Shot' die. I stitched the ribbon on and glued in between the layers, as I didn't wish them to fall apart. I'll put more 'Big Shot' projects on the blog as the days go by...........but there's loads of other stuff too! Like..........images for men. I always have problems creating men's cards, so the inclusion of 2 single stamps are a godsend. The 1st, a very simple card, with the addition of eyelets and crystal effects. The 2nd a sailing boat; which in this instance I decided to get my brayer out and play!! I then decoupaged the sails and spritzed the sea with shimmer paint for that extra little sparkle (I think you can just make it out in the photo).

Then, on another one......I made a boo boo - getting marks on the finished image, (being a true crafter) I was determined not to throw it away and decided to try and disguise them, by slotting it into part of a distressed map. Distressing is really not my style, I hated screwing up brand new DSP........LOL!!.........but I'm happy with the overall effect.

Maybe I'll have to give it another go......what do you think?

Bye for now
