It was a "Marillion" Night


What a brilliant night hunny.  Thank you so much for hosting an amazing workshop.

I have never laughed so much, or had so much fun.  In fact, the giggles stopped the demonstration at one stage.   Love all of ya.

So my many followers I guess you're wondering what we were doing .........

Yep you guessed correctly, we were playing with all the lovely Stampin Up Goodies.

And laughing with friends, old and new.  Brilliant fun was had by all.

So what did we do.  So much .........

Firstly we played with the new envelope punch board -

(Yes I know that seems to be about a lot .............. I love it, you can use it in so many ways ....... its a true must have!!)

Then we made some gorgeous cards using Stampin Up Punches and co-ordinating stamp sets

and then we played with the Envelope Punch board again.

So here's the makes and takes ........

Kayleigh, it was brilliant, loving the rest girls.

Yep it was a cracker of a time

Birds and Christmas Ornaments were the theme of the night.

We used several colour combinations, and used both the classic ink pads and the wonderful Stampin Markers to colour our stamps.

We used Polka Dot Pieces and Christmas Collectibles together with Co-ordinating Bauble Punch and Build a Bird Punch.

Lots of ribbon, glues and Shimmer Card was used.  Such a brilliant finish.

If you would love to have fun and giggles with your friends whilst learning new hobby or continuing your crafting journey then why not give me a call.

Do you have a special occasion coming up? ......

Perhaps a Christmas Party,

A special Birthday,

An engagement party,

A wedding ........

or even a baby shower.

Well anything really where you are having a get together and want to send gorgeous simple and stunning invites to friends, family and other guests.

Then I have the answer for you


These stunning creations are made using the New Envelope Punch Board, Stampin UP card stock and stamp sets, and our very versatile My Digital Studio programme

I got asked by a very good friend to make invites for her business 

for their 25th Anniversary party.  

Cindy wanted simple yet elegant invites for their party.  We choose Smoky Slate and Cherry Cobbler for the backgrounds and stampin.

I then used My Digital Studio to design the invite and the pocket labels.

These were printed off and added to the envelopements.

Simple, yet very effective.

I hope the party guests have as much fun as I had making their invites.

Congrats Shaun and Cindy on reaching 25 years.  Here's to 25 more.

If you have an occasion coming up and you would like to learn to make these or any other kind of invite then please contact me on

to arrange to meet and discuss your requirements.  I love helping people bring their ideas to life.  

We can work together in a one to one lesson so that you can go away and create your dream invites.


You can book a workshop at home for you and your friends to make them in a fun party atmosphere.

Kims Twitter - riffic party

Hi guys,

Wow, what a busy weekend it's been.  I need to get some sleep, but am wide awake.

Perhaps I have taken a little life lesson from one of the characters of my friend Kim's favourite bird.

The Owl.

Kim hosted a wonderful workshop at her house on Saturday.  She and her friends and family had an absolute ball.  It was great fun.

There was Stampin Up goodies everywhere.

We got to play with the new Envelope Punch Board, the owl punch, the Truly Grateful Stamp set and much much more

As a demo, it's great to see friends and family coming together and creating together. There was lots of laughter, and encouragement and much more.

Kim had requested Owls, so this is what they did.

As you can see they also had a play with the Bird Punch and in many cases combined the two, with gorgeous outcomes.

Instead of using the pastel shades in the 2013/15 we used the darker ones of the 2012/14 collection

 These being Summer Startfruit, Gumball Green, Raspberry Ripple, Strawberry Slush and Midnight Muse.  This is such a rich palette of colours and brilliant for any time of the year.

Whats more Kim, didn't stop there.  She borrowed my punch, whilst waiting for hers to arrive and kept punching and punching until ...........

She had decorated a much unloved photo frame and turned it into something unique and beautiful.   Kim this is gorgeous.  I just love it.

If you would love to be able to hostess your own workshop, or create something unique for your home, please give me a call and arrange your workshop.

Alternatively if you would like to purchase any of the items used to make the above items please visit my shop

Thanks for stopping by.
