Next live TV show on Create & Craft - Mon. 9th Nov @ noon!

Yes, yet another live show!

Here's another card from the last show with Kay's Funky Flowers stamp sheet. A simple card coloured with Tombow brush pens.

I know, I know, I've not been posting or commenting as I normally try to, but October was a busy time so I have just been flopped out for a bit since. It's my own fault for lifting those crates onto the darn trolley at the end of the Doncaster show that didn't help and on top of that I got a cold which knocked me for six too, so all in all, in amongst other things, not a good time!

I had a burst of energy on Tuesday, my back wasn't quite so painful and how strange that I felt a different person! Anyway, I spent a bit of time preparing for Monday's telly show and yesterday I got some more of the elements ready, I had made a list of ideas, and at least some have been done and I'm feeling a little less pressured about Monday's show now. I will play again tomorrow to finish things off.

I will be using Kay's latest collection of stamps again and wanted to demo different things from the ones I demo'd in the last show, although there'll still be shrink plastic! If I can get my bits together to form some cards then I will be even happier:)

Yes, it's me on my own on this one, I have been dreading the drive and had decided to go by train this time but, Mr Superman Stamp Man has stepped in to chauffeur me, phew, that is such a relief, as I know I couldn't do that loooooooooong drive at the moment. I didn't nag Ian, honest....OK, I'll stop whinging now!

Kay's 3 new DVD's are on their way to us, and they will all arrive on our website very soon! If you are a beginner at stamping, do start with the first one as Kay explains, very well, about different ink pads, of which there are many, and so much more, it will prove a great start to your new hobby. There's loads to learn on them all, so they are a good idea for you to add to your Christmas pressie list this year. We'll have a multi-buy offer too if you want to go for all 3 DVDs.

Kay has used some of her stamp designs on the DVDs, including her latest collection that I am showing on Monday's show.

What else do I have to mention, oh yes, Walnut Hollow products for metal embossing, I have now added them to our website. I tried the starter kit at our workshop last weekend and it has a good mix of stuff to get you started. There are other add-ons which you can gather as you go along, it really is great fun to do. I'll show you what I made as soon as I get them finished.

I've added a few new workshop dates to the website too, the workshop on Saturday November 14th is with Jill Boulton, grunge paper and metal embossing techniques, so another great workshop theme with a chance to try metal embossing if you missed out on last weekend's workshop.

More blog candy is coming soon, once I get a chance to get it together along with a photo, so do call back to join in.

Umm, I think that's all the waffle I have for today. Thanks for reading!!



  1. Don't worry about posting and commenting ... just keep the inspiration coming ... you are doing a great job X

  2. Ahhh sorry you've been under the weather, Jill. There are so many bugs about at the minute. Hope your feeling much better.
    I've got to go to the dentist on Monday so having your programme to look forward too will cheer me up no end!
    Enjoy your weekend.


  3. Like your card as you have got great designing skills. Love your samples.

  4. Sorry to hear you haven't been feeling well Jill, don't apologise for 'lack' of blog postings. I will set Sky+ for Monday and I know you you will be great.
    I will keep a close watch on your site for Kay's DVD's, just in time for me now that I have been 'plastered' LOL
    Love & hugs

  5. Hi Jill,
