A Lovely Assortment!

Hello friends

Reporting back after a great day at The Artistic Stamper yesterday,
the rain held off so I got my burger from the barbecue - important stuff you know!

Here I am...oh look, it looks very much like I'm chatting!
I took along kits for a Make and Take,
a sticky note holder featuring Victorian Picket, Romantic Vines, Marisa's Bouquet
and Sentiments 5.
Over 30 were made in total and between my nattering I took some photos...
six of them - I can definitely natter!

I love seeing how everyone creates their kits differently,
take a closer look at this one...
Gemma Hynes - a fellow demonstrator decided to alter the die cuts, 
I love what she has done with various inks/paint.

All dies mentioned are available from Elliott  - go on, keep him busy! :)

Today I'm back in my cabin as I've got quite a lot of projects to prep for TV...
resisting this button...
Take care friends - wishing you all sunshine.

  7. Lovely photos Christine, glad you had a fab day. Love seeing different peoples take on the same project. Have fun prepping x xhazel

  8. Hi Christine. Have just caught up and am sorry to hear that your Mum had to have an op. I hope she makes a very quick recovery. Please give her a hug from me. The different takes on the kits are all beautiful, glad that you had a great day, and that you managed to get your burger: ) I'm sure you will get everything ready in time for the TV show, in the end. I am looking forward to seeing you demoing. At least Elliott has stepped in to help with the die cutting so that is one less thing to worry you and your Mum. Take care xx

  9. Good morning Christine
    Glad to hear you had a good day yesterday and that you got your burger. The notepads look brilliant. I like to see how people alter the kits - everyone always has there own crafty take on things.
    I am looking forward to the new channels launch. Don't panic I am sure you will get everything completed in time. Whenever I feel a little panicky I always write everything down in a list and them cross things off as I go. It is always very satisfying to cross things off the list.
    Enjoy your day

  10. Hi Christine, So glad to hear that your workshop went well, the piccies of the different makes look gorgeous.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

  12. Hello Christine,
    All the ladies have made beautiful note holders. It's a good tip to alter the die cuts with inks and stamps. Don't panic, don't press the button, you'll do a wonderful job. We all have faith in you (that's sure to panic you more - sorry!!!!)
    Love Maureen xxxx
