On Safari!!!!!!!

Well, as usual it has been a manic few weeks since my last blog post, although I did have a weekend off! When I say I had a weekend off, I mean that I was not doing any demo's or workshops!

The weekend after my workshop at Coleman's Craft Warehouse was free, so I decided to take my good friend Martine (from Oyster Stamps) to the Big Demo Day at Coleman's Craft Warehouse - I just love this place, the staff are so friendly and the customers are great and as for craft goodies, it is like going to a mini NEC they have such a selection. So I popped over to Rochester to collect Martine, then we headed up to Northampton - I wish I had taken a picture of Martine when we entered Coleman's - her jaw almost hit the floor and her eyes blinged up!!! It was very strange walking around whilst there were demo's going and some of the customers asked when was I going to start demoing!!!! So after a few hours walking the aisles, watching the demo's and emptying the credit cards we headed home. On the way back we decided to stop off at Ikea - I love this shop, but it has been a good few years since I visited. A big thanks to the lovely Martine for her company - it was a fab day out x

On Saturday 14th June saw another return to Daisy's Jewel Crafts in Coventry run by the lovely Wendy & Geoff - another amazing shop, with so much crafty goodness! This visit saw me playing with my new favourite toy, the Gelli Plate together with some Clarity Stamps & Stencils

Then it was time to head off to Peterborough for to get ready for my "Safari Trip" on Create & Craft on Sunday. Normally I make samples for Katy Sue Designs, but this time I wanted to concentrate on the demo's for the TV. The samples were sent to Daisy's Jewels for me to collect and I couldn't resist having a sneaky peak - WOW! WOW! WOW! I was totally blown away with what the design team had come up with.

So after a restful night in the hotel, Sunday morning arrived and it was time to head over to the studio and set up - the team that work in the background are amazing - they are friendly, helpful and a great laugh. 

I really wish that you could see the samples in real life, they are amazing!

Then it was time to go live! Dean is great to work with and is just as funny off screen as he is on screen

I have no idea where the time went and as for the stock, it flew out the door - so thank you to everyone that tuned in, sent emails and bought the CD & Stamps as well as the team at Katy Sue Designs for allowing me to showcase this fabulous CD & Stamp set.

I just wanted to add some pictures of 2 of my favourite samples from Margaret Waters

If you missed out on the TV show the products used were the new Double CD

and 2 different sets of stamps

The Double CD is jam packed - Theatre Cards, Decoupage (in 3 sizes), Tags, Backing Papers, PNG files, Card Toppers, Sentiments - you can see from this picture how much is on the CD's as it took me ages to print it all off, but was a good place for Dean to lean on!

They are available now from Katy Sue Designs HERE where you can also find some more finished samples

Happy Crafting!
