Christmas mini card & Parcels
Hope you’re all ok. I’m sitting snuggled in a chair having a sit down. Had a busy but lovely weekend catching up with old friends and family. Had some amazing desserts and one of our friends did some action with a blow torch onto a creme brûlée. All my kids then wanted to play with it!
Today’s card is so simple- I used the tiniest of stamps that I’d probably have overlooked normally. Just shows that you can do so little with tiny elements and still make it special.
I’ve just received several parcels. Soo exciting. First was a humongous one from DoCrafts with all the supplies needed for the 24th Nov when I’m doing a 6hr demo at Abakhan in Liverpool. I’m there from 10-4; come and say Hi!
The second parcel was full of bargain stamps I need for some Christmas projects. The third was full of this;
A wonderful prize from Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine for a challenge I won. Pretty good huh- and the rolls are some American Craft sparkle tape; I’d never heard of it before-its glitter on a sticky tape but without the ‘shedding’-but will be perfect for all the Christmas makes I’m planning. Thanks C & P!
On a personal side- me and my craft table are going to spend a lot of time together. Last week I was so busy prepping for a conference I had no time to do anything else. This week I have several mag commissions to get finished.
I have had a few exciting weeks. The past 3 submission calls from Paper Crafts mag have accepted projects from me. Couldn’t quite believe it- and last call they wanted 4!!! I’ve been busy sending off little packages to the US. I love being part of this craft world- I’m ‘meeting’ some truly amazing people.
Another bit of fun is the Hero Arts publication incentive- if you use their stamps and get published- they’ll give you free stuff for the first 4 publications and then pay you beyond that. Such a fab idea. I’m waiting for my first parcel full of inspiration to arrive!
Need to go and ‘create’ some tea. Shame you can’t eat sparkle tape!!
See you when I’ve wrapped my first Christmas present ( yes, I’m determined to wrap at least one this week! ) Xx
