Clearly Besotted October Release Day

Welcome to the Clearly Besotted Release Day!! There are 8 fabulous sets (more than I’ve been able to showcase) so check out the Facebook page to see them all in detail. For this last day I decided to use the elegant ‘Snow Scenes’ set.

There are lots of people who you might not want to send cute cards to, but this set is great for a whole host of people. I didn’t do anything with the set other than just colour it in, but you could do something wonderful with just the top and adding stencilled fireworks in for New Year’s greetings.

Yet again, I’ve liberally added glitter wherever I could. It’s fair to say that I’m actually wearing a good deal on my face too; that stuff just gets everywhere!

You might have noticed that the images are centred properly with each other. That’s because I had intentions of doing a different design and cutting each section out, but then I decided to just colour them as I’d stamped them, hoping you wouldn’t mind my inaccuracy!

There’s something warm and welcoming about the set, even thought it’s a cityscape. I really rather love it.

It’s time to go and see the rest of the team. First up is the Clearly Besotted Blog. Then onto Michelle, Lisa and our lovely guests Francine and Alberto (on Instagram).

As usual, the release goes live at 8pm GMT (BST). All sets are available tonight on the Clearly Besotted store and also from Simon Says Stamp , Art CreatiuCloud 9 Crafts and Card Nouveau too.

Don’t forget to enter into the giant giveaway over on the Facebook page for Clearly Besotted. It’s always a major prize winning the whole release!

I’d love to hear about your favourite sets of this release. Which ones are you eyeing up?!

See you soon,

Clearly Besotted October Teasers Day 4

Hey! Welcome to another day of teasers. I hope you’re all feeling the festive spirit and are enjoying the teasers. We’re going a little further afield today with a little card starring some Christmassy cacti. How fun would these be in your house. We’ve also got a little meerkat popping up through the snow covered soil!

Clearly Besotted always designs the most fun stamp sets and there are merry meerkats ready to mingle amongst the succulents and cactus plants. This set is called Merry Meerkat !

Isn’t the sentiment just perfect?! I’d like to say there’ll be some sharp dressing in our house over Christmas but I have a feeling it’ll be relaxed and comfy. I’m not sure there’ll be the same amount of Christmas night outs as previously, but you can dream!

There’s plenty of snow glitter to jolly up proceedings and the meerkat looks like he’s having just the best time. All the images have been coloured in with Copic markers.

There’s plenty more inspiration as we countdown until release day tomorrow. Pop over to the Clearly Besotted blog, then onto Michelle, Lisa and our lovely guests, Francine and Alberto (@loshakeratoalberto on Instagram).

It’s release day so do come around again to see my last project,

Christmas Demonstration & the wrong Body Parts

Thought I’d post one of my demonstration projects for tomorrow at Abakhan, Liverpool. I’m there from 12-3 and am going to be using stamps from the last Creativity magazine. They come free with the mag and this is the simplest project.
I’m going to show one card three ways- going from simple to more advanced. Lots to see- come and say hello! If you like cute – you’ll love these stamps.

I have been to the woods this morning with 60 4-5 year olds. Thankfully I wasn’t alone- there was an army of mums,teachers and helpers. The kids spent an hour searching for interesting things in the forest. We didn’t find too much other than loads of leaves. The kids were busy being silly and funny and I came home for a rest!!
When I picked Will up from school after my little dental escapade, he greeted me shouting
‘Mum did they take your guts out?’!!the other mums laughed. I told them that my guts still remained and Will looked very confused.
Steve, in an effort to explain what I was having done had said something like
” she’s having her gum cut open’.
Yep. You can understand the confusion!
The little kids didn’t really understand. Jamie was worried about me but really wanted to see the damage and Harriet just wanted to make me a cup of tea.
Love their differences.
Fortunately I’m able to talk and laugh now ( just). Good job. A silent craft demo could be a little disappointing.

See you when I’ve come out of my sleeping bag (it’s freezing – and no, I’m not asleep, just getting warm!!) xx
