Stampin' Up Shares

Thank you to everyone who took part in the last two paper shares I have run with the lovely new Stampin' Up papers & ribbons.

I currently have a marker share running that needs 3 more participants where you purchase your markers as part of the marker share & then eacj month one of the participants gets the carry case, which is not only a great way to store the pens in the colour families but as they are double ended pens they need to be stored horizontally as it proplongs there life.

I also have a designer paper share running which needs 8 people to participate.

I was wondering if anyone has some of the goodies on their wish list that they would like me to run a share of. I am open to all suggestions the only criteria to put a share together the products must all be divisable by the same number of participants.

I look forward to hearing your suggestions.

The crazy lady is let loose in Tesco's

If anyone was watching me this morning whilst wandering around Tesco's they would have been on the phone to the funny farm to get the men in white coats to come and get me.
I have seen these amazing card boxes / bin on peoples blogs and also there is a thread about them running on ILWS.

Box 1

Box 2

So there I was before work this morning combing the aisles of my local Tesco with a packet of c6 envelopes in my hand measuring all of the boxes to see if they fitted the bill for this project, I carefully emptied the boxes & e stacked the shelves. I found 3 that were suitable but the one I really wanted was full. So back I went after work & it was half empty, again i carefully re stacked the shelves & took the box. The checkout assistant thought it was hilarious & was intrigued why I wanted them, when I explained she thought it was a cool idea.
I can only imagine what the security guards were thinking if they were watching the cctv footage.
So next time you see someone acting odd in a supermarket........................It could be me on another mission to find something to alter.

Marker pen share

Do you love the Stampin' Up marker pens?
Would you love the whole set including the case without having to pay out nearly £100 in one go?

Have you thought about joining a marker share club?

I need 4 people for this to go ahead. each person will pay £26.25 for 4 months. Each month you will get one set of the markers. Each month ONE person will ge the case, so this means at the end of the 4 months you will all have received the whole set of pens and the big storage case to keep them in.

Pament can be made by Cheque or Pay Pal.

If you would like any further nformation, just e-mail me.

Looking for inspiration for flower card swap

Over on ILWS I am running the may swap and it was decided that we would try a themed swap, Flowers everywhere is he chosen theme.

I have been searching around for inspiration & these are two of the cards I have come up with, I am not using either so i thought i would share them with you.

The card below is a winter cloche hat in chocolate chip the stamp in the flower is from the scandinavian season set from the Mini catalogue, this set is available until 30th September 2009. So if you fancy this georgous Christmas set its only available for a short time. You can place an order with me at anytime by e-mailling me.

If anyone fancies joining a 10 card swap over on ILWS please pop over and check out the post.

Thank you's

A couple of thank you's for lovely hand crafted items I have received this week.

The first i received last week from another Stampin' Up demonstrator in with her submissions to swap 6.
Its a really cool idea & inside is a packet of tissues.

Another thank you goes to my upline Michelle who popped into see me last night & bought me Stampin' up notebook & pen.

Both items are proudly displayed in my craft room............... A big thank you too you both.
