Sense of Time Birthday Card

After a busy week of classes, events and collecting new stock, I needed to relax and thought I would try out my new stamps.
I just loved this stamp set and could not resist heat embossing in bronze embossing powder as it was just the right colour. I also stamped the small cogs you see down the right hand side. I will certainly be using this set again.

Better go, a day of sorting out from our craft class yesterday and the new stock that has arrived - have a good weekend - lots of coffee may be required!!!

Hope you enjoy

Just back from "Stitches" & got to see Tim Holtz in Action!!!!

Just a quick post to share with you that we are back from "Stitches" at the NEC in Birmingham and have lots of fab new stock arriving within the next few weeks and we got to see the fabulous Tim Holtz in action!! Sharon even got him to sign her Tim Holtz "Compendium of Curiosities" book - how jealous am I !!!!!

The show was bigger and better than last year and certainly gave us lots of inspiration to bring fab new brands to Inspire Creationz - we will post again in the next few weeks once we have had a play with all the new goodies - we just wanted it all....

Inspire Creationz Classes - Valentines Coffee Cake & Craft Class

Morning All,

Just thought I would share with you the valentines cards and treat bags we made at our class yesterday. We had 8 very talented ladies who joined us and had a really good afternoon making lots of goodies and trying out lots of new techniques.

Here is the class concentrating hard!

We made a mixture of Valentines and spring themed treat bags and cards. We had so much fun and would like to say a big thank you to everyone who attended.

Here is a pic of every ones creations:

Colour Inspirations - Paris in Mint & Brown

This week has been really manic - hardly any time to craft but I just wanted to show this card I made after visiting a craft sale on Sunday with the lovely Victoria from Blue Jelly Stampin.

Her cards are fab and after seeing her creations, I couldn't wait to have a play with brown & mint green card. These are not my usual colours but work really well together and will certainly be using them more often...
Time for a coffee before I start my planning for my class on Saturday :-)
