Happy Tuesday crafty friends.

Today I wanted to do something a little different with the Botanical Blooms set. This is an amazing set that also has a few options for free with Sale-A-Bration.

I hope you like it.

Here is a taste of an upcoming class focusing on the very popular and useful Envelope Punch Board from Stampin! Up.

 These are a perfect little gift holder for that special someone.  The one on the left, the Mug is 5 1/2 inches high and can hold quite a few 'goodies'
The smaller, 'teacup', is perfect for a little treat.  These were the very first ones I had made so i've found a few faults that I now have to fine tune and perfect.  Maybe I might make a few of these for the Made With Love Markets next month.  What do you think?

These are the products that I used to make the Botanicals card:

Happy Weekend

Hi crafty friends, Wow! What a weekend.  My bestie and I went to a dear friend's wedding yesterday and it was beautiful.  The bride wore traditional white but true to her spunky personality, she and her bridesmaids wore Converse joggers.  It was an awesome touch.   I wish the beautiful couple a happy and wonderful life together.
On a crafty note..........only 4 weeks until the Made with Love Markets.  This will be the first time it's going to be held at the Park Beach Plaza carpark on the 20th Mach.  I'm really looking forward to being a part of these markets.  Talented crafters from all over the north coast of NSW come to these markets and it's an amazing day for everyone.  Now, I need to get busy and create!
I'm actually in the middle of creating my class kits for our very first kit of the month.  It's going to be held on the 12th March at 12pm. If you're interested, please rsvp by sending me a message via email or phone by the 1st March.  We will be creating 3 cards, all with increasing difficulty in technique.  The cost of the class is $35.  This is made up of a $22 Speedball brayer which it a premium quality brayer, and $13 for the supplies and lesson.  It's great value and I hope you can come.

This weeks hostess code is NV9XGH9M.  Anybody that places an order of $50 or more will receive a free gift from me.  Make sure you use the hostess code  if your order is under $250 but if it's over let me know and I will be happy to help you gain your own Stampin' rewards.

Makers Market @ Coffs Central

Hi crafty friends, today I took the massive leap into the world of markets!!!! For the first time I ventured out to the lovely Coffs Central Shopping Centre to their weekly Makers Market.  Here local crafters and artisans display and sell their goods.  There is nothing quite like being able to talk to your customers directly and alternately, talk with the makers of all info crafty.  I set up a variety of crafty treats on display and for sale. Armed with my Bestie, and of course coffee, we had an amazing day.  We met so many new people who share such a love for this craft.  There were a few stand out personalities who I look forward to a wonderful friendship with.  I would like to thank everybody for all their kind words and encouragement.   Hopefully, I will be coming to Coffs Central on a fortnightly basis, so I hope to see you there.  Happy crafting

Hi again all you awesome people! I hope everyone has had an amazing day.  Last night my beautiful and talented daughter and I started playing with the Curvy Keepsake die. I've wanted this die for so long. No idea why i've waited until not to get it, but am I ever so glad I did. This die is amazing!!!

  We made ourselves and 'army' of bunnies for Easter as well as a few other punch art variations. The bunnies were super easy to put together using simple punch art techniques. How cute are they.  I can see this becoming a necessary item for all my special occasions.  Good night and wishing you loads of crafty goodness. ❤️ Tan
