Hunkydory Elegant Lady Card

Today, I'm sharing a quick card I made using some of Hunkydory's Dressed to Impress Card Kit...
I scored the topper down the two sides so that the side panels stood out and added some feathers and sequins behind...
I added a little cluster of resin flowers and enamel dots to the side of the embellishment which was backed onto some black glitter ribbon...
 Here's another little close up...
I loved the colours of this kit, so even though it was a little bit fancier than my usual style I totally fell in love with it!

Catching Up - Stitches Show and CHA news!

I've been away for most of this week at the Stitches trade show in Birmingham. I go every year but usually just for one day, however this year I had lots of exciting meetings planned and things to do so I stayed for the whole thing!

I was very lucky that when I got to the hotel, I was upgraded to a suite, so I had a star on my door and a little balcony opposite the bed (though it was far too cold and rainy to actually go out there!!)
For the first day my assistant Lisa came with me and we had a fab time checking out all the new products, including my brand new stamps for Personal Impressions!! (I still squeal a little when I see my new products)
When she left, I quickly rushed back to the hotel for the CHA UK AGM and networking event, I'm super pleased and proud to tell you that while I was there, I was elected to the board of directors! To even be considered was an honour, let alone selected and elected! So for the next 3 years I will be working on some very exciting projects for the craft industry alongside a number of fab industry experts (am I allowed to squeal again??)
After all of that excitement I treated myself to a little lie in in the squishy hotel bed (surprising how much sleep you can get when you don't have furry peeps snoring in your ear and trampling you! lol) before heading back for the last day of the show on Tuesday, I had lots of exciting meetings lined up and I can't wait to start telling you all the new and exciting things coming soon! I also got to have a little crafty time with Tania at WOW embossing, making this pretty pink ring...
I had dinner that night with the rest of the CHA UK board so we could all meet each other properly and then I was up early Wednesday for an all day board meeting (my first one!!) before heading home to Essex, I think my furry peeps missed me, what do you think??
Now, Lisa and I are frantically catching up with emails and things, and working on the reveal of this months 'A Few of My Favourite Things' kit (watch your inboxes this weekend!!) I will be back very soon with some crafty things and projects to show you very soon too.

La Fourmi Coaster Book

Hi Everyone

Big thank you to everyone that tuned in to the La Fourmi Create & Craft shows at the weekend, I've had so much great feedback from them and some questions that I will try my best to answer over the next week or so.

The most popular thing people have been asking me for is pictures of the Memory Book (The Adventures of Fuzzybutt) that I made from the coaster set, so here are a couple of pics for you...
The box is covered in Kaisercraft paper (also from the show) and I attached one of the coasters to the front (once they were embellished, there wasn't room for all of them in the box) the coasters were all painted white and had circles of paper from the same Kaisercraft collection on each side before being embellished.
The coasters were all decorated with Instagram pictures front and back to tell a story.

I'm so glad you liked this little sample, I tried to look for an alternative way to use them and make them a little more interesting!

Thank you for all of your lovely support and feedback, I will get to everyones questions here on my blog (and maybe over on YouTube) if you have any others to add, please just leave them here in the comments and I'll add them in! Lots of you have asked when I'm back, I should have some more dates and times for you soon.

Thank you for dropping by today!
