Back To School Special!

Wow - is it just me or did the summer holidays fly by?

I'm sure those of you with school age children will be busy buying uniforms, bags and stationary ready for them to go back to school.  Have you got their face coverings yet?

If your child travels on public or school transport, then they will be needing a covering - plus it's looking likely that, particularly in secondary schools, that they will need one for 'common' areas where social distancing isn't possible.

So, to help your pennies go a little bit further, our Youth Size Face Coverings are available on a 'Buy 4 get 1 Free' offer.  All you need to do is add 5 YOUTH sized items to your basket, add the coupon code '5THFREE' and the system should take off £3.50 from your total (let me know if there are any problems).  This will give them one Face Covering to wear each day, and you can pop them all in the wash over the weekend ready for the following week.  This offer is only valid until 30th September, so get your's soon!

Check out the different fabric designs by clicking on the 'Online Shop' Tab above.

If your child's school has specified the colour/design of the face coverings they have to wear and they are not available in the shop, please let me know and I will do my best to get the right fabric.

Stay Safe!

Loyalty & Referral Points

Ooops - it seems that when playing around with the apps available on my Online Store system I accidentally added a Loyalty & Referral Points system πŸ˜–  Whilst this is something I am definitely considered, I haven't worked out all the details yet - or how the app even works.

So, for the time being I have suspended the Rewards System until I have the time to work it all out.  Apologies for the confusion - believe me, I'm just as confused as you probably are πŸ˜•

Lockdown Loss of Mojo :-(

Hi Guys

The more observant amongst you may have noticed a lack of postings for Technique Tuesday and Funky Fold Friday recently 😞  Well, since the launch of the new 2020/21 Annual Catalogue I have had a SERIOUS loss of Mojo, which I'm sure is not being helped by being in lockdown for 3 months!  So I just wanted to pop on and say sorry for the absence - I am still alive and kicking πŸ˜‰ but need to give my Mojo a boot up the rear end πŸ˜›

I'm still officially 'shielding' until 1st August but can't see life going back to anything like 'normal' for me until after Christmas - but I REALLY hope my Mojo comes back before then!!!  Please bear with me and I'll be back as soon as I can.

Technique Tuesday - The Spotlight Technique

Morning - and welcome back to Technique Tuesday following it's little holiday while I prepared for the Annual Catalogue Launch a couple of weeks ago.

Today I show you a very simple colouring technique called The Spotlight Technique.  It uses just card, ink, Designer Series Paper, a punch and 2 Sponge Daubers.  That's it!

I'd love to see what you create with this technique - add your pictures to my Facebook Page

Check out the video on YouTube.

Fabric Face Coverings Available To Order

Hi Guys

A small selection of our fabric range has arrived and I've started making Face Coverings in preparation for the changes in the rules for travelling on Public Transport in England from Monday 15th June. More fabric choices are on their way - including some more masculine designs as well as for the young people. Hopefully they will be with me early next week.

The masks are available in 5 sizes:-
Small Youth - 10cm (4") x 13.5cm (5 1/4") *
Youth - 11.5cm (4 1/2") x 15cm (6") *
Small Adult - 11.5cm (4 1/2") x 16cm (6 1/2") *
Adult - 13cm (5") x 17.5cm (7") *
Large Adult - 13cm (5") x 20cm (8") *
* To find the right size for you, measure from the bridge of your nose to the front of your ear - this is the first measurement. Next measure from the bridge of your nose to under your chin - this is the second measurement. Order the closet size to your two measurements.

The Face Coverings are worn using Ear Elastics - I will be adding Plastic Ear Savers to our range very soon which can help prevent chaffing behind the ears.

The sides of the lining are left open to allow you to add a filter if required. I do not sell these, but you can find lots of options online at sites such as Amazon, Ebay etc.

Legally I have to let you know that these are NOT medical grade face masks and in no way claim to prevent the wearer from catching Covid-19 or any other infection.


Youth sizes are £3.50 each or 3 for £9.50 (must be the same size but can be different fabric designs). Adult sizes are £4.00 each or 3 for £11 (again they must be the same size but can be different fabric designs).

Until I have set the shop up fully, if you want to place an order, send me an email with details of which fabric(s) and size(s) you want and I'll contact you with payment details. Postage & Packaging will be charged at cost.

Photos of the fabrics currently available are below - I'll add to these when others arrive.

Positive Thoughts 'Class In The Mail' Week 4 - Gorgeous Grape

Today was the last of my Positive Thoughts 'Class In The Mail' Zoom sessions - these 4 weeks have flown by!

This class was based around the Gorgeous Grape Kit and we each created a Pizza Box Gift Package using the Positive Thoughts Stamp Set and Gorgeous Grape, Highland Heather and Basic Grey Inks and Card.

Here is my finished box, along with those my ladies made - please visit the comments and leave them all some love :-) 

So that's it for this 'Class In The Mail'.  It was the first time doing classes this way, courtesy of Covid-19, but I've really enjoyed it, and so have my ladies.  I have already posted details of the next 'Class In The Mail' over on my Facebook Page and have others in the pipeline, so watch this space.

Don't forget my Annual Catalogue Launch Party on Wednesday 3rd June - more details can be found HERE - I hope to see you then.

In the meantime,
Stay Safe and Happy Stampin'
