September Review...

Happy Sunday,

Can you believe we have reached september already in the review of the year? this was a very busy month for me with my first demonstrations for Creative expressions as well as making samples for my TV debut which I had to keep secret (not easy for me!)

This card was loved bu loads of people however it was claimed by someone in Creative Expressions as her christmas card!  It was duly finished with a back and box and delivered to her a couple of weeks ago.

I have been asked to demo this triple stamping technique, one of Sue Wulsons famous techniques, everywhere I have down a demonstration.  I have planned a more spring like version using some special stamps for Create and Craft in early fabruary so will demo it live then.  keep and eye out as I love the stamps I will be using and have a very personal attachment to them! lol

Secondly is my card for the design team using Sue's new christmas dies (well new at the time lol)  This was used by Sue on her weekendder on Create and Craft which made me so proud!

I had to feature this card which Is another I made for Alexandra Palace big stamp and scrapbooking show.  This card I have seen copied in so many different colours which I take as a real compliment, this Christmas.  One of my colleagues on the Design Team for Creative Expressions even made a version of it in white and gold for a project worksheet so It must have proved popular!

  10. Hi John,
    My favourite is the second one. I really like the first one but HATE SNOW, so the sentiment/focal point would have to be different.
