Demo's Today...

Happy Sunday,

Another sneak peak of the new Couture Creations dies and embossing folders Ill be demoing on todays shows.  This time a beautiful swirl die as well as an intricate birdcage and bird die.  Ive teamed these up with Blush pink Foundation card and Spun Sugar distress ink as I felt we needed some lighter but bright colours as we slip slowly into January.

It's certainly a pink fest which I know is rare for me but somehow I thought it might be a fun colour and card to give someone after new year.

Hopefully some of you will be able to tune in at 12 or three to see me and more importantly the demo's and products!

  8. Hi John
    Good luck today! (You won't need it!) A lovely card today! It's so nice to see the new season's ideas after all the Christmassy cards. I love the Christmas cards with gold and silver and glitter, but it's lovely to see different colours once Christmas is packed away. Best wishes, Anne O
