Sneak Peak...

Happy Tuesday,

I will be launching the One Day Special tomorrow night at 8pm on Hochanda with my selection from the Creative Expressions Craft dies by Sue Wilson January 2016 Release.  I can't wait to get started as I have some great techniques I have been working on to show you and, as usual for me, some different ways to arrange the die cuts.

Todays card is one of the samples I have made for the show using the Ravello Striplet ( one of my favourite ever striplets) Striplet dies always seem to be my go to dies when I want to make something with a different look at thats where I started with this card.    This will be one of the demos on the shows on Thursday so tune in at either 9am, 12pm, 4pm or last chance at 7pm to see how this one was made!



  1. Love the card love the striplet.I will be try to catch some of your shows for ideas.

  22. Good Morning John on a rather wet Tuesday morning. A beautiful card I love the design and your colour choice. hugs Shirleyxxxxxx

  23. Hi John,
    Striking card - I've got the Ravello so rather pleased to see it. Don't think I've used it yet, I have got so many of SW dies that there aren't enough hours in the day to play with them all. But I can't resist them, her designs are so beautiful.
    I shall be watching today and tomorrow, looking forward to it.
    Hugs, Rose

  24. Morning John. It is good to see a different use for the striplet dies and this one has created a very interesting effect. Can't wait for your shows.

  34. Good afternoon John,
    A beautiful card John and just right up your street flower in colour choice. I will be recording your show as i won't get a chance to be allowed to watch it and i hope that lovely embossing folder is going to be on it as well please. Have a lovely evening John and i know that you will probably be making up more cards to show but honest i think you will probably have enough made for a week of shows going by past ODS. Have fun flower,
