Launch Day...

Happy Friday,

If you get chance join me on Hochanda tonight at 6pm for the launch of the One Day Special ( Freeview 85 , Sky 673 or online at and the launch of my new Bee Balm collection.  There are some new releases in the Additions and media die ranges as well as some really useful Based Card dies.

I thought I would hare a card made using the collection today featuring the flowers which are stamped and die cut in one pass using my Flower Plate idea ( tune in to see how easy this is to use!)

Of course I added a few of the butterflies, from the smaller butterflies set this time, using the same linen card ( a new style of card that will be on the show) as the background over a glittered butterfly.

I will be on tonight at 6pm and 8pm with shows tomorrow at 9am, 1pm and final call at 5pm.



  1. Love it John. I,m sure it they will be a sell out, xxx
    Good luck

  16. Hi John. I am looking forward to seeing you on TV with you new range. It all looks fantastic. I can understand why you threw everything at this card to show off as much as you could, however, it's a bit too busy for me and the flowers aren't shown off as much as they could be, sorry.

  23. Hi John,
    oh my word these are gorgeous and so very pretty.
    Your creative genus is amazing and so good for us crafty people, but not good for our bank balances.
    Still trying to catch up on you earlier collections.

    May I ask with the new privacy laws today I have you blog on my side bar of my blog this tells me when you have posted and gives me easy access to you blog because of my eye sight probs.
    Is it all right that I have your blog on my side bar.
    I have put up a privacy piece for those wanting to be taken off it, but as you don't have time to visit I thought I would ask you this way.
    Lots of crafty regards. Jenny L.
