Beatrix Potter Appleby Dappley Great Demos

Morning all, hope you have all seen the new Crafters Companion Beatrix Potter release for Appleby Dappley it is absolutely gorgeous. Just thought I would let you all know that Susan from Crafty Nook in the indoor market in Durham is holding some demo's for this on Saturday, so if you are in the area don't miss the great opportunity, Susan would love to see you all.

This is just a simple sample of some I have made using just the stamps, embossing powder and some black and white card and paper. I made a set of small card and envelopes to go into the centre.

Well I was just sat down today watching Leann on Create and Craft when the phone rang, I was non to happy to say the least. But what a surprise it was someone from Debbi Moore Designs to say that I had won there competition in their first mag and had one £100 worth of their products. I am so excited can't wait for it to arrive.

Thought I would share

Hi I thought that I would share with you something that I made recently for Crafters Companion as a part of their design team. I used the Love stamps which they have had on Create and Craft today. I thought this set of champagne glasses was just right to make wedding stationery. I used Crafters Companion Ivory pearlesant card and used silver embossing powder. For the circle elements I used my spellbinders, for the greeting I just used word and changed the colour to a light grey to look like silver. These were really easy to make and I think they make lovely wedding stationery.
