In The Pink – a sneak peek

Morning everyone (actually it’s almost afternoon!)

So no doubt you will have seen, the fabulous sneak peeks from the Die’sire DT sneaking up all over the place, and I wanted to join in so I thought I’d take the opportunity to show you two of my favorite things from the up-coming Pick of the Day.  I love my job!

If you read my blog regularly you will no doubt have realised how excited I get about our launches and when we bring you new and exciting stuff.  Can I just tell you that my excitedness is OFF THE RADAR just now……….  This Pick of the Day, is the one I have been looking forward too for sooooooo long 🙂

Not only do I have the eBosser on the show for the first time since it sold out in 14 minutes!  But the most fantastic range of embossing folders and Quilling flower dies too.

So for this sneak peek, I have made a pretty little gift box in tones of pinks from the fabulous coredinations range.



I’ve used, possibly, my favourite embossing folder in the history of the world ever! the brand new A4 patchwork folder! I know I know your jaw has dropped and you are speechless at how beautiful it is 🙂



I am so proud of this new launch because the full range has been put together by me, for you, I’ve picked the sizes and designs that I want to use all the time, useful everyday, for all occasions, designs, which I am certain you are going to love.  This Patchwork one is one of my proudest moments 🙂



The top of the box has beed decorated with Camelia and Marigold Quilling flower dies, from the Die’sire range, with one of our stunning Diesire scalloped tags inked in aged mahogany distress ink and stamped with one of Sheena’s beautiful sentiments

These flowers are so easy to put together, for the camelia I have used camelia small and camelia large quilling dies.  I rolled a small strip really tight to make the centre bud, I have then continued with one more strip of small and then large layers, it’s so quick and easy with the eBosser and our dies, because of the quality of the dies, and the even and continuous pressure of the eBosser you can cut two layers of core’dinations in one go! yes two!



The “carnations” have been made with the Marigold die  each carnation is cut in one go as you only need two strips! I know! It’s hard believe but it’s true.  To make them really look like carnations I have used the aged mahogany from the tag and inked the tips I think it works a treat to make them look like carnations 🙂



This is actually one of  my demo’s for the Pick of the Day Shows, really looking forward to them and seeing you there, give me a wave, I’ll wave right back

I think these are a must have for any crafter weather new or a old hand & I can’t wait to get my hands on them all of them, I think i’d better make the bank manager a special card with them to show him why i need them lol. I’ll be waving, claping & wowing at the telly Leann if this box is anything to go by, I think you should make a CD of some, no all of you demo’s Leann & show us how to make them without the rush of being on live T.V I know i would buy it.
