BLOG CANDY .. Sealed with a little kiss …… Sneaky Peak ….

Hello all

I have once again let myself down terribly with my lack of bloggy posts…. I have no excuse other than I have been very very busy, up and down the road to Ideal World and also beavering away on new products for you all, even little prods from Claire could not make me lose my focus!. I am hoping to redeem myself fully, by offering you a sneaky peak of the POW launch on Friday on Create and Craft, and the reason I have been *absent* from the bloggy world…..

We are launching a fabulous range of Rubber Stamps “Sealed with a little kiss” (Swalk), with a CD which has been designed to complement the stamps perfectly it features stunningly beautiful design sets, borders, alphabets, inserts, verse writer etc, BUT also included are 2 full sets of co-ordinating papers plus really useable co-ordinating flowers that can be resized and layered to make fabulous co-ordinating embellishments.

To celebrate the launch Sara is offering the complete Pick of the Week to one lucky winner drawn at random at midnight Saturday 17th July and announced on Sunday 18th July. To enter for the prize is really easy, visit The Crafter’s Companions News and Inspiration Blog, and follow the instructions.

To help celebrate the launch I’m offering a little Candy too – the stamp set I’ve used for my sneaky peek “Sunshine”. All you need to do is leave a comment here telling me what you think of this new range. Then pop a post on your blog, if you have one, linking back here…… The other Design Team members also have some candy to offer, so pop along to their blogs to see what beautiful cards they have made for their sneak peeks (all the candies are different so you could gather quite a little stash…..)


and last but my no means least….. my pal Claire

I will draw my Candy winner on Saturday Evening and post it before I head back off to Ideal World for the shows on Sunday….

I hope you will all be watching the release on Friday in case you miss it here is a timetable of the shows:

Create and Craft Friday 16th 11am (2 hours launch) (Leann)
Create and Craft Sunday 18th 10am and 2pm (1 hour both) (Leann)
Create and Craft Monday 19th 8am (1 hour) (Leann)
Create and Craft Tuesday 20th 8am (1 hour) (Sara)

Can’t wait to find out what you all think of this range…..

Now onto how I have made my card. I have made a 5.5 inch square easel Card. Stamped my sunshine image and coloured with Copics. Which I have matted and layered onto contrasting card punched in the order with a Martha Stewart Corner Punch. I have matted and layered the card base with papers printed from the CD, diecut a ribbon border with a Marianne designs ribbon border die (in the cuttlebug) threaded with ribbon and finished with a beautiful layered flower printed from the CD ….

I’m looking forward to hear what you think of this range…

Good Luck

I am back with a PROMISE and some CANDY …….

Hi all – I am back – and back with a vengence! I have made myslef a promise that I will update this site at least twice a week no matter what life throws at me! I have neglected you all so and I am truly sorry for that …. so I have decided a peace offering will be the order of the day ……. I am going to have my first dabble with some CANDY – Blog Candy! I am going for a good old rootle around my craft room to see what I can find for you…. I will have it ready and posted by 7pm tonight (sooner if I can – HUGE GRIN) – and whilst on the topic of Blog candy – I am posting a link to a wonderful blog by a very talented lady called Jacqui Dennis, who I had the good fortune to meet at the Crafters Companion Craftaganza in November.  Jacqui is a fellow Crafters Companion Design Team Member, and has some wonderful candy available – you can find it here “Cats Whiskers” – and some fabulous inspirational ideas.

Ok I’m off to tidy through the piles – EEK – to find some worthwhile Candy for you ……..

Looking forward to seeing you all a lot more often from now on

Happy Crafting

Hugs, Leann x
