Otter Nurseries Demo - Valentines cards

 Hi all,  My next demo is coming up on Sunday 27th January at Otter Nurseries from 10.00 - 4.00pm.

Come along and see the latest range of products from DoCrafts and watch the Demonstrations.

I'll be making Valentines Day Cards as well as demoing lots of other exciting products.

The new Die's are now in and I just love the Heart Die - so intricate and pretty. The "Build a Scene" Dies are also very adaptable and I'll have a variety of samples to show you displaying how they can be used for different effects. I even use what's left over from the cut out to make pictures but you'lle have to come along to the demo to see what I mean.

Out now too is the Chronology and Vintage range -  Lovely strong masculine colours for the chronology range and very soft and feminine colours in the Vintage range.

I will be playing with the Artiste Paints making background papers and Zig pens as well so please come along and take a look at the demo.

 Hope to see you there....

I hope you enjoy the video - please leave a comment as I'm always looking for constructive criticism for future videos.

New posts on the WoW Embossing Powder Blog

Hi again,

Iv'e been busy blogging over at the WoW Embossing Powder Blog - click here to take a look.  The projects were on the theme "Snow and Ice". Each month there is a theme to work to and anyone can join in. Why not give it a go yourself and enter one of the Challenges.

As well as Demonstrating for DoCrafts (see my list of demo's on the right hand side of my blog), I also work for WoW Embossing Powders too as a Designer and Demonstrator.

I'm currently in the process of designing my new stamps and there is also something else a little special in the planning - but that's a secret for the time being. 

A new year and also a re-vamped website coming along with video tutorials on this blog and with a new range of Digi-stamps as well I can see it's going to be a very busy and exciting year ahead for all of us.

More info on all of the above coming soon........
