Playing with punches...

Morning all... 

Well, my promise to myself for keeping up with this bloggin' malarky isn't working very well now is it?!

However, I will try my best to fix my lack of posting and get some cards up on here to show you a few more of what I've been upto.. 

So, what have I been upto? Well, I've been out at some fab shops doing demo's instore, although things have been a bit quieter of late, they've always been quite well attended. I'm sure it's just because of the lovely weather that we've been blessed with this last couple of weeks, people are making the best of it and getting out and about rather than coming instore to sit and watch. 

Still, it's been nice to get out and about and show off some of the fantastic Docrafts products that are out this past two months... and wait until you see what's coming out in July - just when you think things can't get any better, Docrafts always come out and top the previous two months!!!!

Here's a little card that I've been taking to my demo's with me this past month or so. I like to redo my cards for my second month demo's, and playing with my stash as I do, this one came about because of the new palm punches. 

I love making vellum flowers, so to have a range of punches that layer and stack together in all sizes is just perfect to get punching and playing!

I punched out of vellum and embossed to give shape and whiteness and then just pieced them together on the card to give a bouquet feel to it. The birdcage is just an additional extra really, but gives something to blend the shapes of the flowers around.

I hope you like today's card. Sorry it's just a very quick post this morning, but I have a class to get ready for this morning. I'm off upto Ackworth Garden Centre to teach our weekly Thursday class.

Whatever you're upto today, have fun!!!

Good morning... good morning....

How's you??

What a busy few days! I've just made the annual conference trip to Bournemouth with Docrafts, and what a great time it was too. Meeting up with other demonstrators and designers, as well as the team from DO-HQ is always fab. We stayed down at the Hermitage in Bournemouth, and as always was lovely food, lovely accomodation etc. The weather was great too. Perfect for spending a bit of time down at the beach with a very special lady called Margaret who nipped over to meet up.

There are some really great things coming out too towards the end of the year, which is always a treat to see. I know you're going to be loving all the new tools and papercraft items that are coming out. As well as other things that you are GOING TO LOVE!!! Watch this space......

Last weekend I had a fab demo day down in Derby at Craft Central. Love that shop. Jo, Karen and Kat were staffing the day, and it sadly was the last time that I'm going to see kat for a while.. She's off to Uni to study veterinary medicine, so GOOD LUCK Kat, I will miss you and your talents.

So, that's all my news caught up - I'll be back later with a few projects to share with you.. until then take care..

Happy Crafting,
Jo xx
