Those of you who saw my Facebook post the other day knows that we've just got these gorgeous Stencils in.....and I just had to have a play....
So come on this quick little journey with me and create !!!
Here's what you'll need :-

Heidi Swapp Color Shine I used Teal...Of course !!!
White Card Stock
Black Card Stock
Glue Pen
Adhesive
Foam Pads

Here's What You Do :-

Cut card stock to size to suit your folded card. Making sure black card Stock is slightly larger than white card stock

Place Template over white card stock and spritz with Color Shine
Remove template.
Cut hearts from white cardstock, layer them up and glitter the smaller ones on top with glamour dust, then adhere together.
Mount on card with foam pads, then mount all the layers of card together.... AND...... Give yourself a pat on the back....You did it !!!!!

BOSTON Day 1

well.....technically we're not in Boston, but actually a place called Wesborough, which is near Natick which has a wonderful shopping mall AND Cheesecake Factory.
I don't want anyone being jealous and thinking 'oh she's soooo lucky' as I would just like to remind you it's near freezing, there's snow on the ground and rain in the clouds :) :)
The first class was taught to all the lovely reps yesterday, which meant we had to wait to have the room prepared...well, we couldn't wait around for them to do it so Richard took things into his own hands and tried to do his 'let's clear this table in one fell swoop'
It didn't work !!!!! LOL... This is the lovely Katie one of the Collins' girls making a quick exit....
So the class was taught and then we had to go to the airport and pick up the lovely Jen, who's joining us for the weekend. Richard was cold and needed a jumper so it was him who actually suggested the mall...YAY !!!! And what a beautiful mall, I got Rick a fabulous bargain in the way of Greg Norman, so he'll be happy and I picked myself up a few bits in Sephora...love that shop and then I found a Pandora so added two new additions to my Troll bracelet...sorry forgot a photo..
This is one of my favourite all time stores.....
If any of you have ever been there you'll know what I mean...
Then it was on to Brookstones...oh boy as a techno lover I just love this place, this time I got lured in to the massage chair and got a full body massage....seriously, it was amazing and all for just $9000.00 yep, nine thousand, if only I could get it on the plane !!! Everything was good in the land of massage until I got tapped on the shoulder by the lad to say they were now closed..whoops !!! 

Here's a quick pic from above of a rather LARGE sushi place in the middle of the mall.
If you like sushi !!!!!
We went on to eat at a place called Uno, never been to one before, it's italian and actually really nice !! 
I had mashed potato with broccoli and the best tasting herb and garlic rubbed chicken...oh boy it was yum.
So, until the next instalment you carry on enjoying all that lovely sunshine I'm hearing about

NEW CLASSES AND SOME...

2 NEW classes just released....love Mixed Media ? You'll love these....
http://sugarandspicecrafts.co.uk/pages/classes


2 quick reminders....
1. We are closed Easter Sunday and Bank Holiday Monday
2. We are still open and probably will be for another month or so...BUT, if you haven't filled up your loyalty card by the time we close, keep hold of it as I'm TRYING to find a way of putting in place a loyalty scheme on line and I will TRY and find a way of working the old one in with the new.... That's the fairest I can be and I hope you'll agree :) :) although if I can't come up with a solution, DON'T throw stones at me, after all it is a free service !!! If I can't find a way of working it, a new on line scheme will come into play and the shop loyalty cards will become NULL and VOID !! I am at the mercy of my web provider to implement this.
In the meantime we have a rather large order coming in soon, I can still add to it so if anyone has special requests all we require is a small deposit to secure your order. Just let me know, on top of that LOADS of FABULOUS bargains have been added to the SALE cart.
Have a fabulous Easter everyone and let's hope the sun comes out to play

So, February saw the release (well nearly released - pre-order really) of 9 NEW Marion Emberson Design Stamp Sets... Whoop Whoop !!!
I got sent 4 out of the 9 to 'play' with, and play we did....I say we, as I had some great girls in that day and they got their mojo flowing and come up with some great samples to be displayed on the Personal Impressions stand at the CHSI trade show !!
They're not only FAB for card making but PERFECT for Pocket Scrapbooking and Mixed Media Projects.
