PUBLISHED and lovely bracelets kits

Hello there how are you? Are you a subscriber of Crafts Beautiful magazine? if you are you probably got your lovely copy by now or indeed got to buy it in your local store and you spotted a few goodies designed by myself in it. I  was gobsmacked and delighted when Sarah asked me many months ago if I was willing to prepare an article for their April addition. Of course I jumped at the chance and I still feel honoured she asked me.
At the time (December) it was fun to take time out from the winter colours and Christmas inspired projects and play with some bright and breezy colours and I have to say I love the finished ensamble . Here it is
 The colours I have used are Pumpkin Pie, Bashful Blue, Old Olive, Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo and Early Espresso.
I have used my beloved Broadsheet alphabet stamps ( I simply love this and I am looking for a good excuse to give one away here on my blog) and the very useful Party This Way. This is such a fabulous set for children, men and women old and young alike, I love it. I have also used a selection of punches and some die cut shapes and glittery chipboard letters. What do you think? I am still awaiting my copy but I might sneak out today and try and find it in the shops, oh and if by any chance you want me to sign your copy a flat fee of £4.95 will apply ROFL. ( I kid, I kid honestly lol)
Last week I showed you the beautiful bracelets I have made for my team members that attended Stampin' Up! Regional Trainings events and I have also mentioned that I will have a few kits for sale here on my blog.
Well here they are you will get everything you need to make one of those little beauties.
 The cost of the bracelets including postage is £5.99. I have 10 kits of brights bracelets pictured above that I could send out straight away but if you want a different colour collection the wait will be about 10 days in total. Please state your choice of colour when ordering, to buy now simply click on the Buy it Now button below, thank you.

I also want to give you the heads up on my New Virtual Club starting at the end of  March if we get enough interest, I will say this is so the right time to join a club I have seen the new mini catalogue that is being launched on the 1st of April and I can tell you that you will not know what to buy first, I know we get so easily excited over new stuff the slight sight of some pretty paper sends us all into a frenzy but believe me when I say this YOU WILL LOVE IT and find it impossible not to part with your lovely cash, IMPOSSIBLE !!
As a member of my club you get exclusive project ideas and videos as well as occasional gifts. If you wish to spread the cost a bit and have a little ray of sunshine come stariught to your door every month email me to reserve your place now
This month all my club members got an exclusive step by step video tutorial on how to make these gorgeous flowers on this card.
Right I am off to do a bit more work preparing for the Great Northern Papercraft Extravaganza at Harrogate this weekend, are you going? if you are make sure you come by, say hello watch a few demos and get plenty of inspiration we have loads on display for everyone.
