Quite a while since my last post I know.  We had a week away in Northumberland, which was lovely, visiting beaches, pubs and art galleries.  What more can we ask for?!

Now all is crazy here getting ready for our upcoming shows on Hochanda.  We have 2 shows on Tuesday, 4th August, the first at 7am (eeek early I know!), and the second at 1pm.  It would be fantastic if you could join us, PJs perfectly acceptable attire of course.

I have a few sneaky peeks for you this evening, and I've picked out some bits and bobs from some of Helen's very colourful makes with the new rubber stamps that will feature.  Guess what the theme for the shows is?!..

Wow I do so love those bright colours.  Helen achieved these by using alcohol inks on glossy cardstock.  Must get those alcohol inks out again!  See the whole of Helen's project, and many more luscious team makes, on Hochanda TV on Tuesday.

On another note I have been demoing live on Facebook, the CI public page, on many Wednesdays since lockdown, and on Fridays we have some crafty chat and giveaways.  Both at 2.30pm.  Do join me this Friday here:

Here are the two makes from today's 'stamping onto acetate' demo.....

Fun to do but slipping whilst stamping onto acetate is one of the drawbacks, but thinking that this is where a stamping platform might help.  The background in both cases is one of Malcolm's photographic sheet backgrounds which you will find on our website HERE.  So much fun to use and embellish further.

Thanks for checking in.
Back soon,

p.s. Here are Hochanda details if you need them..

A very brief post before myself, Malcolm and Monty dog have a week's break.  If you follow on Facebook you will have seen my live demos on a Wednesday afternoon at 2.30 and my show and tells on a Friday at the same time.  The following couple of projects were from my last Wednesday Demo Day, complete with sequins and foil.....

Because of our little break there won't be any Live's from now until the 15th July.
Happy crafting everyone and thanks for your comments always,
Back soon,
Jean xx
