Let's get Crafting ..........

Morning everyone, I thought I'd share a quick post with you before heading off to the Holiday Inn this morning to set up for this weekends Graphic 45 Crafters Retreat starting tonight at 6pm.  Looking forward to seeing you later if you're joining me :-)  Projects are all finished and looking fab, kits are all made up, the car is heaving with crates and it looks like I'm moving out - boxes are piled high in the lounge ready for Oli to pack into the car for me shortly.  He's a good egg.   This retreat we're crafting with the Sun Kissed and Little Women paper collections by Graphic 45, with a Bureau and mini album, and larger album and case (new) in both.  I've really enjoyed the design process behind these projects - the collections are so different but equally as gorgeous to craft with.    The album and box kit (new product) is available in the Alter Me section of the website and the project sheets in both collections: will be available in the PDF Tut

Morning everyone, I hope you enjoyed your Easter Break.  Not the best of weather here but it was lovely to spend time with the family. Now its all go as we get ready for my Crafters Retreat later this month, and pack up and send out all the April Monthly kits.  I'm taking advantage of Harry being home for the last couple of days and have him on piece work, die cutting and punching all the elements for the May Kits.  He's a fabulous help - many hands make light work lol!!!     We had what seems like two tons of Graphic 45 gorgeousness arrive yesterday as our wholesaler  winds up the papercraft side of their business.  Sandra, if you're reading this many thanks for all your help and support over the past five years and good luck in your new role.  With oodles of packs of paper to choose from I set about updating some of my samples in designs from the Floral Shoppe collection.  How beautiful are those flowers and rich backgrounds.  With so many combinations to chose from
