It seems, in the words of Bilbo Baggins…”I’M GOING ON AN ADVENTURE!!!” – and it certainly was an unexpected journey to be taking. It all started in December 2016 when I entered a papercraft magazine’s competition….
It was all very last minute as I only had a few days to get my entries in before the deadline. I looked at all the work I had done that year and sent in the projects that I considered to be my best. There’s a saying that if you don’t try, nothing happens. So, to my surprise, I was one of the winners! Not only had I won a huge craft stash, but also a place on their design team. I was so excited as I’ve always wanted to do something like this. Here are two of my winning projects…

Unfortunately, this does conflict with Stampin’Up!’s contract and I have had to make a hard choice between two things I’d love to do. I have decided to give up being a demonstrator for Stampin’Up! and go on this new adventure. There are just so many other craft companies that I love and would like to use and feature on my website and YouTube channel. I have a rule in life where if things get restrictive and possibly hinder my growth, then it’s time to move on.
So what’s next?
My passion is to teach you all how to make it – even the seemingly more difficult ones. I will continue to love Stampin’Up! products and they will still feature in my projects. I will also continue to film tutorials and keep you all up to date with the latest products & techniques from the crafting industry.
Now that I am moving on, I will be able to bring you beautiful mini album tutorials with the most amazing scrapbook collections out there. I will still be doing all my usual series like Christmas in July and 12 Days of Christmas. I will also be adding some new series to my channel this year along with some scrapbooking tutorials. There’s a few giveaways coming up too, as I’m approaching 4000 subscribers on my channel!
You will also see me appearing in papercraft magazines and I will be sharing all that info every time I will be featured – along with some YouTube tutorials to go with them. You can buy the magazines internationally HERE.
This Month’s Hostess Code
This month’s code will be closing at 9pm Monday 27th February 2017. If you wish to place any orders with me, then please do so before 9pm on that day. You will receive your order as normal and you be receiving your hostess gift in March. This will be the last hostess code, as from March I will no longer be a demonstrator. This month’s code is XVJA2CJT – please use it to get your free gift and also take advantage of the freebie’s from Sale-A -Bration with an order over £45!
I would love to say a huge thank you to everyone that has come along on my journey so far, to those that have liked and commented on my work and of course to those that have shopped with me. It takes a huge leap of faith to shop with a complete stranger – especially if you found me on YouTube and had to have that particular product! I took a huge leap of faith joining Stampin’Up! without even buying anything first! And I’ve not regretted a moment. I’m hoping you’ll all come with me on my new journey and cheer me on – I’d love to have you here with me 🙂
Ps. I might be as small as a Hobbit, but I certainly don’t have large hairy feet!!!!
Hostess Code – I reward my customers when they shop with me
All orders over £25 (before shipping & handling) & using this month’s Hostess Code at checkout will receive a Hostess Gift from me. If your order is over £150, please do not use this code – you can claim your own Stampin’ Rewards.
All online orders under £150 will collect Stampin’ Rewards (free product) throughout the month. Your order is processed as normal, with it being delivered to your house as usual, so nothing changes there. But, at the end of the month, I close off the code and work out how many people have placed orders and divide the total Stampin’ Rewards between them all, making sure that everyone has exactly the same products.
However, the more people who join the code, the higher the rewards go because everyone is pulling together towards a common goal!
This month’s code can be found at the top right of this page or on the home page
