Create & Craft TV Samples

I feel so blessed to of been asked to work with Card Creations plus to design some samples for their new Crafting cd & USB Cute Woodland Critters.

It was released today & looking to be a sell out!

Its a fabulous interactive programme so you can really have a play with the software images or print out ready made ones if you wanted to.

If your lucky you may still be able to buy one!

You can watch the catch up show here with all the teams samples & Kathryn showing you her demos.

The Calendar was lots of fun to work with as all the dates are their & you can add pictures from the USB or even add your own image. You could really go to town & personalise it to add everybody’s birthdays & special dates so you never forget. I was tickled pink Nigel May picked it up & Kathryn said on air that I was the designer🙂

I also made a stepper card, Picture box frame, Door sign, Large A4 card with small yearly calendar, 8×8 Pyramage card & small 6×6 square card.

Weekend off

 

I must start with a photograph, when I blogged a couple of weeks ago saying the snow was coming & I had to prepare well here is what it was like when I woke up in the morning. It only stayed for a few days but it was beautiful seeing the snow covered Lawns & shrubs. I had many animals visiting including our 1st fox.

I am so excited to be getting a weekend Off!

I have had the busiest 3 weeks ever with 3 craft fairs & having to nip off from a craft fair to buy a book for orders as I forgot to bring one. I am now finally all up to date with the final packages all wrapped for posting tomorrow🙂

Lanark craft Fair was fabulous, the people so friendly & they loved my handmade items. I gave out over 100 business cards & lots of people said visit the castle regular so say they will pop in & see my new makes when the castle opens in 2017. Its nice to see people from afar visiting the castle & shows you what a fabulous prestige place it is to visit.

Southport Fair was another sell out of many things & I am already booked in to do the Flower show in the summer 2017 so that is something to work towards & look forward to.

Liverpool town was amazingly busy & I have just finished the last of the orders for that one which will be posted out tomorrow. It was nice to do a fair near my home town so I could pop in & visit family & friends with a surprise visit. Yes I do like going back to my home town but I love living in Scotland so visiting did not change my mind to move back home.

I have a weekend off & going to enjoy my own Christmas shopping spree, with 3 children & 5 Grandchildren to shop for I am looking forward to playing OOPS! I mean choosing their Christmas gifts😉 I am going to Carlisle on Saturday & Glasgow on Sunday as they have a fabulous indoor shopping area so whatever the weather I am hoping I will be able to finish all my shopping & relax to enjoy the festivities. Usually I have my Tree up by now but not had enough time to do it so may have a xmas clean up tomorrow & start putting the tree up. It takes 6 hours as each branch is added one by one but I do love my tree & look forward to dusting all those baubles off.

Final week prep for craft fair

Its been a busy couple of weeks but I am now able to slow down as I have all my boxes filled & need to go buy out for more new boxes to fit everything else in. I have not done any decorating with being so busy with the fair, Ebay & orders so hopefully next week I will be back relaxing & painting again. I am unable to post everything I make as I would be sat here all day at  the computer rather than making but I like to share a few things & what I do not share on social media you will be able to see at the Christmas craft fairs i have booked over the next 4 weeks & then in my workshop.

Today I have started on Wolf Books, I love all creatures but wolves are my favourite. I will hopefully make some more of these as I put one on my personal facebook page & just as I adding it to my business page I recieved a PM & it was sold. So these will be hidden in a craft box so nobody gets to see them until the fair.

Bah Humbug Decorations, I have had lots of fun making these until I came to the 15th one & started to grow bored so I only made 16 but they are finished & ready to take to the fair on Saturday.

Elf Cam decorations are turning out to be very popular & I have made 25 to take with me this weekend. No batteries needed they run on Elf power😉

Gorjuss I finally did some free motion embroidery which I really enjoyed & used up a piece of Gorjuss fabric. The cushion is 16 x 16″ & has a zipper back, I still have another to make up & really do not mind if it does not sell as I have 3 more spare bedroom to decorate just after Christmas & this will go nicely in one of them.

Santa workshop doors. I have 11 to make for orders but these few will be coming with the others I made to the craft fair with me. When I started making them with different coloured door & bricks I was in undated with requests so I may make a few more this week it all depends as its time to get back to designing for my new teams xxx

Create & Craft Christmas card Bargain 2016

This is to good not to share!

christmas-crafting-2-sarahjayne christmas-crafting-sarahjayne

My box of goodies arrived from Create & Craft & WOW I was amazed at how much was included!

http://m.createandcraft.tv/product/385409

Toppers, Backing sheets, Cards, Envelopes & even Tape & sticky pads!

I haven’t used sticky pads for years & forgot how handy they are!

This is only a few cards I made today with a fraction of what is inside the box!

I lit the bedroom fire went down to collect some more coal & passed the bottom craft room so I  brought up a box of goodies to play with whilst I watched the Disney show with Mel & Stephanie. Ok I know I shouldn’t of watched it as goodies always fly into my basket but I couldn’t help it as I’m a sucker for Disney & even though I haven’t used any of the last Disney batch I received a few months ago I know its in my craft room & waiting for when I do decide to play with it😉

Off now to start up the Embroidery machines as my package has just arrived with Stabiliser & threads & craft fair is getting soooooo close!🙂 xxx

Christmas Craft Fair approaching

With a Christmas craft fair approaching I have been busy in the sewing room, CE testing can take forever sometimes with waiting for certificates of the fabric & cottons but thankfully they arrived sooner than later & after I did all the tests on these Gingerbread babies I could finally make one & attach its new CE label🙂 I added a picture of one on my Facebook wall & I sold the large & small one with orders for 7 more small ones & 2 large ones, so I have been busy making & posting them & ordered more fabric again so I can now make them & add them to my craft fair box so I have some to take with me🙂

Gorjuss! I do love Gorjuss & a couple of years ago I ordered a huge batch of the fabric & decided its time to start using it again. These are spiral bound note books & I made the covers on my Embroidery machine & each one only took 7 minutes from start to finish🙂 Gorjuss has a real strict licence so I am unable to sell them online & through the gift shop but I am able to take them to the craft fairs. I bought the books last year so again nice to see some of my forgotten stash being used up. The covers are fully lined so when the book is full it can be removed & added to another.

Santa Pillow, I designed the head on an embroidery programme & embroidered it onto the white fabric & then started to make the head up using more white for the hats band & the red for the Hat & base. Its a gorgeous velvet like fabric so its real soft to touch. It has a zip on the back so can be taken out & washed ready for next year.

Now I am off to carry on collecting some card making items to take up to the top sewing room & fill the coal buckets up & bring some more wood in. We have snow arriving tomorrow & I like to be kept cosy & warm.

Have a fun week all xxx
