A huge thank you to all you guys from me with big old hugs attached.
So many of you emailed in with your support and I really appreciate that lovlies. I had a real blast with the lovely Stephanie and she is a beautiful warm and helpful lady. Then I got to meet gorgeous Leonie and had a blast with her with our challenge show too, she is a great gal too and I loved the demoing so all in all what a great day, I realise the demos need to speed up I dont want you all dropping off on me haha.
Today sees the last chance to leave comments for my competition too as I will be using Mr Random.org at around 6 tonight to choose a winner to send those gorgeous goodies to.
I thought I'd start to show some of the samples from the show so you see them a little closer.
You can see the crackle background again here
Lots of layers I really enjoyed doing this one as I think the cheery colours make you feel a little like the sun is on its way eventually even if if feels like everywhere covered in muddy water at the moment.
A close up of the embossing details , I used the enchanted gold wax in the background over the Script mask and then used the butterflies and flowers mask over the top of that. Of course that gorgeous Ribbon on the show is used a lot in all these samples and this one is proudly displaying the Rose coloured ribbon.
I thought I would spend a few minutes answering any questions you wrote in and asked but we didn't get given to answer on the show via emails.
Sylvia Minter from Norwich asked if The masks come in a larger size for instance 8x8, well Sylvia they do a range of A4 sized masks below is a link to the ones I found on the Creative Expressions website if you ever need to look
A4 masks. Leonie in Wetherby said she was distracted by my bracelet cos she wanted one haha during the demos, well Leonie my gorgeous daughter bought me it as part of my Christmas prezzie and it certainly is a sparkly one. I don't know where she got it I'm afraid but will ask Hilary in Harrogate had some poorly grandkids with her and thought I could say hello and wish them better, which I would have of course if they had been given to me so Emilia and Callum who are just 3 & 6 I wish you get better quickly and hope you had a lovely day with nanna, who I hope does not get your illness too. Denise In Leichester asked what card I was using on the show and will the Couture Creations fit into The Big Shot machine. The card stock I use is always Creative Expressions Foundation card which I use all the time for everything as it is uncoated so inking is perfect on it but it is also lovely to mat and layer with as the weight is between 210 and 240 dpi depending on the colour. The coconut white and the plum and the soft gold are my all time firm favourites. But I just love them all, the teal is a great one too. The embossing folder is yes absolutely it will fit in the big shot. I had so many emails from you all which you don't see on air but I have a huge bundle and they all say welcome and they are enjoying the shows, also that I am different and that I inspire them all with my relaxed demos to want to try to use their inks so much more and realise you do not need to be scared to try and give it all ago, "nothing ventured,nothing gained " as the saying goes.
You all also say that you feel Creative Expressions and me with my style will be a perfect union and you all can't wait to see more of my demos and that you loved that I did the challenge during Leonies show and what an absolute different idea. Well I had lots of demos prepped and different cards to make and I really enjoyed doing some of them in the mornings shows and had several more to do in the afternoon but Ireally just wanted to 'wing it' pardon the pun. So I asked Leonie and the producer what they thought and they agreed yay... And what you all saw was totally real I had absolutely no idea at all what was coming and I loved that , I think I was a little slow but it will all get better with time, what do you all think? Carol won that card , I'd of liked to have added some pearls and glitter etc which would've made it just that bit more special but I will be doing lots of card give aways on the blog from today on so everyone will have more chances of seeing some originals which have taken a little longer to make up. Regarding some videos that I want to start doing for you all , I have a tripod finally on its way to me so that should start the process as I need my hands of course to make for you.
Thank you again to all the ladies that come on and check the blog every single day for new inspiration and who emailed into the show and are sticking firmly with me on this journey I will be back later with the winners of my competition so Have a great day.
For those of you wondering , I have had a mega problem with blogger playing up today and not lining things up correctly etc so if it a little squiffy I am so sorry. Lots of love Kim XXXX
