Super Cash Bonus for the Hostess

Great News!! The promotion for June and July is a scrummy extra cash bonus for the Hostess - this post will remain at the top of my blog until the end of July so please scroll down to see the latest posting.

Basically this promotion means that when you host a party for your friends and family during June or July and it achieves sales of £250.00 you will earn an additional £20.00 to add to your Hostess awards - take a look at the table on page 9 of the SU Idea Book and Catalogue and you will see that instead of earning £25.00 you will receive £45.00 to spend in the catalogue and likewise, for a party that achieves sales of  £300 you would normally receive £35.00 but for June and July that amount increases by a further £20.00 so a fabulous £55.00 to spend in the catalogue - are you with me? - just think of all those items you could be ticking off your Wish List.

Why not check your diary - do you have a free date in June and July to host a party?  Please contact me if you would like more details.

Matching Notebook and Pen

Hello again - I just thought I would post the photo of the little notepad and pen that I mentioned yesterday.  It really is an easy little project to do and looks so pretty - and I'm sure you could do one for a man just as easily, after all they need to write lists too.

Again the supplies are basic and inexpensive which makes them ideal for bazaars and fetes, and Monica's covered ruler over on her blog (see my sidebar under My many, many passions) would make an ideal addition to this little set - the perfect little trio.

Quite alot of workshops and classes coming up over the next two weeks for me but I will endeavour to keep posting what I've been making - see you soon - Bridgette

Medallion Card - A Different Colourway

Hello again - I have taken the photo of the Make and Take for Norma's hostess party that I mentioned yesterday.  It uses the Perfect Plum and Pale Plum which are super together with Whisper White cardstock, a cute little rhinestone and a little touch of satin ribbon down the side - so easy - what do you say Vanessa? sorry only teasing !!

I have managed the Designer Paper pen and it's turned out really lovely - thank you to Emma for the tip about a little bit of Tombow to help in the initial rolling of the paper - it worked a treat - decided to make a little matching notebook again so quick and simple - I'll post them tomorrow evening.

Medallion Background Stamp

Hello again - just to show you a project that I did for a belated wedding anniversary gift.  I used my new medallion stamps and favourite Certainly Celery and Alway Artichoke cardstock to create a card, plant pot decorative cover and cute tags for the plant and the chocolates - this card also looks lovely in the Perfect Plum and Pale Plum combo which I have used at a recent workshop and will doubtless bring out again as it is so quick and easy to make - I'll take a photo and show you tomorrow.

You can just see that base of the plant cover - it looked very nice honestly - I'll put the other photo on but the light isn't good but at least you can see a little more of the plant.

Thank you so much for dropping by - Bridgette

Cute Little Notebook

Hello again - I thought that I would show this cute little note book - you'll find these super little guys at Wilkos and only 11p each - what a steal !!!

I remove the front and replace with cardstock and then decorate however the mood takes me - I like to use the Stay Put Bow technique - so lovely as it looks as good from the back as it does from the front.

These make super little bazaar makes - with a matching pen and all wrapped in a little cellophane and tied with a pretty bow and decorated with a tag - you're bound to be onto a moneyspinner

I have recently got hold of some of Wilkos pens  and I am going to have a little play at putting matching designer paper down the barrel to match any future little notepads that I make to let you see what I mean - so please watch the space lol !!!

Hope your weekend has been lovely - back soon - Bridgette

Cute Sweetie Box and Card

Hello again - as you will see I borrowed the card from my Tuesday Craft Group and inspired by it I made another little box - I found it here at Jo Dumbleton's blog -  it is so cute - I scaled it up so that it would hold more sweeties lol!!!  It was for Grandi so it had to be full of Werther's Originals - doesn't every Grandi have pockets full of these?

I love this combination as it is masculine but interesting to do if you know what I mean - thank you for stopping by, a special thank you to those who drop by regularly in the hope that I have posted.
