Happy New Year

I would like to wish all my blog readers a very


and all the very best for 2012.

2011 was a very exciting year for me as I became a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator on 11/1/11 & what a year it's been. I now have a lovely customer base and a large group who come to my monthly classes. I also have a team of 4 demonstrators who are not only my downline but also lovely friends. It has been an absolute pleasure watching my class ladies develop their crafting skills especially those who had never picked up a stamp or ink pad before!!

I am looking forward to my business growing in 2012 and adding more classes & events so watch this space.

Thankyou again for taking the time to visit my little crafting space & I look forward to your visits in 2012.

Easel Calendars

Here is one of the projects we did at my last card class of 2011. Everyone really enjoyed making these calendars & some went on to make them as gifts for friends, colleagues & teachers! This one is from a batch I made to take in to work so I have used some retired products on these but the class ones used the gorgeous Timeless Portrait Designer papers.
I made a batch of these to take in to work & they also went down very well.

I'll be back tomorrow with another version of these calendars.

Stampin' Up! Products used

Stamps - Forever Young, Parlour Prints & Just Believe
Cardstock - Island Indigo
Ribbon - Retired
Ink - Basic Black

Table Decorations

My lovely SU Mum Jules gave us all one of these cute little decorations at our last Julies Jems team training. We all make projects to swap with the rest of the team & it's great for future inspiration.

I made a batch of 15 of these & took them in to work last week. Talk about gone in 60 seconds!! the first 3 people bought all but one which I had to keep as a sample & took orders for more which have been delivered today.
Now all I need to do is make the ones for our Christmas dinner table.

Thanks Jules for all your inspiration in 2011 & here's to a prosperous Stampin' Up! 2012!!

Altered Heart

Firstly I need to apologise for my lack of blogging since the beginning of November. Things have been very busy in the Glynn Household & with one thing & another my blog had to take a back seat. I certainly haven't been idle & have been busy fulfilling lots of commission orders & Christmas orders & will be glad when Friday arrives & they've all been passed to their new owners!!

Right, on to today's project.

One of my closest cousins is my eldest daughters Godmother & I always struggle with what to buy her for Christmas so when I saw this gorgeous heart my 'SU sister' Nicky had made for our 'SU Mum' Jules I just had to have a go for my cousin. Sue really appreciates all things handmade & has kept all the cards I've sent her over the years so I know she will love this.

I spent an evening last week making these beautiful flowers using the Fancy Flower punch, Rose Red cardstock & First Edition Speciality papers finished off with the gorgeous Antique Brads, very therapeutic.

I've also added a little butterfly made with the Beautiful Wings Embosslits Folder & added some basic Pearls.
SUE has been die cut using the Timeless Type Junior Alphabet. I've cut eight of each letter & layered them to give a chipboard effect & then covered them with Crystal Effects.

A touch of Chantilly Lace in a double bow again finished with an Antique Brad and some Champagne Glass Stampin Glitter, very sparkly!!

The whole thing has been covered with Glimmer Mist made using the Frost White Shimmer Paint which hasn't shown up in the pictures but is beautiful in real life.

If you're still with me lol!! here is the heart before my makeover!
