Brace yourself...

for my new product release...

Yes I did say new product...in September.

We do like to catch you unawares!!!



 First of all we have the new designer accessory bags. Every designer has contributed their own artwork to the same design bag. This gives you the chance to have the same great product in your favourite designers styles. One or all of them!!!

Could you guess this one would be mine, lol


Then we have something I have been excited about for the longest of times.
A new size of journal...

A square journal filled with just my fabulous mixed media paper. 8 x 8 pages just ready to be filled with fabulous artwork. Unfortunately my sample is on my desk at Ranger so I can't show you any sneak peeks at the moment.

BUT..........


Yes you are seeing it right....

welcome at last to my black journal...

whoop de frikkin whoop and all that jazz...

I have been after a black journal for a long, long time and the journal fairy listened and here it is.

As well as being fabulous for all my white doodling, it takes my paints fabulously, still giving that rich intensity which is offset by the black showing through.

Here are some background pages













 And here are a few sample pages finished...







I'm sure you can see how versatile it is.

I have just heard that all three items, the bag and the two journals, are on the shelves and ready to go.

So what are you waiting for..????

Enjoy xx

Jay to the rescue...

Our Jay ak The Resident Bit of Glamour works for me at Reaveley Towers. She helps me with design etc and is really getting into the swing of making samples. Because my iPhoto is playing up she sent me over some pics of things she has done

Here are some of the border stencils doodled.



 Two quick step outs of a tag...









Tons of blocked and stencilled backgrounds












And some finished samples






Nice one Jay, you did a fantabulous job.

Jay is getting married in 3 weeks to the gorgeous Tom-tom and I will be flying home to help with all the last minute preparations etc. Unfortunately I am missing out on the hen night which is tonight :-(
but I am sure a wonderful time will be had by all.

Whatever you are doing this weekend, make it a good one.

Enjoy xx

eeeeek....

Im not really sure whats going on with my iPhoto since this latest update!!! It appears to have eaten all my finished sample photos!!!

So I will nip back to the office tomorrow and take them again for you all.

I'm loving saying that "nip back to the office". Why you might ask?
Because normally on a Friday night I am in a new place ready for a busy teaching weekend. But not this time, I have given myself the weekend off teaching, which means I haven't had to repack my bags and travel anywhere. I'm still working but I'm Ranger based, whoop de frikkin whoop.

I have managed to find a few samples of the new border stencils, arrow and hearts , which by the way I am freakin loving!!! I don't know how I managed without them. The purpose of them is to lay down some colour and then doodle over. Here are some before pics.






 But you will have to wait for tomorrow to see the afters!!!

Talking of stencils, as you all know I am the Queen of organisation and need a place for everything but within easy reach. I was sorting out all my shape stencils. I normally keep them in little plastic wallets but can never find the ones I am looking for.

At he last show I was admiring Tim's Clip Carousel and a light bulb went off. So without further ado I introduce my new stencil storage!!!



Seriously, how frikkin fab is that !!!

I have been doing lots of reorganising in my office, so I will do you a little video next week showing you.


I might treat myself in the morning and lie in till 8.30 and then take a leisurely stroll in! Proper spoil myself. lol.

In other news, the lovely Seth Apter, who is teaching at my store in November (get in !!), has released a new line of stamps, which are so cool. Have a look HERE. Congratulations my lovely.


And to end, I love this pic of my two babes waiting for me to come home. Awww only 9 more sleeps.


Enjoy xx
