International Craft Day in Germany & Sneak Peeks


I’ve just got back from a great trip over to HSE in Germany. It was International Craft Day, and along with myself Stephanie Weightman was over with Nancy and also Barbara Gray.. so nice to see them! Our latest recruit made the trip over with me as well (more on that to follow…)


I was launching all of our Christmas dies, both the gorgeous Create a Card and the Classiques Christmas. The sales were unbelievable… customers loved the dies!


I did a few shows with the Spectrum Noir markers and pencils which went down a storm – you don’t really get to much chance to colour as there’s only twelve minutes for the segment, but it’s a great opportunity to teach people the basics. We include Leann’s DVDs in the kits so they can learn from the master at home, as I’ve done!


I was also there to launch a Xyron kit in the German market… both the 510 and the 3″ machine were very popular!

Now I’ve got a busy week ahead with lots of crafting – I’ve got wedding bits to make for my best friend’s wedding in 4 weeks and also prep for next week’s shows! Want another sneak peek at some projects from our design team?



I’ll be sure to share some of my makes soon as well! Don’t forget to pop over to my Facebook page and enter to win my crafty mega-bundle, full of goodies from our ‘The Snowman and The Snowdog’ and’ Father Christmas’ ranges! Or enter directly by clicking here:
