Snow globes in Summer

Who can remember snow globes from their childhood - ME!



Well today was my team final training/Christmas party & it was a fun afternoon of crafting followed by bubbly & nibbles. It also meant we got to do swaps for the new Summer Mini catalogue that is going to be released in one days time December 1st. So lots more to blog about. If you do not have a demonstrator let me know & I'll drop one in the post for you.

My own launch party is this coming Friday night: contact me if interested in coming as I'll have the mini catalogue for you to pick up, new samples & a FREE make n' take plus Christmas Cake with a hot drink on the night.


One of the really neat NEW products are the Sweet Treat Cups & my pantry is full of wee lollies - many which have made it into my tummy - all in the name of research I might add!

So when I was blurfing for cool ideas I came across this really cool card of Kirsty Brown's & just adored it. You can see a really cool video on how to KReate a snow globe card  by clicking HERE too. So this was my swap for my team today. Isn't it just gorgeous!



Stamp sets: Winter Post, Holiday Line Up
Ink: Real Red, Chocolate Chip, Versamark, Basic Black, Baja Breeze, Tangerine Tango, Pacific Point
Paper: Real Red, Whisper White, Chocolate Chip
Punches: Scallop edge, designer label, 1/16" handheld punch, 1-¾" circle
Other: White embossing powder, sweet treat cup, blender pen, Dazzling Diamonds & Chunky Sprinkles, mini glue dots, linen thread, dimensionals, ¾" polka dot real red grosgrain (yummy)

Here's the globe all shook up:




The inside of the card (the snowflake is rock n' rolled):



So thanks Kirsty for the inspiration so much better than lollies!
