Day 3 - Creative Crafts Show, Sandown

Hello, Crafters.
I have just uploaded my video, called Bauble Lanterns, on to YouTube. This is the link: Bauble Lanterns.

In this video I made quite a big boo-boo but decided to leave it in because I knew instantly what I would do to correct it.

If you chatted with me at the Show over the last three days, it's quite possible I showed you boo-boo and you know, as yet, I haven't fixed it! LOL! But I will get it done before today's over.

The card stock I used was the Irresistibly Yours Designer Series Paper which was only available during this year's Sale-a-bration.

We have similar card stock available in the current Annual catalogue on page 142 called Colour Me Irresistible Specialty Designer Series Paper. The designs are different but they are treated the same. 

If you're not sure about sponging this kind of card stock, please watch my video Flowery Irresistibly Yours

The four lanterns in these photographs are:- first, lantern has been cut out of Red Glimmer paper; second, I sponged the lantern base using Real Red Ink, immediately after I had die cut the lanterns; third, I sponge the die cut lantern with Garden Green Ink; fourth, I made the whole lantern using Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper.
Day 3 at the Creative Crafts Fair yesterday went really well. It was far busier and visitors seemed to have more time to stay and chat with us.

I'd like to say a very big thank you to everyone who visited our stand during the 3 days - it was great having the opportunity to meet you and to have a chat.

I went back to see the man who had asked me to stamp on a piece of special card
stock he'd given me on Friday.

He was doing his sales pitch to some interested visitors, so I stood and listened, too. He was taking about the beautiful card stock he'd asked me to stamp on
and was showing some different samples of cards that had been made with it....................but he wasn't able to show what it looked like when it had been  stamped on! Enter JanB! 

Because I had suspected he wanted me to do the stamping for his business purposes, I put my contact details on the sheet before I handed it over! Of course I want everyone to know that the best ink to use on it is Stampin' Up! Black Archival Ink and where they can get it from!

I'm spending my day today getting myself straightened out after the 3 days at the show and back into my normal routine.  

Until tomorrow, happy crafting.  



  1. Just watched the video of this Jan but couldn't comment on my ipad!
    A great video ...thanks a lot,

  2. Hi, Ruth. Many thanks for persevering in making your comment! I'm really pleased you enjoyed the video and that maybe you'll have a go at making the lantern. Happy crafting, JanB.
