More chocolate anyone?

After my recent posting about chocolates, I can share some more cards with you that also include Hot Chocolate as a drink!

From the fun stamp set 'Hug in a Mug' it matched our chocolate themed cards perfectly. Hope you like them!

These cards were all made at one of our weekly coffee and card sessions - held twice per week in Brackley and Towcester. For more details, just ask!

Here are the details of the Hug in a Mug stamp set - perfect for tea, coffee and chocolate lovers alike!

All-Christmas card classes

I am looking forward to my classes this Saturday and Monday, which are specifically Christmas cards, at a new location in Shutford, just to the West of Banbury, Oxfordshire.

I have put 3 projects together, including one project featuring one of our mini-pizza boxes with 3 cute little cards and envelopes inside. The card design was based on one produced by Helen Griffin on her website ( - so thanks for the idea Helen.

The second project uses a non-Christmas stamp set - 

Away from the traditional red and green colours, my final card uses Lovely as a Tree - always a firm favourite for a traditional Christmas scene. I will share photos of that card tomorrow.

There is still time to book for Monday's class (Saturday fully booked) on 23rd October. Just EMAIL me to book or confirm your space.

FREE card design pack with purchase of Painted Harvest.

In addition to my regular weekly and monthly classes, I also run private classes with crafting (and non-crafting!) groups in the local area.  I was delighted to be invited to a friendly craft group in Banbury this week, and the requested stamp set to focus on was Painted Harvest.

We had a delightful evening, and these were the projects I prepared for them:

FREE Card pack to make the above cards*.

If you order the Painted Harvest stamp set from me in October, I will send you the card pack we used for the class, all cut, prepared and ready to go - so all you need to do is choose your colours, stamp the cards and sentiments and you are good to go.

If you order the Painted Harvest bundle (stamp set and leaf punch) from me in October, I will send you a card pack with all the supplies for 2 each of the cards above. (Please note different ribbon may be substituted).

 Online and in person orders both qualify for this offer. Don't forget you can use the October host code: R6HWWHRC for an extra gift from me.

Chocolate - my best friend

I have to say, that along with a decent Flat White or Skinny Latte, Chocolate is my next best friend; so when Stampin' Up! brought out a chocolate stamp set, I knew it would not be long before I succumbed and bought it!

We used it at coffee and card recently - and it was a big hit.

I love the sentiments too, which include -
"Chocolate makes everything better"
 "I love you more than chocolate"
"All you need is chocolate"

Come back soon for some more chocolate ideas!

Quick and Easy Christmas Cards

On request, we will be starting our Christmas card making in earnest this week at coffee and card. Usually what we do is alternate making Christmas cards one week, and other occasions the following week.

I decided on a nice and simple design - in fact almost taken straight from the catalogue on page 9 of the Autumn/Winter edition.

Here is my version - one in real Red, and the other in Island Indigo. Both stamps are in the Every Good Wish stamp set, which also features 2 nice sentiments for the inside of your card.

Every Good Wish £16.00 for the set of 6 stamps

I'll be back to show you some of the finished cards in due course. 
Thanks for stopping by.
