Prima Princess Stamps

Hi there, this is my first post in a long while so i’ve a lot to fill you in on over the next few weeks :-). I am starting with a short one (ease myself in gently lol!)! So, this is some of what we created in my studio at our Tuesday class yesterday morning.

Once i did the demo and let the ladies loose with some watercolour paints, pencils and stamped images it was so quiet it was like when i switch on the telly/ you tube for the kids! We got a great laugh when i said as much. 🙂

We used some new Prima stamps from the Princess range, which are fantastically priced @ €9.99 each and so easy to use. We matted the coloured image on to co-ordinating cardstock and on one card used strips of washi tape to add some interest to an A5 plain white card.

Prima has a great selection of water colour pan sets ( see photo ), which is what I used. They are brilliant as they have a lovely selection of colours in each one, are easy to use and a great size set for bringing with you :-).

I have them in the shop, so if you are interested in playing with them send me an email, pm me on facebook or text me on +353879481196.

Thanks for dropping by,

Spotlighted Crafter!

Hi all, I am only just home from a wonderful two days in Limerick.  I spent all day yesterday in the fabulous company of the gorgeous ladies of the Busy Bees Cardmaking Club in Limerick who were hosting a crafting workshop with the equally gorgeous ladies…. The 3 Mad Hatters!  It was a great day with lots of creative projects happening all day as well as some shopping of course, lol!

I stayed over last night in Limerick and spent the day today with my 93 year old Grandmother who has lived there all her life.  She is a fabulous lady who is definately the Matriarch of the family,  I wasn’t in the door 5 minutes when she handed me her comb and told me to brush my hair lol!!   I love spending time with her as she always has wonderful stories from her past, that are full of colourful characters. Love you Grams!

Getting back to the title of this post…..i can’t believe I didn’t post this before now, but guess what…..I am the spotlighted crafter on the latest issue of Crafting Ireland.  I was soooooooooo excited when the girls asked me  to be there “Spotlight on..” crafter for the magazine.  So if you want to find out how i went from being a scientist messing in laboratories to becoming a crafter messing with inks, as well as seeing some of what I create; check out issue 9 here.

Be sure to check out the other issues too as there are great tips and techniques in them and it’s IRISH, which I think is fantastic!!

Happy Crafting
