Pretty Hearts as Flower Centres and more....

Hello friends
What a fantastic lovely response to my post yesterday - thank you.
I will consult Bella's schedule and sort out a day when she is able to pick out a winner!
I think she's pretty much free - just a few walks, chasing squirrels, rabbits etc....
Keep your eyes peeled each day as I've got quite a few giveaways coming up -
I always feel a nice warm glow when I can give stuff away!

Today's post is a card that I created for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L -
this went live when I was away in Birmingham and I didn't have a chance to blog 
about it until now.  
All the details can be found here.
What I am so thrilled about is the 3D Foam Hearts and the fact
that you can heat emboss them.  Within the pack they come in various sizes so the 
little ones make ideal flower centres.  I have these for sale in my Amazon shop.
As promised - answering a few questions:-

Shop sign: hoping to work on this again over the weekend and the beginning of next week,
it needs more coats of paint and then the actual lettering.  

Grand Calibur: sometimes they develop a rattling sound - occasionally it is possible that the 
screws inside work their way loose - this is an easy fix -
if you need some advice please email me as I'm happy to provide instructions.

More classes: if you could see my desk you would see all my class drafting notes...they are happening and because Spring is supposed to be around the corner (go away snow!) they all seem to feature a lot of 
very pretty papers, flowers and butterflies!  You are not really surprised are you??!
The new classes are going out by email within the next few days, I have a mailing list but just in case
you do not think you are on the list please let me know - I don't want anyone missing out.

Until then...some places available on March classes including Jennie's canvas class -
(I've heard some inside info that she's using Rose Creations and Carnation Creations).

I'm doing a Mother's Day Card and Gift box class - chocolate involved with that one!

Also Grand Dies and Nestaboard notebook class - this is being re-run due to demand.
All class details can be found by just clicking on my Spellbinders Academy tab on the sidebar.
But, always email me if you need to know anything - I'm getting faster on that little keypad on my phone too!

Have a brilliant weekend - I'm hoping to change my shop window -
out goes the Valentine theme and in comes Spring - photos to follow!
Take care friends.

Love your photo of Bella. Such a pretty card today, it looks as though the heart pads are proving to be very versatile.

Lovely card Christine. Your classes sound fabulous and I'm sure everyone will enjoy their time spent with you - the samples look very enticing. Good luck with the sign and enjoy decorating the window - look forward to the pics. We have heavy snow in the N.E. so it's a crafty weekend for me.
Take care.

Good morning Christine, another lovely card. I bought these dies recently because you had used them so much on your stunning projects. I would like to have a go using the die cuts in foil but haven't found any yet so I'll have to have a play using something else.
Looking forward to seeing the new sign and window display.

Hi Christine

Hello Bella, you keep guard of Mummy's calibur and then she has a special job for you to do, picking out the winner of yesterdays dies.
Have a good weekend

Hi Christine, I was telling my friend the other day, that my Grand Calibur appears to have something rattling around inside, it is working fine, but I was just concerned to what it might be, so my friend noticed on your site, that you mentioned this problem, so she very kindly sent me the link to your site, so here I am asking you your advise regarding the problem!! I would be grateful if you could send me details, how to rectify the email is very much Ann

I have been following your new adverture with great interest but have not left a message(really naughty of me) it's just sometimes I don't get my computer switched on till after 11pm. But I must congratulate you in achieving all you have done (and your family). I really don't know how you fit so much into your week! I think today's card is one of my favourites. keep on blogging it gives a lot of people a lot of pleasure.

nmty said...

Hi Christine. Bella does look lovely next to the Grand Calibur but I can't imagine how she is comfortable - I wouldn't like to cuddle up to one! Hope you ad a good day and managed to replace your window display. Can't wait to see the photos. Hope you get another step closer to finishing your sign. Ju
