Back Home and Sweeties!

Hello friends

NOTICE: Wednesday Giveaway will 
be posted tomorrow :) 

Hope you are all well.
I'm home after my shows on Hochanda, they were a lot of fun 
and Paul is brilliant to work with - so much talent!
But look how small I look.  
Sandwiched between Paul and Elliott I could pass as a hobbit! 

The shows flew by and there was so much you didn't get to see! 
I was itching to show you this project but there just wasn't the opportunity,
so here goes...

Designed by Becca Feeken it has the best of both worlds, 
a hot foil plate and a die set.
Using the Glimmer Hot Foil Press I've foiled the design onto 
ivory card and then used the die, it cuts the rectangle and the scallop 
insert in one go.

Fold and the scallop insert is at the top.  Decorate or write a name.
I filled a cello bag with sweeties (Smarties, I swear the colours are different now)
 and used double sided tape to affix the topper.
Ta-dah a finished sweetie bag.

Place Card/Mini Topper is available on the website here.
We have this design in stock now, other items are arriving possibly tomorrow 
but more likely Thursday now. 
I think the distributor has been overrun with orders.

If you have emailed I'm just catching up.
Teresa - as you live abroad you can watch Hochanda online or via their
Facebook page.

To help with some Glimmer questions I've received,
listing some below with answers: 

What die cutting machines are compatible with the Glimmer?
If your machine is able to use thicker dies e.g. Bigz, Contour Steel Rule Dies
then yes, the Glimmer will work perfectly.

Can I use other plates/hot foil stamps with the Glimmer?
Yes you can! 

Can I foil a die?
Yes you can...except worth noting not all of them work
and be careful the cutting edge doesn't cut the foil.
Go for it though, I'm trying out a few.

How long is the power cord?
6 feet

What measurement is the heated grey area?
Approx 14cm x 17cm (A5 piece of card works well).

Hope that helps, please feel free to ask any further questions.
And for further Glimmer details just click on the image below.
Take care friends, I had better get unpacked and get that washing machine on.

Hi Christine,
Haven’t watched all the shows yet, but will do a catch up. Love the photo of you sandwiched between Elliott and Paul 😂. I’m hoping to visit when you come to Bury St Edmunds soon. Paul’s calligraphy is amazing.

Hi Christine, I loved the shows, you seemed very relax and looked as though you were having a good time.
Great sweetie bag, I agree the Smarties look lighter in colour than they used to. Love Brenda xx

Pleased you are safely home & must say the shows were awesome. Don't worry about looking little between two handsome hulls, make the most of it lol. Cheers Jean xx

HULKS not hulls...this tablet is hopeless.

Hi Christine, So glad you all enjoyed the shows, I know I certainly did. Wow, Elliott is really tall now, you look dwarfed in between Elliott and Paul haha.
These sweetie bags are so pretty, and I also think the colours of smarties have changed from what I remember (although I haven't bought them in years haha).
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Morning Christine,
Enjoyed the shows that I was able to watch, Paul is a very talented man. Elliot towers over you now he looks so well.
Love the sweetie bag.

Love the idea of the place card Christine. Thanks Ann

Teresa Doyle said...

Thanks Christine for letting me know where to find Hochanda, I'll check it out when I have time.
Your treat bag topper is so elegant and the Smartie colour are lighter than they used to be. LOL (Who cares as long as there is still chocolate inside? HAHA)

You aren't short, just 'vertically challenged'! At least that is what my DIL calls it. LOL

Hi Christine

Really enjoyed the shows you did some fabulous demo's loved watching Paul as well isn't he

talented if only to be able to write like that.

Loving the sweetie bag I agree those smarties are not the same colour we used to use the red

ones and pretend we had lipstick on he he :-) The die set and foiling is lovely would make

beautiful place names for an occasion or a dinner party. I have a Birthday soon and I am

thinking of this Glimmer machine would make such a wonderful gift (They could all club

together for it)

Hugs Annxx

Hi Christine
I recorded the shows but haven’t been able to watch them yet.
Look how Elliot has grown, but you do look quite small sandwiched between the two.
