We're getting close to the changeover of our seasonal catalogues - can you believe it? Now I always have mixed feelings about this, 'cause it means that new crafting loveliness is on its way, which makes me really happy. On the other hand, though, it means that we have to say goodbye to some other lovely things, which makes me a little sad...

There's no reason for you to miss out, though! You can still get hold of things from this year's Autumn Winter catalogue until 31st January, so there's time yet for you to stock up on the things you can't do without. 
If you're not sure how to order, then let me tell you. You can call me (on 01473 622004), you can email me or you can place your order online through my brilliant Online Shop. It's really easy, and you can have your order delivered direct to your door or collect it from me - it's your choice!

Hello! I've got another gorgeous Monster Hugs project for you today, and as something a little bit different, I've recorded a video tutorial showing you exactly how to make it, which you can find underneath the photos in this post. The project is a really fabulous birthday card, and I've designed two versions - one using the Girl Monster, and one using the Boy Monster. I think they're really cute, and I hope you love them just as much! Here she is, my cupcake-carrying Monster - I think she's soooooo sweet!:


And here's the Boy Monster version - I gave him bags of popcorn, rather than cupcakes to carry...



These Monster Hugs are part of Stampin' Up!'s Valentine's range, and you are running out of time to get yours, 'cause they retire on 27th January. They're available from my Online Shop, and cost just £5.50 (plus shipping) for a pack of  eighteen boys, or eighteen girls. All the products I've used in the video are listed in the table at the end of this post, and if you click on any of the pictures, you'll be taken directly to that item in my shop. Or, of course, if you'd prefer to, you can just email or call me with your order. And, lastly, here is the video. It's my first time recording a project video, and I was really nervous, but I hope you enjoy watching it. I'd love to know what you think of it!ropping by, and I'll see you again in a couple of days' time. Have fun until then!

I'm hooked on these little Monster Hugs (can you tell?), and I'm trying to make the most of them before they vanish forever on the 27th January. Here's another cute project for you - this is what we're making today at our Open House Event as the Make and Take.

I didn't realise they still made these Drumstick lollipops! They're perfect as a little sweet treat, and all you have to do is peel the backing off the sticky bit that hides behind the Monster's arms, and pop them in place, wrapping the arms round. They even have a little "label" on the back:

How cute is that?! I love his little bottom, and the heart "tattoo". I did the girl version too:

Sweeeeet!!! I have another project to share with you, but you'll need to wait until Monday for that one - I'm recording a video of it. (Still nervous, but a bit less so since my first video went up at the start of this week. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU for all your lovely comments; you've made my week!) Don't forget: the gorgeous Monster Hugs (along with the rest of our fabulous Valentine's Day range) are only available until 27th January. If you haven't got yours yet, email me with your order, or hop over to my Online Shop. They're too cute to miss out on...
