You have mail...(well Penguin Post!)

Well hello there everyone!

Hope you are all well and had a wonderful Tuesday...I can't believe tomorrow we are mid-week, time really is flying! It has also been nearly a week since George moved out and I have missed him muchly, although his room is now spotless and all the glasses and plates he had stored (forgotten to bring back downstairs) up there have finally made their way back down to the kitchen...hallelujah!

I thought I would share with you a Christmas easel, shaker card which features Torvil the penguin from the new Christmas collection. I have used a black and yellow colour way, which I think gives an unusual, but effective festive, vintage feel! The shaker is made from the inside reel off of a roll of double sided tape (see I can be thrifty...sometimes!)  and even if I do say so myself I do love the postcard stamp and the 'postage stamp' sized stamps which are used to embellish and to add sentiment..they are so cute!

I hope you like, and whilst I'm here I would just like to say a huge thank you to all old and new followers for your continued and growing support, I just love reading all your comments and your feedback and seeing all of the beautiful projects that you create with my stamps! I hope to continue to inspire you and also gain inspiration off you :)

Must dash now...The Great British Bake Off is on and Molly and I love watching it together!
Have a happy week,

Love Clare

Good Evening...

Hope you have all had a lovely albeit a tad blustery Saturday...Autumn has well and truly arrived! I have been over at The Craft Box in Elsecar today holding a workshop...and I will be back there tomorrow for a second installment!

I thought I would just pop by and share with you these quick snaps of two different cards using stamps from my new Christmas collection,  which the ladies created at a workshop at Grosvenor House Papers in Kendal on Wednesday, it was a lovely day and a joy to be able to finish two projects one day!

Sorry its a short but hopefully sweet blog, but needs must and I am off to enjoy my dinner and put my feet up in order to re-charge my batteries ready for tomorrow :)

Have a lovely rest of the weekend
Happy Crafting!

Love Clare

Christmas Collection!

Hi everyone!
Hope you are all well today! I've had a rather busy day as we've been kitting George out for his student digs- I think I'll be sending him with literally everything barr the kitchen sink as I'm assured that one will be provided in the halls! I'm dreading the day we pack him off and move him in and Molly and David have already told me a can't sit and sob every tea time for the next 6 weeks nor can I just nip and clean his bathroom for him!
Anywho as promised I'm back to share with you a few images from a recent demonstration in which I was showcasing my new Molly Blooms Christmas Collection for 2011! Torvill and Dean play a part this year, aswell as Jeff the Gingerbread man and Duncan the camel! I hope you like them as much as I have enjoyed designing them and playing with them. Of course I have used my ever faithful copic pens and My Minds Eye and October Afternoon papers to create my samples, with the majority of my work having quite a vintage feel! A huge thankyou to all who came, was lovely to see you and I can't wait to see what everybody creates with the range!

Well I hope you all feel a little inspired and ready to create some Christmassy treats, all of the new designs have been winging their way to the retailers this week and to see where they are all available click here.
Signing off now, I hope you all have a stamp happy & craft happy weekend. I'm off to North Allerton to The Paperlane for a weekend of demonstrations and workshops, so if you are in the area it would be wonderful to see you!
Be back sooner rather than later :)
Love Clare

Time for a change!

Happy Autumn everyone!
With it being the beginning of a brand new season (although todays lovely weather has already out shone the whole of Autumn!) I thought I would give the blog a little re-style :)
So yes, I'm back with hopefully some little delights to post for all you lovely people!

Love Clare
