It's nearly here ....

....the launch of wor Sheena's new embossing folders, that is.  Yes, peeps only one more sleep to go until you can see them in all their glory, together with all the lovely samples that my teamies and I have been making lately.  Here's another one from me that will hopefully tempt you into indulging in a little retail therapy:

This one is made with the Trailing Ivy A4 folder and some of Sheena's stamps from past collections, the Ivy Paint Fusion stamp. the Always Floral plate and the Only Words Through the Rain set.  I added in lots of Luminarte goodies (of course) some Pebeo Gilding Wax and there you have it!

Since the shows are only tomorrow, I'll give you an extra little sneaky peek because I'm good like that!:

This is the Ancient Arches embossing folder, one of the 5" x 7" ones and I've used it here with the Falling Feathers stamps clear embossed on to Kraft Card.

Well, I can't wait for the first show tomorrow at 8.00 a.m. and then Sheena's on again at 1.00 and 5.00 p.m.  The other show times are:
TUES 28th…..9am,4pm and 7pm
WED 29th…..10am and 2pm
THURS 30th…..12noon and 5pm
Thanks for looking again today.

The excitement builds ......

Yes, peeps - the excitement is building towards the launch of wor Sheena's wonderful new embossing folders with a 4 Day Deal on Create and Craft TV starting on Monday at 8.00 a.m.

Here's today's sneak peek at one of the A4 folders - sorry, I can't remember what it's called but it's the one with all the flowers on!!  Anyhoo, you won't just want to buy one of them, will you?

Isn't this the blingtastic one, eh?!  The effect is obtained by using alcohol pens on acetate then spreading them with blending solution on a piece of foam packaging.  You then spread Versamark or Perfect Medium on the debossed side of the embossing folder and place the non-inked side of the acetate against it and whizz it through the machine.  Follow this up with some gold glitter embossing powder (I used a WOW! one) and mount the piece over some white Centura Pearl card, coated side up and 'Presto' you have it!  However, if you watch the shows, you may well see the lovely lady herself demo this technique.

Please pay me a visit tomorrow to see another sample and thank you for looking today.

Let the Sneaky Peeks begin ....

Good afternoon, peeps!  Well it does seem a long time since I blogged - did you miss me?

Anyhoo, I'm back to tell you that wor Sheena has been busy again designing new embossing folders.  There are 8, 5" x 7" ones and 4, A4 ones in the collection and they're fabulous.  They will be launched as a Four Day Deal on Create and Craft TV, starting on Monday 27 January at 8.00 a.m. and there are a total of 4 shows on Monday.
