Finally, it has stopped raining here on the Sunshine Coast and things are starting to feel normal! My papers are liking this weather better, I have tried to protect them by keeping them in the bags they arrived in, but my envelopes weren't that lucky! I recently purchased envelopes (only 500 of them) and about half of them have actually sealed themselves due to the rain and the humidity. So if anyone has any suggestions on classes I can run using sealed envelopes, much appreciated!!
So the past few weeks have been busy, with new stock arriving all the time and trying to find spots for everything to fit!! But I finally feel like I am getting organised!!
Classes have started and are slowly attracting a bit of interest with locals and holiday makers!
Since I have been a Stampin' Up! demonstrator for so long, it's fun, exciting and very interesting to see what other companies and products are on the market today (but also very hard to try and decide what to get!)
I have lots of different goodies from a few favourite companies, Hero Arts Stamps, Basic Grey Papers, Graphic 45 Papers, 7 Gyspies Papers, Crate Paper and Cosmo Cricket.
I have also just received my first order from the USA for some stamps from The Greeting Farm. These stamps are fun and funky and are great for colouring with Copic Markers (which I am slowly becoming obsessed with). Also my first order of Copic Markers will be arriving in store this coming week. Plus still waiting for my Magnolia Stamps to arrive.So lots of new and exciting products to look at and play with!!
Above are a few cards I have been making using new products from Hero Arts and Basic Grey and my earlier attempts of colouring with Copic Markers (these cards are actually unfinished, I had added some sentiments, was about to photograph them finished, but someone walked into the shop, saw them and purchased them!!)
