Corrrrrr....

...Blimey! And! Thrice!  Thank you all for your amazing Tweets, comments, messages, emails and support for yesterday's show.  I loved every minute of it ... and... even better... I get to do it all again today!  Twice!  Quick reminder for show times:  11am Create & Craft and 5pm Ideal World.  And... shhhh, don't tell anyone but... I am realllllly hoping I will have a very special surprise for you all on the 5pm show (finger's x'd and all that!)  Here are a couple of samples featured on last nights shows:



This one is a tag (no, you don't say lol) and I have added a Studio 490 Art Part Tag Topper to it.... I lurves Tag Toppers - they add a bit of extra dimension to the ordinary tag.  Background of Bundled Sage DI and stamping with Metallic Distress Stain to create the snowflakes... quick, simples and very pretty (I lurves Bundled Sage... )  The Adornment was coloured with Brushed Pewter Stain and dried, then I dabbed Pine Needles Stain onto the leaves.  Who knew that Metallic Stain would stick to metal?  I didn't, I just tried it out... and it worked... tis all about experimenting.




And then there is a really simple card... bit of stamping and some Paper String and a Christmas Muse Token and voila!  At least I have some Christmas cards made already this year now... instead of leaving it til the second week of December when I normally hurtle around like a loon... nowt like leaving it to the last minute....    Speaking of which... I really should go... I am setting off to the studio's in a couple of mins... I have some cracking goodies on both of the shows today... and... don't forget... ssshhhhhh, don't tell anyone... special surprise on the 5pm show (finger's X'd and phone's working and all that **wink wink**)  Thank you all again... you are all amazing!  Sorry I haven't had a chance to reply to messages and Tweets... my phone is steampowered and by the time I got home last night it was getting verrrry late... I will have a catch up this evening ..... Thanks for looking... have a grand day... TTFN

Hi Hels. Loved the show last night. Loved the tag you made and you didn't get at all inky. You had some amazing goodies. That string was beautiful. Watched it in bed with 2 cats and a dog for company so couldn't get near the computer to order anything so hopping off now to order - hope there's some stuff left. Looking forward to todays shows and the "surprise"

Michelle Webb said...

I watched the show, you had lots of lovely projects on there. Brilliant to see what we're all doing with the same stamps. Michelle x

Neil said...

Hi. Managed to catch last nights show, it was great. I've recently "re discovered" Chipped Sapphire so was pleased to see you use it last night!
Good luck tonight, unfortunately I can't get Create and Craft and will miss Ideal world as I'll be at work so hopefully it'll repeat, or you'll just have to tell us here tomorrow!

Carole Z said...

Fabulous last night Hels and I parted with some dosh!
I've got to record todays shows as i'm out, but will really look forward to them when I get home! Have a great day, Carole Z X

craftimamma said...

As I said on FB earlier, fab show last night which I watched again this morning when I wasn't giving any attention to ordering goodies, lol! Got my day planned around your two shows and woe betide anyone who might pop in, lol! I knew your samples for the shows would be gorgeous but it's so nice to see them on here so we can look at the detail. Wonderful tag and very classy card. I ordered the stamps last night so might have to shamelessly use your design for a few of my Christmas cards 'cos I like it so much ;0)

Have a brilliant day Hels!

Hugs
Lesley Xx

This looks beautiful Hels!

Joanne said...

I watched it and I recorded it and I drooled over it (not literally of course) and am ready to do the same today - x2. Your samples are to die for and I so need the poinsettia set.

Helen said...

Saw some of the 10pm show as I can watch that on my tv rather than the computer which doesn't work well for tv viewings. Really love some of those Christmas stamps! Good luck later today, Hels!

Cornish Emma said...

Morning Hels, glad you had a great show i managed to catch the beginning and order my goodies but missed you demo's as it was so late (i get up for work at 4AM!) But will be watching your demo's today. Emma

Rita said...

Brilliant show Hels, but I had hoped you would get to do another demo. The presenter kept interupting all the time. Got to-day's on record as I'm off for a hospital appointment in a mo. Good Luck for to-day's shows. Hugs Rita xx

Redanne said...

Great show last night Hels, once again you made me part with my cash ..... but it was so worth it to get those tag tops and lots of other much needed goodies! Hugs, Anne x

Mark Perry said...

Lucy Edmondson said...

Absolutely superb shows - learnt such a lot and want all the products! Have a friend coming round at teatime and have told her I will ignore her at 5 pm!

craftypam60 said...

Another brill show Hels!! Love how you use the products and explain everything so well - these shows are a real treat! Ofvto get mucky paws in my craft room hehe xx

Kathy/NorthCarolina said...

Gorgeous tag! And I love how delicate the card is. Can't catch your show here in the states, but if it is anything like your blog, I know it was wonderful.

darcydaydream said...

blimming heck Hels...loving all the demos but have parted with more cash....have to sneak the parcels in to my room of stash so OH doesn't see....lol ...eagerly awaiting 5pm show.....great shows.....Christine in Essex....xx

Shazza said...

aw Hels, I never got to see ANY of your shows, am very sad :((((

I am sure they were fantastic thoug, big hugs x

cardgirl said...

May I call you Hels? Feels bit rude but only name I know you by....
Oh Holly Miss Molly!!! You need to have your own Tim Holtz dedicated channel. Or I'll settle for more & more hours on c&c, lol.
You are BRILLIANT, recorded & watched your shows last night & today, just LOVE anything Tim Holtz but would be rubbish in hands of someone who didn't have your know how & passion! You make it look so accessible for the crafter at home. All I need now is bank balance to match Tim Holtz products & I'd be in heaven. So frustrating to drool over things you can't have! Lol.
Please keep bringing us your inspiration. Thank you. Caroline :)

sheila said...

missed todays shows ( so don't know what your surprise was in 5pm show). Thankfully I stayed up last night to watch you. It was a really exciting show, just find your creativity so fasinating.

Julia S-W said...

So enjoyed the 11.00 show but didn't get to see the 17.00 one.Did it go ahead I wonder with the hush hush guest!! It's a shame they don't let you do ALL the show really as I don't think you need a presenter ;) Your demos were fab - so professional and your explanations make the techniques accessible to most. Great tip with the metallic stains on metal and the mirror card.
Safe journey back!
