Thursday 6 March 2014


Good afternoon
Just sat in the hairdressers which means I have at last found some time to blog!!!!!!!
Wanted to let you all know that I am back in air next week.
I am on on Monday for craft clinic at 11am for two hours of the Brother Scan and Cut.

Then on Tuesday I have four hours 8am, 1pm, 3 pm and 7pm and then on. These include Brother, Project Life and Martha Stewart clay then on to  Ideal World for a bargain packed pick of the day!!!! Can't say anything else yet!

On Thursday I have two Brother hours and on Friday I am bringing ZENTANGLE back to air with fabulous new stencils and brown fineliner pens to give a fabulous new look.

If you an please join me for lots of new ideas and demos and a good dose of fun

Also if any of you live near Jo Channons' shop in Lincoln, I will be there demonstrating stencils and embossing paste on Saturday with some great techniques so pop along if you can.

That's it for now.

Take care
Love and hugs
Melanie xxx

  4. hi Mel

    can you please help me I've made a load of wedding invites and I made a mistake, I need to get the verse of, any tips on how to do this with out ripping the card please please :(
    kind regards julie

  5. Hi Julie
    Can you email me a picture of the invite so I cans ee what needs doing?

  6. Just watched a recorded version of the Craft Clinic & how much did I learn ? Shed loads !! Thank you so much. I did write in with a question but unfortunately it wasn't covered on the show & I didn't know if you'd be able to help ? I realise that you're busy, busy, busy this week & I'll be glued to each show. I would like to make stencils on the BSC so what material would you recommend & blade settings ? Also John mentioned making embossing folders, I assume that would be in the same way.... make a stencil & then run it through a die cutting machine with an embossing mat.... is that correct ? Good luck with all the shows. Just love the enthusiasm x

  7. Hi Melanie, I've finally got around to playing with my Scan n Cut and have just blogged my first project! thought you might like to have a look, Julie.x
    I've given you a little mention too :) x

  8. Hi Claire
    I use Doeflex sheets for both techniques. They should be available on line.x

  9. Thanks Mel for getting back to me as I realise you've got a rather hectic week. I've caught most of the shows & a bargain or too as well. Great stuff

  10. Hi Julie
    That is absolutely fantastic. Good job! Can you also tell me where you got your header for your blog please:)
    Keep up the good work.x

  11. Hi, me again, my header was designed by a talented blogging buddy, the lovely Lou

  12. Hi Julie
    Does she design them for a living?

  13. She's designed several for friends, I know she was considering doing it professionally, I've sent her a message to check, might be a while before she replies because of the time difference

  14. Have just heard from her, will send you an email x
