New Beginnings


Hi everyone and apologies for my little haitus.

I have been on annual leave and a lot has gone on "behind the scenes" with big big changes for me personally.

Firstly, I am no longer a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator.  I made what was a huge decision to resign.  There were many reasons that I took into consideration before doing so and it was not done lightly.

I was a demonstrator for nearly six years, and during that time I built up a fantastic and much valued customer base.  It is those people whom I have to thank for helping me to grow as a papercrafter.  The many many happy chats on the phone, the lovely cards and gifts; the email messages and little words of advice and encouragement and support helped to spur me on.

So with some sadness, but also an excited heart, I can share that I have been accepted on many affiliate programmes such as Arteza, Tonic, Altenew, My Favourite Things, Lawn Fawn, Hero Arts, Sizzix and Spellbinders.... to name just a few.

I shall be locked a way for a little time working on some exciting new projects, using lots of different new and innovative papercrafting "brands" and products and enjoying myself.

There is a huge big wide papercrafting world out there and I am going to dive in and have fun crafting without limitation or restrictions.

I hope you will join me on the way.

Thank you for reading.

Bye for now ................and "happy crafting" everybody.

Linda xx

  36. I have followed you for several years and am in awe of your creativity. I have seen several posts by "former" SU demonstrators just today. I am sorry they felt they had to restrict your creativity. Glad you will be staying around crafting. You have sparked my creative juices MANY times! Thank you! (This is SU's loss to say the least).

  37. Going to miss you. Your tutorials have been an inspiration for me. I was a Spellblogger for Spellbinders a few years ago and they do have some amazing products so enjoy. I have lots of Spellbinder dies and felt so privileged when I affiliated for them. I still have all my Spellbinder dies as I cannot part with them, lol.

    Wishing you all the very best for your crafting future and I hope to see you still on You Tube etc...

    Happy Crafting. xxx
