Hi all do you fancy being part of an amazing opportunity? Stampin’Up! UK are doing a wonderful Card challenge for the Ronald McDonald House Charities which they support and I would love you to join my Team and I to help them succeed in making 20,000 Cards.

As you can see above my Team and I have taken on the challenge again from Stampin’ Up! to make as many Christmas cards as we can to add to the total.

We are doing our challenge on Saturday 2nd December  😀 we have a range of easy cards for everyone to make so you really don’t have to be a crafter to come and help us out, if you know anyone that could come along with you to help us please let us know we will be very grateful for all the help we can get.

We will be starting the challenge at 10am and finishing at approx 4pm, we will split the day up into hourly slots so if you only can come for an hour that’s absolutely fine but if you want to stay longer that’s great 😁 all that I ask is please can you book in as we can only seat 15 crafters at any one time although we do have a breakout area with sofas in if you need to wait a few minutes, Refreshments will be available.

The cost for this charity challenge will be £5.00 if you bring a friend that will reduce to £4.00 this money is towards the cost of the event it’s NOT being run as a profit making event if there is money over after all the costs have been covered it will go directly to The Ronald McDonald charity.

So the challenge is on we would love to see you all to help us make a difference see below some of the cards we will be making ✂️✂️✂️✂️😁😁



It’s been a very busy October 😊

Hi Everyone 😄

Well we are now on the last day of October and what a busy month we have had at Jilly’s Creative Corner, I started on 1st October with the afternoon monthly class in this one I showed the ladies how to do the ‘Shaving foam’ technique we had great fun mixing up different colours and then I designed a card to showcase their work, see the picture below and I’m sure you will be amazed at how different the colours look 😁

So following on from this great class my next one was a team event, my team Sam, Nicky, Lorraine and myself got together and each designed a Christmas card and we ran a day of crafting we called it ‘Stamp a stack’ so everyone who came along made 16 Christmas cards 4 of each of the designs we all had a fabulous day below is a picture of us all holding two cards each so all the designs where shown. 😁

and finally my last class of this month was my monthly craft day this time I showed the ladies how to make a luminaire (Thanks to Linda Parker for the inspiration) and then we had a great afternoon of napkins and glitter (Thanks to my friend Gill Ingram for showing me this technique a couple of years ago and reminding me again about it) the pictures below show the ladies amazing cards and Luminaires 😄

Hi There

This is my first Blog on my new website, so here goes. :-)

I hope you all had a great Christmas and New Year, Ours was very quiet this year as both our grown up children didn’t come home this time, Katie and her partner live in Melbourne, so a bit far for her to pop home, and Niko and his fiancée live in London, but both my Hubby’s Mom and My Daddy and of course our lovely Labradors Gracie and Maisie were here with us.

We have had much excitement in the last few weeks with the release of the Spring/Summer Stampin’ Up! catalogue (to us Demo’s at the moment) but to all our Lovely Customers its available for you to order from on Tuesday 5th  January 2016, not only that but its the start of the amazing Sale-A-Bration this is an extra special treat :-) for every £45 you spend from any of the Stampin’ Up! catalogues, you can choose a free product out of the Sale-A-Brations brochure, Sale-A-Brations run from Tuesday 5th January 2016 through to Thursday 31st March 2016, so plenty of time to collect your freebies.

You can pop over to my on-line shop and take a look and purchase any of  the lovely new products, there is something there for everyone.

I will be starting my new Technique classes on Saturday 9th January, we will be learning how to ‘Heat Emboss’ which you can use for all sorts of projects, anyone wishing to join in these classes, you can contact me on the ‘contact me’ form on my website or email me. :-)
