My big news!

I've been hinting that I had something exciting happening for ages and I can finally let the cat out of the bag! On the 5th November at 1pm I will be guest presenting on a live show on Create and Craft Shopping Channel.

On the show I will be premiering three of my CDs
It's Funky Too, Funky Seasons and V Funky

I've been working hard over the last month updating the CDs content and I have added lots of great new extras and papers. The new updated versions of the CDs will be launched on Create and Craft and then on my website.

It's been such a busy time getting everything ready over the last few weeks and then last Friday I had to go down to the Ideal World studios in Peterborough to do a screen test before my appearance was confirmed. I was pretty nervous but, thankfully, it all went well and you will have the dubious pleasure of seeing my ugly mug on the telly talking about my CDs and doing a few card demos in November!

I thought I would share the card that I designed and made for my screen test, unfortunately I wont be able to use my Bella stamps in the live show as I don't have the copyright to do so..and Create and Craft don't sell them so I will be using other things but for the screen test I could do what I liked so this is what I came up with.

I now have to start designing cards and scrap pages for the show so wish me luck!
Luckily for me though I have had some amazing help with making the cards as examples to have on the show and I would like to say a really big thank you to Samm Livett (see her fantastic blog By Samm) and Shirley B, for creating the most fantastic cards with the papers from my CDs. Having these great examples will make me much more confident about showing my designs to the crafting TV viewers!

I'd also like to thank my wonderful techy partner Ian for all his hard work since we started the business, I think he got a little payback on Friday when we were sat in the Green room at the studios waiting to be called for my screen test and three models came in and sat next to him on the time he will be taking his camera to have his picture taken to prove to all his geeky work mates what he was upto on his day off.. bless!
