Arianna Blooms Sneak Peek and Blog Candy Winner

Good morning everyone! I am trusting you all had a good weekend. I have been busy prepping for Thursdays 4 shows and had a lovely roast dinner  yesterday cooked by my daughter Sophie which was rather unexpected and totally delicious:)

Blog Candy Winner

Firstly It is time to reveal the Blog Candy Giveaway winner:)..........The winner of a Heartfelt Creations stamp of your choice and some gorgeous crafting goodies is....... Olive Ann Jones!!!! Congratulations Olive:) If you email me your details I will get your chosen stamp ordered.

Update on Journey Album Kit

Now I know you have all been super patient with me announcing when you can order the kits, but I am afraid due to the my busy schedule this week I am unable to finish the video tutorial until this Friday:( and until this is finished and completely ready I don't want to start taking orders.  I hope you understand.  So the date that it will be available to purchase is going to be Monday 9th. I feel this would be much better.  I can then  post your kits out almost immediately after you order and send you a link to the tutorial. I have also been asked for other kits so will be able to work on these next week.
Also the website will be coming soon, but again my priority at the moment has to be prepping for my 4 shows on Thursday......25 cards made and hopefully  another 8 and a few other projects to go and of course the very important demo's (8 in total) using the beautiful Arianna Blooms collection!....which brings me to my card today:) A sneak peek of  one of the cards I have made for the show:

  • This is a very pretty collection with Hibiscus type flower stamps and matching die, beautiful paper pad and also a very delicate lace die set.
  • The stamp I have used on this card is Arianna Vines precut set - HCPC 3610
  • I have used both the Arianna Blooms stamp, matching die and also the decorative Arianna Lace die.
Sorry, but I am not going to do a full tutorial on this card as I really need to get back to creating.....however if any of you would like any info on how I made it then I would be happy to answer any questions, but it will be next week:( Having said that this is one of my planned demo's so do tune in on Thursday....I still don't have times yet, but I will keep you all informed.
I will be back tomorrow with another sneak peek:)
Bye for now x


  1. Gosh Nikki, you have been busy. With so much going on in your life already it must be difficult to include all the extras like videos, kits and samples for shows. It takes me ages to make just one card - good thing you're not as slow as me! Your card today is so pretty. Love the colours - the stamps and dies look delightful. I'll be tuning in on Thursday.

  2. Hi Nikki,
    Oh this is so stunning, I always love the colours you use....can't wait to see your shows.
    I know you're are very busy but do try and get of 'me' time...your health is so important.
    Congratulations to Olive lucky lady and enjoy your goodies.
