Tick Tock, Crafty Clock

Tick, Tock, Crafty Clock

One event that I help my Upline, Sandra Roberts, out is the Sincerely Yours craft fair at Thetford.  This year the first one was in January, so to ensure that there were loads of samples and display items, a couple of Sandra’s demos spent the day together working on a number of samples.

One 3D project we worked on could not be shared as it was also one of Sandra’s retreat projects.

I love the colours that Stampin’ Up! produce especially the Melon Mambo which you will see that I have chosen for my business colour.  With this in mind I decided that as I was also holding a Perennial Birthday all day class that I would use the same set and produce my own display samples.
