Scrap365 & Silhouette / GraphtecUK

Today I was flicking through the latest issue of Scrap365 magazine and this caught my eye...

At the end of last year Karine at Graphtec had asked if she could use a pic of one of my scrapbook layouts for an ad she was doing, of course I said yes, and here it is!

This is the layout...
and a few close ups...
This was made using the Documented365 range and my instagram pictures along with a few other bits and pieces, I think it's one of my favourite recent layouts, it makes me realise how much I've missed scrapbooking these last few weeks when I've been too busy to do any - must make some studio time this week!

Today has been a very busy day, I had a visitor from a print company that I use who filmed a little behind the scenes video here at Hurley HQ and then I spent the afternoon working on lots of new things, there are so many exciting new things in the pipeline, it literally makes my tummy flip to think about it all!

Now I must be off, I'm going to have dinner with B tonight as due to C&C last week, my sister staying over the weekend and a very busy start to the week, I've barely seen him or Fuzzybutt, I will be back to the drawing board later though!

Thank you for dropping by today!

Create & Craft Show Update!

As you know, if you've been watching my Promarker 4 Day Deal shows on Create & Craft, stock was very limited when I left last night and I was told it was unlikely I would be back today, I've just had it confirmed this morning that there are only a handful of sets left which will probably all sell out before I could get there, so no shows for me today!

I'll be back soon, but in the meantime, if you were hanging on, now is definitely the time to get them!

If you were planning on emailing in to the show today with your questions etc... please leave them here in the comments and I will do a post in a couple of days answering them all and try to cover them on my next show.

Thank you to everyone who tuned in and emailed in, I've loved reading every single one of your lovely comments and looking at your work too.

Thanks for dropping by today!

Firstly, a BIG thank you to everyone who has been watching and emailing in to the Promarker shows on Create & Craft, just two more days to go so if you have any questions, please do email them into the studio during the hours and I'll try to answer as many of them as possible!

I promised I would put the colour chart up for you, so here it is...
