It's all go .....

Goood Morning!

Lots of news and updates for you - the main one being that I am starting classes again - yay!!!

I'll be running card classes ....

Card making classes

Scrapbook classes .....

Scrapbook Classes

And lastly, mixed media/technique classes ...

Faery Door Mixed Media Class
Well it's all go here at Bryson Towers.  As a lot of you know (and some don't), I've moved back to my home town of Wallasey.  It's a 10 minute drive from Liverpool (under the river), and is based on the Wirral.  I have a totally new life, and it's taken me a while to settle down into it, and pick myself up again after my operation.  I can't believe that it's been a year this Saturday, and I can't believe how long it's taken me to adapt, but I have! YAY!.

I'm now at the stage, where I can start planning for the future, and I am bringing back my classes.  Initially, until I build my business up again, they will be ran from home with class sizes ranging from 4-6 people.  I will also be holding a monthly crop on a Saturday, although I am still in discussions with the venue owner - but I will have confirmation of the first date very shortly, so please keep popping back for more details.

Stampin Up

I am hoping to be able to pick my Stampin Up business again too - I needed to let go a bit in order to recover and recuperate.  I'd love to be able to build my team up again, and offer the kind of support, fun and laughter that we had previously.  I still offer FREE training for anybody who joins my team - so if you are looking into starting your own business for just £99 and/or would love a discount on all your purchases, then please give me a shout and we can 'hook up' as the Americans say!

There are lots of offers and clearance products via my online shop - some of these products are at a HUGE, MASSSIVE discount, so click the 'shop now' button to the right of my blog, and have a meander.  You can either place your order online, or via myself.

Stamp Club
I have a couple of places left on one of my stampers club/groups.  You commit to spending £15 per month, or more (plus postage) and it helps spread the cost of your supplies.  You will also receive offers, free catalogues, free tutorials and sneaky peaks of products before anyone else etc. etc...  If you are interested in joining up, then please contact me on

As always, if you have any questions or queries, then please email me on or text me on 07747 465186, and I will call you back.

I look forward to hearing from you all, and hopefully seeing you all in the near future.

It's the Season to be jolly ...... NEW launch!

Today is the launch of the 2016/2017 Autumn & Winter Catalogue - yay!!!!  You can find the online catalogue HERE for your ease ... or I can send you a hard copy in the post.

This years catalogue is full to bursting with new products .... papers, stamp sets, framelits, punches, ribbons, embellishments!  Watch out for the amazing bundles that are on offer - they give you an extra 10% off, so well worth considering buying the bundle, rather than individually.

You can place your orders by shopping online - click on the SHOP NOW button, email me on or call/text me on 07747 465186.

As a demonstrator, we are lucky enough to be able to pre-order some of the products to try before recommending them to you ... these are just a few of my favourites ...

'Santa' framelit ... too cute for words ... the 'curls' of his beard can be used as 'waves' for seaside cards, layouts etc....

Next are these stunning glitter embossing powders ... love, love, love em!

The Santa hat punch has a matching stamp set - and is available as a bundle .. I'll show you some samples over the next few days ....

How cute are these embellishments?!?!?  Oh my days ... love em!

There's a large selection of new washi tape sets for you - I love the colours in the set below, which have papers AND a stamp/framelit bundle to co-ordinate with them.

So ... grab yourselves a coffee and some chocolate biscuits, and get ready to drool ... erm .. dribble ... let me know what you think ...  and don't forget to pop back to see more samples.

You can also see my 2016-2017 Autumn Winter Catalogue Pinterest Page where you will be able to see more products and samples from the catalogue.

Enjoy!  See ya soon - Cal xxx

Thinking about ...

.... lots of things, but in particular this ....

This is without doubt one of my most favourite bundles ever.  There are so many different ways to use this set ... I showed you how I had used the tree on a layout that I had designed for the Croydon weekend retreat, but there are so many other ways to use this set - think Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter trees ...  the sentiments can also be used all year round .... and it is such a bargain!
£46.75 is the cost of this kit, and combined with my offer of free postage on orders over £45 (excluding stamp group orders), then you have a massive combined saving!

HERE is a page from Pinterest showing you all the different ways that you can use this set.

Don't forget, if you received a coupon from last months SU offer, then you can use that against the cost of this bundle too!

The NEW Autumn/Winter catalogue will be launched on the 2nd September - there are so many NEW products in this edition, that it will blow your mind!!!  I promise!  To make sure that you get your hands on a copy of the catalogue, make sure that firstly, you have requested one and secondly, that I have your address.  To earn a copy for free, then place an order this month to qualify.

Keep your eyes peeled on Pinterest for upcoming sneaky peaks .... ;)  I might be tempted to do a very quick video when my next pre-order arrives!  I'm not sure if I've mentioned it before, but demonstrators get to pre-order a month before any catalogues are launched - this means, that if you were tempted to sign up as a demonstrator, then you can choose some of these new products in your starter kit!  whoop whoop!

As always, to place any order, or if you have any queries, please email me on - or shop at the button above 24/7 or call/text me on 07747 465186 (it's great to chat at times) :)

Thoughtful Times

It is definitely a thoughtful time for me - because of this amazing llimited edition bundle called Thoughtful Branches.  I think this could quite possibly be my most favourite bundle ever!

It really is for a limited time only - available only in August.   I don't tend to buy the limited products because it doesn't make good business sense, to carry around stock and use it, then not be able to sell it to customers - however, for this set, I have made an exception - I absolutely love it!   I've used it for all different types of media - from scrapbooking to cards, to canvas ... everything!

The cost is £46.75 for the bundle - but don't forget, if you earned coupons from last months coupon offer, then you can reduce the cost.  ALSO, as the order is over £45, you will receive free P&P to deliver it directly to your door.

I have a Pinterest page with lots of suggestions on how to use this bundle HERE and a main link  HERE  REMEMBER though, this bundle is only offered on a first come first served, and limited time offer.

Contact me today to order yours. or call/text me on 07747 465186

Here's a sneaky peek using the bundle, from the Croydon Retreat kits.

Pop back for more ideas!  Look forward to hearing from you xxx

I have some sneaky peeks for you of 6 different scrapbook kits/classes that I have designed.  I will be teaching these classes at the Croydon Summer Crop next weekend (5/6/7 August), and then I will make the kits available to non-attendees.

Each kit contains enough products to complete TWO scrapbook pages.  Full instructions will be provided for one layout, and is included in the price.  The cost of each kit is £6 (plus postage), and if you wish to purchase all 6 kits (which will make up 12 scrapbook pages) the cost is £35 plus £2.95 postage.

DEMONSTRATORS - Instructions only will be available for £3 per scrapbook page, and will be available from the 8th August.

There may be one or two of the 'accessories' that you won't have purchased yet, and these will be included in the kit.  If you don't have the particular stamp sets, then the pages are designed in a way that alternative stamps can be used.

To place your orders, or to order the scrapbook kits (or instructions), then please kindly email me on or call/text me on 07747 465186.

Finally ...

August - there is an amazing limited edition stamp set and framelit bundle being launched.  Why not use your Bonus Day coupons towards this 'got to have' bundle?!?!  Keep your eyes peeled for more details, or visit my Pinterest page and look for Thoughtful Branches - it really is a beautiful bundle!

September - There are lots of exciting events coming up in September, We will see the launch of the new Autumn/Winter Catalogue - you seriously don't want to miss out on this ... lots of amazing and exciting new products ... actually, you will want the whole catalogue, so start arranging those 2nd Mortgages!!!!!!

I am hoping to launch a new crop and classes in the Wallasey area - more details to follow.

Xmas Card classes will be starting during the day and evening in September, but possibly August if I get myself organised, and if there is demand - so tell me what you want!!!!

Catch you all soon - keep popping back for more updates, sneaky peaks and exciting news!

Thank You!
Thank you to everyone who sponsored my partners Mum, Mary when she recently took part in the Race for Life.  I thought you would like to see a photograph of her crossing the finishing line with her sisters!   Mary managed to raise almost £700 from the event, and I think at 70+ that that is a massive achievement!

I have three places left for a new stampers group starting next month.  If you would like to be the 'virtual' hostess for one of the months, and earn at least £15 to spend on whatever you wish, then please contact me.  You commit to spending at least £15 per month for 10 months.

I can't say too much,  but there is a nice surprise coming in the not too distant future, and you will have the coupons to spend then.  Or why not order your 'essentials' ie., tape runners, double sided tape, cardstock etc. etc... and qualify for a coupon that way.

Well, I hope you are all okay?  I've been receiving some fabulous photos from customers with projects from the new catalogue.  Here are a few projects from Jane Bryan - aren't they stunning?  I particularly love the butterfly cards using the butterfly punch, and the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set.
