Thanks so much - demo day!

Good morning! I just want to say a BIG  "Thank You" to Heather from Paperworks, Dungannon for making me feel so welcome on Saturday. There is so much gorgeous stock in the shop I hardly knew where to start with my samples! It was great to meet so many happy crafters and get to know some of you whom I've "come across" in blogland but never met. It was lovely, too, to meet all the others whom I now know will be "quietly" reading these posts but have never got in touch before! I hope you all enjoyed it as much as I did and I'm looking forward to doing it again some time..

The card at the top is one of my "card-igans" but I've used the Tonic Studios Daisy Square Die as the collar this time instead of the border punch.

Now, I have a couple of things to answer..
Lena .... the pop up box for the card you asked about starts off with a piece of card measuring 11cm x 28cm. You then score it at 2.5cm, 7cm, 9.5cm, 18.5cm, 21cm and 25cm.
The slit for the doily and image is made at 14cm but you must leave 1cm at each side of the box to hold it together. If you go to THIS link on Splitcoaststampers you'll get the idea and you can use my measurements to fit the doily die.
If there is anything else you need to know just ask here or you could ask Heather to pass it on to me.

Geraldine... this is the Super Trimmer I was telling you about.

You can read the details HERE.
The legs at the side fold away when you don't need them and the little scorer and trimmer blade have pointers on the top, bottom and sides to show you where to start/stop you blade or scorer. Hope this helps.

Unfortunately the photos I took of my demo cards did not turn out well enough to use (that will teach me for rushing it!) so I'll just have to spend some time hand stitching another little square die bag!!

Thanks again for coming and it really was lovely to meet you all.
