nice to meet you

We had a great two day at the Summer Special. It was lovely to meet some new faces. I had a good sort out too and that helped re organise the warehouse. As with every craft room it is an on going problem keeping that in sort of order but I think I am getting better. This weeks special class is decorating the pen pots. There is a couple of place left you so email me if you want to come along on Thutsday morning to decorate your own pen pot or make a special gift.

silver box

As you may know since moving into the studio I have been learning more about silver clay, the way this works great with my stamps is amazing. I have made a piece this month all by myself without having to ask "miss". I am really proud of this multi task piece so I decided to a make a box to present it. I tied the silver to a card as if to give it as a gift. Hope you like it.
Of course I used the same stamp to decorate the outside and inside of the box.If you are wondering how the box is made after that, then sign up for our boxes class where you make this box and two others.

making lemonade

They say when life throws you lemons make lemonade. Well I was trying some kiss stamping with acrylic paints and stamping on to canvas, but nothing was going right. So I decided to take a print from the texture plate. This is one of my favorite textures called Thoresby, I like it so much we have it in 3 sizes. I loved the outcome so made book covers. What do you think?

Wednesday, 30 June 2010

I have added a list of classes to the website at last.

Ok so the rest of the website needs more work, but as you probably know I do everything here from make the teas to drawing most of the stamp designs and writing the website so sometimes I do get a bit behind.

The good news is this weather is making days up at the studio just beautiful so if you fancy some me time get yourself booked in to one of the classes. Club Class on Tuesday morning will suit those of you who have mastered the basics. If you need a bit more intensive help look at the other classes.
Don't forget if you leave a comment on my blog you can up grade your prize in the free Prize Draw for the open studios day on Sunday 18th July.

Well it is nearly 8am to off to get the kettle on for the silver clay gang for one last time.

Thursday, 24 June 2010

I am back

Not really sure where I have been, the theory was I taking time to work on designs etc but the time has flown.
My diary starts getting busy again so not sure when I will eventually catch up. I have sorted out a list of workshops for the studio in July including the long awaited return of regular classes. They will be Tuesday mornings through July and then will be reviewed. I hope to get the list published on the website today so check it out. IF you want to be kept informed about dates etc email me at

The next open day at the studios when all the artists will be there is Sunday 18th July 10am to 4pm. A FREE prize draw to win time with the artists of your choice. If you are a blog reader you can change your prize to a half day workshop for you and up to 3 friends with me. Just leave a comment to qualify.

This weekend Saturday 26th June I will be at the Craft Room in Lincoln leading a week long guest invasion. So if you are in the area, pop in and say hello.
I will be there again on Saturday 3rd July with lots of Oak House Studio stock in the both the Lincoln and Newark shop in between. Karen will have some Oak House Studio stock at Stamp Magic so check that out too.

Well better go pack ready for Saturday
See you there.

busy week

I have had a busy week with no finished craft projects, I been working on jewellery with Tracy and have lots planned for this next week.
I have taken time out with Martin to go watch GB men play volleyball in Sheffield. I have seen quite a few international matches over the years (I even been a linesman at over 34) but this one was pretty special. GB were in a tight corner, they needed to win in straight sets and with at least 16 points between the teams. Setter and team captain Ben Pipes had organised tickets for his old team mates and we turned out in force.
We met up for a meal first and by the time we got to the match we were ready to make as much noise as possible. It was hard to believe Ben had come so far from the young 12 year old we first met at YPI in Hull. He motivated his team and played brilliantly. He took time to speak to his family and his old team before having to dash off to speak to the press. We were all so proud of Ben and the whole team who came to do a job, won the game with points to spare, very tense, but so up lifting well done.

Starting the inspiration

Yesterday I made a last trip to Peterborough for a while this week an on the way home kick started my design time by visiting afew plces on the way home. Martin and I stopped at the Hub in Sleaford which is a National Centre for Craft and Design. We saw two exhibitions that had me reaching for paper when I got back to the van. I wish I had taken my camera.

We had planned some time to talk and eat on our trip, we usually manage to find n excellent afternoon tea or something similar. One favourite spot is Quaintways in Folkingham. A really old fashioned and friendly spot with large tea pots and slices of cake. It always makes me expect the famous five or some other Enid Blyton character to come in and order lashing of ginger beer.
I think there has been a slight price increase on this menu but it is still an excellent price and great quality. e have yet to try their rost lunches but it is on my list!
Folkingham came along too early in our trip yesterday so we gave it a pass, expecting to find something equally lovely in Louth or somewhere but we didn't. We did find several old fashioned sweet shops, so indulged in buying pineapple chunks for Martin, catherine wheels for Dotty and fondent cream roses for me
if you know that part of the country and you can suggest somewhere for afternoon tea let me know.

big sigh

Well that is all over for a while, we still have a busy couple of days dealing with the follow up. Then I am going to be getting on with new designs.
in the mean time here are more pem pots.
Just a reminder that I have a quiet open house at the studio on Sunday 9th 2pm to 4pm.
I am working on the workshop programme next week so any requests email me now

sample making

I can't believe how hard it hs been to stuck into making samples this time round. To be fair I have been involved in changes to the background of the business, changes you will probably never see but hopefully I will be able to get on with the important stuff so good for all of us. But here is a photo from the hints ad tips sheets I have been working on to go into the recycled stuff for Create and Craft.

Technology and the teenager

Ok I like technology but I find it harder and harder to keep up with the progress, is it an age thing? The consquence is I now rely on others (my son) to move things forward for me often due to a lack of time, however it always seems to take more time some where further down the line as I then don't understand the principles and when thinsg go wrong I have no idea how to put them right.!! all this is a long wonded way of saying sorry I didn't get to post for so long yet again. I am working toward a create and craft show on Wednesday 5th May at 12 noon, which having a bank holiday just before it seems to be hearder work than I was expecting.
Hope you will all be watching out for me, After that I am taking a few weeks to get in touch with all this new technology and finish off some new designs, so no TV for at least 8 weeks maybe longer.

going mobile!

Ok folks at last I am have my old laptop working with the internet. I know that might not sound that exciting to you, but it is a big mile stone for me. It should mean I get to blog a bit more often and have less excuses. Oh dear no presure then.
I am sat trying to watch the marvelous Claire Curd on Ideal World and keep an eye on Robert on Create and Craft.
Claire is a very talented crafter and I think her work is great, unfortunately she works for DoCrafts and I am not that keen on them as a company. I love Claires cards, she does really neat matts and comes up with lots of interesting ideas.
so I am off to watch more. Expect a second post today

Spring has sprung

As we drove south to Alexandra Palace on Friday it was pleasing to seeing that the hedges were full of blossom as the blackthorns were turning white. Near the hotel trees were full of cherry blossom. Back home three days later and the blackthorn is still biding it's time and the cherry is looking thoughtful. The magnolias just about to burst forth with some flowers openning. I am feeling inspired.

This was our first show for about 5 months and I have come home with a long list of jobs to get on with to be fair it is probably just a longer version of the one I came home with when we drove back from Ally Pally in September!! where does the time go?
Got the chance to catch with a few Oak House Studio fans including Elaine who came to demo for me on Saturday and brought me some samples ready for e next TV show. Keep an eye on her blog as she tends to post pictures on there before she sends me the samples.

Life is getting so busy I am looking for more help with samples. IF you would like to help email me at

Thursday, 8 April 2010

all change

Well you knew it was too good to be true! I just get dates published and then ... all change.
I am not now doing Create and Craft on 14th April. It has been moved to early May. that makes the other April courses easier for me BUT it means the scrapbooking Festival will have to be reduced or moved. I only discovered this change today and I am in the midst of packing for Alexandra Palace so I am leaving it until Monday to re write the programme for May.
I will let you all know as soon as possible about all the new dates.
If you are going to Alexandra Palace please stop by and say hello. We have packed as much stamping card as Ideal World have left us with, but if you want any, it is best to stop by the stand and get Martin to save it for you rather than carry it around all day. We set off very early in the morning so unless you email before 8pm on Thursday we won't get the message.


Tuesday, 6 April 2010


It was cold and wet but the place was bursting at the seams at 10am just as we openned. It was amazing to talk to some many new and interested people. Thank you all for turning out and waiting to see me.
Places for the Introduction to Stamping course filled quickly. Although I do have a couple of spaces left for Saturday 24th April. I guess it was that people realised what a great deal this is. I am offering the starter kit as part of this course. RRRP for this kit is £25 pounds, price for this this class including the kit is £20 what a bargin. I do ask that you are genuinely new to stamping though.
To help soften the blow to all those other stampers out there who have supported me through out the last year at Cold Harbour Farm, I have a special offer for the whole of May. If you attend or have attended a PAID for workshop at the new studio, you can claim 10% discount on anything you buy during May.
It will be one year since we openned at Bishop Burton and so I will have lots of offers on workshops and products through out May to celebrate, including an OPEN HOUSE on Sunday 9th May 2pm to 4pm when you can claim your discount. There is a nice course in the morning if you want to make the day of it! Oh and Birthday Cake too!

I will post all the details as soon as I can. If you want to be kept informed email the update list at

Open Day Details

We have an OPEN DAY at Calf House Studios on Easter MOnday 5h April. 10am to 4pm
The plan is for all the studios to be open for you to look round and ask questions. I am considering opening the top half of my stable door and letting you peer in from outside ; )
You see at this precise moment in my timetable there 10 large boxes almost ready for dispatch takeing up a huge chunk of my space. With those in there it is hard to get to the rest of what needs putting away. Don't worry going to pop to the studios with Martin today and remove said boxes and then Martin and I are going to deliver them tomorrow. That does mean I only have Easter Sunday to make the place presentable for Monday. It will be better than it is but please don't expect anything wonderful this time round. I really hope to everything looking brilliant for the scrapbooking festival in May. Are you coming? Book a class, a crop or come to the Open House. I have my scrapbooking events early May as this is when America and Austrailia have their National Scrapbooking Days usually around thier Mothers Day (not sure why or if that is done deliberately). But also it is my Birthday and this time it will be one year since I moved into the studio.

TV date

In all my blogging about dates I forgot to tell you guys that I have another TV date. Create and Craft Channel 36 on Tuesday 30th March at 11am. Two new products this show and neither is a stamp!!, but I know you won't be disaappointed. We are bringing you stamping card in A5 at last. I have dithered about this one for awhile, but we put A5 in the Stamping Kit and I found myself using it a lot, just that bit easier. Don't worry we still have A4 if that is what you like.
and the other new product, something else you can stamp on....a pen holder. You may have seen a black and white Clematis sample I have on a pen pot. This product is so amazing I am still finding uses for it. You don't even have to be a stamper to appreciate it. You don't have to decoarte it, but being crafters you are bound to alter it in some way.
It is 100% recycled so thats good too! a great gift for yourself or someone else. It is coming in a pack of two so you can do both. I will try and get some images up before next week.
I want to know what you would do with yours. comments please

quick note before I dash off again

Hi everyone, sorry not many posts but hopefully it will all be worth it in the long run. The NEC was amazing and as ever full of surprises, we didn't have long enough to talk to anyone properly and we only saw Tim and Mario in the distance, sigh! but on the stand we did see/talk to/hug all of the following Suze Weinberg, Leanndra French, Lynn Robinson Hunter, Glenda Waterworth,Princess Pinflair, Barbara Gray, Lesley and Annette, Michelle Saxon, Gwen Fletcher, Kim Sutton, Nancy Watts,..... I could go on and sorry if I missed your name off the list.
Elaine and I did each day and had some lovely compliments about our designs and display. For Monday and Tuesday we were also joined by the very talented Tracey Spurgin who is a studio mate of mine and who I will be doing some projects with this year, including a trip to the Artisan show in October.
We had some new products samples on the stand of things we are due to release over the coming months and they got a great reception, all that is going to take some time to get to market.
The big project this week is two new releases for Create and Craft, no one else has the stamps so I have had to do all the samples. The show is on tomorrow morning at 10am and they have called it Get Stamping. Hope you will all be watching and cheering me on.

stop the world

I have made myself dizzy with running around far too fast in the last 2 weeks, yesterday I felt so ill I didn't think I would make the NEC at all. Fortunately there are some amazing people in this world, they include my family, the receptionist at the doctors, Andy at the stamp makers and the rest of the gang down there, Sharon who cuts my hair and Julie who makes my whole world stop for an hour or two with the most amazing massage I have ever had. So thanks to Julie I am off to bed and if you stopped by to seeing some amazing craft project with Oak House Studio then go check out where Elaine, who has been bailing me out of trouble since I was 6 has posted some art work for this weekend

Get Stamping

I have been busy working on projects to include in a "get stamping" kit we will be launching on Create and Craft at the end of the month. The idea has been to put together a very basic set that means you can make a few cards with just the things in the box plus a pair of scissors a glue stick and maybe a pencil and ruler. If you have the added bonus of foam pads then hey you could go mad!
I have designed the projects in the box so that could be made with nothing more than said scissors and a glue stick. The idea being it could be a first step to stamping or a stamping set for those temporarily deprived of their stash, so they get a quick fix. Ahh now your laughing but when we sold something like this before I remember it being bought my Jan who is an avid stamper with loads of kit but all her equipment had gone into store for a couple of months whilst they moved house and suddenly Christmas was coming and she still hadn't got her gear back.
The box contains stamps, flowers ( OK so I designed it bound to be flowers!) words and as Elaine would say twiddly bits. Eleven stamps in all. 10 sheets of card in 4 pastel colours, 10 sheets of white stamping card. 5 card blanks and 5 envelopes, a block and two ink pads one of which in a duo pad with purple an green in three colours of ink, so like they say when they sell CDs. 11 stamps, 5 colours of card ( inc white) and 3 ink colours, that is a whopping 165 different sheets of paper you could design with just one ink colour and one stamp on each, add combinations of stamps and colours as they say WOW!#
Just think how many different cards could be made just by stamping flat papers and cutting or tearing them to fill an A6 card.
It is amazing isn't it. As I said before everything in the projects has been made with just scissors and a glue stick, it has been hard not to reach for glitter or aquash. I did give in and use a paintbrush and water as I thought that was fair and the card could be completed without doing that.
Anyway this is just one card, watch out for the rest. Oh and if you like the flowers they will be available in slightly different format without the rest of it.
Elaine has been busy making an ATC with these stamps checkout her blog

and now the fun starts

OK meetings over just a few more pricing bits to sort and we should have some lovely new products very soon
I have been asked about intermediate stamping courses, well Saturday's class fits that bill. With only a small number in the workshop is is very possible to give everyone pretty close attention and move people on when they are ready. I have two places left £5 each
Hope to have some images pretty soon. So keep checking back

Coming together

Been at the studio but hardly any time to stamp spent most of my time sorting out packaging and making space for people to sit down on Monday.
Martin came to bring me some products from the warehouse and stayed for a cup of tea. It was great having him there and as usual he made a lot of sense so again things lurch forward


Friday, 5 February 2010

Workshops are nearly all booked up. We do have a couple of spaces for next Saturday morning. I hope to have more dates soon.

We have new products coming out very soon (I really hope they will all come together). So that is taking my time.

Monday morning I have two meetings. Pentel and another supplier I am very excited this space for more news.

If you haven't replied to appeal to tell me if you are a stamper or not please get that in to me, even the press want to know what you say....more excitement

home making

just read on twitter Kirsty Allsop working on next Homemade Home. Just think what you could do with a stamp or two. You could easily theme a room quite cheaply. As you all know (don't you?) you can stamp on glass, paper, fabrics tiles. ceramics. A stamp is just a way of transfering a design.
Just think what you could do in a bathroom. Pick a nice motif say the shells. you could stamp these on a mirror edge, glasses for candles, on to ribbon to quickly trim towels, into Fimo to decorate picture frames or UTEE as well as images on a wall. How many other rooms could you decorate?
If we could get Kirtsy stamping her Christmas cards they would be a lot nicer and much more accessible. I do hope this next series is more accessible and features things most people could do. And I truely hope that Kisty gets to actually complete stuff herself more rather than leaving it to the "professionals" I am sure she would love it!!
Come on Kirsty visit us at Oak House Studio, it would be fun

To stamp or not to stamp?

Well the answer is of course TO STAMP. I hope I don't bore the world (well my world anyway) with this topic but I am going to be bashing on about it for the next three weeks at least.
You see in my head there are two types of people, those who stamp and those who don't stamp YET!

I love stamping so much it is hard for me to understand why some people don't do it. I can see that I won't convert everyone BUT I do feel there are too many people who are missing out on this great pleasure in life. Over the next 12 months I am making my mission to covert as many people as possible. First I need to understand more about it?

Have these people not had the opportunity, have they never considered it? do they think they don't have enough time? worse stll have they tried and not enjoyed it?

so I want to hear from YOU email me NOW

Are you a stamper? if so why do you love it?
Are you not a stamper? why do you think that is?
Can you use stamper or not a stamper for you subject line and send your reply now to
as a little encouragement ( as if??) there will be prizes for both groups to be drawn on 23rd Febrauary 2010.

Bob the Dog

Had a few questions about Bob, caught him curled up on the settee the other day so grabbed this photo. Note the lack of eye contact!
Bobby is miniature silver poodle, he is now nearly 9 years old, last August he was hit by a car whilst on one his escapes, He fractured his pelvis and was pretty badly cut up. We have great Vets and insurance or he wouldn't be here. He walks kind of funny now and lacks strength in his back legs but he seems happy and still escapes when ever he feels the urge.
We carry him upstairs and lift him down and up smalls steps but then very now and then he gets up the stairs by himself and on to the settee even.
Today he escaped from the garden and went for his walk by himself as I got caught up and he thought he would save me the time!!

my weekend

Here we all are, usually I have this place to myself but on Saturday John Denton came up to take some photos, Sharon came to help with samples and Martin came to start packing the create and craft order. We had a great time, John took some nice photos. but I don't recognise myself these days, I look vaguely familiar but the image in my head is about 10 years younger and several pounds lighter!anyway this picture from the back is fairly safe!!


I have had several attempts at up loads some images for you and every time my computer just crashes so I have decided it is not meant to be
Frantically trying to pull everything together for the show on Saturday, this is the point when everything starts to fall apart, I had my hair cut last week and it hasn't gone right since, I have papercuts on about 7 different fingers from folding boxes to pack the inks in (oh yes inks in this next show). I forgot to comfirm the order with the stamp manaufacturer so they won't be here till Friday! All been a mad dash it is only 7 days since I said I would do the show and in that time I have produced 9 stamp images some totally new, some based on old favourites. It has been a bit hectic.

Anyway I have been busy with the samples, Barbra, Sharon and Elisa have all popped in to help and tomorrow Denese is due to help too. I is always nice to see how someone else uses the stamps Sharon did some lovely backgrounds and really got in to some fantastic repeat stamping.
Martin has been brilliant and took over labeling inks today when my papercut fingers couldn't grip anything and has promised to do some more tomorrow (must be love!)
I know everything will come together by Saturday but I am trying really hard to have some time out on Friday as I have the opportunity to spend and hour or so with Branding Guru Carl Hopkins, but that means a couple of hours on a train too so a few hours out of my working day, should be worth it though

Silver Clay

Anyone who has been beeen inspired by the silver clay on Create and Craft over the last few weeks , can I recommend to check out Craftworx. Tracey is a fabulous teacher and very creative. If you want to learn for yourself or get some fabualous jewellery made Tracey is the first place to start. She has a studio at Calf House and it is her I have to thank for finding my studio
Of course your Oak House Studio stamps will work brilliantly with the clay

Oriental Theme

As many of you will know now is the time all good stamp designers are working on new designs to launch at the NEC in Febuary. My designs are coming along nicely thanks for asking, however they all need a little more work to get them ready for selling. So for this first TV show in January we have revisited our oriental stamps, put them into collections and added a few new pieces. If you already have our dragons and love them you will be pleased to see them both available in a new size, this time they are the same size!
We are also taking Pigment Ink pads in lovely bright colours plus a black. some nice little sets on this show plus good old Aquash. The price on Aquash has gone up but we have managed to hold the price for one more show, so if you haven't bought yours yet now is the time.


Tuesday, 19 January 2010

and the winner is

I have sponsored Card Maker of the Year for the past two years with Simply Cards and Papercraft. The winner for 2009 was Diane Ingram who sent me a wonderful Thank You card. see the photo here!

I have invited Diane to spend the day with me at my studio. She has accepted the invitation and now all we need is some nice weather so she can get here from Norwich
Would you like to come and spend some time at the studio and play with all the products old and new
We have several open days planned for this year and we are looking to offer some more special days which include a nice lunch at the local pub email me for deatils of classes and special events
