Pop of Pink Online Workshop Reveal

We are now in the last few days of sign up for the Pop of Pink online workshop, I adore these products and have literally been waiting to use them since I first laid my glittery little eyeballs on it in the catalogue.

To enable you to see the products in their full glory and for full workshop details you can watch HERE!

Please remember that this is for an online workshop which will take place over the weekend of the 21st April, you can participate at a later date if you wish and you will have the links to the exclusive online videos and tutorials to use at any time.

As a little thank you gift, anyone who signs up to this kit via myself will receive the kit to make the flamingo notebook as a bonus! This can be used as a stand alone notebook or in an A6 Traveler’s Notebook.


Teamie Tuesday – Lift Me Up

For today’s Teamie Tuesday Challenge I gave everyone (on my Stampin’ Up! Team) a card sketch that I had found on Pinterest, we could use anything in our stash, I choose to use the sketch as a base but changed it quite a bit. You can view the process video HERE!

UK Scrap Addicts – Creative Team

At the end of last month I shared a little secret with you guys, that I had been selected to be part of the UK Scrap Addicts Creative Team, being fairly new to scrapbooking (and being on a creative team with so many talented ladies) was both an honour and terrifying at the same time.

Through the course of this month I’ve read the posts and watched the videos go up on the blog from all the other creators and today it is my turn!! Epppp!!!

I have a process video and blog post of a layout that I created, exclusively for the blog and Youtube channel, using this month theme of “Multiple Photos”.

Please pop on over there and say hi, its a big step for me and I’d really appreciate your support.

Here is a sneak peak:

April UglyBugPlans Planner Kit

It feels a bit strange that this is going to be the last ever UglyBug Planner Kit. I am super excited to be growing my business and in the direction which it is heading but these kits have been a massive part of my life for the past year, it is going to feel very strange having an empty diary this time next month lol.

I have filmed an unboxing video which is live now, if you’d like to view the kit contents, obviously if you’d like to keep it a surprise then hold off for a few days!

I’ve made this months a bumper kit as a thank you to all my lovely subscribers!!

There are a few more kits left over on my Etsy store but I won’t be renewing them so once they are sold out they are gone forever!

Mothers Day Card with Oh So Succulent

My favourite colour combination in the catalogue is for sure the “brights” I adore Bermuda bay and think it pretty much goes with most other colours.

After casing a project off of Pinterest (I seem to spend more time looking for projects than I do actually making things, you know that feeling, right?) I came across this Pin and fell in love with the simple but effective look.

I made the card A5 size as I wanted it to be bigger but you could half the materials and make them as small thank you cards etc.

You can view the process video HERE

To make this yourself you will need;

Brights Cardstock

Oh so Succulent stamps



Snail adhesive

Brights Ink pads

VIP Hostess Club

VipVery exciting news here at UglyBug Towers! I have launched a brand new club which is very exclusive and very rewarding.. in fact it is the most reward program I run.. which is why it is called VIP!

What is VIP Hostess Club? It is a group of 6 customers who each agree to spend a minimum of £25 per month on Stampin’ Up! products.. they are products of your choosing from the current catalogues (and any new catalogue that is released in the time frame). It will run for 6 months with each of you taking a turn at being the hostess and receiving the hostess benefits that month! You can still take advantage of any promotion that SU! may be running at the time (sale a bration etc).

Once we have 6 ladies I will enter you all into a secret group on Facebook and will draw, live, all your names and what month you will be the hostess.. in your month you are more than welcome to collect outside orders or place a higher order yourself, to take advantage of the higher hostess rewards you will earn.

At the end of the 6 months everyone will receive a free gift, from myself, and will have first dibs on spaces for the next 6 months!

All orders must be paid for by the 10th of the month, will be ordered on the 10th and sent to you within a week. You can, of course, pay before this date too!

To join, simply fill this form in with “VIP Hostess” in the subject line and I will get back to you as soon as possible.

IMG_3276I had planned on blogging yesterday, I had a series of unfortunate events happen.. including blocking my debit card in a petrol station when I had just filled my car up.. argh, nightmare!

At about the time I sat down to write my “pity party” post I noticed the BBC’s live newsfeed from Westminster… in an instant my worries became silly insignificances and I sat transfixed to the news.. now this blog is not the correct setting to go into my views about what happened so I’m not going to focus on that but it did make me realise how grateful I am to live a “charmed” life and, even though some months we don’t have much left once we’ve paid the bills, the bills are paid and there is food in the cupboard and clothes on our backs, our children are happy and healthy and I’ll be forever thankful for that!

Now how could I leave you guys out?? I am so thankful to everyone of you, you make my little business what it is and every recommendation, review and link you post helps my little brand to grow and be seen, so from the bottom of my heart, Thank You!!

My heart really does go out to everyone affected by yesterday’s (and any other) terrorist attacks, in the country and abroad.
