Good morning Sue,
I am in crafting heaven, these are just so beautiful. how do you improve on already perfect??!! Loving the French border.
Congratulations Eileen!!

I have a cunning plan to spend more time crafting whilst being at work!! I have been toying with the idea of a crafting enrichment programme for some of our students starting in September. As be part of a small team providing crafting activities for one afternoon a week. The pilot will be for 1 hour to see how it is received by the students. Off now to sort goodies from my stash to donate the Crafternoon Club and make room for my new collection of dies etc LOL!!
Its a grey start but I hope the sun peeks out later to brighten everyone's day.

Good morning Sue and everyone. I was looking at the French collection on JS website last night and they are even more gorgeous when you see them "made up". Love the entire new collection - just can't decide which to go for first.
Congratulations to Eileen on being the Weds winner.
Have a lovely weekend. Sue xxx

Very oo la la. Loved the Austrian but think I'm going to prefer the French. The only problem is which to order first!
You have been a very busy bee, thank you.

Morning Sue. Wow this is another stunning card. I think this is my favourite collection. I when on to JS web site yesterday to see if she had your new dies in and there they all were and how stunning they all are you should be very proud of yourself as i think these dies are going to be a bigger winner than your last collection.

Rosalind McLellan said...

Hello Sue,

Loved yesterday's dies. Then I saw today's!!!!

Absolutely gorgeous.


Ecco of Sheffield said...

morning Sue
Now I really do feel so very spoilt. A French collection and I'm taking this just to be for me. (I don't want to upset anyone and of course I'll share!!)
This is so so so beautiful and I thought yesterday's collection was just so lacey but Sue you've outdone yourself this time.
I can see my saved up pennies disappearing so fast that I'll be fit enough for the!!
Cameeli - I wish I'd thought of that when I was working - what a fantastic idea.
Norah - Oh I'm so envious of you meeting Sue on this special weekend.Hope you see some of her new dies. I won't say have a good time because I can feel your excitement all the way over here.
Thank you for the request to 'him upstairs'. It's at least dry this morning so something worked. The Vineyards are in a mess what with torrential rain and hailstorms. Don't think this year's harvest is going to be a good one. I'm back in the UK on the 1st Sept.
I agree Norah about the friends on here - I could not believe I had found such a fantastic set of people who very quickly became very firm friends.
Hope everyone has a really good weekend and enjoy all that you do.

Take care and I'll see you tomorrow.
Janet x

sonja_w said...

Stunning card, love the colours and the border die is tres chic as the French would day. Xx

carol quinn said...

how do you think up all these ideas for your cards?

this card looks so elegant.
thanks carol

cr@fty said...

Good morning Sue
I thought you couldn't improve on perfection but you certainly have. I've seen all the other dies and what a treet everyone is going to have over the next couple of days. The hardest thing for me is I'm away so won't be there for the delivery and I know they are going to be sold out 😥 I'm going home on Tuesday so hopefully there will be stock left (although I very much doubt it). Today's card is very pretty and the dies are AMAZING!
Cameeli what a brilliant idea I wish I'd thought if that lol.
Gail hope your okay.
Congratulations Eileen

Congratulations to Eileen.

Hello Sue, O M Goodness, these are seriously Gorgeous. I love the first set of dies and have most of them just one or two still waiting for to come back into stock.
However, these dies are unbelievably soft lacy and fabulous . Oh boy I will need to sit on my hands till Ally Pally.
X Ros
Oh I forgot yes please I would love to win a set of these new dies.

Anne Crawford said...

Well I've fallen in love with this French collection and just had to go to JS and order the border set immediately as I'm sure it will sell out, so mine is now on order and I can relax and do my comment .
Today's card is so very pretty, wish I could see it in more detail, could the top part be a new folder? I think you have the most wonderful imagination Sue which you so kindly share with us, and we do all appreciate that! Definitely another big success for you with second range of dies, they are magnificent !
Congratulations to Eileen on winning the Wednesday card!
Hope Sue, Julie and all the girls at the Glasgow demo day have a magical day to remember, I'm sure you'll have lots of fun and learn loads( wish I was going) boo hoo.
Special hugs to Gail , Pam and Robbie and everyone in pain or feeling low xo

Pat S Witney said...

Hi. Sue
Another stunning card today as usual. How on earth do you do it Sue?. We all think you have reached the summit with your dies and then you bring out another stunning set. You are simply amazing. Loving both the dies in this set, and would be honoured to win knee.
Hugs to Pam and Robbie.
Hope your hills are alive today Norah, and you are keeping hubby on his toes now that he is on a roll.
Hope your keeping well Steph
What a good idea Cameeli, I didn't do crafting until I retired, but would have tried it if I could. We di have dancing but that's not quite so restful is it.
Congratulations to Eileen on winning a card, you lucky girl.

June said...

Oh forgot to say that Joanna Sheen has them in stock as does the website. x

iReneM said...

Oh my word!! so pretty.
So like butterfly wings - exquisite :)


PharmacyMichele said...

Oh my-stunning card! Really like the border die in this set.


Desiree P said...

My favourite design far! Taking my brownies out today for an It's A Knockout event as part of the Big Brownie Birthday (Brownies have been going for a 100 years this year). So will have to wait for the other die reveals today - something to look forward to! By the way, if any of you want to volunteer for Girlguiding, even just doing a one-off craft session with your nearest group, visit Sorry for the plug Sue but it would be great for crafters to share their skills with the younger generation and get them away from mobiles, computers, x-box and the like!

ElizabethS said...

Hi Sue, I can see why you call them the French collection. They look really frilly and lacey to me. Just wonderful.

Morning Sue, perfection again, just love these dies as well. I think the postal system might grind to a halt with all the little packages it will be delivering. You have surpassed yourself. Enjoy your time north of the boarder.

Love Rosemarie xx

A note to Cameeli of Richmond. I love your idea and if you need any more craft items please get in touch. I have had a major clear out in my craft room and have a lot of very good, some hardly used, craft items that I was going to try and sell but would be more than willing to donate to a good cause. If you are in Richmond Surrey you are not too far from me in Godalming.

Tres bon mon petit pois! That's about the limit of my French but these dies are lovely. The first one reminds me of a spiders web.

Jez said...

These are so beautiful and detailed. Hope I'm lucky enough to win one!!

Sandra said...

Bonjour Sue!
These dies are just so 'Magnifique'! Haha
That's pretty much the sum of my French!
The French background looks like a Stain Glass Window with it's beautiful pattern radiating outwards, stunning, I can't wait to see it made into a card! The border , tag and corner set are beautiful too, I can see thousands of uses there!
Congratulations once again Sue! You are amazing!
Cameeli, sounds like a great idea, you can get to work and craft at sometime! Just joking, I find it very therapeutic so I am sure children will will feel the same benefits!
Nana Tina, wishing you a speedy recovery for your back, I know what pain you are in and I totally sympathise with you, gentle hugs!
Janet, vineyard ....! You kept that quiet! Lol , what grapes do you grow? How amazing! You just be mad travelling back to uk that weekend! We have done it for last 8 years, journeying home from holiday in Spain, the traffic and ferry port are horrendous! We once queued for 5 hours for a ferry we had turned up a our early for it was chaos, so we did Euro Tunnel last year, which was easier but still busy, had to go back to ferry this year though! But we are coming home on 27august to hopefully miss the rush!
Norah I hope you have the best day ever crafting with Sue! Big Hugs!
Congrats to Eileen!
Hugs to everyone else

What a beautiful card and I'm loving the border die.Like most people it's deciding which set to buy first.

alimecca said...

Hi Sue,
This French collection is truly beautiful. I especially love the border set and I also think the background stamp looks like a beautiful spider's web. I think I might just have to order this one ( the border).
Gail pleased yesterday went as well as it could, it must have been so difficult for you all but especially your poor mum - give her a special hug from me. Pam hope you are getting better , Norah hope your hills have no clouds having a rest, Steph hope you are ok. Cameeli, great idea and the students will love it - I made Christmas cards with my Year 10 group to sell and they really got into it. We did rubber stamping and heat embossing, iris folding and tea bag folding. We made £100 at the school Xmas Fair one year - they were so proud! Well must go - love and hugs to all, Alison xxx

Hi Sue, the dies just get better and better, the corner die on this blog reminds me of a butterfly wing. The stamps that match the dies are brilliant, just had to order a few of them ( my version of few that is). Can't wait for them to arrive. Hope you and Julia have a great day.

oh my Sue - I didn't think you were going to be able to top the Austrian collection but this is amazing - beautiful dies xx

Norah McPhee said...

Good morning Sue and fellow Wilsonettes,
A stunning card with such a beautiful border. I love the French border set and the beautiful background, it so reminds me of a spiders web but i think this must be a chic French spider as it is so fancy and lacy, it's definitely a posh one.
Well done Eileen, what a stunning card you have won, enjoy it flower when you receive it.
Cameeli, i think that is a brilliant idea and you just never know which students are going to surprise you the most with their talent.
Oh Pam, i can hardly wait until Tuesday, i am so excited. I don't think children waiting for Santa to come could be more excited than me.
Janet(Ecco), what a disaster for the wine region if it has knocked out its crop of grapes. I know that they need water and sun, but there is such a thing as too much water.Although i don't drink(too daft to start with)i know that it will effect a lot of people.We have the rain today which is normal as it the Alva Games today and it ALWAYS rains without a word of a fib,always so we were expecting it. This is the day that dafties go racing up the hills(aye, when it's wet and slippy because they don't have an ounce of sense at times) to the top and back down, nuts. I have lived in Clackmannanshire for almost 40years and never been to the games once. I normally go to the Bridge of Allan Highland Games as they are much bigger and they have the pipe bands from all over as well as the highland dancing and tossing the caber, throwing the hammer etc.
Anyway bored you all enough now about my favourite time of the year so i will say bye the now. Sorry your back is giving you gip Nanna Tina as i know just how bad it can be and how much it floors me, so i am sending you cybermail gentle hugs.

My first day back on the blog in ages and look what treasures I've found!
I've been madly busy for the last couple of weeks and haven't had time or space in my head for crafting. What a treat to come back and find Sue's new dies being launched. Such a gorgeous card and the background is to die for!

Off to take my mum out to lunch for her 80th birthday so will catch up on the other posts this evening.
It's lovely to be back.

Heather said...

Yet more wonderful dies and a lovely card to show them off. Thanks Sue.

Happy Saturday Sue and all Wilsonettes. Delightful, delicate, stunningly beautifully breath taking. Such a pretty shade of blue.
Im loving sharing all these extra cards with all our Wilsonettes, its making the days wizz by with all the clock watching waiting to see the next astounding card and die collection. I dont usually share my exact deep feelings , but if only I wasn't on the employment scrap heap I could treat myself to more of the 1st collection, and start collecting this adorable new collection ! So although I live from one showcase to another and to the next, Im doing myself no favour's lol if only wishes did come true ! Cameeli, I second your comment re these dies and the 1st set, goodness knows what delights we are in for in the future, how can anything be any better ?
Have fun in Scotland Sue, enjoy meeting your loyal ladies.
Congrats to Wednesday winner and good luck to all with the draw.

Gail C - take care hon my thoughts are with you and mom.
Tina - really hope you find comfort and less pain soon.
To all our Wilsonettes that dont feel so good today Im sending love and hugs, hoping life is kinder to you soon.
Love you.
Lancashire Steph xx

Fantastic collections Sue, it will be a nightmare to decide which ones not to get - if any haha!

Rose in Chester said...

Hi Sue,
Thought I'd left my comment at 0800 when I first saw that stunner of a card. Truly beautiful and elegant, intricate without being OTT. Background, border corner and tag are just divine. Have given up trying to decide which ones are my favourites, I want them all.

Hi Sue,
Love this collection as well - I'm seeing spiders webs and butterfly wings with iced snow on them. Stunning.

barbiepinkfairy said...

Love the lacy effect looks gorgeous and a bit cobwebby! Is that a word?

Gail glad you survived the day. You will get back to craft and it will provide a valuable distraction!

Lancashire Steph you aren't on a scrap heap. Value all you offer to others especially support to others on this site. Which craft shop do you use locally? Have tried to go to one in farnworth but have always gone on a closed day! Think this may be the one you refer to.

Love to all! Xxx

Jeanie said...

Hugs Alice xx

lilygee said...

Good Morning Sue and All

Wishing you all a lovely weekend and hope you all get the chance to be crafty. I thought the Austrian Collection would be a fav with me until I saw all the other dies - when you see them they ALL become must haves. The background die is particularly gorgeous but then again they all are! Hope you enjoy your trip to Scotland Sue.

Hi Sue. WOW !! Your cards and dies just keep getting even more beautiful !! The French Collection background and the border, corner, tag die sets are just stunning !! I just can't believe how stunningly beautiful everything is !! I was going to say that all of today's die sets are a "must have", but then everything you have shown us so far is a "must have". The card is stunning too !! This is definitely a new background embossing folder too !! Just gorgeous Sue, and so cute !! What a stunning new collection you have made Sue.

These are just beautiful - I think my favourite so far! The border and corner dies are absolutely gorgeous as you have demonstrated in your fab card. I have my name on the French Collection for sure.

Ivonka said...

I LOVE that background! Will you be doing tutorials on these sample cards? It looks like you've used Iced Snow over the sentiment - but if so how did you get the words to look so black and crisp? Love it anyhow! Yx

Myra P said...

Hi Sue
Another beauty! I am in what is called a quandary I think!
Today's card is lovely and what dinky little bows! That's the thing you see - I spied - like others little or not so little Finishing Touches!
I really loved the Innsbruck one so fell for that I'm afraid and a Finishing Touch I spotted on one of yesterday's cards! They are all lovely - but I have used your previous sets constantly . Nothing has remained in its packet! It must be the inspiration as well! Thank you - enjoy the Granite City! x
Gail - good to see your post today. Glad things went as well as possible . Love to your Mum and yourself especially. x. One day at a time!
Norah - sorry about the rain! Never mind - it will be a glorious day on Monday whatever the weather for you! Safe travel and have a great day! X
Janet - oh dear , you'll have to raid the cellar! So pleased its stopped raining! x
Alison Couchman - Happy 80th Birthday to your Mum. Have a lovely day! x
Love to all, Myra

Beryl Treble said...

Hi Sue, a beautiful card. Love the new dies. Congratulations to Eileen.

Maureen Killen said...

Good morning Sue,
and all the ladies.
Well Sue, you've done it again. These dies are gorgeous and the card is beautiful. Your brain must be a minefield of ideas!!
Cameeli - I go into my granddaughters' school to do craft with classes ranging from 5 to 11 and they LOVE it. For the youngest it's obviously things like colouring and drawing, sewing hand puppets etc. But as they get older we make all sorts and I've even taken my embossing powder and heat gun (with stamps and pads of course) and they've heat embossed when making cards. They love that because it's like magic.
My daughter threw in a surprise last night (at the school barbeque) when she said that she had told the school where she works that I'd do a craft class for any of the mums who'd like to go. Of course none of this is paid work, and I supply most of the equipment on a tiny pension. BUT I do enjoy it!!
Sorry Cameeli, this post started just to say I think it's a great idea of yours!!
Pam, hope you and Robbie are faring well.
Norah - have a great time with Sue and Julia, I love your blog. I feel I'm almost there with you.
Lancashire Steph - you are not on any scrapheap. Believe me in my time I've been made redundant, lost all confidence and only now, 34 years later, realise that I knew, and could do, much more than I thought. If only I had realised it then.
Well, that's me for now, off my soapbox and girding my loins for the day ahead.
Oh, congrats to Eileen.
Love to all, have a great day xx

Julies Crafty Creations said...

WOW! Amazing! You've done it again Sue, I was very lucky and managed to pick up 15 of your die sets from my local craft shop yesterday, can't wait to use them, they all look amazing!
Can't wait to see the rest of your cards using these collections
Hugs Julie x

Robin said...

A great set of dies. I like the "channel" idea on this blue card.

Maryann Laursen said...

Oh my goodness this is such a gorgeous set too. The border, corner and tagset here are absolutely outstanding.

Janice Wallace said...

It's beautiful, cobwebby, lacy....perfect. I don't get much crafting time in the summer (hotel is busy with tourists) but I am making time to check these out each day. Been looking at Creative Expressions website at all the wonderful finished cards.
