I'm a CUP Designer

Hi all, The hedgehogs are still keeping me pretty busy here. We have taken in over 30 this year so that hasn't left much time for me to keep up with my blogging. Though I do try. I still keep up with some crafting. Alot of which now goes to charities, especially the hedgehog ones. But a few others too. :) I have been making loads of quick cards and some fun different designs from CUP (Crafts U Print) I love making them as they all look so professional when you get them done. One of the designers there, Sharon Poore, has some really fun designs and I just love her Easel cards. We have become really good friends over the past few months and she has been saying I should become a designer, so...... I did. LOL I took the plunge and now I am making some designs for CUP. You can see them here..... My CUP home page

And if you would like to see some of the cards I have made they can be seen in the Gallery here

Below is my two card kits I have made so far. One is an easel card and the other is a scalloped pocket card. I hope you all will stop by and have a look at the designs I am making and also check out some of the lovely designs the others make too. Who knows you may well become as addicted as I am to CUP. :)

April 16th, 2011

I have gone Mad!!! For CUP that is.  I just love that website and visit it most every day at least once if not more. There is so much going on there with Bingo, Bob Treasure hunt, card making and the forum and contests. Speaking of which. I won a card challenge on there for the Charity Card Challenge.  The theme was spring.

I used one of Sharon Poore's designs for this card along with a new die that made the scalloped edges to the card. I think it turned out quite springy. :) 

They have another competition going on for Father's day and this is the card I have entered into the competition.

This too is another of Sharon's designs. I printed off a few extra bits and made a bit of a fish and bobber bunting.
I have made a new friend there at CUP now too...... Sharon. We have been bouncing ideas around for different types of cards and things. I asked her if she could do some seed packets in one of my favourite designs that she does. And she did. :) Ever since our friendship has been growing. I really enjoy making the cards from her designs and she is but one on the CUP site. If you get the chance you really should go and check their site out if you like doing decoupage cards. There are also other types of cards and crafts there now too.  CUP also allow you to make a little bit back on some of the sheets you buy. If you get a gold star sheet and are a registered card maker and post a photo up in the allowed time. You could get some compensation every time the sheet sells. The most I have made in a few months time is a few pounds here and there. It allows me to get a few free designs each month. :) Also you can join in on the Affiliate program and earn  per clicks. I too have join on this so if you would click on the links I would appreciate it. :) It is only 2p per click, but it all helps. And if you order from one of my links then I get a percentage from that order. So it is more than just your ordinary crafting site.
