MAILER FEATURING SOME OF SANDIE'S BEST DESIGNS OVER THE YEARS
SANDIE BURCHELL ELITE DESIGNER
100,000 SALES ON CRAFTSUPRINT.COM
I am really pleased to have reached my goal this year of getting to 100,000 Sales on CUP. It seemed to be a tall order on January 1st when I set the goal for myself to get to Elite Status by the end of this year and I want to thank everyone who purchased my designs to help me achieve this, including the gold star makers whose wonderful skills have helped me to sell them. The most enjoyable part of designing for me is definitely creating new card making concepts and I hope that I have brought you some that you really like this year. I am blessed to have an inventive mind and gain much satisfaction from getting an idea in my head and then applying it to card making and seeing it through to a Kit being sold on CraftsUPrint!
I have always been interested in Crafty things, having started with sketching celebrity portraits at the aged of 9 and going on to dabble in just about every craft there is including Oil Painting, Watercolour Painting, Sewing, Quilting, Furniture Upholstery, Tailoring, Machine & Hand Knitting, Crochet, Creative Embroidery, Bricklaying, Interior Design, Painting & Decorating, Dolls House Design & Desk Top Publishing (just to name a few!) I have also had my own business designing and making Wedding Dresses. There was nothing more rewarding than being at a Wedding, and I remember this one in particular, where the Bride's Dress, 6 Bridesmaids, 2 Page Boys and the Bride's Mother's outfits were all designed and made by me!
It is extremely satisfying now for me to be designing full time for CUP. When I started designing for CUP just 3 years ago I had no idea that it would, 6 months later, be my full time job, I was Shipping & Warehouse Manager at the time for a multi-million dollar company in Southern California. The stress that went along with that job was unbelievable and even though I can't say that designing for CUP is completely stress-free, it is a job that I can say is so rewarding creatively. I have the freedom now to work when I want to work (usually 12-16 hours a day!) but even so that does not put me off from saying it is my 'Dream Job' and I hope it continues for many years to come. I don't want to ever retire and will probably still have a mouse in my hand a computer on my lap until the day I die!!! I feel like I've already tasted a little part of Heaven!
Thank you to Rob for creating this vehicle (CUP) to enable me to do what I love and also thanks to Neil and all the CUP Team who do a marvellous job in making CraftsUPrint the BEST craft download site on the Internet! May I take this opportunity to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Prosperous New Year and I look forward to the next Chapter!

Card Maker Comments: Printed onto smooth white card & followed the easy instructions, built up the layers with foam pads, punched two holes at the sides & top, threaded narrow blue ribbon with fairly lights and bells which I hung around the card, I did the same with the gift tag, a very easy card to cut out but with a stunning result, included in the kit is a matching envelope.

What's Your Best Xmas Present by Gail Collins
Hi everyone. I dont know what your best xmas present was, but mine has to be my netbook I got last year. It is pink and I have used it every day since last xmas. At weekends I use it twice a day. I keep it next to my bed and every night and I cant wait to go to bed and use it in peace and quiet. I can catch up with everything and design and skype my good friends from cup. I can't think of anything I need this year but I think I may be getting a new tablet for designing. I got one two yrs ago and did not know how to use it and when I tried. I did not get on with it but now my friend is going to teach me. I can't get it to work so I think it may be damaged from lying around so much. The photo is our spanial Faith opening her pressie last yr.

Xmas Decorations in Las Vegas by Sandie Burchell
I have just spent a few days in Las Vegas. I love going at this time of year just to see the beautiful Christmas Decorations. The photograph shows the Magical Winter Wonderland Display in the Conservatory at the Bellagio Hotel, where there is a 45-foot Shasta Fir Tree with 13,500 white LED lights and 2,500 Christmas ornaments which stands surrounded by thousands of Poinsettias. The Tree is flanked by 4 over sized Toy Soldiers and Large Red Christmas Baubles, one of which is shown in the photograph which alone stands 8 feet tall to give you an idea of scale.
This CUP sheet is a very pretty decoupage with Pink Flowers & Butterflies.

My House Warming Party by Sarah Edwards
I moved house about a month ago but only recently had a house-warming party. I cooked a yummy selection of Mexican food for my guests, but wanted to do something "a little bit different" for afterwards - so I made a Christmas tree out of cookies! What do you think?

Dickens Festival in Galveston by Maurine Tapscott
I thought that Crafty Bob might be getting homesick after his week in New York City with Margaret Jones, so my sisters, Mom and I took him with us on our Sisters-Weekend-Out jaunt to the Dickens Festival in Galveston, Texas last weekend for a 'taste of home' (and a lot of sunshine). He really enjoyed the parade, costumes, and the street performers (not to mention the pretty ladies, naughty boy). Had to get the coppers after him!

Personalize Your Shopping Cart
Unlike DVD's that you buy in the shops you can personalize your shopping cart.
Why spend £20 on a background DVD when you only want a couple of background sheets.
Now you can mix 'n' match different categories, Step by step sheets, Background Sheets, Vellums, Toppers, Pyramids, Captions you decide.
In other words you choose what you buy - what you buy isn't forced upon you.
And as the word spreads and the website grows we will be adding more and more categories.
Because all your sheets are now on your computer - there is less clutter in your living room.
Print your sheets as and when you need them.
Need a birthday card - no problem - print a birthday sheet.
Need a Wedding Background Sheet - no problem just print one.
School Craft Class - no problem print 30 sheets.
