A Day in the Shop Sat 23rd Feb

It was a nice day at the shop today. I met Corrine & her mum (you may know Corrine she used to work for Creative Pastimes). It was nice to see lots of familar faces and one of our loyal customers, Sarah who saved the day and brought the tea bags in!
Tracy and I had a little play with the new Corset Die from Provo so I thought I would share the card with you. You can also use this corset as a little envelope and put a message inside. We do have them in stock so if you are interested click here

Perfect Pearls are Back!!!

We have just received a selection of the new Perfect Pearls so I thought I would have a little play. Here I have used the Hero Arts Sketch Flower Stamp and embossed clear on black card. I have then used the Perfect Pearls with water and painted in the petals. I have decoupaged the flowers and slightly curled then. The back ground paper is from the Daisy Bucket Playlist Range, Now Playing. Here is the link for the stamp and the Perfect Pearls will be on the website within the next few days

Valentine Changito!

Here is a simple Valentine card idea using Changiot Loco Monkey and the Watercolour Paint Wheel. We think he is very cute and would also be great for kids cards.

Doing Disney Cuttlebug Style

Used Mickey 37-1731
Used Nimo 37-1716
Used Celebrations 37-1740
I thought you might like to see the cards I made whilst demonstrating on Saturday. I have fallen in love with the new Disney Cuttlebug shapes (you can find them here ), they are so much fun to use. The ones I have used come with a cutting die and an embossing die, you run it through to cut and then run it through again in the folder to create the embossed effect. The Mickey was just done on black bazzill card and rubbed over with a white chalk ink, as you can see it is really effective.

Helens Class & Create & Take Cards

Thought you would like to see these cards that Helen completed in her evening class on Thursday evening. They were made using the new hero arts stamps the top one is K4952 Sketchbook Flowers stamp and the bottom card is made by using the LP107 Flourish borders stamp set. As usual the sample cards are in store so you can always pop along and have a look in real to speak.

Helen is also holding another class on Wednesday morning, she still has a few places available so why not give us a call and book, we would love to see you.

As I was off yesterday you didn't get to see our create and take! It was designed by Jackie and was a real hit with the customers.

If you would like a project sheet on how to create this card then feel free to email us, or leave a comment and I will email one over.
