BT Nightmare!!!

We are having a bit of a nightmare at our shop/offices. Our BT lines have been down since Saturday so there is no internet at the moment. We are having to intercept all orders & emails from home and then send up to the shop for the girls to deal with. We have diverted the phone so we can now take calls but we are backwards and forwards like yo yo's at the moment. BT have told us that it may be another week so please bear with us.

Anyway in all the mayhem we still have new products arriving nearly every day and we have just received the new Quickutz Priate Releases which are fab! We have lots of co-ordinating pirate papers & embellishments so check out our website

We would like to thank Francoise for demonstrating her new stamp ranges at Crafts U Love on Saturday. We had a good turn out and everyone was very inspired and bought lots of stamps! Here are a few examples.
We made this orential lady in her class using the new Summer Cottage Collection Papers from Daisy Bucket & colouring with Tombo Pens to make a watercolour effect. Don't you agree she is sooooooooo sweet!

Jolly Nation Evening Class

These are the cards that we made on our Jolly Nation evening class last Wednesday. As usual we had a blast! This one is made using the bunny 3D paper( ) and the new HOTP tags & pockets cards ( ) they are really cute and an excellent alternative to a standard card and envelope.

This is an image of the tag inside, the bunny was on the cutting sheet and I have used the Cuttlebug "Baby Face" ( )alphabet as well as some mini mulberry flowers ( )and a doodlebug sugar coated brad ( ).

This is the other card that we made, it is using the Dinosaur 3D paper and the Daisy Bucket paper, it is the reverse side of Fast Forward ( ), I love this cheeky chappy!

The background was done using the "Mesh" embossing folder and gives a great scaly effect.

I wasn't a true convert to "Jolly Nation" before this class but I am now adding them to my list of favorite things.

Fridays Create & Take

This is our in store create & take today, I have used the new QQ CC-BDR-005 Border Die and the new Cookie Cutter flower shapes. Although the 12" plate has not yet been released I have cut the vines out on the Cuttlebug machine, admittedly it would be easier with the 12" plate, it wasn't too much of a faff to just feed it through the green bug.

You can find all the new QK products here

I will be back later with the Jolly Nation cards we made on Wednesday.

Helens Hat & Bag Cards

We had such a lovely time on Saturday with Helen making her handbag & hat cards, she has used the new Woodware punches and the new Daisy Bucket papers.

Fridays Create & Take

This is the card that we made at our create and take on Friday, it is using the new Cuttlebug corset die, we think it is really effective and would also look fab with ribbon threaded through.
