I haven't posted for a couple days because I have been making cards for a magazine. I was up until 4.30am Thursday night finishing off my cards so I could send them Friday. After working all day on Friday in the shop I conked out last night watching Britians Got Talent. Anyway here is Friday's Create and Take which I hope you like. We have combined felt, velvet & flocked papers and Revolution & 2" x 2" Flower Dies and Cookie Cutter Tag Dies.

Ladybug Now In!

They have finally arrived! The poor postman didn't know what had hit him when he was bringing the box into the shop. It is the first time we have seen him smile when Tracy & Sue rushed to greet him! Everyone that had Ladybug on pre-order have been shipped today and hopefully will have them in time for the Bank Hols. Anyone who hasn't ordered them yet you need to get in fast as a couple have already sold out. Don't worry though we have more on order.

KT has been created!

Here is another addition to our Cricut Dolls. This is Katie who works in despatch and makes sure all your parcels go out as quickly as possible. As you can see Katie loves pink & black and anything sparkley!

Tracy's Paper Doll People

I have meaning to put these paper doll people of the website for a while now. Tracy made them with the Cricut Expression. I think she has done a great job and thanks Tracy for making me a Princess! She is still working on Katie & herself so we will put them on soon.

This is Super Sue! She runs the office and answer all the calls & emails aswell as printing all your orders and generally a bit of everything!

Tracy has called me Princess Paula, thanks Trace! Probably because I am very girly and always buy in the girly products and love making girly cards. Maybe its because I have 3 boys (well 4 inlcuding Geoff my husband)

This is King Geoff. We have called him King because he is the Bossman (well I let him think he is)

You may remember Heidi who used work for us. She has been off work for a few months as she fell over on holiday and cracked her head open. This had serious after effects but now we are pleased to announce that she is fighting fit again and working with us on Saturdays.

Wendy's Samples

Here are few samples that Wendy made using Fiesta & Chopsticks.

Quickutz Spring Gift!

Wow what a busy day we have had at the shop on National Scrapbooking Day and the release of the Quickutz Spring Gift Sets! Wendy demonstrated the new fonts and lots of you made the Make & Takes and participated in Quickutz Chance to Win a Holiday. Everyone collected a passport at the shop and had to collect 4 QK stamps for their chance to enter the draw and win 1 of 4 holidays around the world! This is one of the reasons we stock QK as there is no other company that would run a competition like this and produce such wonderful products complete with cute & crazy packaging!
