Caz's Class

This is the gorgeous candle and bag set that Caz made on her class with us last week. These beautiful stamps are the Hero Arts Owl Christmas and the papers are from the Imaginisce Snowny Jo Collection. These candles are great for presents and we will be running a kids class next half term, so look out for that one (great presents for teachers!)

Christmas Dove

Carrying on with the Christmas theme for Create & Take we have used the Cuttlebug Dove Cut & Emboss die on this card. We have these lovely pom poms from Bazzill which we just had to use! They come in 6 different colours and work out £1.40 per yard. We have also highlighted the embossed part of the dove & vine leaf with Icicle stickles.

Nephews Birthday

I made this card for my nephews 20th Birthday. I find it so hard to make mens cards don't you? I found this stamp which I bought about 10 years ago and I thought it still looks quite good. I also used the Basic Grey 6" x 6" Archaic paper pad.

Thank you Hubby!

I thought I would share this card with you. This is the first card my partner, Geoff has made for me (well its the first card he has EVER made!) He would normally go out any buy one for our anniversary but he forgot so had to sneak in my craft room and make this one, which I think is a really good effort!

Name our Pup

Do you like our new puppy? Caz has one which looks so cute called Milo so I thought we would get one! I can't think of a name for him, my kids have come up with Crafty what do you think?

Blog Change

Bear with us a the moment we are working on a new blog background and header. It may keep changing over the weekend while we work out the best one.

Dainty Flowers

Trying to work with 2 kids today from home just don't happen. I wish I was working at the shop instead of my partner or even better just making cards all day. Nevermind I did manage to squeeze in a few cards last night for our Create & Take today using the new Rachelle Anne Miller Stamps which I hope you like. I am trying to work out how to put the Project Sheets on the blog so they can be downloaded. I will let you know when I have worked it out.

Thank You

We received this lovely card from our 'Hull ladies' who visited our shop on Friday and Saturday. They wanted to thank Tracy, Heidi and Kim who looked after them while they were with us and also one of our loyal customers Carol Dawson who also made their visit an enjoyable one!

Fridays Create & Take

This is the card we made on Friday for our Create & Take. Its a very simple card using the Best of Friends Stamp from Ladybug. We simply coloured it in using watercolour pencils and mounted on Bazzill, Bo Bunny Papers and added a few flowers. Unfortunately my colouring is not great ( I need some lessons from Kim & Caz!) but you get the idea

Kim's Class

Here are a couple of cards Kim has made and done in her morning class on Saturday. I think these stamps are so pretty and Kim makes them look extra gorgeous when she decoupages them. I will put the cowboy cards on tomorrow. If you like the burgundy paper you will have to wait until they come back into stock as all the ladies snapped up this paper and there is none left! We had some lovely ladies in for the classes on Saturday from Hull and would just like to say Hi to Sue, Fiona & Jo and look forward to seeing you again at the end of August.


We would just like to Congratulate Kate on winning the Free Prize Draw from our Shop Birthday. Kate won a hamper or craft goodies worth over £30, so well done Kate!
