Scrumptious Cupcake

Here is this weeks Create & Take using the new Cupcake Stamp from Imaginisce and Nellies square cutters. Even with all the snow today we had our regular ladies turning up for a mince pie and cuppa tea.
Don't forget we have a Sale at the shop tomorrow. We are keeping our fingers crossed that the snow won't come again tonight and we can get to work ok!

Hot Pants!

I love this little hedgehog stamp, he is so cute isn't he? He is called Hot Pants and is from the new Penny Black Valentine range. I have used him for this weeks Create & Take. I have coloured him in with some watercolour paints and used the Hero Art Mini Message Stamp Set for the sentiment.

Cricut Demo Day with Tracy

We had a lovely day yesterday with Tracy Demonstrating the new Cricut Gypsy. One of the features of the Gypsy is that it allows you to weld your words and shapes together so Tracy has made these 3 door name plaques for my boys, arent they great!

We now have in stock the embossing folder kits from Provocraft. This allows you to make your own embossing folders which you then put through the Cuttlebug. This Merry Christmas was taken from the Tags, Bags & Boxes cartrige.

Scrapbook Club

Tonight I had to cover the scrapbook class which was a bit last minute so this is a joint effort by Sue and I today using the BoBunny Delilah papers & stamp range. This range lends itself very well to autumnal photo's. We also used the Pumpkin Nesties to make a little secret message and done lots of inking and stamping and a bit of Glimmer Mist too. Everyone enjoyed the class and brought some beautiful autumn photos. Thanks to all the ladies who made me feel at ease on my first ever scrapbook lesson!

Create & Take

Here is this weeks Create and Take cards. I have used the Autumn Leaves Flower Trio Stamp which is only 99p with Wheat Versamagic ink or Beige Brilliance ink pad. I couldn't resist using the new Prima Coffee Country Elegant Flowers on some of these cards. Unfortunately they haven't scanned too well so they do look a bit feint!
