Check out the Bling!

We have lots of new products in this week at Crafts U Love and here is one of them, Shimmerz. These gorgeous pots of paints are so sparkly and very simple to use. They are already mixed so no faffing around, just use them like paint on non porous surfaces or metal for a ridiculously shimmery effect!

Create & Take

Here is Fridays Create & Take. As you can see I am lovin the All My Minds Eye papers so I have used them again with co-ordinating Bazzill. I have used Hero Art Stamp Set, Great Flourish Messages and the new Scallop Sentiment Punch from Fiskars

Here I have paper pieced the flower and used lots of swaroski crystals for sparkle!

I have used the new Apron Lace punch down the side with lovely orange tulle and my circle is cut from scallop nesties.

Mums Moving

My mum and dad are finally moving house today. They have been house hunting for about 5 years so mum is ver excited that the day is finally here! I made this a card for them using the new Forever Friends stickers which are available very soon at Crafts U Love. I have also used this new paper range we have in the shop called Grow which is absolutely gorgeous. These will also be available next week on line. We have matching Bazzill paper packs and this will be on the web very soon. I have made her a little mini clipboard to put in her craft room for notes and things. Well I am off to help mum unload all her stuff so must dash.

Create & Take

Sorry I have not put any photo's on of our event day but I am having a few problems with my camera, but I will get then on as soon as I can.
Here is today's Create and Take using the new Montage Viva La Flora Collection. These are dead simple and very quick to make. I have used the 1" circle punch on the sentiment and the 1 1/4" scallop circle punch. These photos can be distressed with inks, pens or chalks. There a few in the range which will be on our website in the next few days.
