Suzi Q has come up with another lovely card for this weeks Create & Take. She has used the gorgeous new stamp set from Kaisercraft - Bonjour range, new Maja Kitchen papers & the MS Cherish border punch.
Today being a Wednesday in the school holidays means that I (Caz) get a chance to play with the kids and make a little create and take especially for the younger ones. We decorated these cute little paper bags with the Mimi Halloween set, all the kids (and Mums and Grandmas) did a great job!
A simple design but I have to remember this is just little ones making this and also its a create and take and not a class. Of course at the end of it they had to visit me at the till where "trick or treat" was chanted and maybe I found them something nice :)
I've stamped a card for fun today and thought I would share here on the works blog as it is a Penny Black stamp that I got from work. Its a very lovely Mo Manning Design from Penny Black and you can find it under the Penny Black section on the website.
I am loving all the new designers that Penny Black has on board and I cant
wait to see what else Mo has for us Penny Black fans.
This Wednesday I will be making bunting with the ladies on my class. We still have a few places so why not come along. You'll be making a very traditional red and green Christmas banner. Lots of die cutting, glitter and a bit of stamping too.
Our new Paper Room & Classroom are now officially open at Crafts U Love! Our Class List is now available and classes are booking up quick so call soon to reserve your space. We are kicking off with Caz (The Bunting Queen!) and she will be making a beautiful Christmas Bunting so be sure not to miss this one. We are pround to annouce Jacqui Dennis who will be running some Copic Colour classes over the next couple of months. Caz & Jacqui make some amazing projects so click the links to see their blogs.
We would also like to welcome Karen Maccoy who has joined the Crafts U Love team. She is working Saturdays in the shop with Caz and Karen is a huge Cricut fan and anything Tim Holtzy. She will be taking a few classes next year so look out for those!
Inspired to use my Mimi by Sues lovely Mimi card yesterday. The sparkle on her hat is created using "shaved ice". All items of course available from the Crafts U Love shop.
I have used the lovely Cherish Martha Stewart punch on both sides. This comes in a set with the edge and corner punch.
Righto, off to work now, pop along and see us. We have some selected Penny Black stamps IN STORE ONLY for half price!! (Does NOT include this Mimi though) Oh and talking Mimi, I will be demonstrating these on 24th October along with other stamps too :)
Caz created this very cute little red robin card for Create & Take this week. She used the new Nellie Robin stamp that will be on the website over the weekend. (Lots of new products going on this weekend so keep your eyes peeled) and the new Bo Bunny Blitzen stripe paper with matching Bazzill.
This past Friday Caz had a go at making the Create and Take card and here is what she came up with. She used the Woodware Patchwork Dove stamp. This is a clear single stamp and great value for money. They will be put onto the website very shortly.
Also used : Woodware Holly punch, Star Punch and Square Punch
We made this cute Little bundle of joy card using the Penny Black Baby Hammock Stamp & Gingham Pink papers. We paper pieced the hammock and decoupaged the daises, teddy bear & butterfly. The 'Little Bundle of Joy' stamp is from Imaginisce and only 99p
