Fridays Create and Take

Here is Fridays Create and Take made by me (caz)  I am rather partial to birdie images and as soon as I saw this cute set of Woodware Birds I knew I had to buy them :)

Here I showed the ladies that this set which is sold as Christmas Robins would actually work for any birds.

I have teamed him up with the very lovely Echo Park papers :) And a Woodware Thank You stamp.
Also used two Die-namics dies as well.

Here he has been transformed into Mr Robin and I have used some new Bazzill Patterened Paper
and the Memory Box Frostyville Wreath die too.

Puppy Power

Have you seen the new  Happi dies from Sizzix??  ADORABLE!  Here Caz has knocked up two puppies with her Sizzix machine and these dies and cut them so they are opening like a card.  If anyone wants a picture Tutorial how she did this just leave a message and we'll get Caz on the case.  She's also made a very girlie looking puppy too but that's still a work in progress.

I have a sneaking idea that this weeks kids create and take may include a puppy... Hmmm watch this space.

Kids Create and Takes

We will be running a Create and Take for kids every Wednesday from  10:30am - 1pm  The cost is £3 per child and they will get their own pack to create and a drink.  This is run similarly to our adult create and take in that you are give an instruction sheet and the childs parents or carer helps the child make their creation.  Caz will be on hand to call in for help if you need a little help.

There is no need to book just pop along any time within the hours above.  If however there are a number of you turning up at once it would be great if you would just be able to call in before so we can make sure we have enough packs made for you.

here is a sneaky peek at what your child will be making on Wednesday.

Create and Take Friday 20th

This weeks Create and Take was made by Caz this week.  Caz likes bright, fun and cute and we think this card hits all those marks.

We used the Hero Arts Owl Stamp, Happy Birthday from Woodware, Poppy Stamps banner die and a mixture of Ehco Park papers and Craft Creation papers.

Suzie Q will hopefully be back on form for her creation next week, she was still on holiday mode this week and talked Caz into "helping her".

A Boofle Card

I made this card for my son Harvey using the lovely Boofle stamps.

I LOVE this alphabet and can see it being a firm favourite. Love the stitching look.
Woodware Balloon Punch and some stripy twine.

You can find all the Boofle stuff here
I have since purchased a few more Boofle bits so keep your eyes peeled for more cards.
