Create and Take card

This is last weeks Create and Take and this one is for the men. Ideal for a slightly older man with a good sense of humour these Art Impressions stamps are a fabulously fun range of stamps to put a smile on your face.

As well as an Art Impressions stamp we have used some lovely Authentique papers and the Memory Box Trellis die which works great for this card. 

Talking Memory Box we have a massive delivery of new designs due early April, order them now and take advantage of the free postage this weekend.

Friday 8th March - Create and Take

Last weeks create and take was a huge hit (again).  Here is what Suzie Q designed for our customers
this past Friday.

We have used the Crafty Impressions clear stamp set for the stamps
on this card, you can see these designs HERE
This set is called Fashion.

The butterfly is a Martha Stewart punch and the beautiful papers are
Maja 1925.  You can't see the detail in the photo but we have used
various jewels and nailheads to add a bit of bling!

All our create and take cards are on display in our shop in Charlwood near Gatwick.

New Products

New products are arriving all the time and the new Passe-partpot shapes caught our eye as they make some really interesting cards.  You can see some lovely samples of these designs on our website on the Marianne page.  Here are a couple of the pictures.

These cards have all been teamed up with the Don and Daisy range of stamp
and decoupage.  Again these can be view on our website on the Marianne
section.  Here on the card above you can see the Marianne Topiary Tree, which looks gorgeous here.

This card has been made using the dies, Don and Daisy stamps and also the new seasons
stamps.  They made lovely additions to the main stamps to create backgrounds for your designs.

Demonstration Day Saturday 27th April

It will be here before you know it and we've already started planning.  Lots more details will follow but for starters we can announce that Caz will be demonstrating the Marianne Creatable January 2013 release.  This  includes the Owl, Bird and Butterfly.  These dies are fabulous for both card making, memory albums and also felt projects.  We have had lots of lovely felt delivered at Crafts U Love and Caz is itching to make a few felt hangies to brighten her project table.  Along with the Owls and Birds she will be using the branch and flower sets to create scenes and 3d flowers.

Here is one of the lovely samples from Marianne where they have used
the owl with felt and material.

More news on this event will be coming as we confirm it.

Charry's Class - Floral Fantasy

Charry's recent class went down a storm as usual as Charry's cards are always so beautiful.

Charry has used the Marianne Designs "Flowers and Leaves" series of dies and stamps.  You can view and buy the designs HERE - scroll down to the January 2013 release.

Items Used : Leaves and Flowers 1, Two Flowers
dies have been used

Leane Creatif  Frame

I am sure you will agree the cards she created are fab!

Fridays Create and Take

Here is Fridays Create and Take and Suzie Q has outdone herself with this one.  Sometimes our Suzie challenges herself with a stamp or die that is not strictly "her style" and this week but she made a lovely card even though at times it was testing her.

This card was made using :

Prima Fairy Belle Summer Dream cardstock
Prima Divine collection Divine cling stamps 950545
Lilac woven edge organza ribbon inch wide
Prima divine collection no 1 950569 (frame) stamp
Say it with pearls - Purple
Bo Bunny Chiffon Dot cardstock
Watercolour pencils

** Some items are sold in store only, some will be added later

Here is the more in depth version, some weeks (not all) we also provide
an extra special version to show you how easy it is to rev it up a notch and make
and simple card look like a WOW card using more or less the same materials.
