Hiya peeps

Hoping I find you all well.

Well then guys - what have you been up to. Today I have been making many preparations for the move and open day. There promises to be some fantastic things going on - all of which I am very excited.

Have you seen the new cuttlebug storage - its there is a great little binder bag and the pages are available as extras so that you can customise it dependant on the folders and dies that you have and purchase in future.

Also another mention for the Bulk Buys section - we are adding products to this all the time to offer you the best prices we can - some fantastic bargains on some great items.

I think I mentioned this in an earlier post but if there are any products that you want to see that haven't heard us mention - drop us a line - we are in the throws of ordering new lines so let us know - you never know we may already have it on order but if we know you want it then we can give you some idea of when we will have it.

Well as I say hope your all well

Take care

Well look what came out of a box in the shop today............................. got it - New Keepsake boards. They are great - we will endeavour to get some samples sorted for you to look at soon but just wanted to show it to you. The rest of the Keepsake boards and the tools can be found by clicking here.

Whats happened to the weather? Not very impressive is it!!!! Although it does mean that it means I can't just lay about in the sunshine - so some scrapping should get done. Today we have been adding products to the Bulk buy section I talked about the other day - can I also just mention the Oscrap chipboard in there is great to work with its these that I used on this page.............

.........the star on this page isn't in this set however. These have been coloured with the gold Brilliance Ink which is available in both standard and dew drop size pads.

Hope your all keeping well.

Take care

Hey you guys

I'm liking this weather!!! Anywayhow the devil are we? Well I had a fabulous day - had a couple of reps in ordered some new things and we have "me mum and Bev" been eyeing up some new bits and pieces for after the move. All I can say is I got sooooooooo excited when I saw some'll understand when you see them!!!

Also been carrying on with my Jolly Nation - I knew there was a lot to get through and am really enjoying it - shhhhh don't tell mum though - just kidding she knows I love it.

Ok so I thought I would show you another of the pages I have created - its fairly basic but has what I think is a great effect so here goes........

The lettering is by Maya Road the New York Lowercase I have inked it with the Brilliance Dew drops. The patterend paper is by Sandylion from the Tropical Paradise Range - I picked the one that suited my picture the most (thats me and Alex incase you were wondering) The flowers are out of the Daisy punch by Woodware with a small jewel sticker in the centre.

Well can you believe it I had a day off yesterday where I didn't go to the shop ( only because I was waiting in for a workman) but they had a delivery without me!!! And in that delivery was some great things - including the Cuttlebug Storage Binder - I dont even have a cuttlebug of my own and I want one (got a bit of a thing for bags) all joking aside its a cracking little storage case with the inserts available dependant on what dies/templates you have. Also the Disney sets for the cuttlebug - very nice indeed.

Well I think thats about me for another night - I shall get some more pictures to you soon.

Grungy Monday

Hi everyone

Can you imagine my excitement when a box full of Grungeboard turned up today. Theres allsorts its fantastic heres a look at a page I completed with one of my pieces

The blue Arrow is out of the harlequin elements - as I say brilliant and with them being textured they are good to colour - I coloured this one with the Colorbox Chalk Eyes.

So then now you all know we are on the move and I am getting more excited by the day. Now as you can imagine we will be getting some fantastic new products for the launch and the open day. Bearing that in mind we want to give you the customer the opportunity to get your hands on some of our great stock at lower prices so to take advantage of this take a look at the Bulk Buy section - All of these links I have added are available from the home page too - including the clearance section also. I was having a good sort out down there today and Bev was marching round grabbing things to add to the Bulk buy section. There are some fab bits and pieces there so grab it while its there.

Well guys hope your all well - still haven't seen any of your work yet so don't be shy send us some pictures.

Take care

We're moving!!

Well well it all becoming clear now - we are on the move.

For those of you who haven't seen it there is a page on the website regarding our move click here to take a look.

Aside from all that things are still busy as ever - yesterday was fantastic - great to see some new faces again and like always the regulars. Yesterday's project was making a fantastic mini book - my signature Pink and Black - made out of several squares and linked together - as soon as its finished I will take a pic and let you have a look - its a project that will soon be available as a workshop - its great fun and once you get going makes a lot more sense - lots of fun with co-ordinating papers and embellishments.

Today has been our monthly crop I managed 2 pages which I am really pleased with. Again will sort my pics out and let you have a look. I used the crate paper Zoom range and the Around the Block horsey papers. Both of these ranges are double sided and that said give ultimate versatility. A lot of people (I am also guilty of this occasionally) tend not to look on the other side of papers - what I mean is we see the side on top and if we don't like it move on to look at something else - when in fact the other side can be so different - like I say take a good look its a nice surprise sometimes.

Right then girls n guys its past my bedtime.

Wow at the Weather.

Wowee isn't this weather fabulous!

Sorry its been a while but we have been so busy I haven't even had time to blog - hoping your all well and had a fantastic bank holiday.

OK so today I have been up to a variety of things - more of the Jolly Nation decoupage papers to be cut out and put together. They are so cute as I think I have mentioned before - we are putting together the Sample boards for the open day in July. Its going to be nice for you guys if you can see them done and also for our newer and new customers to see them completed - gives us the opportunity to show you in a clear and concise manner.

Then a little delivery turned up - and OH MY GOODNESS its the new Dovecraft packs of paper. Now the one range, Hint of Pink, is so cute - its pink and black which as some of you will know are my signature colours then the Fantasy Range which is sumptuous pinks, peaches with scrolls and fairies - its truly magical with the additional benefit of being so affordable. For those of you that would like a peek in case you missed it off the website click here there are also links on that page for the wonderful brads, ribbons and shaker stickers that are also available in this range.

Mum and I have been practising some new paper folding techniques to share with you soon that can be used as a technique to create cute little mini books ........... watch this space.

Again hope your all well

Take care

Sunny-ish Saturday

Hiya everyone

So what are we all working on then - I am currently using the Laura Ashley 2x12 strips on both scrapbook pages and a card - they are ideal for both! I am using both the contemporary and the traditional - just the strips at the moment. The full range that goes with this is exquisite - fabric covered brads and chipboard - all delightful.

As I mentioned last week the open day is currently being planned - we are well underway on what we will be doing although I can't give you any details still - sworn to secrecy you see - I think you will all be more than impressed with it and see some great techniques demonstrated. Just a snippet though - I was earwiggin and heard mum mention that there are going to me Make & Takes going on - she couldn't swear me to secrecy on that - she didn't know I heard it!!! lol

Anyone doing any wedding planning at the moment? We have got a fantastic range of cards in suitable for Save The Date, Invitations, Reply Cards - All the necessaries for your wedding stationary. Some lovely stamps that are themed on the same lines - again in the clear woodware range but some nice wooden stamps too.

Well I hope you all have a lovely weekend
