Today is my First post on
"What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday"

This week in between teaching, I've been
playing with the new papers from Echo Park - yummy!
So far 1 and a half cards and one Scrapbook Layout done.
The SB layout is for a surprise coming this Friday in Blogland!
Check back here then if you're interested in
Inspiration - let's face it "who isn't" 

So for those who don't know WOYWW,
hop on over to Julias' Blog for more details.
This looks like it could be fun & it also may push me
into working a bit more tidily than usual!

Have fun!

Studios for rent!

Would you love your own studio haven?
Would you like the opportunity to teach in a
Workshop that seats approx. 20 people?

Here's the deal!
We have the opportunity to rent the unit next door.
It has 6 Studios of varying sizes & a Huge Workshop room!
The rent covers gas/elec, wifi & 2 days a month in
which you can utilise the workshop room for selling & teaching classes.

Maybe you have a buddy who would like to share?
You will also have the possibility of renting the
worshopshop room on more occasions. The theory is, the profit
you make on teaching could pay for your studio rent - cool huh?!
If you'd just like a studio & teaching isn't your bag, that's fine too!

If you're interested give us a call or pop in anytime,
we have a set of keys to show you around :)

Fancy Pants Wishful Thinking!

3 quick layouts from me today :)

Meh, these photos aren't the best -
over exposure and dreadful angles but hey-
Good Memories!

This last one has no embellishments at all!
Just cut & lifted the banner ;)


came in last week & Julie wasted no time in
gracing it with her talent.

A Couple of Quickies!

As you can see I'm still playing with the leftovers from the
June Mini Kit (just can't throw it away can you!)
The Owl is a stamp from the Art Stamps Swirly Birds set,
the greeting from the lovely Sentiment Stamps by Autumn Leaves,
finished off with a few random flowers &
three Pickleberry Posies which have been inked with love!
Tools used are a Woodware Scallop Punch & the
Fiskars Scallop edge punch :)

This card uses more Art Stamps, this time the Feminine Set 1,
and the Autumn Leaves Sentiment Set as above. The background
The cake & Sentiments is stamped with Versafine Black
and coloured with Promarkers then cut out with a Spellbinders die.
The May Arts ribbon is available in store only by the metre.

This card also uses the Feminine Set 1 by Art Stamps.
The background images stamped with Pumice Stone
& the Chandelier, sentiment & Background layers coloured
with Chipped Sapphire Distress Inks. The chandelier was cut
with Spellbinders then Pearl stones attached.
The background paper is MLS Love Birds
The ribbon is available in store only by the metre.

Next Monday & Friday we're running a Sun, Sea & Sand
Journal workshop. A Brilliant way to pre prepare for your
Summer Holiday whether at home or abroad!
The workshop costs just £10 and as usual, you are
welcome to stay for the day and make use of our
extensive stamp & die collection :)

Have a Sunny Weekend!

Happy 1st of June!

Shame the Weather doesn't reflect the Date :(
Never mind, here's a few things to hopefully
Brighten your Day and month!

First of all, this Months "20% Off" offer
goes to our favourites, Letraset Promarkers!
All pens and pen sets are included :)

Secondly, we have an Amazing Mini Kit!
We say Mini, but the amount of cards &
layout produced, it might be better
described as MEGA! It's £6.50 and
here are the projects we made :)

Have a great Day!
