A Great Weekend!

So, Jane & myself hauled ourselves up to
Birmingham early hours of Saturday morning
to attend the Ranger workshop sponsored by
Personal Impressions at the NEC.

We created a fabby Ikea frame choc full of
Ranger products and techniques taught by
Suze Weinberg, Claudine Hellmuth &
Tim Holtz.

Had to chuckle when I spotted myself on a
photo on Tims Blog, you'd never know it was
me but I assure you I'm the speck on the far right
at the side of the room!

Here's the project we made, this is Tim's example
(photo taken from Suze's Blog)

My copy is in the shop on the Ranger table :)
I just have to finish, no let me be honest - redo
one element then I will upload a photo, LOL!

On Sunday we visited the trade show and
had a good root around!

Orders were placed and the first consignment
arrived today!
Gorrrrrgeous flowers made from paper and fabrics.
Here's one of them...

They're all online here and are currently
taking center stage in the shop, it looks
like a dolls house florist shop! So cute :)

Look out for DIY Prima style layouts and cards,
me thinks we're gonna be busy creating!

Also ordered were cute ickle buttons like these....

and some of these guys

and oodles more, keep checking the Coming Soon &
New Products pages on the site.
Take care for now :)

Flower Power Clipboard & Card Workshop

Flower Power Clipboard & Card
Just a quick plug for this amazing workshop
which is in two weeks time on Saturday
27th February with the talented Louise Connell!
It's a bit of a last minute one but we thought it
would be perfect for Mothers Day
(if you could bring yourself to give it away of course!)

This £15 workshop will run from 10am till noon,
where you will be using The Artistic Stamper
Flower stamps, Jo Sonjas paints and the
gorgeous Bo Bunny papers.
It doesn't stop there, bring along some lunch
and you can then stay for the afternoon and
make use of our extensive stamp &
die cutting collection.

Louise creates cards to die for and has set
up a successful business where she sells
her creations on the Misi site. She is also
produces fantastic scrapbook layouts
which have been published in mags :)
