Exciting Week Ahead!

Monday will see a huge parcel of new stash arrive in the shop! Mostly Prima including Almanac, En Francais & Songbird, then there's the new Graphic 45 Olde Curiosity Shoppe & Little Darlings and the rest of the MME Be Amazing & Be Happy. Don't you just love all the names!

Tuesday is Scrapbook Design Workshop with Jane, always one to look forward to! There's 2 spaces left if you can make it! Click here to book.

Wednesday is a day of rest, off to the cinema me thinks!

Thursday & Friday we'll be prepping samples & uploading new Workshops

Saturday brings a Discovery Demo Day! We haven't hosted one for a while and we have so many new products and ideas, we thought it would be a great day to share them with you. As usual it's free, pop in anytime between 10am - 4pm, we'll have a few offers on the day too!
Here's a few things we can't wait to show you!

Well, now I've written & shared our list of things to do for the week I'll be off to Janes to help collect a lush new piece of furniture for the shop (an old Lloyds Bank desk!)

Have a lovely week and thanks for dropping by :)

Inspired by....

Jane hosted an evening crop on Tuesday & had this gorgeous piece knocked up in a few hours (as you do!) She was inspired by an article featured in the latest issue of Somerset Apprentice. Isn't it gorgeous?

Also in this week is the latest Take Ten mag too!
This issue is packed with fabulous cards that you can create in around 10 minutes, genius!

There's a couple of spaces left for this Saturday Mornings Mini Ranger Canvas Workshop with Jennie. Inspired by the workshop we attended on Saturday hosted by Tim Holtz :)
You'll get to play with the new Distress Markers too!

Thanks for stopping by, See you soon ;)

Masked & Inked Tags

Today I had a play with some Gorgeous Kaisercraft Sweet Nothings paper, K and Co Grand Adhesions (currently 25% off!) and a Crafters Workshop mask designed by Julie Fei Fan Balzer - Punchinella. Mix in some Tim Holtz stamps, distress inks et voila!

On the tag above I swiped a little gesso, through the mask, heat dried it then went over with a little Crushed Olive distress ink to add a little texture.

A more subtle look with Bundled Sage

This last one with Vintage Photo.

Don't stop at gesso and distress inks, masks work great with chalk inks, paints, texture pastes, sprays. The list is endless!

Thanks for dropping by, have a great weekend :)

I managed a page for my scrapbook this week! Amazing!
All be it a seriously quick one, but hey :)

Most of these you can see here in the Wedding/Valentines section

Love is in the Air!

Hi Everyone!
Ok so mostly this last week my air has been filled with flu bugs from our child, coughing & spluttering from the other half & Blimmin' snow!

So it's time to lighten the mood & get ready for Valentines!
Have you made a card yet?
I did! (inserts smug grin) & since the other half doesn't check my blog so often I think I'm safe sharing it here!
Relatively quick to do (especially when I didn't add an insert) - all my lovely card making buddies who know me will be horrified but not surprised ;)

So it's all things Tim Holtz:
Sizzix Movers & Shapers Mini Love Struck & Dec Strip Tickets
Stampers Anonymous From the Heart and Odds & Ends
Distress Inks - assorted colours
Yummy Cluny Natural lace by Wrights

Let's Stamp workshop in the morning, can't wait! Will post pics tomorrow night :)
Take care x
