Festive Arrivals & Workshops

Good Morning Crafters

I don't want to scare you but did you know it's only 19 weeks until Christmas! So it's no wonder the festive crafting goodies have started to appear in the shop and we think we have all tastes covered. Phill Martin has brought us traditional Christian greetings stamps and beautiful script sentiment dies.

If decoupage is your craft then I'm sure you will find these new releases by Craft Creations Ltd irrestible.  There are twelve new decoupage sheets to choose from but at only 89p each its worth going for the the lot to make sure you have just the right card for family and friends.  To really make your decoupage designs pop you can also buy the box cards to frame them.   Keep an eye on the blog as I will be sharing a complete one of these this week, and take a look at the workshop below where Chris will be demonstrating them.

Creative Expressions have a lovely festive range of Papercuts Craft Dies, one of which is the cute Santa bauble. 

This Week's Workshop - 19 Aug
This Saturday there are follow-on classes for the Distress Oxide inks.  You will be able to create two projects and Chris will have a lot of hints and tips to pass on.  To book your place call 01284 701101 but hurry as places are very limited.  I also have it on good authority that the new distress oxide colours will be available! 

September Workshops/Demos
2 Sept
Chris will be demonstrating the box card (see above) from Craft Creations Ltd. 

9 Sept 
If you need a little inspiration for your wrapping and packing this Christmas then this workshop is one for your diary.  Rushanne will show you how to make your own gift packaging and bags for Christmas.

Editor's Pick
As you have seen me use it so often in my inspiration posts this week's pick is my favourite stamp by Paperartsy.  It lends it's self so well to not only cardmaking but also mixed media.  It's unique, fun and a wee bit quirky too. 

Until tomorrow Keep on Crafting!
