Look What's Landed On The Website....

Hi Everyone

Yesterday saw the start of a very busy week for me...
Orders to do, Create & Craft shows on Thursday and Friday, To Do List to do for Carol lol, Projects to complete and so on... so I'm cracking on with my 'to do' list this morning!

I have finally, just added the new Letraset Flexmarkers to the website.. whoo hoo! 
You know I love them, you've seen my colouring in on my Facebook pages (when I should have been working lol) 
These pens are different to the Pro Markers, the inks are still alcohol based so they work together with the Pro Markers, but these Flexmarkers are more translucent, softer shades which help us to blend and achieve more realistic colour toning... I urge you to try them.... you'll be hooked, like me!
Here is a quick linky to them on the website.

I  have also added the stunning new 'On The Edge' Embossed Card Blanks by Craftwork Cards... this is my second delivery.... the first lot sold out in two days in the shop! So grab them whilst they are in... with some beautiful Christmas designs, these will make your Christmas Cards special and stand out on the shelf!
Here's a quick linky to them on the website.

Anyhoo, that's all for now!

I better get back to my to do list... at least I can tick one job off ;o)

Happy Crafting!

Love, as always

Pro-marker Tutorial Workshops...

Hi Everyone

I know, I bet you can't believe that I have posted twice in the same night! lol

Anyhoo, as suggested by Cath, one of my Tuesday class ladies (Thanks Cath), I am having three special Pro-marker Tutorial Workshops next weekend.

There is a maximum of 10 spaces for each day and the times are as follows.

Friday 9th September - 1 til 4pm

Saturday 10th September - 2 til 5pm (This is now full so no spaces left)

Sunday 1th September - 10 til 1pm

I will be showing you how to make the most of your pro-markers!..
How to blend, how to shade, how to shadow, how to do those all important skin tones, how to fade and how to create seemless and infinite colour combinations..!

The cost is £20 for the three hours, you will need to bring your own pro-markers and I will provide all the images and cardstcock etc

If you wish to book a place, best be quick and let me know as soon as possible.

If you are also struggling with any particular subject when using your pro-markers, please also drop me an email, text or message before hand and I will try and incorporate that into the workshop for you :o)

Happy Crafting!

Love, as always


Hi Everyone

Just a quick note to let you all know that, as of this week, I am now closed on Sundays...
Whoo Hoo, this means I am now having an 'actual' day off...
I know, it's unheard of and completely selfish lol

As most of you will know by now, I have now become one of Create and Crafts' Craft Ambassadors, which means that you will probably see more of me on air.

So, in order for me to be fresh as a daisy for you all, at the shop and on air, I need to have a work/life balance and hopefully this will help me achieve that.

I will still be having my Minithons, Craftathons and other special classes (more on that in another post I will write in a minute) on Sundays, so these are not affected.

I just didn't want you all arriving at the shop on a Sunday and not finding me there (besides, you know me well enough to know that I will be sat at home crafting anyway lol)

There are no other changes to my opening hours apart from this change on a Sunday.

See You Soon

Happy Crafting!

Love, as always
