How Unusual!

Standard

Good evening crafters,

How unusual that there are still a few places left on Lindsay Mason’s workshop here at Craftrange.com on Saturday May 9th! Lindsay’s ever popular mixed media full day workshops are crammed full of tips and techniques in a wide range of different media. A light lunch is included in the price of £25.

The coming workshop is a Mixed Media Reverse Canvas, there isn’t an image available yet but here  are some samples of her previous work. They are beautiful, don’t you agree?

If you would like to attend this or any other workshop and can’t get into the store to book please give us a ring on 01282833091, it is on a first come first served basis, ring as soon as you can to avoid disappointment.

Carry on crafting,

More New Arrivals!

Standard

 

Good morning crafters,

Liz and I have been busy over the last few days with deliveries to restock but also new lines too. We love opening the boxes to see what new stock is inside, it is like Christmas morning, but then we have to make a space on the shop floor which at times can be a challenge!

So, “What is new?” I hear you say. We have the Crafters Companion range of Kimono dies, stamps and embossing folders. They are so nice and reasonably priced that customers were buying them as they were being unpacked.kimono We also have Memento Dew Drop Ink Pad Sets with 4 colours in each set and 16 sets to choose from.

Next, we have Brilliance Dew Drop Ink Pad Sets with 4 colours per set and 8 sets to choose from.

Lastly, we have Dew Drop Ink Pad Sets again with 4 colours per set and 8 sets to choose from.

The day of the launch of our new web site is looming so, as ever, if you would like anything posting our or have any questions please ring us on 01282 833091.

New Arrivals

Standard

Good morning crafters,

Yesterday we received a delivery from Katy Sue Designs, along with items we needed for resocking our wide range of silicone moulds there were some exciting new additions. We now have in stock the  Fairy Border , Baby Clothes Washing Line and Baby Teddy Bear silicone moulds which would all lend themselves to card making or jewellery too.

Then, also for cardmaking and scrapbooking, there are three pearl borders, rimmed, beaded and shallow.

What, other than icing, could you crafty people use in them? Why not try the new Hearty Soft air drying clay which is extra pliable and has a feather texture, or Fimo polymer clay, embossing powder, Ice Resin or Mod Podge glue sticks.

Please ring 01282 833091 if you have any queries or would like anything posting out to you. The launch date of our new web site is getting nearer, it will hopefully be the end of April.

Lucky Ladies!

Standard

Good morning crafters,

It was a busy day yesterday at Craftrange, not only was it the Coffee and Craft club but also we had two big deliveries in preparation for Lindsay Mason’s Mixed Media workshop on Saturday.

Oh! it looks like being a very interesting workshop, I am going to have to have a peek at what they are doing. We have got all sorts of goodies, in the Deco Art range, there is a range of fluid acrylic colours but also some Interference paints, Antiquing Cream, crackle paint and Ultra Matte Varnish. This is all making my imagination run riot, I hope that I don’t loose too much sleep tonight thinking about it.

There are going to be a lot of lucky ladies at Craftrange tomorrow. We look forward to seeing you all.

Cog Card Workshop Went Like Clockwork!

Standard

Good morning crafters,

We have had a busy week so far, with being closed three days over the Easter period I think that everyone came in on Tuesday to get their craft fix.

Yesterday we had Linda’s Cog Card Workshop and it was fully booked. As you can see, the ladies got stuck in with brayering their backgrounds using a Speedball Brayer and Splodge Mat. Crafters Companion Textures Embossing folders and  the Textures Basket and Burlap stamp were also used to create the backgrounds. They used the Cut n Boss machine and Spellbinder Sprightly Sprocket dye to produce the cogs. Everyone, as ever, picked up plenty of hints and tips and were thrilled with their results.

Today we have our weekly Coffee and Craft Club, our ladies bring a wide variety of projects with them, I don’t know if they come to craft, chatter or keep Liz and I on our toes. They are good at all three!

If you can’t call into the shop to book on a workshop or make a purchase then please ring us on 01282 833091. Our web site is currently being updated, I have had a sneak preview, it is looking good. Watch this space!

Just to Let You Know . . . . . . . .

Standard

Good evening crafters,

Just to let you know that there are 7 people booked on the Cog Card workshop on Wednesday, with Linda Page. If you would like to come then ring us as soon as you can on Tuesday morning to book your place or you will miss out! cog card I was busy in store this morning making samples (it’s a hard life!), when a customer asked to see the We R Gift Bag Punch Board being demonstrated, I made a bag out of  Ken Olivers Watercolored Memories card  stock.leather look bag 002 My intention at the start of the day, was to make a sample for a cut’n’boss workshop, I thought about decorating a clip board or a box using the Die’sire Create a Card dies but I ended up making this leather look bag. I was halfway through cutting out the flowers when a customer wanted to buy the Sue Wilson Finishing Touches Classic Rose die I was using,  as we had sold out earlier, we had to sell our die before I had finished using it! The project still needs a bit more tweaking  but I think that it is looking good so far.

Our web site is currently being updated, if you would like anything posting out or have any queries please call 01282 833091. We are closed now until 10am Tuesday.
