Good morning crafters,
Yes, we had an eventful day in the shop yesterday with Janet “helping” to get the shop floor organised. Despite her efforts we have completed the major moves and it is just a case of titivating, which we can hopefully do today, bearing in mind it is Topsy Turvey Thursday and I know that there is at least one delivery to get out. So, that’s the first hour taken care of!
Call in and see what we have done, I particularly like the Scrapbook. Cake Decorating and Ribbon sections
It looks like my Demonstration Dilemma will finally be resolved on Saturday! I am hoping to play with paper beads and Frantage and perhaps the Melting Pot. I can’t wait, I hope that you can call in and see what I produce.
The count down to my big adventure has started, six big sleeps and I will be on my way (only three working days). That’s a blessing as I have only packed one thing so far, no panic!
Don’t worry, I am hoping to blog whilst I am away, especially if I find any craft shops or ideas.
Each day I will give you a clue to guess where I am going. Todays clue is:- my passport is already packed.
WILL my demonstration Dilemma finally be resolved?
WHO will win the Blog Candy for Where’s Gilly and the email link.
WILL I be packed in time for my big adventure?
WHERE am I going for my big adventure?

Today I would like to tell you all about the brand new Cuttlebug Machine.
From Provo Craft the Cuttlebug Machine v2! – We have this machine in stock – Available NOW.
This machine is very similar to the older version. It has the same sleek design and works in the same way as the older model, however – it is more durable with its stronger outer casing and metal handle. It has an easy carrying handle making it very portable. The opening is six inches and works well with almost any die and embossing folders.
This weekend Saturday and Sunday 16th / 17th April, Gillian and Liz will be in store demonstrating embossing folders that can be run through die cutting and embossing machines. Sharing hints and tips on how to get the best out of your machines.
Have a good weekend, visit us if you can – in-store coffee shop open Saturday, closed Sundays.
I have the instructions for the beautiful flower card that Jane Gill made for our demonstration night, that you all loved. And just by the side of the flower is one of Jane’s own designs of rubber stamps, it is the bubble butterfly done with shrink plastic.
For the flower on Jane’s card she used three Woodware scallop circle punches, the purple, pink and blue. Here is how Jane made it….
Punch two of each (you will have six circles), edge with contrasting ink pad on both sides. Cut each circle into eighths. Hold point side up in closed tweezers and wrap widest part around tweezers using finger and thumb to curl paper. Do one piece clockwise and the next anti clockwise, repeat on all pieces and keep in size piles!
Punch six daisies (green punch) and stick shapes from each pile around daisy petals. You will now have six shapes with eight petals on each. Place one inside the other beginning with the largest. Finish the middle with three punched shapes from the Woodware swirl using brown or green paper/card. Give each of these shapes severe cup character and stick one inside each other.
If you need any of the punches etc for this project please visit our website www.craftrange.com or give us a call on 01282 833091, if you are unable to find what you need. We have hundreds of items in store that are not on our website.
Untill next time
