Good Afternoon everyone
Well I have cleaned up, gone shopping, fit in a head massage and condition treatment – only to come home and the house needs cleaning again !!!! Why 1 x Son and 1 x Husband – need I say more.
Its poured down all day – but its been a good day.
Anyone wanting any special orders from Clarity Stamps please give the shop a call 0845 838 0345 as I will be placing an order next week with them. We love Clarity Stamps at Craftrange and have a really good selection in store.
Our wooden section has gone down a storm, you are loving it. Prices are fabulous and the quality is great so all in all its a brilliant section. Placing another order soon so look out for some new items.
We are well under way now with plans for our demonstration evening Thursday 22nd September 2011, 5.30pm till 8pm. We have Nikky Hall from Polkadoodles with us showing us her stamps and cd’s that will be brand new to Craftrange. Clare Rowland – Molly Blooms Stamps designer will be sharing ideas for her brand new Christmas Stamps. And much more.
Hope to see you all there.
I will leave you with a photo from the Christmas collection that we have in stock by Jane Gill.
Hope your having a great day, whatever your doing.
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
