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
I am so so excited !!~ Distress Stains are now in stock and ………….
Have I played with them………..YeS
Are they ok……… NO they are not just ok they are FAB-U-LOUS, GREAT I’m in my element – supercalafragalisticexpialadoshus
Do we all need them………. YES definitely.
Distress Stains are fluid water-based dyes for papers and other porous surfaces. Use for quick and easy ink coverage for backgrounds and larger areas. Mist with water to lighten color and create mottled effects. Apply layers of stain to achieve more saturated color.
The brushed nylon dabber top has a built-in spring valve. This allows for controlling the release of Distress Stains from the bottle. By pressing the dabber top down onto surface, the valve opens and fluid releases. Lift dabber away from surface to stop fluid flow. Spread Distress Stains by swiping the dabber top lightly as a brush across the surface.
• Acid free, non-toxic
• Fade-resistant dyes
• Dabber top with spring valve control
Hasnt it gone cold!!

Today I was in work all day and had a great day, it was lovely to see so many friendly faces. It was a busy day with Sam Poole holding a workshop in the morning – Sam’s work is fabulous her workshops are very inspirational and she learns you great techniques. In the afternoon we had a new guest tutor Carol Fern teaching techniques on Friendly Plastic – everyone throughly enjoyed themselves and went home with lots of goodies from the shop to make more friendly plastic items. If you were on the class and have had a go at more we would all love to see what you have created, bring them in so we can have a look.
I will add photos of some of the items that were made in the friendly plastic workshop soon. unfortunately I did not get any photos from Sams – may be next time I will.
Just a quickie – I had a play with the brand new Martha Stewart PAOTP (punch all over the page) Punches today, all I can say about them is that they are –
super cala fragalistic expialidoshus !!!
I must have them all !!! they punch where ever you want them to. The punch has a magnetized bottom part that comes away from the top enabling you to place your card in between and punch anywhere – great invention.
This is the one I have been playing with, sorry working with. Its a hard job but someone has to do it.
