Demonstration Dilemma!


Good Morning Crafters,
I am in an enviable dilemma, every Saturday Liz and I take it in turns to do demonstrations at Craftrange.
We have the freedom to pick what we would like to demonstrate and it is my turn today.
Here is my dilemma, I had originally thought of die cutting shapes out of thick card,I would use the ebosser machine, it is lovely to use and ours is at a very competitive price at the moment. Next I could decorate them with embossing powders, (I may have to use the gorgeous Frantage kits again!) and then coating them with something to seal and make them glossy (I was thinking of using Glossy Accents). Mmmmm endless possibilities I would enjoy that.
I went into the warehouse of Michael Toms Stationers (our parent company) to find some paper balls for a customer, I have known about them for years but only today did I notice that they had holes through them. They aren’t balls they are BEADS! So, I am thinking, whatever you can do on a flat piece of paper you can do on a paper bead. The lovely colours of Alcohol Inks to give colour and embossing powders for texture.
Oh the possibilities are endless but the working day too short to do both, bearing in mind we also have a full day Molly Blooms Workshop and an 80% off sale, I have to decide What I am going to do?
What would YOU do?
Will I have time to do both?
Call in to see what I have decided.

Cuttlebug v2


Good Morning

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.

Cuttlebug Embossing & Die Cutting Machine V2

Have a good weekend, visit us if you can – in-store coffee shop open Saturday, closed Sundays.


Gilding Flakes Cards


Here are a couple of sample cards  that were made on the demo day Saturday just gone.  We very often hold demonstrations at weekend to show different techniques.  This demo proved to be very popular.  The image was stamped with duo glue and gilding flakes were used to achieve the effect shown.  Any rubber stamps work with this technique, but the penny black rubber stamps that were used gave a really nice elegant finished card.
We  have a good range of the penny black stamps in stock and limited quantities of the various colors of gilding flakes and duo glue that were used.  It did  however prove to be so popular that I am sure we will be re-stocking on these items.  Just give us a call if you require any information on the products used and we can put them aside for you or post through mail order.  The red card that has been used as a border on one of the cards  is new in stock but flying out.  The depth of colour on this amazing card stock (12″x12″) has to be seen to be fully appreciated – it’s gorgeous.
