Shh, Santa has Been Shopping


Good morning crafters,
There are some very lucky ladies out there, you must have your partners very well-trained and it has paid off! This weekend our Christmas decorations went up in the shop and some lovely Christmas presents went out of the shop.
I daren’t say who those lucky ladies are but I can tell you some of the goodies that have been bought for you:-
THE EBOSSER, such a dream to use and we have a dream of an offer on at the moment, along with the machine you get forty A4 sheets of assorted coloured card and a Disney die and embossing folder all at a dream of a price of £159.99
THE CUTTLEBUG, still as popular as ever.
THE MELTING POT, along with all the accessories such as project pan, heat it inks, texture treads, mold and pour, bees-wax, ultra thick embossing powders (Melt Art and Cosmic Shimmer) and bezels. All very competitively priced.
TOTES, for Copic pens, Cameo machine and carrying your craft essentials. Especially the Tim Holtz Ticket and Crowded Attic totes, I use mine all the time to go shopping, much smarter than a plastic carrier bag!
STORAGE, 8 drawer tower, A4 & 12″x12″ trays.
The cake ladies among you haven’t been forgotten.
CRICUT CAKE, fantastic for cutting decorative shapes for your cakes.
BOOKS, mouth-watering, all by Mich Turner, Couture Wedding Cakes, Cake Master Class, Fantastic Party Cakes and Spectacular Cakes. Now that’s something for you to drool over on Christmas day!
That’s just to name a few.
Don’t you want EVERYTHING?
Are YOU one of those lucky ladies?
If your partner is still in training why not visit us and make a wish list that you can send him in to crib off!
If you can’t get in to see us give us a call on 01282833091

Hi Everyone

Cant believe how quickly this week is going. Coffee and Craft Club tomorrow – always love that.

We had a lovely lady in last week and she treated herself to a melting pot. Alysha very kindly sent me a couple of photos through – so I am sharing them with you as well.

Good Morning Crafters,
Last Wednesday we held our second Friendly Plastic Workshop, we all had a wonderful time. Some of the ladies were from a papercraft background and some from jewellery, they bounced ideas off each other and produced some awesome pieces.
They used both the melt pot and heat gun to soften the plastic and for the jewellers among us, we used the Cropadile to make holes for the bails to be attached to hang as pendants.
I am sure that you will agree that they produced some beautiful items.

Good Evening
Below is a blog post that Gillian wrote for you all, for some reason it did not post!!! Gremlins in blog land perhaps.
Anyway I have posted it all for you to take a look at because I know that Gillian will be updating you with how her Workshop went this afternoon. I did manage a sneaky peak at what everyone had created and it was all rather interesting.
Back Soon

Good Morning Crafters,
I have been busy preparing for our Friendly Plastic Workshop this afternoon. This is the second beginners workshop we have held, just look what our novices produced!
We used all sorts of papercrafting goodies to enhance the friendly plastic such as stickles, rubber stamps, sequin waste, fusible fibres and peeloffs. We heated the friendly plastic with both the heat gun and the melting pot.I hope we have as much fun this afternoon as we did last time.
Watch this space……..

Craft Event Part 4


Good Morning, what a fabulous weekend we have all had – the weather is so Summer !!!
Whatever you were up to hope it was good for you.

Well part 4 is going to be concentrating on Annette who demonstrated for us on behalf of P.I

Meet Annette Lee (on the right) pictured with the talented Maria Simms. I am a fan of Annette’s work it never fails to get you creative, especially if you have lost your mojo.


Annette worked with spellbinders dies and the melting pot. Everyone was treated to an amazing demonstration of flowers cut out from dies and then coated in clear Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel – the end results were stunning – really clever and everyone loved them.

Annette also had other samples with her.



Untill next time
