Indigo Blu has Arrived


Good evening crafters,
It seems to be that every day there are boxes of new stock arriving, the biggest problem is finding space for everything!
I must admit it is a nice problem to have.
Here are some of the Idigo Blu stamps we now have in stock:-

I am sure that you would get a lot of use from them all, my extra favourites are the ones with the borders on, in particular the Wild Meadow and Nature, oh and I think that the verse with the Poppy Meadow stamp is so beautiful.

The background stamps are all very versatile, I particularly like the Bubbles, Script, Honeycomb, Crackle Glaze and Script Music, teamed with the Bare Forest, Vintage Flourish or Stylised Flowers and the effects would be stunning.

You could use them with Pan Pastels, Distress Ink/pads, versamark, Wow! embossing powders, gilding flakes, gilding wax oh the list is endless and I need to get crafting, so I will love you and leave you.
As ever, if you cannot visit the shop please give us a call on 01282833091
Carry on crafting,

Craft Event Part 6


Good Afternoon

Seen as it is our next Grand Craft Event this Saturday, I thought that I better finish part 6 the final part from the last craft event we had.

Linda Page demonstrated for us and it was a fantastic demonstration, Linda showed us all how to use pan pastels (oh and mentioning pan pastels we have just taken delivery of the BRAND NEW METALLIC Pan Pastels). Linda also demonstrated brayering, it was one of the most interesting demonstrations that I have seen. Linda very cleverly did two cards exactly the same using pan pastels on one and ink with brayer on the other – it was great to see the same thing done but with two different mediums. Both were fantastic and a few of the customers that were not confident with inks and brayer found they could work well with the pan pastels.
Cant wait to see what Linda will demonstrate this Saturday, I am sure she will have a brayer somewhere to hand and will have some amazing samples to show us all.

Hope your all having a great day
Back Soon
