80% Sale ends Saturday 3rd August 2013



Good Evening all

I am really excited to tell you that the sale we had on Saturday went so well that we have decided to make a week of it.

New products are to be added daily into the sale ALL at 80% off – everything must go to make room for new stock.

There is a fabulous range of products on offer from cuttlebug dies, sizzix, Fiskars Brayers, Inks, Craftwork Cards, Papers, Rubber Stamps – wooden and acrylic, jolees stickers, Le Plume Pens, Stencils and the list goes on and on and on !!.

Well worth a visit, ideal buys for individual crafters, nursery’s, craft clubs to after school clubs and with it being the school holidays it’s the perfect opportunity to grab a bargain for the kids. We have plenty on offer to keep them amused for hours, you could even get them started on “dare I say it” Christmas Cards.

All you pay is 20p in every £1.00 so you really can’t go wrong.

Today I treated myself, I could not resist 2 Cd’s that I have had my eye on for a while. Total cost £8 (result) they should have been £40.00 – yeah


Mmmm now what should I treat myself to tomorrow.

Back soon

Friendly Plastic


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.

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……..

Jane Gill Floral Punch Craft


Good Morning

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
