Busy Busy Fortnight


Good Evening
Sorry we have not been about for a few days, its been all go here at http://www.craftrange.com. We have been busy in the shop, planning to create space for all the new products we have coming in-store. Last week Deb, Gillian and I visited Stitches – UK’s equivalent to CHA, it’s the largest trade craft show in the UK where we get to visit all the major exhibitors stands to see the new products that are coming onto the craft market this year.

It was a great show with plenty to see and we have lots of new products that will be coming in-store over the next few months. Gillian is going to be blogging soon about the visit there and I will also have some posts and plenty of photos for you all to see.

On Friday and Saturday just gone I went on a Dreamweaver stencil teaching course at Woodware, totally amazing, fantastic and brilliant. I loved every single minute of it and learned so much – lets just hope I pass !! It was so informative and I have come away totally inspired, Lynell Harlow owner and designer of Dreamweaver stencils taught the class and she is truly an inspiration. Woodware hosted the class and I was well and truly looked after, Dorothy and Judith were as alway great hosts and fed us all very well so much so I think I rolled out of the building by the end of the second day! I have worked with Dreamweaver Stencils on and off for about 8 years now and will certainly be doing some samples for you all to see on the blog and in-store.

I am going to leave you with some amazing cakes, cupcakes and pop cakes that we saw at the show. I am sure that you will agree they are outstanding.

Untill next time
Happy Crafting

CD’s now half price


Just finished sorting all the CD’s and putting them in to a 50% sale (in store only or via phone 01282 833091). There are some great bargains to be had including Joanna Sheen, Crafters Companion, Artylicious and Sheena Douglass Paint Fushion DVD to mention a few. You can make some great projects with CD’s and print off as many as you require for an endless supply.

My favourite Glue is the Cosmic Shimmer Acrylic Glue I love the way that it sticks embellishments with ease. As it is a good all round glue you do not have to keep swapping about using different glues for a project thus saving time and money both precious commodities. Cosmic Shimmer also do a fantastic range of pearl pva which makes great faux pearls.

Thought you would all like to know that the rolls of Wax Paper are now back in stock. I use wax paper all the time when using spellbinders dies it helps when die cutting to ease the paper/card out of the die.

Also back instock this week are cake boards and sugar paste in a wide range of colours. We now have the Sugar Florist paste in cream and Holly Ivy as well as the white which is useful for making flowers etc.

Happy crafting
