Party Time Cling Stamps

Flutterby Crafts have a range of Cling Stamps by Trimcraft in the shop or online HERE. They are a range of brand new cling stamps from Helz Cuppleditch, the artist who brought us Pepper & Friends.

There are twelve new characters in the cling collection including pandas, puppies, kittens, fairies, rabbits and a family of bears. Every image has been hand drawn by Helz and she’s added little extras in every pack.

When I first looked at this card I thought the banners for the background were papers but NO, they have been stamped and beautifully coloured using ProMarkers by Nicky....she is amazing, don't you think?

What I like about this stamp set is that the packaging gives you a coloured impression as a colouring guide!

Saturday Crop

Just a reminder that on Saturday, 26th March, it's time to sort out your photo's and join Catherine in the Playroom for another session of SATURDAY CROP.

Catherine, is building up her Scrapbook album which includes her daughter, who is the youngest member of family, but is growing up so fast. Here, is a peep at her latest Scrapbook page 'YOU ARE MY SUNSHINE'. Apart from the adorable photo, Catherine has added lots of dimension and texture to the page by using chipboard letters, ribbon , flowers, flat backed pears and doodling.

If you are new to scrapbooking and would like to learn techniques on how to create a Scrapbook page, we would love to see you. However, if you are already a Scrapbooker, and would like to set a few crafting hours aside for yourself, the SATURDAY CROP is the perfect opportunity to join other crafters and exchange ideas.

Also, on 26 March in the Bead Shop, Ruth will be available for those of you who want help with your jewellery projects at the JEWELLERY DROP-IN.

....and more Roses

I love these roses they just make such an adorable embellishment. They are so easy to make, just by using the right type of flower punch, some double sided paper and then curled to give this lovely effect.

The roses have been adhered onto some smooth embossed cardstock which has been placed in a heart embossing folder to give this lovely delicate background.

In this project the embossing folder is by Crafts-Too and is available in the shop.

What a busy time!

Well, it has been a manic few weeks (for a change!!).

Last week we were at the trade show picking new goodies to keep you ladies (and gents) crafting. Seen some good stuff and it will be filtering through over the coming weeks.

Had a HUGE delivery of glass and wood today, together with some devine piggy banks, teddy bear banks and wellies. Can not wait to have a decorate of those!!

Tomorrow we are due to get a delivery of stickers from a new company. We choose some lovely ones for the boys. No excuse now, they are going to get some good cards.

Because of all the new bits and pieces, we are having a shuffle around - if you came in today, I do apologise for the chaos. Will all be sorted tomorrow and we can unveil our new wedding corner - so if you know someone who is getting married.........

Anyway, come and see what we have got!!

Lynn xx
