Nickki's Tag

Good Afternoon

Today I am showcasing another of our design team's tag.  This one is made by the lovely Nickki.

Started by covering a piece of card with scrunched up brown paper, then layered using the Vintage Car Parts backing papers. I used my Xcut scalloped square nesting dies to cut and emboss the Roadster backing paper and the Inner Topper layering them at different angles. I also used my Xcut 4cm flower border punch and added ribbon,brads, candi and gems from my stash to embellish.

Our Leader's Tag

Good afternoon all,

I hope you have all had a lovely day, I have been out today spending on crafty goodies, I did enjoy myself too. 

Well I am about to show you our leader's tag!  As you know for a bit of fun leading up to the launch of our very first challenge I sett the design team a challenge to make a tag using the soon to be released double CD Vintage cars.  I informed Mike that as he was the leader and part of the DT he had to take part too!  Here is his fantastic Tag.

Don't you think it is fantastic.  I am so loving the way he has embellished this.  Our Ian is going to have a real tough job chosing the winner from all the fantastic tags the DT has made.

I would like to thank the design team for playing along on this fun challenge.

Thank you for Stopping by Today

Strawberry Kisses

Here's one of the first samples for the Strawberry Kisses unmounted rubber stamps. Isn't it cute! This stamp is called...yes, you guessed it "Together Forever" and the sentiment comes as part of the stamp!

The stamp has also been coloured using the Spectrum Noir pens, all the colours are available in the 6 pen sets that we currently sell.

Blog update & Catch up

Cor blimey, what a whirl wind couple of months it's been!

As some of you may know we've started working with Crafter's Companion at the shows and exhibitions we're doing this year and so far it's been a great success, with you ladies (& gents) taking advantage of the great offers we're able to bring you from ourselves as well as Crafter's Companion!

So far we've done shows in Edinburgh, Gateshead and Sheffield and they've all been lots of fun and a great success! Our next show is this weekend at the Sincerely Yours show at the Darwin Sports Centre in Biggin Hill, Kent!

We've also launched our new CD "In the Attic" which is available to buy now from our website and the new double CD collection of Vintage Motors is finished and the first CDs have been sent off to our Design Team so they can get started on creating some new inspiring samples for you to see just what you can do with this new fantastic double CD set! Which, incidentally, will be available to buy for the first time at the marvelous Summer Crafting show at the Doncaster Racecourse in July! (tickets are on sale now!!!).

We're also organising to hot up the action on this blog and start to involve our crafty customers much more by starting to issue design challenges for you to participate in! So watch this space!
