Crafts Beautiful Awards 2013 – Voting Still Open
We would like to thank all those of you who have already voted for us in these awards but the voting is still open.
If you would like to support us with your vote that would be fantastic!
You can vote for us as ‘Best Independent Craft Shop – Wales’ under ‘OTHER’ in this category.
Debbie has been super busy with deliveries this week and we have got some lovely bits from Tonic’s Christmas Die range together with a restock of some of our favourite products. Also back in stock are the Kushgrip craft knives.
These are great to work with and with so many ways to use them they are fabulous. We have them available in 9 colours; Fired Brick, Salty Ocean, Peeled Paint, Picket Fence, Picked Raspberry, Seedless Preserve, Spied Marmalade, Victorian Velvet and Wild Honey.
Distress Paints are very fluid water-based acrylic paints for multiple surfaces. Tim Holtz and Ranger developed these special paints to be reactive with water just like Distress Inks and Distress Stains—perfect to accomplish a wide variety of artistic techniques. Distress Paints have a convenient dabber system for easy and mess-free application. Use with stamps, paper, wood, metal, glass, plastic and more for a timeless matte finish on craft projects.
Creative Expressions A4 Embossing Folder Interlocking Circles – Back in stock for you.
NEW – Just Rite Stamps
Just arrived we have the Secret Garden and the Leafy background stamps. How gorgeous are these? No answer required because we know the answer!..lol
Use with your heat embossing and WOW powders especially in the new Vintage Inspired colour range and they would work well with the Distress Paints too. Mandy-Jane has got her thinking-inking cap on……and you know what that means….Inky Messy.
Also new in we have the large bottles of the Cosmic Shimmer dries clear glue which is a firm favourite with all of you. So just think now you can buy it in a bigger bottle for even more gluing fun! Use it as a resist technique with your Distress Inks. Apply where you want the design or texture, let it dry and then ink over it with a blend of Distress Inks in your favourite colour scheme. Wipe off excess ink and there you have a fab resist effect.
So much has come in for you to browse (while we have stocks!). We have a lovely selection of Creative Expressions Grosgrain stripe ribbon, their NEW Crochet ribbon (by the metre) and beautiful two-one red ribbon as on TV recently together with NEW Singles Bauble stamps (which are selling fast with designs already sold out!)and matching Spellbinders dies.
NEW Embossing folders have come in and they are such lovely designs. We know that not everyone likes to do large cards but the A4 size is so useful. If you are batch making cards it’s quick to pass an A4 piece of card through your die-cutting machine and then cut it in half to make 2 x A5 mats OR why not choose to do a fancy lid for your boxes. The designs you can choose from are; Christmas tree, Sleigh and Holly Border.
And not to disappoint all of you die-cutting devotees we also have some new Cheery Lynn dies in too. Also available are words; Husband, Wife and Sister.
The Diagonal Trellis is back in stock as well.
