New TV Show

We spent yesterday afternoon at Create & Craft filming our new TV show that should be on air Saturday 5th June at 3pm.

During the show I did briefly use one of the new Stazon inkpads so that you can see what a fabulous look they give.

Hope you'll be able to watch the show.

Emma from Time to Sow came with us to the studios to see how it all works and she got to sit in the gallery with the Producer and the Director and see how things are on the other side of the camera.

Demo Day Photos Part 2

On entering our classroom you would have seen the lovely Paula Pascual working with her clear stamps and Distress inkpads. Sitting next to Paula was Lindsay from Kuretake demonstrating with their KC3000 alchohol pens.

Next around the room was Karen Lines from Creative Expressions working with their rubber stamps, Distress inkpads and Cosmic Shimmer.
In the far corner was our very own Lesley with an abundance of her wonderful artwork which included the new truck and VW Beetle from Printworks.Last, but by no means least was Kay Carley working with DeNami stamps and the Pearlescent Watercolour paint palette.

Artwork from the day to follow soon.

Demo Day Photos Part 1

Let me take you on a guided tour of our store as it was on Saturday 22nd May - Demo Day.

As you walk into reception we added a few tropical decorations (notice the palm tree made of cardboard).This giant cupcake was baked by my own fair hands, 2nd attempt came out looking like a cupcake. 1st attempt tasted good but didn't look very presentable. The first person just inside the shop door was Dawn Inskip working with the Nellie Snellen Multi Frame Dies and Punches.

Sitting next to Dawn, her partner in all things mischevious, Jo Channon. Jo was working with a selection of JudiKins oriental stamps along with gold leafing and Amazing Glaze. Further into the shop Emma Lockey (Time to Sow) was playing with the Helix Craft Room Work Station and was especially loving the Pricking mat & mesh.
Beside the counter Vicky was working with the new JudiKins Clay Squishers and the new Das air dry clay in colours.Part 2 to follow . . . . .

Did you come and see us at the South Stamp Show with your email to collect the exclusive free rubber stamp?

We had a good day in Worthing and a nice journey home in only 2 hours. The next show in Worthing is on Saturday 4th May.

If you didn't make it to the show you won't have seen our new Ice Cream Sundae, Sweet Treat Pockets and Strawberry templates. I will make sure I post up photos of all of these tomorrow so you can see how adorable they are.

Tuesday 4 May 2010


Today was a good day for deliveries. We received 14 boxes in total - lots of goodies including re-stocks of the new Tim Holtz Distress inkpads and Tim Holtz stamps, Tim Holtz Memo Pins (at last) and Martha Stewart punches.

We also received lots of new My Little Shoebox papers (25 different designs) and some Studio 490 stamps as well as some of the new Hot Off The Press templates.
