Good morning Stampers

We have decided to lower our FREE postage threshold from £50 to only £30 on all UK orders.  So now you only have to spend just over £30 to receive your order postage free.

If you are not too far from Kempston or are passing through on Sunday our store will be open 12-5pm, this is our last Sunday until October so why not take advantage and drop in to see what is new.

In case you hadn't guessed it!!!  We are on Create & Craft on Monday at 2pm and 7pm launching some new Christmas stamps.  I will try and get these on the website over the weekend.  We've got some lovely new cute designs as well as some traditional style ones in our biggest set yet!   Remember if you watch on Freeview you can see the later show online - we hope you can tune in.

This is our new cling mounted Parasol stamp.  The top card is an 8 x 8" card so that gives you some idea of the size of the Parasol.

20% off Christmas Stamps

I am lucky enough not to have any football in my house but I know that lots of you are currently football widows so we are offering you 20% off all Christmas stamps so you can get a head start on your Christmas cards - and hopefully this will help get you through these next few weeks of football madness.

Enter 'XMAS' in the notes/comments box and we will manually deduct the discount before we despatch your order.  This will not show on screen as it does have to be done manually, but it will show on your delivery note.

If you want to avoid the football final completely you could join us for our Summer Cardmaking Weekend  30th June - 1st July.  We have a handful of spaces available for only £99 each, which includes stamping 10am-5pm with pizza for lunch and lots of refreshments.  We work in small groups of maximum 6 people and achieve 15-18 cards over the weekend.  If you would like to join us you can book online or call us on 01234 855833.

Chandelier - As seen on TV

I made this card on Create & Craft with our Solid Chandelier.  I embossed it in black and then added a few gems.
I created the background by repeat stamping one of the solid motifs over a sheet of card in alternative directions, and then cut into strips.

Dreamhouse by Linda

Linda has been playing with the shrink plastic again and you can see the Dreamhouse shrinks down amazingly well, I was concerned it would lose a lot of detail but I am happy to say I was wrong.

Saturday 2 June 2012


This is our new Townhouses rubber stamp.  The key and escutcheon and sentiments are from the Dreamhouse stamp set.
