Morning all …hope those of you that managed to come to our open day yesterday had a good time
The workshops were all full, everyone seemed to really enjoy them and we had GREAT feedback about the new mermaid and fairy stamps
Here’s another little peek at one of the mermaids, this delicious card was made by our Elise…
Elise makes such gorgeous girlie cards and you always enjoy seeing them judging by the comments we get …take a look at her blog if you’d like to look at more of her work

Good morning everybody, it’s the weekend again and we’re having some lovely weather here in Leeds.
We’ve had some beautiful bright and breezy days with just a bit of a nip in the air; I love Autumn when it’s like this and I hope you’re managing to find time to sneak in a bit of crafting on this lovely sunny Sunday!
Only 1 more day to go until the release of our new Mini Masterpiece sheets and I have another little sneaky peek for you today;
This is one of our older images and was on one of most popular die cut sheets called Vintage Girls. That sheet has now sold out so I’m sure you’ll be pleased to see these lovely little girls brought back as a Mini Masterpiece …beautifully coloured in as always for you by our Bev
The stamp is here on our website and it’s called Little Girls Tea Time
The little blue felt flowers are new to our showroom and they are SO cute! …we have them in various colours and styles
The greeting is from our Vintage Sentiments – Just To Say sheet …cut and embossed using a Spellbinders Labels 18 die
Finally …all the backing papers are from our Petal Fresh pad which co-ordinates perfectly with the blues in the picture
Hope you like it, I’ll have another one to show you tomorrow …and enjoy the rest of your Sunday

Hi everyone, I have great news for all you mini masterpiece lovers …
…the next 16 sheets will be launched on the website at midnight UK time next Tuesday 16th October (that's the midnight between Monday and Tuesday!)
There will be a mixture of boys, girls and Christmas
Here’s a little peek for you – this little munchkin is one of our best selling boy images and he’s called Abracadabra! (click on the link to see the stamp)
I know a few of you (myself included) struggle with using the darker colours so this one will be very popular I think …all the hard work has been done for you by our fabulous Bev so you can get straight on with making your lovely card without worrying about the colouring!
I’ll put all the details for the card on my blog for you. This delicious ribbon was sent to me by the gorgeous girlies over at Crafty Ribbons, we’ve been so busy doing Christmas cards that I haven’t had chance to use my bag of goodies yet. There are some beautiful ribbons and they have some that are exclusive to them so do have a look at their shop …and I’ll be back tomorrow with another sneaky peek
Have a lovely day
