Something Different!

Have you spotted the Elizabeth Crafts dies in the shop that you can use to create pieces of jewellery with? All the products featured are now half price. We have the Sea Glass set……
…and the Droplets set:

The dies cut shapes that are perfect for necklaces and earrings.  Watch a short video here that shows how the dies can be used with Shimmer Sheets to create jewellery.

I like the way the shimmer sheets can be embossed and sanded, or even coloured with alcohol inks.
We have packs of shimmer sheets in stock. This first pack is a mix of metallic colours. There are ten sheets in the pack.
We also have the patterned type that shimmers with different colours in stock as well. These are also a mix of colours with ten sheets in the pack:
Finding masculine cards difficult is something we hear a lot in the craft room. How about investing in an electric guitar die which would also be great for teenage cards?  Its usually £10.99 but now half price! We have several in stock.

I found loads of inspiration on the web for using it. This first card combines the guitar with a large shadowed birthday greeting and some music notes. Very effective.

This gatefold style card features a pair of guitars and a stamped image. How about putting a photo of the recipient on the inside for a bit of extra fun.

This third card features the guitar backed with some music themed pattern paper:

Or take it up a notch and create a side step card using silver metallic card and more music notes. That stamped greeting was from a previous Creative Stamping collection.

Finally, we have been sorting out lots of pre-loved craft equipment that we have used for classes. There’s a lot! As well as punches we have heat guns, craft sheets, cutting mats, paint, palettes stamps and lots more besides. Do call in for coffee, cake, chat and a browse.

We have also found some new items in the stock room which we are selling for bargain prices!  Please let me know if there is anything featured that you would like reserved.

More Bargains!

Did you spot the birds on the card above. We have that stamp set in stock! Now only £3.
These two sets, dies and stamps, work really well together. The trainers could also be used for activities other than tennis as well.
The die is large so makes a great focal point for a card:

I thought I would highlight this cute stamp set. The two children, dressed up to play cowboys and Indians is really sweet. It would make nice children’s cards, or embellishments for scrapbook layouts. We have just the one in stock, but of course it’s half price!
