Happy New Year.  Christmas seems such a long time ago now but we have lots of things to tell you about.



Sue Vincent has agreed to do another Zentangle session on Tuesday 16th February.  The time will be 10.30am – 12.30 and the cost is £7.50.  Please secure your place by booking and paying in advance. This is open to those who have “doodled” before and also to beginners.  Zentangle have now produced Books 11 and 12.  Book 11 has sold out here but I am expecting a delivery from USA any day now.  I have one Book 12 in stock.


We still have 40% discount on all Christmas items.  There are Hunkydory kits plus dies, embossing folders and stamps – time to get ahead (and a bargain) for Christmas 2016.


We have had lots of new arrivals recently.


Woodware -  have some lovely new stamps out including ones for children and especially some good ones for men – boots, shoes and a backpack.  We have also today received some of the new Stampendous Stencil Duo sets (complete with pen and cards).  There and two metal (Dreamweaver) Stencils in each kit – one open stencil and one background.  These can be used together or independently, can be pasted or Zentangled (or a mixture of both) and some lovely designs.  We shall be putting together some examples for your over the coming weeks.


Kaisercraft – We have now in stock six papers from their Fairy Dust Collection.  All papers are doubled sided and two have message panels on them which make them ideal for cardmakers.  These retail at £1.00 per sheet.


Crafters Companion – You may be aware that Crafters Companion have now produced their own electronic die/embossing machine.  They will no longer be supplying the Cut ‘n Boss but have now had the A plate and Magnetic Mats produced themselves and we have a good supply of both.  These are also considerably cheaper than the originals.


We also have back in stock the Crafters Companion Stick and Stay Adhesive Spray which is fantastic for sticking all those fiddly small die cut shapes.  For those who prefer another option the A4 sheets of Stick-It are also back in stock.


We have also expanded our range of colours of Centura Pearl and now have 11 colours in stock.  These are 40p per sheet .


Lastly, from Crafters Companion we have an initial supply of the mini dies – Mum, Dad, Brother, Sister, Son, Daughter.  Just the right size to add to a card.  Prices start at £1.50.  If these sell well we will expand the range – there are a lot on offer.


Creative Expressions – We have now a small stock of the Colour Cloud. This is a similar product to the Pinflair Gentle Blends but at £3.99 (instead of £5.95) we think this is a much better price.  Therefore all the stock of Gentle Blends has been reduced to £3.99 while stock lasts.  As we need to restock on colours we will get the Colour Cloud and with a choice of 48 colours there is something for everyone.
