Christmas Chocolate Baroque stamps that we now have in stock
Good Morning all,
I`d like to take this opportunity to thank all the ladies who come on Tuesday`s, for not just sharing their tips and ideas, but for actually sharing all their crafting goodies, and making my Tuesday`s great fun.
What I enjoy so much is how varied everyone is, Pauline using Decoupage, Barbara embossing with Vellum, Diana making flowers with Card Candy and others using stamps. Still popular is die cutting many shapes.
If you fancy the idea of spending a couple of hours crafting with friends but can not make Tuesday`s, as from Friday 13th September (I`m unsure if this is a good date to start maybe I will lock up all the scissors ) there will be another sociable morning, 10.30--12.30 £2.00 with refreshments.
Janice and I look forward to seeing you.

Good morning. This week I have a little birdcage made with an X-Cut die. I have cut the die four times and used extra card to make my joins. The bottom is a tray made from the same card, then I have stuck the cage on the outside of the tray.
At the top the loops are folded in half and then stuck together to form a four sided ring which can be used to hang the cage.
Inside the cage is a peacock made using the rosette die from Sizzix. If you would like to know more about the cage or the peacock then please pop over to my blog and have a look.
When you get a new die try cutting it out in cheap card and playing around with it, it's good to find other ways of using it. We all like to get as much out of our stash as we can so give it a try. Have a look at this one for a butterfly made from a window.
As promised a couple of samples below for you beautifully created by Julie. Both these samples were created with our latest product arrivals from Chocolate Baroque.
Julie has created this amazing card using a combination of Chocolate Baroque stamps and some of the Brand New WOW! embossing powders. So new that they did not even reach our warehouse before being whisked off the The Great British Craft Festival for all our lovely customers.
Julie's talents are endless as she has also created to gorgeous summer card to add a little zing to anyones summer celebrations.Read more...
