We've just sent out a Newsletter (hope you are on our website mailing list?!) and it featured some fabulous Christmas ornaments made by teamie Joanna..

 ..and here is another..

I love them - must have a go at these myself, so pretty!  Thanks for making these Joanna, taking the step photos and writing up the instructions, you are a star!

We have put many of our Christmas themed stamps on special offer over the weekend coming to celebrate Joanna's ornaments 'how to' projects.  You will find them mixed up on the Special Offer pages HERE and HERE.

We also showed you this very gorgeous Shadow Box by Daniele..

Daniele made this for our recent Hochanda show but unfortunately it didn't arrive until just after the event even though she had sent it first class - such is the postal system sometimes!  It is so beautiful it deserves to feature prominently I hope you will agree!  Lots of lovely sparkle on those butterflies and crackle on the background.  The flowery images are from one of our A4 Glossy Sheets and the butterflies from another Sheet that I was going to link to next but it seems it isn't on the site - must rectify that on Monday!  The Shadow Box itself is an easy 'build it yourself' make by a Polish company Scrapiniec, which you will find HERE.

On the show we also had this beauty by Flo..

It's amazing the different looks we can get with the one item! Scrapiniec also make all these lovely lasercut items too which you can find Here.

Daniele's delayed package also contained cards she had made for the show, and this one is particularly deliciously and delicately coloured, with that adorable little wheelbarrow bottom left..

Wow thanks ladies.

That's all for today folks,
Back soon,

Wow, so many pretty things here. The Christmas ornaments are superb and such a great idea by Joanna. The shadow boxes by Danielle and Flo look amazing and just show the versatility of this product. These would make wonderful presents at any time of the year and the fact that they are handmade makes them all the more special. Finally, Danielle’s card looks stunning. The wheelbarrow and lace flowers compliment the lovely flower stamp which has been coloured so beautifully. Well done ladies, your crafty makes are a feast for the eyes and thanks to you Jean for sharing them. Crafty hugs, Sandra x x
