This week in store

One word sums up the last week - STOCK! Just when we think we have found space for everything.. another box arrives and we have to re-arrange everything again! But with so much beautiful stock this week it is completely worth it. We have some great classes on this week too including our new Tim's Tags Class



As I mentioned last week we have had a huge shipment of Spellbinders arrive. I have included a few more pictures and ideas to inspire you.
This hanging uses the Bitty Blossoms and Girlie Grunge Labels and the gift set uses Persian Motifs and Persian Accents

This link will give you a really good idea of how the words work and how fabulous they look:

Spellbinders now in store

I have had so many people ask me when the new spellbinders dies were arriving that I thought it was probably best to let everyone know straight away. There are plenty of new and different designs to choose from.

We also have the New Cut and Fold Dies

Whilst these designs look incredibly complicated and difficult they are infact incredibly easy to do with these new dies. Be sure to check out this video to see how thyey work!

Our delivery also includes the new double sided embossing folders too!! These have been so popular they are in short supply and many are already out of stock at Spellbinders!!

We will also show you how to use asome of these new dies and folders in our class next Friday
