Brilliant Bowmaker

Just quickly sharing a few of the demo bows I made at the Stitches Trade show with the Brilliant Bowmaker to give you an idea of the possibilities.  I made loads of the bow above to dot about the stand.

There are more ideas to show and I'll give a few tips to help another time.

A fluffy rosette type bow takes just seconds longer than making a simple single or even double bow

I lost count of how many bows I made at the show.  I wasn't really a bow lover before but I love them now as these are easy peasy to make!!

You can find the kit on our website HERE

More new products!!

I got back last night after a fabulous time at the trade show at the NEC and I wanted to share details of a couple of the new products that I fell in love with, I have tested them both out and I can highly recommend adding them to your craft stash.

I took over a hundred photos at the show, including freshly made inspiration from Fran from Stampendous, Lynell from Dreamweaver stencils, Jane and Francoise from Woodware Craft Collection too so I will share those with you another time.

I was working on the Woodware stand and was thrilled to be able to demonstrate the new Brilliant Bowmaker there. Fran was 'playing' with the Creative Palette and I loved what she created with it.

I have added the product descriptions below but will add more info another time.

Stampendous Creative Palette

The Creative Palette is a monoprinting plate that will allow you to create an infinite variety of backgrounds and textures for your mixed media canvases, art journals, scrapbook pages, cards, home decor and other projects. An indispensable tool, it allows you to use acrylic paints, inks, and other mediums together with stamps, textures and tools to create a Stampendous Impression every time. Don't miss the Stampendous series of YouTube videos on this terrific product. Palette is A4 (measures 210 X 293cm) and comes in a snap tight storage case allowing it to be stored in any position. Durable and versatile. Easy Clean Up! Instructions, tips and ideas included.

Brilliant Bowmaker

Our brand new package geared towards scrap bookers and card makers! This set contains our four smallest templates - the Medium, Small and Infant classic style for traditional loop bows as well as the 3/8" Snap template for flowers, snowflakes and butterflies. These come with a full colour card that explains the self tied method of construction for the Classic bows and detailed photos for the Snap template as well. If you are a visual learner, just scan the code on the back of the card to have our video guide you through the process.

I promised some ladies that I would let them know when I had added these 2 products when I got back.  They are on our website now in the new stuff  accessory section HERE

I had added more new products before and I know I still have more to add... I love this time of year!!!

Base-its and the new Woodware stamps

Here are a few more cards I made for the new Woodware catalogue with the new Base-It cards and Francoise Read's new stamp designs.

Base-Its have been designed to get your creativity flowing, not a blank piece of card in sight, just an easy way to add toppers, or stamped images. Pack contains 10 300gsm cards of one design and plain white envelopes. (6 x 6 inches) 15 x 15 cm.

There are 12 different pre-printed design packs available.  Although they are pre-printed you can still add more ink/colour if you wish to.

For these cards I have used the cards as they come without adding any additional ink.

For the card above I have used:

Base-It's - Filigree Border B30016
Woodware Birthdays (Words to cheer) - Clear Magic Single FRS147
Jute square panel
Burlap Daisies - Small (15 in pack) 21mm - MFE146B
Crumpled Paper Pack

I used the Woodware Happiness is... (Inspirational words) Clear Magic Single FRS153 with Base-It cards and 2 new punches from Woodware the Butterfly and the leaf.

Base-It cards can be found HERE

Thanks for popping by...

Baby and New Home Welcomes

Here are some more cards that I made for the new Woodware stamp collection catalogue.  I love this stork design, and it is ideal for baby girls or boys.

I combined the Stork delivery set with a new baby wording set for the card above but as you can see from the stamps in the set below there are plenty of options there for wording.

 Woodware Stork Delivery Clear Magic Single FRS311

There is another wording stamp set for twins!  Blogger won't allow me to add any more photos to this post but if you are interested, here is the link...

Here's another example for a baby boy card.
