Fab New Crate Paper and loads of new stuff from Basic Grey

I have to say, I have always loved Crate Paper. Ever since their first collection, I've yet to see paper with a better texture. Their last releases were at CHA Winter 2007 so they've made us wait a full year but they've now released four gorgeous new ranges. Take a look for yourself. I think Katlin and Sweet Branch are my favorites. They're also doing a full range of chipboard alphabets, rubons, chipboard buttons, ribbons and brads to go with each collection.

I also just got a sneak peek of the FIVE new collections from Basic Grey being released this week at CHA - Cupcake, Sugared, Sultry, Archaic and Boxer.

Cupcake - looks to be some totally new designs on a birthday party theme. I like it!!

Sugared - looks a bit similar to some of their previous collections. Hmmm!

Sultry - what do you think?

Archaic - again very similar to some of their previous collections, especially Mellow. Love the dinosaur stickers though :-)

Boxer - lovely rich colours and again I love the stickers.

Still trying to make up my mind which ones to feature in the shop. They'll be available over the new few weeks so you won't have to wait too long to get your hands on them.

I hope to have the Basic Grey in stock by the end of the month and the Crate Paper is shipping from the US around the middle of March.

Coming up ... the three new Daisy D's Collections, so keep an eye out!

Kids Mini Book Project for Valentine's Day

The February Kids Kit is now available in the shop, priced at €6.50.

This month's project is perfect as a St. Valentine's Day present for a Grandma, Mum, Dad, Auntie or someone special in your child's life and it's a great way to spend an afternoon getting those kids crafting.

You can do the cutting and let the kids do the glueing!

Page 3 of the book is left blank for the kids to doodle or write a personal message to their favourite someone!

The kit includes:

  • a 12" x 12" sheet of Bazzill Lipstick Cardstock
  • a 12" x 12" Scenic Route Loveland Scrap Strip
  • a 12" x 12" sheet of Scenic Route Background Cardstock - White Blue Grid
  • 1 sheet of Doodlebug Loopy Lou Stickers - White
  • a full instruction sheet with colour photos.

    It's a great alternative to a card and is small enough to be carried around as a keepsake. It's also sturdy enough stand up and take pride of place on a mantlepiece. Don't delay and make sure you receive yours in time to be ready by February 14th. Just click here to take you through to the shop.
