Check out Keisha's blog for card inspiration with Die-namics!I

We've been massive fans of Keisha Campbell's blog, A Bit East-Coast for many years and she never fails to inspire us with her crisp,clean, original designs.  She's currently using lots of the new Die-namics dies to create some stunning cards and we thought we'd show you a few.

We're excited to announce that from the end of the month we'll be stocking a great range of the Die-namics Dies. These steel dies will cut through cardstock, thin chipboard, 1/4 inch cork, felt, acetate, sticky back canvas, fabric, denim, sandpaper, 2mm craft foam, wood veneer paper, photo magnet sheets, and much more! They work with virtually any die-cutting machine that will accommodate wafer-thin dies and we know you're going to love them!

Simple Stories Inspiration!

We're huge fans of Simple Stories products here at so if you're looking for some inspiration check out their current projects over on the Simple Stories Blog.  They've teamed up with the fantastic sketch site Page Maps for a week and each day they'll post up a sketch and a corresponding layout to show you how you can interpret the sketch.

If you're new to scrapbooking or even if you've been papercrafting for years and are feeling low on inspiration then sketches can really revive your creativity.  You simply take a look at the sketch, grab a bunch of your favourite supplies and then decide if you want to literally interpret the sketch or use it loosely inspire you.  Go on, we challenge you, get over to the SS blog and get scrapping!
