Wet Wednesday


Can I just firstly point out I am fed up of the rain already so if someone could sort that out for me then that would be fantastic!!!

Today we were busy packing orders this morning - nice to see you getting the benefit of the lower postage rates at the moment. the nice thing is having customers so far and wide - long way up and a long way down.

Whilst I was in the scrapbooking area of the shop this morning I had a good look at the DCWV Spring Stack - its gorgeous!!! lots of pinks and lemons - very sherbetty (if that's a word) almost edible - I think because it comes in all the sizes (as with all of the stacks made by DCWV) it just makes it available to everyone in the paper crafting hobby i.e card makers and scrapbookers. I think that can often be a misconception - scrapbooking papers are for scrapbooking .....and so on and so forth. I think nowadays the wonderful papers and cards on the market these days are useable for all sorts of papercraft - no limits as it were.

The other thing we have (as a team) been looking at and using the last couple of days are the Woodware unmounted stamps. These are sheets of clear unmounted stamps that used in conjunction with an acrylic block and coupled with heat embossing/watercolours and various other mediums create wonderful images. Obviously with them being clear they have the benefit of seeing where you are stamping. They consistently give a crisp and clear image with clear lines for colouring and embellishing. The other benefit is being able to use the word stamps in this range for bending round any corners or apertures you may be working with.

Well that's me for another day - hope your all doing something crafty

take care
