and the award goes to ...

me!!! for being the worst blogger of the month!!!

Sorry guys, I wholeheartedly promise to be a much better June Blogger!!

I said in my last post (I think) that I would come back and talk to you about the Card Candy so here I am (at last).

In essence Card Candy is small round pieces of cardstock all cut to identical size in various colours, the beauty of this product is the way they are cut, shaped in a way they have that "brad" look about them - without the split pin at the back. All of the packs contain 3 co-ordinating colours.

On of my favourites is ...

In this pack you get ritzy purple pearlescent, metalic purple and metalic silver as I say they are all cardstock circles that are approx 10mm diameter you can attach using foam pads or silicone glue with each pack containing approx 10g.  All of this for just £1.55 - I have to say they are brilliant!!!

Another gorgeous one - where would Bee Crafty be without a ...

The colours in this pack are gold, super gold and cognac...stunning!!!

You can find the range on our Website by clicking here.

Again many apologies for going AWOL - promise I'll have some new things for you soon!

Take care

So who missed it?

Evening all

I was just wondering if there was anyone who wanted to come on Saturday but missed it or if anyone wondered what on earth Wild Rose stamps were!!!

Well these are just 4 of the range we have at Bee Crafty and I have to say I couldn't pick my favourite out of this 4 let alone the entire range!!!

Fairy Kira, Kira, Kira with Kitten and Kira with Flowers

Aren't they fabulous!

I have to say the quality of these is brilliant, we have had our best success with these using the Versafine we use Onyx Black but the Smokey Grey is also brilliant for the outline.

For colouring we use the ProMarkers that brilliant finish they give is in my opinion - The Best!  I think we all have to find our own way with colouring but so far (and I have A LOT of pens) these are my favourite.

You can find the range of Wild Rose products by clicking here.

I'm off to play with my new Wild Rose papers now that I nabbed today - oh and some card candy - I'll chat to you about that later in the week.

Hope you are well everyone

Back in the zone!

Hiya everyone!!!

How the devil are you - it's been nearly a week and I have to be honest I was starting to get withdrawal symptoms. 

Well last week we took a shop facility to a scrapbooking retreat and it was great fun - which is why I have dissapeared - mainly as I took some scrapbooking gear with me and had a fun few days - I'll get some pics soon. 

Tonight I had a go at another page and here's what I did

I love it!!!

And yes - you guessed it I cut around all of the swirls!!! and adhered them to opposing corners

Then simply layered the photo onto the center of the swirled page and tucked it into the larger flourish and added the title of my choice

Isn't he cute?

Ok something else to tell you about if you hadn't already seen

Hope you are all well

Am I the only one...

who forgets what day of the week it is after a bank holiday?

Several times today I have been at an absolute loss for where we are in the week.  It always happens after a bank holiday - makes me dozy!!

It's been a busy day today - we are providing a shop facility for a Scrapbooking retreat over the next 3 days.  The shop is still very much Open also so it's a busy time for us just now. 

I am hoping over the next few days that I might be able to do some projects but you never know so I won't promise but I'd like to have a go at a couple of scrapbook pages,maybe a chipboard something and who knows!

Well this is a nice short one tonight as there is much to do!

lists lists lists!!!

Hey everyone how you doing.

Well just a nice quicky project tonight - something that you can do quickly but well and is great as a gift for any occasion - mainly because you can make it as over the top or as simple as necesarry.

A cheeky little notebook!!!

So I took a notebook - the way to do this works no matter what size.

picked a sheet of pretty paper and drew around the cover and then cut that out

I decided to go for the Papermania range
ok so next I used a pencil to dot through where the spiral holes were

then punch them out with a cropodile or any smaller hole punch and then scissor from the top of the piece into the hole - this will then allowe them to slot over the spiral

I added a piece of organza ribbon with a knot on one side

Lastly there was the addition of a chipboard letter - I chose J as it's my mums initial and she is a serial list maker!!!!

Hope you like it guys

Marvellous Monday?

Hiya everyone

How are we all? well I hope? 

I haven't got a project today - mainly because I had a day off!!!  But what I thought I might have a quick chat about is the COMPETITION

Now we haven't finalised the details yet (things like this take a bit of planning) but what I can tell you is that you will need to come up with a project of some sort (card, scrapbook page, altered item) so you might want to get your thinking caps on for that.

What you will also need is something not "generally" used in papercrafting (eco friendly maybe)

In return you have the chance to win a prize from the shop

Now there are no dates to give you at the moment (we have the shop to run and are also taking the shop to another event this week) but when we say go (next week sometime) be ready!!!

Hope that was a taster of what you will need to do and has tickled your tastebuds for the chance to win a fab prize!!!

Super Sunday!!!

Evening all

Well today was our Sunday crop of the month and we had a busy day - I only managed one project and this is it...
Now as always it doesn't have a purpose - it's just pretty!!!
So here's how it went - I was talking to one of our customers Mandy (nice to see you today!) and she was having some ribbon and there were 2 reels left over so we decided we would make something out of them
1 Ribbon Reel

A sheet of the Bo Bunny Sophie Range I decided on the stripe paper drew around the reel and then cut it out

So I mounted it on top with D/S tape and punched 2 holes in either side of one end and threaded some ribbon through as the hanger
With the paper that was left I cut 3 different size rectangles and placed them at different parts over the hanger

Next - the rule of 3 - using the card candy circles

lastly it needed some words
so I decided to have a look for a phrase that I thought was suitable
and this is what I found...

I mounted it onto some co-ordinating cardstock and added a layered flower and this was it done!!!

Love this paper!!! Loved doing this!!! Oh I nearly forgot the edges were all rubbed with purple ink!!!

Hope you're ok

Late on May Day mutterings...

Hi Everyone

Sorry it's a bit late on but I made it and here I am!

I managed to sneak myself some of the new Persuasuion papers by Bo Bunny home from the shop last week.  As promised I said I would bring you some more projects through May and here is a nice easy one to start.  This is one that's been about some time now and we have and still do this as a workshop.

the Post-it Holder! Perfect for noting down the things we need to get from shopping or when we go out to look for that particular ribbon we got at our favourite craft shop!!! chuck this in your bag and away you go!
So I started out with this little pile
Some post it notes, a sheet of the Bo Bunny Persuasion dots and a sheet of pearlescent card for the skeleton of the holder.
First job (this is dependant of how big your post it's are!) score and fold the card so that it will comfortable surround your post its.
Then using a corner round punch do each corner - I just think it looks better - you can decide this though
Then size up your persuasion dots to cover the 2 front sections that will overlap
and round the same corners so that they will fit nicely onto the skeleton card
I have then added a magnet as my fastening - you could use velcro instead though
lastly I have used a piece of the sticker sheet from this range to add the green border and then a pink button from the Bee Crafty Button mix Reds and pinks there are other colours available here

And thats it there you have it a little post it holder - not just good for the handbag - these make great little gifts.
Hope you are all well

Take care
