A fluttering of butterflies

My new initiative in the shop is to put these sweet little butterflies up on anything new that comes into the shop. I dont think it shows in the picture but they are a gorgeous lime green colour. So if you pop into the shop, be sure to look out for all the fluttering butterflies!
The Butterflies are *surprise surprise* cut out on the cuttlebug, its a new die we've just got in, and it comes with 4 embossing folders that go with it. I keep getting it out to play with!
More on the butterflies tomorrow....

A Fiesta of Siesta!!

Yesterday we had yet another delivery of Siesta Grids. They fly off the wall as soon as I put them out, but for today at least we have the whole range hanging there so I thought I'd take a piccy of them altogether!
Some of them spend so little time hanging there I thought they were new designs when they arrived. So if you want some, dont hang around ;)

Last night, the very first Isle of Wight Knit and Natter...I was so nervous! But it was ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT and a TOTAL SUCCESS!

There were 10 of us in total and it felt like we had known each other for ages. We admired each others knitting and shared ideas...cant wait till the next one!

Twisted Pyramid Decoupage using Cuttlebug

I thought I'd share with you some cards that I made for my cousins and auntie. They came over to visit us all the way from Venezuela (thats in South America btw) and my Gran wanted to give them something to take back with them, so a little commission came my way.

I used the new stack-its that we had come in, they are a very nifty way to create cards. You get the effect of 3D decoupage but instead of fiddly cutting out you can trim the squares up on your guillotine. Something we have also found out is that although the pictures are numbered from 1 to 10 on the sheet, you can create 2 separate cards simply by stacking all the odd numbers together and all the even numbers together. This is especially good because we are always conscious of postage costs these days!!!

For the background I whipped out the cuttlebug (I dont need much of an excuse to get it out!!!) and used the embossing folders. Its just so simple! I love it, and so did my Gran!!

New Knit and Natter Night

Phew! I've been so busy lately, I haven't had a moment to come on here, but I've made a new resolution to try and come on here regularly

So, whats happening...

This morning, in between every other job I've been decorating up a little box for a man to give as a keepsake to a new baby boy. I was quite pleased with it in the end, especially as I was against the clock as it didnt give me much time!!

A bit of news.. My friend Rachel and I have been organising a Knit and Natter Night the first one is going to be Monday 7th July at 7pm and its being held upstairs in Joe's Newport....should be fun! Just bring your knitting or crochet along. There's no charge but we'll have to buy a few drinks to be allowed to use Joe's.
