Well June has been an amazing month!!

Well they say time flies while you are having fun and that is the truth....June has been and gone. In a nut shell - We started our Wednesday night classes, we had 4 Create and Craft shows with some amazing new products, we had another brilliant all day workshop and for my birthday I got 3 adorable chickens!!

I am loving teaching in our purpose built classroom, we even have an over head camera making demonstrating so much easier....I am so excited about what I want to teach I have planned my classes right up to November, and also we will be holding a "Create Away Day" once a month, when you will get to play with all things, inky and mica, embossing and stamping and make 4 projects. Just pop over to CleverCut to book your places.

"That Special Touch" is becoming a more amazing product range all the time, with the amazing sprays and masks already proving popular and we have soo much more up our sleeves!! This beautiful card is made using the sprays to create the background and then using the delicate feather mask as an embossing stencil. Being plastic simply pop them through your Big Shot or Cuttlebug like a brass stencil and admire the effect!! The embossing combined with the shimmer of the mica is stunning and plays with the light in ways photo's really don't do justice!

Another new product I have had a lot of fun with has been the dimensional flower set of templates. This handy set allows you to create truly special 3d flowers for your projects, and with a flower pot, a polystyrene ball, a bit of dowel and some pins, plus an assortment of scraps of paper and you can create this adorable topiary tree, change the colour with the change of season!!
I am looking forward to July with some great things planned. If you are passing by Leicestershire/Northamptonshire why not pop in to our shop and have a nosey you are always welcome. Until then I am off to add numerous new items to the website...


  1. Love the cards. I forgot that you can use the stencils in the big shot, I will give that a go at the weekend. And you were right everybody does need to try mica mist :)

  2. Ali these are all stunning .
    I love the way you craft so I am following Hugs Elaine
