I have been having a field day as I unpack all the boxes that have been coming in, while the ‘girls’ have been extremely busy arranging and re-arranging to fit it all onto the shelves. Kasey has officially banned me from getting anymore A4 paper, while Rebecca groans when I say there is more paper (then asks what size it is). There are some really beautiful things that have arrived (including more paper, he he), lots of stickers and embelishments and some of the Cuttlebug items have also arrived.
A large order from Kidson Craft also arrived the other day, which included a large number of EK Success punches, including the retro flower, if you had one ordered, or got in early, you were lucky – the rest have all gone……wow, so if you would like one, let us know and we will add you onto the next order form. We have however got lots of other punches for you to choose from.
For those of you who have been looking for keys and buckles, we now also have plenty of those for you to choose from.
We also have in store now a wonderful selection of envelope seals for you to choose from for that special occassion, from weddings, christenings, birthdays, anniversaries or other special times.

I had to make a quick card today for a hello to a friend. I was itching to use my new clear Autumn Leaves flower stamps, so went to work on some cheap copy paper and width ways ripped through the images from one end to the other. Then I stamped the same images on patterned paper (mine might have ended up a bit dark in pattern – oh well you learn from your mistakes!) and then matched the two up as shown in the photos, attaching with double sided tape. I then added an extra couple of layers or mats from matching cardstocks and finished with a buckle punched from the EK Success range and threaded ribbon!.The last touch, staple at ribbon ends for a quick, raw, neat but funky finish!

I couldn’t resist a play today with my new stash of prima ribbons rolls. The brown and olives reminded me of very natural and clean lines and once I laid my eyes on the 3D leaf embellishments from EK Success that I had stashed in my work room, it didn’t take long for the images of cards I wanted to create to come to life.
I must admit to a fetish for square cards and find myself being more creative as the size gives opportunity to leave the wide open spaces I like. This draws the eye to certain elements depending on where you add your pieces. I hardly ever work on the base card for fear of making a mistake that can’t be rectified. Instead I create seperate pieces that can be placed in a multitude of ways depending on the look you want to achieve. Hope you enjoy them! They will be in store as of tomorrow if you want to see them in the flesh and of course we have all the great bits and pieces you need to create them. If you would like a list of products used please send us an email email@example.com with the subject line LEAF CARDS PRODUCT LIST and we will email you details of the stamps, ribbons etc. Rubber Hugs Elaine
