Happy New Year

I hope everyone has had a lovely Christmas and New Year. Our Christmas was hectic but fun, however, so far 2011 is testing us - a blocked drain, several more inches of snow, broaband failure and a flat tyre so far and we haven't even got through the first week! Anyway lots to look forward to, like sunshine, new releases from our favourite manufacturers, sunshine, craft shows, sunshine oh and did I mention the sunshine!
This lovely creation is from Jo Capper-Sandon, she has used the Scrolls Work "Miss Tart" stamp along with paper from the Pink Paislee Parisian Anthology range. These papers have a patterend resist printed in them which means you can use inks, sprays even paints to make incredible backgrounds. The piece is topped off with a spoon from the 7 Gypsies Vintage Hardware set.

Gillian Simson has made this gorgeous "House of Horrors" mini frame and has written a class for us which you can see in our online classes section.
