Exciting news...

Hello Crafters..

Back in the office today after a hectic week at Create and Craft. Playing with one of our new aquisitions today, Hot Off The Press. This takes me back to the beginning of my papercrafting addiction. I am really excited about this line as the designs and quality are fantastic and their templates look great too, so watch this space. We have even more exciting news this week too. We have acquired the Stampavie range which includes the adorable Sarah Kay line. I am soooooo excited by this opportunity and once my demo samples arrive I will be locked away for a few days colouring in.  I will put the Copic pen colours on my blog for all the projects so you too can enjoy this fab pastime. It's a tough job, but somebody has to do it!!! lol!
Also got Kaiser Craft product in our portfolio and I have a sample of a set of drawers to make up too. Looks like I am going to be kept very busy over the next few weeks.

I am back off to Create and Craft on Saturday to guest on Sunday and Monday shows for Provocraft and Hunkydory so it is going to be another hectic weekend but it keeps me out of mischief!!

Don't forget that if you want any advice on our product ranges or any video demos doing just contact me through the blog.

Hope you all have a fabulous Easter and I will keep you up to date with all my crafty projects.

I have added the projects I did for the men in our life underneath. They are very simple but effective and I simply used the Bo Bunny Timepiece card kit. This gives you all the product you need and step by step instructions.

Top Tip; Ink the edges of your paper pieces before making your cards. It adds definition to your work and gives a lovely proffesional look to your cards.

Hope you like them as much as I do. If you would like details of where you can buy the product from please do not hesitate to contact us.

Back to blogging...

Good morning crafters,

It seems like a long time since I have posted anything on a blog but I am back and raring to go! I have chosen the name “PAPER DREAMS” for my new blog which kind of sums me up. Not only do I work with fabulous paper products every day but I dream about them too and it's not unusual for me to wake up in the middle of the night and sketch a  design out for a new project!

As some of you may be aware I have been back on Create and Craft recently with the Cricut and Cuttlebug and have had some fabulous feedback. I will be back on now as a regular guest and I am very excited at the prospect of being able to share my ideas on a larger scale.  I will be continuing with my classes too and all the dates for both the TV and classes will be posted on my blog along with previews of kits that are to appear on Create and Craft.

I am going to start work on some Fathers’ Day projects using the fabulous “Timepiece” collection from Bo Bunny. I am going to do quick,easy but effective cards using the card kit and a stunning Pocketwatch Edgy Album. So WATCH this space!!!

We will also be holding  question and answer sessions on our Facebook page. You will be able to email in and ask questions about your favourite Bramwell product. Also we will be running  regular competitions with fab prizes including the chance to visit us here in Blackburn for a day of crafting with me.

Ok well I am off now to start playing with my new product. It’s a tough job but someone has to do it!!!!

See you soon

Melanie xxx
