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.


  1. Sounds as though you are in for a busy time!! Love the cards

  2. Looking forward to watching.

  3. I love your cards, i will be watching too x

  4. Your cards are great and i'll be watching too x

  5. Thanks for your support ladies, it's much appreciated. Yes, going to be super busy but will be back to report all here on my new blog.

    Happy Crafting xx

  6. Ah-ha found you. Fabulous cards - thanks from pulling me from the cup today in the Cricut show - sorry I forgot your name xxx

  7. Lovely cards Mel, was watching you this morning on C & C with the Expression saying which machines you have. I do hope you were hinting about the Expression2 which is launching tomorrow in the US. I have a create but really want a 12x12 machine. I'm so torn between a computer based cutter or an expression. I'd love to stay with Cricut so that I can use all my cartridges. Here's hoping Provocraft will send it over to C & C. xxsue

  8. i would loveto do a class on the expression are there any planned and how can i book?

  9. Hello Rachel and James
    Yes I will be launching the new Expression 2 on the 24th of May. It is a fabulous new LIMITED addition to the Cricut family and it takes the Imagine cartridges and is also compatible with the Gypsy. I would honestly advise you towards the Cricut rather than a computer linkes machine as the Cricut is portable and I feel easier to use. This is the feedback I have had over the past five years. James, if you contact Inspirations in Preston they will be able to put your contact on their class list for any future Cricut classes.
    Thank you all for your comments and I will give you all a wave when I go back on air this Thursday.

  10. Mel, thank you so much for sharing your knowledge with us all on Create and Craft. I learn something new every time you are on. You are a true inspiration and extremely talented. Love the fact that you tell it like it is too. Bought the Imagine as the POTW, can't wait for it to arrive. :)
