Up the Garden Path...

...we're putting the focus on our new A5 stamp set 'Up the Garden Path' which has been designed by Steve (he is so pleased with this idea!)


This super set of 12 stamps is such a good idea, you match the path to the occasion and there are 7 extra embellishments included for you to make your own scenes, here is the card featured - bigger:

designed by Donna
and here is a gorgeous 'New Baby' card made with this set, look at the Stork standing on the roof!
designed by Alli
So, all in all a great, original stamp set (thanks Steve) and we love it, so many possibilities.

If you would like to win yourself one, please comment and let us know who's path would you like to walk up and have a cup of tea/coffee with?  I think that I would like to knock on Mary Berry's door and hopefully be greeted by a nice piece of her cake!

We will announce the lucky winner next week sometime x

Hope to see you at the LEIGH Papercraft show this Saturday 01 April xxx

A Little Bit of Christmas .....


It's never too early to start on Christmas projects is it?!  It's Helen here to share a little gift wallet I've made.  It could be used for money or a gift card.

 I've used one of the cute images from the 'Festive Friends' Irresistible Images pack which you can find here on the website.  There's a great selection of these images on the website and they're perfect if you want to make a quick card or project.

Here's a side view of the wallet:


And speaking of Irresistible Images, there will be more great packs on sale on the next Little Claire Designs shows on Hochanda next week:


Don't forget to tune in!

We hope you managed to see our first HOCHANDA show...

...and if you did, we hope you enjoyed it.  Steve did so well (despite being very nervous) and good news - we have been asked back!
Monday 20 March - 2 shows in one day - 2pm and 5pm - hope you can watch it, we will have lots of NEW goodies for Steve to demo, we are so excited to show you our new products on the day.

Here's a second look at some of the demo's from the day (Steve didn't get to do them all):

This card was made with our Floral Border Outline Sticker and paper from our new Citrus Paper Pack and the card below was also made with papers from our Citrus Paper Pack and Vehicles Outline Sticker. 
Cards like these show you just what you can do with our Outline Stickers, so versatile and you wouldn't know that the image hasn't been stamped (great value too)


and this cute little piggie card is made with one of the piggie stamps from our new Piggies stamp set and the papers from our Cute Piggies Collection Toppers and Papers Pack



We've also had 2 of our cards featured in Crafts Beautiful magazine this month:






And this weekend you can see us this weekend at the following shows:






Birmingham National Motorcycle Museum, Solihull, Birmingham (Opp NEC) Free Parking
Saturday 11 Feb

Stevenage Arts and Leisure Centre, SG1 1LZ - Stamparama

We had a fabulous day on Saturday...

...with a class in the morning and another (different class) in the afternoon! We all had a wonderful time, lots of fun, lots of chocolate and cake, lots of drinks and most importantly - lots of cards!
Here's a small selection of what we made, not everything by any means...

Look at this card above, would you believe that it is made using a sticker?  Made with our Outline Stickers, VW and papers from our new Citrus Paper Pack, this card design was a firm favourite...

and we made this with our Dinkie up, up and away stamp, love the little clouds and this:

with our 3D Butterfly stamp and here's our Dinkie Balancing Act card:

We can't show you anymore cards because we used lots of NEW stamps on Saturday and you will have to wait to see these! 
If you would like to receive one of our free postal newsletters which we are beginning to post out this week, just send you name and address to Gillian and we will add you to the list.

See our web for details of our next class and you can see Steve with lots of our goodies this Sunday, 27 November at Taunton, Junction 24 Market Way North Petherton Somerset, TA6 6DF
