I'm back!

Whats that saying about catching yourself going backwards! 

We have so much going on here at Crafty Roo HQ the question is where to start....

Well, we are going to be back on the telly box soon! The 21st July to be exact, which is a whole 28 days or 672 hour (ish!) away but who's counting. Hochanda have asked us back again for 2 hours of crafty "messy-ness". So I have been busy working hard on some new designs and have tweaked a couple of your favorites and we have 6 new A5 sets! I can't wait to start on the samples.....

We also have a new Design Team Member  - Jean!!!! 

I would have posted a photo but she would probably shout! Anyway, for those of you who don't know the lovely Jean she is an exceptionally talented lady who has been in and around the craft industry for many years! She has run her own craft business Busy Bee Crafts until we took over at Christmas. And still runs weekly classes and bi-monthly dabble days. She is always there for me and seems to know if its a kick up the bum I need or a pep talk! You get the picture she is fab!!!

Here is a couple of cards she has whipped up using this months Monthly Make.

She has done loads more which I will share once I figure out how to get the pictures off my phone!!!!

There is loads of other news too but that will have to wait for another day.....

June's Monthly Make

Wow, we have been enjoying some very nice weather this past two weeks and whats even more shocking Little Lady has been on school holidays too! But it was back to school today and only 5 more weeks and it will be the big school holiday! How did that happen?

With end of school in mind June's Monthly Make is saying "Thank you for helping me grow..." this year more than ever we are incredibly grateful to Little Lady's teacher and school. As most of you are aware Little Lady was having an extremely difficult time at the beginning of this school year which resulted in us moving schools. It wasn't a decision we took lightly nor did we ever expect to have to make. But, as those of you who saw or spoke to Little Lady around Christmas will know how much the situation was affecting her emotionally and physically, IT HAD TO STOP!

So on the 1st of Feb (after a lightening speed transfer) Little Lady moved schools and by the end of that first week we had our happy, confident, cheeky Little Lady back! Her new school had done exactly what they had promised, which was to make her feel safe and make her whole again! So this set was designed with those fabulous ladies in mind, the ladies that helped our Little Lady grow....

This month sue has come up with 3 different card designs using the Make it Kit, each one can be made using the Thank you sentiment or just the plain stem (well it's not that plain!).

And I went all out making gift ideas
