Monthly Make: January 2016!

So, it's our first Monthly Make of 2016 and I hope you love it as much as us!

First some house keeping! As promised I have now got it so we can do subscriptions to our Monthly Make! Cool Hey! So now we can offer either a 3, 6 or 12 month subscription, if you want any more information please check out the website here.

Anyway back to this month we have a beautiful butterfly and sentiment stamp set. The butterfly is a great size and you can make great creations in no time.

Sue as always has come up with some stunning creations, and below are the three ideas for using the card/embellishments included in the set.

And I have played with paint to create the frame below.

Monthly Make: December 2015

So here they all are! And if you would like the step by Step instructions on how these were made then just Click on the like above the photo and you will be whisked off to Sue's blog for all the details.

Wow, what a year 2015 was. A year full of highs and lows! I know it is a little late to be reflecting on 2015, 4 days into 2016, but, it's always good to know where you have been!

Last year we attended more shows than ever, and we have got to meet and chat to so many of you which is always lovely to do. And as most of you know by now I love good jibber jabber! The best part of being out and about is always seeing what you have made using our stamps! 

We also ran more workshops than I care to think about, but every single time people created beautiful items! And if people leave our workshops happy then we have done our job!

We have had our moments too, being stuck in traffic mile after mile, closed roads, you name it. My poor sister has been subjected to too many hours of my driving and singing, I am sure I should have got her ear plugs for Christmas! Though, on the really early starts she does have a tendency to nod off for a couple of hours and she can rattle the windows with the best of them! So I guess we are even - well may be! But most of the time the tough bits have created some of the best belly laughing moments, people in the cars next to us must really wonder what we are up to!

In August we finally launched our Monthly Makes and from the feedback, you are all loving then as much as we do! Sue has done a stunning job creating samples and step by step guides in 2015 and she has agreed to continue to do so in 2016. We have also launched our Mini Makes, which again are proving to be very popular and we are trying to add to these!

And of course how can we forget Crafty Roo Designs's telly debut. Two hours of live telly! Who would have thought it - what could go wrong? But as always the constant support of our friends and family guided us through!
