Sneaky Peep.....

I hope you all had a lovely relaxing Easter! 

April is one of our busiest months this year! We are at shows and running workshops every weekend between this weekend and the 15th of May. This weekend Mr Roo and Nic are heading up to a brand new show for us 

so if you are any where near Gateshead leisure centre please drop by and check they aren't slacking for me!!!! (Only joking I know Nic will be working hard, but Mr Roo.....).

And at the same time I have the pleasure of running workshops at the fabulous Busy Bees Crafts Dabble day in Sheffield.!!! 

There will be three demonstrators Myself, Aly Higginbottom and Toni Dorrock and you get to spend 2 hrs with each of us for more information check out their Facebook group Busy Bees Crafts.

So, I am just putting the finishing to my workshop! Do you want to see???????

Well, we will be playing sorry working with glass paints to create something like these beauties

All I will promise is the ladies (and gents) that attend will have fun, create something fabulous and I guarantee we will get messy!!!!!

More Mini Makes

Wow! What a response we have had to our canvas Mini Make we released a week or so ago! So, thank you to everyone I can't wait to see what you make!

But, as promised I have just finished uploading two more to our website!! 

This time I have card to share, made using Fairy Wings....

And I have also decorated an MDF Heart.

Both of these beauties are now available on our website here.....Mini Make 

Oh and talking of websites, I am in the process of adding all our lovely new products, I am working on Inks at the moment. So, whilst I am updating our website if there is something you are looking for but can not find it please drop me an email kym@craftyroodesigns.co.uk

Also, I am slowly trying to create a Mini Make for each of our stamp sets, so if you have a stamp set and would like to see what Mini Make I can come up with for it, then please leave me a comment or drop me an email, and that stamp set could be next.......

Up-cycling Pen Pots

You might have noticed I have gone a little Alcohol Ink mad at the moment! And this project is no exception!

I needed a pot to display some pens on the stand and I have had a couple of bright pink metal ones rolling around for a while. So, 5 minutes and a box of inks and this is what I came up with....

Then, just as I was finishing putting away the inks I came across a gold one! Well, it would have been rude not to give it a try! I think it was just the ticket to finish these off!

March's Monthly Make

If feels a little weird sat here writing about the fabulous Spring stamp set we have for March when the weather we have had today has been forever changing!

(And Little Lady true to form, decided today was the day she would drag her school shorts out of the wardrobe, as "It is Spring you know mummy!" and wear them to school granted three out of the four pairs went on the too small pile but she was determined! So today in the snow she wore her shorts!!! In complete contrast Little Man has spent the day finding blankets to snuggle under! Chalk and cheese has nothing on those too!)

So, what "Springs" to mind when you think of Spring......

For me it is Tulips, big bold red Tulips all standing tall celebrating Spring! Every year I plant a few more bulbs hoping that this will be the year that I finally get a couple that come up. So, this year they will work, because I will stamp them instead....

Fabulous hey?

Sue has (as always!) come up with three different ways to use your Make It Kit.

And I have been playing with our new glass paints, which will be available on our website soon!

So if you would like to find out more about our Monthly Make then please visit our website.
