Stock Update
NEW Green Tara Goodness

Hi everyone, thanks for dropping by.
Today we received a big order of gorgeous
Green Tara flowers.

They have lots of new colours in their range.

So guess what I have been doing all afternoon?
Yes you guessed it. I have been making up these
fabulous "Concept Packs".

These Concept Packs were originally my idea.
I thought it was a great way for our customers to purchase
flowers. I have actually "concepted" them for you.
Over at Green Tara they are just sooo busy they only have time to
make these in a limited range.
So I just put these together myself.
They have a little bit of this & a little bit of that in them.
I'm sure you get the idea!!!

We have also received stock of the NEW colours of the  "Heirloom"
flowers & they now have them in Minis  too.
Loooove these. So nice.

Why don't you pop over to the Green Tara blog,
click HERE.
The NEW Design Team officially starts on 1st October & there
is some very talented girls on the team,
so the blog is always full of great ideas.
Well worth "bookmarking" this one.

Well that all for today.  Stay tuned.
Cheers Di  xo

Just a Little Share....

Today I wanted to show you a couple of pages that some of our 
students have done in class recently.
This one was done by Vickie Austin & it is
of her son Dane. He was working in 
Canada in the snowfields at the time.
Great travel layout.
Beautifully put together Vickie.

Next up this lovely layout was done in a class by another
of our students, Donna Andrews.
Such a lovely photo of both of you Donna &
what better way to showcase it.

Such lovely colours. So summery.
Love all those lovely layers & textures too.
 Great job Donna.

Every now & then I just like to showcase some of our students work.
We have so many girls come to us for classes

I think everyone deserves a moment in the spotlight.

 Hi everyone. Sorry I have been "MIA" (missing in action) for the last week but I have been 
really sick with the flu, hasn't everyone!!!
Today I just wanted to share the link over the the 2 Crafty blog, 
click HERE.
They have got some incredible talent over there & what the Design Team 
doesn't do with chipboard, isn't worth knowing

Here is just one example.
This gorgeous layout was done by Design Team member,
Kelly Foster. This girl is sooooo super talented.

Here is yet another example done by another one of the 
2 Crafty chipboard Design Team members, Linda Eggleton.
How Linda makes over  her chipboard is
always so inspiring. She is such an artist.

Another example using  2 Crafty chipboard. This one was done
by 2 Crafty Chipboard Design Team Member,
Chantal Vandenberg.
Chantal always does such wonderful fun & colourful pages.
Always love her work.

This page was done by 2 Crafty Design Team member, Elena Olineevich.
Elena is just soooo arty & her work is always so inspiring to perhaps change
things up a little. She is always doing incredible things with her chipboard.

These are just a few of the examples you will find over on the 
2 Crafty blog, click  HERE.
