Spring is springing on Sunday!

Posted on

Well we survived! Christmas and New Year’s Eve are all done with for another year. Whatever you did I hope you enjoyed the festivities in whatever way you choose to. I’m really looking forward to getting back to C&C towers this weekend and it looks like we’re getting an early spring with the fabulous Meryl! I just had to give you a sneak peek of these stunning flowers that she has made – aren’t they incredible?

Join Meryl and Nigel at 7pm on Create and Craft to see just how it’s all done – I can’t wait!

Happy Monday to you!

Posted on

Hi crafters, I just wanted to share a picture with you this frosty Monday morning. I came downstairs and found this little treasure at full stretch on the edge of her bed having a huuuugggeee yawn. When she saw me get my phone out to take a picture she decided to ‘strike a pose’ for me! So happy Monday from me and Betty, I hope you all have a great week xx

Not a happy bunny today!

Posted on

Good afternoon everyone, well I hope you’re having a good day– mine is not so good! I have woken up with very little voice, in fact pretty much none at all. Whilst Karl, Grace, Betty & Barney may be quite happy / amused by this it unfortunately means that I won’t be able to join Nancy for our Little Monsters shows tomorrow – mind you I do sound a bit monstery right now myself!

I hope you will still tune in to watch Nancy’s demos because they are amazing and the samples are beautiful. Let me know what you think of the dies, I will be watching along with you.

Sending out a crafty hug to everyone else who needs one today x

What are your Little Monsters doing this weekend?

Posted on

So it’s halloween this weekend, we don’t tend to do much for it as Karl’s daughters are all grown up and living elsewhere but it doesn’t mean that I don’t like to do a bit of crafting for it! Have you seen the free downloads on the website? We still have last year’s available and there is an all new one for 2014 too! You can find them by heading to and searching for Halloween.

Now for some Little Monsters of a whole different variety! On Saturday Nancy and I will be launching our new baby range of Tattered Lace dies, tune in to Create & Craft at 10am, 4pm and 7 pm to see the stunning samples that the design team have created but in the meantime here is a little sneaky peek of some samples that the design team have come up with…

Starlight, Star Bright….

Posted on

Good morning everyone, I hope you all had a lovely weekend doing whatever you enjoy most with the people you adore.

Have you seen our new Starlight dies yet? Nancy launched them a couple of hours ago and the show was, what can only be described as, crazy busy! If you haven’t managed to catch the show yet Nancy is back on at 2pm and 7pm tonight. We also have an incredible new addition to the Tattered Lace Creative Team – Jo Channon has joined us and is doing a 6pm show tomorrow with the Starlight dies – I can’t wait to see her interpretation of them! Anyway, best get back to work! Here are some of my favourite cards to whet your appetite:

Got to share this card!

Posted on

Hi all, just a really quick post to share this card with you. I think it is one of my favourites ever! Anna has made it using one of the sentiment plaques from our new Starlight collection which is is just gorgeous on it’s own but when coupled with other new dies including the Elegant Over The Edge and it’s Edger die from the same range the results are quite simply…..queue my favourite word….stunning! What do you think?

Where’s my daddy?

Posted on

I just had to share this picture with you! Karl popped out earlier and as soon as he drove off Betty assumed her usual position waiting for him. She doesn’t jump up to sit on the windowsill (I think that’s because it’s Grace’s favourite seat and Grace is bigger then Betty!) she leans on it to look out of the window!

Isn’t she adorable?
