More CAS

Time for a little mid month inspiration from the DT and a reminder about this months theme which is CAS - Clean and Simple...........we always assume everyone knows what we are talking about but when I received a mail the other day asking for an explanation, I realised new people are starting out into crafting ever day so sometimes it's good to clarify.

I always leave it totally open as to which of the girls does a mid month piece and they tend to take it in turns, but as you will see every one of them has created a card this time round so I am thinking they are all getting a liking for CAS......thank you girls, you are all gems.

June challenge

Hello to you all, time for our June challenge and this month our theme is.......................


Yes, we are going for a clean and simple look this month, I know some crafters find it a toughie, me included as it's always so easy to think we need just a little bit more to our cards. As always you can make anything you like providing the focal element is a hand stamped image, sentiment or PB Stickeroo, but you can use any make of stamp but  no digi images and any entries using them will be discounted from our prize draws.

Lots of wonderful sponsors and prizes as always and this month we are pleased to welcome two new a new sponsors....................

Stamp Addicts who are offering a £10 gift voucher to spend either on line or in their Bedford shop. Either way you will have a wide choice of crafting goodies and stamps including their own range of unmounted stamps which regularly feature on Create and Craft TV.

All that Scraps are offering a $15 on line spend and you will have a wide choice of crafting products from design papers to stamps and more.
