Some Cards made with Forever Florals

Well, Forever Florals went up for pre-order yesterday and we got so many orders for it, it was unreal! It's a great Double CD Set with over 2000 printable sheets! Great for making your own hand-made flowers (extremely on-trend at the moment!).

Here are a few cards made by one of our design team members, Sue Hickey.

And a few cards/projects made by Carol!

Get Well Soon

I'm sorry for not updating much, it's just a bit of a whirlwind here (I know, I say it every time!)
Here are a couple of Get well soon cards I made for my Mum. She had an operation a couple of days ago but she's feeling a lot better luckily!

The papers on the card below are from the upcoming CD Forever Florals - due for release 1 week from today at the NMM Birmingham show. It's also going to be available online then too!

The buttons and leaves are all cut out with our new CD 'Cuttables' which is designed especially for use with the CraftROBO.

On the card to the right, I used the Fly-by Butterflies papers, some swirls and a heart doily from the Cuttables CD Rom and a little text tab to finish it off! Still loving those pearls too - We did have some but they flew out and I can't say when they'll be returning unfortunately!

Hope you like the cards!
See you soon,

A New Tutorial from our lovely Sue Hickey!

We asked Sue to write us a tutorial of how to get an image onto a candle - the ones that Sue makes are stunning! A special thank you to her for doing this for us, I'm sure you'll all appreciate it!
This is the sort of thing you could create:

Here's how you do it!:

You will need:
Image of you choice
Tissue paper
Plain paper
Heat Gun

1..                Print an image onto Tissue paper
2..                ( I stick tissue paper to a piece of A4 paper first just one end)
3..                Cut round the image as close as possible
4..                Lay image on candle place a piece of parchment paper all round the candle to hold image in place ( you can, I have been told, use wax paper but I've not tried it) make sure the parchment is long enough to go all round the candle so you have some to hold at back of candle( this helps to stop hands getting hot)
5..                Then heat the image carefully you will see when the image is ready (don't hold heat gun to   close to candle) and not to long in one place
6..                Remove parchment carefully and slowly
7..                One image on Candle - Enjoy!

PLEASE NOTE: If you are selling your candles make sure to put 'For decorative purposes ONLY'
