Hero Arts Stock (and more) is In

Very very excited now the first boxes of Christmas stuff started coming in today. All new Hero Arts. (if you commented to get the catalogues, please email me as I am not sure who all of you are?) I have also started unpacking 4 fabulous boxes from RedhotBed which are just the best for those giant stunning, but quick and easy christmas cards.
Don't forget that Phil will be showing us all the goodies at our demo day on 5th of September.
More soon

Where has August gone??

... hard to believe it is the last week before back to school.

Was trying to upload the photos from the cocktail evening but blogger is not letting me.
Ye will just have to go over to Facebook to see some of them.

That's it for now - making a run for it before blogger crashes again

Been doing some naughty (but nice) shopping for the shop

Hi Kerry here,
Just wanted to drop by and tell you that in between working hard at getting everything ready for the exciting launch of the class lists for the Great Big Craft Extravaganza, I have also managed to do some buying.
Bought lots of nice goodies for the sale (more about that on Monday), but I also bought some v. v. nice new Hero Arts stamps. The Winter Supplement is out and it is lovely - the creative brain in working in overdrive. Lookout for the pre-buys on the site. We have some Christmas catalogues coming in, and they will be available to order (at a minimal cost), but for followers of the blog, I am giving away a few postage and cost free. Comment on this mail (the first 5) and I will post you your own set free.
I have also bought some new Christmas Teddy Bear things from Crafters Companion that haven't been launched and I am not allowed to talk about - so watch the space for them too.

Challenge winner & details of new challenge.

Hi there,

Can you believe it is August already - you would be forgiven for thinking it was March with the weather we are having!!

Anyway, down to important crafty business.

The winner of the masculine challenge was entry No. 4 - the lovely motorbike was created from scratch (no template!!) by Claudia Short. Well done Claudia.

The next challenge theme is Floral. Again any kind of project - card, layout, book etc.
Prize is a Floral pack - 6 packs of silk and chiffon flowers, Floral papers, floral embellishments, ribbon etc.

Closing date for this challenge is Saturday 15th September - should leave you with a little time to get your GBCE challenges done as well.

Back soon
