Whats in the Box?

Hello Crafters,
Well, thank gosh its Friday hey! Its been one of those weeks that has just flown by! And im looking forward to spending some time with my little one and my fiancé this weekend in the sun! After being inspired by Jo Rice at her last demonstration in our store, I may have a little canvas project planned this weekend too :)
 

Speaking of my wonderfull fiancĂ©, I have been working on a little project for her that we can keep all of our baby scans and trinkets in for when the baby is born. I think I have just about finished and I think the flowers really add something to it. Take a look below. The roses are available on the website  HERE




 
Not Bad for a first try! See, even though im sales and marketing driven, us men can be creative too!

Create and Craft show!

Did everyone spot Bernie's beautiful cards on the Create and Craft show with Leonie this morning?
Although I was Working in Store, I made sure to tune in for an hour or so while I sorted through our new items.
Some gorgeous designs from Bernie using the Claritystamps. And a stunningly effective card I noticed from another of our DT, Jo Rice.

Bonus points to anyone that spotted our flowers!
