All gone ... but new products have arrived

I can't believe how quickly December's kit sold out, and if you missed it, I'm sorry - although some of the papers are available on their own. But now to the exciting news! I took delivery of Pink Paislee's Cupid collection today ...ooohhhhh it's just so gorgeous. I do love double sided paper, and it's not too in your face pink! Did I really say that LOL.

December's kit now available

I just loved playing with the December kit, I've made a few cards and a couple of layouts which I really do need to upload LOL. But I think my favourite has to be this card cut from the elements sheet.

I have to say this kit has really put me in a creative mood .... heaven help us LOL

December's sneaky peek .....

Is just so gorgeous - I'm loving December's kit. It will be going on sale on Monday 7th, usual time, around 8ish, and I have to say I just love these papers. Sadly the chipboard and stickers that I was going to do as an add on sold out really quickly. Still with the kit, you'll have all you need to create amazing cards and layouts.

Loving BG

Ok, now I'm not normally a fan, but the Eskimo Kisses from BasicGrey is just too gorgeous to resist. I made this quick card earlier today for the person I'm Secret Santa for over at our Cheam Crop - and don't worry it won't give the game away. The card is going in with the present for the 25th.

The papers and the epoxy stickers are just so easy to use - I feel more card making coming on!

I know what's in here!

I was asked to put together a mystery kit for the Eastbourne retreat, and I really enjoyed doing it, so thank you for that - and I'm looking forward to seeing what you create with it.

Such a bad .. bad .. blogger!

What on earth!!
I had one month of being a good girl and updating on a regular basis, and then what happened! ... Well, I've given myself a good talking too and I promise (well, fingers crossed LOL) to do better this month.

So, here it is - it's kit time - and I have to say it was a real pleasure getting these papers for the kit, so bright and funky, and I just love to bits the journal stickers.

If you get a minute have a look at the gallery and see the amazing work that Clare has done with it ... thanks Clare, you're a star.

Scrummy ... is the word

OOhh I'm loving this months kit - I'm such a fan of Prima at the moment, and the Animal Bash collection is just gorgeous. This month's kit has it all ... the amazing double sided papers, shaped cardstock from Bazzill (which is fabulous), a clear stamp, blooms and gems - what more could a girl ask for.

It's almost over

My goodness where did September go? I can't believe that we're almost at the end of the sale as well. It's been quite a month I must say, firstly the sale has been amazing - it's reminded me of some of the yummy products that the shop has, but on an even more fun note ... lots of new stock has been arriving, I'm loving the Eskimo Kisses, if not just for the name - but it's the Amber Road that I've really got a soft spot for.

Talking of soft spots - a note to myself, my iphone doesn't like hard landings! Not so long ago, I dropped it, and it was one of those, "I don't want to look" moments. True enough the screen had cracked and an expensive trip to the apple store was called for. It's now almost wrapped in a duvet! Still, it was something that had to be scrapped, and the Sassafras papers were just right for the layout - and of course for me, no layout is complete without blooms.

Maybe this is a layout I won't need to hide in the draw like I did a broken phone :)

Perfect Photos for the Perfect Paper

Ok, so I'm more than a little in love with the latest Pink Paislee Papers, Amber Road - but at the crop on Saturday I couldn't help but use them - and talk about the perfect photos for the paper.

I couldn't wait to scrap these photos of Simon and I on a walk through Bourne Hall Park last October, and of course, no layout is complete without flowers,bling and thickers.

Even more new goodies have arrived

OOhhhh I feel like a kid in a sweetie shop - the new Pink Paislee, Amber Road has arrived and to say it's gorgeous, would be an understatement. The colours are just perfect for Autumn, but the paper I'm loving the most is the postcard paper ... it's got a to do list on it! LOL.

Thursday, September 10, 2009


Yup, I've finished uploading BasicGrey's Eskimo Kisses collection, and I just LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it. Now normally I'm not a BG fan, but these papers and embellishments are just stunning - I think the only problem with the papers, is choosing which side to use.

Tuesday, September 08, 2009


OOhhhh so exciting, I'm having my first proper sale :) ... yes, I know it's taken a bit of time coming, but now it's here I'm loving it. Actually packing up orders and going back through older papers, is reminding me how much I love some of them. And just to remind you of some of them ... here is a project created, by Pat using the A5 chipboard and Prima Papers

The Secret is out

The August kit is made up of papers from MME and the breaking free collection. Just perfect for those day's out shots and holiday photos. Actually I say that, but I used the papers for this layout of my mum ... and no her smile isn't from too much drink LOL. I just loved this kit, for me double sided papers are just perfect.

Now normally I would show you a picture of the March kit - but as it's sold out, probably no point, sorry about that! Now the main reason for this post is to wish a certain person a VERY VERY VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY. So Claire, Enjoy your day and make sure you get well and truely spoilt.

Also, no post would be complete without a picture, so here is the layout that the birthday girl created using the March kit.

Hot Mama ... what a name, but then again what a gorgeous collection of papers from Glitz Design. Those, are the papers in the February kit, which is available now and of course, you'll be amazed at the fabulous work Pat and Clare have done with it. Not only that - Clare has found a great downloadable image you can purchase from (look under the Glitz designs section) and used it on her layout "Hey Girls" - and full details of how they both created these stunning layouts are on the sheet that comes with the kit.

Happy New Year to you all ... can you believe all that rushing around getting ready for Christmas and it's all now over and decorations put away, all but that one, you always find when the boxes are put in the loft .. still, I'm counting down the days till Christmas 09 already!

But before then, I've made my New Years Resoultions and broken some already - but one I'm hoping not to break (too often) is to come on here and keep you up to date with the goings on at Gotta Craft. The first one being our January Kit - which I have to say ... I LOVE! Yes I know, I'm slightly biased - but it's just got the most gorgeous collection of papers in it, and with both Tracey and Claire working on it for the DT gallery, I know you'll be in for a treat. The kit will be on sale in the evening of Friday 16th January, with posting out on Monday 19th. I hope you like it as much as I do.
