Creative Expressions Takeover Weekend today

Hi Bloggers.

The Creative Expressions Takeover Weekend at Hochanda starts today at 6pm when Sue Wilson Launches a new One Day Special. Lisa Horton is on at 7pm and then Sue is on again at 8pm. I have listed the weekend schedule in the left hand side bar of this blog.

I have 2 projects to share with you today. The first is from my Weaving Die shows on Sunday -

Products used -
Sue Wilson - Intermediate Weaving Die, Scalloped Lattice Frames Set B, Striped Nasturtium, Spring Foliage, Thank You
Woodware 2mm Foam Tape
Creative Expressions - 3mm Black Pearls, Card : Black, Coconut White

Lisa's show tonight features some new MDF so I made this while at Ally Pally last weekend -

Products used -
Creative Expressions - MDF Festive Media Boards, Double Sided Self Adhesive Sheet
Cosmic Shimmer - Acrylic Mixed Media Paint : Chelsea Blue and Caactus Leaf, Silver Moon Sparkle Texture Paste, Apple Red Glitterbitz
Lisa Horton - Stitched Collection : Sleigh, Stylish Script : Season's Greetings
Sue Wilson - Here Comes Santa Snow Globe Scene
Phill Martin Sentimentally Yours Stencil - Twinkle Twinkle

Obviously, no Freebie Friday this week - it'll be back next week.

My website is still not available 😞 It looked like it was getting somewhere but there were no images so the whole migration was started again. It looks like the drop down category menus will take some time to get sorted so I may go live with a less than perfect system but at least the search button works and the payment system should be more reliable. Also the prices shown are ex-VAT, VAT will be added at checkout. I'll try and get that sorted as a priority. Nothing is ever as easy as it appears to be!

Don't forget to tune in at 6pm!

Thanks for stopping by.

Free card with all website orders over £10 (ask for one in the comments box at checkout).

  10. Morning Julia,
    Beautiful weaving card. Looking froward to the weekend.

  11. You know how much I love the weaving dies so this card is ace in my eyes.

    The MDF price is sweet and would make a nice Christmas adornment in the house.

    Your website migration sounds an absolute nightmare. Hope it won't be long before it is all sorted.
