I purchased some shaped cutting things from a "new" shop in Ossett. It has always been a good craft shop but the lady that owned it has retired and new blood has given it new life. It is much brighter and seems easier to get around the small space. The shop has been renamed Piggin Crafts.....................
I am however disappointed with my Wizard machine. I have had it an age but never really used it and now find that I do not have the right mats in it. The spacer mat is much smaller than the rest of the mats so I cant cut a larger shape. I did get it from where I worked for free as it was a sample and had been used to demonstrate. I think the wrong mats had been put back in with it. I also have a Xcut but it is too small for the shapes I have bought. Maybe I need to purchase a better machine........suggestions welcome.
Here is my workdesk today - I have finished some cards and have experimented with a single colour. I love the Molly Bloom stamped in green, on green dotty Brazil card. I used some glitter for a bit of sparkle. I also have repeated a cat card which was very popular last time I did it. This time I coloured with promarkers ( i only had watercolour paints last time) and I think its quite cute. I don't put sentiments on my cards for the shop as they prefer no words so that the customers can adapt to whatever occasion they want - i sometimes find this frustrating as a sentiment finishes off a card sometimes.
I am looking forward to snooping around everyones desk today and seeing if I get some more nice comments (or even not so nice if its constructive)
