    Brass Stencils and the Cuttlebug

    Can anyone please recommend what to put in a Cuttlebug to make brass stencils work ? I have used the sandwich that is on the ProvoCraft Website with a mousemat and I have tried all sorts of combinations of plates, packs of paper, card etc. etc. and still can't get it to work. Has anyone found the solution ? I understand there is a mat on Oyster Stamps Website but I am reluctant to spend £6 odd only to find out that still does not work. Thanks

    Huge, huge thanks

    I would just like to say a huge thank you to all you lovely CB'ers who sent me birthday cards and raks. I had many, many beautifully made cards and they are fantastic. I shall take a photograph when the light gets better here of them all and say thank you personally for them but just wanted to say a huge thank you in the meantime. With love, Jo x

    Cheese scones recipe? anyone please?

    You can also put half a teaspoon of English Mustard in the mix too and put some of the cheese on top of them before baking and then I sprinkle some paprika or cayenne pepper on the top too (gives them a bit of a kick !!). Serve warm with lots of butter - yum, yum !

    PaperArtsy Christmas Stamps Kit card

    Kate asked if we could show any pictures of any cards we had made with this kit that was on special offer on the CB site. This is my first card with the kit and I love the kit. I think I will use it a lot for my Christmas cards I made this for my DT piece on the BasicGrey Challenge Blog. Jo x

    PaperArtsy Christmas Stamps Kit card

    Thank you all for your lovely comments. Yes Kate, the stamps stamp beautifully although they don't look like they will when you see then ! I can't wait to see what you come up with from the kit, very exciting isn't it and so different for me.

    PaperArtsy Christmas Stamps Kit

    I have ordered the PaperArtsy Christmas Stamps kit that is shown on this site. Has anyone else ordered it ? I ordered mine on the 10th September and I have still not received it. I know it says to wait 28 days but I wondered whether anyone else had ordered and received it yet ? Jo x

    PaperArtsy Christmas Stamps Kit

    I received my Christmas kit this morning and I must say, I am impressed with the stamps. The papers are very small, I expected them to be A4 size but they aren't. They are lovely papers as they are double sided and so match each other. I did email PaperArtsy a few days ago about my order and I didn't receive any communication back which I was disappointed in. It is a big shame because the product itself is very good. I would probably order from them again but I would keep in mind that it would take nearly a month for the order to get to me !!! Hope you get yours soon. Jo x

    Vellum - Ideas please

    I have just bought myself some beautiful Christmas vellum but now I have no idea how to use it. I have just used some on a Christmas tag I have made for my DT work on a challenge blog but I'm not so sure I've used it right. I would love to know some ideas of how to use it. Thank's ladies !

    PaperArtsy Christmas Stamps Kit

    Actually Max its really annoying because they took the money from my credit card straight away so I can't see why they can't send them to us. I might email them

    Vellum - Ideas please

    So sorry girls, I should have replied sooner. Thank you very much for your suggestions. I shall give them a try. The vellums are beautiful, very Christmassy and I have a pack in silver and gold. I have used a piece of it on a Christmas tag which is on my blog but unfortunately it doesn't show the vellum at its best. I think I could have used it a bit better too ! Thanks, Jo x

    Paper trimmers?

    I bought mine from here I am not sure if this place is the cheapest (I think it was at the time I bought mine) but their service was excellent. I ordered it at 5pm and it arrived the next morning.
