Crafting My Style, DT Creations, John Lockwood on C&C and The Craft Awards

Morning Crafters!

Another day bursting with crafting inspiration over on our blog page today! We have a new episode of Crafting My Style with Sue Wilson (the Shaped Background Technique), as well as new makes from our wonderful DT; Pam Smith and Donna Ratcliff...

One more thing, Kim Robertson will be live on Create and Craft this coming Monday (27th October) for a Creative Expressions Stamping Show at 9am & 4pm to show off some brand new Dies from Couture Creations! We will tell you more about it nearer the time, and reveal some of her gorgeous makes for you to see.

John Lockwood on Create & Craft

We have some super exciting news - John Lockwood will be appearing live on Create & Craft today for his very own Creative Expressions One Day Wonder Show!

Times: 10am & 3pm
Channels: Freeview 36/Sky 674/Freesat 813/Virgin 748

We hope that you can either tune in and join him live, or even set your TV's to record, but am sure he would be delighted to have your support. He has some amazing projects to share with you, as he demonstrates Craft Dies by Sue Wilson.

Crafting My Style with Sue Wilson

In this episode of Crafting My Style, Sue will show you how to use your background dies for other uses (other than just simple backgrounds!). Sue really brings her background Dies to life with this project.

You can subscribe to this series of free tutorial videos, by heading to the Creative Expressions YouTube Channel. We are currently working on the next series, so there are plenty more to join the 100+ videos that are all there waiting for you!

Start with Yourself by Pam Smith

Pam has used the Wrought Iron Stamp Set to create the sentiment and swirly elements to this gorgeous make. The use of green and black creates the perfect blend to really set off this wonderful make.

Head over to Pam's blog for more information.

Another Day by Donna Ratcliff

Pretty in Pink indeed! This make is super bright and cheerful, and the pinks are just beautiful teamed with the yellows and greens. Donna has used the Curled Frame Stamp Set for this project - we are just loving the creations that the DT are making with this set of new stamps.

  2. Hi all at CE. Happy Tuesday. My vote was registered the weekend I think, I voted for you in all the nominated catagories PLUS those that apply but not nominated for (ie the 'other's that I thought you should be recognised for)
    Good Luck. You are all winners. Love the products. Well done.
