New Products!! Cosmic Shimmer Multi-Tex Texture Powder & Cosmic Shimmer Intense Pigment Stains...

Photograph World© Geoff Wilkinson
Cosmic Shimmer Multi-Tex Mould & Texture Powder is a new product from Creative Expressions and comes in a 150ml pot.

It is a dry powder that when mixed with water creates a versatile texture paste for use in many craft projects. 

Use the new Cosmic Shimmer Intense Pigment Stains added to the wet mix to give the multi-tex colour. 

The pigment stains by themselves can also be mixed with water to create coloured mister sprays, ideal for backgrounds and for colouring in when used with a paint brush.

The pigment stains come in the following colours (you can see some of them in the photograph above) and we are stocking them all: Blue Violet, Bluebell, Citrus Lime, Deep Plum, Emerald, Rich Crimson, Rose Pink and Sunflower Yellow.

We used both the products at our demo day on Sunday. The texture paste has a great feel to it and also dries quite quickly. 
If you would like to see how the products work and could not make the demo day, then pop into the shop and we will be more than happy to demonstrate them to you.

Love Lyn and Dan

'A Little Something from Lexi'....

If you have seen our blog previously you will have seen posts featuring something crafty made by Lexi who is the granddaughter of our friend Janet. 

Lexi made the card in the photograph above using the Creative Expressions 'Squeak' and 'Hoppity Bunny' pre cut rubber stamps designed by Sam Poole. The stamps are also a favourite at Craft Boutique 84.

Sorry we did not put your card on the blog sooner. We think it looks absolutely brilliant.

Love from Lyn and Danielle

'A Trio of Beach Huts'....

Our friend Wendy D'Souza Daniels is a local artist in Wanstead. She is very supportive of our craft workshops and demo days and is a regular attendee.

A few weeks ago she bought a set of Creative Expressions MDF 'By The Sea Beach Huts' from our craft shop which contains a trio of beach huts and look at the results below. We think they look Fab! Wendy is giving the end result as a gift to a friend who loves beach huts and we thought it would be nice to show them on the blog. The pictures below show the back and front.

We hope you enjoy.

'Card Making Craziness!!'...Look What We Made....

This month's craft workshop theme was 'Card Making Craziness'. We held the same workshop over two nights on Wednesday the 1st and Thursday the 2nd of June. We had a great turn out again this month and everybody said that they had a really wonderful time. Thank you to everybody that attended. 

The variations in everybody's cards looked fantastic and were going to be used for a mixture of occasions including Father's Day, an engagement and birthdays to name a few.

We used the new 'By The Sea' Clear Stamp Set from Creative Expressions to create a nautical themed card. The matching 'Lovely Garden' stamp and die set from Stampendous! was used to make the negative space themed card featuring the butterfly. The negative space background was coloured in using Crafter's Companion Spectrum Noir Alcohol Ink markers and they were also used to colour in the boat on the nautical card. Also used on the night were a variety of WOW! embossing powders (they are fab!!).

Below are photographs of what was made on the night, we hope you enjoy looking through them.
