An Autumn Stroll, a Birthday and a Huge sale!

Hi there

Thanks for popping in. There’s nothing quite like a stroll over the Ashdown Forest at this time of the year, at this late time of the day. The rolling hills, the gorse, the panoramic views, and OH! The colours! Glorious autumn indeed. Good to be out in the open and stretching those legs.

The Half Price Fresh Cut Die Sale has certainly hit the spot. So glad you appreciate the designs too. There are some really superb landscape and panoramic ones, illustrated by our friend Mel. Let me show you which ones I mean….


Mel lives near here and is a big walker. She’s got dogs, so she’s out for miles and hours every day. No wonder her artwork always calls to nature.

There are loads by Mel! I haven’t even shown you my favourite flower ones! I will shed a light on them tomorrow xx


Here’s some random artwork from my stash using these superb dies….



Pottery. They work brilliantly for ceramics!






It’s Mel’s Birthday tomorrow! Here we see her trying her hand at parchment art….HAPPY BIRTHDAY MEL !!!!

Fo all it’s worth,I think our Fresh Cut dies are THE BEST!!!! They help you create beautiful, perfect art every time. One pass through the die cutting machine, and it’s done. Add a little designer card, paper or parchment and the job’s a goodn. There‘s quick n easy, and there’s quick n easy, arty and beautiful. Paper Cutting come to you.

Anyway. I fancy a turn on the wheel, so I shall love you and leave you.

CLICK HERE for the Half Price Sale on our Dies. Offer till midnight Monday.

Love and Hugs

PS. Another special offer well worth looking at is our offer of the week. The filigree stamps (also designed by Mel) are exquisite. Look!

And this is all I used – ONE filigree stamp! Endless possibilities.

    still a bit groggy after the booster, but it’s better than the alternative, and won’t put me off any more jabs in future.

  2. Merci Barbara et Joyeux anniversaire à Melanie !!
    Great memories with you both and Dave at Guergaro !
    Hope everybody is well !

  3. Happy Birthday Mel, hopefully “Craft Buddy” I’ll get to see you at next year’s Clarity Retreat if they’re on! Your designs are magic, whether as stamps, stencils, Groovi or dies! And yes Barbara, your dies are the best, so easy to use, brilliantly detailed and amazing designs! And I shall say it again, the Frame-it dies are so innovative and perfect for finishing any artwork whether stamped, stencilled or on Parchment. Have a lovely weekend everyone.

  4. Happy Birthday Mel, November is becoming a very busy month for Birthdays.
    I love this time of year when all the leaves change colour. We have an Acer in the garden that has changed from green to a beautiful red.
    I also love the dies & have been playing with the latest club die & the doodle frames over the last couple of days. The Doodle frames & the picot dies are game changing for giving a beautiful finish to any card. The other dies give so many variations as well that can be as simple as just cutting the die in card & mounting on a backing paper or using double sided adhesive sheets to either paper piece, add gilding flakes or use the waste to make a 2nd card.
    Thank you for sharing your love of papercuts & the Design Team for all their inspirational samples.
    Enjoy the rest of your weekend x

  5. I’m loving seeing all the die cut art work that has been coming our way. The Clarity dies really are the best as I no longer have to spend an eternity poking out all the bits due to that special coating of yours – the bits really do just fall away. Love them all. Hope you have a good pottery session and that Dave is on the mend xxx

  6. Love the dies they are so easy to use and make beautiful cards with your designer papers x Glad you had some time to get out the Ashdown forest is fabulous and I expect the autumn 🍂 tints are stunning clears the cobwebs x Enjoy your pottery good to see you are having some down time xx
    Happy birthday to Mel love her designs xx
