What a lovely time we had... our card making day on Saturday here on the Wirral.

So blessed with a fantastic group of ladies and our Helen's wonderful cards, mustn't forget Steve, always on hand with the refreshments.  We made lots of cards with new stamps from our latest Stamp Box and our new Hatch, Match and Dispatch stamp set and a lovely sticker card too.

In between the scrummy cakes, here's a small selection of what we made:

Such a lovely little Westie stamp which comes with the text too and then our gorgeous Giraffe kraft tag, again it comes with the sentiment 'Much love to YOU' which Helen has used as a background on the tag:

Have to show you this card - this sympathy stamp is from our Hatch, Match and Dispatch stamp set and Helen matched it with papers from our Super Swirlies 1 paper pack, doesn't it go well?  Would love to say that I planned it like that lol, but no, a happy coincidence

Our next card making day is Saturday 05 August and we are devoting a whole day to Christmas card making.  We will be using all new Christmas stamps, not yet released - you will see a selection of them on our next HOCHANDA show which is on Friday 07 July at 11am, hope you can watch us.

If you would like to come to one of our days, please see on web here or email or call us: 0151 648 8777 for more info.

Hope you've had a great weekend, Little Claire Team xxx

P.S. We will be at StampMagic, Doncaster Dome this coming Sunday 04 June

Did you get to see our show today?

Steve was live on HOCHANDA TV at 11am this morning and he had a great show with Charlie the presenter (think they both got along very well)...such a fabulous show that they had sell outs! WOW!

Here's a recap of what was featured:

Our fabulous New Stamp Box was a sell out on the TV and we're not surprised because it contains such a lot of stamping goodies - 12 stamps (images and text) assorted blank cards, assorted backing papers and 6 colour project sheets to make cards with the items in the box (just add some bits n bobs from your stash)
Take a look here and grab yours!

Next we have a new stamp set 'Hatch, Match & Dispatch' such a perfect set of stamps for 3 of life's occasions, here's a couple of cards made with this sell out set:

Aren't they gorgeous images, especially like the softly drawn 'with sympathy' see this set here

Steve will be at the Excalibur Crafts Show, Motorbike Museum (opp NEC) tomorrow Sat 06 May and also at the Creat It Show in Kent next weekend where he will have all his new goodies, hope to see you there!
