Laura Ashley range

We have at last received our delivery of the lovely new Laura Ashley range by Dovecraft. The range comes in both the traditional and the comtemporary styles so there really is something to suit all tastes.
Can't seem to take a photo which does it justice in today's murky lighting but we have got everything up on the website here

New arrivals

We just thought we would give you a glimpse of our new deliveries, which we are currently putting up on the website.

We have 11 different sets of twinkling H2Os here for adding the extra special touch to your stamping projects, along with some U-mount repositional mounting cushions for your unmounted stamps here

We have lots of gorgeous Doodlebug goodies, including , gingham ribbons, accent organdy ribbons, mini brads and the funky abc letter embellishments

We have even more new chipboard goodies from Maya Road

We finally have the ever-popular 12x12 Cropper Hoppers back in stock but while we were ordering we decided to go crazy and try out the 8x8 and 6x6 sizes too (which are super handy as they come ready and raring with dividers!)

We are working to try and get all the new goodies on ASAP so keep your eyes on the What's new section of the website!

Happy Easter!

I would like to introduce you to...

..... Amelia (Millie) and George

So congratulations to 'goldfingers' who has won herself the first of these stamps. Please can you send your name and address to and I will pop your George and Millie's in the post to you straight away - well done! I hope you enjoy using them as much as we enjoyed making them.

We had so many brilliant suggestions we couldn't actually decide between them so we delegated the decision making to our designer.

We looking forward to a very busy but exciting weekend as we prepare for the launch of the stamp collection early next week.
