May challenge - Dies and Punches


Good morning and welcome to our May theme and this month our theme is..............

******Dies and Punches******

I think this will be a popular one, there are so many beautiful ones available now and most of us enjoy using them on our work. Usual rules apply, you can enter up to three times, combine with other challenges, use any make of stamp......but can I please remind you.......

We must see hand stamping as the focal element of your artwork, it can be a stamped image/s, large sentiment or quote....... the one exception are Penny Black Stickeroos. But no digi images and entries using them WILL NOT be eligible for prizes or GDT spots. It so upsets us to see names come out in the draw who are not eligible for a prize because they have not read the rules. 

Now on to the fabulous prizes..............................


Penny Black invite you to explore their creative world and see for yourself why their rubber stamps, stickers, beautiful papers for scrapbooking, cardmaking and stamp crafting are everyone’s favourites. Their products are designed to integrate style and colour for creating the best handicraft projects ever. 

If you would like to be one of the first to hear about new products from Penny Black please click here to join the free club, plus their Facebook is full of activity and news. 



Three lovely prizes from them including one of the new dies.


Crafts U Love was formed in 2001 by Paul Baughton and Jenny Baughton. They are one of the largest stockist in the UK of die cutting and rubber stamp products as well as a wide range of general card making and scrapbooking products.


Next our regular Robert Addams of Papercrafts, Roberts is well known for his innovative crafting CD's, recently he has developed a range of high quality metal dies designed to give a stylish and professional finish to any crafting project which are sold under the name of All Occasion Dies.  The decision was made to stay as a cottage industry in order to provide a sincere and personal service as well as concentrate on a small but very high quality range of products. We pride ourselves on our mail order service and orders received by 3.30pm are normally dispatched first class post the same day, we ship to the UK and there is no minimum order value and free postage.



Stix 2 is the home of all your adhesive needs and much more as well and from them an ultimate adhesive kit, the essentials we need in our everyday crafting.
