Well everyone I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I am to share the news with you that I’ve got a new range launching in a couple of weeks...... and when I say ‘I’ this time I actually mean little old me!
For years I’ve worked with a wider team to research the market, examine trends and develop product to fit that, but for the first time ever I’ve personally designed a range of products that it just what I like – personally my style!
The concept actually came about back in January this year when I was approached by the folks at Hobbycraft who asked me to develop a range of my personal taste that they could put in store – because as a business they are finding more and more younger people (young mums especially like myself) are getting into crafting so they wanted something that an experienced crafter would love but that could also appeal to this other customer.
I’ve spent months working on this, getting input from Leann and our product development team and I have to say I’m thrilled with the result!
So, more of the juicy details.....
It launches at the end of this month – I’ll share loads of sneak peaks and projects with you in the next few weeks (including some lovely video tutorials) plus if you pick up a copy of Issue 8 of our Crafter’s Inspiration Magazine (which is out now!) then I’ve done a huge feature on it and actually recorded an exclusive DVD that comes free with the magazine!
Anyway, this isn’t just a one off launch – it’s actually the start of a program of different themes, and I’ll launch new themes on a regular basis (every eight weeks). The initial launch is the first two themed collections – Butterfly Lullaby and Festive Wonder.
Here’s a few samples made with the Butterfly Lullabye Range to give you an idea....
And also some from Festive Wonder...
I’ll share the full details of each range with you in due course, but to give you a flavour each range includes some beautiful papers presented in a 6"x6" or a 12"x12” paper pad, plus a set of accompanying acrylic stamps, some wonderful toppers, a suite of fabulous embossing folders (5”x7” and 6x6” so they’ll fit through all machines) and of course a set of amazing dies.
I can’t wait to share with you more of the card designs I’ve come up with already for the range, plus yesterday I was in the studio launching a whole suite of fantastic project ideas that we’ll be releasing on YouTube!
Watch this space for more information, but I’m going to be giving away loads of the cards I make – I’ve got THREE from this range to giveaway already, so if you’d like to be one of the first people to receive a card using the new suite of products then just leave me a comment here letting me know what you think and i’ll pick 3 winners at random on Monday next week and send you one of my cards.
Can’t wait to hear all about what you think of my new range!
