Well that was short 'n' sweet!

Well did you tune into Create & Craft at midday today to see the release of the new Studio 12 Picknix Collection 1 CD? If so you'll have seen that 80% of the stock went in the first 15 minutes and was a complete sell out before the end of the show! Unfortunately that meant very few of the samples got shown (and looking at the first camera pan round there were some crackers) but worse still hardly any of the collections on the disc got shown! You can watch the show here to get an idea of what I'm talking about!

However, there is some good news, you can buy the download version from here.

Anyway, here's one of mine that I spotted on display. I'll show the rest of them as and when I get time to write up the blog posts, although I might just cop out and pop some photo's on :/

This was a really quick and easy card that was created in Craft Artist Professional and then printed out onto fabric using the freezer paper technique. I simply dropped one of the backing papers onto the template, added the cross stitched heart, placed the word art sentiment onto blank area of my template and hit print. I then cut out the sentiment and frayed out the edges, trimmed around the main image and adhered it to a piece of card before mounting onto the card blank. To finish I added some Glossy Accents to the needle, faux stitching around the edge and some buttons.

I have to say I honestly think this one of the best collections that Polka Doodles have released - I pulled together a few samples, but have had to grab a note book to jot down my other ones! If you happen to buy it, please let me know so that I can stop by your blog and see what you've created with it.

Well that's it from me - I'm off out for a walk whilst the sun is shining (before it gets dark/rains), just keeping my fingers crossed that I don't get blown away! Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

  13. What a super card Claire - I had no idea you were on TV. I was mystified by the reference to 'freezer paper' last time you mentioned it and here it is again - I haven't seen it in supermarkets or maybe I just haven't recognised it, can you explain what I need to look for. TIA xx

  14. Hi Marg

    I'll post a link to the freezer paper and also the technique again in my next blog post. I'm, not sure if this emails you a notification or not, so until I establish that, I'll blog it for you.
