Hero Arts latest 2012 release is now in store. I really love the newsprint style as you will tell by the kind of stamps I have purchased for the shop.... They have also brought out a  Paris range which is so Tres Chic and really suits the mixed media style artwork.  Hero Arts has also teamed up with Sizzix so if you own a cuttlebug, big shot or another die cutting machine then the latest stamp and cut dies will eliminate a lot of fussing cutting time.
If you haven't already you need to go onto the Hero Arts web site  to see all the fantastic work that the stamps can do.....with a little help from you of course! Go to
Come into the shop to see our range or do a card class with Kristina on Thursday nights and you can play with the stamps yourself!

Bo Bunny Enchanted

Deb Johnston has created a really beautiful page don't you think? Deb has used the latest papers from the Bo Bunny "Enchanted" collection and transformed them simply by cutting out the mannequin and creating a pleated skirt. Easy to do with a scoring board or you could even try making a skirt with fabric such as tulle. The skirt is finished off with a hand made button to match from "Shellies" (available in the shop).  Strips of ribbons finish off the project and Deb who loves making her own embellishments has used the ribbons to make her own flowers....
