Something for the (long) weekend!

If you are reading this post then I'm assuming that you are a Kanban fan :) If that's the case then have you had a look at the special Kanban deals on Create and Craft this weekend? Also until tomorrow there is free p & p too!

For example, you could have the 

Kanban Belle De Fleur Foiled Paper Pad Coordinating Set

or what about

or even

Kanban Family Friends and Animal Madness Wobbler Card Making Multibuy

The free p & p offer finishes at 11.59 tomorrow night. You could also pop over to the Aspire Crafts (The Home Of Kanban) web site and take a look at some of the fabulous prices on the site. The Handy Pads are selling at just £5.00 each but if you buy all four of them they will only cost you £18.00 AND if you spend over £10.00 and you live in the UK Mainland you will receive free p & p as standard.
Handy Pad Full Collection
What are you waiting for? 
Back soon.

PS Keep popping back as I may just have news of a new kit coming in the next few weeks :)

Selection Box part 3

Good morning everyone, thanks for your comments and and support for the latest Kanban kit, The Selection Box. Don't forget that there are several Kanban items on Create and Craft this morning in the Monday Morning Craftiness show at 10 o'clock.

This morning I have a few more samples made by the Design Team for the Selection Box show on Friday with Keith and Denise. Did you get yours? Have you paid a visit to Aspire Crafts yet? This is the home of Kanban and there are some wonderful goodies which are desperately looking for new homes ;) Go on, you know you want to lol.
Sue made this beautiful card, I just love that butterfly!
Tracey C made this fabulous bunting. It's amazing how different the samples are that the team create with the kits.
This card was made by Debbie J, isn't it just gorgeous? I've never made a shaped easel card so it will have to go on my to do list.
And finally for now, this lovely creation was made for us by Linda.

That's it for now again, I shall post a picture of one of mine later in the week.
Thanks for dropping by.

Selection Box

Another couple of fabulous creations from the Design Team created for the latest gorgeousness from the House of Kanban (Aspire Crafts). We were amazed at which colours worked well together and I know I was really worried when I first opened my kit to find that there weren't any patterned papers or toppers to work with but once I laid all the papers etc out on my desk the ideas started flowing :)
This little beauty was made by Celia.
Another fab creation from Tracey B.
Something totally different from Judith, what a great idea.

I will be back tomorrow with some more fab samples but in the mean time, a little temptation......tune in to Create and Craft for their Monday Morning Craftiness show tomorrow morning if you fancy any of these :)

See you later, enjoy the rest of your weekend. x

One Day Wonder

Did you manage to catch the shows with Denise, Keith and Martyn yesterday on Create & Craft? I'm away at the moment but have the shows recorded for when I get back and I'm really looking forward to seeing them.I sent my samples back to the office and forgot to photograph them but Sue took some photos for me and will send them to me soon.
The girls made some amazing samples and we are always surprised at just how different our samples are when we all use the same kit.
This was made by Denise.
This one was made by Debby Thornton.
And this one was made by Nicola Morley.

That's it for now but I will be back later with more lovely samples. In the mean time we can be seen on Pinterest at Aspire Crafts and Facebook as well as all the individual blogs by the design team.

Take care, Speak soon

Ok, so you've bought the kits and then what? I have sat, so many times, surrounded by Kanban kits and not had a idea of where to start with them, so you are not alone. This is where we (the Design Team) can help you :) You can become a member of our Facebook groups

or follow us on Pinterest. Every time the DT are sent a new kit Sue sets up a new Pinterest page for us to add our work too so if you follow us you will receive a notification every time someone uploads a project onto any of our boards....and there are quite a few more to the ones I have linked to below!

and of course, the Create & Craft shows

There will be a new show around the 21st August but we will post definite show times etc as soon as we know them.

I'll be back later in the week with some of the favourite Kanban work from members of the DT.

Take care and thanks for dropping by. x

What's new?

Well it's been a while since we have been here (in case you hadn't noticed ;)). The team has been really busy and we have had a few new kits out which have been previewed on Create & Craft tv (new TV shows mean lots of samples to prepare). We have a brand new team to share with you too, so I would like you to welcome

Tracey Collett

Please try to pay their blogs a visit to say hi and to see the gorgeous samples they came up with for the last couple of kits. Sue, Karen, Denise, Cheremane and myself are still here too and are really looking forward to getting to know our new team mates, welcome ladies.

So what new kits have been launched, I hear you ask! Well, we had Floral Bloom way back in March with the fab little C6 Verses & Sentiments pad,
then we had the Handy Pads set (which is fab).

 May brought us the Love & Kisses kit 
In June there was the Vintage Christmas kit
In July we had the Belle de Fleur kit which is just gorgeous
and we are just waiting for a new kit for August so watch this space :)

Back soon, thanks for dropping by x
