Research For Work

My husband & I are in the middle of doing some research and experiments for a new venture within our business and want to head down the craft industry with some products that we sell on our website.

We now want your help! So, if you are interested in answering a Questionnaire, Craft related, then could you please e-mail me if you would like to answer the questionnaire and we can e-mail you the Questionnaire.

Your answers will help us remarkably and it will only take 5 minutes of your time!

Providing that you answer our Questionnaire we are thinking of setting up a Craft challenge where the products are provided to you for FREE! If you do not answer the Questionnaire then payment towards postage will be needed. Do keep your eye on my Blog as depending on how good a response we get we may, may not do the challenge.

Thanks for reading and thanks for helping us with our research!

Something Simple and Pretty

I made this very simple card with Simplicity in mind at the time of creating it. I was loving this beautiful pretty floral paper and really wanted to it show its beauty off! So used a couple of layers, added on some paper rose, stitched on some beads and sequins and punched paper flowers of the same floral paper and attached on a Dear Friedn Sentiment!

This card was made agian keeping simplicity in mind and wnated to use this Fiary Image very much. This was my result and I am fairly happy with it. Everything has been adhered with glue except the Fairy as have used foam squares to give dimension.

Glass Painted Butterfly Card

My Husband and I run our own business, selling Art & Hobby Materials online. We are in the process of of doing research (above) as we are in progress of furthering our ideas into the Carft Industry. One of the products we sell is Decorfin Glass Paint and Decorfin Relief Paint, produced by Royal Talens in Holland. There are other products to suit the craft market but, for now we are focussing on the Glass Paints.

In this card below I have used the product for the Butterfly, which I drew out by going over a stamp and outlined! I used two colours to piant it in and used silver relief paint to outline! I have used the Butterfly in a LO (LayOut) that I took from a card project featured in the most recent cardmaking & papercraft magzine! I found it joyous to work along to a card rpoject LO and used my own papers and ideas and I was most pleased with the end result!

Glass Painted Hearts on Floral CardGl

I made this card withna glass painted topper, made by myself using a template of a heart from a craft magazine and our Glass Paints we sell online on our website . the topper has been adhered using foam squares and for the rest of the card I use lots of layers of papers and experimented with placement of the papers and added on flowers, range of, and stitched on beads and sequins and added on a blank white for a sentiment to add when required!
Other pics of the card are seen below and a Matching Envelope is seen too, which I feel just finishes it all off. Thanks for peking in.

Made an Matching Envelope to go with my card, below
