I am so excited about sharing this new venture with you. I am part of a Collective of talented and dare I say it crazy craft people who will be opening a pop up shop in the Lower Hutt CBD. This is part of a Hutt City Council initiative to revitalise the CBD and they have been fantastic in their support with this venture – Thanks Cyndi Christensen.
Please check out our Facebook page and like us to follow our journey to opening the shop and beyond.
There will be a wide range of products for sale and we are starting to advertise on Facebook for craftspeople to sell their products through the shop. The interest so far on our Facebook page has been phenomenal. We are still working through the Terms and Conditions and the application form but they are not far away and will be posted on our Facebook page.
I am still really busy making cards for Make Shift and have really struggled to make cards for young children. There are not a lot of cute and funky stamps for children so I popped down to the local $2 shop and bought some stickers that I thought were suitable. I have also used bright primary colours together for a striking effect. I am particularly pleased with how the circus cards turned out.
Here they are:
I have used a range of products here:
Cardstock -some Bazzill and some Stampin‘Up and some I had in my scrap drawer.
Stampin’Up stamps and inks
Hastings Rubber Stamp greeting
Creative Memories Shape Maker System – jigsaw
Creative Memories Custom Cutting System – circles
Creative Memories Rotary Trimmer
Creative Memories Tape Runner (this is only while my stocks last)
Circus and car stickers.
Thank you for visiting and come back often as I will keep you posted on our progress with Make Shift.
Have a great day and Keep Crafting
