New October 2010 Kits now available at The Craftz Boutique

October 2010 Monthly Kit now Online at The Craftz Boutique

This months kit features the new Fancy Pants Happy Together Collection as well as Creative Imaginations Beloved Papers. The Creative Imaginations alphabet sticker sheet is a new unique product and is included in the kit - the sheet contains a variety of different expressions/words/sayings which you can use as they are but you can use the letters seperately - all of the letters in the sayings form a whole alphabet!
I created both of the layouts below using the kit and still had papers left!

Also, I have created a mini kit this month in addition to the kit above using the Fancy Pants Lilac House Range. I created the layout below using this mini kit.

Thank you for looking

We are really excited to introduce the brand new Craftz Boutique blog! We hope to bring you inspirational ideas, kits, product reviews and all of the latest news on what new items we have coming to our website and what has just been uploaded!

Just Added to the Website ... Brand New Pink Paislee

Pink Paislee - "Queen Bee"

Instructions for creating the Lily included in the April Monthly Kit:

Additional suppies needed:

  • Glue
  • A soft padded surface such as a mousemat to work on
  • Tweezers
  • A material to shade the petals such as markers or Twinkling H20's & a Waterbrush
The kit contains 6 petals each of 4 different sizes. Seperate the Petals into the four different sizes. Take one size to create your Lily.

Using a marker, such a a Pro-Marker or Copic Ciao or a Waterbrush and Twinking H20's, add shading down the center of the 6 petals.

With a darker marker 'dot' over the shading.

Using the flat end of the tweezers shape the 6 petals by applying pressure & running the tweezers down the length.
Take each petal by the tip and dip each end into glue. Place 3 petals around each other projection of the green snowflake shape. Repeat with the other 3 petals placing them closer to the centre.

Take the stamen piece and colour circles on the ends on both sides.

Dab a small amount of glue in the middle and press the stamen together. Then dip the end into the glue and place it in the center of the flower.

Allow to dry completely (Approx 30 minutes)

New Graphic 45 Collection - Le Romantique

We have just added the new Graphic 45 Collection - 'Le Romantique' along with 'A Proper Gentleman' and 'Boardwalk'
These collections are the first ones which we have stocked of Graphic 45 and we are really impressed with the quality and design. The papers definately have a lovely vintage feel perfect for heritage layouts. We have created the following layout using the Le Romantique Collection to give an idea of what could be acheived with these papers. In the layout we have also used Prima Marketing Tea Roses Latte and Grand Dame Ambrosia Blooms, Bazzill Tulle, Websters Lace and a Zva adhesive swirl.
The Papers used from the Le' Romantique collection are: Loves Labyrinth, Le' Romantique Paper, My Beloved, Key to My Heart, Well Groomed, Sweetheart of Mine. From the A Perfect Gentleman collection I have also used the Timely Point of view paper.
