Grafton Crafts







It's 9.00pm on Saturday 22nd August and I've just finished a perfect gin and tonic, a big plate full of fish and chips washed down with a glass of wine, I'm tired!
I've been up to Grafton Crafts all day. They are in Kimbolton near Huntingdon, yes, a long way north and way up the A1 girls!!! I've been demonstating my new Christmas stamps for the very first time and have had a lovely day with Jenny and Yvonne and all the girls who work there.
There I met the lovely Emily who is a real treasure and a very talented girl too. She was demonstrating Kanban products and we exchanged ideas and techniques. Here is a photo of her making me a much needed coffee on my arrival! As you can see I've also taken a picture of the shop interior and a couple of the reindeer cards I made for them.
The green reindeer card has glossy accents on it and then I used my very big embossing tool on the back once it was dry and guess what, it made that superb cracking effect! Just love it. Will have do it again at The Glitter Pot at their birthday weekend bash. If you want to see my new stamp sets see their web site, I'm sure Bryan and Carolyn have got them all!!! 
Thanks again to all at Grafton Crafts, hope to see you all again soon.
