Today over at Creative Expressions....

There's lots going on today at Creative Expressions. We have finally managed to get back to normality following the aftermath of the Big Stamp & Scrapbooking Show. We all had a great time at the show, but it's non-stop once we are there, so it's nice to get back into our normal working routines...

As of today, we are going to change the way we blog. Instead of posting a new blog every time we have some new news, we are going to collate all the information for each day into one big post, so that you don't need to keep coming back! We hope you like the new format :)





Phill Martin on Create & Craft:

So for today, we have to tell you that the wonderful Phill Martin will be appearing on Create & Craft at 8am & 3pm today for a Creative Expressions Stamping Show. Phill will be demonstrating a selection of brand new stamps available from Creative Expressions. Click here to see all the items that will be featured on the show.

Times: 8am & 3pm
Channels: Freeview 36/Sky 674/Freesat 813/Virgin 748

Goodbye to Kim Bacon!

It is with much sadness that today we post the last make from our DT member, Kim Bacon. Kim joined us earlier this year when an unexpected vacancy became available. We haven't looked back since. Kim has been a valuable member of our Design Team, and we are tremendously sad that she will be leaving us to get her guest house ready for the Spring!

We would like to thank Kim for all the amazing projects that she has created in her short time with us, and just want to say that she will be missed - a truly talented crafter!
