Hello everyone, a quick warning this could be a long post with lots of pics.

I'm sat here watching Hels wishing I had the time to get my melt pot out.  Its a fantastic tool that you can do so much with and it's well worth investing in one.

Nikky Over at Polkadoodles has been working her fingers to the bone producing even more lovely stuff for you.  She certainly is on fire at the moment with so many new products I would be here all night just listing them all. Hot off the press is the new Fredericka range and you can get them all on a CD, as digi downloads, an A6 printed pack of digis and an A6 coloured printed pack that you can use your dies on for some quick and easy toppers, also there is a gorgeous 8x8 paper pack to go with them all.  There really is something for everyone there whatever you crafting preferences are.  Its really worth keeping an eye on the new products section.  If you're popping over there for a little snoop, check out all the new clear stamps too, the Studio 12 and Susan Wackesser ranges are fabby and work really well together.  If you like Art Journaling, Mixed Media or Altered Art then these will be right up your street.

Keep checking the Polkadoodles and Studio 12 Blog for the weekly challenge (every Fri with fab prizes up for offer) and the studio 12 postings 3 times a week (Sun, Tues and Thurs).

Now for the Creative Expressions samples for the C&C show last week.  There are some tags missing because I only made them in the hotel the night before the show, so as yet they haven't been photographed.  Creative Expressions have brought out a little magic pot, pure genius in my humble opinion, its the Flake and Glitter Highlighting glue.  It's great for touching up designs, or using on embellishments as you can get into all the nooks and crannies with the little brush.  I wont tell you how long I have waited for something like this.  I have been gilding for quite some years now and this has to be one of the most useful things going.  The pots of gilding flakes are really big too, masses of flakes that will keep you going for ages.
 This if one of the Gilding Flakes pots that I've decorated.
 I love these Heartfelt Creations Stamps, really lovely big bold designs.
I love the Butterfly dies they are so versatile with the two layers, only one used here though.  The inked areas were dusted with the Cosmic Shimmer Mica Powders for this card, it gives it such a lovely shimmer.
 Heartfelt creations and Justright stamps here
 Painting with Mica Powders and spritzing with them above.
 This is one of the cameos that I gilded.  its hard to see the detail really but it does look good in the flesh.
I was going to add the Monkton Elm Demo samples but I really think this is enough for now, so I'll show them in the next post.
