  • Looking back at the past year - Giovanna Zara



    We say a sad farewell to Gio today as she heads for pastures new. Gio said " I enjoyed a lot trying new products and pushing my boundaries to create new pieces with old craft stuff from my stash. I really like the PDF format of every project, very easy to collect the step by step of your favourite ones.

    I love the Q&L challenge, I love my new ArtJournal, a place where to experiment and be free, so inspiring!

    I'm going to have a break from the Design Team. So it's a bit sad after 3 years and a half, but I have to focus more on me and my career as a creative. I really thank all the staff in the shop and all the talented members of the team, present and past. It was a wonderful experience, and I learned so much!"

  • Looking back at the past year - Dawn Heald



    This week the DT are looking back on the past year. Dawn said" I joined The Craft Barn DT earlier this year. It was the icing on the crafty cake for me. I was so chuffed and when telling my kids, they too joined in with my excitement. So big smiles all round. I've tried new ideas and lots of different products through my Design Team projects and hope they've inspired other crafters to try them out. Crafting excites me because of the never-ending ways to create and make, buying new stash and giving them. This year I've enjoyed experimenting more with mixed media, drawing Zentangle and I discovered Deco Mache papers which I've used in a few projects this year because they're fabulous for creating a decorative base which you can simply leave as is or layer on with stencils, paints, embellishments etc"

    Black and White pinwheel from Dawn today. Dawn said" For my project I've taken the opposites of the colour wheel, black and white. I've also incorporated another opposites with card and acetate showing clear and opaque. Making these pinwheels were a lot of fun and easy to make using the new We Are Memory Keepers Pinwheel board. I did have bother getting the photo to look as good as it does in real life".

  • Opposites Attract - Neil Walker



    Two stunning cards from Neil today, one for Him and one for Her. Neil said " It's often said that men's cards are so difficult to make. Well, today I thought I'd try to show you that it doesn't have to be so hard. 2 cards - one for a man and one for a woman. Both identical in layout, techniques and products used with two exceptions - colour choice and black gems on one, pearls on the other. I guess you'll be the judge on how successful I've been......."
