All a crafter needs, Our Betty stamps for just £1.00!

Good afternoon everyone,

I know everyone thinks I've gone a little mad but I've decided to add more Funky Hand stash to my £1.00 sale over on the Funky Hand website. This time as well as all the craft CD ROMs you will find the Our Betty clear stamp sets.

These stamp collection are made up of loads of high quality acrylic clear stamps.  There's a 'Betty' image on each and then loads of other things that go perfectly with her, some really handy sentiments.

Betty is a girl after my own heart, she isn't a skinny minny and she likes her cakes, tea, handbags and of course wine!!

She was priced as £7.99 so grabbing her for £1.00 means that if you buy all three sets you are making a huge saving of £21.00

So, I have to get back to work lots of new things to finish off.  Speak again soon.

A 'Fading' Beauty of a card!

Hi everyone,

With all the madness here in the Garden Studio because of the £1.00 CD sale, which is still going on over on the website by the way, I haven't been able to craft at all. Boo!  So, I though I would share a few of the cards that the Design Team have been creating and sharing over on the                          Get Funky and Craft Blog.  To give you a bit of inspiration from them whilst I am trying to keep my head above the sea of CD packages!

Here is a lovely card made by Sammylou using the Fading Beauty backing paper download collection.

Lou made this fabby aeroplane using the Steam Funk download.  How great is this?

Mareleen made this lovely love themed card using the Georgie Love Banner digital stamp.

Debbie created this 'die'tastic card using backing papers from the Minty Madness downloadable collection

 and finally Kathy showed us that you can create all year around with Funky Hand Christmas themed downloads by making this gift bag using the Sleigh Ride backing paper download,

So, there is a bit of inspiration from the Funky Hand DT.  I hope that you enjoyed having a look.
Don't forget that you can see the DT creations first hand by visiting their Funky Hand Blog Get Funky and Craft.  For more Funky Hand fabness why not 'like' our Facebook page or join the Facebook Group? We'd love to have you there for a good ole' chat. :)

Until next time.

FLASH SALE £1.00 Funky Hand CDs

Hello all!
I headed into the stockroom yesterday and started a 'good old' clean out!  While I was in there I decided to have a Flash Sale.  So, all the Funky Hand CD ROMs that are available on the Funky Hand website are, for a short time, just £1.00 each.

All the CDs are included Papercraft Factory and the Original CDs.  If you have any gaps in your Funky Hand CD collection then now is the time to fill them.

There are only a few copies allocated to the sale for each CD, some more than others depending on the stock when those allocated copies have gone..they are gone!

See you over on the website

Making the most of your digital stamps..

Hello everyone,

I hear regularing from crafters who either use digital stamps or normal stamps, or they don't, that they don't use them more than about twice before they are forgotten about as they are worried that all their cards will look the same.

That got me thinking. I thought I would share the idea that I had that might help..

This is a image that I drew this week for on a card for my friends birthday.  It's not a digital stamp yet.. maybe I should release it.  What do you think?

Now, I'm no fantastic colourer so bare with me with the following coloured images.  This is the first version that I created for going on my friends card.  All pastel, bright and happy.

Here it is on the finished card just so I can share that with you as well. :)

So, I then tried to look at the image in a different way..

This time I coloured it as if it was night time and the street light was just lighting a bit of the street.  Add a different sentiment and this image can now go on a completely different sort of card.  It would be perfect to send to a friend or family member that was having a tough time.

So, before you put that stamp to the back of the drawer or archive it on your PC drive take a look at it again.  Can you colour and mount it in a different way and use it for something else?

Until next time

Special offer you don't want to miss!

Hi everyone!
I'm really excited to tell you about the special offer that is on over on my website.  I'm having a bit of a clear up and I thought it might be nice to offer you all a really great offer while I'm working on the nightmare that is my stockroom! So, here it is..

Yep, every downloadable collection and digital stamp on is only £1.00! It's not going to be available forever of course.  Everything will go back to it's normal price on Friday 22nd August at midnight.  So there isn't too much time to waste.

When you think that some of the wordbook downloads are priced a £4.59 there are some serious deals to be had!  Am I mad?  I must be, but not for long!!

Grab a few deals while you can.
Until next time

This months Forgotten Funky..

It's the last Friday of the month so that means a new 'Forgotten Funky' blog post from my wonderful DT members.

'Forgotten Funky' what is that?  You might be asking.  Well, each month the Funky Hand Design Team members choose a Funky Hand download collection and they revisit it, making new cards with it.  It's great to see what they create this time around.  Also it reminds me what I have created in the past!

This months it is the backing paper download collection Rainbow Polkadots.

Here are some of the new creations that the DT have made..

You can see more fab creations over on the DT blog  Get Funky & Craft.  Actually if you haven't visited there before you will find loads of posts from the Design Team showing you new creations, tutorials and lots more.  Take a look and be inspired!

Until next time.

Something a bit off topic..

Good morning everyone,

Things have been a bit hectic around here recently. (When are they not? I hear you ask!)  We, Ian and me, have just come back from a fantastic holiday with our friends.  We were only away for a week but while we were away we did NOTHING! It's amazing how just having some time away from home, work, life in general can revitalise you isn't it?

Though it didn't last for long as we have only been back a few days and our little dog Travis had to go back into the vets to have another operation on his elbow.  I'm not sure if I told you about his first operations in February earlier this year.  Well, the left hand leg has never really improved so after six months of physio, he had to go back under the knife yesterday.

He is a very sad little chap today.  He's not supposed to get off his bed for five days except to visit the garden for the toilet.  Though that is pretty hard for me to make happen as you can imagine.

So, me and Travis are locked, well a baby gate is blocking the door, in my office all day for the next week.  Until Ian gets here and he can be carried up and down the stairs. I'm not strong enough to carry him. :(

It does mean I can really concentrate on creating new products and planning for the Christmas period.  Arrgghh! I'm sorry I know I have just mentioned the 'C' word, but it has to be worked on so stuff is ready when you might want it.

I have a few plans that will be going ahead in the near future, hopefully they will all work out how I am planning.. we shall see!

I'll leave you there and get myself a cuppa.  I doubt Travis will want one, though he might be tempted with a chicken breakfast. Ugh!

Wash It All Away with new downloads!

Hi everyone,

Here I am again to show you some new download releases that have just been put onto the website.  This time there are two digital stamps and one backing paper collection.  Enough of my talk lets take a look,

These coffee takeaway cups have proved popular so I thought I would draw a couple more to add to your options, 'Thanks A Latte' would be great to send to a friend to just say thanks for being my friend.

Second coffee cup, Full Of Beans, people we know can get sick but that doesn't mean that we want to send a boring Get Well Soon card. A card to pep them up can be just what they need!

When I started designing this Wash It All Away backing paper download I didn't plan that it would be good for men but, with these deep colour and slightly grunged effect it has turned out just to be perfect for that.  It would be good for other stuff as well but aren't we all always a bit lacking craft stuff for the male creations we need to make?

Here's a card I made with the Wash It All Away backing papers,

I was pretty happy with it until I wrote on the little paper attached to the clip board.  I think I will pull the paper off and print something and re attach it.  I thought I'd share it with you anyway.  Feel free to agree with me!

OK, that's me done for this post.

Speak to you again very soon.

Happy Fathers Day!

It's Fathers Day, the day when crafters/card makers everywhere breath easier as super hard mens cards are behind us for another year!

Why are mens cards so hard?  I can't answer that question, but they are.  Here is a picture of the cards I made for our Dads this year.

There have both been created using the Funky Hand backing paper download Boys Will Be Boys.  The toppers are my own design on photoshop.

To have a closer look pop over to the Funky Hand DT Blog.  Get Funky and Craft.

So, as well as visiting blogs do you frequent any other social media outlets?  If you do, did you know that Funky Hand has a presence on most of them?  If not, why not visit us on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest? There are fun things going on on all of them.

Take a look at the latest cards made by the Design Team for this months Forgotten Funky Summer Wedding on Pinterest. Very soon there will be competitions and give-aways happening on our Facebook page and I'm around on Twitter alot of the time and happy to have a chat..anything to keep me away from doing my accounts.  Hehe!

I hope to see you over there.
Speak again very soon
