New CD Wishes & Kisses Launched

I'm very happy to let you know that our new craft CD Wishes and Kisses has now been launched on our website  It's priced at £15.99.  We are very pleased to be offering it to you at a lower price and that we have been able to lower the prices of all the Papercraft Factory CDs Dreams come True, Colour Me Happy, Craft The Year Away, Happy Happy Birthday and Twelve Crafters Crafting from £16.99 to £15.99 as well.  In these tough economic times it's the least we could do try to help you keep crafting!

I thought I would share a few more fab card makes from my Design Team that you wont see on the Wishes & Kisses CDs gallery just yet I hope you enjoy them and are inspired to get crafting!

Aren't they all just wonderful? I'm so lucky to have such a fantastic Design Team.  Right, Wishes & Kisses is released and I just need to start getting ready for the launch on Create and Craft TV on the 15th June (more info about that closer to the time) But now I think I might just need a fresh cup of coffee!

Thanks for your support on this blog and the Get Funky Challenge Blog, sorry it's taken so long for this new CD to be released but sometimes things are worth waiting for..I hope you think so anyway!!

Speak again very soon

Just a quick message

I may have mentioned that we have a new CD being released TOMORROW! Well, here is the proof that we are all ready and waiting for your orders..

Sorry about the state of my desk..and the state of me !  But I put it down to all the hard work I've been doing recently! (and lack of any make up of course oops!) The new Wishes & Kisses CD ROM will be available tomorrow on our website

Oh, and the other thing I almost forgot to tell you will be priced at £15.99 and ALL the other Papercraft Factory CD ROMS are also dropping their prices permanently to £15.99 as well.  Times are hard for us all at the moment and I thought that Funky Hand needed to recognise that and help out, even just a little, to keep crafters being able to afford to keep crafting!

See you all again tomorrow where I'll share a few of the amazing creations that my Design Team have created using this all new Funky Hand CD.

I mentioned that I have been listening to my customers and this Papercraft Factory CD has some extras on the always popular Wordbook Generator..well 26 extras..lowercase letters.  Yep, we have added lowercase letters to the generator so last night we were working it out and with all twelve colour collections added together you will have 70,200 options for making your wordbook pages! Now that's alot of different will be hard for anyone else to ever make exactly the same wordbook as you now!

Well, I'll be back very soon to let you know all the other details.  I have to rush off now and finish all my work to make sure that you can actually see the new release on the website and buy it on Thursday!  I'm very excited about sharing it with you.  I hope you like it as much as I do!

Welcome to our new Design Team Members

Firstly I want to thank everyone who applied for the positions that we had available on the Funky Hand Design Team.  Everyone was so good it took me along time to make the choice of who to invite to join the gang.  As I said to everyone who applied, all the applications were fantastic.  I had to choose crafters who augmented the Design Team members we already have with us and that took me along time.

But finally I am please to introduce to you the four new members of the Funky Hand Design Team:

We are so pleased to have them joining us, and if you click on their names you will be able to visit their blogs and see the wonderful work that they have been doing. So, welcome to all four of you. While you are visiting their blogs maybe leave them a message I know they would all love to hear from you.

On other Funky Hand business, I'm pleased to say that the new craft CD Wishes & Kisses will be available to order from our website in the very near future.  I can't wait for you to be able to see everything that is included on this one and share some fab makes from the Design Team and me..I suppose I should make an effort to create something as well!!

Speak to you all very soon.

May's Get Funky Challenge

I know, I should be ashamed three days late posting about my own Funky Hand Design Teams Challenge blog Get Funky..I'm sorry girls and everyone else who's reading excuses will be below.

Ruth is our Hostess with the most-est this month and she has set us a challenge of creating using Spots and Flowers here is Ruths fab handbag creation to get us all started..

Now, remember to join in with the Get Funky Challenge blog you need to include at least one Funky Hand product.  Fear not if you don't have any Funky Hand stash yet I have supplied you as always with a Funky Freebie on my website to help you to be able to join in.  Remember whoever is the lucky winner picked by Ruth from all the entries gets to pick a Funky Hand download as their prize.

Right onto my excuses for the lateness of this post.. I have been going through all the applications to join our Funky Hand Design Team and it was a tough job..everyone was just so good!  But finally I have been able to pick some new Design Team members and I will introduce them to you very soon.

The second reason I am tardy with my Get Funky post is because I was getting my NEW CD to the manufacturers!  Yes at long last WISHES & KISSES is finished.  It will be available to purchase on the Funky Hand website soon..I'll keep you informed of the launch date.  I'm very excited to be able to bring you a new CD as it's been a while.

Right excuses made, Ruths Get Funky challenge launched, a little late but done.  I'd better get back to my craft table to make a start on creating some samples for the new CD so everyone can see what they will be getting.

Speak again very soon.

Wedding card and apologies..

Ok I'll start with the apology.  I'm sorry that I haven't had a chance to work my way through all of the applications to join my Design Team.  I'm not going to bore you with all the reasons why I'm so busy at the moment (new CD!) but I wanted to say that I will be in touch with everyone who took the time to apply shortly and then announce my new DT members.  I actually want to blame everyone who applied, you have all been so good it's taking me a long time to decide as I can't fit you all in :(  Right on to my latest bit of crafting..

One of my friends, Helen, got married recently on a beautiful beach so, the wedding 'Do' for all of us back here in Newcastle was last weekend.  We had a great time and the Bride looked beautiful in her wedding dress.  I made a wedding card using stamps that I haven't had out for literally years!!

The base card is one of the kraft cards that I purchased from Handy Hippo a few weeks ago and the backing paper is from my Happy Happy Birthday craft CD ROM. The wedding cake stamp is a Hampton Arts clear stamp that I have had for years and NEVER used before!  The Love sentiment stamp was from a large set of wooden stamps I bought when I was on holiday in the US many years ago and I 'happened' across a Michaels craft store. If I remember correctly I nearly spent all the holiday money there!  I did a tiny bit of colouring of the roses on the wedding cake and outlined the image with promarkers.

To finish it off I added a love heart pin to the ribbon and it was finished.

So, there's my little bit of crafting fitted in last weekend.  I can't wait to have time to really get some crafting done.  I'm afraid when you are working on a new CD and it's getting close to completion and ready for the manufacturers thats all you can focus on.  But soon I will be able to start crafting with it and I wont feel naughty as I have to make samples !!

Speak again very soon with details of our new Funky Hand Design Team Members.

At last some crafting!

The Funky Hand Design Team call out is now closed so I will be going through all the applications over the next week to find some new Funky Hand Gang members.  It's not going to be easy as we have had some amazing applications.  So, I'll be back in a week with details of the new teamies.  I can promised that everyone who applied will hear directly from me.

OK, that said what have I been up to lately? Well not much crafting to tell you the truth :(  When we are working on a new CD release it becomes all consuming of everyones time but I did get a chance to play a few days ago so, I thought I'd share the card with you.

I enjoyed making this card as I mixed up Funky Hand craft downloads, unreleased templates and some new stash.  I'll explain more..

The backing papers that I used for this card are from the Funky Hand Download Steam Funk that has been very popular with you all out there..thank you very much!  The sentiment was taken from a different download though that's from the Spring Has Sprung Collection.

The flower on the card is a new template what will be available on our next craft CD ROM  Wishes and Kisses. That should be released by the end of this month/ beginning of June.  We are very excited about this new CD because we have listened to our Papercraft Factory CD customers and answered at least one of your requests..I'll keep that a little secret for a while longer's taken a while for us to get done hence the later release of the CD than we had hoped!

Here's a closer look at that's super easy to create.  It would need to be..I've been able to make it!!

The base card that I used was some fab new stash I treated myself to from Handy Hippo, here's the link to the Kraft cards and envelopes they have for sale.

Right well that's me for another post.  I'd best get back to looking at applications from crafters to join our Design Team.

Speak to you very soon.
