This week at LynDel 3D Cardmaking

So much for being back to normal this week, I am still waiting for it to happen! The shop has been extra busy with customers finally remembering they need Christmas stock and the phone has been running hot, but I have got all the stock back online so job completed finally. I am looking forward to some nice weekend weather so I can mow the lawns and do some gardening, I used Weed and Feed on the lawns before we went to Tassie and it worked beautifully - by the time we got back the place was looking like a jungle so lesson learnt and I will make sure I have nothing on before doing it again. We must be going to have some consistent spring weather soon, I still have my nursery voucher to spend, just waiting for some decent days so I can buy plants and put them in the ground straight away. Does anyone have any ideas for getting rid of violets. I have a large patch at the side of the shop which have white flowers (no smell on them though) and they are taking over the whole garden. I pulled them out last year but they are back bigger and better than ever. Had they been lovely fragrant purple ones I wouldn’t have minded, this is the patch that I have my freesias in as well and I want to divide up my clivia’s more and plant them all along the back of the patch but I have to get rid of those violets first!!

The retail store is open Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 10am to 4pm. We will also open via appointment where it is viable.
There is parking at the rear of the house in front of the shop so please utilise this facility rather than parking on the street.

New Stock

This week in New Stock I have some more cutting dies from Kaisercraft, Magic Shrink wraps from Hearty Crafts, 2 new Stitch & Do kits, 2 new Dot & Do kits, and die cut 3D sheets from Anita’s as well as other bits and pieces.

In The Spotlight

Craft Creations Polar Bear Step Cards

This week I am using the Craft Creations - Polar Bears die cut sheet and the Craft Creations Long Side Step Cards to make 2 cards from the one die cut sheet. Both are simple to make and as the cards used are already cut and scored it is simply a matter of folding them and they are ready to use. I have used all the pieces from the die cut sheet, normally used to make one card, however with a bit of playing around it will easily make 2 cards.
