I've wanted some Spellbinders Nestabilities for ages, so was very pleased when I went down to Pickleberry Papercrafts a couple of weeks ago and found out Kate was stocking them (they are available to buy online too!)

After a quick demo from Kate I was more than convinced and bought Labels One and asked Kate to order me in Labels Four.

Well Labels four arrived last week, and I couldn't believe just how little the smallest die is! Just to prove it:

So Kate challenged me to make a card with it, and never one to back out on a challenge, here is the result:

So the next issue was storing them, a quick search on ebay for self adhesive magnetic sheets and voila! Problem solved: (see there are benefits to not having a beautifully decorated craft room - you can stick stuff on the walls without caring!)

I'm down at Pickleberry again on Saturday for the crop, so watch this space there may be more nesties appearing soon!!

Busy busy busy!

It really has been all go here at Looby Crafts HQ this week!! My first event is coming up on the 26th, so I'm busy making lots of stock, ordering more carrier bags and business cards etc. and I've had several custom orders too!

So if you're after a special card or gift - contact me for a custom order!

Only 2 layouts?!

Well I spent Saturday at Pickleberry again, but only managed a very poor 2 layouts (oh and a card) - a combination of lack of mojo, and too much chatting to Kate!!

This first one I did using the Nonsense papers from We R Memory Keepers (just love these!) the picture was taken last week, when Todd decided to have a snooze on my desk WHILST I was working!! Thank god Yorkie's don't shed their hair!! Ash came up with the title for this one - he's a big Scooby do fan!

The second one is from the new Juicy Fruit kit from Crafty Templates, I love this kit, it's full of really different stuff, including some kawaii goodies which I just adore (and already have a BIG stash of thanks to Etsy!)

Last night I started a fab little mini book with this kit too, but that's going to have to go on hold as I've just had some custom orders come in!

Lots of new items!

Have added lots of new items to my MISI store over the last couple of days - more cards, gift boxes, clipboards, trinket boxes, trays etc.

By far my favourite is this card I made last night using the gorgeous Mermaid Anya from the Greeting Farm - loving Anya with pink hair!
