Make Shift is all Go

September 14, 2013

Hi everyone

I am so excited to announce, after several months of hard work, we have finally managed to get a lease signed on a shop in Lower Hutt and Make Shift is now a real shop!.  We open the beginning of next month and we are in a great location with a wonderful shop layout with two workshop areas in the back.  I would like to thank my fellow Collective who helped to make this happen through lots of trials and tribulations.  They have been amazing and deserve to make a success of this venture.   So if you happen to be in Lower Hutt, Wellington make sure that you come and visit us.  The address is 8 Margaret Street, opposite Queensgate Shopping Complex.  We would love to see you there so please spread the word as we would really love to make this a success and a place for local people to sell their handcrafted creations.

I am also excited about getting my Consultants kit from Close to My Heart and my first order.   I am like a kid in a lolly store with so much to choose from lol.  And the papers (especially the Chantilly papers) are so lovely I didn’t want to cut them up to make cards.  But I did manage to steel myself to make the first cut and here is one of the first cards that I have made with my new products.
Chantilly card

Materials used are from CTMH (of course):

Chantilly paper

Chantilly Complements

Pink Glitter Gems

Sparkles Clear Flourish – small

Sentiment from the You are My Happy stamp set

Inks – Desert Sand for distressing and Cotton Candy for the sentiment

Cardstock – Bamboo

The You be Happy stamp set is an exclusive stamp set that is only available for this month and it is great value for only $15 when you spend $75.  This set has a retail value of $77 so it is great value and a good stamp set to get started.

I will be busy making more cards for Make Shift and will look at doing some workshops there for those who are interested in learning how to use these great products to make some amazing cards.  I am planning to do a chocolate themed workshop which should be a lot of fun.  I will keep you posted.

In the meantime I hope everyone has a great weekend.

Happy Crafting.
