John Lockwood & Watch it Wednesday

Hi Everyone!

It's John Lockwood day today, so we have another gorgeous project of his to share with you. We are also revisiting another previous episode of Crafting My Style with Sue Wilson; Black & White Celebration.

As you know, we recently introduced our new DT team, and you may be wondering why we haven't shared anything with you yet that they have created. Well you haven't got much longer to wait now, because the new team will be starting next week! They have just received their first goody bags and are working hard behind the scenes to create some stunning makes to share! Next Wednesday will be the first day for new team member, Andy Pearson, so Wednesdays are soon to become 'boys day' on the Creative Expressions blog :)

Wonderful by John Lockwood

Pretty in Pink? Nah! Perfect in Purple! This is another beautiful make by John Lockwood.

John has used the Salzburg Craft Die for the delicate surrounding of the sentiment, and teamed it with this gorgeous ribbon!

Head over to John's blog to find out more...

Watch it Wednesday

This week for 'Watch it Wednesday', we are visiting another favourite; the Black & White Celebration Card!

Tune in to find out how to make this elegant make.

But whatever the weather, we have some great makes to share with you today, including a new episode of Crafting My Style with Sue Wilson and projects from the wonderfully talented Pam Smith and Donna Ratcliff!

Last Make by Donna Ratcliff

As you know, we have recently had to say goodbye to some of our Design Team as the 2013/14 term has come to a close. Today, we have to say goodbye to Donna Ratcliff!

We have loved all of the makes that Donna has produced for us over the course of the last year - Donna is unbelievably talented and we will miss her very much. We hope you all wish her well as she continues her crafting journey....

You can still stay in touch with Donna though, by following her blog!
