Wednesday Creative - It's blue and me from John Lockwood

It's the 1 April and although tempted to fool around, Creative Expression's design team have already been hard at work with a range of Phill Martin's Cosmic Shimmer colours and John's versatile stamp sets.  John has created a beautifully blue toned card with a pretty contrasting white daisy, finishing off with a delightful sentiment from his Daisy Elements Clear Stamp set. Go to John's blog now to find out how he achieved this stunning card.

Andy Pearson has 'Gone all decadent!' 

Sounds intriguing and I'm sure most of us will want to read more to find out what Andy's up to this month!
Like John, he's used Phill's Cosmic Shimmer colours and John's Clear Acrylic stamps to create a chic purple and black deluxe design, which looks both classy and expensive. Get a little decadent with Andy, visit his

March has gone out with a bang with Pam's stunning design using our new Couture Creation dies.
