How are you??
I'm so sorry it's been a while since I been on here but I've been away for almost 3 weeks!!! Back to work now though and back to the important business of blogging!!
I know you all must be thinking what's happened to the Challenge - we are still doing it but because of being away this month's challenge has lapsed - so very sorry about that :o( - but ... we are now all back in action after holidays, shop openings etc and are all buzzing to get back to our cards. 
The next challenge will be uploaded here on Friday 15th October with Michelle as our "Guest Challenger" - i'll keep you in suspense as to what the theme will be though :o) check back on the 15th for all the details and our DT cards.
We've had a busy couple of months here at In2Crafting and a few demos along the way - I did colouring techniques and then we had a Do Crafts one and last but certainly not least Di did a Cuttlebug one last week - thank you all so much for coming along and hopefully getting some inspiration
Here are some of the pictures of Di's Demo

and here are some pictures of the beautiful card samples she made :o)

If you want to leave a comment and tell Di how wonderful she is I'm sure she wouldn't mind lol :o)
So ... until the next time I'll say bye for now
Lots of Love

Die Cutting & Embossing with Di Cox

This Saturday ~ 2nd October we have Di demonstrating the varied and wonderful things you can create using a Cuttlebug or Big Shot machine.
Most of our cards and projects have an element of embossing or a die cut on them and you can do so much more with one of these machines.
Come in between 10am and 4pm and see Di - its free to view and also free to park in the main car park on Saturday!
We will also be issuing double points on your Privilege card during the day as well as some offers on the Big Shot Machine (which is in stock) and pre orders for Cuttlebug machine. Unfortunately the European distributor has run out of stock of Cuttlebugs until the end of October. This is a factor outside of our control.
