We’re sorry you’ve had a wait longer than expected; we just couldn’t wait to tell you about our wonderful new club!
Some of you may have already seen the sneak peeks of the exclusive Members’ Free Gift, which is called Dragonfly Dance. It’s so beautiful! There are some sneak peeks in Project Magazine Issue 11, and we’ll share some more photos with you next week.

We hope you are all exited for our Pick of the Week! We have had some great feedback about Decadent Days on Facebook, and it’s nice to know you all love the art deco theme!
The shows are going to be great, I’ll be kicking off the POW launch earlier than usual at 8am, so don’t forget to set your alarms! I’ll be handing the POW baton to Ruth, who will then be followed by Phill for the final shows. I’m sure that you will all agree it’ll be great to have Phill back on our screens!
Love Anne-Marie Xx

On Friday I promised to tell you more about our next product launch… and here are all the juicy details! On Friday I’ll be launching our Pick of the Week shows, and introducing you to our next collection, Decadent Days and Glamorous Nights.
This new collection features stunning art-deco illustrations of stylish ladies and gentlemen of the Twenties and Thirties that have been lovingly draped with the most elegant silver foiled accents. The colour palette for this kit is so refreshing, and features beautiful shell pink, duck-egg blues and pretty mint greens which really highlight the detailing in the artwork.
We also have a very special buy one get one free deal on the show! When you buy the Decadent Days kit, you’ll get the Glamorous Nights collection absolutely FREE! This is such a great deal; I’d really recommend you stock up on your Hunkydory stash while its on offer!
Keep your eyes on Facebook this week as we’ll be sharing some sneak peeks to get you ready for the show on Friday at 12pm on C&C!

In Issue 118 of the magazine (which is out now), there is a free Hunkydory Flutterbye Wishes Luxury Paper Collection worth £11.99! The kit includes six A4 sheets of foiled and die-cut toppers and 16 sheets of pretty background papers. What a great way to kick start your summer crafting!
The magazine features lots of inspiration and special projects; we just love this pretty gift bag and special little box which are great for presents!
We’ve had lots of comments on Facebook about Issue 118 of Cardmaking and Papercraft – and it sounds like its selling out fast! So make sure you snap up your copy today!

What a busy week it’s been for me! My week started by preparing demonstrations for our Hobbies and Pastimes POD shows, before driving down to Peterborough to the Ideal World studios on Tuesday.
The POD shows continued on Wednesday, and if you watched the shows you’ll know how much fun I had. I received so many lovely comments from our fans, and it sounds like so many of you really enjoyed the Hobbies and Pastimes shows, so thank you for watching. I guest presented eight shows on Wednesday, with the last one being at 7pm on Ideal World. After the show I hopped in the car and headed back to (not so sunny) Preston!
I’m back in the office today and plans for the Great British Craft Festival are really coming together. I’m currently co-ordinating the workshops and we are making decisions about who to get on board to host workshop number 4. If you have any ideas, or would like to see someone in particular please get in touch on Facebook. We’d love to know what you think!
Once the workshops are confirmed I’ll then begin organising the Make and Takes, which is always really exciting as I like to choose a wide range of craft activities to take place throughout the day. This way everyone gets to learn something different!
We are also preparing for our next product launch which will be Pick of the Week on Create and Craft on Friday 24th May. The new collection is called Decadent Days and many of you may have seen the sneak peek in the new Project Magazine Issue 11. If not, I promise to share some photos with you next week!
