Happy New Year!

Hi everyone

I want to wish all the Hope and Chances Creativity customers
a very Happy New Year.

Thank you for your custom and for keeping me busy.
I've learned so much about craft, probably way too much for
a 20 year old.

Next year there will be some great changes with the website,
 tutorials coming your way - I'm setting up videos with Mum,
this could be interesting!

Also a little bit of news, later in the year I'll be stepping away from the site 
as I'm planning on going to University.
Mum is doing less travelling in 2017 so will be taking over I'm sure!

Thanks again and here's wishing you all ...

All the best.

Hello everyone

If you follow Mum's blog you may have seen the news
about a certain author writing a certain book.
Yes this book is about Mum and I'm in it too along with my 
two cats Lily and Pixel, I'm really pleased about that. 

The hardback is due out 15 December and is available to pre-order 
now.  Hardbacks are not really available in the supermarkets
so best go to Amazon for those - click here for the details -
it's the perfect Christmas gift - along with craft stuff too!

Here is what the book is about - 

Christie Chapman is a single working mother who spends her days commuting to her secretarial job in London and looking after her teenage son, Finn. It can be tough just getting through the day but Christie has always found comfort in her love of crafting and any spare time she has is spent in her parents' summerhouse working on her beautiful creations. From intricately designed birthday cards to personalised gifts, Christie's flair for the handmade knows no bounds and it's not long before opportunity comes knocking. All of a sudden Christie sees a different future for her and Finn - one full of hope and possibility, and if the handsome Max Alexander is to be believed, one full of love too. It's all there for the taking.
And then, all of sudden, Christie's world is turned upside down.
Christie knows that something has to give, but what will she choose? Will she give up her dreams and the chance of real love? What price will she pay for doing the right thing? Can Christie find her happy ending in . . . Paper Hearts and Summer Kisses.

 Mum and Carole are planning lots of events so please look out 
on Facebook and on Mum's blog.

I'm hoping the fame doesn't go to her head, she'll be a nightmare to live with! 

All the best.

Big Blossom

Hi everyone

If you are a fan of Bitty Blossoms from Spellbinders 
then you will definitely like Big Blossom

The die measuring 4.2 x 4 inches can be used alone or along 
with Bitty Blossoms to make an amazing bouquet. 

Big Blossom works exactly the same as the smaller ones.
Here's some step by step photos.

Once it is cut you start rolling from the outer edge to the middle.
Using the end of the Tool n' One helps.

Once rolled the middle circle is the base, fix with glue.

The leaves are from Bitty Blossoms.

Bend the petals to make a realistic flower.

Big Blossom is now in stock and available on the website here.

Bye for now and all the best.
