New Arrivals - Just in time for Christmas (cards!)

This week has seen more new arrivals at Nutcrafters HQ. Visit to check out our range of Promarkers (more on the way!) We think they would be just the thing to use with the new Greetings Farm set - Xmas Sweeties.

Don't forget the candy that's up for grabs - just for reviewing your favourite products! See the post below for more details.

Website Word Candy!

With Katie busy catching some sun at the moment, I decided it was time to get busy, spuce up the Nutcrafters website and make it a little more interactive - but I need your help. So, here goes!
If you write a review for any product we sell at (it doesn't have to be Nutshells!) then you will automatically be entered into a draw for the following candy - High Hopes Follow the Stars, Merry Christmas, Think Snow and your choice of Nutshells stamp.

The reviews don't have to be long, I just thought that it would be fun to see what you all think of the products we stock - which are your favourites? Writing a review couldn't be simplier, just log on to your account at , find the product you want to review, click review and type away! The more reviews you write, the more times you get entered into the draw!

The winner will be announced on 1st November - leaving plenty of time to make all those Christmas cards!
Happy reviewing!
Colette (and Katie!)

We're Loving Pink!

We're only just about halfway through the month but it is crystal clear that you are loving Pecan Nut and her Pink Frosting digi download! So many of you have downloaded her already, we thought we would share with you the creations of our new Guest Design Team member, Penni.

We think you'll agree - she looks good enough to eat!

Don't forget to check out the new Nutty Nutshells challenge on our sister blog!

Holiday Season Already?

No sooner had Katie started her well earned two week holiday when we received a new shipment from The Greetings Farm. So, whilst Katie catches some rays in the USA, we are treated to some uber-cute new designs. From the super sweet HG Laundry girl to some new Wild Sprouts - Savannah and the festive Vivi.

Not forgetting the boys, there is also the My Guy Ian set - out to rival Miss Anya for topseller spot!

Take a look at - only whilst stocks last!

Our new Nutty Nutshells Wednesdays have begun. The Challenge is to create a Halloween themed card or craft project using the FREE Pecan Nut Witch digi download.
For my card I have coloured the image with Promarkers and placed her on a Nestie Circle to give the impression of the moon. Pecan has been embellished with Stickles as has the moon and card background and finished with Sizzix swirls and Prima Crystals.

I hope you have the time to join in with our new challenge. There are two weeks to enter, and you can find details of the prize on the post below.

Thanks for stopping by, Katie.
