It is that time again and we are looking for some new crafter's to join our team.
We are hoping to snag ourselves a full time DT member and a couple of Guest DT members too, this time though we are shaking things up!

We have a free image for everyone to use on their submissions and a bonus set of complimentary images FREE for everyone who enters.

Our crazy Tea party images have been created especially for this challenge, as this week we are celebrating Colette's wedding with a fun & fantastic 'Mad Hatters Tea Party'.

So if you would like to try out for our DT (and we hope that you do) simply save that Hatter image, create a wonderful card/project with it and link it back to us in the comments below this post with your email address. Alternatively you can email us with your cards at

Our DT call is open until next Sunday, 4th April, 12pm UK time, and the free images will be sent once the DT call has finished.

We look forward to seeing your creations, Katie and Colette.

DT requirements: Our main DT ask is that apart from enjoying our stamps and having fun using them, we require 1 card each week to be created, photographed and sent to us for use on our blog and challenge blog. We are happy for them to be combined with other DT work or challenge entries, but must contain at least one Nutcraftetrs stamp/image.

It's Friday again and we are leaving you with something that will hopefully entice you, and get those creative juices flowing over weekend!
On Monday we are announcing our BIG Design Team call, and to make it extra fun, we have this FREE (yes Free) digi for everyone to use.
And if that wasn't enough, everyone who enters will also receive more FREE c0-ordinating digis!
So we hope you can join us Monday for all the information you need to try out and join the Nutty Nutcrafters Crew!

Have a great Weekend, Katie and Colette.

We have a great new challenge this week over at our Nutshells blog. Challenge #12 is to create something Easter/Spring themed, that's it! Nice, easy and simple, so what are you waiting for.
I have used Spring Harriet, and this is the very first easel card I have made and boy are they addictive! I love how they show off your image and lots more detail than regular folded cards.
I have used papers from my stash, decorated with my boarder punch, and Prima Essentials 7 Indeed flowers with a couple of fancy pins. To keep the card open, I have added a Prima Pebble with a vintage flower design.
We have a very exciting announcement to make on Monday with a free treat for everyone who stops by, but if you can't wait till then, join us again tomorrow for a sneak peak of whats to come!

Thanks for stopping by, Katie.

I hope everyone has that Friday feeling today, these weekends seem to be coming faster and faster!
A week later than planned, we have a fab new challenge over at our Nutshells blog, with not one, but TWO prizes to choose and a stack of great inspiration from our lovely talented DT.
This time we are having a Sketch Challenge. The sketch we are using is by the lovely Maria at Stamping Inspirations. She was sweet enough to allow us to use her fabby sketch for our challenge. The link to her blog is and she does amazing work. You should head on over and take a look.

I have used our newest Nutshell Easter Bo for my card (that large oval really makes me think of Easter eggs.... think I've got chocolate on the brain!)
You have until next Tuesday to enter, and must follow the sketch above and use any stamp stocked in our store.
I hope you can play along, Katie.

Today we have another new Digi to share, Easter Buddy Bear. Our new Buddy image is available from tomorrow as a digital download on our Nutcrafters site.

Perfect for children and adults alike, Easter Buddy and his little bunny Friend are all ready for their egg hunt!
The image has been coloured with Promarkers and I have made a little Easter egg from an oval Nestabilitie and blue and white polka dot ribbon.

Tomorrow we will have our last New digi image to reveal for the week, hope you can join us.

Thanks for stopping by, Katie and Colette.

Wednesday 3 March 2010


Here we are into March already! I am hoping some nice weather will be arriving soon also , but while we wait, we have a few new Spring time images to share.
Available from Friday 5th March, we have 3 new digi stamps in our store, the first of which we are revealing today, meet spring Harriet.
She looks very peaceful reading her book with her little Rabbit companion by her side (or is he a March Hare?)

Harriet has been coloured with Promarkers and the card embellished with Pima E flowers and Crystals, and a Rose Charm.

We hope you can join us tomorrow for another new preview, Thanks for stopping by, Katie and Colette.
