Well New Years Eve is upon us and very shortly we will be celebrating with a glass or two to see in the New Year. But first we wanted to take a quick look back over the year as 2011 has been a momentous year for Inspire Creationz.
Firstly, we were able to launch our craft classes in our new workshop inside the grounds of Belgrave Hall, Leicester. These classes have proved really popular and quite a few classes for early 2012 are already fully booked. We really have a good group of supporters that have helped to shape the classes and without this support this new venture may not have worked - THANK YOU everyone!
Secondly, we were also able to open our shop inside Leicester Indoor Market (Floor 3 C10). Offering cardmaking and scrapbooking supplies. Again, a big THANK YOU to our loyal customer base that has helped see our product ranges expand no end!!!!
Here is to a really crafty 2012 - we have lots more plans ready to launch and "things can only get better"!!!!
Happy New Year xxxx

Quick post tonight, just wanted to share with you this handmade Wooden Snowman Heart decoration I have made for our new shop. When I saw these hearts I just knew what I wanted to make and the Snowman Decoupage & Papers & Ribbon works wonders. I have bought more hearts so will be making lots more to sell in our shop as we now have a dedicated handmade gifts area. I will post pictures soon

Sorry for not posting but we have some really exciting news - we have now opened our new shop inside Leicester Indoor Market - C10. On Saturday, we decorated the space, our husbands built shelving and stock was transferred over in just over 5 hours!! We were all exhausted but it was really worth it.
We started trading from the market in October with a small stall to test the water and were delighted how busy we became very quickly with lots of loyal customers. As the weeks progressed we felt that the space was not big enough for our plans and were very fortunate that the shop opposite became empty - FATE..
Our new shop will allow us to offer demonstrations & classes, sell handmade gifts and cards as well as vastly expanding our product ranges to include Tim Holtz, Pro-Markers, Kaisercraft, Echo Park, 7Gypsies and lots lots more... The new Kaisercraft tag pads are amazing!
If you are in Leicester or are passing, please come and say hello. We are on the 3rd Floor, C10 and offer a loyalty card for our customers.

Where has the time gone - only 14 days left before Christmas and now on a mad card making frenzy. I always leave cards until late as I seem to get more inspiration that way but there is really not many more posting days left.
I just love the leaf stamp that I used to make these wreaths for the centre of the cards and just by adding different backing papers and bazzill card can really make each card different. Better get back to it, please pop back soon
