We have pleasure in providing our latest Newsletter and workshop list. See below. We hope you find this of interest.

Note – This Saturday (17th September).

Just a quick reminder that the Ross Paper craft show is cancelled this Saturday (17th September) but if you want somewhere to go for your crafting fix instead then pop along to Stampers Grove.  We have the lovely Yvonne demoing various products for us at 11.00am to 12.30pm and then again at 1.30pm to 3pm.  There will also be lots of BARGAINS to be had, pop along and grab yourself some before they go!

Also, if you have bought a crafting product and you need a bit of help getting the most out of it, why not bring it along and Yvonne will do her best to show you how to use it and you may even learn a few different techniques along the way.

Emma will also be supplying some drinks and nibbles for you too so pop along and have yourself some crafting fun!

Join us on our Free Demo Day at Stampers Grove on Saturday 17th September

Hi All

As the Ross Papercraft show next week has been cancelled we have decided to run a little event of our own at Stampers Grove next Saturday (17th September)

So what is happening?

Firstly, the shop will be open as normal from 10 til 4pm. We will be offering various deals on the day (in line with what we may have done if you we were at the Ross Papercraft show).

In addition, Yvonne will be demoing various products throughout the day.  So a great opportunity to get those creative juices flowing and pick up some invaluable tips from Yvonne’s vast wealth of experience.

Yvonne will be around from 11am to 12.30 (Slot 1) and then 1.30pm to 3pm (Slot 2).  Nibbles and Refreshments will be available too.

Perhaps you have bought a crafting product and you need a bit of help getting the most out of it. Why not bring it along and Yvonne will do her best to show you how to use it and you may even learn a few different techniques along the way.

The practical bit…..

As most of you will know, our shop it not huge and in order for people to get the most out it and try and be fair to everyone, it will be helpful if you would let us know which time slot (for the demo) you would like to attend (if you are planning on coming along).  i.e. Slot 1 (11am to 12.30pm) or slot 2 (1.30pm to 3pm) also if you have a product that you are planning on bringing with you if you could provide details.

Hope to see you on the 17th (if not before)!  Have a great weekend!

James and Emma

Claybord or ‘Big Stampbord’ available at Stampers Grove

Claybord-Museum-Series-Ampersand-6-by-6Claybord or if you prefer ‘big Stampbord’ now available from Stampers Grove

Stampbord (by Ampersand) in larger sizes is branded as Claybord.

Yes it’s the same thing!

Ampersand the manufacturers have confirmed this to me today! I was keen not to misrepresent the product so I wanted this in writing.

So if you love working with Stampbord and I know many of you do and if you want to work on a bigger surface, Claybord is the answer!

So just as Stampbord is a great mixed media panel so is Claybord! We have these now available in 2 (square) sizes in packs of 4. The 4 inch by 4 inch at £7.50 and the 6 inch by 6 inch at £9.99

So just like Stampbord, the larger Claybord is archival and acid-free. It is created by applying Ampersand’s patented, archival kaolin clay ground to a True Artist Hardbord substrate, then sanding it to a ultra-smooth, absorbent finish.

Claybord is ideal for ink, watercolor, alcohol inks, acrylic, collage, photo-transfer, pencil, and pen. Perfect for thinly applying and removing colors. You can even scratch through it to add contrast, texture, and fine details.

Made from sustainable forest products that ensure the protection of wildlife, plants, soil, and water, Claybord is formaldehyde-free and contains no harmful volatile organic compounds.

To see our full selection of Stampbord products and Claybord click here.

Workshops, New stuff and Award

Hi all

We hope you are all well and for those of you that are local to us, are staying safe with all these high winds we have been having.

Just a quick(ish) post to let you know of a few things.

 1. We still have spaces on this Saturdays (6 Feb) Valentine Shaker Cards workshop (11am to 1pm). A link to Sarah’s blog is shown below to see what you will be up to (and chance to follow her blog if you don’t already).

Note the cards can easily be adapted for non Valentines occasions for those that prefer to.

Call us on 0131 221 9440 if you would like to book a place. The cost is only £12.

2. For our other workshops, including:
a jam packed Easter workshop (with Sarah);
a workshop creating scenes using the Hobby Art Stamps (with Yvonne)
and an Introduction to card making workshop (with Emma).
See link – http://www.stampersgrove.co.uk/workshops.html

3. On last Saturdays class we ran out of the new (and proving very popular) Starlights Metallic Paint. We are pleased to say we have decided to order the whole range for our shop, and believe it or not they have just arrived while I have been writing this  🙂 We aim to put these on the website in the next few days too.

Talking about the website, it’s PaperArtsy week again and all their new products have just been added to our website: www.stampersgrove.co.uk . So for all you fans of the fantastic PaperArtsy rubber stamps take a look if you haven’t already or better still pop into the shop if you can. PaperArtsy are doing some live broadcasts introducing their new and existing designers and of course their new stamps and giving you lots of inspiration along the way. You will find these on their blog, with new videos every day this week.

http://blog.paperartsy.co.uk/

Lots more new stuff is coming in to Stampers Grove over the next few weeks. We will be putting as much as possible onto our website, but of course you can come and see it in our shop.

 

4. New Craft Stamper Magazine and New Hunkydory magazine are in. Come along and get your copy.

5. Last, but certainly not least……

 

We have just been advised that we have been awarded the Silver Award in the International Craft Awards in the category “Best Independent Store for Scotland”. This is the first time we have achieved this. Obviously we are delighted. We will be collecting the plaque/certificate in Birmingham later in the month. Thanks for those that voted for us – we hugely appreciate it!!

 

Anyway, must dash. Enjoy the rest of your week and hope to see you on Saturday’s workshop if you can make it.

Many Thanks

 

James and Emma Dennison
