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.
