The countdown is over!...
I really hope you have all enjoyed the countdown and all the rumours I have to say I have! The day is here so it's time to share my new Direction. As of Today I am launching my own brand and ranges under the title of John Next Door! The range is in collaboration with Crafts Too which is a fantastic Family Owned Craft brand and Distributor. Their range covers all areas of the Craft world from Dies and stamps to Tools paper and everything any crafter ( like me) would drool over.
The Brand - The John Next Door brand is designed by me and will encompass all areas of the crafting world in fact the tag line is For The Makers. I know that a lot of my Blog Family, like me, move between crafts and love trying something new. This moves us from being paper crafters to more of makers with fabric, home decor baking and all aspects of the hand made world being things we love and do. Therefore the brand will have new ranges every month based on existing and new areas of Craft.
The first range will launch on Hochanda TV on Tuesday 18th July ( next Tuesday) at 10am with a further show at 2pm I do hope you can tune in to see the launch and hopefully learn some new ideas and techniques designed to take our skill levels somewhere new!
Some of the range will be available on the Art of Craft stand today and tomorrow at Crafting Live in Doncaster so those going will be able to see the range in use first. failing that the Full range will launch on Tuesday on Hochanda!
Over the next few months I have Embossing folders, fabric crafts with Stencils, Dies, stamps and so much more ready to go! We have also been working with a company in France to deliver a fantastic range of Inks, paints, pastes and other products which have amazing attributes and are fantastic value ( always important to me)
I hope you will all enjoy this new direction for my Crafting Journey and love the John Next Door brand as much as I do! To get you stared here is the first New youtube video featuring how to use the Media Plates that everyone has been asking about!
Over the next few days I will post sample pictures ( and there are youtube videos showing the techniques) However there are a few above and Mrs Duck has been playing with the stamps and is showing some ion her Blog click HERE to see what she has come up with!
