Something New...

Happy Sunday,

Well today's post will show something new today which is also a sneak peak for the Hochanda shows today as I will be premiering this at 8am this morning!

All the samples shown here are made with my Brand New extra large stencils which were specially designed for the new Aladine ( the Izink Range) of texture pastes.  These pastes are in fabulous colours and the best thing is they are designed to work on Fabric, Glass, Wood, Card, in fact anything you can think of.

The brilliant thing about these pastes is that they are fully machine washable and don't need any form of heat setting!  That's the reason Ive made so many cushions.  Above you can see some cushion I made ( yes I even got my sewing machine out) using the large Stag mask ( not chosen because it matches any Living room honest!)

Opposite is the large Zebra which is perfect for hot modern colours as above art for a rainbow of colours as below!

There is also a Christmas set which has 5 masks within the set all included in one packet perfect for your Christmas cards as well as for Christmas bedding and table settings.

I hope you can tune in at 8am this morning to see the range or pop in at 12pm for the launch of my first range of Embossing folders ( with some new hints tips and products to go with them!)

Hochanda is available on freeview channel 85, Sky 663, Freesat 817 or online at


Also brilliant news today Mrs Duck has opened her web shop yesterday just click HERE to see all the goodies she is stocking!

  25. Hi John,
    I am gutted as my you view box didn't record you this morning at 8AM.
    It has been palying up since Talk Talk updated it.
    Managed to record the 12PM show though, as I noticed in time.
    Your cushions are brilliant, and that paste sounds marvellous.
    Lots of crafty regards. Jenny L.

  26. These look fab. Well managed to miss both shows so hoping catch up is working properly.

  27. wow just wow what amazing show on Hochanda, I didnt know what to go for first. Wonderful new things love the embossing folders and the pastes are just wonderful, xx

  28. Hello John,
    I managed to watch the noon Show Live. It was a brilliant Show - so many lovely things and so many great cards, cushions etc on show. You are very talented - as I've said before - and you give great hints and tips! Using the gold pen inside the Die was something that I picked up on.
    I will watch the earlier Show on Catch up later. Had the family here today and a power cut so had fun!
    Love Myra xxx

  29. Hi John
    I thoroughly enjoyed your shows but very disappointed to have missed the texture pastes. I was working so recorded your shows 😔. I had to wait ages before your media plates to come back
    in stock I do hope I dont have to wait so long for the texture paste! 😔

  30. hi John Fabulous cushions wasn't expecting to see them! I've had a busy day today and sadly missed your shows so will have to watch on rewind. I have had my order of your media plates arrive very exciting all I need now is time to try them out!

  31. What a great product I love the idea of being able to use it on fabric as well as other mediums and I love your extra large masks

  32. Awesome, awesome, awesome! I love the pastes and the stencils - watching one of your shows - wonderful! xxx

  33. Brilliant shows John. Love all the new products. I was only saying yesterday to my Granddaughter that we should get some Texture Paste. This looks even better. Must get some. Thanks for all your brilliant ideas and tips. Take carexxx

  34. Hi John

    Great shows, love the embossing folders and now the pastes!
