wow have we got a great challenge prize for you this week . thanks to this weeks generous sponser. Clever Cut.

 This weeks challenge is Clearly Clever . You can use anything that you can see through, You can use the title , You can use any technique you think is clearly clever as long as you tell us how to achieve it . You can do something about about someone or something that is clearly clever . Whatever the title says to you , The prize reflects the challenge and Clever Cut has kindly donated design samples and this amazing prize Of Acrylic items. As acrylic dosn’t photograph well we have shown them in graphic form. 


What an amazingly great prize, I think you will agree. So thanks again to our sponsor

A bit about Clever cut

CleverCut started when we put our first selection of Professional Craft Packs on sale through Ebay, and at that time our product list consisted of approx 10 different christmas packs. Within a couple of months our pack range had grown to over 48 packs. Now many months on our die cut packs are a small part of the product range we offer. We are now dealers for many different craft suppliers, as well importers for a wide range of products.

But we know that sometimes bringing value to the market place means manufacturing or importying exlusive ranges, which is exactly what we have done with Stamps Away, foiled again! and the Above Board range of products.

Since starting our business has grown from a part time venture to a full time family business. In April 2005 we moved the business to larger premises on a business park in the Leicestershire countryside. We are proud to announce that our new retail shop is now open at East Calton Country Side Park. A selection of all the products we stock are to be found there as well as a great day out for the whole family.

 Anyway here are the design teams examples for this week.  The Owl, little bird  and the happy birthday stamp are all Clever Cuts  Stamps Away Stamps arn’t they cute. Plus all the tags arrows and buttons are Clever cut as well. Which you can see in their online shop  as well as at the new retail shop.

    This is a difficult challenge: I have to be immodest to submit one of my own ideas 😉

    Anyhow I do it: Take a look at my Lacy Crochet Scarves From Edgings.
    Beach at called it ‘brilliant’ ;-), that’s why I dare to call my own idea clever 😉

    Have fun!
