Ribbon Union Jack Peek

A simple yet effective use of ribbon pieces is to create a decorative section to fit within an aperture of a card or tag, and what better than a Union Jack sample for our special crop day...

May Arts Ribbon
May Arts Ribbon are renowned for their great quality & fabulously diverse range of ribbons that are often featured in ScrapaGoGo's kits.

A Bit Of A Do!

We just LOVE the ideas that HobbyCraft are sharing at the moment, will this inspire you to get all 'regal' and take part in our pre crop challenge?

So here is what to do:

We thought it would be fun to be a princess or queen for the day so simply create a royal headpiece of either a crown, tiara or something that takes your fancy - where it along on the day to receive a raffle ticket and chance to win a cool prize!

Dear Create & Co Croppers

It was lovely to see everyone last week for our March Crop and no soon had we finished we were busy planning the next! April Crop will take place as advertised on Saturday 30th April - normal place and times!

We do however have a few special treats for you all in the way of a Create & Co Street Party, this will involve some traditonal British fun and edible treats too We thought with the trends of Union Jack Flags and all things Royal for the wedding of the year it would be a great opportunity to celebrate all things British at the same time as having some scrapping fun whilst raising a cuppa to our first anniversary as Create & Co!

May Arts has sponsored our April Crop and Eileen will be designing a great class for you all with something just that little bit different. So we can make sure all our party supplies are in hand it would be great if you could reply ASAP to this email to let us know if you are able to make it along or not on the day.

Keep an eye on the Blog too for peeks and more ideas of what to expect on the day!
