card designed by Georgina
Hi all!

Just thought we would share this truly amazing card with you! It features a selection of our Christmas stamps.

We all think it's such a great idea - thanks Georgina.

We will be closed from Monday 20 December and will re-open on Tuesday 4 January with a busy schedule ahead of us; our first 3 shows of the year begin in Hinckley on Sunday 16 January, followed by Sunderland on Sunday 23 January then Exeter 27-29 January.

Steve will also be appearing on Create and Craft on Wednesday 12th January 11am where he will be attempting to make cards on live tv! We will also be bringing you blog challenges from February so watch this space!

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all our lovely customers and our fabulous design team for their hard work and inspiration and to wish you all a very happy Christmas and New Year!

With love from the Little Claire team xxx

It's been snowing!!

Yes, we've had a bit of snow today although only a sprinkling! It's a scary reminder that December is nearly upon us! If you're after inspiration for your Christmas cards, just look at these fabulous cards designed by Gaynor, one of our design team...

Warmest Wishes
Christmas Pals

Deck The Horns
We Three Cats


Gaynor made all these cards using papers that were free from a craft magazine last year, a selction of our fab Christmas stamps and Martha Stewart punches. She added a little card candy and a touch of glitter glue here and there for added sparkle!  Thanks Gaynor xx

Cards to brighten your day!

Just look at these beautifully co-ordinated cards in blues and greens made with our latest Club stamp, 'A Little Bird Told Me'...

Thanks for these cards, Gaynor.
We just love the way you can use this stamp to make  birthday cards and general cards aswell as Christmas cards, just by changing the colour schemes!  Let us know what you think!

This cute little card featuring 'Claire's Owls' is simply held together by a brad - what a clever idea Heidi!

We just love this little tag (which could also be hung on a Christmas tree) using part of the image of  'A little bird told me..'  and our Flower Frames die.
Thanks for this great idea Heidi!

New designs going on Create and Crafts in January.

Steve has his own themed collection launching on the 13th January 2011 on Ideal Worlds Create and Crafts TV at 10 am and repeated at 10pm with Leonie, poor thing and 5 demo's which should be fun and I think they are repeating the show two weeks later, we are then on in Feb with another 4 of Steve's collection but will update you all with a time as we get it.

The club is over 1100 strong now and growing and thanks to everyone for supporting us, if you look on the front page each month you will see the new sets and stamps and we have some fantastic designs for everyone in 2011 with the talented design team and ourselves who will be working hard to show them all to there full potential in loads of ideas for everyone.

Lots of emails everyone please for the show and the club members are in for a treat in January as the very first of my collection is being posted to them as an exclusive set before the tv show get a look.

If you get a chance have a look as they really are beautiful designs I hate to admit and peeloffs to match as well, I am sure it will all go to his head even more so put your ear plugs in at the shows in 2011, but we all admit they are very clever and quite original!

ps we are starting to do challenges after Christmas so make sure you are on our followers list to get the information fast as a lot of goodies will be up for grabs.
