This is the first of our featured blog spot cards by other artists. Jakki is a prolific artist and creates beautiful cards and we will be featuring her artwork from time to time. She has used the brand new and exclusive to ImaginationCrafts 'Inkadinks', which will be on the Web Site later in the week. The inks are available in 3 sets, 4 inks in each set, and the colours are Brights, Lights and Sunset. As alot of you know we sold out of them in Birmingham and they will be back in stock in a few days time. Jakki has coloured in the Sugar Nellie stamp with the inks (so much easier to use then felt tips and other colouring mediums as the colours flow together beautifully), and featured the Hearts and Flowers Roller on the righthand background. I love her use of tone on tone colour and you can see more of her artwork on her blogspot at She will be doing alot more cards featuring the rollers in the next few weeks so look out for some stunning examples coming soon. As those of you who saw our Heather demonstrating the Inks at the Shows, they are incredibly versatile, mixed with our Magi Shimmer Powders, layered with our brand new Magi Chunky Boss embossing powders and already we are bringing out a Metallic Set and a Vintage Set. As ever, we give you step by step instructions and ideas how to use your inks and already Jakki's ladies want more! What more can we say. Happy Crafting Girls!

Hi Everyone
We're back! Glasgow was cold and snowy, Birmingham was hot and sunny - the british weather hey! However, the welcome was equally warm in both cities. We met some incredibly talented people who have said we can feature their cards on our blog, which is so exciting - but more of them and their stunning art work later.
Our beautiful dog (below), Barney, is still not speaking to us because we left him behind! Normally he comes with us to Shows and spends most of the time reclining on his specially made bunk in the back of the van - complete with bed, pillow and paws softy blanket that Sue bought for him - not that he is in the least bit spoilt you understand. Instead he went to stay at 'Animals at Home', with Mike. A wonderful place where a max of 5 dogs stay as the family in the house. He has 3 walks a day and plays in the paddock with the other dogs - so it really is a 'dogs life'! Hope you like his 'Because I'm worth it photo'.
