At last a new post from a very wet and windy Dorset - what happened to all that sunshine? Well - the new garden Studio is up and running and very smart, so at last we will be able to run courses and workshops - for all of you who have been asking. We have just finished filming the new DVD, what an exhausting experience! Heather has worked so hard producing lots of step by step and finished samples and after days of filming we are now busy editing, splicing and cutting - we know how Richard Attenborough feels now! Of course, we got the giggles - big time, you just can't help it seeing yourself on camera is not an easy experience, the bags under the eyes from too much laughing the night before, any crooked teeth, very traumatic - believe me! So, now even more hard work begins to try and get the DVD ready for the Autumn. There are some great projects and it really does answer all the questions everyone always ask us about the Rollagraph. Lots of teachers out there have already pre-ordered a copy, so we know we're doing it right!
Heather has also been really creative and using the new Ollyfant stamps from our Web Site. These cuties have to represent the best value for money around! JUST £5.99 a SET, it really is an unbelievable price. On this set - Autumn Day 2 you get 6 clear stamps. They are fantastic, do take a look. Heather has created this card using the Hearts and Flowers Rollagraph on the background papers, the Flower Patch roller behind the little girl and everything is coloured in using the Inkadinks! - How easy is that! Also don't miss this months edition of Creative Card Making Magazine from your local craft shop or by subscription, as there are three articles in it using the Rollagraph, all produced by us of course!
So there is alot going on behind the scenes at Imagination at the moment, we are working on new techniques and we will keep you posted about new masterclass videos on You Tube, so that you can get the most out of your Inkadinks and your rollers. Michelle is busy working on our new Logo, when she isn't Camping (in this weather - crazy girl!!). Jennifer is working really hard on producing new samples, we have a new designer joining our design team, Karen, more about her later. Heather is really busy on just about everything!! We hope to have some incredible new rubber stamp releases in August from both Michelle and Heather and Harvey is hoping to sccop a BAFTA award for Production!! Sue is busy teaching and spreading the word about our amazing Mica powders, all her students are using them now and loving them - so never a dull moment - keep watching!
