Oh So Many Crafts will have a trade site at SENZ 2014

As some of you will know I run Oh So Many Crafts which sells Cricut and we teach Cricut Interactive Education Weekends. This year we are going to be at SENZ 2014. You can buy your ticket from SENZ  and you can let me know by clicking here to email Flo if you would like to book into any of the Cricut classes
Hi everyone We are going to be at SENZ 2014 having a site for you to see all things Cricut and we are having classes.
If you would like to book into our classes let me know as soon as possible. There are limited places in each class.


Oh So Many Crafts received many requests to do Cricut classes at SENZ 2014. We have 5 classes listed below. When you first get a Cricut there is a learning curve to operate this machine. In Cricut Interactive Education Weekends done over the last 16 months, we have consistently found the information we give in our basics class was not known so this class will be available to all Cricut machines.
To give participants the best learning environment we will be limiting the class sizes to 10 people with machines.

*** Class 1 Cricut Basics 1, Class 4 TBBM2 and Class 5 Vinyl may be done with a Cricut Expression v1 machine however I need to know you have this machine and you must bring it.

New products for Close to my Heart

 Clear pillow boxes come 3 to a packet. Z1840 here I have embossed the box in a heart embossing folder then used re-inker and "Create a shade pearl" to paint some of the hearts. its not finished yet but thought I would take a pic of it anyway.
 I love watching the Tui's outside my Craft Studio and this bird from 'Believe in Yourself" C1574 is so like the Tui so I painted her with the lagoon re-inker (Z2295)and the create a shade pearl (Z1039) She is showing way to light so may end up putting more black onto her, but she looks like the sun is shining on her.
 John Keys ea your heart out- my NZ flag haha. I stamped this with the Silver fern from the New Zealand stamp set and heat embossed it with silver. loving the treat tubes I made the treat tube box embossed this with a folder and addedthe NZ sentiment stamped with white daisy ink (Z2163)
 The treat tubes come in a packet of 6 (Z1823) they are so cute.
 The Stamp of the month is yours for $5 if you purchase $75 worth of product from the catalogue and this month if you purchase any 2 paper packs from page 139 of the catalogue ($26.50 each) you get an embossing folder from page 130 free, (normally $14.50). Now you are well on your way to getting the stamp of the month just buy the NZ stamp set (D1601)
 Stamped onto muslin bags -NZ stamp set 'New Zealand Greetings' $29.00
 Buggy Love (B1441) $17.00
