Happy Birthday Dad....

Hi folks... Just taking a brief hiatus from Christmas samples to get some Birthday cards finished....
For those of you who have been following us for some time now, you will know that September is Birthday Month che Pinnacles... We've had the Shops 11th Birthday. And today, it is my Dad's turn...

I know it's difficult to do "guyz cards", it's just as difficult for me too, believe me.. I seem to end up doing a play on the same theme each year!! And to be honest, this year is no different!!!

However, I have tried to mix it up just a little bit this year by way of some metallic flowers.

Flowers on a guyz card! I know, controversial, but they are Steampunk flowers and I think they kinda work?!!

And considering they took me nearly 6 hrs on and off to colour in, they're just ganna have to work!

So, that's one done, another family birthday is just around the corner...

Thanks for checking us out.
See you soon.
Andy.

Happy Birthday... to us!...

Hi everyone.. 11 years ago today we (Pinnacles) first opened our doors to our little shop here at Barleylands.. Over the years we have grown and learnt so much, riding the wave of the "crafting explosion" along with many of you.. We hope we have played our part in your crafting journey and look forward to sharing lots more inspiration with you in the future...

To celebrate this milestone; we have a DOUBLE DISCOUNT (usual exceptions apply) weekend in store for all of our Pinnacle Crafts Club Members. Saturday 6th September 10am - 5pm & Sunday 7th September 10am - 4pm... We hope you are able to join us...
Happy 11th Birthday to us....

Christmas Greetings Wreath.

Hi folks... A new project today,

somewhat different from my last couple of posts.

However, no less cutting I'm afraid!

12 of the Holly Sprays, 6 in each direction!!

Oh and the sentiment, that make 13 cuts..!

Totally worth it though I hope you'll agree?
Thanks for checking us out.
See you soon.

Snowflake Greetings....

Hi everyone... I'm very much in a "pastelly" (not a word I know) mood at the moment and still unable to settle on a specific thing!
So, I'm just playing around until I come up with something I like or... I run out of time, inspiration or equipment..
So here are today’s offerings..

Not so much Lime, more Mint Green for a change...

Icy Blue,

Pretty in Pink...

Wasn't a fan of the pink on its own, but when it's next to the Green it seems to balance it a bit more?!!

Thanks for checking us out.
See you soon.

Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow...

Morning each... As someone who is always trying to get the most out of their Dies, (let's face it, most of us have quite a few to choose form)

I think I have sort of cracked it with this one...

Taking inspo from another Die

and trying to replicate the idea...

Simple and effective, albeit quite a bit of cutting!!!
Thanks for checking us out. See you soon.
