The Toreads are here!!!! Crafter’s Companion Hop

Welcome to the Crafter's Companion blog hop to celebrate the launch of the Toread papercrafting range! You could win the new Toread CD-ROM, simply by hopping around the Design Team's blogs and being inspired! Pop over to the Crafter's Companion News blog for the full list of Design Team members who are taking part.

The Design team have loved crafting with the new range but I think I have loved it the most lol. I remember having decoupage of these cuties when I first started crafting.I am so excited that they are now stamps. They are perfect for all ages and there are some fab images for those difficult to make male card!. So we're celebrating the launch of this gorgeous new collection on Friday 28th September by giving you a chance to see some sneak peeks and have the chance to win a great prize!

All you need to do to be in with a chance of winning is visit each of the Design Team members blogs. They will each be showing you some of their fabulous Toread creations. Once you've been inspired, simply head back over to the Crafter's Companion News blog and leave a comment on their blog hop post, saying which is your favourite Toread character and why.

One winner will be drawn at random after 10am on Friday 28th September, and will be notified by email.

You should have arrived from Elaine’s blog.

Now I would like you to meet XERU …. a very cheeky looking chap I think you would agree!


I have stamped this onto Neenah card and coloured with my Spectrum Noir pens. I will do a tutorial soon how to create a leafy/camouflage look for those who are interested.


I have used the papers from the CD-Rom and added some netting and a button (tied with twine). The sentiment was created using the verse writer from the CD too –how useful is that!


Your next stop should be with Rachel so hop on over for more inspiration

I should hopefully be fast asleep now, had a very hectic night last night at work in – remember that if you love someone please tell tell them ….. x
