Wear Crafts Scrapbook Kit - Twelve Pledges For 2014 'Be Ready To Seize The Day'

To Buy, or Not To Buy... That is the Question...

So I want your opinions.... I have some questions over on our FB page as well as here, if you want to leave me a comment. Thing is, I know what I like, but I need to know if you like it too! 

Now you all know I am a Wear Crafts D Ring Girl... I don't really 'do' post bound, so I don't stock many of those (only when requested and there are a few available at the Creative Space)... I think that D Rings are the dearer option, but they are also the more robust option... if you go for the quality option. Too many options in that sentence...
I 'road test' all my D Rings before I stock them... so here is my recipe for stocking:
* they have to tolerate my drop test (literally, I fill it with my pages and drop it on the floor so it lands on its corners and edges... I don't want bumped corners and I look for metal protectors on the corners)
* they have to tolerate the cram test (again, full to bursting, I squeeze it closed and squash it in my mimi... when I take it out, the D Ring inside must not be open)
* they have to come with page protectors to get you started
* they have to be compatible with as many brands of page protectors as possible)
* they have to have a smooth lock system so the page protectors don't snag when you turn
* the D Ring mechanism has to be secure and tight, but easy to open and close
So, I have We R Memory Keepers already and I have Sn@p too (they all passed my tests and I therefore kept one of each for (ahem) 'research purposes').
I know these are going to be good quality as they are We R Memory Keepers... I know they will be gorgeous because it is Teresa Collins Designs.... but gold? I would say 'yes please' and release the inner bling, but what do you reckon... leave a comment and let me know! If you want them, we will get them! Happy scrapping, jenx

Wear Crafts Craft n Chat Crop - May 23rd, 2014

Wear Crafts Craft n Chat Crop - May 23rd, 2014

What a lovely night again... with more crafting completed in one certain quarter! Welcomed back two of our lovely crafters who haven't been able to join us for a while. Everyone seems to like the space... someone said 'it is like crafting altogether with friends in your own home'. Perfect! Exactly what how I want people to feel. We have a full programme now, so make sure you check out our timetable. It is always best to give me a call or send me a message to make sure we have space... but if you just want to pop along on the off-chance, that is fine too! You know how we are at Wear Crafts... friendly and flexible... enjoy the photographs and happy scrapping, jx

Wear crafts Craft n Chat Crop - 16.4.14

Wear crafts Craft n Chat Crop - 16.4.14

Grand night as always! Everyone seemed happy with the new space... although there was far too much hilarity and not enough crafting from a certain corner (yes, Catherine, I am talking about you ;) ) . Overwhelmed by the flowers and the wine from Susan. And everyone had nothing but good wishes and positivity. We are a grand wee group and I love what I do. Happy scrapping, jenx
