We catch up with Julie, owner of Julie Hickey Designs as she talks about how it feels to be launching her first ever One Day Special and their new collection,
“We are absolutely thrilled to be launching our first ever One Day Special on The Craft Store on Wednesday 27th October and Thursday 28th October with our amazing collection under the Julie Hickey Designs Designer Series, Designed by… Hazel Eaton!
Hazel has designed this complete collection exclusively for us comprising:
3x A5 stamp sets – All about the Girls, All about the Boys, Sentiment Circles
2x A5 stencil & mask sets – Fern Foliage and You’re a star!
8×8 double sided paper pack – All Weathered Paper Pack
2x packs of Glossies Dots – Earth Tones and Tutti Fruitti
With such a versatile collection, perfect for both male and female recipients, you will easily create amazing cards, scrapbook layouts, home decor or mixed media projects.
There is a real sense of Family in Hazel’s All about the Girls and All about the Boys Stamp sets. With 28 female and 25 male family sentiments simply mix and match to create your own personalised messages, such as “To our beautiful Daughter” or To our wonderful Son”. Team them with the design elements in each stamp set from ferns to stars, dictionary definitions to text, inky splats to rings and cross hatching designs and you will be filled with inspiration.
Her Sentiment Circles fit the centre of the large stamps in each of her All about the Girls/Boys stamp sets, or they work beautifully on their own. Sentiments include: Happy Birthday, With Love, Just for You, Happy Christmas, You are a star! and On your special day. With 11 additional stamps perfect to create backgrounds or fill in those little gaps. These three A5 stamp designs work perfectly together and they co-ordinate with our Layers, Frames & Banner Circle Dies too. All 3 stamp sets are manufactured in the UK.
Hazel lovingly created our first ever paper pad, 8×8 in size, double sided with 36 sheets in total, 2 of each design all acid and lignin free. Hand inked, blended and spritzed to create fabulous backgrounds in her unique signature style. There are 4 designs, which come in 9 different colour ways, something for both male and female creations. These wonderful papers were printed in the UK.
There are 2 amazing Stencil & Mask sets in Hazel’s collection too. These both co-ordinate beautifully with the stamp sets and paper pack featuring designs from both. Fern Foliage comes with 5 designs on the stencil: Ferns, irregular lines, splats and inky rings and 2 Masks. You’re a star! has 10 designs on the stencil: different sized: open stars, stars with patterns, clusters of stars, Birthday text and 11 Masks. Giving both the stencil & mask gives so much more flexibility and versatility to the designs and techniques that can be achieved. Our stencils & masks have been lovingly cut in the UK.
Finally, we have 2 new Glossies Dots in Earth Tones, which work perfectly with the male elements of the collection and Tutti Fruitti, which work with the female elements. Glossies are the perfect enamelled and dimensional finishing touch to your project.
We can’t wait to see Hazel demonstrate her amazing range of products, she has so many incredible techniques to share with you all and just wait till you see all the inspiration from our super talented Design Team! You can find all the inspiration on our Pinterest Boards – pinterest.com/juliehickeydesigns.
