FRIDAY UPDATE



You may have noticed that the window is looking a little bare as the papers have been moved to elsewhere in the shop. We haven,t run out of them yet. A table has been put in the window groaning with bargain priced cards. So hurry in and grab a deal and don,t miss out.

BENDY CARD



Sharon made this bendy card from a 12x12 card piece. She has used a Kaiser embellish pack to create interest and quite a few word pieces. As you can see the top fold is slotted into the 2nd fold which in turn folds into a slit in the back panel.

CELEBRATION BOX CARD


It is a bit hard to see in this photo, but there is a congratulations greeting on the back panel peeking through the flowers. The decorations are from a sparklelight  3d sheet and the flowers are suspended on strips of acetate. Again, hard to see but the theme is in green and white which gives it a fresh and delicate look. For those of you not familiar with box cards there are plenty of web sites with instructions on how to make them. They look a lot harder than they are to make.  The box squashes  up to fit into an envelope the same as a normal card.

WEEKLY UPDATE



These are some more lovely cards sent to the boss and staff thanking us for service over the years. It has been our pleasure to help you out with your questions and offer suggestions and solutions. We have met some wonderful people and made some fine friends.
Still no set date for closing yet.
 Still plenty of bargains to be had.

Yes we are still here but stocks are dwindling fast so don't delay. There are sheets of a4 paper and card mostly in colours not so much the whites. Still a fair heap of printed scrapbook papers.
Don't forget there is 30% off everything in the shop.
If you would be interested in shop fittings, racks etc. put your name down and these can be put aside for you. It is all for sale.

POSTCARD NO.3



A very nautical take on this postcard. Of course to look at it you would just think it is a plain card and a great one for men, but no. This is a postcard which if you turned it over you would see that the reverse is printed ready for you to post off to the lucky recipient. See postcard image no. 1.
This card has utilised dies twine and some adhesive pearls to add interest.

WEEKLY UPDATE


For those people waiting on the little calendars they are back in stock but be quick as we didn't do a huge amount.
Keep checking in on the specials as a lot of the stock that would normally have been put aside to go into the giant sale is slowly being put into the shop as a consequence the stock is constantly being changed.
Some of the shop fitting are for sale also so if you are looking for some shelves etc. there might be something in the store for you. Don't like the price of these then make us an offer.

POSTCARD NO. 2



This postcard is one of mine. Iv'e made it a bit more generic than the others so can be used for any destination. If you added thing like wild animals it could be an African safari as the map is of this area.
Bear in mid that postcards are generally sent without an envelope so they need to be flat and not have bits that can catch on the automatic machines the post office use.

CREATIVE POSTCARD NO.1


The monthly challenge the Regal staff had for the face book page is no longer shown on that site so you get first look.

Making your own postcards can be fun and can lead to some fine art samples such as this one shown.

I believe this one is done by Sharon and looks very Parisian or certainly European. As you can see this picture also includes an image of the pre-printed reverse of the card. All you need to do is fill in the name and address and send off to some lucky person.
In the coming weeks there will be a couple of more samples to inspire you to make your own postcards.

CARDS FROM OUR LOVELY CUSTOMERS



These are a few of the cards some of our lovely customers have sent to the boss and the team to say thankyou. I'm pretty impressed.

WEEKLY UPDATE


My goodness, what a week!! Since the announcement that Regal Craft Cards is closing, the place has erupted and stock is flying off the shelves, particularly cards. If  you need to stock up on cards we suggest you don't leave it too long. Many designs have already gone. Bear in mind these cards at Regal are manufactured by Regal Press and not available elsewhere. 30% off all stock while it lasts.

FLOWER POT HEXAGINAL
















Tania has used bright colours here to make an eye popping impact of this flower pot card.  By highlighting the hexaginal shapes with black it creates a very striking card.
Many people do not decorate the inside of the card but Tania has spent time to make the inside front cover as attractive as the rest of the card.
By using pearl blobs to match the papers she has created a bit of depth to this card.
The card is a pre- made flower pot shaped card from Regal Craft Cards.

WEEKLY UPDATE

Hello crafter's  another  week has disappeared and we are one week closer to closure. No we don't know when that will be but depend on weeks rather that months.  When we are gone we are gone. I suggest if you want to restock especially with those more popular items, you do not delay. Don't forget there is 30% off everything in the shop including those items already marked down.
There are still a few outstanding gift vouchers so if you own one or have given one to someone, pop in and use it very soon or miss out.
A number of the cards we have made to display are also available for purchase so if there is an idea you especially were impressed with now is the time to grab some.

FLOWER POT LOTS AND LOTS


Janet's philosophy is "too many flowers are never enough". This is one of Regal Craft's standard pre- cutout cards and instead of having it so that the card opens as per usual Janet has put  a band around the whole card to create a stand and holds it all together. Using a set of flower dies and adding a bit of bling to the centres  to finish off.
 This card is pretty impressive.

MERMAID AT SEA



 This card is a limited edition turquise single fold available at Regal Craft cards. The background sheet is navy blue and the I have chosen a couple of sea inspired papers to compliment the mermaid which is a 3d sheet. The embellishments are from a Kaiser pad and the greeting is mounted on double sided tape then a piece of string added underneath just to add a different texture and interest.
This card would be ideal for a young girl.
I love mermaids and think there should be more of them.

WEEKLY UPDATE


Hi fellow bloggers and card makers all. This week the display board in the shop has been updated and for those people who consider themselves challenged  with  ideas for cards for the male gender, that is all I put on the board. So pop in and get inspired.
Don't forget the card of the month is the flower pot card which is pre-cut out and only needs to be decorated. Samples are in the shop and will be appearing in the near future on this blog. What  you can come up with is only limited by your imagination and you should see the ideas that the girls have come up with....they are amazing.
A number of people have been into the shop expressing problems they are having with their die  cutting machines and we have been able to help them out. Don't forget we are here to help so don't be shy in coming forward! Just ask and we will help you all we can!

WEDDING STEP CARD



Another step card idea!  You can tell they are a favourite as they always look like you are extremely clever and of course the card is already made for you so all you have to do is to  decorate it.
In this case the theme is wedding (just in case you needed this explanation!) and grey and olive green has been used to pick up the colours in the decorations. The darker grey colour helps to make it pop and with it recessed in the back, also gives the card some depth. The dots across the front of the card comes from a length of ribbon.

WEDDING TURRETS



What a fabulous card Sharon has made using the Kaiser " Two Souls" papers. She has used an A4 piece of card to make the foundation then used the collectables set to decorate. Of course you could decorate with die cuts or stickers or whatever you like. It's a bit hard to see in the photo but the card has a bridge band across the front  and there is a cavity between the front and back of the card . The bridge has been used to place the greeting on. The pale mint green sets off the the papers beautifully and is a very delicate look. Great for a wedding or perhaps a lady.
This particular card design can be made in a smaller version using the three panel card and just fold back the sides.

WEEKLY UPDATE


You lucky people! Regal Craft have three new sets of papers in the shop this week. A lovely set  of papers for men from Couture Creations, and two sets of papers from Kaiser all of which are 12x12 in size. One of these sets is gold foiled with pretty flowers and butterflies called the "With love collection" and the other is the "Antiquities collection" in mustard and blues. Something a bit different!

In the shop for a limited time are some plastic peel and seal bags size 180 x 140mm which have a slight dingle on one side. They are perfectly fine to use and seal well and are very popular for using with our photo slotted cards. These are being sold for half the normal price and are only available until sold out so rush in and don't miss out!

TRAVEL CARD



Been on a trip or know someone who is going and need to make a card? What better example than this one Sharon has made.
The photo /slide lines are cut from a strip of printed acetate and a number of travel stickers we have in store have been placed under the acetate. It's finished off with the camera sticker. You could use stamps or die cut to achieve the same style card

BUTTONS BIRTHDAY CARD



Buttons, buttons and buttons, what useful little items they are to add interest to your card. Regal Craft Shop has quite a few in store and as you can see by Tanias card can make a good generic birthday card. This card is bright and cheery and would be great for a teenager or a young man perhaps. Tania has used the Regal three window cutout card and just chosen a complimentary variety of papers to add some life and interest. The sticker has been coloured using a permanent pen. Easy and quick.

ROSES AND LACE
















As the easel/tilt card was a monthly challenge so there are a number of these on offer. This special card is Sharon's offering. This would make a great Mothers Day card or birthday. Lace trim and and a burgundy bow and a couple of Kaiser baby blue adhesive pearls set off the rear panel .Large pearls are used to stop the card from coming forward

TROPICAL THREE WINDOW



Using the Paradise Found paper from the Kaiser collection I' put some leaves in and some outside the apertures to give a bit of depth. A couple of squares of cardboard covered with complimentary paper and the round dots on top have  dimensional magic on to make them look like tiles.

DUTCH FOLD CHRISTMAS CARD



Roma  created this striking card which looks a bit like a house. The bottom panel is a gate fold. The top is added on later and it all folds flat when finished.
The decoration on the top is multiple layers of die cut thistle type flowers.
The card is called a Dutch fold.
