Sarah Hurley's World of Imagination Shortlisted in Prestigious Toy Awards!





More exciting news to share with you all today, I'm over the moon to tell you that my World of Imagination Make Believe Shop Playset has been shortlisted for a Slow Craft Toy Award! These are very prestigious awards, backed by John Lewis, supporting traditional toys and engaging play rather than computer games and flashing lights (though those are fun too!)
When I was developing the range I looked for a way to involve craft, learning and good old fashioned fun in one cute case and hopefully I achieved it! Now it's up to a panel of 6 prestigious judges including top parenting bloggers, authors and representatives of John Lewis and The Guardian to decide the winner, we'll be waiting on the edge of our seats at Hurley HQ!

if you're a blogger, journalist or writer and would like a copy of our press release please email us here and we'll send it straight over

*NEW!* Sarah Hurley Bakeware




Today we're launching a whole range of new products - so exciting! When Lisa first started working here she suggested we launch a bakeware range - I wasn't sure, I'm not a super duper baker and I like everything put together for me so it's super easy. Luckily thats exactly what she had in mind!
Lisa has since spent all of her free time baking, cutting and icing cookies to put together this fabulous range of cookie kits and accessories especially for the Sarah Hurley Bakeware range! (big thank you to Lisa for all the hard work and congratulations on our first collaboration, whoop! choccy cake all round - if we hadn't eaten it already, lol)

Each kit contains everything you need to get started (except ingredients!) with a cutter, icing bottles, instructions, recipes and hints and tips, they are perfect for adults and children (or to do together!)

You can check out the whole range here on my website or here on notonthehighstreet.com

We'd love to know what you think of the new range!

Pimp My Filofax Blogger Challenge





A couple of weeks ago I had an email from Filofax asking if I would like to take part in their Blogger Challenge #pimpmyfilofax - of course I said YES!
Just a couple of days later a lovely big parcel plopped through my door...
and I opened it to find this...
I must admit, my first thought, after 'eeeeeeeeeeeek!' was 'oh, it's purple...' as you've probably guessed from my projects and blog, I have quite a particular colour scheme, white, teal, pink, grey, hints of yellow and lots and lots and LOTS of gold. So I started thinking... could I...? dare I...? and so of course, I did! out came the gold spray paint and just a few hours - and lots of masking tape - later (I had to do it in sections...) my beautiful filofax was GOLD!
Once that was all taken care of it was time to prepare a page to use for my challenge entry, I got busy with craft supplies and wash tape, including some journaling cards form this months 'A Few of My Favourite Things...' kit to create my page for the week ahead...
 Here are a couple of close ups...
 
You can check out all of the #pimpmyfilofax Challenge entries and vote for your favourite (by liking it) right here on Facebook.

I'd love to see what you've done with your planners and Fliofaxes - if you'd like to share, please leave me your links!

Creating Ink Sprays and Art Journaling for Derwent





Today I wanted to give you a closer look at the Art Journal page I created for Derwent recently...
My post was about creating your own Ink Sprays, which I done using Inktense blocks (love them!) and water - you can see the full tutorial over on the Derwent Blog here! I used my sprays to create the background for my page...
I then used a triangle mask and some texture paste paint to create the triangles and added a Doodle Doll stamped image, coloured with Inktense pencils, and some Dymo label text to spell out my words (which I doodled all around!)

Finally, I added a die cut chipboard heart (which I had torn in half) added some texture paste and the last piece of text, and again, doodled over the top...
I don't often share my art journaling so I do hope you like it!

Loom Band Kit & Book Giveaway!





Today I'm sharing something super exciting, a giveaway! We recently launched a few Loom Band kits including our best selling Loom Band Starter Kit...
We have sold out of these twice and they are flying off the shelves along with the smaller kits! These kits are all available here on my website as part of the fantastic World of Imagination range.

Also, recently at the One Big Show I met some lovely people from Search Press who told me all about their fantastic new book on Loom Band Jewellery - great timing as it was just days before our Loom Band kits launched! So very kindly they sent us a copy so we (or more correctly, Lisa...) could learn how to make Loom Band Jewellery for our product pictures. Like this one...
The book was absolutely great, so helpful, and Search Press said to us that if we wanted to, we could have another copy for a giveaway - woohoo! (This book is so popular it's actually completely sold out at the moment and only available as a download here for another couple of weeks while they await new stock!)
So today we are giving you the chance to win a starter kit and book! All you need to do is leave us a comment below. You can also pop over to mine and Search Press's Facebook Pages to give us a like and a comment there if you would like (let them know I sent you over!) - and each one will be counted as an entry. You have until 8th August to enter - we will draw a winner in the 5 days after and announce it here on my blog and on Facebook.

Good luck everyone! and please do share your Loom Band creations over on the World of Imagination Facebook page - we'd really love to see!!
