The CoolKatz will be at the Gordon Craig Theatre in the Stevenage Arts and Leisure Centre in Lytton Way, Stevenage SG1 1LZ this Sunday the 11th August 2019 from 10-4pm
Maggie and Kay are presently preparing for Stamperama and would love it if you could come and see them and some of their new products both in the picture above and some others which have also really taken off!
There will be Special Show Prices for the Storage with a Twist Range and other bargains too!
CoolKatz has some fabulous new colours and widths in their Architape and you can also see and feel the new Teflon tools, album kits and the CoolKatzCuts the wonderful dies which you can see in some of the sample albums on show.

On Monday I put a posting up on Facebook regarding my favourite page. It was the envelope with pink tulle and it is here along with some other pictures for you to have a look at. I used the Dovecraft Kiss & Makeup papers.
The front and back covers are made from a denim looking paper with a strap to close the album, this uses a hidden magnet. The edges have been made with strips from the same paper which was 12" X 12". I will probably put on it the name of the person who I give it to.
This is page 1, and I have only temporarily put in some photos of me to show you where the die cuts have been placed. This is to show the Small Photo Slot die which is also on the pages behind the top one. The Tab has been made with the Stitched Page Tabs and the Ring Reinforcement dies.
The page has the Small Photo dies used both for the left hand side booklet and straight onto the right handside 'lips' page.
Here you have the Small Photo die on the left and the same die but cut...
We showed you two of Yvonne's pictures of her New 8" X 8" Album on Facebook but here they are along with some more. I have listed the dies which have been used so that you can identify them. These are available separately in the shop at www.coolkatzcraft.com/shop
Should you have any questions please write them below and we will come back to you with an answer.
Yvonne has used the Graphic 45 Times Nouveau papers, including Wallflower, Hey You and the ladies from Glad Rags.
You can see the Ivory Architape close up here on all of the edges. This is included in the kit for this album.
Here Yvonne has used the Mexican die to edge the flaps which open and the flap on the left handside. The Stitched Page Tabs have been used to make the tab to open up the page on the right. The card insert on the left has the border from the Mandarin Whisker set.
These lovely pages in such divine colours use the Hexagon Stitched Page Tabs on the flaps and the Mandarin Whisker...
Hi CoolKatz, I hope that you are enjoying your Easter holidays! I am working on my album for Maggie and Kay because they have a show on Thursday on Hochanda and want to be able to show some finished projects.
My husband just came into my craft room, he said 'How can you get anything done with all this mess?' Mess - that is the way that I craft!
I am hoping that you might be able to see more peaks of the dies but I must wait for Maggie and Kays' say so, so here is another sneak peak of what I am doing at the moment...
This is so exciting! Maggie and Kay have given us a new kit and their new set of dies to make up so that you can see the different ways in which they can all be used. I am sorry not to much to be seen at the moment, but there may be more nearer its completion.
Also here is a Halloween roll-top box which was made by Anita in the design team for children with sweets and spiders and things that go bump in the night! Anita used Graphic 45 Halloween in Wonderland papers to make a spooky album and look at the inside of her box - ughhh I hate spiders!
For some of the new CoolKatz I wanted to show some of the roll-top boxes that have been made by the Design Team, Kay and Maggie. Above you can see mine created for a gardener and designed to be used every year like a calendar. The box can be used to store seeds in.
The one below is Michaela's box with a metal clasp and more vintage feel.
If you go to the shop you can see both this version and one with a drawer instead of an album.
I know that CoolKatzCraft has not been going long but we are growing all the time and so I am going to put on here a few of the Wizzes, Roll-Top Boxes and Albums so that the new subscribers can get some ideas on how to decorate them.
Clare has spray painted her Standard Wizz, has made the hole in the top for putting pens, rulers, Glossy Accents etc into.
Anita (shown above) has decorated her Standard Wizz with mdf letters and stencils.
The Buzz Wizz has been made without a hole in the top - ooops, that will treat me to let my husband in on the construction! This was spray painted with wallpaper on the top and a bee stamped onto heat resistant acrylic
Rosemary has painted her Mini Wizz with spray paint and highlighted it with gold gilding wax, and added some dachshunds at the bottom.
Here is another one of the boxes that was made by Rosemary in our design team. She decided to use a stamp set that she had already - Stampendous Frog Yoga - and has made it really bright and powerful. So if you can part with your finished box and are going to give it to someone who has a certain favourite flower, pet or an interest in cars or trains then if you have some stamps that would be an economical way to decorate it.
There are three 'secret' compartments in the Hidden Gem Box, one in the lid and two either side of the inside of the drawer. Its measurements are L 24.5cm, W 18.9cm, H 16.7cm and weight: 700g
