Hi Everyone
Sorry I haven't updated the blog for some time. I have been really busy sourcing new craft items and making up new kits. I have also now made a show stand in preparation for starting to do shows!! Eeek  :(

I have never done one before so it is quite daunting, though I am ready to give it a go this year!

We have also just taken over Miniature Kits which currently specialises in downloadable miniatures click on the name of the web site above to go directly to it! If anyone has any ideas or requests in terms of new downloads and new kits then we would be delighted to hear from you.

Don't forget we also continue to stock a small number of the latest editions of Dollshouse and Miniatures Scene Magazine and The Dolls House Magazine at The Craft Pack Company

Anyway, here is a selection of some kits we have added to Craft Pack recently:

Selection of Christmas Items available as one large kit or individually
Vintage Maps and Scrolls
Bumper Soaps Kit (discs and labels)

Boxed Bouquet of Roses

At long last I am able to update the news page and let you all know what has been going on behind the scenes here at Craft Pack.

We have been incredibly busy over the past few weeks having received a commission from Dolls House & Miniatures Scene Magazine for 2000 Teddy Bear Kits that will be given as a gift to all subscribers in the November addition! This was no mean feat given that I have a salaried job on top of Craft Pack and Lorraine Miniatures. All of the components in every single kit is hand cut and packed. We had a very short time frame to complete the order, I am happy to say we delivered 7 days ahead of schedule!

The idea for this little kit came about in 2005 after I visited a garden centre where an elderly lady was selling beautifully hand made teddy bears. Amongst those she had for sale was a 1 inch tall pipe cleaner teddy. I bought it and asked her how she made it and she kindly sat and showed me. I told her I would like to make it into a kit and she laughed saying it was only a bit of fun! Well that bit of fun became one of my most popular little kits on Lorraine Miniatures where I have sold it since 2007. It is now part of the Craft Pack portfolio of kits too. So if you are not a subscriber to DHMS then you can get your little pipe cleaner teddy kit here at Craft Pack or at Lorraine Miniatures. I am also offering one as part of this months prize draw. See below.

As a result of all the work involved in fulfilling the commission for DHMS, getting orders out to customers as swiftly as always, designing and making new kits and going to my salaried job it's been all go, with little time for anything else.....sleep....what is that?! No really, keeping the news page up to date has had to wait I am afraid. Otherwise business has carried on as usual! I apologise to our loyal readers and customers for the wait.

From 1st September to 1st october 2011 we will be having a new sale of some old favourites and some of our new kits. We re-launched the ever popular grab bags in July and these flew off the shelves, so we have listed some more. We have also listed a huge range of new craft materials and we are awaiting a delivery of yet more new stock. On top of which we have designed, produced, launched and sourced dozens of new kits. So in all, since taking over Craft Pack in November 2010 we have vastly expanded the range of products available and will continue to do so.

In addition to the sale each customers name during the month of September 2011 will be entered into our prize draw for a chance to win our teddy bear kit or one of our Christmas kits below. The winners name will be announced on or around the 1st October.

Here is just a snippet of some of the new kits available at Craft Pack:

Pink Lady Soap Box Kit - Click Here
Child's Pretty Summer Dress, Mop Cap & Jacket Kit - Click Here
