Hi everyone,

 

 

 

 

Happy Tuesday! I hope you are all doing well. Have you entered our Ethereal FQ Bundle Giveaway yet? You can win this bundle of gorgeousness – be sure to enter here!

 

The holiday season is officially here! And there is so much left to do – decorating the tree, finding those last minute gifts, planning the perfect menu for your upcoming holiday party, and baking, baking…and oh yes, more baking. And while we can’t help with your holiday shopping or baking, we’ve got a fun DIY today that will surely add festivity to your party decor!

 

Our Chalkboard Fabric Holiday Banner is perfect for organizing your party (DIY hot chocolate bar, anyone? :)), as a backdrop for a photobooth, or for adding some extra holiday cheer! We had our office Christmukkah party this past weekend, and our banner added a modern and creative element to the decor. And the best parts? It’s not too difficult to make… and it’s reusable!

Hi everyone!

 

 

 

Happy Thursday! How is everyone’s day going? The Easter Bunny made a quick visit to the Camelot Design Studio today, so we are all happily working and enjoying our treats! We hope everyone has a wonderful Easter holiday this weekend, wishing you all  much happiness, love, and yummy food :)

 

It’s time for this week’s Thankful Thursday! Today we are going to be sharing a very exciting event that took place last week in Kitchener: Scrapfest 2014! This very fun festival brought together lots of crafty and inspiring people. There were informative workshops, engaging make-and-takes, and lots of creativity floating around everywhere!

 

Westcott was part of a really great Make & Take, lead by Elizabeth Glenday, and we were very honored to be a part of it too! Our Conversation Heart Banner free tutorial was used as the project, and they used our Ad-Fab™ and chalkboard fabric for the banners. We absolutely adore how they made the conversation hearts, but also Easter-inspired with the cute egg banners! It just shows how easily adaptable this project is for all celebrations and holidays.

We adore the “I made it @ Scrapfest 2014” chalkboard fabric speech bubble! Such a cute idea!! The Make & Take looked like it was SO much fun, and we heard that it was a great success. Everyone who came by enjoyed the project and putting their own spin on it! So great to see crafters of all ages having participated too!

We want to say a HUGE thank you to Brenda Greenwood-Vernem from Westcott, Paula Jones from the CHA, and Elizabeth Glenday for allowing Camelot Fabrics to be a part of a great team. We were so happy that our Conversation Hearts Banner & products were much loved at the Scrapfest event! We were super excited to hear everyone was received well and it was a success. If you want to be a part of the next Scrapfest, or for more information, check out the Scrapfest site here. Thank you once again! Have a great day everyone! :)

Hi everyone!

 

 

 

 

Happy Thursday! We hope everyone is having a terrific day so far. Have you seen our latest Winsday? We are giving away our Roonie the Raccoon Kit, with all the necessary supplies to make your very own plush friend!! If you haven’t, be sure to check it out here.

 

It’s time for this week’s Thankful Thursday, and today we are taking the time to thank Marvy Uchida! Since their establishment in 1973, Uchida of America Corporation has been one of the leading brands in a wide range of quality office, craft, and art-related products. Their product range includes paper punches, pens and markers (including paint markers, fabric markers, gel pens, chalk markers, & more!),  crafting supplies, rubber stamps, and everything else you need to get crafty! They have a wide range in color palette and materials, making all their products perfect for any skill-level crafter.

 

We are huge fans of Marvy Uchida products, especially their pens and markers. As a fabrics company, with the recent launch of our felt and chalkboard fabric, we are always looking for fun and creative ways to use our fabrications. Different types of pens and markers that work with our fabrications….now that is a brilliant idea!

 

Camelot Fabrics | Uchida Chalk Markers

 

We had the privilege of meeting and chatting with some wonderful people from Marvy Uchida at this year’s CHA Show. Their product line includes chalk markers, fabric markers, and gel pens so we were exceptionally thrilled and excited to test them out with our fabrications! With our chalkboard fabric, we tested their markers onto its surface and we were very impressed! The colors were all very vibrant and opaque on the chalkboard fabric surface.. Another bonus: it was also super easy to clean, with just a damp cloth. We also tested them out on our window, another recommended use for them. We had so much fun doodling on our chalkboard fabric and windows with their markers!!

 

We wanted to thank the lovely people at Marvy Uchida for providing us with a wonderful array of chalkboard markers! It was very kind of them to do so, providing us with their Bistro Chalk Markers and Bistro Chalk Markers (Fine Point) to try out on our chalkboard fabric. All of the markers are super opaque, with a stunning neon hue, and very easy to use! Thank you so much, Marvy Uchida, for being super sweet – it was so great getting to meet you at the CHA Show!

 

We hope you have enjoyed this week’s Thankful Thursday! If you haven’t entered our Winsday yet, you can check it out here. Have a great day everyone!
