Goodbye Gotta Craft

I have some sad news today. Sandra from Gotta Craft is shutting up shop. I'm going to miss her store very much, and I want to send it a fond and loving farewell From High in the Sky. 

Sandra was the first person to ask me to do any Design Team stuff and I'll always remember that. She has been an absolute pleasure to work for - we've had a lot of fun! - and I'll certainly be keeping an eye on her personal blog to see what she gets up to. I hope that Clare and I will continue to enjoy each other's scrapbooking too.

Of course, saying good bye does mean there has to be one last hurrah -and Sandra has a fantastic Closing Down Sale running right now. Go here to grab a bargain (or two or three or four..)

..and if you are a Gotta Crafter - please don't say good bye, keep on saying hello. I'll be looking out for you!

So long Sandra. And thanks for everything

I love the layout and the fact that ya'll provided pumpkins just in case Little E came by ... awesome. I thought by your title that you were going to neglect us and do some major drafting this week. Sorry your friend is closing up shop but hope she has great things awaiting her.

That is such a shame :( Sandra has great taste to be the first to ask you to be part of her design team.

Oh what a shame, it's always sad when your favourite shop shuts down

So sorry to read this - you've been a loyal and enthusiastic supporter, Sian, and I am sure Sandra was glad to have you in the team. This page is one of my favourites ... alexa

As always that is a lovely page, Sian. I like the leaves curled at the edges, so much more eye catching than flat embellishments. Sorry to hear about the shop closing. It's always sad when it is someone you know well. Sandra obviously recognised your skill and style - I spot it every time in Scrap 356 mag.
It is quite destinctive and that's a true artist.

I think that Gotta Craft has provided some of your best layouts! Got home from Belfast just in time to run to class and then take the students on a tour of Parliament. Have barely had time to catch my breath, but everytime I think of our visit, it makes me sooo happy! Will write more soon.

A totally gorgeous layout Sian. I was so taken by your design that I didn't read the journalling at first - that is so funny!
I am sad to see Gotta Craft go too. It is my favourite shop and sells the best kits by far. I will definitely miss my monthly fix!

Ginger said...

This is unfortunate to see, I know you seemed to have really enjoyed being on this DT Sian. We will all miss seeing your Gotta Craft layouts.

Sandra said...

aawww, you've bought a tear to my eye. You of all people know what a difficult decision to make, and as much as I'm going to miss my darling shop - I can't thank it enough for giving you as my friend. You've been such an amazing supporter of me - and truly, I can't thank you enough for that xxx

Jennifer Grace said...

Aw, that's a shame. You have made some amazing layouts with her kits! I wonder what the future will bring...

So tempted to buy one of her grab boxes! x

Sue Althouse said...

Sorry to see another one go. There's been a lot of that online this year, seems to me.

Scrappi Sandi said...

Shame to see Gotta Craft going but hope to still see Sandra around in cyberspace!! Love this LO & I agree with Rinda that some of your most inspiring LO's have been those created for GC kits. I'm off to check out these Grab Boxes!! :D

Jimjams said...

If I'd ever been able to afford a regular kit Sandra's was going to be it!!!

Love your page - so funny!
