Christmas Crafts!

Christmas is such a lovely time of year to get crafty! At our last year's Christmas party I was given a lovely book Little Christmas Decorations to Knit & Crochet as my secret santa present (Thank you, Kate!)
So the last few weeks I have been busy knitting decorations from it. How cute is this little jumper decoration. It's probably safe to say it's the cutest thing I've ever knitted!

We've also seen some lovely Belle & Boo Christmas crafts. Lovely stockings, and decorations including some super cute dinky Christmas tree bunting! We also love how our one of the cross stitch patterns from Cross Stitcher magazine has been turned into a cushion by Dianne (the lovely lady who stitched our Boo Angel and Boo cushion cross stitch patterns for us!)

And speaking of cross stitch, be sure to pick up your copy of the latest issue of Cross Stitcher magazine as Belle & Boo feature on the cover! How exciting!

If you've  crafted any Belle & Boo inspired goodies then please share them with us! You can email them or post them on Instagram and use the hashtag belleandboo.

Lots of love, Clare xx

Pingsome

A lot of my friends have fun, creative jobs and I like nothing more than when we can work together, so it was a huge pleasure to be asked by my friend Sarah to be part of Pingsome. Ssshhhhhh don't tell anyone but in the past I haven't been a huge fan of online greeting cards, I am more a traditional card and envelope girl, but Pingsome won me over from the start. It helps that I REALLY, really like a lot of the artisits that they work with, I have sent this card by Kate Hindley A LOT. 


I find the site easy and fun to use. I also like the immediancy of thinking about someone and being able to send them a card and message there and then. 

They are running a competition at the moment in association with Belle & Boo that is adorable. It is called 'Bring a Snowman to life' you can read all about it here, but the basic premis is your childs drawing of a snowman could be turned into a mini movie, how cute is that.

You can see the the latest Belle & Boo card here, it's really fun see your drawings come to life.

Ring Ring!

This is a project we've had in the back of our minds for a while so we are so thrilled that is is now a reality!

Our new and lovely phone cases currently come in 7 models (iPhone 4/S, 5S, 5C, 6, 6+ - Samsung Galaxy 4, 5). Unfortunately these are the only cases we are able to print with so we apologise to anyone with a HTC, LG or any other phone model.

In addition to the phone cases we also have iPad cases (for models 2,3 and 4) in the same matching designs.

All the phone and iPad cases are printed in the UK using a process called dye sublimation. Fancy!

Christmas Fabric

Hot off the press, our new Winter Wonderland Christmas fabric has just arrived!


The beautiful snowy unisex design features Belle & Boo with their Christmas stocking, alongside the ever popular Mr Fox and Reindeer! It's printed on lovely 100% cotton poplin and is perfect for your crafting.

We cannot wait to see what you'll make with this fabric.  Be sure to send us photos of your creations either via email or use the hashtag #belleandboo on Instagram.

Available again this year is our Christmas Carousel Fabric Panel.  We were delighted to see this dress made by our customer, Victoria, which cleverly uses the different elements from the fabric!

Splish and Splosh!

Soap and bubbles and splish and splosh, Boo the rabbit is having a wash!

Did you know we have a lovely new range of bath and hair products?
We teamed up with UK company Sapona to make this lovely range of products that includes hair and body wash, a cute Boo bath mitt, flannel and bath fizzer.




All of the bath products carry our 'Kind To You Promise'
"We’ve used a gentle, pH balanced formulation containing Aloe Vera to soothe and help maintain the skin’s natural moisture levels. This product is paraben-free, uses a mild fragrance and is free from artificial colours, so it is kind to your child’s skin, leaving it soft and smooth."

Along side the lovely bath collection there is also a very sweet hair accessories range to help your little ones look as lovely and classic as our Belle! Both the Alice band and the Bow clips come in 4 lovely colours.
