Now to our lovely sweet news, please say hi to our own 
Jacqueline! 

JACQUELINE KLUEH
SHC USA Store Manager

Hello, my name is Jacqueline Klueh and I am so excited to be part of Swedish House Crafts and Magnolia-licious. I am looking forward to managing the US store. I can't even put into words just how excited I am to worth with Suha Hazboun, who is a brilliant business woman and very talented artist. I truly enjoy working with crafters. I started with oil painting and graphic design, and later I got into making journal and scrapbook pages. For the past seven or years, I have been making cards and dabbling in mixed media. My children at home, ranging from 15 months to eighteen years old. As you can imagine, life is very interesting. I know that the products that Swedish House Crafts carry will be widely received in the US. I look forward to seeing all the creations that new and current customers make and post on Swedish House Crafts Lounge and Magnolia-licious Facebook pages. You can follow me on Instagram, creativepapercrafting and on my Facebook page at Creative Paper Crafting with Jacquie Again, I look forward to getting to know all of you.

Thank you Jacqueline for becoming part of SHC family, I promise you lots of work and lots of fun! I know the US is a some hundred times bigger craft platform than UK but UK will always support you though. 

What about the store? I am working on the stock to be shipped to Jacqueline within next week. Delivery delays forced me to wait, such as the fabulous Lady dies which are always out of stock and we have to wait for more to be delivered at all times, they are unique so we understand. There will be lots of foamiran for flower making lovers with all accessories. Magnolia stamps of course are on top of the list. The chance they arrive earlier than they ever been will be in focus too. Magnolia Sweden is back on track after the unpleasant experience they went through the past year. So we are all excited about the news! We will have new brands you didn't hear of before too, of course exclusive to Swedish House Crafts USA. 

Magnolia-licious is going to live its glory with kudos to Diana Crick the founder. It is the American home for Magnolia Sweden and will take its original status! More about beloved Magnolia-licious will come on eventually after the store is up and running shortly.

I know there is lots to take in, so let's take it one step at a time, or let's load up Jacqueline with it all and I go grab my cup of coffee...

The boring paperwork for the store is almost done now, while Jacqueline and I are working on the store itself which include the design, the product listing, the pricing, the shipping cost, the taxes, the accounting... It is a bit of a challenge to finish it in short time without missing bits here and there but then we thought it is a good idea if you like to be the inspector and tell us about it at all times, at the end of the day, it is yours.

Keep looking for more news soon...

If you have any question, suggestion or any enquiry, at the moment the email is still hello@swedishhousecrafts.co.uk.

Thank you all for the tremendous support! Without you all, I can't do it!

Cheers from me,
Suha Hazboun

Hi Cookie August Challenge Winners

September 02, 2019




I am very humbled for the feedback I have been receiving and the incredible amount of downloads has been made for the new digital stamps. It stunned me! That has been a great motive for me to continue drawing. 

While all the positive feedbacks and mass download, only few people entered the challenge. Should I blame the month of vacations? or school start? Well, both, and you too, lol. Anyway, I hope you enjoy it and use it in your projects, of course share your work with us.

We had the challenge on 2 blogs and in the Swedish House Crafters Lounge Facebook group

I love the makes. As for the winners for the challenge where they entered:

Magnolia- licious Closing out Sale

July 02, 2019


THE NOT GOOD NEWS
Today I am sharing with you some news regarding the store, it is a sad news but will turn into good news as well. After a deep thinking and long hesitation, I have finally decided with sadness to close down Magnolia-licious. I have to put my family first as well as my other business which is my major job.
It has been a wonderful journey, where I met many crafters who became friends and close friends. I learned all about the crafting and card making which I also discovered that I do like crafting and colouring which I intend to continue crafting when time allows and promise to share with you all when I can.
THE GOOD NEWS
However, an unexpected event Swedish House Crafts from UK has jumped in the right time and decided to keep it open in North America. The store is run by Suha Hazboun since 2016 in UK and has been growing internationally since. I have known her for more than 2 years now. I can say, from experience, working with her is a pleasure. She’s very professional and her store is known for delivering a great customer service. You will be in safe hands!
Suha will be your major contact but the store will be run by someone else located in USA. Suha has been planning to open in the US for a while and now looking for a Store Manager within USA. Apply via her website if you are interested. This is your chance to run Magnolia-licious in USA for Suha once she takes over. She and I are in the arrangement of the transition process but will keep you updated.
CLOSING DOWN SALE
I will be having a major sale to move inventory that I have in the store. Everything will be on sale for 50% off. This sale will run until the end of July or until inventory is gone! I hope you can take advantage of this opportunity. The coupon code to use will be called BIGDEALS
EUROPEAN SHIPPING DEAL
I would like to personally thank all of you and your amazing commitment to the store. Of course, Suha suggested and I take her suggestion into consideration. All European customers who want to grab a bargain, please choose “Check Money Order” at checkout. This option will reserve your order but you do not pay me until I send you a separate invoice. Shipping will be a flat rate $7 to your home via Suha. The shipping date will between 1 and 10 August with no delay. I will pack all orders and ship to Suha and she will send your orders within 1-3 working days depending on the size of your pack. If you are in a hurry, just complete your order and I will ship you as soon as possible.
DOOHICKEY KITS 22 & 23
In regard to DooHickey Kits and Vintage Boxes not shipped yet. These will be sent out as soon as I get them. If Suha takes over prior to them being shipped, she will make sure everyone receives the kits. Cheers, Shawn
I would like to once again thank all of you for supporting the store. It has been a great experience.

Cheers, Shawn



This is your chance to get some great deals! Don't miss out! I will do my best to get all the packages out over the coming weeks depending on the volume of orders. The sale will run for the month of July or until inventory is sold out!

Triple Gift box with sweet Rose Tilda !!

June 26, 2019




If you are looking for our Current challenge click HERE
Good morning my dear friends,  I'm here to share my inspirational 
project with you for 


It's Suzi here and I've made a cute gift box courtesy of a love lady I follow
on Youtube who shares her tutorials freely and with love.



I inked up sweet Rose Tilda from the Hugs and Kisses collection 2019

She has been coloured with Distress re-inkers and
I cut her down just using her face and the rose so I could add her
to the belly band closure for the gift box. 

My papers are from Lemoncraft.pl and are House of Roses 
and they are one of my all time favourites from Lemoncraft.



The gift box opens to reveal 3 sections to hold whatever you choose to put into them
In my case I made some handmade embellishments for the pockets. The picture below
shows you my makes. I die cut some hearts and decorated them, I die cut some
pretty bows and flowers and of course they all co-ordinate with each other.


Below shows you how the box in more detail, all you need to do is add your
gifts, put the belly band back on to keep it closed and hey presto you have
a fabulous creation to gift to someone special in your life.



I do hope you will pop over and join us this month for the chance
to win a $20.00 gift certificate to use in the Magnolia-licious Store.

The theme is "Lace or Bling"

In the meantime thank you so much for popping in to visit, I hope
you enjoyed your stay and do please come back and see us soon.

Hugs 



Selfie Tilda

June 24, 2019

Good day!!  I'm super excited to be sharing this little beauty today!! 


Here is Selfie Tilda from the Hugs and Kisses collection, who I've framed in a chipboard piece from Laserowe Love "Oval Floral Frames" and they come in a set of 2.  With this chipboard, I added Diamond stickles over the whole frame.  You should see it in real life.  It's soooo sparkly and pretty!!  


Since Tilda is holding a phone, I thought I would try to make a cell phone look like it's texting with someone.  I'm still on the fence about how it turned out but the idea was fun.  LOL!!

I've used some shabby seam binding again in 2 places, added some pins and OH!!  The stitched heart chipboard covered with stickles is also from Laserowe Love.  I must say I think this might be one of my recent favorites!


Well thanks so much for stopping by
and have a great week!!

Hugs,
