A warm welcome from the new team

A warm welcome from the new team

A big welcome from the new team at Craft Creations!

We are so excited to be launching this new website and will be adding products to it every day over the coming weeks as we gradually expand the range.

Many of you know that the original 33 year old paper craft design and manufacturer Craft Creations Ltd closed recently to allow the previous owners Paul and Jenny to retire, and that Katy Sue Designs completed a deal to acquire the business brand and relocate the manufacturing to South Shields.

Sue Balfour, CEO of Katy Sue Designs said “When I saw the wonderful Heidelberg machinery and met the owners of the Craft Creations I immediately fell in love with the business. This acquisition will double the size of our manufacturing and build on our silicone mould business broadening our product range into the paper craft market. We would like to thank Paul and Jenny for all their help and support during the transition of the business and wish them well in their retirement.”

We relocated manufacturing from Cheshunt the original home of Craft Creations, up to the north east  of England here in South Shields.

 The big move

Our team has been working around the clock for the last few weeks to install the manufacturing equipment and work through the vast product range. We have added the most popular products to the website straight away but hope you can bear with us whilst we begin manufacturing of additional products and of course add some exciting brand-new designs to the Craft Creations brand!

Quality is such an important factor and that’s why we relocated all of Craft Creations machinery to our Factory here in the North.

 

 It’s been a big job to prepare for manufacturing, but we are getting there!

 More about the Craft Creations and the move

Craft Creations offers a range of paper craft and card products direct to consumers by a popular website which Katy Sue Designs has recently refreshed, moving it onto a popular ecommerce platform.

To facilitate the move, the company has doubled its manufacturing and warehouse capacity in South Shields with support from South Tyneside Council and hopes to create 10 new jobs during the next 12 months. In addition to this the company has made a significant investment in equipment to print, foil and cut paper products. This equipment was funded by the ERDF SAM Project at the University of Sunderland.  The enlarged UK business is expected to turn over £3m this year.

To help with the huge expansion, we doubled in size taking the two extra manufacturing units.

Very sorry to see Craft Creations go – hope everything goes well for you all.
I am gutted that I can no longer order my favourite oval aperture cards – size 265 × 190 mm + envelopes and cellophane. Just do not know where to go from here.

My friend and I are so happy to read that you are going to bring the craft creation business to the North East we have missed being able to source our craft needs, especially the decoupage sheets. Well done and we wish you all the best with your new venture.
