May 2015 - The Crafty Spark

3 more days to go........ 3 3 3

So, with the new catalogue launch one day closer, I thought I'd tickle your taste buds a bit more with another card-in-a-box this time made from the decadent Bohemian Designer Series Paper and coordinating cardstock in Delightful Dijon, Rich Razzleberry and Bermuda Bay.  I should've post it this morning but hey.... better late than never right ;-)




Don't have a new catalogue yet??....... EMAIL me your name and address and I'll pop one in the post to you (UK only - sorry to all my international followers..... the postage to you will be a fortune!).  If you are already one of my lovely customers, your catalogue is already on it's way to you :)

The Countdown Begins...... 4 4 4 4

It's getting quite exciting isn't it, only 4 days to go before the launch of the new catalogue YAYYY :)  Don't have a new catalogue yet??....... EMAIL me your name and address and I'll pop one in the post to you (UK only - sorry to all my international followers).  If you are already one of my lovely customers, your catalogue is already on it's way to you :)

To give you a little taster of what's to come, over the next few days I'm going to share with you some sneaky peaky creations made by me and some of my fellow demonstrator using some of the new products from the NEW CATALOGUE :)  Like what you see below?? Well, I'm going to be selling Mini Packs of the lovely new Designer Series Papers and Matching Mini Packs of the Cooordinating Cardstock so you can have a play too!  The only boring bit in all of this is that you to wait until Tuesday 2nd June to place your order :(
