Christmas in July – DT blog hop!

bloghop880

Morning crafters, thanks for stopping by

I have a bit of a treat for you today, a blog hop with our full DT…  and some fabulous prizes!

***

We’re celebrating the release of our latest new products, our first Christmas launch of 2014 is a lovely mix of cute rubber stamps, useful clear stamps and festive patterned paper pads

We have an adorable set of 22 cute character stamps; new vintage boys & girls, cute angels and ever popular snowmen and penguins

There are 5 new clear stamp sets; mixed Christmas sentiments and carols, some everyday recipes and also some exciting mini images which add a nice finishing touch to your work

Last, but certainly not least, we have 4 fabulous new Christmas paper pads, Snow Princess (patterned and solids) ‘Twas The Night and Festive Trimmings

LOTV FESTIVE TRIMMINGS PAPER PAD

 LOTV SNOW PRINCESS PAPER PAD

 LOTV SNOW PRINCESS SOLIDS

 LOTV TWAS THE NIGHT PAPER PAD

 

The new items will be available to buy on the website from midnight on Friday August 1st (UK time)

***

As I said, the LOTV design team are all joining in the fun today. You need to ‘hop’ from one blog to another following the links and leave a comment on each card, hopefully we can give you lots of ideas and inspiration along the way for using the new images

As always there are fabulous prizes up for grabs on this hop, we don’t know where they are hidden so do make sure you that you visit and comment on every blog

I will let you know tomorrow evening which were the ‘lucky’ blogs and the winners will be drawn at random from all the comments that were left on those blogs

***

We have a full set of the new Christmas image stamps to give away;

1st prize is the 12 angels, penguins and snowmen

2nd prize is the 10 vintage children


Here's a list of the blogs, and remember that you will need to visit them all and leave a comment on each one to have the best chance of winning;
