Art Pad News and Frosty Fun…




Good morning bloggers, thank you for stopping by and I hope you’re all enjoying the weekend
I have news today about our popular art pads, we’re excited to launch next Thursday a gorgeous set of 7 new Christmas Art Pads,but wait for the best bit… these new pads are XL and now feature 60 images instead of 30… for the same price of only £6.00!
There are still 10 designs but we have amended the layout and you now get 6 of each instead of 3 so they are even better value for money… and postage is still free on all the art pads
 

LOTV ART PAD SET 29 LOTV ART PAD SET 30 LOTV ART PAD SET 31 LOTV ART PAD SET 32 LOTV ART PAD SET 33 LOTV ART PAD SET 34 LOTV ART PAD SET 35

 
You’ll notice that number 33 is called Christmas Cuties, this pad includes the adorable image shown on today’s card…
Lou used the stamp and it’s called  Frosty Fun

The stamped elements are from the Grunge Christmas Postmarks set and Lou mixed and matched papers from the following pads…
 

LOTV TWAS THE NIGHT PAPER PAD FRONT COVER large  LOTV ALWAYS AND FOREVER SOLIDS PAPER PAD
 LOTV SHABBY SHACK
 
 
I love how she used the blue design from Shabby Shack, it looks snowy, I would never have thought to use those papers for Christmas cards

As always we have daily candy so leave a comment to be in the draw, our winner from Friday is Kelly Lloyd
Well done Kelly, email your address to erica@liliofthevalley.co.uk

Enjoy the rest of the weekend one and all… and make sure you stop by tomorrow when I’ll have a new card from our August Guest Designer Vicky

  47. Another gorgeous card.
    That's great news that the new art pads are 8" x 8". This gives more options when using larger frame dies and making 8" x 8" cards.
    Fabulous!

    1. Hi Donna, the art pads are the same size we have just taken out some of the white space so that 2 images could fit onto each page. It's much better value but if you like to use them with a variety of dies maybe not as good for you.
