Time for a hop… and some news

 

 

 

Morning all, we’re having a blog hop today to celebrate the release of our latest stamps and papers, but first some news….

I know many of you love our Ideas to Inspire blog and all the fabulous work we share from our talented DT, but I’m sorry to tell you that it will be closing in December when we finish for Christmas

But, I’m excited to also be able to tell you that we are launching a brand new website in the New Year which will have all the same great daily inspiration and more!

We are keeping all the best bits of our existing website but there will also be a fantastic ideas section where you can see a different card and project everyday as well as loads of helpful projects and tutorials. The website will have some much needed features for you our customers such as being able to create your own account and view your order history, zoom functions so you can see the products more clearly and the facility to add wish lists so you can save favourites for later

Of course you will still be able to visit the DT’s own blogs for inspiration using our products and we are very much looking forward to launching our new website for you in January 2015!

Right, onto the hop, we have 10 cute new stamps and 3 paper pads which will be available on the website from Monday and also at our Christmas open day on Saturday if you are coming along

Visit each blog for ideas using the new products and we have 2 hidden prizes along the way; a set of the 10 new stamps and also the 3 new paper pads. The winners will be drawn at random from the comments that are left on the 2 lucky blogs

Just follow the links and hop from one blog to the next, if you get lost along the way just come back here and pick up where you left off

You're A Star - Anne

I used a greeting from our popular Everyday Grungy Messages set

The pretty papers are from one of our new NitWit collections, I love the pink and green colour combination and this pad is called Butterfly Kisses

    1. Hi Rian, we will still have our DT and they each have their own blogs.
      Instead of this blog the daily inspiration will be on our new website.
      I hope that is clearer for you xx
