Jasmine and Oliver Teenage Stamps and our new Sentiment Stamps are Out Now!

Finally our new teenage stamps are here! They are ready to be shipped to all those who have placed advanced orders so they will be winging their way to you from tomorrow. Anyone who hasn't yet had the chance, do get your order in quickly as they may not last! We've had loads of brilliant feedback about these new designs as teenagers are so hard to make cards for. These seem to hit the mark for both cardmakers and their teenagers, which is great news as it's what Laila wanted to achieve with our lovely artist!  
The new sentiment stamps are also great too for all kinds of occasions, as well as complementing these new designs so well. If you want to see some fantastic cards do look on our Pinterest Board or we hope to see some of you at our LOTV Pop Up Shop at The Loft Coffee Shop on St George's Day, 23rd April! I will also be putting some more fab cards from our Design Collective on here later today.
You can buy any 4 of these new stamps for just £16 and 3 sentiment sheets for £35. Don't forget shipping is free on all orders of £10 or more.

More Fantastic Cards to get your mojo going!

Hi Girls and Guys!

I hope you've been loving all the sneak peeks of our new stamps. Just to let you know that we have had so many advanced orders before the launch that we have had to order more, so please do get your order in to guarantee yours! We will have more for the actual launch on 31st March but we cannot guarantee they will last long as so many have already been allocated - so if you don't want to wait if they sell out on 31st March, do get your order in now Click Here to take you straight to the advanced orders page

Today we have more lovely cards to show you from our talented ladies Ruth, Karen, Kat, Marianne & Jayne. We hope you enjoy using yours when they drop through the letter box very soon!

More Brilliant Teenage Cards - Oliver

As promised here are some more fantastic cards for you see of our new Oliver Stamps. This colour co-ordinated set by Vicky Bailey shows how versatile they are - you can still choose a similar theme for both Jasmine and Oliver but these show you can still do a fantastic job with the boys cards too - which many cardmakers often struggle with. We hope you'll find these sooo useful for all your sons, nephews, grandsons and all their friends!

Our talented Design Team have been working away with some of our new designs, so you will have plenty of inspiration by the time they are launched on 31st March. You can place your advanced order now to secure your stamps before they sell out - so thanks to all those who have ordered already. If you haven't had a chance to have a look yet, I am sure you'll agree these cards give you some great ideas for different looks. A big welcome back to Jacqui Dennis who you will no doubt recognise both her name and style. After a long break from cardmaking she has kindly agreed to make some cards for us to promote these new designs. She actually started our blog for us right back when we started stamping in 2009!  I will post more cards tomorrow from more of our great team. To order visit
