Product of the Week !

Project of the Week 1-001

This paper is so much more than meets the eye! The glossy designs look great alone or they will “resist” ink, making them really fun for techniques. Try it with spritzers, brayers, sponges and more. You’ll find that this paper can be used with any style, from bold and bright to elegant and subtle. Try a technique class with your friends where everyone can play with this paper and fall in love with it like I have!  I seriously can’t get enough of this paper!

With unlimited crafty possibilities, this paper is simply a must-have for everyone’s paper stash. You can earn this product for FREE !  Simply place a qualifying £45 order, and you will receive one free Sale-a-Bration product of your choice AND free postage !

Here are some interesting samples from around the ‘net’


Firstly, Sandi MacIver has brayered the ink colour onto the cardstock, and then made it into a stunning box.  In the second photograph, My Stamp Lady has slightly coloured a section of the cardstock, then stamped over it, and then added the die-cut butterfly (from the Butterfly thinlets die in the Spring/Summer catalogue).


In the third sample, Aly from Alystamps has brayered the stars background, and then added her embellishments and sentiment – what a fab idea !   In the fourth sample above, Lisa Brown has daubered the ink onto the background using an ombre effect (light to dark), then added her sentiment and focal stamp layer.  I love this stamp set (Cheerful Critters – only £13.95 for 8 stamps which includes 5 sentiments)


So whether you want to leave this paper plain white, ink it directly with your ink pad, brayer it, dauber it, or colour it in, I’m sure you will agree, that this designer paper is without doubt, well worth playing with.

This is my favourite sample using this paper, and its by Sylvia from sylviasstampinpassion.  I just love the effect !

So, why not put together a card bundle with some inkpads or markers to the value of £45 (cardstock £6.25, white cardstock £7.50, inkpads £4.95, markers *see main catalogue*) and earn this amazing designer paper for FREE !

Bloomin’ Eck !

Lotus Blossom Stamp Set (139143)

This gorgeous stamp set makes anyone feel like an artist in three quick steps. It creates a beautiful flower that looks painted, but it is amazingly easy. The individual stamps have a tab at the top to help you align them, and the tabs are numbered so you will know which part of the flower to stamp first, second, and third. Try playing around using one ink pad with the stamping off technique, or multiple different ink pads to create many different looks.

Bags of Deliciousness !

Well I'm hoping that you have been having a good look at the NEW Spring/Summer Mini Catalogue?  One of the new products that you might have spotted, is this Mini Treat Bag Thinlet.  The possibilities are endless with this die including, wedding favors, gift bags, bags for cards, birthday treat bags ... the list goes on and on!

Here is a bag that I made using the Mini Bag thinlet (Item No: 137547 - £35.95) and the FREE papers from Sale-a-Bration - which are lush incidentally !  I die-cut the bag, and added the 'it's your day' from the BIG on You stamp set (Item No: 137151 - £23.95).  I then coloured in the sentiment and added Crystal Effects to give the title a lovely shine.  I then added some of the NEW quilted cotton ribbon in Hello Honey.  I finished, by die-cutting a Hello Honey butterfly from one of the NEW butterfly framelits, which comes in three sizes of butterflies, (Item No: 137360 - £20.95).  I can't believe how easy they are to make up - so so easy !


Look at all the extras that come with it too - I can see them all being used, particularly the words 'enjoy' and 'love it' ....... actually, I will use ALL of the extras ! ha ha ha !

Whilst looking around, I found this amazing sample of a card and bag ! made by Anne-Marie a German demonstrator whose blog is HERE

And then I found this following sample from Patty Bennetts blog HERE

If you purchase the Mini Treat thinlet AND a pack of designer series papers, the cost will be £45.80 which means that you will earn a FREE Sale-a-Bration gift of your choice, AND free postage !  Double-win !

Happy New Year to all my family, friends, customers and my amazing team, The Hearts !

Let this coming year be better than all the others. Vow to do some of the things you have always wanted to do but could not find the time. Call up a forgotten friend. Drop an old grudge, and replace it with some pleasant memories. Vow not to make a promise you do not think you can keep. Walk tall, and smile more - you will look 10 years younger. Do not be afraid to say, I love you. Say it again. They are the sweetest words in the world." Happy New Year, and I hope 2015 is all you wish for and more! xxx
