NEW STUFF, NEW BLOG CANDY, AND MORE...

Had a blast in Peterborough at Hochanda, followed by a couple of days in the full on heat (and it was soooo very hot!) of central London with a bestie!  Now back and new stamps and papers on the site, had to get them on quickly as you were asking for them! Nice opening offers too! If you leave a cool comment at the end of this blog post before next Wednesday, we will put your name in a draw and 2 lucky winners will receive the 2 new stamps and the new background papers below (CI-496 and CI-497)...




Here are a few of the beautiful samples from our fabulous teamies that appeared on the shows.  We have lots more to photograph and to follow, so do keep checking back...




Plus another beauty from Sandra...


And to finish I have two customer makes that I fell in love with today.  The first by Liza Vipas...



And the second by June Ballenger....


Thanks so much ladies for allowing me to share your pieces of gorgeousness tonight!

Don't forget to leave your comments folks.

Back soon,
Jean x

I so enjoyed the two shows Jean, and you and Lesley are a real winning combination. The new stamps are gorgeous and love all the fabulous inspirational cards by the DT. The two ladies...Liza and June have both done a great job too. x

I have a collection of around 1000 seashells from around the world and my fav place to visit is the seaside! This summer we are enjoying taking our son and his friend to the seaside, rock pooling, paddling, playing and collecting shells! So my heart skipped a beat when I saw your new stamps, superb samples and gorgeous papers. Hubby said no more stamps but can I persuade him to change his mind?....Loved the show btw and adored your journal! Can I ask you where you purchased it from please? I haven't found anything here in France. Thank you for the giveaway!

How on earth do you & your colleagues come up with such fantastic designs? I don't have a creative mind and my card designs are always very basic. I would love to suddenly become a creative genius but fear it's not going to happen!

jenbar said...

Gorgeous papers and stamps. Brilliant inspiration too

M@miogée said...


Hello
Les cartes des filles sont magnifiques. Je rêve de pouvoir faire des cartes aussi jolies.
Ca doit être possible avec les timbres et les papiers ??
Les papiers sont supers : plus besoin de faire de la patouille, tout y est !!! C'est trop bien.
Quant aux tampons ils sont trop beaux : Vive les Vacances !!

Bref : J'adooore tout !!

Bon Week-end
