One Day Special,Floral Harmony and a GIVEAWAY

Morning Friends and Crafters. A little celebration today and a 'GIVEAWAY' for you continued support. It's true that for a lot of us smaller and newer companies, your support is valued so highly, without it, I know I couldn't continue to bring my collections to you. So there are details in the today's blog post of how you could get your hands on my Whole New August Collection, 3 Stamps sets, stencils and dies. I am also sharing photos of my New collection Launching today on Hochanda at 11 am and 2 pm. It a comprehensive set of Florals, Leaves, Foliage & swirls in stamps and dies, both styalised and realistic.

I know everyone loves a floral collection, but mine had to be a little different to what is already out there. One thing I was certain about and that was to take away a lot of the inner detail and shading, leaving just enough to give the shape. This in turn gives you the change to add beautiful colour to your project without too much stamping detail, that way the colours can be a real wow. These are also great for stamping into, Zentangle designs, basically you name it.

There are 3 stamp sets, which are all nearly A4 in size, giving you a huge amount of sizable stamps on each sheet. They are Floral Scent, Floral Harmony ad Floral Companions. The floral Companions set consists of 20 individual stamps. There is a coordination dies set for this, which cuts out your leaves and floral perfectly. The dies are excellent quality and will cut through, paper, card, Craft Metal, Fabric, Soda Cans, leather ad much, much more.

In addition to the stamps and dies, I have designed a unique layering and nesting set of dies, they are the Triskaidecagon collection. Each is great on it's own but the 2 together opens up a variety of options for your crafting. In my opinion these are an essential item, we all need to mat and layer are cards and projects, so adding something different for this was just perfect for my collection. They also make amazing Shaped and Easel card sand are great for mens or ladies cards as well as Jounalling and Scrapbooking. There are 12 in each set, so together there are 24 dies.

I have some more additions to my Floral sets, The rose petal die, was a huge success and so this have been brought back for my show today. It did sell out before I even finished my demo so pleased do be quick. After feedback from quite a few sources I have added an extension set to allow even more versatility so now you can make even larger blooms, great for the centerpiece at a wedding or special occasion. I think most of you know me well enough by now to know that there will be more that you can do with this set so I hope to give you some ideas on the show and also on my blog and youtube channel over the weeks to come.

Another die set I have added to the Craftascope Library this time is the Chrysanthemum die set, like the rose petal dies, these are superb for creating amazing and realistic blooms with Foamiran, but also for you card and paper projects, mixed media, Journalling Scrapbooking and of course the wonderful ATC's. Please be quick with the Roses and Chrysanthemums, they have proven very popular and as you know the last Rose set I brought lasted a little over 6 minutes. I am a small business and it's not always possible for me to bring them back due to minimum production amounts.

Now onto the bit I am sure you are interested in 'THE GIVEAWAY'. You have the chance to have my full New August collection sent to you. It consists of 3 beautiful stamps sets, 4 Stencils and some wonderful Cathedral Dies, it also included a stunning addition to the Dolphin dies, so it's a cracking prize to have and certainly not to be sniffed at. All you have to do to be in with a chance is write an honest review for any purchase on my Etsy site, thats it, it helps me a great deal to get feedback from my customers and also helps others to decide whether to make a purchase or not. I have even added a 15% discount across the store as well and that includes all of my new launches, even the One Day Special and Today's launch. Any purchase over 25 GBP will have the discount applied automatically. I will randomly select a review and the winner will be announced before my Hochanda Show in August. Please let all of your crafting friends know and like and share the Facebook post. Good luck and thanks for the reviews in advance. 

Well thats all for now my friends, I would like to take the chance again to thank you for all of your support, I have been really touched by the amazing feedback I have received, the wonderful messages and super comments. It means a lot, I know it's very easy for me to say that, but I really do mean that from the bottom of my heart. Do join me and Kathryn at 11 am and 2 pm on Hochanda today. Take care and Happy
