Announcements, Prize Winners and More!

Happy New Year! - it is only day 2 of 2014 and it is already shaping up to be an exciting year! I have just received a copy of the new Close To My Heart Idea Book/Catalogue today - the new ( and amazing ) products aren't available until the 1st Feb....but I am happy admiring and planning....especially because I have lots to share with you before then.

Firstly, after the feedback from last years kits I have taken onboard your feedback and I can honestly say this year's kits are going to be "bigger & better" and with 2 options for receiving the ideas I hope no-one misses out this time around! Here is the information you will need if you are wanting to be on my mailing list this year. If you are planning on taking up Option#2 - you will find my online store here with the link to the online gathering/orders at the bottom right of the page.

and the **Winner** of my kit prize giveaway last month (for simply making a comment on my blog) is Nicky Wilson - send me an email Nicky and I will post your kits out to you....hope you enjoy them :)
January is National Papercrafting Month with Close To My Heart and there is even more card kit fun to be had.....the fabulously bright & whimsical 10 card... Cloud Nine Cardmaking Kit is available to you when you place a $55 order with me (1st January- 31st January),  for just $20..... this also gives you the January Stamp of the Month for just $5 - what a great New Year saving that is! PLUS a BONUS gift to you from me will be included with all orders...the BRAND NEW super-sized 2014 Idea book (saving you another $5) ...this means you will get to see all the new product before the 1st February launch.

...head on over to my Online Shop to place your order and learn more about this wonderful offer....while you are there be sure to check out the January Stamp of the is another sweet stamp set to add to your collection....I "love" it and was excited to find I had extra paper pieces and embellishments in my Cloud Nine Cardmaking Kit to make up this special little card.
The cotton reel and button embellishments were created from shapes cut from the Artiste Cricut Collection with a little embroidery thread added to the centre of the buttons. This card took no time at all to make up...and because it was so easy I whipped up another.....and of course it had to be Pink!
I added a little extra dimension to my flower buttons with a piece of  3D Foam Tape. I rather like the raised appearance....and because I cut out additional buttons I think I might follow this card pattern and make up a few more of these cards before the day is over.
I'm looking forward to sharing lots of creative play with you this year make sure you stay tuned - follow me here or at Facebook so you don't miss a thing!!
