Card Makers Subscription Monthly Kit

I have been rather busy behind the scenes at home, and have recently gone self employed. I am taking samples of my wedding stationery to a local shop for it to be sold, how exciting!!

I am also now offering monthly subscription card makers kits, every month on the 15th of the month a gorgeous box will be posted. The box will contain lots of bazzill, patterned paper, card blanks, envelopes and card bags for you to to sell your cards on once made.

Included with this kit will also be buttons, brads, flowers, ribbons, layering mats and a variety of other things. Some months the kits will be 6x12 and other months A4 or 8x8, kits will be delivered in a box so that papers are uncreased.

The kits will be available for £12, this includes free postage within the UK.

I am a scrap booker at heart and understand that value for money and strokability is a huge factor.

Thoughts and requests will be listened to and I have set up a facebook fan page so that ideas can be jotted down. Here is the facebook link :)

Oooooo I am rather excited!

New crafting space

What a busy month I have been having, things have been toooooo hectic here and I am so sorry for not updating sooner. Not everything has gone well, the guy I was dating is now only a friend..... hey ho a single gal appears to be my role in life.

I have happily remained good friends with him, and am glad that we got past the temper tantrums. He came over 2 weeks ago and built me a crafting area, knowing how important it is to me and my sanity.

The house has been a major disaster as I have also been decorating Katies room, had her at hospital for more steroid injections, decided to clear out clutter, started and walked out of the job from hell, and heck things are just starting to calm down and I have had time to get back to my cards. So here is what happens when you take a month off from crafting and finally get back into it
