Julie: Shop Updates + Sweet Pea Stamps

Hi all. How's Sunday treating you?

I've got a few bits, bobs, snippets of news and things to keep you occupied indoors while it's still below freezing out there! So you get yourself comfy and I'll make a start ...

1. Whether or not you've had the snow where you live, if the scenes from all the recent snow falls have made you feel festive already and given you a taste for all things twinkly then why not take advantage of the special 3 for 2 offer Jean has on the site throughout the month:
"Order any two SHIMMERZ products in December and receive a third one free! (just add the free product in the comments box at checkout)".

So now would be a great time to make a list of which Shimmerz products you'd like for Christmas and pass it on to your friends and loved ones ... after all you'd be saving them money now they can get 3 for 2 wouldn't you? It's like you're doing them a favour really .... ;-)

2. Have you seen the latest products Jean's listed in the shop? There's:

  • the December 'Alter That' kit;
  • lots of new paper pads including ones from My Mind's Eye and Melissa Frances;
  • and a half-price offer on some Tattered Angels Glimmer chips too.

You can check out everything in the super-useful 'New Products' page on the site, but here's a few of my favourites ...

This very smart Lost Coast Design lady caught my eye: The 'Mini Text Diva with Face' possibly a bit of a favourite as her legs are just like mine today as I've got my stripy leggings on! Plus, you've got to love a stripy-legged stamp haven't you?

Then there's a re-stock of this Stained Glass Flower border stamp:

Which is the one I used on both of these tags:

At only £2.00 the border stamps always sell well, so grab yours while you can!

3. There's also some new Sweet Pea stamps available, including this adorable Christmas Elf sheet:

Which Jan and Effie have already been using here and here.

Then there's some 'Phunky Phairies' - one of which I've just used on a feature published in Papercraft Inspirations Magazine next year. I can't show you the full thing, but here's a sneaky peek of how I used the 'Jinx' design: 4. And speaking of Sweet Pea Stamps ... did you know that they have a blog which includes a customer gallery?

I've just discovered it and thought that some of you might like to see the work you've bought from Jean featured on the manufacturers blog, well, everyone likes a little bit of recognition don't they?

You can see the full range of Sweet Pea stamps stocked by Jean here, and below is just some of the uses the Scattered Scarlet design team have made with them over the last few months:Finally ... I also discovered that Sweet Pea have a challenge blog called 'In A Sweet Pea Dream' which seems to offer prizes to the challenge winners! So, get putting those Sweet Pea stamps to good use and make sure to let us know if .. or rather when ... you win!

I'll be back on Tuesday with the cards I've made using the Christmas Elf, but until then, keep those crafty fingers moving so the icicles can't form on them!

Julie :-)
