We're in the middle of our annual camping beach holiday. With just a few more weeks before the cherubs go back to school, we're making the most of what's left of the long summer break.

Having a ball, in fact!


I have fabulous memories of going to the same holiday spot as a girl, year after year, and playing with the same kids who'd always camp there too. Riding the waves and the endless feeling of sand between the toes. It makes my heart so happy to see my kids having these experiences too and loving it! The moment we arrive the kids fall out of the car and RUN to the sand. Just like I did! I feel some scrapbooking coming on :)



Thanks to the wonders of modern technology (solar panels, a 12 volt charger and my beloved ipad!) I was still able to process all my lovely customers' Clearance Rack Blitz orders when the final list went live on the 11th.

Although many items sold out almost straight away, there are plenty of good bargains still available. Let me know if there's anything you'd like from the final list.


Happy stamping,

"Sealed With Love" Simply Sent Kit – makes 10 note cards/envelopes


Little Valentines

The stamps are the perfect complement to the Simply Sent kit, but are also great on their own. Here we've added them to simple 7cm x 7cm mini cards. Colours are from this year's new In Color range (including Summer Starfruit, Primrose Petals, Raspberry Ripple & Midnight Muse), and the oh so lovely Flowering Flourishes stamp set.

2. Stamp I {Heart} You greeting, and punch using the small ticket on the Ticket Duo punch.



3. Layer sentiment ticket over jewellery tag shape. Add bakers twine and hang from card. To stop it moving around too much add a Dimensional or glue dot to tag.
