          We are excited to show you all of the new products that will be available in our store at 8pm (BST) UK time.  Unfortunately, they are not yet available at Simon Says Stamp as we were unable to ship them in time.

          We regret to inform you that there will be no coordinating dies for this months release, we have decided to put a hold on them for a little while but will keep you updated if things change.  Sincere apologies for any disappointment or frustration this decision causes.

          April New Product Release

          New Products

          The wonderful Keren has one last teaser to share with you today and the equally wonderful Michelle has produced a fabulous release reveal video for us, Michelle's videos are so professionally done, they leave us in awe.

          A huge thank you to our guest designer Rina, who has blown us away with her creations this month, we are very grateful and very sad we don't get to keep her!

          We understand that for many of our customers and supporters, this is an uncertain, frightening and unsettling time.  We are not expecting many orders, we just hope that you have enjoyed the teasers, we have certainly enjoyed reading your comments and connecting with you.

          We'd also like to reassure you that we are adhering to social distancing rules and government guidelines.  Our picking, packing and posting is a one (healthy) woman operation, and being a tiny business we receive very few orders, therefore they can be placed in a postbox (located at the top of our road) with no need to visit the Post Office.

          For a chance to win all of this month's new stamp sets, please head on over to our facebook page and leave a comment on today's post.

          Thank you again, look after yourselves and please stay safe.
