April Release Countdown Teasers Day 1: All Booked Up

28 March, 2020 7 comments Leave a comment

We were unsure about going ahead with the April release but ultimately decided that, if nothing else, the countdown teasers could be a small distraction, and the inspiration provided by our incredible design team may bring some light relief during these stressful and worrying times. 

I am giddy with excitement to announce that we have Rina Galit guest designing this month.  Rina is unbelievably talented and very much in demand, she has designed for all the top stamping companies, including a personal favourite of ours, Mama Elephant.  Her popular Instagram is full of the most amazing displays of creativity and we are honoured to have her join us for the countdown teasers this month.

 

 

Additionally, we are delighted our wonderful Design Team member Lisa is back on board, having now settled in her lovely new home.  Needless to say we will have an abundance of inspiration for you this month.

We have six new stamp sets coming on the 1st of April and to kick things off today, we're introducing a stamp set called All Booked Up.
