Hi everyone! I’ve been very bad and spent money I don’t have on lots of pretty things to build up my craft collection. From the Craft Superstore website I ordered (amongst other things) these pretty new packs of stickers.
The first ones are new Anita’s outline stickers featuring lots of pretty, decorative dressmaking designs like little scissors and needles and a sewing machine. I like these because the stickers are a kind of matt silver/grey rather than the usual shiny silver, and I think this makes them so much more stylish. The ones in the middle as also Anita’s, with lots of shiny silver buttons. Finally, the little sparkly apples on the end are Craft Planet stickers.
The dressmaking ones were perfect to add some detail to my cute little dress card!
I also ordered a Papermania Elegance pack from the Craft Superstore website, as it was the only place that seemed to have it available, but when my order arrived it wasn’t there, just a note to say they don’t have it in stock any more. I was pretty disappointed as it was the only reason I chose the website in the first place! But never mind. I did order some bits and pieces from the Elegance collection through the docrafts website. EVERYTHING you can buy on the site has money off – there are some very good offers indeed – though postage is a hefty £4.99 at the cheapest. They don’t have any of the recent ranges as they encourage you to buy these from your local stockist, but they do have plenty of choice from previous ranges.
Here you can see the Forever Friends Black & Gold cardstock letter stickers on the left, and then two lots of Papermania Elegance letter stickers in the middle. On the end are Papermania embossed and foiled gemstone stickers with crowns, fleur de lys and swirly patterns! I love the black and gold colour themes here – they will make some very pretty cards!
Here you can see some of the gorgeous items (stickers, transfers, stamps and ribbon) from the Papermania Persimmon and Silent Night ranges. I’ve got some Persimmon paper so the letter stickers, stamps and ribbon will go perfectly with this. The Silent Night ribbon is adhesive which is very exciting – ribbon stickers! I might have to have a practice with the transfers – don’t think I have done this since I was little!
To continue the Christmas theme, I also bought some Papermania Mistletoe Kisses stickers (which come with two sheets of glittery stickers in the pack) and some Forever Friends Cosy Christmas cardstock alphabet stickers. I don’t normally like Forever Friends (I don’t like the little bears!), but these stickers are very stylish and an awesome Christmassy colour!
Finally, I got three packs of Papermania vinyl stickers (only 25p per pack!). The designs are black with white glitter, in beautiful vintage shapes. I can’t wait to add these to my projects!
