To Spook, or Not to Spook.....

Hello again.

This year is really rushing past and already it's time to reveal the new kit Snazzy's Design Team will be working with in October. We try to offer them, and you, as varied an array of products as possible throughout the year to inspire and get the mojo going so this time we are sending them a fabulous new paper kit from Carta Bella called All Hallows Eve. It features nine heavyweight, double sided, textured papers  plus a 12x12 Element Sticker sheet and a 12x12 Alphabet sheet. As an addicted stamper I must confess I rarely use stickers, but these sheets are textured too and have a lovely fabricky feel to them. Very tactile!

Of course, as we are very much a stamping store, they also need some stamps to work with. So, the new Halloween Blueprint set from Stampers Anonymous' Tim Holtz collection has winged it's way to them too. They are sooo cool!
We know that lots of you in the UK don't really 'do' Halloween but a sift through these papers does offer lots of patterns that aren't overtly Halloween themed, and both they and the stamps could be used to make some great projects aimed at teenagers too.
Now, something new starting this month. We will be offering the same DT kit as the DT receive each month, through both our bricks and mortar store and online, with discount of at least 10% on the cost of purchasing the products from us separately.
This month, for example, the paper kit costs £15.85 and the Tim Holtz stamps £19.95, but you can purchase both together for £29.95.  
To buy the kit online at the offer price you need to look in the 'DT Kits' category of the online store where the kit will be listed as a single product. (Do not click both products separately in their respective categories as you cannot access the discounted price that way.) This kit will be available from midnight tonight. 
Gillian will be starting the DT off on this month's trail of inspiration over at http://snazzysdesignteamblog.blogspot.co.uk/ from tomorrow, and as usual if you leave a comment during the month, following Gillian's instuctions, you could win some goodies. This month these creepy Adornments fromTim Holtz Ideaology are up for grabs.
The DT do really appreciate you leaving comments to let them know you have been by, and you never know when one of them might pay you a return visit!
I will be back with some very Autumnal workshop samples for October and Novermber later this week.
Bye for now xx


  1. Will be sure to check out the kits! The blueprint stamps are just great! I look forward to seeing what beauties the DT come up with this month.

  2. Woo hoo, I've had a ball with this kit. Great to see it online for everyone to play along too. xxx

  3. BRILLIANT idea Val... I LOVE those papers, I have been stroking them and am steeling myself to cut into them... they are just soooo FAB! I think it is cool that everyone can get the DT kits - and with a discount too... I am off to tell everyone I know :O)) Thanks again for having me on your fabby team xx
