Thursday’s Blog is something Blue...

Hi there,
Thanks for popping in.

Decided it’s time for another book of papers.
You know, like the Northern Lights one, but different colours.
Dee’s already designed her next two, but I am dragging my heels!

So out with the alcohol inks and the yupo paper....

It’s messy, but fun.


I designed the last collection to work behind parchment 
as well as for regular stamp art and cardcraft. 
This is the Northern Lights book:


We’re running low on this one,
so it’s time to reprint.

They have all been very popular, but the Northern Lights one definitely hit the Groovi Spot.
Actually, we have had a very good idea ... more will be revealed.

I wanted to get a sort of halo in the middle,
and darker round the sides with this lovely blue one.

Mmm. Went a bit mad in the corner down there.
But never fear!


 Wipe it clear!
That’s the great thing about yupo paper.
Squirt of blending solution and go again!


Add a couple of other colours,
let them move around.

Much better.
Few more finishing touches and a little magic -
and it will be just perfick!


Since we’ve got them all out of the cupboard,
we may as well carry on.


and on....


LOVELY.
Made a great start.
Really happy with them.


All things being equal, we should be able to get them to the printers by next week, and in the shops by the end of the month.

If only everything were that straightforward, eh.

Here’s a bloggy offer on the current designer paper pads.
in case you wanted to stock up on them.
If you want to go for all 4, we already had them reduced.
But let’s knock another 25% of that bundle price
to £33.73
 
special price + club member’s discount + BARRRRRGIN!

Love & Hugs,
Barb

    2. My names are Ashley Vivian, Am here to share a testimony on how Dr Raypower helped me. After 1/5 year relationship with my boyfriend, he changed suddenly and stopped contacting me regularly, he would come up with excuses of not seeing me all the time. He stopped answering my calls and my sms and he stopped seeing me regularly. I then started catching him with different girls several times but every time he would say that he love me and that he needed some time to think about our relationship. But cannot stop thinking about him so i decided to go online and i saw so many good talk about this spell caster called Dr Raypower and i contact him and explain my problems to him. He cast a love spell for me which i use and after 24 hours, my boyfriend came back to me and started contacting me regularly and we moved in together after a few months and he was more open to me than before and he started spending more time with me than his friends. We eventually got married and we now have been married happily for 3 years with a son. Ever since Dr Raypower helped me, my partner is very stable, faithful and closer to me than before.You can also contact this spell caster and get your relationship fix Email: urgentspellcast@gmail.com

  2. Looks like you had a good play today, Barbara. Hope it helped in your head. I'm sure your next set of paper pads will be just as brilliant and successful as your first ones. Well, I've been very good, and refraining from buying your paper pads as I have a stash, not as good as yours, that I've hardly used any of. How naughty of you, I feel my resolve slipping fast. And struggling bad with a very scrambled, agitated Asperger's stuff head, so maybe in need of a wee crafty treat. How can I not buy them at this special offer price, and my Diamond discount, and the voucher I have.... Oh well, I'm sure I can find space for them.... Thank you for yet another amazing offer.

    Wee thought. Have you considered selling your papers as digital downloads? Separate market to the real thing, I think, as nothing you print off can compare to the real thing. People could then have the option to resize them digitally though.

    Today's new postive to live by - be someone's reason to smile

    Hope you have a good day tomorrow
    Love Brenda xx

    Looks like you've had a lovely inky play today. The new papers look fantastic. Oh you are a temptress Barbara I ve been good so far and resisted the papers but there you go giving us such a good deal. I must resist, oh go on a little peep won't hurt!! Haha. I do like the way the inks blend together on the yupo paper, you get such interesting patterns.
