Hello, Sorry I've been a little quiet on the blog lately, I have been crafting but I've been keeping a huge secret for quite a few weeks now! If you've seen the current issue of Cardmaking & Papercraft magazine then you already know my secret!! I was amazed, thrilled, over the moon and literally jumping for joy to find out I had won the title of Cardmaker of the Year 2016!!
This is the first year I've actually plucked up courage to enter and almost talked myself out of it, in fact I didn't post my entry off until a couple of days before closing date, talk about cutting it fine. I used some of my favourite +Trimcraft Ltd products to create my entries. As well as the Title, there are prizes with a value of £2,000!! and the chance to design for the 3 magazines which has always been my dream.
I've been asked by a few friends to post about the prizes, so here's what greeted me when the postman arrived (please excuse the hallway - we're redecorating :D) Three super duper crafting machines!! How amazing are those! I have already been testing out the Big Blue and the Scan n Cut (I've just bought some Todo foils & foil dies so I can test out the Todo next.
Lots of dies, some luxury Couture collections with a pack of cardstocks.
and more Couture die sets, these are in presentation boxes with CDs and books to accompany them
and a selection of Tattered Lace dies, 2 come with CD's, a scoring board, some magnetic sheets and cut tidy thingys.
3 big boxes full of Hunkydory and Kanban collections
I'm sure there was more too, like extra accessories for the Scan N Cut machine. The prizes will be put to good use and the eagle eyed will know I've already been using some of these in my recent projects.
I'd like to say thank you to the Editors of +Cardmaking & Papercraft Quick Cards Made Easy and +Papercraft Inspirations and also to my friends for giving me the confidence and persuading me to actually get my entry posted off :D
and thank you for reading this far, I'm always happy to help with any queries or just pop by and say hello!!
