Oriental Inspired Gift Bag Tutorial With Floral Phrases

Today’s oriental style gift bag was sort of done by accident – I hadn’t realised how it looked until I’d finished and looked at it. And HAPPY NEW YEAR by the way!

It’s New Year’s Eve as I write this. Some fireworks have been let off early, I have a glass of wine right next to me and my 8 year old is upstairs determined to stay awake for the strike of 12. I’m writing this blog post thinking perhaps I should be just relaxing or doing something other than working – but this doesn’t feel like work at all. Not even when I’m crafting or filming, so I know I am blessed to have a job that I enjoy so much and to have you guys come along with me on the journey. I even have a sneaky window with Facebook open on it.

So before we get to the video, I will raise my glass and wish you all a wonderful 2017….

Hostess Code – I reward my customers when they shop with me

All orders over £25 (before shipping & handling) & using this month’s Hostess Code at checkout will receive a Hostess Gift from me. If your order is over £150, please do not use this code – you can claim your own Stampin’ Rewards.
All online orders under £150 will collect Stampin’ Rewards (free product) throughout the month. Your order is processed as normal, with it being delivered to your house as usual, so nothing changes there. But, at the end of the month, I close off the code and work out how many people have placed orders and divide the total Stampin’ Rewards between them all, making sure that everyone has exactly the same products.

However, the more people who join the code, the higher the rewards go because everyone is pulling together towards a common goal!

This month’s code can be found at the top right of this page or on the home page
