Year In Review - Favourite Cards of 2013

Hello there, it is quite a tradition in the crafty blog world to review your year of creations. I have done it for the past few years and thought I would do it again this year.

This year I have continued with my CAS style and used minimal papers and embellishments on my cards. My love of stamping has continued and I still love colouring with my Copic Markers too.

Here are some of my favourite cards I have made this year:

I would just like to say a big thank you to Stephanie (Clearly Besotted Stamps) and Tracy (Dies to Die for) for supporting me this year and being amazing Design Team bosses. I am looking forward to continuing the fun with you both in 2014!
And a BIG thank you goes to you, my lovely readers. I have really enjoyed sharing with you and I hope that you will continue to come back in 2014. I am hoping it is going to be a great one!

Year In Review - Favourite Craft Products 2013

Hello there, hope you all had a lovely Christmas (if you celebrate it, if not had a lovely holiday time). Last year I did my favourite products of 2012 video and as I liked making it and got some nice feedback I thought I would do it again this year.

This year I searched for the perfect white cardstock (that was available to easily purchase in the UK) and found that there are some great cardstocks about but my ultimate favourite is still the Papertrey Ink Stampers Select, however, I just love the Bazzill Card Shoppe cardstock too. I also branched out using more Distress Inks which I love and fell in love with the Hero Arts Shadow Inks as well. 

Being on the Clearly Besotted Stamps Design Team I got the chance to play with some amazing products this year and I am so looking forward to what Stephanie has up her sleeve for 2014; I have seen some of it and I know you will LOVE it! I also have really enjoyed the Simon Says Stamp exclusive products, I love their wording stamps and dies especially and I am sure I will be adding more to my collection next year.
I think my ultimate favourite of the year though, is the Wink Of Stella Clear Brush pen - oh my goodness I just LOVE that pen!
For the rest of my favourites of this year please watch the video below ...


What have your favourite craft products been this year? I would love to hear your thoughts, are any of yours the same as mine? Thanks for visiting me today, I will be back tomorrow with my favourite cards of 2013.
