A Sneak Peek – can you guess what it is yet?

30 09 2008

I couldn’t wait any longer …………… here’s a little sneak peek for you.  Hope you enjoy it.


We’re looking for another Design Team Member

28 09 2008

have you got what it takes?

We appreciate that it’s going to be difficult for you to answer this without seeing our designs, but they aren’t ready for release for about 2 weeks (there might be a sneak peek in a few days though) ……….. also if you look in the side bar you will se a link under “Design Team” to Rose-a-petits-pois, which is a whopping big clue to the kind of images that will be available.

If you’re interested, to help us to decide if you might have what we are looking for, all you need to do is submit 3 pieces of work to us (via you blog is fine) using any of the the following stamps~:

  • Sugar Nellie
  • Magnolia
  • Whiff of Joy
  • Spiral Whispers
  • Stampin’ Up
  • Penny Black
  • If possible, we’d like to see:

    • a card
    • a tag
    • and another small project of your choice

    Please comment on this post with a link to your blog so we can check them out.  If you are a Member of UK STampers please also include your username in the comment.  If you don’t have a blog then please send an email with jpeg attachments (there is a link here to the Customer Service email address).

    At the moment we will be able to offer one DT post, but we will also be giving away 2 pieces of blog candy chosen at random ….. so what have you got to lose, you’ve got to be in it to win it!

    Deadline:  10th October 2008


    Heavens to Betsy

    25 09 2008

    I’ve just received two lovely drawings of the first stamps.  I’m hopefully popping over to a friend’s tomorrow (with laptop on me) to get a wee bit of feedback on them, and I think that apart from 2 changes they will be ready to be produced into stamps.

    It’s been a long haul, but we are finally motoring folks.  As soon as I’ve got the final, final drawing I will pop a sneak peek up on her to tease you.

    Wow…..just seen the first of the concept designs

    23 09 2008

    and it was so lovely.  Can’t wait to be able to share it with you, very, very soon.

    Let me see, a clue might be nice……………….  think sparkle and wands     ……………….

    and we have lift off

    20 09 2008


    after a bit of a mixed week moving the cooker into final position, a slip up from a Rubbah Elf and a trip to casulaty, we are as they say, “good to go”.

    I can now also tell you that Genevieve is working on a couple of designs this weeked, which should be ready really soon to be sent to the platemaker.

    Factoid……….the devil is in the detail as they say….

    17 09 2008

    Release date is getting closer by the day, and my excitement is rising.  So, I just thought I would provide you with a couple of factoids:

    • our stamps will be deeply etched unmounted rubber in either red or grey depending on which range
    • made by the Rubbah Elf and his helpers in a secret Kentish location
    • there’ll be a a choice of just the rubber of mounted on cling foam when you purchase
    • we’re happy to make stamps for others (get in touch for details)
    • packed with love and focusing on customer service
    • hopefully we will be in a position early next year to provide a new release every month, but from the start are aiming to provide stamps that will stand alone or co-ordinate with each other 
    • there will be a UK STampers limited edition stamp next year…..so, if you’re not a Member join the fun to be able to get your hands on it.

    A wee blog to read whilst you wait…….
