The Old Bag Blog Candy Giveaway - NOW CLOSED

Roll up, roll up....  It's BLOG CANDY TIME again!!!!

It's been quite a while since we had a giveaway and I thought an Old Bag would be a perfect prize.

As I mentioned before, we sold out of the fab Old Bags at the Harrogate show, we did say they were LIMITED EDITIONS but, I saved one:)  I hid it away for this.

It is one of the Game theme collections but there are lots of general bits and bobs in there too.

Here are the contents of the Old Game Bag that the winner will receive, it includes a package packed with paper/card pieces (a glassine sheet and pocket envelope, adage tickets, die cuts, tags etc) plus an 8" x 8" Bingo paper (rolled up in the kraft paper).

There are all sorts of embellishments in the bag that are ideal for configuration boxes that are not just game themed.  Configuration boxes and other things by Tim Holtz can be found on our website HERE

For those with blogs - to enter all you need to do is leave a comment below this post and spread the word on your blog by putting a picture of this blog candy onto your blog sidebar linking it back to this post.

Night Time Challenge and Blog Candy Reminder

Just a quick post this morning as getting ready to leave and set up for the Stamp Magic show in Doncaster tomorrow.

Before we set off I wanted to show my Night Time card that is for our challenge this next fortnight.  The theme was set by Michelle and she certainly challenged some of us on the design team!!  I think the projects the team have made are all awesome, so do pop over for a look, grab some inspiration and join us for the challenge.

Our new website is coming along now, have you visited it yet?  We've loads more to do but really pleased how it's looking...  Here's the new link to bookmark,

Also wanted to remind you that the Old Bag blog candy finishes on Tuesday so if you haven't joined in yet, get a move on :)

I better get a move on now...

Have a great weekend, see you at Doncaster if you are going

Website update

I'm still busy adding products to our new website,, there's almost 2,500 products on there now and still much much more to add, it's going to keep me busy for a while!!

All of the Stampendous Merry and Magical stamps are on there in the new product section, but there are also hundreds of stamps and sets from Woodware in their own section that we didn't have on our old website, I need to add pictures of the Woodware stamps still, that will take me a while I think, but I will keep at it!

We will be holding a prize draw for people who have shopped with us each month, the first draw will be at the end of October.

We've got loads of 20% bargains to launch the new site, with 50% off other items, plus FREE p & p when your order is over £20, so do pop in for a browse.

Have a good weekend

New website - open for shopping!

Our new website is up and running and receiving orders!

Here's a few notes to help with your shopping on our new site that are different....

- You may need to update your bookmark for the website, the new address is

- As we have started the website from scratch, you will need to log in as a new customer

- To launch our new website, we are offering 20% off everything if you spend over £20.  (UK only)

- If the total of your shopping, after the discount is deducted, is over £20, you will also get free P & P!  (UK only)

- You now pay when you place the order.

- You are now able to pay by Paypal.  If you don't have a Paypal account (and don't want one), you are able to pay by debit or credit card by following the instructions (Paypal handle the payment process but you don't need an account, you can remain a guest).

- Everyone that shops with us and spends over £20 will also be entered into a monthly draw, more details about that another time, but I can tell you that the prize for October is unique and something different!

We still have lots of products, pictures and info to add and we are working our way through as quickly as possible but if there is something you want to order that isn't there yet please let us know, and if we can add it, we'll bump it up on the list of products we're adding.

Do keep an eye on the new product section as we will be adding new things there as well as in the main part of the website.  At the moment the whole of the new Stampendous Merry and Bright supplement is there.

There are also other features on the site that we will be using once we have added more products.  One of the great features is that we can have 5 images for each product so we will now be able to show a card or project that we hope will help with inspiration, we also intend to link things up with our You Tube videos too.

Our new online shop is open 24 hours a day, so please feel free to pop in and have a browse around!
