Goodies!!!

Emma asked for volunteers to road test some new Papermania products due to go on sale in September. Whoohooo I was lucky enough to get some freebies in the post which arrived yesterday! How exciting!



















There's a scalloped circle chipboard album......an acrylic block..... a heart punch and some stunning glittery ribbons. Now the delivery must have come in the morning yesterday when I was out and a neighbour took the parcel in for me so I didn't actually get my clammy hands on these goodies until last night at around 8.45pm! However, I've already used the acrylic block and the heart punch.

I have 2 acrylic blocks already.....a large one and a slender long one. Can I find them? Noooooooo! They have been spirited away by some evil pixie! For the last week or so I have been sticking stamps onto one of the cutting plates of my cuttlebug! I kid you not....and it doesn't work great when you do that I can tell you. I really really really need to have a good sort out of my stash so that I know where everything is again. I must have loads of stuff I've forgotten about.

Anyway back to the job in hand....the Papermania acrylic block. I was sooooo happy to have it I actually hugged it (again.....I kid you not!) and it is fab! I stamped the arrow of the DCM card (a bit lower down my blog) with it. It's a great size too....not too big and not too small. I'm not sure what they will retail at but I heartily recommend it!

I also used the heart punch last night to punch the heart that is over the heads of the Sarah Kay stamp (again on the DCM card). It gave a very crisp cut so again I am very impressed (and it's pink too - what more can a gal ask for?? lol). As I only own 3 punches I think this will come in very handy for me and may well get a lot of use hehehe.

I'll review the other products as and when I use them which will be soon as I have a week off work :o) I will say that the ribbons are going to go PERFECT with the Christmas download from Funky Hand....Funky Little Christmas. The colours are perfect!
