New in the Shop: Stamps, Cards & Badges

After a quiet couple of months, I have so many new products coming to my shops! I’ll share more of my plans next week but here’s what’s new in store.

Bumblebee & Ladybird Polymer Stamps

My mum requested a Bumblebee stamp so I decided to add Ladybird as well for a fun garden-themed set. You can buy them individually, as a set or pick and mix your favourites from my entire range.  I’ve had a few stamp requests recently so look out for more, possibly in time for Christmas.

Volcano Cards

I’m not sure if everyone loves my new Volcano character quite as much as I do but I thought he’d make a cute card. Since he’s erupting with excitement, this card is perfect for birthdays and congratulations. Remember you can always pick and mix any 2 cards for £3.50.

Volcano Badges

I’ve also added him as my newest seasonal badge. I’m enjoying adding to my badge range without the extra admin of keeping a whole badge set in stock. Volcano joins Sakura, Lucky Clover, Orange, Donut and Peach this year. Not all are listed in my pick and mix offer but just ask!

Coming soon: 10 year anniversary surprise boxes, two new enamel pins, two new limited edition Little Ghost brooches and more!
