Ingrid here with some super-exciting news! 

You may or may not know that I won the Card Designer 2014 with the Simply Cards & Papercraft magazine! I won over £1000 worth of craft goodies and I am now very fortunate to be a part of the design team for the magazine! And now the exciting news... :)

You know I like to share and to celebrate my win I'd like one lucky person to try out some of the crafty goodies I won. I decided to handpick a few of the gorgeous papers and other lovely bits and bobs. I was going through it all and the bundle got heavier and heavier.. I've taken a few pics for you. I might add a few other little things to play with, I want you to have fun! 

Here are some pics for you...

DCWV 12 x 12 pattern papers... so gorgeous! It was so hard to pick!

DCWV specialty papers (corrugated, burlap, canvas, cork...) & DCWV cards, each with an envelope

Marianne Designs & Craft Asylum papers

Nicely bundled up together...
