1 Crafter’s Companion Enchanted Christmas Shaker Kit
Our best gift ever? Here in the office we were brimming with excitement at the thought of you getting such a stunning shaker kit – we genuinely found it hard not to blurt about it on social media. But now it’s finally here we can all be giddy together. Magical stamps, sparkly sequins, irresistible papers… and all with that Sara Davies’ seal of approval.
2 Free Tattered Lace papers

Mugs of cocoa and mittens, presents and pine trees, excited sledders and gingerbread men – there’s such a variety, and we can’t wait to see what you do with them.
