Pretty Things - Disclosure

This is a resource list of all the companies whose items are the ones I choose to purchase to use on my cards and other projects.  I buy their product because it is quality and will give you a beautiful result every time you use it in your own designs.

I am not affiliated to these companies, so I don't get paid to recommend them.  I simply add them because their items are my favorites  and their service is second to none.

On many occasions, when I have surplus items, I am happy to share them with you in the form of "Give Aways" These will be items that I have bought, or that have been donated to me for the purpose of giving it  away for some one else to make use of

People who visit my blog and website also offer me items, that they no longer use, to add to give aways and I am happy to pass them on.

Sometimes companies offer me product to use in my work and I do accept and keep the products that they send to me.  I  use the items and if they are quality I will tell you about them. I would never tell you some thing was good if it was not.
 Honesty is the best policy.

I am a UK Ambassador for Spellbinders and part of the design teams for other companies and they send me product to use in my card making.

I am also part of the Craft Stash Design Team and it's my job to tell you about their on line shop to supply quality crafting items at affordable prices.  And as their representative they supply me with Apple Blossom stamps and dies and payment for the work that I do.

 I have also joined some of their Affiliation Schemes which means that I will receive a small payment from them for any thing that you buy but at no added cost to yourself

Part of this work is to bring to you each month ideas that you can try using the gifts that come free with some major crafting magazines. The magazines are full of ideas, instructions, tips and tricks that are sure to interest you as a card maker plus the free gift is a useful addition to expand your own crafting stash

But the views and opinions expressed in this,  my personal blog,  are purely mine based on my findings. I am not prompted or asked to say anything by them.

  I am happy if you are inspired by my work and for you to recreate my ideas but please don't  use any of  the photos of  my cards to enter competitions as they are copyrighted to me

Clicking the titles will take you to their pages to browse and see what you like and I have added in if they are UK or USA to help you further so please choose the appropriate one for where you live. You will need to check for yourself if they ship to your country, and the cost... happy crafting

  1. Have been having fun looking at some of these sites, especially 'how to' on 'Make it Crafty'. Thanks Christina.

  2. Thank you for the new Pretty Things section.
    This make things really easy for us who follow your work.

  3. Thanks for sharing Christina. It's nice to know these companies have products you use often and would recommend based on the quality. I have ordered things in the past online and not been too happy with the product(s) received.

  4. Thank you so much for your posts. I took a look and see lots of goodies I could use also. May I please ask? The card at the top right side of your blog under Tuesday Tutorials. How did you make that card. I looked all over your posts and did not find a listing of what die you used for it. It is beautiful and so original, set apart. Could you please share? Or if you already did where might I find it?

  5. Hi Christina, thank you so much that is a great list.
