I’ve Got Some News!!

 … can you guess what it is yet?


 … no?




 … still nothing?



 … alright, I’ll tell you …

I’ve been selected to be on my first ever Design Team!!!!!!

[cue crazy screaming, bouncing, scaring my cats, and much merriment]

and who, might you ask, do I have the absolute privilege, delight and honour to be representing?

If you haven’t heard of them already, Gel-á-Tins are an amazing stamping company, with fresh, unique designs, high quality products, countless possibilities, and unbelievably good customer service!!

Let me tell you a story … 

I was browsing the web one day for crafty stuff, and came across a wonderful project with cardstock hearts. They were stamped with a woodgrain effect, but the knots were shaped like hearts!! Adorable!!

Of course, I simply had to have it.

I contacted the blog owner and through that and a bit of my own research came across the lovely company that sold it … but unfortunately there was seemingly no avenue by which to purchase for an international customer. I was gutted.

But I decided to post a message on the company’s FaceBook page, asking if there was any online retailer who could help me. A wonderful lady, Jessica, the owner of the company herself, responded and offered to send me the set directly!!! Well I was of course thrilled and bowled over and immediately accepted her gracious offer. The set was out-of-stock at the time, but I was kept frequently in the loop about when the next shipment would arrive, and was e-mailed the moment they came back in stock, and then again when my beloved set was on its way!!

And when it arrived … *swoon*. 

The most amazing, high quality photopolymer stamp, housed in a metal tin (hence the name), such a wonderful design. But not only that – a complimentary thank you set, and a free little acrylic block too!

It was then I knew I’d stumbled across something truly special. A unique company, who truly cares and values its customers, fantasic products and little unique touches too!! I was sold!!!

So of course when the opportunity came to try out for the Design Team I did so without hesitation. I put my heart and soul into every project, tried my hardest – but ultimately it was my first ever attempt to submit to a DT and I wasn’t going to feel too terrible if I didn’t get in.

I couldn’t have been more thrilled this morning to hear the news that I’d been selected!!!!

I want to take the time to thank the Gel-á-Tins team for choosing me. I cannot wait to show you all just why I’ve gone head-over-heels for this company and their products. Please go check them out on their FaceBook Page, give them some love in the form of a Like, and check out their blog too!!

  1. Wonderful news. I am so happy for you, and know that you will do a fabulous job. They may be small now, but they will be big when all of us start buying their stamps after seeing your fabulous creations.

  2. Yay! Congrats, T! I'd never heard of that company before so I best go and check 'em out seeing as you'll be persuading me to part with my pennies for their products 🙂
