CraftsUPrint Treasure Chest Bonus packs project, Vault and Friday Freebie

Some of you may have seen me post previously about the Treasure Chest items I got free with one of my  cut file orders. CraftsUPrint are actually mailing these FREE when you order over £15 ( currently on offer at £10 ) worth of files or card kits.  I have to be honest I wasn’t expecting them to be that great quality, cmon..it’s free right  lol.  But when they arrived I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the  sheets..AND the size.  I wasn’t expecting full A4 sheets either.. 15 of them.. and you get to choose the designs you want.

If you missed  my previous post, you can find details below

My Treasure Chest Freebies arrived…. impressed !




Well last night I finally had a moment to sit and play with them… and I made my son some fridge magnets for his word wall.. which incidentally is one side of my upright freezer lol. It’s situated near the dining room table so always in view of him when he is eating or playing.. mommy’s subtle way of keeping him learning no matter what he is doing.










He spends a lot of time playing with Playdoh or coloring etc at the table.. and of course it’s a great way for him to “earn ” snacks during the day.  If you missed previous posts about the Cohas Magnetic sheets (formerly known as ZiggyBoard) I use to make his  wall.. I added some of them to some cheap wood cut circles and some of them I just added the Magnetic strip straight to the back of them.
Now the link is to the commercial product, what I am actually using is what are referred to as “tails” and “seconds” so anyone who is interested in buying some of these for projects, let me know. These are perfect for making magnets, and letter walls and using as small magnetic chalkboards. I have allsorts of projects on the blog using this stuff and I love it (search magnet, or Ziggy on the blog). It cuts like a dream on my Cricut Explore, by hand, my paper cutter, My Sizzix Big Shot… so very versatile and lots of fun to be had. I also used it to hang my metal dies for easy grabbing.. LOVE this stuff.



Well CraftsUPrint also just added a new video about the treasure chest, so I figured I would add that in for anyone interested.  If you have kids who like to craft, or you want some fun card or project toppers.. check them out.  I grab a set every time I buy new cutfiles.. in fact, I’m off to get more when I finish up this post as I see some fun new cut files I need to grab.  These are great for  projects with my 4 year old too as the Treasure Chest also includes sticker sheets.

They have added in lots of new items too, check out the contents of the current Treasure Chest right now not only can you get access to the treasure chest with a £10 order, you also get access to the vault for 24 hours.. and that is filled with freebies too. Lots of great card kits.. and they are all yours.. you have 24 hours to grab them for free.

Right now.. these are part of the vault collection.. which includes card kits, toppers and digital papers

My Treasure Chest Freebies arrived…. impressed !

Last month I picked up some extra freebies when I got my latest batch of CraftsUPrint cut files. They have an offer that allows you to choose 15….yes FIFTEEN freebies from the Treasure Chest when you spend £15 or more. Well actually.. guess what?  I just saw they made it even better, it’s now available if you spend £10 or more.  I am  not sure how long that extra offer is available…. so check it  out.

Now to be fair; not only were they offering these freebies, but since it was a phsyical product.. they also offered FREE SHIPPING. Shipping is a huge roadblock for a lot of International buyers… so WOOT for Free Shipping.

Well they arrived this past week, but I confess… I hadn’t checked my mail for a few day..* cough a week lol.

I had two packs in the mail, from two separate orders….so 30 sheets in total. Now I will be honest, I wasn’t really expecting it to be anything great….  It’s a freebie …. right!   Well I was pleasantly surprised; not only were the sheets all full A4 sheets, the quality is not half bad.  I just grabbed them thinking my 4 year old might have fun with them… but I might have to snag a few of these for myself lol.

You get to choose the 15 sheets you want to, it’s not just a random pick they send you. There was a mix of  no cut Decoupage sheets and sticker sheets, so I grabbed a bit of both.
The designs are pretty cute, so if you make “cute” cards… you will like these.  

Cute critters; bears, badgers and hedgehogs and some of them come with various gold foiled sentiments too.  I picked up a few humorous  sheets too and kids decoupage designs..like elephants, dragons and knights..  then I grabbed some sticker sheets.  A really nice mix of designs to add to the stash for me and the lil guy.

For a bonus Freebie… I am suitably impressed and would definitely grab more if the  offer is still on when I grab more cut files.  You can check out the current Treasure Chest offerings here Treasure Chest

CraftsUPrint Freebie Friday – 1 for the Journal Makers?

cupdecember
The Crafty Jaguar 8×8 Ultimate Organiser/Journal for Crafters by Janice McFarlane  is the new Freebie Friday at CraftsUPrint. WOWSER..what a kit huh…it’s HUGE.

“This is a massive kit, and not everything (extra embellishments, bookmarks etc) is included in the preview photo. I’ve tried to include pages in this kit that I think would be useful to crafter’s especially those who have a client list and attend craft fairs etc. There is lots of room for ideas, inspiration, and hand little pockets on the dividers, as well as some cheeky little crafty quotes on some of the pages. What you include is up to you, and how many pages you print out is also up to you. I am sure this will be invaluable to the serious crafter as well as making a fantastic gift for someone.

The Crafty Jaguar Organiser has a lovely faux leather and fur texture with stitched edges.

OOh Christmas is coming….hurry hurry

printed

I know you all must be as crazy busy as I am right now with last minute gifts and cards, getting ready for the big day with family and friends.
I’ve been busy making cracker boxes for the little guys grandparent/great grandparent gifts, he stamped images for the candles and  stuck clear decal stickers on the bath salts jars.

I’ve been printing out coloring sheets for me to practice on over the coming months.  I printed a tonne of practice sheets… KennyK, Bugaboostamps and  a bunch of botanical images and various other images from other digi artists in my collection.   Really looking forward to getting some time to color and play with my pen sets and paints this winter.

jack_boardI’ve also been working on some Jack Skellington project for  hubby who is a huge Nightmare before Christmas fan…. of course this one was hijacked by the lil guy who also loves the movie.  I bought some  printables  and as soon as he saw them all I heard was …. “Mommy it’s Oogie Boogie and Jack ”  “Mommy print this, I stick that on…”  It’s another chalkboard vinyl project using the Ziggyboard sheets in a 12×12 scrapbookers frame.  It’s still in progress, but this is how it is looking so far.  The lil man had a blast putting stickers on this frame…

I actually had a couple of different “Jack” projects in mind for him to make for daddy…. but that is cool. Hubby will love the fact lil man helped make this one too.  I’ll share proper pics of those later when they are finished.

We still have coasters to stamp for all the grandpas and great grandpas and more frames to decorate… busy, busy times.

Hope everyone is keeping well..  may you all have a fantastic Christmas, or holiday season.

Reminder:  We have exclusive coupons available for CraftingAbility.com and ZiggyBoard.com which expire on the 31st.

…and if you haven’t noticed the banner on the right…  the new KennyK shop is up and running with digi and clear stamps and has a 30% off your first purchase available too.
