I first discovered Chamby and Cor over on the lovely Mathilde heart Manech blog, where the lovely Lisa had written a blog post about creating your own Washi Tape Christmas Cards. I have been a fan of washi tape for quite some time now so to find a British shop online that has some amazing designs is a real find. And not only that, but it also has lots of other amazing stationery goods worth buying, like bakers twine and pretty paper bags.
This is my favourite washi tape in the shop. I’m loving mustard colours at the moment and the flowers are really pretty and delicate. The thing I love about washi tape is that it is so versatile. You can use it in crafting, packaging and even when you’re doing DIY. If I get any spending money for Christmas, you can be sure I’m heading right here to indulge!
I’ve been working pretty hard of late, and I’ll let you know what on when everything is ready. But I thought that I needed a bit of a treat. So when I saw that the lovely Gabrielle was giving away a free gift with every purchase from her shop The Green Gables to celebrate the first anniversary of working for herself, I knew where to go.
I’ve bought a few things from The Green Gables in the past. I really like what Gabrielle does and the colours that she uses so this was the pefect opportunity.
I bought some of the decorative sticky tape because it looks so nice on parcels. Whether I’m posting something to my mum or a customer, I’m going to use this! I also wanted a set of the cards. I love these images so much. I already have the typewriter on a notebook but wanted some of the others too. I’m going to put some up in my study but some I’ll use to send to friends.
My free gift was the lovely flowers notebook. As a stationary geek, I know you can never have too many notebooks. And I needed a new lighter one to carry around with me all the time – You never know when inspiration might strike!
Congratulations Gabrielle on producing such lovely products & thank you so much for my free gift! You know I’ll be back – already have my eye on iPhone cover! x
