Summer Savings: Kanban Lucky Dip Extravaganza!

Kanban Lucky Dip bargain packs
I've been having a major sort out and added lots of new Kanban lucky dip packs - there are some fantastic bargains to be had, with die sheets from less than 20p each. If you're making lots of cards for charity, working with a craft group or just fancy treating yourself, why not check them out!
http://www.foilplay.co.uk/default.aspx?cat=977 
There are four options, most with two pack sizes to choose from:
  • General - 10 die cut toppers for £2.99 or 20 for £4.99;
  • Christmas - 10 die cut toppers for £2.99 or 20 for £4.99;
  • Floral - 10 die cut toppers for £2.99;
  • Shapes & mats - 10 die cut sheets for £1.99 or 20 for £3.49
http://www.foilplay.co.uk/default.aspx?cat=977
The sheets included are all perfect, not seconds and there are no duplicates within individual packs. If you buy more than one, I'll include as much variety as possible. I've included pictures in the listings for each option, to give you a good idea of the types of sheet likely to be included.

If you aren't keen on the surprise element of the lucky dip, then you might like to check out the bulk buy bargains section of the site instead. There are still big savings to be had with die cut Kanban sheets from 35p each, when you buy multiples of selected sheets.

DT inspiration - Christmas Cuties from Jane

Jane made this gorgeous cute card using Buzzcraft Fairy Doodles die cut pyramage, rub on foils and double sided peel off stickers. More details of how she created the project are on her blog, Onions and Paper. Thank you, Jane!
The die cut sheet that Jane used for the card topper & greeting is below, Fairy Doodles Christmas 416. Fairy Doodles die cut pyramage is a bargain at only 49p for each A4 sheet if you buy them individually, or from as little as 25p a sheet if you buy in bulk - well worth considering if you have a craft club or are making lots of cards for charity.
