A few months ago I was given a pack of “Crafty Bob’s A4 Premium Gloss Craft Paper 200gsm Pack of 20” to try out and put through its paces, including cutting it using my new Silhouette Cameo digital cutting machine. I wrote two blog posts to show everybody the results I had, both comparing the print to the original design as well as looking at how well it cut out. You may remember that I was impressed with both the quality of the printing and how well it cut, and I’ve cut both with a scissors and my Cameo by now. I’ve even been back and ordered two further packs myself since then.
You may be wondering why I’m mentioning this today!
Well in the latest mailer, E-mailed out from CUP HQ today, there is the statement
“Crafty Bob wants you to try out his paper because
he knows once you have tried it you will be back for more.”
Go on – click on the link to the paper at the top of this post to see what price it’s being sold at over this weekend!
Can you believe that price?!
(The offer is subject to one pack per customer, and you do have to pay P & P to wherever you live, but I believe that they do ship worldwide.)
CUP Mailer – A copy of the mailer sent out today can be seen by clicking – > here. In addition to the news about the very special price on Crafty Bob’s Paper for this weekend you’ll also see lots of lovely designs you can buy via craftsUprint to use in your crafting.
CUP April Card-making Competition – The mailer also includes the following statement:
“Last Call for the The April Competition – Some fantastic entries already!
Last entry is Midnight 22nd April and Voting will open on Monday afternoon.
The upload link is in your Control Panel – Good luck to all entrants!!! ”
The theme this month is a Father’s Day card using any design you’ve bought via craftsUprint. And the Control Panel mentioned is the one on the craftsUprint site that every customer has where they can download designs bought, view older orders, have a go on the Tombola each time an order is placed, etc. The competition details can be seen -> here.
I’ve uploaded my entry by now, but in the spirit of the competition, I’m not going to put my entry on my blog until after the end of the voting to make sure my card is anonymous. Nor have I entered using a card I’ve previously uploaded to CUP as a Registered Crafter. Of course people are free to make a guess at which is my card – guessing who’s made which of the entries, once they are put up for us to see and vote, is half the fun, especially when the names go up at the end of the voting and you can see if you were right about any entry.
You can see the cards Ive made using design sheets from CUP in my Crafter Showcase Area on Craftsuprint.com – here
