New Collection

Hi Everybody

So just in case you have forgotten who I am after such a long time with no newsletter ... it's me Christina from Card Making Magic.

I am deeply sorry for my absence but this has not been a good time for me. You may or may not know that my lovely Griff died in November 2018 and that really knocked the wind out of my sails.

I really didn't feel like dong anything and work most of all took a back slide. Hence no emails and no new pages, and not a lot of communication from me at all.

I am not making excuses, just saying how it has been.

I have also had to have surgery on my knee as I found it very hard to walk and getting up and own stairs to my craft room was a real no go.

And then of course at the end of 2019 Covid-19 struck and that pulled the rug from under all of us. 2020 didn't have a whole lot going for it with all the restrictions that where put in place.

Even Christmas was a non starter for most of us as we all had to stay at home and couldn't even meet up with family members.Sadly 2021 hasn't changed a lot yet either.

In one respect I am very lucky as I have not lost any of my family nor have we had any serious illnesses either. If you have please accept my deepest and most sincere condolences. But as they say life goes on and as with all things the crafting world has had some changes too.

I am fortunate to work from home and so I have still been designing collections to bring to you and I know that many of you have bought them and are enjoying playing with them too.

We have brought out several new box shapes and some beautiful lacey corner dies as well as Easel Cards and Channel Cards all of which are available from Craft Stash

I have still been adding lots of my video tutorials to all the new additions and they can be found on my YouTube Channel

If you enjoy them then please give it the "Thumbs Up" to let YouTube know that you enjoy this kind of video.

There is also a bell icon to the "Like" Box and if you click that then you will be notified whenever I bring out a new video.

And don't forget to subscribe to my channel and join the ever growing band of followers.

New Buttons

There has also been a change with Google as they are no longer allowing followers to get email notifications of new blog posts as from July 2021.

So even though you signed up to your favourite blog/websites mailing list you may have to do it all again if they introduce a new button to collect your email address.

And so I am here in this email I am asking you to kindly re submit your email address again in the relevant boxes on both sites

Flowers, Ribbons and Pearls

That way you will always know when new stuff is added and also receive notice of the Friday Freebie each week so that you can add your comment to win the prize on offer. All you need to do is leave me a comment ... to the blog page and NOT on Facebook

It doesn't matter if you have won previously or even where you live .. I am happy to send the pack to you anywhere at my expense.

You will need to come back over the weekend to see if it is your name shown as I have no way to contact you if you are the winner

I cannot chase you up... and you only have 72 hours in which to claim it and if you don't you will lose it to someone else

I have added a Winners Page for you to check for your name and also past winners and you will find that in the side bar on the left.

Thank you for taking the time to read this newsletter and I hope you will continue to visit my pages regularly

Much Love

Christina xx
