If it was something I like then the liquitex inks but something new would have to be those Montana pens :o)

Sian said...

Amazing design team - very exciting! :) In my Christmas stocking I'd definitely have to ask for Goat Monster (Stampotique), more Anna Debrowska-Pecocka papers for 7 Dots Studio (Domestic Goddess, Wonderland AND Dreamer!!!) and then if I were being cheeky I'd ask for Claudine Hellmuth paints specifically teal and white in the large sizes as I only have the minis :)

what caught my eye LOL.. how long have we got?

ok in particular I was just saying to my friend how much i liked the prima resin cherub ornaments and the junkyard finds (the bulbs with words)... see I narrowed it down but i like all altered art supplies.

(PS.. awesome team and congratulations ladies. this will be a blog worth watching. will add it to my blog roll on my side bar to keep me informed of all new posts. and am liking the facebook page now too. very glad I found you through my friends posts on facebook...

OOh love, love, love your website......will be visiting again after I see what Santa has left me in my very, very large Stocking....Anything Donna Downey....♥♥♥ her stuff! I'll see you soon....S x Fantastic DT by the way, I can't wait to see what they come up with. X

Bernice Hopper said...

You sell such fabulous stuff so it's been hard to make a decision. But I think probably the Golden Fluid Acrylic Paint and the iridescent ones look fabulous.

Sarah said...

Yay! it's letting me comment now :)

So - a bit of window shopping through your store later - and I have a wish list as long as my arm :)

but if I had to pick one thing that I wish was in my christmas stocking on the big day, then it would be the corrugated iron background stamp from Darkroom Door....I LOVE it!

majdela said...

a lovely shop, a wonderful choice. Rock out. I'd love to Teresa Collins Now & Then Collection Pack, Montana marker, Dimensional Punch - Dahlia, Distresser Paper Tim Holtz, Stampotique Originals - Lollypop, Perfect Pearls Aged Patina Kit. I'm cheeky?

Sheetal Ahlawat said...

Congratulations to the design team. Hope to see many super inspirations in the coming days. I am not much of a crafter but I like to browse around the blogland looking at the beautiful creations.
In your store, I liked Prima Wood Clocks & Tickets - Rosarian. I am in love with wooden button these days :)
I think I haven't seen them on any other site.

Muszelia said...

You have many great things in your store, but for me the greatest are stamps... It's difficult to choose just one, but if I have to - nr 1 is Darkroom Door Stamp Set - Seashells, next 1920's Chic or Full Bloom Vol 2 and so on all collection of Darkroom Door Stamp :)
But Santa doesn't have such roomy sack :D

Audrey said...

Yes! a new DT, love new inspiration!
i love to journal so a new Art Journal is always welcome!
Can't wait to see more of you all!!

Sue said...

Wow what a fabulous design team, I would like them in my stocking then they can share their crafting secrets, and the TH seasonal silhouette stamps would also be my choice x

Laura said...

I'd like some matte medium in my stocking please! And if Father Christmas decides I have been a good crafter and there is room for more in my stocking I'd also like some modelling paste.
Looks like you have a stonkingly good CDT!

Vicky Hibbs said...

Well I would like pretty much the entire shop hehe! If I have to narrow it down then the new Hero Arts neon ink pads; and then the Tim Holtz idea-ology trees and mini lantern so I could make a little village snow scene.....

OOOOoooh how fab. I would love to see in my Christmas stocking the Tim Holtz 'wooden' yes I did day wooden, snowman blueprint stamp. I absolutely love wooden stamps, hence my love for Stampotique and if goat monster was to slip in there too I wouldn't be disappointed, but I haven't seen any T!mmy stamps of the wooden variety for ages - nice touch.

May have to pop back for one or two of those with my Christmas money!!!

Thanks for the chance to win.

Artyjen said...

Well I'd be very happy to have some Donna Downey stamps in my stocking....if I can't have what I really want to find in my stocking!!! ROFL
Great design team look forward to popping by on a regular basis.

zanka12 said...

I'm so glad I found this place! your works are amazing... I already have way too much papers, but I wouldn't resist new Graphic45collections: Ladies Diary or Kraft reflections. A mask from Prima Masks - 545604 is also on my wish list ;)

Alison said...

What a fantastic team, can't wait to see more of their creations here!
Those Donna Downey Empowered Words stamps would definitely be on my Christmas list! A fab store!

fatmonica said...

Wow!Thanks for the chance to win this fab candy!If I could chose I'd have a stocking full of Stampotique but I don't want to be greedy so I'd settle for Old Timey Frog,Carrot and Mela. A few Posca pens would round it off nicely!

Ginger said...

great design team. A set of the water soluble crayons are on my wish list for santa, and can they be delivered by Johnny Depp in a santa costume please. x

*Nora* said...

I'd love the 7dots domestic goddess line as well as donna downey products for the new year! Thanks for the chance to win!

Allycat x said...

Well done Vicki on a great DT, looking forward to their inspiration :) Thank you for celebrating with a giveaway too! I like the idea of finding a crafty Christmas stocking, maybe with a Teal Golden Fluid Paint, some Derwent Inktense Pencils & a couple of Stampotique stamps - Carrot & Giant Shroom (just to feed my current addiction!) inside!
Can you create spare time too please to play? Lol

suzieq23 said...

I am guessing I dont live in the "EU" wherever that is? but I love that you sell Seven Dots collections because they are so hard to get here in the US. I just love all the collections, so any one of them showing up in my stocking would be wonderful.

Karen said...

Fabulous line up you have here :D Crikey...do I have to choose? So many lovely things in your shop!!!!! If I could choose just one thing then it would have to be Christy Tomlinson SHE-art Stamp - SHE was a Daughter! Its been on my wish list forever...in fact I am taking the plunge and am going to get her now!!!! mmmmm.....that leaves me with a wish still doesn't it? Then it would have to be some of those Montana pens to try as they are new to me!!! Thank you for the fun xxx

leigh11 said...

If i could have anything in my stocking it would have to be Dylusions spray inks and Stamps--they are all to die for :)

Fantastic DT

Alison said...

Wow what a great blog it will be a pleasure to follow.
In my Christmas stocking I would like some tim holtz destress inks and the Teresa Collins new paper x

butterfly said...

Wow, what a DT - some I know and already love, and others I'm looking forward to getting to know better!

If I got even half of what I would like, my Christmas stocking would already be bulging at the seams, but if I were going to squeeze in a bit more: I've heard so much about the Donna Downey stamps - would love to have a play with them, and the Graphic 45 ABC Primer stamp sets have been on my wishlist for ages!!

Congratulations on your brand new creative blog - it's going to be fabulous by the look of it.

Marianne/skorpionen said...

I would love to fine the stamp by Donna Downey "Donna Downey Hollyhocks" in my stocking!

Jennie Atkinson said...

Ive just been catching up with the Design Team blog posts (and their blogs!) - congratulations everyone! I am really looking forward to seeing all your creations.

How can I choose just ONE item from such a fabulous shop .... but ... it would have to be the Donna Downey Empowered Wordsd Stamps - they say so much!

Have a lovely Christmas everyone x

Alan Scott said...

What a fab site... I have just discovered the wonderful world of Altered Art. I have spent my crafting time so fare in the card making world. However after a visit to a show and seeing Hel's working l was totally bowed over and my crafting world was turned upside down.
I look forward to being a avid follower of this exciting blog for ideas and seeing what creative gifts the D.T are offering to us.
The gift l would most like is something simple The Crafters Workshop 12x12 - Chickenwire Reversed. We have to start somewhere building up our supply of masks. To help us explore and take our Inks and paints to another level.
Thank you and can l wish everyone a wonderful holiday time and a very big creative 2013.

Helen said...

loving the work from the design team :) would love some darkroom background stamps, graphic 45 easel album and some journalling pens in my christmas stocking.

Rae said...

Oh wow what a fab bundle of blog candy. It sure would be a happy new year if that was heading my way. I know some of the items are already in my stocking. I can't find just one item i would love but loads, it would have to be one huge stocking! I love everything Glitz & i am a massive Prima addict. I love donna downeys blog and i love that you stock her line and products like Golden & Unity stamps. Its great to see a shop selling 'different' brands & stash which I love. Thanks for a chance to win. Have a happy xmas & new year

Nix said...

Welcome to the new DT team! Can't wait to see what you produce. Some big hopes from your samples and blogs!


Dear A Sprinkle of Imagination Christmas Fairies...

The following have caught my eye and I will unashamedly be pointing things out, to my other half who is a last minute (or later) christmas shopper, which would be perfect for my stocking....

Polka dot washi tapes
Jenni bowlin vintage decks
Sakura pigma microns 0.2 black
Tattered angles chalkboard in seven seas (love this teal colour, is my festive colour of choice this year!)
Stamps! Stamps! Stamps! Love them all!

In the meantime I hope to win the blog candy stash as my christmas present from my other half usually arrives mid-end jan (so he can shop in the jan sales!)

Have a cool yule/warm winter wishes/happy christmas!

Mole said...

What would I like in my stocking? Where to start!!! I think the Dylusion Word stamps are just brilliant and I'd be delighted to get anything from the set. I love a bit of bling too, so anything 'sparkly' would get my vote, along with anything from Glimmer Mists family. The chalkboard colours are gorgeous.

Mole said...

By the way, you have an amazing DT! I shall be following their work with interest ....

Edel said...

Great candy, dear! Thanx a lot for a chance to win!))
i`ll be happy to find any srapbooking stuff))))))

Yolanda said...

A great design team, look forward to seeing what they will create. There so much in your shop that I would love, stamps Tim Holtz and Dylusions, I've started art journaling and need some more paints for that, oohh and I love the graphic 45 papers.

brendon said...

Such a nice site, store and a design team! I have added it to the list of my scrap-inspirations ^_^

The range of the store is so rich that one christmas stocking would not suffice! I tried to choose the most desired things, they are: 7 Dots Studio paper (all collections are great, especially "Wonderland"), Quickie Glue Pen (i have one and find it very helpful), Tim Holtz Idea-ology embellishments (they all are unique) and Pearlescent Acrylic Inks (my dream is to study to use such Inks in perls creation).

Thank you for a chance!

с удовольствием присоединяюсь...

ionabunny said...

Hi, thanks for the chance to win. What a fab prize. I really thought that I was going to say I would love a selection of Adirondack Alcohol Inks in my stocking because I have seen some wonderful projects with these and am itching to try them myself, but then I stumbled on The Crafters Workshop Masks, Peacock is delicious and the Flames, wow, but them I found the Prima masks, Branch is so beautiful, Butterfly is dreamy and OMG the possibilities for 882020!! more Prima? Oh, wow those wooden clock embellishments and.... My stocking must be overfilled by now. What a fabulous site. So glad I found you but it will take some time to look around. What a nice time I shall have. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you. I am following and looking forward to seeing what your fabulous design team come up with in 2013.

Asia King (aka Joanna K) said...

Congratulations to the new design team - well done!!! I absolutely adore the Melt Art Texture Treads, what a fantastic product!
Thank you for a chance to win :) xx

Dee said...

Great blog and very lovely blog candy. I'd ave to ask for the Dr. Ph. Martin's Bombay India Inks in my stocking - how I would love a set of those.

Jayne said...

To be honest I don't know where to start. I think I'd ask if you could tell me what I'd need to get started and go from there. I love Art Journalling but don't know where to start with the messy stuff :), so winning the blog candy would be a good place to start I reckon :)

gemma maggs said...

Congratulations on your design team,they look fabulous. I would love too find all of the stampotique stamps, and some donna Downey stencils in my stocking. They're just amazing.
I love your blog and website they're both so inspirational. Thanks for this chance to win some amazing things xx

Wrightboysmum said...

Loved it all but the Jenni Bowlin Kraft Tags and Printed tags are my favourite. They'll be good on all manner of projects.
Looking forward to seeing the DT in action.

Kirsti said...

Ooh I really like the Jenni Bowlin and Stampotique stamps and the Picked Raspberry distress stain..in fact I like most of it...too much to choose from!!!

Looking forward to seeing what the DT come up with in the coming year...

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you..xxx

Psychodiva said...

I love anything that feeds my creativity- but I am especially addicted to making books and journals like the Dylusions ones- I adore decorating them in new ways and finding new techniques so I'm looking forward to learning from your design team!!

Psychodiva said...

I love doing anything creative and finding things that feed my imagination, but i am seriously addicted to making books and journals so the Dylusions ones are perfect, with anything metal to use on them :) I'm loking forward to my imagination being fed by the Design team :)

Kate Blair said...

In my stocking I would like to find the prima butterly mask
