A little bit about me and the products I use (Disclosure).

I have been papercrafting for many years. Over the years I have used many different products manufactured by many different companies. This has led to me discarding some and becoming almost addicted to others!
The short story is - if you see me endorsing and advertising a particular brand or product I may very well be supplied with it directly from the manufacturers but this will only be the case because I was already 100% impressed with it and using it on most of my projects.

For the record...
I am a Content Creator for Tonic Studios and occasionally demo for them too so I am supplied with Tonic products.

I am on an affiliate programme with Tonic Studios so if I add my affiliate links to a product it means that I earn a small commission from any purchases made using them. This, however, is at no extra cost to you.

I am also an Amazon Affiliate (USA) and as an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases on amazon.com

The companies/ brands from which I earn commissions from affiliate programmes (on qualifying purchases) are
Tonic Studios (UK and USA )

Another brand with which I am proud to be associated is Trimcraft. I have been using Trimcraft products for many years and if you have  look back through my projects you'll quickly notice my love of their papers - especially their First Editions range. Trimcraft supply me with their products for my demos and for sample making.

There are some other brands and products which I am supplied with for promotional purposes (including demoing) such as

Letraset Promarkers, Aquamarkers and Flexmarkers - I absolutely love them!

Derwent Pencils and other products - top class!!

Modge Podge and other Plaid products - Mod Podge Rocks!!

Sculpey - this has been an addiction for years.

Edding - (May 2017) this is a new venture for me. I was invited to a demo on these fabulous pens and was then sent various different types of them to try. I'm just a beginner but am loving them already!

Pebeo - (May 2019) Another new venture. I've been dabbling with some Pebeo products for a while and fell in love! So privileged now to be using them for sample making and demonstrations. Mixed media with Pebeo is captivating.

elements - I have been using this brand of art materials for a few years and I am supplied with it for retail and trade demos as well as for videos and samples. 

Craft Stash - (Nov 2020) I do commissions for Die Cutting Essentials, Creative Stamping and Simply Cards and Papercraft magazines so I create blog posts and Facebook posts to advertise these.

I am now on an affiliate programme with Craft Stash so if I add my affiliate links to a product it means that I earn a small commission from any purchases made using them. This, however, is at no extra cost to you.
