Plans for 2010 and a GIVEAWAY

To celebrate the launch of our new blog and the forthcoming reveal of our extended design team we have a lovely giveaway for you.


The prize includes a set of 12x12 technique tiles chipboard from Technique Tuesday, a Fancy Pants journaling book, some label stickers by 7 Gypsies, some Kaiser rhinestones and these gorgeous large sized (stamp sheet is 8" x 10") Gypsy Year stamps!

To enter just leave a comment. Why not let us know what plans, resolutions or aims you have for 2010, or suggest a new product line for the ATDML store or even just say hi!
We will select a comment at random and announce the winner on Sunday 3rd January.


Our Plans:

ATDML has been going for nearly five years now and it is always interesting to look back and reflect on what has happened in that time, but even more fun to think about what is still to come. Products have changed, styles and trends have come and gone but we are still in love with papers and scrapping products!

In the next year we plan to continue to carry a wide range of products from an ever increasing number of manufacturers. January sees the Winter CHA releases and like everyone else we will be watching with interest to see who the hot new designers and manufacturers are. We try to make sure that we add a couple of new manufacturers to our existing brands each time as well as continuing to bring you new lines from your favourite manufacturers.

So the plan for the shop is simple and the same as we have had for the past five years - a blend of well known and new faces, creating a balance between carrying a wide range of manufacturers but ensuring that we are able to carry a large selection from key product lines.

In 2010 we know that our customers are keen not only to get their hands on lovely new stash but also to get ideas, inspiration and information. We will be using this blog, the articles section on our website and our page on facebook to offer the additional content that we believe will keep you coming back to visit us throughout 2010. Firmly tied in to this is our new expanded design team. We were sad to see Clare leave in November due to her other commitments but with the new year coming we decided to make some changes for 2010.

The new Design Team line up will feature 7 permanent members and we will continue to include a guest designer each month (look out for more info on how to be a guest designer for ATDML in 2010 in a future post)

The gallery will continue to provide you with monthly inspiration but in addition the DT will be providing regular classes which will be available to download in pdf format, there will be sketches, challenges, product reviews and other projects...

The new members will be revealed here on the blog on January 1st and we hope you will agree that there is a wonderful mixture of styles, and the possibility of a gorgeous array of projects to inspire you!

We look forward to an exciting and creative year in 2010 and hope you do too.

Mel, Jill and the ATDML Team
