Simon Says Stamp STAMPtember Collaboration


I'm sure I don't have to tell you about the month long extravaganza that is the Simon Says Stamp STAMPtember celebrations, but I would like to tell you about a little collaboration that has me giddy with excitement!  We have teamed up with Simon Says Stamp to produce an exclusive stamp set that will only be available directly from SSS...




And here is the exclusive set in it's entirety:
I know the Design Team have been busy creating with this set too, so please check out their blogs if you get a chance :)

Sorry I'm not around much anymore, Dean is frequently away on business these days so I'm juggling a lot of balls at the moment but you'll be pleased to know I'm keeping them all up in the air - just ;) lol

Thank you for popping by and I hope your day is a good one! x

September Release Teaser Time Day 1


Oh my, I cannot believe how quickly the summer has gone by and already I'm dreading the children's return to school next week, I always feel so lonely those first few days!

We have, and are discontinuing a huge number of our products (hence the sale), the reason for this being (and I know you're all sick of me repeating this so I apologise in advance lol) Clearly Besotted is a teeny tiny company run from the study (also teeny tiny!) in my house and because of this, we literally have to make room for new products by discontinuing existing ones.  In addition to this, my sister Jenny will be taking over the day to day running of the business because, as previously mentioned, my husband has joined a new company and his role now involves extensive international travel so I have to free up even more time for the children.  At the moment Jenny pretty much does the lion's share (I just take all the credit!) so I doubt very much any changes will be noticed ;) lol

Okay, enough of my waffle!  I'm hoping you're here because you're interested in what's coming up this month so here is a little taster of the nine new stamp sets (seven with coordinating dies) being released in September...

Arctic Animals 4x6 stamp set:

Believe 4x6 stamp set:

Eye On You mini 3x4 stamp set:

In Stitches: Autumn 4x6 stamp set:

Little Elves 4x6 stamp set:

Little Things mini 3x4 stamp set:

Tiny Trees 4x6 stamp set:

Warm Solutions mini 3x4 stamp set:

Woodland Kisses 4x6 stamp set:

I cannot express in words how happy I am that the magnificent Maureen Plut is back on board with us after her little break - I never considered Moe as having ever left, the door was always well and truly propped open!  Also joining us this month is a huge talent in the crafting world, I literally went on my hands and knees in full begging mode to secure the one and only...Yoonsun Hur of Rejoicing Crafts - yipppeee :D

As always, I hope you will join me, the formidable Design Team and our sensational Guest Designer over the next few days as we showcase the September products :) xxx

Edit: Huge apologies for any disappointment Titta, moving forward, we have no plans to discontinue any more products :)
