Some good ideas for Christmas and Special Postage Offer at the Papermill

l was lucky enough to received a Papermill make your own calendar this week and one of their artist watercolour sketch pads.   I just had to let you know about them, they are fabulous quality and such good value.  I have also been told there is free postage on orders over £25 from Friday 5pm until 5pm Monday with the code OCT25.

The calendar is something I would not usually think of buying and was pleasantly surprised when it arrived.  The quality of the calendar is excellent,  the pages are heavyweight card not flimsy like other calendars I have come across.  They come in A4 and A3 sizes and if you buy more than one there is a multi buy discount.  A4 calenders are £4.50 each and A3 £5.50 each.

The calendar pages are blank at the top half with the month printed on the bottom half.  The thick pages give you the option of techniques to use when decorating your pages.  It would be ideal for mounting photographs, postcards, pre-made artwork, and also perfect for drawing,  painting and stamping directly onto the page.

Now on to the new artist water colour sketch pad, this would make a fabulous present for a crafty friend  or for youself to use for sketching, journaling etc.  The pages are a fabulous 300gm weight card  perfect for paints, inks and watercolours.  The pads come in three sizes A4, A3 and A2 at £8, £10 and £15.  This one is going to be for me, I will be using it as a techniques book.  When I try out new techniques I use a sketch book this is now rather thick and doesn't close, the artist watercolour sketch pad will be my new techniques book, starting with some stamping and watercolouring, will be playing around with the cover too, a little altered art maybe.

I would certainly reccommend the calendars and sketch pads, they would be ideal Christmas presents for your crafty friends, I will be buying some of the calenders for my grandchildren they will love adding their artwork to each month.  Pop over to the Papermill shop and check them out HERE in the Christmas Goodies section.

I am away at the moment but will be back with some photos of how I have used the calendar and sketchpad, see you soon.

Free P&P... Yippee! What type of watercolour paper is in the pad ? Smooth (Hot pressed), cold pressed or rough ? I have tons of the last 2 but find myself using more and more smooth in conjunction with stamping.

I ordered some calendars a while ago and they've arrived already. My nephews and I are going to work on photos and colouring in images to put each month and give them as Christmas gifts for family members.
