I can really understand why you are so passionate and enthusiast about your products. They are truly remarkable, stunning and so inspiring. I find myself going to bed and not being Able to sleep because I'm conjuring up ways to use all the products I've bought recently including the Gemini. The ultimate, about 20 create a card dies and loads of other stuff. Thank you so much for your innovation and creativity and I'm so excited to see you on launch night!❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️

    I have really enjoyed the blog hop. It was a brilliant idea and I have added a few more crafters to follow through Bloglovin'!! The new collection looks fabulous. But all Sara's Collections are amazing. I love how you can mix n match with them. I'll be watching at the launch for more inspiration. I do love how with Sara's Collections there are lots of inspiration through Sara herself on the Crafter's Compaion Blog, the Design Team and also though the Crafter's Companion Magazine. You make it very easy to use your products. xxx

    The tree die is my favourite as I could cut out duplicates to use swirls from the design to further embellish a Christmas tree card using the same design base. In truth I love the whole range as it's well though out, modern and stylish. The colour scheme is bang up to date and refreshing. I've had fun hoping. Thank you x

    Fabulous new collection and I've enjoyed visiting so many new blogs. This tree die is definitely on the "must have" list (and I suspect it won't be there on it's own for long). Thanks for the tutorial, can't wait for the launch!

    Sara, you've outdone yourself, as always! Your line of dies is one of my favorites along with all the Spectrum Noir items! I missed out on the Gemini on HSN but am daily watching in case it returns! It would be hard to pick just one of these dies, so I'm crossing my fingers and saying a prayer to win it all! Good luck to everyone! I live in the USA so don't have Hochanda but would still like to be in the drawing! Your design team is very talented! Beautiful representation of your products!

    That was a fabulous blog hop. I have added so many Crafters Companion goodies onto my Pinterest wish list that I have had to start a new board just for Crafters Companion. I have loved seeing the gorgeous blue, silver and white projects created with Sara's new range as well as other projects using your dies supplies and tools. I am worn out from all the Pinning I had to do!
    Thank you for the blog hop, wonderful beautiful and great inspirations, and for all your hard work too Karen x
