Ellison alphabets and other dies

Post by Guest on Sun 11 Jan 2009 - 11:36

Don't know if anyone is interested, but Ellison (www.ellisondesign.co.uk) have a fantastic sale on at the moment. I have just bought a complete alphabet for £23 instead of £89!!! How's that for a discount - that's 35 dies, lower and upper case. I already have three alphabets, but there are always others I want of course and this was such a good bargain it would have been rude not to buy one. Managed to get one Mia has been looking for (at a good price) for about 18 months, so I am top-mumty today!!!

Which alphabets do you recommend Patty? I only have the one and would like another. Maybe smaller to go on cards.

Well the most useful of all is, I think, SCRIPT which has the letters (quite small) and then a "shadow" to go behind so you can do two different colours, etc. I also have ROUND TABLE which is a big bold and wonderful one for titles, etc. and also Curlie Girlie which is thinnish, medium sized and very useful again for titles. If I could have only the one, then it would defo be Script and all my craft club people feel the same way too, not just me. Maria has Script too.

Beat me to it Claire - that's why I love my Cuttlebug so much - you can use just about anything at all in them! At my craft club, there's one CB and everyone just brings their dies (all varieties even Quickcutz) and share them all! Great fun.

Well, how's this for convoluted accounting? I am on a stash diet, so did not go to an All Day crop today, costing £20 and including lunch, because I knew there was an excellent shop also coming to the crop and also knew I would spend some loot there too! So ... my accountant brain said that's at least £30 I have saved, so I will spend £28 of it on a new alphabet ... that's actually a saving of £2!!!!! Well - that's my thinking anyway!

Well I decided that as I had saved £548 on my tooth I was going to comfort myself with those. I spent £26 odd with postage which is nothing considering what I got.

I have actually got a Tag alphabet I want to sell, which I never use. It is a Cuttlebug one with each upper case letter in a tag shape and then lower case letters too and, of course, the upper case letter that is cut out when you do the tag shape! Clear as mud, eh? If anyone should want to see what it looks like, I could send them a piccy.

Isn't that always the way. Something new to play with, but no time. Not good
for a crafter.
