Some exciting new products!

We have been secretly working behind the scenes with a lovely UK company called swagmycase, to create beautiful phone covers based on some favourite Paper Panda designs.Panda Admin Vicky has been road-testing the Elizabeth and Victoria designs, and is super impressed with the quality.
We now have 9 designs available!
Available in two types - 'tough' is a gorgeous glossy style with a durable rubber lining, and 'slim' is a super slim-fitting shiny style.
Over 20 devices are supported, so whatever you use, you should be able to join the fun.
Delivery takes just two working days in the UK, perfect for last minute presents.
They're looking to add more devices in the new year, so if you don't see yours yet - watch this space!

Another exciting product added to the shop this week is the ceramic Alice in Wonderland trinket pot, featuring the Tea Party design on the lid, and text from the book around the edge.
Perfect for storing your little important things!
Very limited stock!

There is still time to nab your own original papercut in time for Christmas from the 'Paper Panda & Friends' exhibition at the Obsidian Art gallery. There are pieces in all sizes from teeny tiny miniatures to intricate A3 cuts, in a variety of styles including this colourful original. I also have some laser pieces for sale over there, so pop on over and have a look!

200,000 Facebook likes, lots of new products and 1 Christmas party! Whew - What a week!

So last Sunday (November 30th) we passed 200,000 likes on our Facebook page!
To celebrate we had a pretty immense 200minute, 20% off discount offer...Which was hectic! Thank you all so much for your purchases & support!
This is a pretty momentous milestone and without wanting to sound too gushy I'd like to thank my team who've gotten me through some rough patches this year that I couldn't have survived without them, so thanks guys for keeping the page, emails and my brain running smoothly, you rock.
Thanks to Trisha at Obsidian Art for letting me have my own show (still lots left peeps!) and thank you to Search Press Art and Craft Books who have enough faith in me to convince me a bigger, better book should be written even before my little one has been made. Cool! You can pre-order the little one here!
Thank you to my likers, every one of you (except you, maybe *points at troll*) for without you this rockin' little page wouldn't exist and I'd have to go and work somewhere less exciting, maybe even outside, which would suck.
Thanks, just thanks. Love you xxx.

On the same day I popped over to Obsidian Art Gallery for a meet & greet for the Winter Wonders and Friends exhibition.

Here's the super lovely and talented Kim Anderson Artist & Illustrator and Marnie makes, and a gurning Panda.
Thank you to everyone who came along and said hello, you're all awesome beyond words, and I couldn't do this without you! Obviously I couldn't go over the gallery without taking a few extra originals now, could I? Do pop over and check if you get the chance!

This week also saw

Not only are there a whopping 7 new card designs available, there are also 2 swanky notebooks

These two gorgeous new Wonderland inspired clear stamp sets have also been added to the online shop this week.

On Saturday we had the Paper Panda Christmas Party!
The team were all gathered in Bourton on the Water for a little seasonal get together! Some of us meeting for the first time! Eeek! (minus Emily - she bailed to go her niece's third birthday party - PAH! )
Say Cheese! ;) This year we did a handmade Secret Santa for our Christmas gifts, it's been fun for all of us to try and make the 'perfect' gift for each other! I think next year we'll have to think of something a little easier though, as we said we had to try a new craft, so I couldn't make a Papercut and Our Julie thinks she has the creativity of a teaspoon, we all know that's not true though, she made an awesome gift, A guinea pig house for Vicky's little piggies, it was perfect!
It was great to see what everyone had come up with, A needle felted Roy Ragdoll cat for me from Mr P! Admin Vicky made a smashing origami mirror frame from maps for TimSam. TimSam made Emily a gorgeous fish plush..I could go on...You can see updates on the Facebook wall. ;)

All in all it has been a pretty fabulous week! P xx

A note about postage - This time of year is incredibly busy for us so things may take a day or two longer to dispatch than normal, rest assured we are working as fast and we can to get your orders out to you swiftly. It is also mega busy for Royal Mail, we rely on their service to help keep ours tip top. Obviously we cannot guarantee a parcel arrving on or by a certain date due to this. We still use the first class service and we will be posting out as normal, Monday to Friday, right up until around the 20th (if not later) of December! I would advice that your purchase your items, sooner rather than later to help minimise the chance of late delivery.

*Instant items - Gift Vouchers & Emailed templates, these will still continue to arrive in the speedy manner, as normal.
** Made to order items - Canvas prints, vinyls & decorations - the final posting date has passed for guaranteed Christmas delivery, these items can take a while to arrive, so may not get there before the big day!
