New Catalogue and Sale-A-Bration

Hope you are ready for an overload of new and free products!?

First of all today we have Sale-A-Bration (SAB), the biggest promotion of the Stampin' Up! year.

For every £45 you spend, you get to choose a free product and there are 13 freebies to choose from.  Click here to see the free products.

Join Stampin' Up!
Fancy joining our team and getting even more products for the cost of the starter kit - £99.  Well, you get more for your money during SAB £150 in products for £99.  For more information on the benefits, click here.

Host a Party
Hold a party and if your total sales from the party come to over £250, you get an additional £25 in freebies.  So sales total of £250 gives you £60 in free products!   Click here for more about holding a party.

Then there is the Spring Summer Catalogue.  Loads of new (and a few firm favourites which have returned).  Please click here to view the new catalogue on line.  But dont forget, for every £45 you spend in either the new Spring Summer Catalogue or the Annual Catalogue you can pick a free product during SAB.

Stampin' Up! has launched a new Textured Boutique Embossing Machine.  It is only designed for embossing but its weight and small size make it ideal for travelling or taking to classes.  The price is only £26.95 so if you only want to add texture to your creations and dont want to die cut any shapes its the ideal solution.

The Textured Boutique Embossing Machine is available whilst stocks last and once the supply has gone, it wont be available again until the new Annual Catalogue in July, so grab yours now!

Mini Memories Simply Created Album Kit Sneak Peek


I'm so excited, lots of stuff happening right now and if you read further down you will see today's new additions.

Here is a sneak peek of a brand new kit to create your own mini album. I have only used the items in the kit and to be honest, you don't really need anything else. There's the chipboard covers, plenty of pages, some of the beautiful new vellum papers and for decorating you get lots of items including doilies, bakers twine sequins and clips.

I haven't put the photos in yet, and am thinking of putting old family photos but I want to plan it properly, so it might be a few weeks before it's finished.

Well, here are some photos of out new additions...

How cute are they!!!? We have got absolutely nothing done since we picked them up this afternoon - we just keep going out and watching them.

Hopefully we should have another new addition next weekend, but I don't want to tempt fate, so you will have to wait and see about that.

Got to shoot now as I have to get ready for the Westfield Sports College Craft Show in Sheffield tomorrow. Me, Sara, Joanne and Hazel have a stand there, hope to see you there if you can make it.

Sneak Peak

I've been playing. Yey!!!

Things have been a bit tough work-wise lately but I took Monday and Tuesday off to get my paperwork upto date and sort some other stuff out, but more of that later...

Here is a brand new kit from Stampin' Up! Which you can buy from the 28th January. The only things you don't get in the kit are the adhesives (I used Tombow glue and a glue gun).

I had an absolute ball making this, I didn't have to think about colours, materials - in fact, I made the flowers whilst watching Emerdale!

All the products are in the pack including the die cut flowers, burlap ribbon and the chipboard wreath - which at 33cm is much bigger than I thought would be.

I can't show you any more information on the wreath or I will be shot. But you can buy the kit and make one yourself from the end of January. In fact, I can see a class coming on...

Now, I mentioned before about sorting some other stuff out. Well we are getting some chickens in a couple of weeks. And I went to pick the ones we are getting on Monday.

Cute just doesn't even come close. They are bantam sized (fairly small) and we are getting 4-5. Ian is renovating their little house (bless him!) and all being well it should be ready for them in the next few days.

So you will have to get ready for lots of photos as I've decided to get some scrap booking done.

Sneak Peak and Classes

Hello, and hope your having a lovely weekend.

We had our first class of 2014 today and had a fab time making all the cards.

We sort of ran over a bit with time and I ended up giving everyone what they needed to finish the cards off at home as we needed to look at some of our new chickens! They are gorgeous - just got to get Ian to get their house ready so we can bring them home!

Our next class is on Saturday 1st Feb at 11am and here is one of the projects.

If you look carefully you will see something made using one of the new products from the Spring Summer Catalogue...

There are some matching cards to go in the box too, so book your place on the class ASAP.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year everyone. Hope it's everything you hope a great one!

I have been so chilled out I forgot to post a photo of the card I made Mum for Christmas!

I used the same DSP and products as the card I posted last week but had to make mums with more sparkle and glitter...

It's an A5 sized card and there isn't a sentiment on as she always recycles cards when she can - a true crafter!
