Heartfelt goodbye!

Well Tuesday sees the retirement of one of my favourite sets in the current Stampin' Up! catalogue - the lovely Level 3 Hostess Set - Heartfelt.
I am really sad to see this one go, its such a gorgeous set.
My sister asked me to make a card for her Mother in Law so I thought I would use this set. I have used the 2 step stampin technique on the brown flowers and if you look carefully 3 of the flowers have been stamped and cut out again for a decoupaged effect which you cannot really see on the picture.
Wording done on my PC and "mum" is the Big Deal alphabet stamp.
Colour combo is the scrummy Taken with Teal, Close to Cocoa and Chocolate Chip

Hope you like!!

It is totally lovely and of course the new products are fantastic and loads of ideas for projects in there too. The best thing is the prices on most items have come down which is great.
I can start placing orders on 1st October and I will be making an order that day!! If you are interested in buying a catalogue from me for £4.00 (inc postage) then please get in touch and I can arrange for one to be delivered to you.

9 days to go!!!!

Until the new Stampin' Up! catalogue is out!!!!
I have one in my possession but it is top secret!!! My order of catalogues whould however be here this week so if you have ordered one from me it will be on its way to you!!!
Dont forget I am taking pre-orders for the new Scallop Edge punch which I will be ordering on the 1st October. These are fantastic value at £10.95 and I have had a practise with one at the SU training I attended on Friday and they work with cardstock, not just paper, in case you were wondering!!!
What a fab time I had at the Field Training, met some great ladies and the weekend was eventful to say the least!!!!
Didnt end up sleeping where I had intended to sleep but my new roomies were very accomodating!!! And yes they were female!! LOL!!!
I have had a lot of interest in my Stampers 10 monthly club, so I am thinking of setting up another one in conjunction with the catalogue launch. If you are happy to spend £15.oo a month on SU goodies for 10 months and receive free goodies during one of the 10 months then please get in touch with me and I will give you more information!!
Right I am off to add to my ever expanding wish list!!

Happy Birthday Anna!

Today is my friend Anna's birthday. I made her a card with my new True Friend stamp set.

The colours used are my current favourite combination of Apricot Appeal. Chocolate Chip and Regal Rose.

The photos arent the best as I had to use the flash on my camera but I am sure you get the idea. Also forgot to say I have used my other new set, Totally Tabs, can you see the little pattern on the tab at the top?

Anyway Happy Birthday Anna, hope you have had a nice day xx

Do you like a Scallop???

Great news!!! Stampin' Up! will be launching a new catalogue on 1st October and we have found out that the new Scallop Edge Punch will be in the new book!!!!

OMG, this punch is fantastic, very much like the Fiskars Threading Water Punch but with no holes in the scallops. The price is £10.95 and you can register you order with me today and I will order on the 1st October for you.
If you would like to order this with me please mail me at First 5 people to order will get a little extra treat in their parcel too!!!

A lot to tell you!!

Well there is so much to tell from the Stampin' Up! HQ!

The 1st of October sees the launch of the brand new Stampin' Up! catalogue, which should be bigger and better than ever before!!!

In order to make room for some new goodies Stampin' Up! have announced their Retirement List. This means the items are available until they are sold out and then after that they will be no more!! So if there is something on the list that you really fancy please mail me sharpish and I will get it ordered for you!!!

If you have a look at the list you will see that some of the prices have been lowered. This is because Stampin' Up! are lowering the prices across the next catalogue and the items on the retired list reflect this new pricing.
I have some sneak peeks of new sets to show you very soon so WATCH THIS SPACE!!
