New Catalogue, New products

Hi there and welcome back to my blog.

Well the new catalogue is out and there is so many fab items in there. One of my first buys were the new in colours…..I love them loads and they fit in with the other available colours. I just don’t know how they are able to bring so many fab colours in every year.

The other items I brought included the new lace ribbon, and the perpetual birthday stamp set….and instead of just using it for the calendar how about using them on other projects. Below is one of my first makes using the new product and stamp sets.

Oh and those envelopes are our new envelope papers….and I made them using the envelope punch board…Fab right!

If you are interested in stampin up! products then contact me.



Join my team in June and not only will you receive the starter kit of £130 of product for only £99 but you will also get 2 stamp sets of your choice FREE! Yep you read correctly they are FREE! The best thing is you can join just to buy the products, you don’t have to be an active demonstrator, you can be what we call a hobby demonstrator. So if after 3 months you don’t want to keep investing / sell products then you can ‘drop’ and you keep EVERYTHING you have brought.

Interested in more information…..then contact me. This offer will end soon.

Watch this space for more projects soon!

Technique Friday!

Well nobody took part last week 😦 but maybe you are all so busy!

This week I would like to show another technique video so please come and watch, have a go, then post your pics of your makes below. I would love to see them and share them too. xx

This week it is Watercolour Shadows and Highlights.

Soo now I want to see your makes!

See you Soon.


Product Shares

It is that time of year when we are so excited with the new catalogue coming out that we just want to have everything. Unfortunately most of us can’t afford everything which is why I do a product share. The basic idea is that I order the packs of papers, embellishment, ribbons etc and split them between several people and reduce the cost accordingly. I have now updated my product share page for the new year! All costs are there but at present I am not allowed to show the catalogue so the page will be updated with all the pics once the catalogue becomes live on the 2nd of June. *****im so excited***!!!!

The share prices are not static so if you only wanted the patterned papers for example I would calculate the cost accordingly. My customers love this and I would love you to join me too!

Please do contact me for more information. PLUS if you do participate in a share I will give you a FREE catalogue as well.

So please let me know if you are interested and I will add you to my share list! 🙂

See you soon

Well with the end of the catalogue coming soon and the promise of some new goodies I had to make a few purchases myself, but being careful I only brought a few things I knew I wanted and those that if you so choose to can also buy from the catalogue going into the new year.


I have loved the thought of making my own calendar so the perpetual Birthday calendar set was a fab buy with a matching stamp set. Also brought the border blooms stamp set plus a couple of the in colour stampin’ pads before the new prices come to effect.  I can’t wait to use these items but I am going to hold on a little longer as I would like to use the new in colours that should be arriving hopefully within the next week. Not that I should be excited….but I just love some new crafting items.

See you all soon…. and let me know what colours you like from the new releases and what you are looking forward to from the new catalogue.

Retirement Lists

Hello all,

It is the sad part of the year when we get to find out which products will retire from this years Stampin’ up! Catalogues and no longer be available. With the new catalogue coming in June we are all sad to see some products go….however where there is a goodbye there is always a hello to follow shortly afterwards. And knowing Stampin up! there will be some exciting new things coming soon.

So if there is a stamp set, ink choice etc then from 21st May 2015 the retirement list is out. If you want it, my advice is to get it as soon as you can because once it has sold out it will be a sad goodbye and never to be seen again.

Soo to keep an eye go and have a peek at my shop on  21st May and buy those deals.

And oh forgot to add sometimes discounts are offered on certain products so buy whilst it is still there.

And if you do….come back and let me know which fab deals you got!

Browse and Shop here now…..SHOP!

See you all soon 🙂


My apologies it has been so long since I have added to this blog. Promise I will try to update more often but as life does sometimes get in the way. With 2 active boys and my nursing career, and the university course I am also doing, sometimes its not easy to balance life. Saying that I am still creating so some of my projects will be uploaded soon.

The important things to make a note at the moment is that unfortunately SAB has reached the end now which is rather sad. However this only means more exciting things will be coming soon. Stampin up always has offers of some sort and with the current season coming to the end soon and the new catalogue coming in, there promises of some fabulous new ranges (and i am certainly jumping in my chair in anticipation.)

The clearance rack has been updated so make sure you go and look at those deals while available as when its gone…..its gone. Click HERE to click to my clearance page.

Further more we still have some fab ranges of items on our weekly deal list make sure you pop over and visit the weekly deal page to have a peek… HERE.

So watch out for more information and I will be back Real Soon!

Stampin with friends

One of the things i love about Stampin’ up! is the way it can bring people together. I love to craft with friends and love to inspire and get inspired….all a part of the stampin’ up’s philosophy.

So on Friday I had a work collegue and friend round for the day and we crafted and nattered the day away. Her makes are truly inspiring and i love them as they use one of my favourite stampin up stamps…. gorgeous grunge. The cards made are shown below.
