Autumn/Winter Launch ........... are you invited??

Hi guys

Where has the time gone.  Since joining Stampin Up, I have seen the launch of the New Catalogue and now it is almost time to launch the Autumn/Winter collection.  I can honestly tell you that it is amazing, there is not ONE thing in there I want.  That's because I want IT ALL.  

The ideas are inspiring, the kits outstanding and the colours for Christmas, fall and halloween are divine.  From the Designer Series Papers, to complete kits to make projects.  Stamp sets, dies and much more, there is nothing that I know I wouldn't use.  I would use it all.  Have I wet your appetite?  

I have been lucky enough to get my hands on a few of the goodies from this launch and have been busy making samples to show you .......... there will be sneek peaks on my blog from Monday 2nd September.  Check back and keep looking ........... I guarantee you'll love it.

Anyway in order to let as many of my friends know about these products I have been busy making invites to send out to a personal viewing.  Have you received one in the post?  If so please let me know if you will be coming, and during which time slot.

There will be lots to see and lots of stuff to make and take. 

The invites I made were all from the gorgeous and subtle 2013/15 In colour range and I have used the same colour ink pad on the cardstock.  I used Baked Brown Sugar, and Pistachio Pudding to start (as you can see below) but made some in each of the other 3 colours. 

I used the Very Vintage Wheel to stamp, along with the OH Hello stamp set.  To finish off I made a trim at the bottom with the Scallop Edge Punch.  I just love them.  So look out in your letterbox, you may just be lucky enough to receive one.  If you don't get one and would like to come take a look at the goodies on show, drop me an email, and I can send you the details.

A Mug, for your craft desk

Hi guys

Shortly after taking the plunge to become a demonstrator, I had a meeting with my Upline Traci and we discussed various different projects. 

Traci had posted this fantastic cup on her blog (here)

I just loved it and wanted to have a go.  On the Same day as I sat down to craft my lovely UPS man delivered a box with lots of new Stampin Up goodies.  These included the New In-Colour 2013-15 colours, and the Hearts a Flutter Stamp Set, together with the matching Framelits.  I just loved them and had to use them straight away.  The new colours are adorable, and the Pistachio pudding and Strawberry slush reminded me of Pims and Cucumber.  A great summer combo.

Here's the result.

I finished the mug off with a gift tag, stamped and cut using the Hearts a Flutter set and a mini peg coloured with Strawberry Slush.  The ribbon and button were from my old stock.

I really had fun making this.  If you would like to order the supplies to make this give me a call or drop me an email.

A little decoration??????

Hi guys

Are you one of those people who always want to add that wonderful finishing touch to any gifts.  You have wrapped them perfectly, but you feel that a flat gift tag is just not good enough .........

Well here's the answer, whether it's Xmas, birthdays, christenings etc etc this tag will fit the bill perfectly.

I first found it on Pinterest here and fell in love with it.

I was also asked to do a 5 minute WOW at regional training and decided that this was perfect.

Here's the gorgeous item:

Closed Tag

Open tag

To make this gorgeous tag I used Whispher White cardstock, Crisp Canteloupe card stock, Chocolate Chip Classic Ink Pad, Blushing Bride ribbon and the Happy Day stamp set.

I have used this tag lots and it has always had the wow factor.

If you're local to me and would like to hold a workshop in your home, why not email or call me to book and we could incorporate this into your workshop.

I can supply all items for you to make this delightful project, just give me a call or drop me an email.
