About Me

My photo
I have been a Stampin' Up Demonstrator for almost two years now, and when I signed up it was just for the starter kit and discount on products........ I never imagined it would snowball into being a business like it has. I am a new Mummy to my little boy, Isaac, who is almost four months old now. I am spending my maternity leave enjoying watch him grow up, becoming his own little person, and also trying to build my business up. Stampin' Up! have amazing products and I would love to share my crafting passion with as many people as possible. I am always putting through orders, so if you need anything, or just want some information or advise, please do not hesitate to contact me. If you want to try before you buy, then check out my classes and get booked on.

Good morning one and all..........

The day has finally arrived that the NEW 2013/2014 Stampin' Up! Catalogue is released!!!!!

A group of us have arranged a blog hop so you can get a great taste of what's new from SU this time around.  

You've probably arrived here from Queen Pip who always has something fabulous going on, and today will be no exception!

I have a couple of cards to share with you that I made in preparation for my open house event this past weekend.

This first one uses the Mosaic Madness stamp set and co-ordinating punch (which can be bought as a bundle for 15% discount!), plus the Quatrefancy Speciality DSP.

I've picked colours from the DSP which includes the very lush Strawberry Slush (one of the new In Colours for 2013-2015).  It makes my feel hungry whenever I use it!

The second card is my favourite..............  the new Washi Tape that Stampin' Up has included in this new catalogue is just lovely.  It really can be used to make a card in a matter of minutes!

The stamped images come from a new set called Happy Day, which contains lots of lovely word images plus the swirl I have used on this card and also a doily type image.

I think the hardest part of this card was using the Stamp-a-ma-jig to line things up as it was at at angle.

If you would like to get your hands on a copy of the new catalogue, then email or call me and I can either drop one off or pop it in the post.  Also, if you simply have to get your hands on some of the new products right away, then contact me to order as I shall be placing orders frequently over the coming days and weeks.
