Please contact me to get your hands on the 2011-2012 Idea Book and Catalogue.  If you've never seen one, I'm sure you'll be impressed with how packed full of ideas and samples it is.

I'll be updating my blog in the next few days so you can see it directly more easily.

However, if you can't wait, click HERE and it will take you to the Stampin Up website which should have it live from 1st October!

I'll leave you with this card, that was inspired by a skirt I saw in a shop window!

Girly letters...

... for a beautiful baby.

I ordered some wooden letters, and covered them with a new collection called "Delicate Doilies" (available from the 1st October.  The sides of the letters were inked, and then I stuck some paper doilies from the same collection and some extra twiddly bits in the centres.

Simply Stampin' Challenge 25

Tis week on Simply Stampin they gave us this sketch...

This is what I made.  Given you a bit more of a sneak peek at the new products coming out next month.  Have you noticed that I really love the butterfly stamp?  Using the blender pens to colour it in, I can make it match any card I am making.

Goodbye Baby...

...Blossoms that is.  The beautiful stamp set baby Blossoms is retiring along with any stamps that are in the mini catalogue that have not made it through to next years catty.

You get a lot of stamps for your money, and with careful use with a Stampamajig you can create infinite different backgrounds.
I used the leaves and the little flowers stamp on the card below.

There's a sneak peek of a new punch coming out on the card too.  It's a gorgeous lace punch available from the 1st October.

These were the challenge colours this week - very girly!

Crafty Party Time!

Last Saturday I did my first Crafty Party for a young lady turning 8.  She had 8 other guests and we made 3 items, a keyring, a bracelet and a notebook.

The girls were lovely and worked really hard on their creations,

Here is a picture of their notebooks and bracelets, a huge thanks to mummy "L" for sending it to me!  Look at all those yummy Stampin' Up! colours!

Please get in touch if you would like me to run a Crafty Party for your child's birthday.

Anniversary card and retiring items...

Had some time to play last night after I finished the preparation for a birthday Crafty Party.  Used the stamps from the retiring (boohoo) Hostess Set Punch Potpourri and Something to Celebrate.

It's been an exciting and traumatic week for Stampin Up hostesses in the UK as they've revealed which stamp sets and other items are retiring.  This basically means that on the 1st October they will no longer be available and a new idea book and catalogue will be in operation. Now that's the fun part, we've already had a sneak preview of the new catalogue, and although we're sad to see some favourites go, we're really excited to be able to share some lovely new products with you.

As usual, the quality is second to none, the colour co ordination is impeccable and the attention to detail is beautiful.  I am awaiting delivery of some new products to play with and show you.

Before that, just wanted to encourage you to look at the retiring list HERE, and a few of the items going AND that are reduced!  Please contact me ASAP to place an order, as these items can sell out fast!

Neighbourhood Wheel was £8.50 now £5.10

Sweet Birthday stamp was £6.95 now £5.21

Basic Phrases was £33.95 now £25.46
