Stampin' Up! - some of my favourite things

Hello everyone

I was thinking.... what would I buy if I hadn't already got them?

mmmmm... I could make a list as long as your arm... but here are some of my favourites that I already have and would say they are keepers.

I have included stamps, coordinating punches, some designer series paper and tools of course.  I couldn't survive without a good trimmer or my Stamparatus.

Take a look

2019 Autumn/Winter catalogue clearout and retiring items

Hello everyone

It's that time of year when Stampin' Up! clears out surplus goodies and discounts them.

So if you have been holding out for something, I would get it before it sells out.

 Visit my online store to see what is availalble

As items won't last long - they are on 'Whilst stocks last' , the easiest way to see what is still available is to pop over to my online store.  Just click here

Also, we have been advised of the products from the Autumn/Winter catalogue that will be carrying over.... yay!  that means I get to use them for much longer!!

Again, some of these are still available but they are 'whilst stocks last' so shop now if you want them for your Christmas crafting this year.

This year though Stampin' Up! are doing something a little different, some products will carry over to the new 2020 Annual catalogue and some will hibernate until the next mini catalogue for the Autumn/Winter season..... (yes that's right,  they won't be available to purchase for a while,  but will pop up again in a seasonal mini catalogue).

To see which ones are hibernating, just click the picture below.

Thanks for stopping by.

Happy Crafting!

The Crafty Paper Party - was FAB-U-LUS

Hello everyone

Whoop!  Whoop!  Don't you love it when a plan comes together.  We held our Crafty Paper Party on 14 November and everyone had a great time.

A huge THANK YOU to everyone who came along and to those who didn't... perhaps we will see you next time ))

When everyone arrived they were given a goodie bag and all congregated for a coffee/tea.

Then when everyone had arrived - the fun began

In the morning everyone made 3 cards and a bag.

Then in the afternoon, everyone made a countdown to Christmas flip calendar.
This involved a lot of stamping.... 35 stamps in all!  Wow!

Thank you Linda, Jeanette and Val for all your help in the preparation, the set up and for everything you did on the day.  

The feedback we have received, was brilliant and everyone can't wait for the next one.

Happy Crafting!

Stampin' Up! Birds of a Feather robin card made at Stamp n Sip

Hello everyone

Here is a card that we made at Stamp n Sip recently using the Birds of a Feather stamp set,   isn't he cute.

This card is A6 size.
The Real Red mat is 4 1/4" x 3"
The strip of designer series paper  is 6" x 2"
The Robin is stamped onto a 2 1/4" whisper white circle and then coloured using Stampin Blend pens.
The Sunburst circle is punched in Real Red.
The sentiment, from Snowman Season,  is stamped on a piece of Whisper White sized at 5 1/2" x 1".  The Triple Banner punch was used to create the fish tail on right hand edge.
To add a bit of sparkle, I added a bit of Wink of Stella to his hat and the star.

Here are the cards made at Stamp n Sip.  Brilliant job, everyone xxx

Thank you for visiting today.

Happy Crafting!
