Stampin’ Up! are spoiling us again with another fantastic sale, just in time to get that last minute Christmas crafting done! Who am I kidding – I’ve hardly made a start to everything I need to get done…. there’s still time, right?

And not only are there amazing deals available for the next week, but there’s a 24 hour flash sale today – the special pricing is only available on limited stock, so when they are sold out the deal is gone.

New Stitched Shapes Framelits from Stampin’ Up!

Stitched Shape Framelits

Not only have Stampin’ Up! made a new product available ahead of when they were due to launch in next year’s annual catalogue (so that’s a whole 7 months early!) but they’ve also given us 25% off stamp sets which coordinate with these new dies.

I’ve wanted to create a stitched border effect on some of my die cut shapes on many occasions, and while it’s fine to take out a paper piercer, it is often painstaking work (not to mention if you manage to pierce yourself by mistake….). These new dies do the hard work for you and create a delicate stitched effect border within cut ovals, circles and squares in very useful sizes.

I’ve just added them to my next order – will you?

Stampin’ Up! Retiring List

Stampin’ Up! have released their retiring list and it’s time to check your wish list to see if something you just have to have is going to be discontinued. It might even be discounted!


While it’s sad to see favourites go, it’s all in aid of freeing up space for lovely new products in the soon-to-launch annual catalogue.

If there is something on your wish list that you can’t live without, don’t hesitate and hope that it will appear on the clearance rack – place your order with your demonstrator today. Of course I’d be happy to help you get your Stampin’ Up! fix, so please do email me to get in touch.


Stampin’ Up! Opportunity Evening

I held my first ever Stampin’ Up! opportunity evening on Thursday. I was joined by two of my good friends – one who used to be a demonstrator, and one of my best customers. My aim was to share just how amazing the current Sale-a-Bration starter kit offer is. If you didn’t know already, you can get an amazing £160 worth of current Stampin’ Up! catalogue products for only £99! Buying the starter kit is always the best value deal in the catalogue, but during Sale-a-Bration is an even better time to join the Stampin’ Up! family.

While we spent a lot of time talking about the benefits of being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, we had to do some crafting as well. I might not have got my hands on a lot of this year’s free Sale-a-Bration items yet, I did get the Botanicals for You set free with my order in December (that’s one of the perks we discussed – being able to get new product before it’s officially released!). We had great fun making this simple card.

Botanicals for you, a free stamp set available from Stampin' Up! during Sale-a-Bration

I used a strip of Perfectly Artistic Designer Series Paper (another SAB freebie, but this one is only available until 15th February) and some Silver Glimmer paper as a backdrop for the die cut oval. The cute flowers and leaves are also from the Botanicals for You set, and make decorating the gorgeous sentiment easy. I used Blushing Bride, Marina Mist and Mint Macaron – and yes, it is bugging me that the DSP is actually Bermuda Bay, but can you believe it that I do not own a single thing in that colour? Not even a Stampin’ Write marker! I think that will have to be remedied in my next order.

We’ll be crafting together again next month when I hold my first ever Stampin’ Up! team meeting. Would you like to join us? Email me to find out more about joining Stampin’ Up! and what extra fun and benefits you will get being part of my team.
