New Annual Catalogue

It's finally here – our new 2013-14 Annual Catalogue!

Stampin up annual catalogue

There are so many inspiring projects to CASE, and I love the way they have used fonts and colours throughout the catalogue. To get your very own copy, just email me!

The eagle-eyed amongst you will have looked at the back page and seen… MDS! Yes, My Digital Studio is going to be available in the UK. We don't have a launch date, but demonstrators have been able to download it to have a go. It is so easy to use and I am really looking forward to sharing ideas and techniques with you.

Stampin' Up! are really spoiling us this month. Not only do we have a new Best of set, "Best of Butterflies", but they've also taken 25% off some gorgeous greetings sets.

On offer are Sassy Salutations, Sweet Essentials and Petite Pairs at an amazing 25% discount. But be quick – this offer is only valid during July.






The Retiring Lists are here!

With the changes to our catalogues this year, the time for the retiring lists has come round far too quickly. If, like me, there are things on your wish list that are listed as retiring you don't have long left to get hold of them!

Retired lists

These products are only available until 1st July or while stocks last, so don't delay and email me your order today. You'll still earn hostess benefits if your order hits £150 so why not get some friends together?

Demonstrators have also been able to order products from the new Idea Book Catalogue from today, so expect to see some sneak peeks soon. The countdown to the new catalogue has begun…!






Spotlighting with Pleasant Poppies

It's Tuesday again and I've got another technqiue to share… spotlighting. You can add a splash of colour without going all out and colouring your whole image. Here's the effect tested out with Pleasant Poppies:

I chose to go with pink poppies for a subtle effect, but layering with Basic Black rather than Basic Gray and colouring with a luscious red such as Cherry Cobbler would create a much more striking effect. This is such a clean and simple card compared to my usual offerings. I find it quite difficult to hold back from using embellishments!






Sale-a-Bration Last Chance!

This card is for you, to say thank you for still checking my blog despite the lack of posts!

Sycamore Street and Vintage Verses

Sale-a-Bration inspiration from me has been a bit lacking (well, completely lacking really!). I have got projects to show, and also love the free products that have been available so might allow myself to keep crafting with them. I will continue to add these to my gallery over the next few weeks, hopefully still providing inspiration to those of you who have benefitted from SAB freebies this year.

It is the last day of Sale-a-Bration today. Whoever your demonstrator is, don't miss out on that last stamp set or pack of DSP that you want! It's also the last chance to benefit from the special 25% extra in the starter kit (£162.50 worth of product of your choice for only £99). If you are even only just thinking about signing up as a demo, don't hesitate. I joined during Sale-a-Bration and I haven't looked back. Whether you are joining a local demonstrator's team, or one of the many large teams in the UK as I did, you will have an amazing experience.
