Sale-a-bration

So less than a month until Sale-a-bration finishes for 2013 - do you have your free goodies yet??

I was completely bamboozeled by this years SAB catty - it is pretty full on - but this is the first year we have had more than 4 things to choose from. This time we had a whopping 19 items to choose from, even some from the Annual Catalogue. We had a mix of stamp sets, buttons and ribbon, designer series paper, embossing folder and simple sent card kits - something for everyone! The very first item I claimed was the Feeling Sentimental stamp set in clear mount 129630. It just jumped out at me! I have made lots of pretty things with it, but when I came across this card on Pinterest, I had to remake it!!

Now my photography doesn't do this gorgeous card any justice at all! I tried to find the original to link back, but no luck - so to the original artist, cheers! I love your card!! (pictured above is my version). This card is made with the traditional A5 sized piece of cardstock, and in…

What a difference sanding makes....

So the new Seasonal Catalogue - click here - has so many gorgeous products in it that you need to go through it several times to see them all!! I have been through the catty so many times, I even have it saved to my ipad so that I can flick through it when I am out - my ipad has certainly paid for itself with being able to show customers or potential customers what I am talking about right then and there!

My new love from the Seasonal Catalogue is the Core'dinations Card Stock. We had 3 colours of this cardstock in our Holiday Mini, but with so much else in that catalogue, I didn't get to focus on it, but with this catalogue comes new colours!!

Page 12 shows you the new colours for this catalogue - Pool Party (my fav!!), Primrose Petals and Real Red. Using a sanding block - check out our little cutie! - you can sand back a portion of the cardstock revealing a monochromatic (lighter version of top colour ) version in that area. When embossed with an embossing folder, the raise…

Stampin' Up! Seasonal Catalogue....

So we have had the new Seasonal Catalogue (formerly the Mini Catalogue) available to order from for nearly a month now - do you have yours? I absolutely love this catalogue, and I have to tell you, I have recruited more than one 'non-stamper' to becoming a 'stamper' just by showing them some of the gorgeous product that is in this very catalogue!!

Here are a couple of samples I have made to show to my latest Stampin' Parties (workshops):


I CASED this card from Pinterest (link to my boards) and just changed out the colours and sentiment to what I had on hand - this card showcases one of the new ribbons ( 1cm striped organdy ribbon melon mambo 129293), a fabulously verstatile new stamp set ( That's the Ticket 128075) and my favourite item from the new catalogue ( Flower Trim 126869), not to mention some favs from the Annual Catalogue:)

This one I just love and I used it as my last Make and Take at a workshop for a friend. I again CASED it from Pinterest (link to…
