Stampin’ Up! 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue – Pre-order Reveal

With the launch of the new 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue only a few short weeks away, there is a lot of excitement about the new things which are coming. One of the benefits of being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator is that we not only get to see inside the new catalogue before it is officially released, we are also able to pre-order a selection of these new items. I had to take advantage and placed my pre-order last week. Now that it has arrived I am thrilled to share some of these fabulous items with you. I’ve put together a little video so you can actually have a closer look at the items I received.

Here’s the video…

Did you have a favourite from the pre-order? I’ve already started to create with the Bright Wishes stamp set. The well is gorgeous! I’m also planning to work with the Eastern Medallions Thinlits dies to show you just some of the many designs you can come up with.
It’s going to be such a great must-have set, especially when you combine it with the Layering Circle Framelits dies. I foresee a lot of creating coming for me…and I cannot wait!

Even though I cannot show you the inside of the catalogue, I can show you the front cover. Isn’t it pretty? You’ll love what is inside – something for everything. Don’t forget it goes live on June 1, 2017.

Stampin' Up! 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue

Whilst we are all excited about the new releases, don’t forget time is ticking on the current catalogue as it is retiring on 31st May, 2017. If you are wishing to grab a few things before the catalogue finishes, now is the time. Don’t forget some items have been discounted so you just might find yourself with a bargain!

Thank you for stopping by today!

Happy Stamping!

Just For You (Birthday Blooms/Stampin’ Up!)

Hi Everyone, the Birthday Blooms stamp set is still one of my favourite in the current 2016-2017 Annual Catalogue. I have made a LOT of cards using this stamp set. I have posted some of my card designs in earlier posts but there are a lot more which are just variations of the same design. I’ve decided to share them all over the next few posts as I think they go a long way to showing how just a different sentiment stamp or a change in the colours used, creates variety. Don’t forget that we end up sending the cards to different people so it doesn’t matter how similar, or different, they are. Just do what you love!

So let’s get started.

Here’s the first card…
Just For You
Materials used: Stamps – Birthday Blooms (140658), Watercolor Wings (139424); Cardstock – Knights Smooth, American Crafts; Memento Black Ink, Smoky Slate Classic Stampin’ Pad; Wink of Stella: Clear; Rhinestones and Copic Markers.
Here’s the next card…
Thank You
Materials used: Stamps – Birthday Blooms (140658), Endless Thanks (138796), Diagonal Stripe (141917); Cardstock – Knights Smooth, American Crafts; Memento Black Ink, Smoky Slate Classic Stampin’ Pad; Wink of Stella: Clear; Rhinestones and Copic Markers.
Here’s the final card…
Just For You
Materials used: Stamps – Birthday Blooms (140658), Watercolor Wings (139424); Cardstock – Knights Smooth, American Crafts; Memento Black Ink, Smoky Slate Classic Stampin’ Pad, Whisper White Craft Ink; White Embossing Powder; Wink of Stella: Clear; Rhinestones and Copic Markers.

I hope the above cards have encouraged you to dig out your favourite stamp set and play. Vary a few features such as the colour or sentiment and just see where you end up.

Don’t forget to check out the Retiring List today as it might be the last chance you get to grab one of your favourites in the current catalogue. Some items are selling out fast!

The Retiring List is Here! (Stampin’ Up! 2016/2017 Annual Catalogue)

With the release of the 2017/2018 Annual Catalogue coming up very soon, it is regrettably the time of the year when Stampin’ Up! releases the list of retiring products. Whilst it is sad to see some of our favourites leaving, thankfully there is still enough time to stock up on items we might need (such as In-Color re-inkers) or just a few things which have been on our wishlist for a while now. Just remember, stocks are available only while they last so do not hesitate to get in quickly if you really need or want something. I’d hate for you to be disappointed. Some items may be discounted so you may also be able to snag a bargain!

Here’s a list of the retiring items – download the Retiring_List_SP.

You can order from my online shop at

Remember: All retiring items are available while supplies last and will be discontinued after 31 May.

Happy Stamping!

I Hope Your Day Is As Sweet As You Are (Cool Treats Bundle from the Occasions catalogue)

Hi Everyone,

A very quick and simple card to share today using the Cool Treats bundle, once again, from the Occasions catalogue. As you can tell I love this set! A little trick for spacing the ice cream evenly is to use a piece of Press’n Seal by Glad. Simply space the images across the card. When you are happy with how it looks, take a piece of Press’n Seal and lay it over the top. This will grab the images. Lift up. Add adhesive to the images and press them down again. Rub over the images to ensure they are stuck in place and gently remove the Press’n Seal. Voila! They are exactly where you placed them!

Here’s the card…
I Hope Your Day Is As Sweet As You Are
Materials used: Stamps – Cool Treats; Dies – Frozen Treats Framelits, Lots of Labels Framelits; Cardstock – Crumb Cake, Whisper White; and Stamp Pads – Chocolate Chip, Crumb Cake, Peekaboo Peach, Pool Party, Watermelon Wonder.

Thanks for stopping by today! If you are interested in any of the items used to create this card, please visit my online shop at

Don’t forget Sale-A-Bration is still on – only a few days remain!

Happy Stamping!
