I need your help!

Good evening/morning everybody - well those who are reading this 😉

As stated in the title of this post, I really need some help at the moment.  I am seriously close to two personal Stampin' Up! targets, and desperately need to increase my sales to achieve them, if possible before the end of September.

With this in mind, I am hoping to sell lots of the above class kit as a 'to go' kit. I will also be teaching this as a class, so if anybody in the Wirral/Merseyside area would like to attend, please let me know. One date is already full, and so I will set up another date once I have an idea of numbers of people interested.

The two layouts above, are ones that I created at our recent 4th Croydon Sizzling Retreat, and were made using the fabulous Coffee Break designer series papers, together with a selection of matching cardstock and embellishments.  You will have more than enough supplies to make six layouts at the very least!

In the kit, you will receive:-
Coffee Break designer series papers
1 full set of the Coffee Break designer series papers,
6 @ 12x12 cardstock (3 kraft, 3 white)
6 @ A4 sheets of cardstock (2 green, 2 crumb cake and 2 blue)
Selection of embellishments
Instructions (by email) for the two scrapbook pages above

The cost of the kit is £25 including postage.  

Plus - for kit buyers only, I am offering the Labeler photopolymer stamp set (great for scrapbook pages and cards) for £12 instead of the usual £15 (a huge saving of 20%)  I would be lost without this stamp set as I use it for everything and it has 101 stamps in the set! 😲

To order your kit or kit and stamps, please contact me on or call/text me on 07747 465186,

PLEASE NOTE: Orders will not be placed until they have been paid for, and I can accept bank transfer or paypal (I will send you a paypal invoice)


I will be posting a kit and samples for a card kit after the weekend ... I'm sadly taking the Son & Heir back to Brighton Uni tomorrow for his last year :(  Where does the time go eh?!?! 

Catch you all soon - Happy Crafting!

A Whole Latte Love

What goes better together than coffee, stamping, and friends? Nothing! It’s the perfect combination! And just like your coffee, you can customise your projects—without the added calories. Try inking just the word “friend” from the Coffee Café Stamp Set for a personal touch. Use the straw image to stamp a background. Or, colour the inside of the wooden heart with craft ink for added contrast. There’s a whole latte love about this set and the coordinating products in the Coffee Break Suite.

Actually ... there is something that could be added to the coffee, stamping and friends ... chocolate!

Anyway, here's a video from Stampin' Up! with more ideas and details about the bundle.

To order your bundle and receive 10% discount from buying individually, use the 'shop now' link above or email me at or call/text me on 07747 465186.

DON'T FORGET - if you spend over £45 then I will reimburse your postage costs.

We will be using the matching paper bundle during the annual Sizzling Crop retreat in Croydon in August, so if you would like to go on the 'waiting list' for the classes, just let me know.

Have a great sunny day!   Cal xxxxxxx

If you Plan well .... and if you don't!

This WAS me for planning ...

I didn't!

I was never one for planning ahead, or making notes, but nowadays, I find that I have to make notes for everything otherwise I will forget - which I do, frequently!

So welcome to this little baby ..

Stampin' Up! Planner
Includes Monthly Dividers and Weekly Pages
Also Includes Pockets, Wallets, Stickers and matching Post-it Notes
The quality of this Planner is stunning, and combined with gold metal edges, it will definitely stand up to lots of use. You can also buy a refill kit which includes everything except the Planner itself, so it truly will last you a lifetime.

This costs only £33.00 and really does include ALL of the above.  For quality and cost, I think it's amazing value!    I'll show you mine once I have started filling it - who knows, I might even video it, now that would be novel ... however, in the meantime, here is a great video from Stampin' Up! showing you everything that is included, and how it is used.

Remember - popular products like this will sell quickly, so to avoid a delay, make sure you order yours as soon as possible.

While you're there, have a look around the Stampin' Up! You Tube channel for lots more new products and ideas.

To place your order, please either email me at or call/text me on 07747 465186.

See you soon!   Cal xxx

It's Launch Day!

... of the NEW 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue that is!

You can see the catalogue in all of it's glory on the right hand side of my blog.  Just click on the picture, and it will take you directly to the pdf.

REMEMBER - when a new catalogue launches it usually means some products will temporarily sell out very quickly.  Sometimes it can be days or weeks before they're back in stock, so order as soon as you can or call me today and you won't be disappointed.

MY TOP FIVE PRODUCTS (which I think will sell out very quickly)

1.  The Planner Kit - Page 12
2.  Colourful Seasons Bundle - Page 149
3. Daisy Bundle - Page 126
4. Tabs for Everything Bundle - Page 43
5. In Colour Inkpads/Card etc. - Page 184 

These beauties are the range of new in-colours for this year.  They work amazingly together, and they work fantastic combined with other colours families.  Over the next few days, I'll be able to show you the different colour combinations and how they work with each other ... Aren't they beautiful?!?! This is definitely my most favourite launch of in-colours EVER!


I've shown you a sneaky peak of the wonderful Daisy Bundle - well this is the whole bundle.  The stamp set and punch are sold as a bundle, and the papers, card, ribbons, gems are sold individually.  With a discount for buying a bundle, I think this is amazing value. 

This will be the first card class that I will be advertising, and it will also be sold as a 'Class to Go' too.  I absolutely love this bundle, and my teamie Julie (Ribbon Hoarder blog) and I had a play the other week and came up with the following ... I hope you enjoy our samples.

It really is an amazing set, that is so adaptable and can be used on lots of different projects.  A little tip though ... make sure you have one leaf of the daisy pointing down when you stamp and then punch them - it makes life a lot easier!

As you will see from the catalogue, there are masses of new products - have you seen the embossing paste yet?!  There's tons of new card (A4 and 12x12), the fantastic new Planner (oh my days, its even more beautiful in real life), new ribbons, new embellishments .. new everything!


During June, you can earn an extra £30 of product for placing an order, or hosting a party over £300.  I know it's a big ask, but maybe you could put yours and your friends orders together and share the extra benefits.  Here's a picture showing all the extras you can earn.

I know there's a lot to go through, so I'll sign off for now.  However, if you have any questions, then please call or text me on 07747 465186 or email me on

So grab a brew and a chocolate biscuit and take a look through the catalogue - if you are ready to place an order, then contact me as per above.  Here's a little shopping list to help you to take notes.

Have fun and thank you for choosing me to be your Demonstrator!
