STAMPERS GROUP/10 CLUB - spread the cost!
I have 3 spaces available for a new group starting in August.  You commit to spending £15 per month (plus postage) for 10 months, and for one of those months, you become the 'virtual' hostess and will earn AT LEAST £15 to spend on anything you would like from the current catalogues.  It's a great way of budgeting for your crafting!
You will also receive any catalogues that are launched during your period with the group, for free!
Don't forget.  If you introduce a new crafter to the group, you will be thanked with a gift voucher to spend on anything of your choice (after 3 months of orders).  More details can be found HERE

I am looking for new crafters who would like to earn an income.  Did you know that you can earn at least 20% commission off your orders if you become a Demonstrator.  In October, there will be quite a few changes to our Compensation Plan, which means that you will have the potential to earn up to 25% off your orders.  Imagine that ... 25% off all your craft supplies, and add to that the potential for financial overrides, free products, free help and guidance, and it all adds up to a really generous Compensation Plan.

There are a lot more benefits to becoming a Demonstrator, and if you look HERE, you can see them all.  However, one of the great benefits of becoming a Demonstrator, is that you will become a part of the amazing 'Hearts' team.  We are a friendly, helpful bunch of crafters, and I am proud to say that all of the team are willing to share their ideas and knowledge.  We have a dedicated Facebook Team page, and somebody is always around to help you if needed.

There are so many more benefits that I could type for days - sneaky peaks and pre-orders from  upcoming catalogues, a generous discount on your purchases, and joining the 'Hearts' team - what are you waiting for - sign HERE !

Thanks ! NEW catalogue, NEW products, NEW focus !

I'm hoping that by now, you have all had the opportunity to either view online, or view the new main 2015-2016 catalogue.

Over the next few days, weeks, I'll be taking one product, and giving you an overview of the type of projects you can create using that product.

My highlight today, focuses on the amazing Layered Letters alphabet stamp set.  Now I know most of you, me included, don't always plump for an alphabet as being one of your 'must have' stamps sets, however, this set might just change your mind.

Layered Letters Alphabet Set - images from Pinterest

Not only is this a more 'hand drawn' alphabet, but there are also shadow stamps and exclamation marks.

The two samples above show you two different ways that you can use the rectangle shadow stamp with the alphabet - both extremely effectively.  The bottom sample is from Vicky Hayes, who is a current UK Artisan designer.

These two samples above, show you the alphabet used with the circular shadow stamp.

I'm hard pressed to decide which I prefer !

As a final sample, the picture below shows you just the alphabet on its own, which I think is cuter than cute !

As most of you know, I'm rather poorly at the moment with suspected Menieres (but we're calling it Vertigo at the moment).  I've been off work for four weeks now, and I'm still not able to stand without wobbling or lift my head up, down, left or right without feeling the most horrendous nausea.  

The reason I'm telling you this isn't for sympathy, but to explain why I haven't produced my own samples yet !  It is so frustrating, having new products and you can't play !

NEW Demonstrator Offer

As I explained in a recent post, there are lots of changes afoot at Stampin Up! for demonstrators.  These changes will start being implemented for new demonstrators who sign up on the 1st July, which means, that you have this month to sign up under the 'old' demonstratorship.

To take advantage of this, Stampin Up are currently offering new demonstrators who sign up, TWO new stamp sets from the new catalogue, a starter kit of £99 where you can choose £130 worth of products of your choice ... plus a free £45 stationery kit containing catalogues AND free postage !  This is one of the best offers I've ever seen, and if you wish to take advantage of this offer, this month, then please click the link HERE

As always, if you wish to place an order, or have any questions or queries, please contact me on or call/text me on 07747 465186.  OR if you just want to place an order, then click the SHOP NOW link above.

Take care out there - Cal xxx

Not long to go ...

There's only 8 days to go until the launch of the new MAIN Catalogue for 2015.

One of the benefits of being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, is that we get to see the new catalogues a month before the general public.  We also get to attend some amazing events, including the most recent - Telford !

Here's a few photos of my team from the event. Sorry for the poor quality of the top two - they were taken in the pub !

As well as discussing the new Compensation Plan that is starting to take effect on the 2nd June (see previous post for more details), we were also treated to some fantastic demonstrations using the new products.  There were also lots of display boards of samples, and some of those are posted below.

This is one of the new card kits as demonstrated by the talented Emily Thompson.

These are stunning samples from Sarah Berry using the new butterfly framelits and lots of other new products !

This amazing 'cake' is one of several new bundles that will be available in the catalogue.  Also, the 'cake' die is available to purchase on its own as well ! YAY !!!

Telford is the main event for me of the Stampin Up! year, Although I love Convention, Telford is more personal for me, and means that I can catch up with the many friends that I have made since I became a Demonstrator.

Here's a sneaky peak of the new catalogue - the photograph is of me and Chris from our German Demo Support - he's such a lovely person, and is always up for a laugh !  #christhecatalogue

I was also lucky enough to win one of the Prize Patrols ! How apt - I won a set of the new Project Life Cards ! YAY !!!

If you would like to receive a copy of the new catalogue, then please email me on

DON'T FORGET - you only have until 2nd June to place orders from the current main catalogue and the current Spring/Summer catalogue.  Be warned though - a lot of products have already sold out !

As always, if you have any questions or queries, please contact me on or call/text me on 07747 465186

Just to finish ... I'll leave you with some samples of the NEW In-Colours for 2015-2016 that I found on Pinterest - there's loads more samples of new products and goodies on my Pinterest page, so make sure you stop by !

Have a great Bank Holiday weekend everyone - Cal xxx
