Jewellery …

Yes, jewellery !  In the new Mini Catalogue, Stampin Up! are selling an amazing new range of jewellery called Simply Adorned.
So what is in the range? 
There are 4 different sized charms, which are the same as a lockets  Each one opens out, and you can insert a stamped design, photos or anything else you want.  The tempered glass is surrounded by a nickel frame which allows you to display images on both sides.  Each comes with a sturdy insert that you can use as a size guide or to stop flat pieces of artwork moving around.
Simply Adorned Charms
You can easily swap inserts allowing you to create stunning inserts to coordinate with what ever you are wearing.  They attach with a lobster clip which makes them easy to fix to a chain, a handbag, a phone, a key ring or anything else you might want to attach them to!
Making your inserts means that you can personalise each charm/locket, and my necklace has received lots of lovely comments.  You can have a piece of artwork on one side, and a photograph on the other !  The larger Charms even give you room for rhinestones or pearls. 
I’ve also added ribbon to my chain to co-ordinate with my black Stampin Up! t-shirt, together with a crown and key (the other charms in the Simply Adorned Range).
Each charm is also presented in a classy chocolate gift box making it the perfect present.
Simply Adorned 4Necklacesimply adorned 5 Bracelet
The Simply Adorned range includes two stunning chains, each with an easy to use toggle clasp. The chains come in two lengths, 20cm for the bracelet and 61 cm for the necklace.  Again, these are presented in a beautiful chocolate coloured box.
These stunning large charm gems are the perfect addition to the Simply Adorned range, or they look fabulous added to handbags or key rings
Simply Adorned Baubles
There are four different Baubles to choose between, a black crystal, a clear crystal, a pretty pink crystal and the stunning Vanilla Pearl.
All in all, this chain and bracelet, together with the adornments make a stunning gift for anyone – and combined with baubles, keys and crown charms, make a truly individual piece of work for someone – or for you !!
If you buy one of the locket charms and a necklace, then my FREE offer to you, is to send it with an original piece of artwork designed by me.
Would you like to place an order ? then contact me on or 07799 250981. 
Remember – these are only in the MINI catalogue, and there’s no guarantee that they will make it into the main catalogue.  So think about the events you have coming up this year, and get prepared in advance – or get your family and friends to prepare in advance !

Sale-a-Bration and Training

I recently went to a Demo-only training event with the fabulously talented Julie Kettlewell. 
When we go to any training events, one of the best parts of the day, is when everyone swaps their ‘swaps’, and also when we make some ‘make and takes’.  Over the next few days, I hope (if my camera plays ball), to be able to share some of those samples with you, which I hope in turn, gives YOU some ideas on how to use your stash.
The following are the ‘make and takes’ we made on the day, which show some of the FREE goodies that you can earn during Sale-a-Bration.  Don’t forget that you can earn these papers and stamps for FREE.  For every £45 you order, you get to select a free gift from the Sale-a-Bration leaflet.
If you would like to place an order, then please contact me on or 07799 250981.
Happy Crafting !

    It is here - and there's a couple of offers !

    Spring Mini Catalogue
    Today is the launch of the NEW Spring MINI Catalogue !!!!  YAY !!!!  You can view the catalogue by clicking the link on the right of my blog.

    Simply Adorned Jewellery

    Simply Adorned Charm
    When you view the new catalogue, you will notice the new range of Stampin UP! jewellery called Simply Adorned. 

    As always, when we view products online or in a catalogue it doesn't always give a clear impression of the item, and this can be said for the new Simpy Adorned range.  The quality of the Simply Adorned chains is outstanding, and the Simply Adorned Baubles and Charms are absolutely stunning in 'real life'.

    My offer to my BLOG readers, is that if you purchase a Simply Adorned Chain and Charm (2.5 x 3.2 OR 2.5 x 2.5),  then I will send you a double sided stamped image to put inside it.  As well as being able to 'house' small photographs, you can also put a piece of your own artwork inside  - how impressive will that be if you are giving it as a gift ? 

    ALSO - for every person who spends £30 or more, up until Friday 20th January, I will put your names into a hat, and will select someone to win a Simply Adorned Necklace or Bracelet with choice of Bauble, Crown or Key.

    There is also the NEW Create a Cupcake stamp set and punch - how easy is it now to make those 'forgotten' Birthday Cards ... banners .... invitations ..... 

    Talking of punches, there are TWO more NEW punches - the postage stamp punch (which is really really cute) and the new SCALLOP circle punch the size of which is 2 3/8" (6cm) (see main catalogue page 116-118) for co-ordinating punches.

    Oooh I can't go without mentioning the NEW Spice Cake fabric, papers, stamp set and co-ordinating buttons - lush, lush !

    As always, if you would like to place an order, then please contact me on or 07799 250981.

    Happy Crafting !

    DON'T FORGET - the Rochdale Crop is on this Saturday 7th January - you MUST confirm your place with me as we are down to limited places.
