The Joys of Being Single …

… well these stamps certainly enjoy being single !  Not sure what you think, but I think THESE stamps are absolutely lush – love, love, love the glasses stamp !

Which one is your favourite ?

BEST of 25 …

To celebrate Stampin Up! 25th Anniversary, they have produced a series of stamps called the Best of 25 years.  There will be a different set each month, and this is the first set ..

Best of flowers2

There will be at least ONE ‘never before seen’ stamp in the collection each month !  I can’t wait to see the rest of the series !

End of an Era ?

We’ve nearly come to the end of the current Main catalogue, which was the first catalogue that brought us in line with our US sisters.  IF you still have anything left on your wish lists, then please contact me as soon as possible to place an order, as this current catalogue retires on the 1st July !

Start of Something New

But that does mean that we are due a NEW Main Catalogue ! YAY !  This new catalogue launches on the 2nd July, and if you would like a copy, then I am sending them out for free, although I am charging £3 postage.  This will be refunded to you against any order placed within 3 months.

I just know that you will NOT be disappointed with the AMAZING NEW products contained in the new catalogue.  There are NEW stamp sets with matching framelits and punches.  There are 13 NEW scrapbook designer papers, NEW ribbons, NEW buttons, NEW dies … seriously, this catalogue takes your breath away.

And here are some more sneaky peaks … I made this series of cards after seeing some similar ones on Pinterest.  I loved the colour scheme, so CASE’d the colours using our NEW In colours.

As always, if you would like to place an order, or if you have any questions or queries, then please contact me on

Time is …

… running out if you want to order from the Spring/Summer Mini Catalogue AND the main catalogue – You only have until the end of the month to get your orders in.   My favourites from this mini catalogue have been :-

  • The rose trim (how will I cope without it)
  • Oh hello stamp and framelit set – brilliant for scrapbooking
  • Tea for Two papers
  • Hexagon embossing folder
  • Hearts a Flutter stamp and framelit set
  • Small butterfly punch
  • Secret Garden stamp and framelit set
  • That’s the Ticket stamp set and punch

And I’d be here all evening if I mentioned my favourites from the MAIN catalogue !!! ha ha ha !

I have really enjoyed both of these catalogues, and working with the amazing papers, stamps, embossing folders, framelits (just how fab are they) ?

Anyway, I’ll finish off (for now), with this layout using the Patio Party designer series papers from the MAIN catalogue.  I wasn’t too sure of these when I first bought them, but I couldn’t tell you how many packs I’ve gone through …  eek !

As always, if you would like to place an order, or book a place on any of my classes or retreats, or if you would like more details on becoming a Demonstrator, then please contact me on

TWO additional offers today …

Best of 25 Years Stamp Sets
As part of Stampin Up!s 25-year anniversary celebration, they're bringing back some of our favourite stamp images from the last quarter century and combining them into five sets, which will be released one set per month, until October. Even better, along with some great classic images, each "Best of" set will also include a never-before-seen image!
Check back here monthly to download a flyer for a new Best of stamp set, and be sure to share it with your friends !
Some things to remember:
  • All Best of stamp sets will include 3-5 images, including a never-before seen image, and will be priced at £13.95.
  • While we are releasing just one Best of stamp set per month (with a new theme each month) until October, all of the Best of sets will be available until March 31, 2014.
  • A new flyer will be released every month for each new Best of set.
  • All Best of stamp sets are available in Clear-Mount only.

Single stamps 1 USE
A few months ago Stampin Up! did a survey asking what people thought of the idea of being able to buy single stamps instead of a whole set. The response was so positive that they experimented it with the North American Market.  As it was so successful that they decided to try it out in our market too!
From now until 31 August 2013 (or while supplies last) I am so excited to offer you five single-image stamps for you to choose from!
  • You can find the stamp item numbers on the flyer.
  • These won't be sent in our typical cases or packaging; they'll be packaged in cello bags. If you'd like a case for your stamp, you can buy our Clear-Mount Stamp Cases that come in packs of four.
  • This offer is available for clear-mount stamps only.
  • The stamps won't come with a Clear-Mount Block, and you'll need to purchase a block separately if you don't already have one. The recommended block sizes can be found on the flyer.
  • There's no limit on how many stamps you can purchase.
  • These stamps are only available until 31 August 2013, so get them while you can!

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