New Catalogue

Hooray!! The new Stampin' Up! Idea Book & Catalogue starts tomorrow!!  These two cards are made using new stamp sets and designer paper featured in the new catalogue.

 If you want to see more there are 2 blog hops planned for this month. The First is tomorrow 1st Sept and features stamp sets and products from the new book. I wont be taking part in this one, but a number of people on my blog list are so you can access it from here. The second one will feature the Big Shot and the new accessories that go with it. It is on the 18th Sept and I will be taking part in that one.

There are prizes of new products from the catalogue for one lucky person who comments on every blog. There is a limit of 25 blogs in each hop. Competition is not open to SU demos, so for everyone else grab a cuppa and take a look!

One before I go away for a week. The layout came from a magazine, I just liked the look of it so thought I would give it a go. I got the shadow effect by stamping the dark colour first then offsetting with the lighter colour. I used the stamp-a-ma-jig to line it up properly.

Project Recipe
Stamp set: Inspired by Nature
Cardstock: Not quite navy, baja breeze, kraft and confetti white
Ink: not quite navy and baja breeze
Accessories: Urban garden dsp, scalloop circle punch and 13/8", 11/4" circle punches, polka dot embossing folder and the Big Shot.

Don't forget it is only a couple of weeks til the end of both the current Idea Book and Catalogue and The Autumn mini. The full retirement list is on the SU Website so make sure you take a look.

PS I have my copy of the new catalogue and it is so good :)

One Last Chance

That is what Stampin' Up! are calling the retired list this year. This is your Last Chance to purchase many items from the 2009/2010 Idea Book & Catalogue. Each year SU! produces a lovely new catalogue full of new stamps, colours, accessories and some of your favourites from the previous year. But to make room for the new it is out with the old! So check out the Last Chance list here.

A number of items are discounted 25 - 50% off so make sure you hunt for the bargains. And dont forget the Colour Renovation means alot of the cardstock and inks are retiring too. I expect the re-inkers to sell out quickly.

These items are available until the end of August or while stocks last. To cover this I am placing individual orders as I receive them. Postage will be $5.95 on orders of less than $100 (5% on orders over $100) and will be posted straight to your door. This is to avoid any disappointment in case stocks run out. I will try and keep you updated if stocks sell out or run low.

So email or phone me as soon as possible to place an order!
