New Catalogue Sneak Peak!

Well, I've had so much fun playing with some of my old favourite stamp sets that are retiring - but I have to confess, I also had a bit of a play with some AWESOME new products and especially the new In Colours. I am totally in love with them!

I can't wait to show them to you in real life - hopefully at one of my New Catalogue Parties next week - either Monday 1st or Saturday 6th July - which one are you coming to?

In the meantime - here's a sneak peak of FOUR new products, as well as THREE new In Colours. Can you tell me what they are?

You'll notice that the Butterfly Punch, Tiny Flower Punch and Rhinestones are still the same - but what is new?

You are very welcome to leave a comment below with what products you think are included, and hopefully you can come and see this card in real life, along with many others, and make one or two for yourself at one of my New Catalogue Parties next week.

See you then!


Button Buddies - more old favourites!

Well, I promised more Button Buddies cards - we really did have fun with these last week!

As we are undergoing a Colour Refresh with the new Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue, all our containers of buttons that relate to colour families are retiring and we are getting all new buttons.

Now I love buttons and I tend to hoard them, and hold onto them possessively, but I seriously need to make room for NEW buttons, so last week, I grabbed out all the old lovely rainbow of colours (years worth!!) and tipped them all into a bowl to share with my Stamp Club ladies on Thursday night, and I took a big handful to share with my workshop ladies on Friday night.

The buttons just really take the Button Buddies card to the next level don't they? How cute is that and how much does it "Pop" with those lovely buttons adorning the centre of each flower?

With this card and the next, I liked the simplicity and the lovely bright colours so much, and since neither of these are going to go onto my display board (the stamp set is retiring so there's no point displaying it), I decided to leave greetings off these two until such time as an occasion arises where I'd like to give them to someone. Then I can just stamp a sentiment, add a background layer and attach it to the card front.

How cute are those snails!!

These two cards also feature our Designer Series Paper - most of which is retiring and many packs of which are discounted 20% or even 40%.

Here are the retiring lists - one of stamps and one of accessories. Make sure you check them and place your orders as soon as possible.

I'll be at Chirnside Park shopping centre this Friday 9am-5pm, come down and see what we are doing - you might even get a bit of a sneak peak at some new stuff! LOL

Hope to see you there! And don't forget to check my Special Events pages for the New Catalogue Parties which are being held next week!

Button Buddies - an old favourite

With the retiring list finishing in a few days, my lovely friend Wendy who hosted Stamp Club as well as a workshop last week, asked if I could demonstrate some projects using the ultra-cute Button Buddies stamp set.

Yes Please!! It's such a fun set!

It's a great set for really simple, quick note cards. The notes above are 3"x 3". There are 8 stamps in the set.

Here are all the images in Button Buddies and if you click on the picture it will take you directly to the set in the "Retiring Section" on my online shop.

We also made some cute pocket envelopes with a gift tag, using another product which is sadly retiring, the Petite Pocket Bigz Die.

You'll notice a couple of other items in those photos which are also sadly saying goodbye. The Lucky Limeade Bakers Twine and the Melon Mambo Striped Organdy Ribbon.

You won't find the Striped Organdy Ribbon on the Retiring List, as it's actually in our Seasonal Mini Catalogue which ENDS SUNDAY 30TH JUNE!! So, while you are checking the Retiring List, don't forget to check the Seasonal Mini Catalogue because once the catalogue has ended, these items are no longer available to order.

So just a quick reminder - the Seasonal Mini Catalogue ends on Sunday 30th June and the Retiring List from the Annual Catalogue finishes on Monday 1st July. Don't miss out on items you love - make the time to check now, as some items are already sold out and will not be re-stocked and, after Monday none of the retiring list items will be available.

I'll be back tomorrow with more of our Button Buddies creations.
