A New Sassy Stamper.

I am so thrilled to tell you all that I have a new team member Joanne (Jo).

Jo has been a cardmaker for a few years now and is, like me, so in love with Stampin' up! products that she has signed up as a Demonstrator.  Her enthusiasum is fabulous and I know we will be making a great team!

Jo has also set up her new Stampin' Up! blog where I am sure she will be posting up lots of wonderful projects for you to see.  Please do pop over to see her when you can.  Click Here for Jo's Blog

New Stampin’ Up! Catalogue Blog Hop

Well Hello there!

Thank you for joining in the New Catalogue Blog Hop.


Hopefully you’ve come from the lovely  Sarah's blog. If not don’t worry. There is a list at the bottom of everyone involved with all the blog addresses for you. So you can either start at the beginning or just carry on from here and work your way around until you get back here again.

We here we are, new catalogue time! And such an exciting time too!!! New stamp sets, new in-colors (OMG they are just gorgeous!!!), New Stampin’ UP! Sizzix Dies, FABRIC!!!!!! Love it all!!
So what projects do I have for you today? Well where to start?

Thing is, as  a Demonstrator we do get the opportunity to purchase select items a month prior to the new catalogue release. So, for the past month, myself like many other Demo’s, have been busy beavering away building up a stock of new projects to display and share! So do you like that idea?  You do?  Well get in touch I would be happy to chat to you about joining my team!

So here are a few for you….

First up is:

This is a gorgeous Cosmetic Purse made with the new Flirtatious Designer Fabric!  I haven’t sewn in many years nor had I ever put in a zip!!!  Well with this project not only was there a lot of sewing (mostly by machine) but also a zip!  Go Me!!

The green felt came from hobbycraft, it was some I already had in my stash.  I cut the flowers out using my Big Shot and the Fun Flowers Die.  Here’s the inside…

I love the way the fabrics compliment each other.  I’m going to have so much fun with these new fabrics. 
Ok back to cards.  My next project is a little notelet using the new, and very cute set Easy Events.
8 fabulous images and sentiments for nearly every occasion.  It’s such a great all rounder.  I love them all.

I stamped the image onto Whisper White card using Black Staz On ink.  The colour was added using my Blender Pens.  It never ceases to amaze me how these can pick up colour and then transfer them to your images.  A Basic Rhinestone to the middle flower and then mounted onto Lucky Limeade Cardstock and Wisteria Wonder Textured cardstock.

Ok OK I can’t leave the fabric alone.  I’m sorry.  But I have to show you this…

It’s a pin cushion!
DSC01925 - Copy
It started out as  a preserving jar, called a mason jar.  It’s got this fabulous raised design on the glass which I think is the company logo of the manufacturer.  It really does work well.  You can’t see it properly but I filled it with ribbon and cotton reels that all matched or co-ordinated with the Flirtatious Designer Fabric that I used to make the pin cushion on top.
Well I hope you like what you have seen today.  Please do leave a message.  I love to see what you all thought.

I’m sorry there’s not more but I have my New Idea Book & Catalogue Launch Open House today and I have had to save some projects as a surprise for the girls .  But I will be bringing more projects soon, so make sure you check back.

Now if you haven’t already grabbed a cuppa, go do so and then hop on over to the lovely Sarah's blog to see what delights she has in store.  I know I will be shortly!

It's Here!! it's Here!! It's Here!!!

Yes Yes Yes!

The new, and very very gorgeous 2011 - 2012 Idea Book and Catalogue is here!!

And OMG what a fabulous one it is too!!!  There is so so much in it!  I love it!  Can you tell??

There are loads more punches - Love punches, there are loads more sizzix dies - Gotta have them, there are new and totally gorgeous Designer Series Papers - Need Need Need them.  And then there is fabric!  The Designer Fabric is just stunning!

And whats more, there ae some fantastic new changes to oue hostess benefits!!!

I am really excited about this change! It makes our fabulous Hostess Reward program even more fabulous. Gone are the old Hostess Levels! 
Instead the hostess simply receives Hostess £’s  based on the totalling sales. She then is free to choose how to spend her money, either on hostess exclusive sets or on main catalogue items of her choice.  How cool is that?  This is so much more flexible and guess what else is really cool?  A total order of £150 will ensure you can still afford the most expensive hostess set in the book if you fancy it, so no longer  need you & your guests to spend £500+ to get a bigger more expensive set!

Check out the new Hostess Table...

 And did you notice that if your workshop sales total is over £300 you can earn an item out of the catalogue at an amazing 50% off!!  What will you by?

Look out for some truly fabulous promotions coming soon!

Thanks for stopping by.
