Moving house and planning a wedding has taken up all of my time - and I get married next week! So I may come back and post as and when I craft as I will still be doing it as a hobby and I hope once I am settled into my new house and taken over a room as a craft room (!) that I will be back to crafting. And I may share some wedding pics ;o)
In the mean time, you can find inspiration on my facebook page by clicking 'like' - I will be updating that as and when I craft. I hope you are all still enjoying your crafting.

This sentiment stamp set is my favourite, though I am desperate to get these patterned papers too.
This is a great universal set - for all occasions.

You can view both the main catalogue and the new mini catalogue here
So it’s January 4 – and this year Stampin’ Up! have decided to treat us in the new year with the new mini catalogue much earlier than usual! You no longer have to wait until April to choose lots of new goodies, this new mini catalogue is available from today, alongside everything in the main catalogue still.
My favourites and a few of the things you MUST check out are:
•P5 - ‘Swirls and Curls Verses’ is a definite favourite – only available to be earned as a hostess gift – see below how to get this for free!
• P7 - ‘Simply Adorned’ for those of you who fancy trying making some jewellery with your papercrafts!
•P10 - ‘Spice Cake’ new designer series patterned papers – love the colours on these and the matching fabrics are gorgeous!
•P15 – ‘Blossom Party Originals Die’ – flowers can be used on so many different designs!
•P20 – ‘Perfect Postage’ stamps and matching punch are going on my must have list….
•P22 – More beautiful cupcakes and a matching punch this time – wahoo!
• And finally – maybe I’m considering the wedding set on p21 – great for wedding and anniversary cards and as I’m making my own invites this year, maybe I’ll chose that set. Hmmm.
I could go on but there’s lots to browse. If you want to place an order simply email over your list to me and I will confirm the order and then payment with you.
Don’t forget - if your order comes to £150 or more (this can be you and a few friends clubbing together to put an order in) – you get the full hostess benefits which starts from £25 worth of free goodies from the catalogue! The more you spend, the more free items you can choose (see the front of the catalogue for details), it works just the same as it does with the main catalogue and your orders can combine between the mini catalogue and the main catalogue. The catalogue says that you are the host of a stampin up party workshop but you can also just club orders together as friends as a 'virtual party' to get the same benefits, without the party!
If you want to see lots of great ideas made using these items there is a blog hop going on – where you visit one blog, then keep following the links to the next ones, each blog will show a different great idea for how to use these items. You can start with my Stampin' Up! team leader, Natalie - here
Let me know if you have any questions and happy browsing,

I am teaching a Christmas craft class at Rainham Library on Saturday 3rd December and you are all welcome! It will follow a similar format to my usual classes, we will be making a trio of cards pictured above and the class is two and a half hours long. Come and join us to get in the festive season!
We will be making a trio of Christmas cards using stamping, punches and embellishments (suitable for all levels of crafters). The details are:
Sat 3rd December 2011
11am - 1.30am
£15 per person
The deadline for bookings is Saturday 19th November.
Please note - this is a class run for Rainham Library therefore the bookings are taken directly through the library, not through me.
To book your place:
Call 01708 434970
Payment must be made to secure your place - you can pay at any Havering library or discuss with them over the telephone payment options.
There is a limited number of places on this class and it is being advertised through all of the Havering libraries so I would definitely recommend booking early to avoid disappointment!
For details of the library and its location click HERE
Hopefully you can make it, it should be good fun and just in time for the festive month of December!

I'm running short of time at the moment so I might just try posting my photos of cards even if I can't give you a good description. Made using a stamp set from Stampin' Up of course and all the inks and coordinating ribbons etc too.
Made a long wish list from the new catalogue yet? I'll be doing my Christmas wish list service again this year so if you want to send me your wish lists then get your loved ones to contact me - I can arrange for them to buy you lovely SU products for the festive season, what more could a girl want ;o)

The tree image above is from a brand new stamp set in the new Stampin' Up! Idea Book & Catalogue called Forever Young, which is easy to gloss over on first glance at the idea book but it's a really pretty set. I know certain members of my family are going to love this card. It was one of the cards that we made at the Stampin' Stars Team training on Saturday too inspired by Kimberley Van Diepen on her blog (US Stampin' Up! Demonstrator). The sentiment is from a great set called Petite Pairs. It's a set with lots of greetings that can either be used individually or together as a pair, so it means you can either split the greeting on the front of the card or put one on the outside and one on the inside!
There is also some new patterned paper on there too. This sheet is from the Timeless Portrait Designer Series Paper. These papers, together with this stamp set, form part of the Timeless Portrait Suite of products which also includes the Parlour Prints background stamp used below too!
Ordering and spreading the cost
So... take a long hard look at the brand new catalogue and send me your orders! You can email me or leave a comment here for me to contact you. You can make your payment to me by internet transfer, paypal, cheque or credit card (over the phone).
If there is alot in the catalogue that you would like, and would prefer to spread the cost of your items over several months but still get the benefit of the hostess freebies then get in contact with me about my Stampers Six club - all I need is six members (I have one already waiting), committed to spending £25 each per month for six months, and you will get the free hostess benefits! At the start of the six months you also get a catalogue for free!
My next craft class is being held at Rainham Library on Saturday 3rd December. Add the date to your diaries!
Don't forget - FREE P&P on all orders direct to your door for the next 7 days until midnight Friday- saving £4.95! Let me know if you have any questions.
