Christmas craft class was lots of fun

My Christmas craft class was lots of fun when I held it a couple of weeks ago, here is the projects that we made...

One large gift box, two small ones, four full sizes cards and two mini cards. Aren't they cute? I love the small square cards so much that I'm thinking of making that size for my own cards this year. Yes it's that time coming soon!

If you mised the class and would like to join us again, I am holding a class for Rainham Library in December - Saturday 3rd - get in touch with me if you would like more details.

Here's some of the group taking a look at my second hand craft sale that I added - I have so much stuff to get rid of at bargain prices as I'm having a clear out! If you are interested, let me know. I especially have a TON of patterned papers!

It's a lovely and comfortable venue that we use - carpeted and warm, the most important things - with nice toilets and kitchen! Plenty of space for us all, and it's always a giggle who had done something wrong or missed the last instructions. The most important thing is that we all go home with finished items at the end and have had a good time.

A mum and daughter hard at work...

Our kit let us loose using patterned papers, ornament stamps and inks, matching punches, border punches, ribbon - the list goes on. Everyone loves getting to experiment with different tools each time.

Some people have their own tools, others share, and it's always a different mix of people each time which is nice.

We even got a husband joining in at the end - to help his wife finish quicker apparently, personally I think the lure of the wonderful Stampin' Up! tools was finally getting to him...

Thanks for coming everyone! Come back tomorrow for the launch of the brand new Stampin' Up! catalogue... are you ready for it?? REALLY ready? There's some fantastic new goodies in it - get your Christmas wish lists ready for your loved ones....

Big Bold Birthday is retiring! Just £16.17 now...

This is one of my all time favourite stamp sets from Stampin' Up! I'm very sad to see it retire from the catalogue - but that does mean you can now get it at 40% discount - just
£16.17! This is only available while the stocks last though so if you really want this, contact me to order it today as it will probably sell out quite fast!

See my post click here for full details on the Stampin' Up! retirement list and how to order. It's such a versatile stamp set too. At least that does mean there is plenty of space in the new catalogue coming at the end of the month for new products - I have seen the new catalogue as demonstrators, we get the privilige of seeing it a month before customers, and oh my goodness - there are some lovely new stamp sets, gorgeous papers in there and a range of new ribbons coming too! My favourite.

If you would like to order a copy of the catalogue to be posted to you, I can post them out as soon as they arrive with me - see my link to the right of this blog to order yours today. I will share it online on October 1st - that is the day you can begin placing your orders.

The "Retirement List" is here!

It's an important time of the year in the Stampin' Up! calendar as the "retirement list" is finally here! Which also means - there will be a brand new Stampin' Up! catalogue very soon! So there is lots to share with you...

So... the "Retirement List" is here!

What is this, you might ask? Let me explain!

Every year Stampin' Up! release a new catalogue full of ideas and projects, and of course scrummy new craft goodies to buy. This means.... that some of the products in the current catalogue are retired when the new catalogue is released - but once they are gone, they are gone forever! On September 1st the retirement list is released - and it really is first come first served...

If there is anything in the current SU catalogue that is your absolute favourite and you don't want to run out, or on your must-have list but you haven't bought it yet, now would be the time to do it! Stock up on your favourites before it's too late.

And better still - some of the products are discounted up to 40%!

Click on the link to see the details. I'm sad to see some of my favourite sets go - but it does mean some of these are discounted by up to 40% and some accessories too! Don't forget most of the items in the Mini Catalogue will no longer be available after 30th September too.

We all love a bargain so if there's anything on the list that you want, contact me ASAP to place your order as some of the items sell out very fast, especially the discounted items. Once these items have gone, you will not be able to get them ever again so grab them while you can - whether it's your favourite stamp set, patterned paper or ribbon! I will place your orders as soon as your payment has cleared with me. Here is the current catalogue online which the list refers to:

And finally... The new Catalogue and Idea Book!

As demonstrators and customers alike, we are usually bursting at the seams waiting to see what the new Catalogue and Idea Book holds! The great news is that this year, we are allowed to send them out before October 1st! You can have a few weeks to drool over all the new items and decide what you want on your wish list (don't forget Christmas will be coming so make a list for your loved ones!) and then ready from October 1st, we can place your orders for you!
(This cover is just an example)

Do you want to be one of the first people in the UK to get your hands on a copy? With a RRP of £5.95, I am offering these to you, posted to you First Class Recorded Mail, for just £4.95! Just click on the Paypal link to the right and as soon as they arrive with me, I'll get them straight out to you. As you will already know, these are more than just a catalogue, it is now my favourite replacement for a craft magazine as there are so many wonderful projects in them each year, I've kept all of my old copies!

I am happy to accept Bank Transfers and Cheques too, so if you don't want to use Paypal, it doesn't mean you have to miss out!

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 it needs is six members, 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!

I think that's enough for today... let me know what you want to order!
