They're Here!

The new Idea Book And Catalogue, that is!

I've had a quick look through and thought I'd share my excitement at what the pages hold.

There are some lovely new Designer Series Papers for a start, which are ideal whether you're a card-maker, or scrap-booker. All the previous ones are retiring, although they're still available for a short time while stocks last.

There is textured 12" paper available in each of the Colour Families, as well as the Classic (Dye) Stampin' Spots, mini versions of the standard ink pads, that come in a box.

As for the punches there are Boho Blossoms and a Scallop Border punch, as well as others that are new to the UK.

What else? Stamps of course!
Lots of new ones with matching wheels. And... some fabulous hostess sets. These are sets that can't be bought, only earned according to sales. The Level 1 sets are earned when sales reach between £150 and £199.99. In addition to the free stamp set, you would earn £15 in free goodies of your choice from the catalogue! Could you get together 4 or 5 friends who share your love of stamping, whether for cards or scrapbook pages? Why not invite them to your home for a Stampin' Up! party? I'll come along and demonstrate some of the goodies that I've mentioned and then everyone gets to play and make something to take home. I'll tailor the party to suit your skill levels and make creativity fun for you all.

If you don't have room for a party, get together a group order with your friends and I'll send each of you a kit with instructions so you still get to play and have fun.

The catalogue is even cheaper than last year, at £4.95. This will be refunded if your first order is for £35 or more. It will be free if you would like to hostess a Stampin' Up! party, or join one of my Budget Clubs, such as Stamper's Six.

Well, what are you waiting for? E-mail me at to order your copy of the new Idea Book And Catalogue. My first consignment arrived this afternoon and they're waiting to find new homes!

Thanks for looking!

Just Waiting...

...for my order of the NEW Idea Book And Catalogues to arrive! I've also ordered some NEW stamp sets including a Christmas one. Now that we're into September it's OK to mention Christmas, before then is a big no, no, for me!

Would you like a new catalogue, too? Just e-mail me at and let me know and I'll earmark one just for you!

Thanks for looking!

Comings And Goings

A year after Stampin' Up! launched in the UK, the eagerly anticipated 2008-2009 Idea Book And Catalogue is soon to be released. Weeks of speculation about what it may, or may not contain will end and we'll get to feast our eyes on the goodies enclosed within! My hope and expectation is that the catalogue will be even bigger and better than the first one!
Can you tell that I'm excited at the prospect?

I know that quite a few items haven't made it to the new Idea Book And Catalogue and that they have been earmarked for retirement. Take a few moments to check the list and see if the stamp set that you've had your eye on, or the set of Designer Series Papers that you've promised yourself is on the list. If it is, you'll need to act fast as they won't be available after 30th September and supplies are limited.
Similarly, if there is a Hostess set you'd love you'll need to book a party date well before the end of September.

If you'd like to order some goods, or a copy of the new Idea Book And Catalogue please contact me at

Remember that the retiring items are making way for new ones, along with a whole new selection of Hostess sets. Book your party now, while I still have a few appointments free.

Thanks for looking!
