Two Step Stampin' Promotion

Just popping in to share a quick card with you using one of this months 20% off stamp sets.  This is a card that we made a while ago in our Greenhouse Garden class.  This is a class offered by Jenny Moors so I can't claim this beauty as my own design but how lovely is it.

The Greenhouse Garden set is one of the most popular Stampin' Up! Sets and you can see why above.

Remember that this offer is only available until the end of next Tuesday at this price, so don't wait too long.

Next Wednesday marks the launch of the Retirement list and I can't wait to see what sets won't be making it into the new catalogue.  As Demonstrators, I'll be able to see the new catalogue next Wednesday too - as you can imagine, there is lots of exciting things in the Demo world at the moment!

Have fun!

Have you missed me?

We've been away to Tenerife :)  And whilst it was my intention to pre-do some blog posts, time (as always) ran away with me before we went.

We had a fab time - the weather was great, the apartment was great and if everything hadn't have been so expensive, then the whole thing would have been fantastic!

Having been to Menorca two years ago, we knew that the Euro exchange rate had meant that lots of things were more expensive but whether we forgot or whether everything had just gone up, I'm not sure, but to say that every evening meal was between £80 - £110 for the four of us, needless to say we had breakfast and made lunch ourselves - and no we weren't eating caviar each night LOL!

But, we are back, nearly caught up with washing etc and I've got my work hat back on.

So where are things in the Stampin' Up! world.....

Well, there are just two weeks left to get the discounted 2 step stamp sets available in my below post, so don't wait much longer if any of those tickle your fancy :)

I am closing bookings for our September 4th day TOMORROW (Friday) so if you are thinking you still want to join us, I have five places left and that's it!  So, let me know asap if you want to join us - it's going to be a fab day and the classes are great (even if I say so myself :) ).

September 1st is a big day for SU Demos.  Not only do we see what will be retiring from the current catalogue, we will also get the "SALE" list which hasall retiring products and their discounted products. 

Also, on Sep 1st, we get our first glimpse of our new catalouge which is valid from October 1st!  I'm very excited to see what SU have in store for us for the coming year!  With the colour renovation happening with the launch of the new catalogue too, there will be lots of things retiring next month and lots of new things coming too - I can't wait!

What I would say about the retiring list though, is once it is out, then it really is whilst stocks last and then on October 1st, you can't order them again whether there are stocks left or not, so when I post the retirement list, if there is something that you like, don' leave it too long to order it!

I will also be listing three kits by mail on my website later today, so if you want to get your Christmas Cards started, then have a look here for more information on them later today!

Right, I think that is enough gabbling for now, I'll be back soon with more info.

Hope you are all enjoying the school holiday!

Have fun!

20% off stamp sets

Throughout August, you can buy some of the Stampin' Up! two step stamping sets with 20% off!

Just in case the above is too small to read, here is a list of the UK ones here:

Loads of Love – normally £18.95, offer price £15.16

Big Bold Birthday – normally £23.95, offer price £19.16

Trendy Trees – normally £12.95, offer price £10.36

Greenhouse Garden – normally £22.95, offer price £18.36

Something Sweet – normally £23.95, offer price £19.16

Tiny Tags – normally £18.95, offer price £15.16

Bird on a Branch – normally £14.95, offer price £11.96
Now these are some of my favourite stamp sets and I will be sharing some ideas on how to use them throughout the month.  Here is my first idea using the Loads of Love and Tiny Tags sets:

I have used the To The Nines Speciality paper together with some twine and some of the Playground buttons.  The dots have been added around the top of the card with the Mat Pack and Paper Piercing too. This truck comes with some accessories to go in the back of the truck together with some greetings and even has an accessories set to give you more options too.  The Tiny Tags set is still one of my favourite sets to add that little greeting or small bit of interest to most projects.

If you would like to get any of these stamp sets or indeed, any other Stampin' Up! bits, then please get in touch, I am placing orders all the time and can normally get your order to you within the week.

Right then, I'm getting on with bits and bobs.  I hope the sun is shining where you are and you are enjoying the weekend / school holidays.

Have fun!
