Wood Words Customer Thank You card

Oh my! Well my plans haven't exactly gone to plan this weekend. I am visiting my parents in Norfolk and had everything ready to write my blog posts for the days I am away. And then bam! I have been struck down with a horrible cold and am feeling really rough and sorry for myself. With the result that I have been confined to bed and my parents are looking after me rather than vice versa! So many apologies for being missing in action!

 Any way I have struggled up from my bed to post this little card.


Wood Words thank you Stampin Up

I needed a couple of extra thank you cards for my customers this month and I needed them in a hurry. So this little card was conjured up. Super quick to make but super pretty. I started with a Bermuda Bay card blank (14.8cm x 10.5cm - 6 ins x 4 1/8 ins). Then took a panel of Whisper White (14.3cm x 10cm - 5 3/4 ins x 3 7/8 ins) and stamped the floral stamp from the Wood Words set twice across the middle. I then stamped and punched out the Thank You stamp from Accent Blooms in Bermuda Bay and mounted it in the centre on dimensionals. 


Wood Words Thank You Stampin' Up!

So, short and sweet from me today. Hopefully by the time you read this I'll be feeling better. But for now I'm back off to bed! 

Hope your weekend has been better than mine. Hopefully be back to business this week!

Even more Saleabration FREE items to choose from - available from today!

Hi everyone,

Today I’m very excited to announce that Stampin Up have released the second phase of Sale a Bration products! From today there are three new items to choose from when you spend £45 or £90. That means there are now 15 items to choose from. I have listed all the FREE products currently available in the Product List below so that you can see everything in one place. You can also see them when ordering by clicking the "Saleabration" tab. Or the links to the PDF leaflets are in the right hand side bar of this page. 


Saleabration 2019 Stampin' Up!



So let's get started with the new stuff! First of all we have a brand new, exclusive stamp set, called All Adorned. which is free with a £45 (€60) order. So easy to create pretty cards with this set and if you own a Stamparatus it is perfect for lining up the images and mirror stamping.
All Adorned Stampin Up
We also have a beautiful, new embossing folder called the Country Floral Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  This is so pretty and produces a really deep and defined embossing. I think this will be a really popular item so if you'd like it, don't hang around - the ribbon from the first release sold out really quickly and is no longer available. Would hate you to miss out if that happens with this item. 
Copuntry Floral Stampin Up
Both the above items are free with a £45 spend.

The next bundle of stamp set and coordinating Designer Series Paper is FREE with a £90 spend.  You get both items free when you spend £90 - the Painted Seasons stamp set and .the Painted Seasons Designer series Paper.   
Painted Seasons Stampin Up
The other exciting piece of news is that in March, Stampin' Up! are offering limited time exclusive products to our customers which coordinate with the Sale-a-bration free items. This means we have some dies coming which you can buy in March which cut around the stamped images from Painted Seasons and some of the images on the designer series paper. How fab is that? These dies will not be free but will be available to purchase throughout March. So if you place a £90 order in February and choose the Painted Seasons Bundle as your free item, you can purchase exclusive dies available in March.  See a quick video here from Stampin Up to introduce you to these exclusive products.

The other coordinating products which are available in March (1-31) and which are exclusively designed to coordinate with our Sale-a-bration offering are dies to go with the So Hoppy Together stamp set, .the Hello Cupcake stamp set and the Lasting Lily stamp set.  There is also a brand new punch style and a sentiment stamp set.
I will share more about these when they become available for sale,  but I wanted you to know to help you when deciding what to choose!

The Project Share Project 2019 Week 7 - Saleabration Freebies

Hi everyone,

Hello there and thank you for joining me again today for our next instalment of the Project Share Project, when I get the chance to showcase the amazing work of some of my fellow Stampin' Up! demos.
Just ahead of NEW products for Saleabration being released tomorrow, this week I am showcasing projects made with the current FREE Saleabration stamp sets.

First of all Heather, who blogs at Stamp with Nellie, has used the "By the Bay" set which has three detailed line drawing images as well as some sentiments. Heather has coloured the image so prettily.


Do pop over to Heather's blog and read more HERE.

Next is Verity of InkyButterfly, who has used the "Lasting Lily" stamp set for her card.


So lovely for those difficult to make sympathy cards. Read more about this card over on Verity's blog HERE.

Lastly today is Helzie who blogs at SlimmandStylish. Helzie has used another one of the FREE Saleabration items - "So Hoppy Together" - for her card.


These little frogs are so cute. Read more about Helzie's card over on her blog HERE.

And that's another Project Share Project done. 

And if any of those projects have inspired you to do some crafty shopping, don't forget that now is a great time to do so - spend £45 and get any of these stamp sets absolutely FREE.

Team training event - such a great day!

Hi everyone,

Slightly different post from me today but I want to tell you all about what I was up to on Sunday. I attended one of our Team Training events. This was organised by my upline's, upline - Michelle Last whose team is known as the Pinkies. Such a great day and do you know? - If you joined my team you would be able to come along to the next one too!


The day was held in a large room in a hotel in Central Milton Keynes. This is the room with everyone busy either crafting or looking at displays. There were 55 demos there altogether, all having a wonderful time.


Here we all are - not sure if we managed to squeeze everyone into the photo!

One of the best things about the day is the amount of inspiration around the room - Product Spotlights, Card Samples, Make and Takes - so much to take in! Here are some of the samples on display:



And for me, one of the best things is getting together with some of my fellow demos. Here I am with others from the Pootlers team.


And of course with my good friend Gez aka Nigezza.


There are different activities going on throughout the day. Swaps of course - I'll be showing more of them another day. Crafting - everything needed to create two beautiful Make & Take projects was included. A huge raffle with loads of prizes. And classes (which are optional). One of the classes this year was to make a gorgeous laminated traveller's journal. And the other was led by Paula Gorry, who is the Stampin Up manager for the whole of the UK. Here she is in full flow, giving us tips on how to improve our Stampin Up businesses.


And of course, last but not least, there was cake!


This masterpiece was made by Keila Calver a very talented fellow demo. Look at that gorgeous cake topper using our "Happy Birthday" die. And yes, it tasted every bit as delicious as it looks.

So that's a quick glimpse into our Team Training Day - just one more perk of being part of the Stampin' Up family.

If this sounds like something you would like to be part of, please get in touch and we can have an informal chat about all the other benefits. Joining Stampin' Up! really was one of the best decisions I've ever made!

Bye for now,
