New product showcase - Spring Summer catalogue 2017

Hi again everyone,

Following on from yesterday's post, I thought you might like the chance to see some of the new products "in action". It is so difficult to decide what to show first as there are so many gorgeous new goodies, but I've selected some of my favourites. These are videos from Stampin' Up but subscribe to my blog to be sure you catch my videos on how to use these products over the next few weeks.

Hope I've managed to whet your appetite.

New Spring Summer 2017 catalogue coming soon

Good afternoon, everyone. I hope you are enjoying your time in the "no man's land" that occupies the days between Christmas and New Year? These days are actually my favourites in the whole festive season. Some down time to spend with family and friends without the pressure and stress of the "big day". Today I have been for a 4 mile walk with friends, followed by a coffee as a reward once we reached the end!

I just wanted to pop in here today to remind you all that it will very soon be time for the release of the new 2017 Spring Summer Occasions catalogue. From January 4th you will be able to order from this catalogue which is full of fabulous products. As a demonstrator I have been able to order some products early and I can't wait to start showcasing some of the samples I have made. To add to the excitement, at the same time as the release of the new catalogue, the new Sale-a-Bration promotion will begin. This is Stampin Up's most popular promotion of the year and offers everyone the chance to earn free products. For every £45 spent, you will be able to choose one free product from the Sale-a-Bration leaflet - and there are some lovely products to choose from - stamp sets, patterned paper packs, ribbon and more - you are going to want them all. What is remarkable about this promotion is that these items are available ONLY as free items with a qualifying order - they are never offered for sale.  

Don't forget that if you'd like a free copy of the new catalogue and the Sale-a-bration leaflet, you only need to contact me and I'll pop one straight in the post!

I'll leave you with a few sneak peeks of makes made with some of favourites of the free items.

Will be back soon with more details. One of my New Year's Resolutions is to blog more regularly so be sure to keep watching!

Cookie Cutter treat pouch

As I promised in my last post, I have now made a short You Tube tutorial on how to make these treat pouches. Just click on the image below. As it's my first attempt at making a video tutorial, it isn't perfect but it was such a steep learning curve that now I'm prepped and ready for the next one.

Hope you enjoyed the video - it cuts off quite quickly at the end as the memory card was full, but what I was trying to say was that the link to my online shop is in the information below the video. Or if you would like to purchase any of the products used, just click on the links below.

Back soon,

Holly Berry happiness

Hi there everyone,

Can you believe that there are only 8 more sleeps until Christmas Day? December has gone so quickly this year. And here am I, still finishing of my Christmas cards. I think I am done now!

These were the last few cards I made - totally CASEd from the Autumn/Winter catalogue. Very quick and easy but I'm really pleased with them.

 I still haven't finished my Christmas crafting though. Have already made over 30 of these little pouches.....

but have several more to make. Hope to be back with a little tutorial on how I made these fairly soon, if I can get the technology to work!

Stampin Up - not just cards!

Now that it's December I'm finally getting around to thinking about Christmas presents - I know, I bet you're much more organised! For me, one of the best parts is the packaging and Stampin Up makes that so easy. 

This will be how I package all my gifts this year - plain brown paper, real red ribbon and tags made with the Cookie Cutter stamp set and bundle.

This one is a smaller box, wrapped in paper from the Candy Cane Lane set. The bow is made from real red cardstock using the bow maker punch.  

And here they are together. Can't wait to get my tree up and start arranging this pretty gifts underneath it. 

If you'd like to package your gifts like this, use the links below to buy the things you need or contact me and I'll get them to you with no P&P costs!
