Apologies I didn't realise with so much to update that I had neglected the blog a little too long!!

I'll be back with another post hopefully attaching the retiring list which goes live in the early hours.
Any items not being carried forward from the current seasonal catalogue will only be available while stocks last.  I know of a few items that will be continuing but not the complete list yet.

Stampin' Up! are also having a year closeout sale with reductions off high stock items etc so lots to update shortly.

I will just share some goodies I made for a craft fair last week using the Popcorn Box thinlits:

Each one has a little foam bath bottle in - I saw them in M&S and the colours reminded me of card colours so I couldn't walk past!

24-hour sale

The items above are only available for 24 hours at these special prices though, some as bundles which are exclusive to this offer and will not be available once the 24 hours is up.

Other offers are available all week and there will be another 24 hour special next Monday.

Today's savings include 30% off both the Gift Bag and Gift Box punch board, just £12.60 each instead of £18 or you can treat yourself to a bundle of the enamel shapes or ombre pads for great savings too.

Time for presents

A little treat hides in this gift today made from a kraft bag which I've put through the Big Shot with the Cable Knit embossing folder.

It's finished with some Perfect Pine accessories!

And a quick notebook to remind you that it's last orders for the Stitched Shape Framelits!

More offers!

Hang on to your hats - lots of discounts coming your way!

From Monday 21st November there are some great offers available.
Click HERE to see the offers.

It is rather a daunting list but definitely worth a look.
Please note that the first few deals are specific to either 21st OR 28th November only as one day deals.  The other offers range from 10% up to 40% off items which are valid for the full week.

Also note that some items (as indicated) will be retiring and so are only available while stocks last.

If you have any queries or want to add to my order please let me know.

Highlights would be the Gift Bag or Gift Box punch board for just £12.60 on Monday, the Stitched with Cheer Project Kit that I had just bought is £13.05 instead of £21.75 and a few punches also have 40% off.

Last call for Stitched Framelits!

Don't forget there is still 25% of some stamp sets this month - more importantly if you have been thinking about the Stitched Shape Framelits they have been so successful that Stampin' Up! have run out - but don't panic.

Demand was so high to start with that they ordered some more which are on their way but because of the still high level of demand I will NOT be able to order them from 5pm on Monday 21st November.  Any ordered before then will be honoured but after that we aren't sure if we will be able to get any more before the official release date in June.

There are 12 dies in the set, 4 each of the circles, rectangles and squares for £27 - they really do add that extra 'something' to the shape.

If you can't wait until June let me know asap!

Events Update

Two dates for your diary today.

Firstly I will be at the Christmas Shopping Evening at Hinton St George on 25th November.
I'll have cards, gift bags & boxes, notebooks, picture frames etc to buy and also be doing a demo in case you are tempted with any Stampin' Up! goodies for a Christmas treat.

Then I will be at Yandles in Martock on Saturday 3rd December with lots of samples of their seasonal products for you to see.  If you would like to have a go I will be offering the chance to make 2 cards for £3.50 as well.

It's just a drop in so pop past if you can whether just for a look or to participate!

Another Beary Christmas

How cute is the bear today?

I've used Crumb Cake and Tip Top Taupe for the bear and Mint Macaron and Emerald Envy for all the other layers and embellishments.

Most excitingly I used my new Stitched Framelits to cut the bear out, a great effect.  The holly punch also cuts out the bow in the Baby Bear set.

The leaves are from Holly Berry Happiness and a little enamel dot for the berry, the sentiment is from Cookie Cutter Christmas.

I've also used Circle and Oval Layering Framelits for the layering - it's not until I list everything on here I realise how many things I've used!!  Maybe a challenge for another day will be to use less.

Secret Projects!

These are the 'secret' projects that I made for Stampin' Up! OnStage at Telford recently.

I'll share them individually eventually and as the new products get introduced.

I was lucky enough to get some new products to play with and have also used a few current items to highlight the new additions.

This card uses the Detailed Floral Thinlits already in the catalogue but uses a new Peekaboo Peach ombre ink pad that will be available in January.

Lots of orders just about ready to go out (a slight lack of delivery on my part due to vehicle failure but I'll contact people shortly).

I've used the Flurry of Wishes stamp set and matching Snow Flurry punch to make these little tags.

Colours used are Mint Macaron and Emerald Envy.

Sharing Creativity

We also did a team card swap for Telford and this was mine:

I've used the stamp sets Gorgeous Grunge, Petite Petals and Better than E-mail with the colours of Rich Razzleberry and Sweet Sugarplum.

I've used an Oval Layering Framelit to cut out the wording, a Decorative Label punch and some matching ribbon to finish.

Team Gifts

These are the team swaps I made for the Bloomin' Buds that went to Telford at the weekend.

They are a smaller version of something our lovely upline Jenny made earlier in the year.
I saw the little reminder pads in The Range a while ago and knew they were similar to some Stampin' Up! colours so I've covered some thick cardboard with Pool Party, Rich Razzleberry and Blushing Bride card to suit.

The stamp set used Butterfly Basics with an added Papillon Potpourri and Flower Shop (with matching punches!).

The clip has a magnet on the bike so they make a super present too.

Lots of Swaps!

These are my 100 teabag swaps!  And below you can see all the goodies I swapped them for.
I haven't properly looked through them myself yet.  When I have I'll take pictures of them in smaller groups so you can see them better too.

Aside from making swaps I have also been busy making items for the display in Telford.
I was lucky enough to be given some new (secret) products to make items with which has kept me busy.

Imagine my surprise when I realised my upline had also been doing the same but with different products!

Telford Swaps

As you read this I shall be busy swapping at Stampin' Up! On Stage in Telford.

These are my swaps this time:

They are little tea bag pockets.

For only being little they still used quite a list of supplies:

Thick Whisper White, Cucumber Crush & Real Red card stock
Cucumber Crush & Early Espresso ink
Balloon Celebration & Timeless Textures stamp sets
3/4", 1 1/4", 1 1/2" Circle, Scallop Tag Topper & Classic Label Tag punches
Cherry Cobbler Baker's Twine

Hopefully I'll have lots of nice swaps in return to share with you.

Simple Anniversary

A simple but effective non-Christmas card today!

I've used a piece of the Serene Scenery Designer Series Paper Stack which really is one of those packs you feel like keeping for 'best' as its all so lovely.

The sentiment is from Timeless Love and cut out with a couple of the Layering Oval Framelits.

An Enamel Shape and some White Perfect Accents to finish.

I'll have lots more actual samples after the weekend as I'm currently filling all my spare time making goodies for the Stampin' Up! On Stage on Saturday where we get to see the new Spring Catalogue and play with some new goodies.

Great Deals

As promised yesterday, here is the flyer showing which stamp sets are on offer with 25% off this month.

Some great deals if any of these sets take your fancy.

These sets have been chosen as they all co-ordinate size-wise with the new stitched framelit dies which are also available to buy this month.

Let me know if you have to have any of them!
