Daisies!

I also seemed to start something off last week with a new picture I made and have used as a cover photo on my Facebook page.

On page 183 of the Annual Catalogue there is a list of all our 50 colours mixed up to show how well all the families blend and tone together and I wanted to do something with it, so I made this:

, It does show off the colours nicely doesn't it?
Each 'flower' is made from 3 of the daisy punches (so popular we currently can't order them because demand has far outstripped supply) and the centre is one of the matching stamps, stamped in the same colour and punched out with a circle punch.

I've made some smaller versions too I'll pop back with.

July offers

And it's straight back to my latest Christmas card because Stampin' Up! have some offers for you this month.

The first one is that if you spend £45 this month you get a Bonus Days code for £4.50 that you can spend with Stampin' Up! during August (this applies to each multiple of £45 you spend).

The most exciting offer though is a joining offer, we all want to join again.

For your £99 joining fee you get £195 worth of Stampin' Up! goodies, how fab is that?

Firstly you get to choose £130 worth of whatever you want from the catalogue, then you get a free Carols for Christmas stamp set which is brand new and will be in the Autumn/Winter catalogue, this a card I've made from my set:


These are the stamps in the set:


There is also a co-ordinating thinlit set and you can buy this within your £130 or get it from next month.

The other pack you get free contains a pack of grid paper, a bone folder, 2 x 'D' blocks for your stamps, a pair of paper snips and a snail adhesive.

It's pretty good isn't it?  So if you need to add to your stash and want lots extra for your money this is the way to do it.  
If you have any questions let me know - remember there is no obligation to do anything at all after 'joining' you can just buy your initial pack and that's you done so there is nothing to lose.

Christmas catch up

Since my London visit I went travelling again and didn't get to set up posts before being busy at work so yet more catching up before I fill you in on the great offers Stampin' Up! have for you this month.


There have been 2 Christmas cards of the week, which were:


This one using the Letters For You stamp set, Large Letter Framelits and some super snowflakes from the Seasonal Layer thinlits.



And a card using the Flurry of Wishes stamp set again which I challenged myself to try a bit of a different colour combo with Berry Burst and Bermuda Bay.  I've sneaked in some of the new glitter enamel dots on this one too.

Just a little post to say that we made our target of 800 cards yesterday, in fact we even made a few more!

This is a pic of us 6 'VIP' demonstrators:


I sat with Beth and Sarah for our birthday party themed day!:


I'll fill you in on more of the day at some point!

Birthday Wishes Challenge

Today is the day of the challenge where I will be making 100 of these cards:


They have to be simple but I am doing 3 different colour ways to mix it up a little!

You can imagine there was bit of prep but I'm all ready now, with a few spares in case of crisis!


I'll let you know how it goes and if you are Facebook enabled we will be 'Live' on the Stampin' Up! UK page at 10.25 then 3 more times through the day!!

Birthday Wishes Challenge

Did you know that Stampin' Up!  support Ronald McDonald House Charities and that there are lots of the houses in the UK?
I certainly didn't for a while and the houses do a great job keeping families close by when their children are receiving medical treatment far from home.

Each catalogue has a stamp set to support the cause and this time it's the 'Sharing Sweet Thoughts' set shown below.  For each set sold SU donate £2 to RMHC.


This weekend marks the start of the Birthday Wishes challenge for Stampin' Up! where they are  trying to make 10,000 cards to donate.  I am one of 6 demonstrators who are going to one of the houses in London for a birthday party filled day where we are making 100 cards each with this set!

These 2 cards are not ones I will be making as they need to be quicker but just an idea of what you can do with the set.

If you are Facebook savvy the SU UK page will have several Facebook live videos of us through the day!!

Keep cool!

Wowsers isn't it hot!  The heat doesn't like me very much which is a bit annoying but I have managed to make a card for the occasion!!


This little note card uses the Cool Treats stamp set and co-ordinating framelits (and a combo of Circle and Oval Layering/Stitched Shapes Framelits).

I've also had a quick play with the Tranquil Tulips hostess set this week:



The tulips are so effective, these ones are in Berry Burst and fussy cut out and added to the card.
A simple card but a request needed quickly.

And then there is Christmas card of the week:


The stamps used for this are from the set Peace This Christmas and the card is Crumb Cake.

I'll be back next time to update you with my Ronald McDonald adventures this week!
