Stamp Set of the Week - Party With Cake Stampin' Up!

If I'm completely honest with you, I am struggling with the next set in the catalogue. Party With Cake is a great set, I love the fonts and there are some big focal point sentiments in there, but it just isn't getting the mojo going.

Day 3 Stamp Set of the Week - Birthday Blossoms

Looking at the sentiment stamps in Birthday Blossoms I had a thought that they would lend themselves to a scrapbook layout, and not just a card.

Stamp Set of the Week - Birthday Blossoms from Stampin' Up!

Wow, we're on to the 3rd set in the catalogue already (well it's not quite the 3rd, but it's the 3rd one I own).

Stampin' Up! - Bonus Days

While hostesses  and new demonstrators got to party it up in June with their Extra Stampin’ Rewards and Starter Kits with free stamps, we’ve been preparing a special deal so shoppers could have their own reason to party: Bonus Days!

Confetti Celebration Scrapbook Layout

I kinda got the scrapping bug at the weekend and needed to scrap some pictures of a brilliant night with my sisters, Mr Ding and my brothers-in-law. This week's featured stamp set Confetti Celebration just seemed to go perfectly.

Featured Stamp Set of the Week - Confetti Celebration

This week's featured stamp set of the week is Confetti Celebration. This is a set Stampin' Up! used for one of the make and takes at On Stage Live or Local on April this year. Those who attended had the chance to order it early, and I did just that before we had lunch!

Birthday Fiesta Weekly Round Up

I've really enjoyed playing with the first product suite in the new 2016-2017 annual catalogue. The Festive Birthday suite is full of bright papers & ribbons, with a really funky stamp set & embossing folder.

Birthday Fiesta by Stampin' Up!

More lama for you today. I'm just loving playing with this stamp set, and it just so happens to be this week's What Will You Stamp featured set for challenge #70

Birthday Fiesta Bold & Bright Birthday Card

How cute is this lama? I love him, such a cheeky face fits in perfectly on a cute, bright card!

Biggest Every Birthday

Oh, this is such a fun set! Biggest Ever Birthday gives big focal images which can be cut with the matching Framelits. I'm going to love playing with these stamps!

More Baby Bear from Stampin' Up!

I couldn't resist more Baby Bear. This time I've used the top stamp on it's own to stamp my background piece. I was going to use Pink Pirouette DSP but decided it was a smidge too much pink!

Baby Bear from Stampin' Up!

This is quite possibly the most anticipated stamp set (well one of the 2) from the 2016-2017 annual catalogue. When Stampin' Up! demos around the world first saw Baby Bear there was a collective "ahhh", I'm surprised that it wasn't heard outside of OnStage!

June Hosts Get More Rewards

I love this time in the Stampin' Up! year, with lots of new products to play with. The only problem it brings is I just don't have enough in my crafting budget to buy everything I want. This sound familiar?

Pop of Pink from Stampin' Up!

At each event that Stampin' Up! demonstrators get to attend there are always gorgeous display boards with lots of lovingly made projects using some of the products being revealed at that event. Well, November's OnStage Local is no different.

Love You Lots Stampin' Up!

Oh isn't he so cute! When I first saw this set I had to have it. When I found out it was a hostess and I couldn't buy it from the new catalogue, I had to know how I could get it!

Stampin' Up! OnStage 2016, New Product Reveal!

One of the many things I love about being an independent Stampin' Up! demonstrator is getting together with other demonstrators and getting to see new catalogues & products being revealed.

It's My Party from Stampin' Up!

I've just started planning my next One Day Stamping Retreat, which got me to thinking about my last one. We made a birthday book and 13 cards, all using the soon to be retired DSP, accessories and colour scheme of the It's My Party product suite, but with 4 different stamp sets.

Oh Happy Day Card Kit from Stampin' Up!

I was planning on sharing more projects using retiring and carry over items with you, but I just loved putting this card kit together so much I had to skip ahead to sneak peeks!

Double Shutter Card with Stampin' Up Botanical Blooms Video Tutorial

I am just loving playing with the Botanical Gardens suite from the centre of the 2016 spring/summer catalogue (or 2016 Occasions catalogue if you're not from Europe). I'll be sad to see the papers, washi and embellishments go, but them being on the retirement list has made me use them!

Awesomely Artistic Stampin' Up!

I thought before I started sharing sneak peeks I'd celebrate some stamp sets which are staying!

Botanical Blooms from Stampin' Up!

It's that really exciting time of year when Stampin' Up! demonstrators get to see, and order some of the new products from the upcoming annual catalogue. Part of the excitement though is tempered by learning what's retiring and then the relief that those stamps or dies that you just haven't used enough are staying! That's the case for me with the Botanical Blooms stamps & Botanical Builder dies!

Stampin' Up! Retirement List

It’s that time again: we’re getting ready to retire stamps and accessories from both the annual and spring/summer catalogues. As sad as it is to see these products go, there’s still time for us to get them before they’re gone. Plus, retiring products have discounts of up to 50%! 

Retiring products will only be available until 31 May, or while supplies last, so me, or click any of the product links below to order them before they’re gone!

Amazing Birthday Stampin' Up!

I've been having a great time in the craft room, working my way alphabetically through all my current stamp sets. Today I'm starting from the beginning, with A and Amazing Birthday.

Butterfly Basics - Stampin' Up!

I have a friend who's started a "use them or loose them" challenge on her blog here in order to make sure her loved, but neglected stamps get used. The idea is that if by the end of the year a stamp or stamp set hasn't been used then it goes! Inspired by this, I've started working through my stamp sets...

Balloon Celebration - Stampin' Up!

I went a bit mad the other week and using colours which are found in the Sale-A-Bration DSP (Designer Series Paper) Wildflower Fields, I made a "few" cards with the stamp set Balloon Celebration.

Free Project Kit

Each month my stamping ladies join me for various classes, cups of tea and lots of laughs. We have a great time making the projects my design team & I have designed and everyone leaves with something they are proud of.

You can now enjoy a selection of these projects at home from anywhere in Europe (limited to European countries Stampin' Up! operate in).
