2nd Anniversary card

Here is the 2nd Anniversary card I had to make for yesterday. This one was for my nephew Daniel and his wife Barbara, who were celebrating their 7th Anniversary and they both loved the card so I was very pleased.

I also managed to get my Mum's birthday card made but I cannot show that one until after today when I give it to her.

At last a card to share

Well at last.......................... my new craft room is now at that stage where I can actually sit in here and craft so here is my first creation.

This is a Wedding Anniversary card that I have made this morning and it is for my Sister and Brother in Law for tomorrow. I have used the gorgeous Wedding Sweet set of stamps and teamed it with Baja Breeze, Soft Suede and Very Vanilla inks and cardstock. I have also used our brand new border punch which is beautiful. Can you tell I am TOTALLY in love with the products in our new catalogue lol.

I must dash now as I have still to make another anniversary card for later on today for my nephew and his wife and also a Birthday card for my Mum for her birthday tomorrow..............can you tell that my family like to try and fit all the events into one week ha ha ha

New Craft Space

Just a quick apology for the lack of posts again.

I have had a really busy fortnight making samples etc for my New Catalogue Launch party and I have also been trying to get my new craft space organised. As you can see from these pictures it is coming along nicely but there is still quite a way to go before I can say it is a finished project. So far I have only moved in the basic furniture and a few essentials needed for this weeks classes so I have an awful lot of sorting out to do before I move the rest of my craft stash in there.

I am 100% determined that every single box in my existing craft room will be inspected and sorted before it comes anywhere near my wonderful new space. Anything I haven't used in ages or things I look at and have to think about how I can use it will be rehomed to another crafter who WILL make good use of it.
My new craft room may be a lovely big room but there is going to be no place in there for clutter of any form. I am spending this weekend trying to get the move completed so I will hopefully be back early next week to show you all a beautiful new TIDY room.

NEW Catalogue, NEW stamps AND NEW Colours

Hi there I am back as promised to show you the first card I have made with items from the New Catalogue.

This card uses one of our gorgeous new colours "Cherry Cobbler" which is the most stunning deep rich red that you can imagine. It goes perfectly with so many of the old colours as well as the new ones. It is a brilliant backdrop for the gold embossing I have used on this card and I can see me using it lots, especially for my Christmas cards as it gives a beautiful expensive feel to a card.

The card also uses one of the brand new stamp sets on offer in the new catalogue. The set is called Contempo Christmas and the really exciting news is that we now also have the matching punch for the bauble , so simply stamp your baubles in all the colours you want and punch them out....so easy and just perfect for those people who do struggle with cutting out with scissors.

I am still getting samples ready for my Catalogue Launch party on Thurs and also trying desperately to get my new craft room finished in time................who needs sleep anyway hee hee

I will try and get back again tomorrow to show off a couple more samples.

New Catalogue is here

So what is the date today ?

Of course .......it's 1st October so that means just one thing.

Stampin' Up! Idea Book & Catalogue goes live

I have to say that I believe that the 2010/2011 Catalogue is our best yet. As you will know from the huge Last Chance list a huge amount of old sets have been retired so this meant just one thing........it made room for lots of new and exciting stamp sets.

In addition to a fantastic new selection of stamps we also have the total Colour Renovation. So there are now 40 new core colours for you to work with and for the first time ever we now have "In Colours" in cardstock, inks, accessories and papers.

I am delighted with the new catalogue and very excited about all the new things I will be able to play with over the coming 12 months. If you are free on Thursday next week please feel free to join me at my catalogue launch party to see samples made with some of the new products. If you cannot make that date but would like your own copy of the Idea Book and Catalogue please either purchase it via my tool bar or contact me to arrange collection.

Don't forget to pop back tomorrow to see my first examples.
