Last Chance List

Stampin’ Up! are bringing out a new catalogue on 1st October and many itemw in the current catalogue will be discontinued.  Some are being offered at a discount, but all products are only available while stocks last!

Here’s the list.  Contact me soon if you want to order anything!




New Venue!

I’m rather excited as I have managed to find a new venue for the card making class.  I’ve loved being at peppers – and I’ve especially loved their hot chocolate!  But we really need more space for people to spread out.  So starting on the 9th September we’re going to be at Wilton Community Centre, in Room 2.  It’s a fab room as it has lots of natural light and lots of space.  As well as facilities for making drinks.  :)

If you’re interested in coming along, please let me know.  I’ll need a few days notice to make sure I have enough packs made up for everyone!

Free Ribbon!

The Stampin’ Up! special offer for August is a rather wonderful one.  If you spend at least £45, you get two reels of beautiful ribbon.  And what’s even better is that they are ribbons you can’t buy in the catalogue.

Post-it note holder

At the last class we had fun making cards and gifts for men and boys.  One of the items we made was a post-it note holder.

I was given one of these by a friend a few years and found it so useful.  I always used to lose my post-its, but when I had them safely in a pretty little holder I was happier to have it out on show and never had a problem finding it!

  • Each month, one member will recieve the free hostess set and a different member will receive free products (the amount depends on the collective total)
  • The only p&p cost you pay are the actual costs of me posting the items on to you.

Father’s Day

My Dad really loves trains, so what better stamp set to use than Choo Choo!

I kept to neutral colours for this, so it didn’t end up looking like a child’s card.  I think it’s made it look a bit vintage.
