Stampin' Up! - Bonus Days! - here comes summer tra lah lah!

hi all

yes it is that lovely time again - whoo hoo!!


That's right - Bonus Days are back.. For every  £45 you spend,  from the 1st until 31st July (before shipping and handling costs) you receive a £4.50 Bonus Day coupon to use between 1st until 31st August.

How brilliant is that?  and yes, no strings attached.. with every qualifying spend of £45 in July you will receive a nice bonus of a £4:50 coupon with which to treat yourself in August.

so just a few points to note:
  • An email address is required to participate as the Bonus Days coupon codes can only be delivered to you via email and will be emailed to you after you place a qualifying order in July.   Make sure you enter a valid and correct email address...
  • Keep your coupons safe - Save your emails containing your Bonus Days coupon codes AND write them down somewhere and keep them in a safe plac.
  • There is no limit to the number of coupons you can receive per order or earn over the duration of the promotion. There is no limit on the number of coupons you can use on an order during August to redeem them.
Why not use July as a chance to stock up on the essentials and basic supplies you need (card stock, adhesives, papers and inks etc.) and in doing so,   reward yourself in August by using the coupons you have earned, to buy something from your wish list..

a great idea in my book

if you have any questions please Just ask and I will be happy to answer any queries you may have.

so why not grab a cup of of coffee, snatch a few minutes to your self and take a look. You can easily access items in my on line store   Or if you wish me to place an order for you please don't hesitate to get in touch.

and with so many of us true advocates of  'Christmas Crafting in July!  well I would just add just that the Clearance Rack has a lot of seasonal related items,  discounted whilst stocks last..  just saying..




Until next time - happy crafting and fingers crossed we see more of this lovely nice weather we have just had!

bye for now

    What a weekend - Stampin' Up's 30th birthday - UK (and friends!) demonstrator get together - Birmingham Nov 2018

    hello all

    well it may look like I haven't been doing too much lately on the Stampin' Up! front but honest  I have been squirreling away in the back ground putting the finishing touches to a card swap or two,  as this weekend saw me, along with a whole host of other demonstrators head towards the Vox Centre at the NEC for Stampin' Up! On Stage Local held here in the UK, in Birmingham.

    ... and as Stampin' Up! have been in birthday mode all year in honour of their 30th birthday, this meeting promised to be very very special. and Stampin' Up! did not disappoint! Shame I can't say the same for this photo of Yours truly!

    Stampin' Up! on Stage Local  Birmingham 2018

    but to explain:  'On Stage Local' This was a fabulous theme packed day to help demonstrators get the most out of their business, with amazing fact filled presentations and business hints and tips, crafty makes and takes, fabulous prize patrols, all attendee give-aways,  a chance to congratulate achievers who had managed to attain awe-inspiring business milestones,  product demonstrations and sneak previews of new items including getting our hands on advance copies of the forth coming Spring Summer seasonal and Sale-a-Bration catalogues...
     
    Yes - we are all in for a treat!

    but back to it - All in all one very very busy day!  -  and when Stampin' Up! demonstrators get together - what do we do - we make a card or a 3D item to swap - how many you do is up to you..
    but this is where I came in.. 

    and here were mine, well in mid-preparation - I decided to call this - 'All you need is a bit of colour!'  and what  do Stampin' Up! do very very well - they give us colour !! - 4 fabulous colour families, Subtles, Brights, Regals and Neutrals with 3 additional Basic colours of Whisper White, Very Vanilla and Basic Black - not to mention their trendy  2 'In-colour' collections available for 2 years before being replaced.

     but me and my swaps  - ready for assembly in their component piles but yes, all a bit lacking in something!

    armed with the following Ink pads: Rich Razzlebury, Real Red, Pumpkin Pie and Crushed curry, some Stampin' Sponges, some protective grid paper and a bit of me time - ta dah I ended up with these!

    seasonal layers - Stampon' Up! swaps Birmingham 2018

    I was trying to get all my colours to morph together as a seamless colour change a bit like Autumn itself where all the yellows, oranges, reds and maroons just seems to compliment each other as they fall..

    and how did I put them all together ?  Like this!


    I was really pleased with the final result and here they all are,  bagged up and ready waiting to be swapped !

    Autumn/ Winter seasonal catalogue 2018

    Hello all

    well its been a while - and as always,  much has happened since I posted last time but more about that later.

    ...but what is going on  now?
    yes, it was the launch of the new seasonal catalogue at the beginning of the month, looking lovely and inviting as ever..

    Copies have already gone out to all my lovely loyal customers but if you would me like to send you  a copy please don't hesitate to get in touch.

    or if you would like to view a copy on line - just click on the image below.


    https://su-media.s3.amazonaws.com/media/catalogs/2018%20Holiday%20Catalog/20180710_HOL18_en-UK.pdf

    and if you would like to go shopping there's a link on the side  bar panel at the right to take you to my on line shop.

    As always the new catalogue is packed with lots of stuff to get those creative juices flowing  - fabulous new product lines not just for that all important, soon to be here 'Big  C,  in all sorts of themes, from traditional and tartan to frosty and floral to Santas and snowflakes and accessories to go with, and everything in between, but lots more besides. 


    but of course these days, not forgetting those who celebrate Halloween - where trick or treating seems to have gone from  strength to strength these last few years.. 


    yes,  we have you covered as well..

     perhaps this fun little video may serve as a small taster to what's in store...


    and coupled with all new goodies Stampin' Up!  have introduced,  they must need more room because they have recently updated their ever popular clearance rack .

    https://www2.stampinup.com/ecweb/products/500100/clearance-rack?dbwsdemoid=5009544

    New items added some at a great saving of  some 60% off.. How nice is that, . but as always with promotions such as these  - once its gone, it has gone - just so you know.

    You can easily access all of the items in my on line store   Or if you wish me to place an order for you, or have any questions please don't hesitate to get in touch.


    hopefully when you join me next time I will have had a chance to ink up some of my new stamps and highlight some of my personal favorites - as always that list is growing alarmingly!

    and for those of you interested in why I have been so quiet for the last couple of months..? . 

    Well a lovely colleague from my sewing class got married last weekend and as one of her guests I took up the challenge of making my outfit,  complete with lastminute.com (literally the night before !)  fascinator - as you do.! Amazing what you can manage with an Alice band, a  faux flower, some diamante sprigs and a load of glue!

    Well this is me with a re-cycled 8 year old frock, a coat from a piece of furnishing fabric and my piece of toning headgear.



    my trusty sewing machine is now catching her breath,  is due a lot of TLC and a good clean out before she goes away for a well deserved break and I am now back wielding my craft scissors, my paper trimmer, inks, stamps and card stock for a nice change.!

    and after all - that 'C' word is not that far away when you think on it...

    til next time 
    have a lovely week.
