Thank you, one and all!

I'd like to just say a quick 'thank you' to the members of my Stampers 10 and my customers. I've just had a wee Stampin' Up! promotion and just couldn't have done it without you!
Here's one of my 'fuzzifotos' to show the congratulation card I received from my upline, Natalie O'Shea.

by Natalie O'Shea

Remember the recent Stampin' Up! promotion - the Reason to Smile stamp set? Not many of you have it in your stash but I have a brand new, pristine set and, in response to your support, one of my lucky ladies will soon have it in her hands for keeps!
Yep! I'm giving it away to one of the customers that has either recently ordered from me, attended my Stamp Camp or who comes to the new catalogue launch (details to be released shortly). The names will go into a hat and be drawn on Sunday 6th October.

 

REMINDER 

Last orders for products from the currrent main catalogue need to be with me by noon on Sunday 30th September 2012.

In Stampin' Up! world retired really does mean retired! I will not be able to order any items from the current on, or after the 1st october 2012, even if there is still stock in the warehouse. Gone means gone!

Check your wish list NOW and order to avoid disappointment.

Finished Swap, bagged and tagged

And here is the finished swap, Octoberfest Pumpkin muffin, bagged with a seasonal tag which has the recipe on the reverse (see previous post).


My OH tried one. He felt it was in the ladies interest as I wouldn't want them to be disappointed. Verdict? ":Very nice, can I make some more?"

Team Training Sept 2012

It's that time again, our Team training is on Saturday and that means swaps, 19 this time around.
Since I LOVE autumn I thought I'd make use of the new Wonderfall stamp set, matching Sizzix die, woodgrain embossing folder and Core'dinations cardstock. 
Yes!!! That's right, Stampin' Up have now included Core'dinations in our Autumn/Winter 2012 Catalogue. It come in 3 shades. Gumball Green, Cherry Cobbler and delicious Early Espresso. Having used this cardstock since it first hit the market, I'm delighted to see it's debut in our latest catalogue, making it a must for my swaps.
I was a bit stumped as to what to make, we have soooo many talented ladies. I finally came up with a giant tag. The reverse has a recipe attached for pumpkin muffins - so right for this time of year. I'm hoping to attach the tag to a cellophane bag which has one of the muffins inside but it's a little early to make them which is why I've only got a picture of the tag to show you just now.


Yes, I know, there are 20 in the photo but I needed one to keep for myself! I like the way the September sun is shadowing across the picture.

Here's a close up of one tag. They're all cut from shades of green, yellow or orange. Some from cardstock others from the pack of brights DSP. Then they've been stamped in either old olive, garden green, cajun craze or pumpkin pie. The bow is our new 1/4 inch stitched grosgrain in daffodil yellow. I'll use that throught the top of the tag to tie to the cellophane muffin bag. 

This 'fuzzifoto' shows the reverse. Once I'd printed the recipe I got to work with the inks and wonderfall stamps to edge the page.

 Let's hope I get to actually make the muffins, it's supposed to be sunny again over the next couple of days so I'm off to the beach to walk on the sand.

A Gentle Reminder

A gentle reminder - there are just 12 days left to order from the 2011-2012 Idea Book and Catalogue. The majority of items featured on the Retired List ,which appeared earlier this month, have already gone.
If you've had your eye on a stamp set, our lovely ribbon, DSP or any of the other product then NOW is the time to get around to ordering. As they say - once it's gone, it's gone!!!
Haven't got a copy to hand? Click on the link to the left of this post to view our catalogue online. Call or email me (details in the righthand column) if you wish to order.

A watched pot never boils

You've probably had time by now to take a good look at the seasonal goodies in our new Autumn/Winter Catalogue. Tempting, huh?!
I've been trying out my new ink pads, luscious, rich colours. I've also been checking the website and my emails for the arrival of some of the new items and can't wait to play with them. I do hope 'Mr Brown' arrives with my delivery soon. Watching the road for the UPS truck to arrive is like watching the clock, it'll arrive much quicker if I go off and do something else but I just can't get stuck into anything.
I'm also excited about the release of this year's new main catalogue on 1st October. Now that we're aligned with the US & Canadian market the catalogue will have many more products.
Later on this month I'll attend our Team Training. I should have some lovely swaps to share with you. Don't forget to check back to see them.
