My new Magnetic Time Saver.

Recently I ordered the new Magnetic Platform for the BigShot. I thought that it would 'come in handy'. Well, little did I realise just how much I'd get to use it. In fact, it's still right where I put it on my machine as soon as I opened the packet. I just haven't stopped using it.
With so many fabulous products in our catalogues (it can be found on page 184) it's easy to overlook items in our excitement to thumb through, so I'm bringing you a short video below from a US demo, Christi. She explains just how useful this fab new item is. No more post-it notes or sticky tape required to stop your dies moving around, so much quicker. Take a look and see if you don't agree with me:
Item no. 130658   £ 35.95
If you'd like to own one of these beauties then you can shop online anytime, 24/7 by visiting my online store. Just click the button on the right of this post, or contact me - lesleylendon@gmail.com, phone 07725 217695.

Creative, Wokingham

Last night I joined over 100 demonstrators gathered in Wokingham to share what we love at the Stampin' Up! Creative event. As you can see from the picture below, we enjoyed ourselves with swaps, gifts, Make n' Takes, demos and generally socialising. 
What you can't see is that we got to share some sneak peeks of a couple of new products. Then, the icing on the cake, random names were chosen and the winners each received one of these new products. I can't tell you how excited I was when my name appeared on the screen with two others! I wonder if my fellow demos could guess - I obviously gave no clue to my enthusiasm as I screamed and jumped up from my chair! I would love to share my gift with you but am having to keep tight lipped until these products are released.
Can you can guess what I won? It's something that will impress with it's results and make my job so much easier when I use it. It's ever so flat and easy to store. Can you wait to find out????  Why not pop by regularly and check for an update!
