Retired stamps, accessories and tools – while stocks last!


Our annual catalogue is coming out early this year – on Tuesday 2 June (we’re going global and getting our catalogues aligned across all markets – no more waiting an extra month after the US – woohoo!).

And to make way for all this new loveliness,  we’re having to “retire” a whole bunch of our existing stamps, accessories and tools. This means that any retiring products are only available while stocks last and then when they’re gone, they’re gone!

The good news about this (as well as the fact that we have fun new goodies on the way) is that some items have amazing discounts on them (up to 50% off some items) – but again, only while stocks last.

To take a look at what’s retiring, browse the products in the store. Each list (stamps and accessories) comes up as an A-Z list, but you can Sort on < Price to see the products from cheapest to most expensive ;)

The best way to order is direct online, that way you can grab your goodies fast, before they sell out, but if you’d rather order offline, then please email me or give me a call on 0775 1133886 .

Please note that the 2014-15 annual catalogue is finishing earlier than printed on the cover – it will end on Tuesday 2 June so please order in plenty of time 🙂

More Sale-a-bration freebies!

Wow! Can you believe that Stampin’ Up! has added more freebies to the Sale-a-bration pot!

We’re now into the last two weeks of Sale-a-bration – it ends on 31 March 2015 and we’re at the stage where all Sale-A-Bration items (with the exception of stamps) will be available “while supplies last” – so if you have a favourite, then please don’t leave it too late. Blendabilities are no longer available. So to make sure that you still have plenty of choice in these final two weeks,

Stampin’ Up! have added these lovelies to the offer.


That’s in addition to the original Sale-a-bration goodies – here

And the bonus Sale-a-bration goodie released at the beginning of the month – here

We can’t complain at the lack of choice! 🙂

If you already have a SNAIL then you can substitute a SNAIL refill (104331) and the total will be £46.00.

Of course any £45 purchase qualifies you for a Sale-a-bration goody 🙂

Weekly deals until 24 February

Wednesday again and so it’s time for a new set of Weekly Deals.

These are the deals available now and they’ll stay until Tuesday night, 24 February.

My top pick this week is the Pansy punch. This works with the Flower Shop stamp set to make it sooo easy to simply punch out all the flowers, rather than having to cut them al by hand.

Imagine cutting all the flowers for this card by hand.

And you wouldn’t get such a professional, uniform border to the flowers for this card if you were cutting them by hand.

I can also recommend the Gold Foil sheets for that bit of bling 😉

Weekly deals until 10 February

I’m just packing everything ready for tonight’s Paper Dolls Inspiration Meeting but as it’s Wednesday, I thought I’d take a few minutes to share the new set of Weekly Deals.

These are the deals available now and they’ll stay until Tuesday night, 10 February.

My top pick this week is the pack of 2 Silver Foil sheets – just a little of this goes a long way in blinging up a project …

… and it looks amazing when it’s put through an embossing folder:

Back tomorrow with another suggested Sale-a-bration bundle.

Best Day Ever Tag card – Best Day Ever bundle

best day ever tag close up

Now I know how it is, with so much choice on offer with the main catalogue and the Spring/Summer catalogue it can be really difficult to decide what to get, so that you can qualify for a Sale-a-bration freebie. So each week from now until the end of Sale-a-bration, I’m going to suggest a possible bundle and share with you a couple of projects that use that bundle. These are only suggestions – you’re free to switch and change to suit your preferences or choose something else entirely! 🙂

Here’s my first suggested bundle (it assumes that you have cardstock and ink pads – if you have different colours to those in the suggested DSP then switch the DSP out for something to match your colours):


£9.95   Confetti Celebration DSP (133692)
£19.95 Ornate Tag Topper punch (137416)
£6.25  Silver Satin Ribbon (134548)
£4.50  Silver 1/8″ Ribbon (132137)
£4.50  Rhinestone Basic Jewels (119246)

£45.15   Total

FREE Best Day Ever Stamp set
(Wood 139091, Clear 139094, Photopolymer 139149)

(If ordering online then you get to choose your freebie when you checkout).

Here’s the first project made with the bundle.

best day ever tag

The card base is an A6 portrait of Smoky Slate matted with Pistachio Pudding card and then Confetti Celebration DSP. A tag (2″ x approx. 3-3/4″)  was cut from Basic Gray card and punched at the top with the Ornate Tag Topper.  A slightly smaller tag (1-7/8″ x approx.  3-5/8″) was cut from Whisper White card and again punched with the Ornate Tag Topper. This was stamped with one of the sentiments from Best Day Ever in Smoky Slate ink. The tiny triangles were stamped, pointing to the sentiment, using Pistachio Pudding ink and then the stripy heart added in Strawberry Slush ink. The two tags were adhered together centred, Silver Satin Ribbon threaded through the holes and then tied with 1/8″ Silver Ribbon and trimmed. After popping the tag up on the card front with dimensionals, it was finished by adding a Basic Rhinestone to the heart.

best day ever tag inside

On the Whisper White insert, the flowers were stamped across the bottom in Pistachio Pudding ink, rotating the stamp so that the striped petal was in a different position each time.

I’ll be back with another project using this same bundle on Monday (we’ll have other projects and news between now and then 🙂 ).
