That's all folks ... the 2012 retirement list is up!

It's almost time for the all new catalogue - make sure you have the 2nd July clear in your diary! But in the meantime, it's time to say a fond farewell to some of our favourites from the 2011-2012 IB&C. Some items are already out of stock, so if there is something on the list that you've always wanted please get in touch to place your order soon! Click on the links below to see what's about to go! Postage direct to you, delivered by UPS is £4.95.

All of the fabric and the Simply Scrappin Kits are going, so if you like them, make you sure you order them whilst they are still available.

This & That is here!

Stampin Up! have just launched their new Scrapbook range This & That. If you like scrapbooking or are already a Smasher, then you will love This & That. It allows you to record memories on the move and quickly. It also makes a great gift and I think it's something that children will enjoy as well. My 7 year old son has a similar journal that he uses for his photos, drawings and funny little stories and I know it will give him pleasure to look back on when he is older!

The new range will be expanded and available in the new catalogue but for now, Stampin' Up! are offering a bundle with a fabulous 15% discount (items are available separately). The journal has a gorgeous embossed cover and is filled with lots of decorative paper ready for to get creative on straight away! I've ordered mine and as soon as I have it in my hands I will be back on here to show you what I've done with it!

Stampin' Up! Colour refresh

In 2010 Stampin' Up! completely overhauled the colour collections with the idea being that they would revist the colour collections every three years. Well that time has come again! We are having a colour refresh! We will be saying goodbye to some old favourites - I will be particularly sad to say goodbye to Baja Breeze but we'll also be saying Hello to some new favourites. I am thrilled that Pool Party will now become a permanant colour rather than an outgoing in-colour.

So enough with the chatter and on to the revitilised colour families! You will notice that some of the colours have moved families. Perfect Plum and Rose Red were both in the Subtles family but will be moving to the Regals family come 1st July (when the 2013-2014 IB&C comes out).

Now on to the important bit - the discontinued colours will only be available whilst stock lasts. That includes ribbons, ink pads, individual pens and paper, so if you are going to be missing  a favourite now is the time to stock up. Don't forget that the Spring/Summer mini catalogue is still available to order from as well.

I cannot share any sneak-peaks of the four new colours yet but be sure to pop back in June (and before!) when I will be sharing some cards using the new colours.

In the meantime, if you would like to place an order then just get in touch and I will be happy to assist you.

2012-2013 Idea Book & Catalogue Blog Hop!

It's the 1st October, which means that after admiring it for the last few months, I can now share the super thick new catalogue with you all! As always, there is a blog hop to accompany the new catalogue launch.

If you have arrived at my page after visiting Emma's page, then welcome! If not, you might want to pop back and take a look at the wonderful creations Emma has made. Sarah's blog should be next but Sarah is obviously beavering away at work, so whilst we are waiting for her blog to update why not hop on over to Sandra's blog, who is the blog after Sarah.

I hope you enjoy the blog hop and all of the creative inspiration! 

Now I have to confess that time rather flew away from me and as I wasn't happy with my first attempt, I searched the internet for inspiration, so my card is a copy of someone who is far more talented than I! The original card can be seen on Julie's blog. Hopefully, if I manage to shift this cold, I'll be able to show you some original ideas with this fab new stamp set and punch later this week.

Stamp set & Punch: Make a Mitten
Colours: Pool Party, Nearly Navy and the new In-Colour Raspberry Ripple.

You can't tell from the photo, but I've also sprayed the pool party cardstock with some homemade shimmer spray using Stampin Up! Frost White paint.

Retired list and more...

I've just come back from our summer holiday in Florida and although I am missing the days spent by the pool and beach there is plenty of Stampin' Up! news to keep me distracted for the moment!

Retirement list
Hurray! It's SU sale time! With the new catalogue only just round the corner (be sure to email me if you want your copy when it's released on 1 October) the retired list is now out and already a number of items are out of stock. So if there is a stamp set that you have always had your eye on, make sure you order it qucikly before it's sold out. Items on the list will not be able to buy after 30 September. Postage is £4.95 direct to your door by UPS.

You'll notice that all of the new stamp pads are on the retirement list. Fear not! With the exception of the 2011-2012 in-colours which are going for good,  all your other favourites will be back but in a new format. I'll update you on that over the weekend but I didn't want to bombard you with too much info in this post!

Autumn/Winter Mini catalogue
For the first time in Europe we now have an Autumn/Winter mini catalogue, so if Christmas and Halloween are your kind of celebration then you will want to get your hand on some of the lovely new products. Becuase I was away I've not yet placed my order but top of my list is the wonderful new Cherry Cobbler tulle, the fabuluous ornament stamp sets, the gold and silver pens (perfect for gift tags) and I could go on and on!

Now is a fabulous time to book a party especially with the new Hostess stamp sets available in the Autumn/Winter mini. So if you want to have a fab night in with friends and free stamp sets then get in touch to book your workshop with me!
