New Hostess benefits & New Recruit offer!

There is so many changes in the new Idea Book & Catalogue that it's hard to know where to start!

I am so excited about the new Hostess benefit system! The three tiered level hostess system has gone and has been replaced with four pages of lovely new stamps and papers, and the good news is that if you have a qualifying party of £150 or more, you can order any of them! Instead of the free stamp set from the previous IB&C you now have Hostess Pounds that you can either spend on the exclusive Hostess only products or anywhere else in the catalogue! How amazing is that?!

And if that wasn't enough, if your workshop is £300 or more you get one item at 50% so you could buy that Big Shot for half price! Which with the £50 you get free for a £300 workshop, would mean that you could get £90 worth of free product!!

Want more? Well, if you sign up as a demo in October and join my Inklings team then not only do you get approx £250 worth of goodies for £119 but during October only, you will also get the In-Colours bundle worth £27.95 absolutely free!

So as well as all the wonderful goodies in the Starter Kit (which you can personalise) you also get the following free:

  • Pool Party Classic Stampin’ Pad
  • Calypso Coral Classic Stampin’ Pad
  • Lucky Limeade Classic Stampin’ Pad
  • Wisteria Wonder Classic Stampin’ Pad
  • Island Indigo Classic Stampin’ Pad
  • A4 Smooth Card Stock (20 sheets: 4 ea. in new In Colors)
Stampin' Up! has a +One challenge for all us demos this year and the task that I have set myself is to share my love of Stampin' Up! with a new recruit. So if you are interested in finding out more and joining my Inklings team then please get in touch:

It's here!

The new catalogue is finally live! And I am so excited to be able to finally share it with you. I am sure that you are all going to love it as much as I do. And not only do I have a new catalogue to share but there is also an exciting new Starter Kit offer as well with even more freebies! So if you want to join me in my Inklings team then pop back later tonight when I will update you with this fab new offer.

But first, it's blog hop time! A large group of us on ILWS have got together for a blog hop to showcase some of the new loveliness from the IB&C. Hopefully, you will have arrived at my blog after visiting Caroline's. I just love her Christmas card.

As a demo we are allowed to order pre-order items before the IB&C goes live and I just had to have the Delicate Doilies set. So here is what I came up with.

 Yes, we have fabric!! Do you like my little owls. I'm not the best at sewing but these owls were so quick and easy to whip up. I adapted a tutorial from Efemera Ink to make the birds. I'll be back with instructions tomorrow.

I love fabric, it's great for adding dimension to a card, but also if you do sew, how fabulous it will be to match your present and card! You get three different patterns of fabric in each pack. I'll be showing you lots of ways to use this lovely fabric on your cards throughout October.

Have you spotted the new lace ribbon border punch too! It's lovely. You can back the doilies with different coloured card using the 1" circle punch which matches perfectly or you can even thread ribbon through it.

Card: Basic Grey & Wistera Wonder *new in-colour
Ink pads: Melon Mambo, Wistera Wonder*, Pool Party*
Buttons: from the Subtles buttons collection
Punch: Lace Ribbon Border 122362

Next is a lovely card that we made at the Stampin' Stars training session last weeknd. I love how Natalie layered up the greeting using one of the fab new doily shapes from the designer paper pack, a medallion from the new BS Perfect Pennants Bigz L die, 1 1/4" and 1" circle punches. I can't stop saying this, but I love how SU! makes everything so easy for us by making sure that the punches and stamps work together. The greeting stamp is from Happiest Birthday Wishes which is one of the exclusive new Hostess stamp sets.

Well if you have read this far, then thank you for popping by. As always, your comments are really appreciated. The next blog to hop to is Sally's. I am sure you will love what she has made.
