Wave Goodbye...

to our 2013-2014 Catalogue. 

Today is the last day you can order from the 2013-2014 catalogue although not all items are available as some have already sold out!

But don't worry.... Tomorrow we say HELLO to...

Demo's have had the last month to drool over the new catalogue and to try a couple of products ready to inspire and motivate you in your own creativity.

If you don't have a catalogue yet and would like to get your own copy please leave me a comment and I will happily post one out to you.

Stampin' Up! Preview Playtime

How lovely are the blue sky days we are having at the moment? They take me back to childhood summers filled with sunshine and friends.

With the skies for inspiration I had a play with a couple of new products coming to you in just 1 WEEK!!!
So get your wish lists at the ready and if you still don't have a catalogue and would like one then just leave me a message and I will get one in the post to you.
That also means you have just 1 WEEK to order from the current catty those items which are retiring.

Here I have used Bermuda Bay and stamped 3 times without inking. I love that one ink pad can give you so many variations of the same colour. 
Another new product has been used to add some sparkle - a perfectly sized star punch adds just the right amount of detail. Watch out for more stars in the upcoming catalogue!

Can you name the stamp set used to create the background? Leave me a message with your answer underneath and I will pick a winner on Friday to receive a little something from me.

Till next time - Happy Crafting

Stampin' Up! Dipping my toe....

.... into the new catalogue!!!

I finally got time today to play with the new stuff that will be available to you all on the 1st of July. 
It has been a pretty busy couple of weeks here by the sea and I have had these goodies in my craft room for a couple of weeks and no chance to play. As a Demonstrator we get to pre order some of the goodies from the up coming catalogue a month before it goes live to customers.   

I just fell in love with this Sea Street when I saw it at Telford and what better set for a Mermaid. It also has a matching Designer Series Paper - so cool!!

I always find it takes a couple of 'plays' with a new set to get the feel for it so I have kept this card simple and clean. I used Coastal Cabana and Whisper White with just a hint of Real Red. 
I fussy cut the starfish which takes no time at all and really adds a sense of movement.

I hope you liked today's card and if you would like to find out more about getting your hands on new goodies earlier than the rest then please leave me a comment and I will get back to you.

Till next time - Happy Crafting
