2 new catalogues out now!

Wahoo, are you as excited as me? 

Annual Catalogue
1 September 2012 - 30 June 2013
Holiday Catalogue
September 2012 - January 2013
Not only do we have a fabulous new 2012 Catalogue, but we also have a new catalogue called the Holiday Catalogue.  This new publication is jammed packed with christmas, halloween, thanksgiving and valentines products, basically it covers all the holidays between now and February. 

So what's new

The 5 new in-colours

Firm Foam Inkpads.  Stampin' Up! have introduced a new style firm foam inkpad.  The colours and cases are the same, but the firm foam surface provides an even better stamped image, with only a light tap required.

Stamp and Framelit bundles.  Many new stamp sets have co-ordinating Framelits dies to cut them out with the Big Shot, and some even come in a bundle, saving you money if you buy them together.

Cookie Press Stamps.  Now you can have gorgeous stamped cookies, as well as cards.

Digital Content CDs.  For those of you who love digital scrapbooking or cardmaking, you can use Stampin' Up!'s exclusive images on your layouts.  The content of each cd includes Designer Series Paper and co-ordinating brushes.  The cd will work with Photoshop, Photoshop Elements and similar software.

Price Reductions.  Yes, many items have been reduced in price.  These include inkpads, bigshot dies, punches and more. 

To view the catalogues, please click on the links in the side bar, or if you would prefer a paper copy to drool over, please email me and I will post one out to you.

Til next time,

Keep on creating.

Have you missed my creating?

Wow I can't believe it has been seven months since I last blogged. What can I say, my mojo went AWOL and life has been very hectic, what with kids activities, lots of illness nd even hospital stays, time has got away on me.

I have also been trying to purge stuff and organise our house. I fear I am a bit of a hoarder, but I am trying to improve and have been systematically working through boxes, drawers and anywhere I have stashed "stuff". My mind is a lot less cluttered now the house is looking better and I don't feel guilty sitting in my craft room playing. Now I just need to teach my kids how to pick up and put away after themselves ... Any advice you have would be greatly appreciated because my asking nicely, yelling and bribing technique is not working lol.

One of my fabulous friends came over last night and we made cards, and had an awesome time doing it. Lots of gossiping, laughing, pizza, a glass or two of wine and home made profiteroles, it was a winning combination.

Unfortunately I haven't photographed the cards yet, but will do it and post them this week sometime. I Am not going to give you a specific day as the kids are still on holidays this week and I want to spend lots of time hanging with them.

Thanks for sticking with me, and be sure to pop back next week to check out my creations.

Keep on creating.
