Retiring Products and Clearance Lines


Can you believe we are almost in May already?  Where have the past few months gone?  But with the arrival of May comes the last month of both the Stampin' Up! Annual and Spring/Summer Catalogues.  And with the imminent arrival of the new catalogue, comes the release of the Retiring Products.  All are available until 31st May, or until stock runs out.  With discounts of up to 50% off the catalogue price, I don't expect them to last long!

There are still some fantastic offers to be found within the Clearance Rack too, also available while stock lasts.  Don't miss out on some fantastic bargains to be had.

Those of you that visit my website often will have noticed that the Weekly Deals have disappeared from my shop.  This is because some changes are being made at head office, ready for the release of something bigger and better - watch this space!

Thanks for visiting, and I hope you catch your favourite products before they're gone for good.  I've got my wish list ready, have you?

Please do use the reward code to get free products (reward code shown in the to right of my blog is the current one).  If your order is over £150, please do not use this code as you then qualify for Hostess Rewards.

Guest Blogger - Fiona Whitehead


Welcome to my blog!  Can you believe its already 31st March?  Where has the time gone?  Can you believe Sale-A-Bration ends today!?!

Today I'd like to introduce a Guest Blogger, Fiona Whitehead, who is a fellow Stampin' Up! Demonstrator here in the UK. 

A bit about Fiona:

Fiona lives in a small village in Hampshire near Andover and has been crafting for over 20 years, using Stampin' Up! products for 15, and first used Stampin' Up! when she lived in Texas!  Fiona runs two classes in Andover and Winchester, and also at home.  She has grown up kids but a demanding husband and four pets lol!  You can find more info on Fiona at her blog, Crafty Stamping.

Thanks so much, Fiona, for being todays Guest Blogger.  Take it away..!


PERFECT PAIRINGS/SERENE SILHOUETTES - BORDER SENTIMENT

I've just found this new technique and love it.  Known as Border Sentiment I think its great especially for cards which only want one layer.  I've added the butterfly just because I had it and its lovely but it would be equally nice without an embellishment.

Simple technique - just simply stamp your sentiment and draw a line with a ruler.  Mask this off then with some post it notes or masking paper and stamp away.  Simples!  But effective!  I'm going to enter this into the Less is More challenge which is asking for views outside your window - the weather here in the UK is so lovely today I actually saw a butterfly outside my window.  Shame the rain is supposed to come just in time for Easter :(  you'll find the challenge here

I'm also adding this card into the CASology challenge here where the theme is weather.


I've used the Perfect Pairings for the sentiment and Serene Silhouettes and also some of the little flowers from Birthday Blooms.  The Kindly word has been gone over with a red marker pen and, of course, a Wink of Stella just to finish it off.



All of the products used can be found in the Annual or seasonal Stampin' Up! catalogues, and can be found here.

Please do use the reward code to get free products (reward code shown in the to right of my blog is the current one).  If your order is over £150, please do not use this code as you then qualify for Hostess Rewards.  And remember, during Sale-a-Bration, you get to choose a free product from the Sale-a-Bration catalogue for every £45 you spend! 

Or, until 31st March, you can join my team and get even more!  Whether you're looking for a new career, a part time job to earn some extra money, or just want to buy Stampin' Up! products at a discounted price, I'd love to have you on my team.  You can join for just £99, and as well as all of the business stationery needed to get you off to a flying start, you will also get up to £160 of Stampin' Up! products of your choice (returning to £130 as of 1st April).

Weekly Deals and Sale-a-Bration


It's another Wednesday, and that means, new Weekly Deals over at my Stampin' Up! website and I'm so excited by them!  I've recently discovered planners, and as such, have developed a bit of an obsession for Washi Tape, so you can guess whats going on my next order...

Don't forget, during Sale-a-Bration, you get a free Sale-a-Bration product with every £45 product spend.  And if you chose to join Stampin' Up!, either as a Hobby Demo to get a discount off of your order, or to earn a full or part-time income as a Demonstrator, you get to choose up to £160 of Stampin' Up! products for just a £99 investment (usually £130 of products for £99).  But this is only during Sale-a-Bration, which ends next week, Thursday 31st March.  Don't miss out!

Please do use the reward code to get free products (reward code shown in the to right of my blog is the current one).  If your order is over £150, please do not use this code as you then qualify for Hostess Rewards.  And remember, during Sale-a-Bration, you get to choose a free product from the Sale-a-Bration catalogue for every £45 you spend!

Sale-A-Bration Metallic Glitter Tape Card


Today I'd like to share with you a card I created using the Metallic Glitter Tape (above) that you can get as one of your Sale-A-Bration freebies.  This tape is of a fantastic quality, I love it!  The glitter doesn't fall off like others I have tried, and the texture of the tape is rather papery, instead of plastic, which is great as you can tear it with ease - ideal if you're a little protective over your scissors and don't like them getting sticky (like me).


The background was created using one of my favourite stamp sets, Gorgeous Grunge.  I started with a panel of Whisper White card, cut to 5-3/8" x 3-5/8", and using a Melon Mambo, and a Sahara Sand Stampin' Pad, stamped the background as shown.  I then added a strip of the free Sale-a-Bration Glitter Tape to the right hand side of the panel.  The flower was stamped onto Melon Mambo card, using a Melon Mambo Stampin' Pad, then punched out using the coordinating Punch (you can buy the Flower Shop Stamp Set and Punch as part of a bundle, saving you 15%).  This was then finished off with some Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush.

The stamped panel was then stuck to a panel of Melon Mambo, measuring 5-5/8" x 3-7/8", using Tear & Tape Adhesive, which was then stuck onto the front of a C6 card, made from Extra Thick Whisper White card.  The flower was stuck in place using a Stampin' Dimensional foam pad.

You don't have to stick to the colours I've used above.  The Metallic Glitter Tape looks fab in many different colourways, and here are a couple of other ideas.


Here are the links to the products used:


I do hope you like my card and have enjoyed this project.
