Meet Flirty Flamingo

Attention all lovers of pink! You're going to love Flirty Flamingo. It's a soft pink with a hint of watermelon, so it should come as no surprise that it works so well with Watermelon Wonder. It also pairs beautifully with gelato-tones like Pool Party and Mint Macaron

Meet Dapper Denim

Meet Dapper Denim - the newest blue to add to our collection. You're going to love using Dapper Denim on your masculine cards. It sits very happily next to lots of colours. Here I've used Delightful Dijon, and I'm loving this pairing.
You might spot a couple of new stamp sets on this card too - Mixed Borders and Badges and Banners...and the new Best Badge punch! ....All will be revealed in one more week!

First up, we have Sweet Sugarplum. This colour is very easy to's soft, pretty and feminine. It's best friends with Rich Razzleberry. They make a gorgeous pair, as you can see on my butterfly.

Happy Stampin'-versary to me!

I think it's rather appropriate that today is my 10 year Stampin' Up! Anniversary and this post is coming to you thanks to the power of scheduling, since I am currently en route to Barcelona about to embark on my 9th Stampin' Up! Incentive Trip. Dave and I will soon be cruising the Mediterranean, and also celebrating our 20th Wedding Anniversary! Needless to say, many cocktails shall be had!

To celebrate, I made myself an Anniversary Card (I'm allowed to do that, right?!) using some new, and some not-so-new products:

After our 7 day cruise (taking in Naples, Rome, Florence, Marseilles and Cannes), we'll be flying to Munich and visiting Bavaria and Salzburg, then travelling by train through Austria and Switzerland and finally finishing up in Venice! We'll be away until mid-June, and the kids are staying home and minding the fort. There will still be plenty of posts happening here and you can also follow my adventures on facebook! I'll still be contactable by email, but may take a little longer than usual to reply :)

A Farewell Cuppa

When I got my hands on the new Annual Catalogue, one of the first things I did was check to see whether the Nice Cuppa stamp set was in it. Sadly, the news was not good :(
I love this stamp set, and haven't had nearly enough time playing with it. So, this is me giving it one last hurrah. I love blue and white china, so I've gone for that look here using a brand new colour Dapper Denim, and a new stamp set Mixed Borders.
How cute is the little teaspoon? They are also retiring, so grab them by May 31 if you want some (if they last that long!)

The best way to make sure you don't miss out is to place your order in my Online Store. All orders over $50 will be automatically added to my mailing list to receive a FREE copy of the New Catalogue (mail outs begin mid-May). If you prefer to email me your order, that's perfectly fine too.

I think the easiest way to view what's retiring is in the Online Store (make sure you check out the Clearance Rack while you're there!)

You can also view the Retiring  List HERE

Some items are discounted by 50% ...but you'd better get in quick!

Note: The New Annual Catalogue will be online on June 1

Just Because...I like White!

White space is very on-trend at the moment. I've always loved the white-on-white look, so I'm happy that I'm fashionable for once! Here, I've tried to let the white sing, with just a splash of fresh blue and green - Marina Mist and Pear Pizzazz. I've kept the layout clean and simple too.
A few things to note about this card -
  • The Modern Mosaic Embossing Folder is retiring.
  • The Number of Years stamp set and matching framelits are only available as a 15% off Bundle until May 31. After that, they will be in the new catalogue, but only available to buy separately, without any discount (and that goes for ALL the bundles in the Occasions and Annual Catalogues!)
  • A Dozen Thoughts stamp set is a very versatile greeting set, and is also on the Retiring List

Grateful Bunch Stepped Up

Sometimes you need a card design that’s simple enough for beginners, and at other times you need something a bit more complex…and sometimes you need both! At a recent workshop, I had a mixture of experienced stampers and complete novices. This is the card I demonstrated. I showed both versions, and let my guests choose which version they made (and some made a card halfway between the two!). It’s a great way to keep everyone happy….it’s a “choose your own adventure” card! I also used the retiring 2014-16 In Colors and let my Workshop guests choose their own accent colour.

The Grateful Bunch stamp set and punch are both in our new Catalogue, but not as a bundle, so make sure to purchase them before May 31 to get them at the 15% off Bundle price!

Bye Bye Birthday Bouquet

I have absolutely loved using the Birthday Bouquet DSP. The colours and patterns are so pretty and easy to use. I'm really going to miss it...I guess I'll just have to console myself with some of the new papers in the new Annual Catalogue!
I've also used the Birthday Blooms stamp set on this card....I'm happy to say that this one is in our new Catalogue, as is the Brick Wall embossing folder :)
Make sure you grab the Pool Party Glitter Ribbon and the Label Bracket punch though, as they are both retiring. See the full Retiring List HERE or visit my STORE
