The majority made the card I shared with you on Thursday, there was also the choice to make a 6x6 scrapbook page using the new Mosaic Madness Stamp Set, with the Quatrefancy DSP and matching Embossing Folder. Here it is:

People who joined me today have their own catalogue to drool over or to make their wish list. However, if you were unable to make it today, you can buy the New Idea Book & Catalogue directly from me for £3 or posted for £5. Please get in touch if you would like a copy!

In the meantime, I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Hello everyone,

First of all thank you for dropping by, I have been very busy today preparing for the Taster Session/ New Catalogue Launch Party happening this Saturday at the Hub, High Chelmer between 2 and 3pm.

So I wanted to share with you what you can make if you joined us. You will have a choice of card or 6x6 scrapbook page to make. This is the card we will be making - lots of new product here. Do you notice that little adornment - made by myself using the new clay! It such fun!

The Stamp Set used here is the Wildflower Meadows, which comes with a matching Embossing Folder! The Card colour is the new Bermuda Bay, with a beautiful Calypso Coral rose made with the clay, which comes in white so you can colour them in any colour you like!
Remember if you bring a friend with you, who I have not met, you get this little goody bag full of gorgeous card, DSP and ribbon, for you to get creative at home!

There are still some places left, so if you would like to have a go at making this card or the scrapbook page (to follow). Please get in touch or just turn up this Saturday 29th June 2-3pm!!

Stampin Up! Retired List and Blog Hop

Good morning all,

It's a lovely day as I sit here writing this post.   It's that time of the Stampin' Up! year where we have to say good bye to some of our favourite stamp sets and accessories, in order to make room for some new and exciting ones!

By going through the blog hop that starts here with Alison, you will get loads of ideas of what all the craftiness you can do with these different stamp sets and if you see something you love, which you can't live without, then get in touch to order it now, as these are only until stocks last!

If you have come over from the lovely Laura and her gorgeous project, welcome!

I will be sharing with you an invitation I made for my daughter's christening back in December. It's a beautiful stamp set, which I will be keeping to use again at her Holy Communion!

The Stamp Set used is called 'My Special Day', so before I leave so that you can continue with the blog hop and see what Sandra has for you (here), I would like to leave you with a photo of Lily's Special Day and a link to the retired list!

Have a good weekend!
