I am very excited as there is a lot happening at the moment. You may be aware it is Stampin' Up!'s 25th Anniversary and they are having a lot of promotions.  That is definitely something to get excited about.

Coming soon, on 22 October, actually...drum roll please,
These thinlets are available in a circle or a label design. 
These make a flip card and have extra pieces that can make an exceptional card.  Once they were hard to do, now you can mass produce them.
They are perfect for announcements, invitations or Christmas cards.
They come in two designs , the circle or the label and each one has different die pieces with them.  Your choice, or you can get both!

OOPs, I've had a week or so off from blogging...My excuse is my sister and family were over from Perth, Australia and we did loads, it was her first time in the UK.  My brother is also here. It was the first time we had all been together for 11 years!

Not long now ladies or gents before this offer ends.... 3 DAYS!!

Don't regret it.. Only £25 to become a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator. 

What have you got to lose???? At least give it a go!!!

Make a little income from something you enjoy doing. 

Or join for just the discounts, who doesn't like to get 20% or 30% off their craft supplies, certainly me.
Have the chance to pre-order and play with products before they are released to the 'general' craft market.

Today - 5 October is World Card Making Day - did you know that?

To celebrate Stampin' Up! is holding a contest you won't want to miss!
After all, what's not to love about a holiday dedicated to card makers world wide.

Mind you I wish it was a holiday and I had the whole day to dedicate to something I love.  Instead I shall be doing something else I love - playing hockey, and I may just have a couple of hours later in the day to stamp.

Back to the contest.

There are two ways to enter:
  • E-mail a photo of a card, or of you making a card, made with Stampin’ Up! product on World Cardmaking Day to
  • Post a photo of a card, or of you making a card, made with Stampin’ Up! product on World Cardmaking Day on Instagram. Mention us by typing @stampinup and use the hashtag #wcmd2013 in the description.
This contest is open to everyone—demonstrators, customers, friends, spouses, children . . . you get the idea. However, there are a few conditions:
  • You must be over the age of 18 to win a prize.
  • You can enter as many times as you wish, but each entry must feature a different card.
  • Contest will last all day on 5 October, from 12:01 AM to 12:00 PM.

A selection of pictures will be posted to Stampin’ Up!’s World Cardmaking Day Pinterest Board
