New Summer mini catalogue!

For the first time ever, Stampin' Up! Have given us a summer mini which runs from May 1st to August 31st!

And wait until you see what's in it!

There's the Simply Scored board which allows you to score cards, make tile effect backgrounds, boxes, envelopes, easel cards, tri fold cards, rosettes/medallions the list goes on! It comes with its own stylus and markers for keeping your place and a hidden pocket to put extras. You can also order metric and diagonal plates that sit on top and make you board even more user friendly!

I will be experimenting a bit more in the month to follow so watch out for my simply scored post!

As for workshops, I held one in brae last week for my local lovely crafters and we had such a lovely night and I'm holding one on Wednesday in Lerwick at the Havly Cafe. If you'd like to come please email me at or phone on 01806 522482 and save your seats. We're going to see some new things and also use The big shot to make a felt brooch.

More news... Stampin' Up! Have changed their starter kit so that YOU can choose exactly what you'd like in it! It costs £99 and you can choose £130 products and also get £45 business supplies! The same great discounts and incentives apply to new demonstrators so it's a great time to start! Plus, anyone who buys the kit in the month of May will receive a free ticket to Convention worth £149! If you're thinking about signing up please don't hesitate to email or phone and ask as many questions as you like!

Back to the mini, I've made a few samples, let me know what you think!

Havly workshop in Lerwick (with free prizes!)

I'm hosting a workshop at the Havly cafe on Wednesday 7th March at 7.30 pm.

Everyone is welcome to come along for a relaxed evening of crafts where you will see a couple of demonstrations (im looking at heat embossing amongst other things) and then make your own project to take home with you!

There will be tea and cake provided and the chance to enjoy a night out that you can share with your friends and doesn't cost you a penny.

Also for everyone who comes I will enter your name into a hat to win freebies! If you bring a friend(s) you get more entries!

I met some lovely new people at my last workshop and I'm looking forward to the opportunity to meet more!

Please contact me at to save your seats (just let me know the number you need and a contact name and phone no) and look forward to seeing you there!

Two of my lovely team have been promoted! (Whoop whoop!) Sarah has been promoted to Bronze 2 and Diane to Bronze 3! They have worked so hard, are lovely ladies and I'm so delighted that they are part of the team.

I thought I'd share with you the card I made to congratulate them. They also get a stamp set of their choice from me as a big 'well done'!

I used Island Indigo card and ink, the Flirtatious Suite and Everyday Enchantment sale a bration papers (which are FREE!) the Medallion background stamp with Versamark, Fancy Flower punch and crocheted flower on top fixed with an In Color brad. The greeting was from the free sale a bration set Sprinkled Expressions.

I also wanted to let you know about a hostess club which I have a few spaces for.  This is a great way to earn freebies, get your choice Stampin' Up! goodies and spread the cost out over five months.  You also get freebies from me and of course, all copies of the current catalogues absolutely free!  At the moment with Sale a Bration on until the end of March, I am giving all my hostesses something for free, so how about being a hostess, without having to invite, host or get in any cakes! Bliss for busy women (and men!)

I also have lots of days available in March, April and May for people to host workshops!  It's such a fun monring/afternoon or evening, all you have to do is decide a date and time, tell me what you'd like to see or learn, invite people around using the lovely postcards I give you, and make a cup of tea when we're making the 'make and take' project that your friends will take away with them.  I don't charge you or anyone else a penny for the workshop, and you may earn a huge heap of Stampin' Up! products that you get to choose! So get in touch and let's set a date!

Also new! I have bought heaps upon heaps of beautiful Stampin' Up! ribbons and patterned papers and have cut them up into shares for you.  Ribbon shares of 1m or each colour of each type of ribbon.  Designer Series Paper (DSP) shares are 6 sheets of 6x6" papers, one in each of the double sided designs in a pack.

So rather than ordering 13 metres of ribbon in one colour, grab yourself 10 metres in each of the gorgeous colours available and wow your friends and relatives with beautiful and varied cards.  See tab at top for more details and how to order.

Any wise ladies out there who would like to join the hostess club, host a workshop or buy a share in ribbon or patterned paper, you can email me at

Postage stamp punch and confetti

Another quick post to share with you a card I made for a recent workshop. I used the confetti set which is awesome and the new postage stamp punch. I made it into a rectangle so that it fits onto the curly label punch.

Let me know what you think!

Workshop spaces still available for the end of Feb and through March. Get your freebies while you can!

Also watch this space for new ribbon shares and two hostess club spaces still available! See tab at the top for more details or email me at

Up and coming workshops! And lots of freebies

This is Sale a Bration time!  The best time of year for Stampin' Up! for three reasons:

1.  As a customer you get a free set or patterned papers from the Sale a Bration flyer for every £45 you spend!

2.  As a hostess, you get a free set or patterned papers from the Sale a Bration flyer when your workshop sales hit £300.

3.  If you buy the starter kit (costs £119) you get to choose a free set from either of the two current catalogues worth up to £44.95!  Making the contents of the kit worth nearly £300!  And, what's more the kit gives you everything you need to start stamping, means you get discount on your orders after that, including 30% off the first one, and... you can personalise it with your favourite card and ink colours and stamp sets.

See the freebies here:

On top of all of that...

I am hosting two workshops in the next two weeks.

Thursday 2nd February at my home in Brae.

Wednesday 8th February at the Havly Cafe in Lerwick.

On those nights I will be showing the following card:

This was designed by a French Stampin' Up! employee and I think it's stunning!

And as it's Sale a Bration time, I'm going to give away the following things over the next two workshops:

You are Loved stamp set
Creative Elements stamp set
Soft Suede cardstock
Rich Razzleberry ink
Crumb cake cardstock
Antique brads
Originals Berry Blossom die (for the Big Shot machine)
And anything else that I feel like on the night!

But you have to be there to be in with a chance of winning something!

So please book your free seats with me (places are limited at each workshop and some are already taken so don't hang about!) at or on 01806 522482

Look forward to seeing you there!

All things New!

Hello and Happy New Year!

I've been very lazy and relaxed over Christmas and am very excited to get productive again and starting creating things!  And with that in mind I wanted to show you the brand new things from Stampin' Up!

The amazing people at Stampin' Up! have decided to give us an extra Mini Catalogue this year (yippee!) with brand new stamps, punches, papers, fabrics and...a brand new line of jewellery.  But not just any jewellery, charms that you can customise for family, friends or your favourite outfit! 

You can see the book here or click on the picture to the right.

And I have an extra special one, as during Shelli's presentation onstage in Paris, she showed us European demos a beautiful design, which she then gave away... and I was lucky enough to get one! Will post a photo shortly of Shelli's beautiful design. 
To show all of you the amazing things in the new Mini, and for a chance for you to come and try it out, I'm hosting a workshop on Weds 11th January at 7.30pm at my house.

I would love for you to come and to bring a friend and make something for free that you can take home with you.  Plus a cuppa and some cake with friendly company!

I can't think of anything better when it's so cold and dark out.

Please email me at or facebook message me if you would like to come or know more.  You can also order through me from the new Mini, with delivery straight to your door at no extra cost!

I'm also starting a new hostess club shortly where you can order over five months and get a month with freebies worth £30 and all of the current catalogues.  Shout if you'd like to know more.
