The new catalogue is here - Celebrate with a blog hop


It's here, it's finally here! The Stampin' Up! 2014-2015 annual catalogue is here and to celebrate I am taking part in my first blog hop. Welcome if you have hopped over from either Nikki Acton or Fiona Whitten's blogs and if you are one of my regular readers don't forget to check out the other 16 blogs! There is so much to say in this post but lets start with a couple of cards using new and current products. 

As we are saying hello to the brand new catalogue there is a weak theme of just saying hi between my two cards today. This first one uses two brand new stamp sets and two brand new colours. I love the Work of Art stamp set as it can make great backgrounds and I think it combines well with Gorgeous Grunge. For the background I simply inked the stamp really well and then stamped it three times without re-inking or pressing too hard. The sentiment is from one of the brand new hostess sets and is called Hello There. Don't forget that in order to get any of the lovely hostess sets you either need to host a party (check out the tab at the top for more details) or place an order with me for over £150 to gain hostess credits to use on free stuff!


My second card today is using a couple of products that you will already know of but uses the brand new colours and Designer Series Paper Stack as well. Have you noticed yet that I really love this years new In Colours? I get the feeling I will be using them a lot! I think these owls are just so cute and the paper stack just seemed to fit really nicely for the front of the owl. This punch is so easy to use as it just cuts everything perfectly so that all you have to do is layer them up. So that my speech bubble looked nice and neat I used the coordinating framelit die because as you can see from my hand cut branch, my cutting skills leave a lot to be desired! 


So now that I have shown you some of the new items in the catalogue I wanted to offer you all a couple of incentives. If you don't have a copy of the new catalogue yet then drop me an email and I can get one out to you, they cost £4.50 including postage however you will then receive £5 off your first order of £25 or more made through me. For the second incentive, does anyone remember these?


This is the Eye-Catching Ikat Photopolymer stamp set that Stampin' Up! were giving away a month or so ago and are not available for purchase. I have 7 of these left over from my own orders (yes I spent a lot!!) so the first 7 people to make an order of £35 or more, made through me, will receive one of these lovely stamp sets. If you make an order through the Stampin' Up! online store and put me as your demonstrator I will then post this set out separately. I can't wait to make my first proper order of the brand new products today, can you?

That's it from me today so don't forget to either hop forward to Fiona Whitten or back to Nikki Acton using the buttons below.
