Sale-a-bration is here!!

Oh my days I am so excited today as not only is it the launch of the new Spring Summer  catalogue but Sale-a-bration Stampin` Up!s best sale is also on.

The Spring summer catalogue can be seen here or if you would like a hard copy catalogue contact me at mycraftypottingshed@gmail.com

There are so many exciting new products for youto look at and love!

As I have mentioned once or twice before whilst Sale-a-bration is on from now until 31st March and for every £45 you spend you can pick a free product from this brochure

I will show you some more projects using these fab products soon and I personally think the papaers are to die for they are yummy!

Also another new product launched today is the Texture boutique embossing machine

Its a great portable way of adding texture to your projects and if you buy the machine along with the 3 new folders in the Spring Summer catalogue you will have spent your £45 to qualify for a free Sale a Bration product and guesss what? We only have an embossing folder, so I think thats quite good value for the machine and 4 folders!

Contact me for more information

Do you like this stamp set? no I hear you shout we love it!!  Its the new Happy water colour coming in only a few days.

My undefined stamp

At convention we got to try the new undefined carve your own stamp set. I didn't have much time and wanted to make a monogram stamp of my initials, as you can see it looks quite rough but stamps out well.

Team swaps and a sneaky peak of sale a bration 2014

Today we have our quaterly team training in Peterborough and it really is a fab day , we get to meet up with the team and there is usually about 40 of us, try out new products and get updated on all the company news.

As with all of our team events we participate in swaps, the theme this time is sale-a-bration as it is open at the end of the month. It starts from 28th January and for every £45 you spend you get to pick a FREE item from the speacial booklet.

Now these products are absolutely fab and to wet your appetite I am going to show you a little sneak peak, the bunting on this card is made with the new banner punch that you can earn for free shortly.

I have tried these in all different colour combinations including strawberry slush, pistaschio pudding, coastal cabana, midnight muse, wisteria wonder, island indigo, pool party, calypso coral, baked brown sugar to name a few.

The background is "splodged" with the gorgeous grunge stamp set and the sentiment is from itty bitty and as always I have a favourite combination and it has to be the blues this time

Dont forget you can order your products at my online shop or email me at mycraftypottingshed@gmail.com and you will soon see my new classes being advertised and I hope to speak to you all soon

A different gift bag

At convention you get to do some make and takes, they are set up to use the stamp sets we get as part of our package.

As convention was soo busy I bought a lot of mine home with me to do and I decided to use a different stamp set with this tag a bag kit.

I love the ideas I picked up at convention and hadn't thought of scoring the bag and slicing along the bottom to make a lunch style bag, I was quite pleased with it.

Happy New Year!!

Happy New Year!! 

I hope you all had a good one? Well its the first of January and one of my new years resolutions is to post more on my blog. I know I have neglected you all of late and I am going to try and do at least one blog a week.

As we speak I am scheduling some posts as I have just found five projects I still haven't shown you yet so that will give me a head start and we have our quarterly Stampin Superstars training later this month. 

This is great fun and we get shown lots of fab projects and get to try products and as some of you know we have the fabulous Sale-a-bration at the end of January so I'm sure we will be using a lot of those products so keep your eyes peeled for sneak peaks! Just one of the many reasons I love being part of Stampin` Up! so why not contact me to find out more about joining my team?

Anyway as I said I have a project to show you and I promise this is the last Christmas card you will see for a while on my blog.

I have used the Christmas collectibles stamp here and matching punch, using the colours smoky slate, Island indigo and Coastal cabana which is fast becoming one of my favourite colour combos, the next photo is a stepped up photo

This one has the silver glitter paper,frosted finishes embellishment and ruffle trim ribbon.

If you want to make cads like this you can order online by clicking on pictures below and it ill take you direct to my online shop
