Christmas has flown past... A belated Merry Christmas to you! I can't believe it's almost 2010. The whole year seems to have passed so quickly.
A new Stampin' Up! promotion kicks off today and runs until the end of February 2010. Click here to view the sale-a-bration brochure online via the Stampin' Up! website. Alternatively, please contact me if you would like a copy of the brochure. There are four stamp sets to choose from and you can earn them completely free!
There are three ways to earn free stamp sets during sale-a-bration:-
Spend £45 (before shipping and handling) and earn one free sale-a-bration stamp set of your choice. Spend £90 and earn two... etc. There is no limit.
Host a workshop of at least £300 (net sales before shipping and handling) and earn one free sale-a-bration stamp set in addition to the existing hostess benefits. This is an ideal time to host a workshop if you were thinking of doing so anyway!
Join Stampin' Up! as a demonstrator during sale-a-bration and choose a free stamp set of your choice (excluding hostess sets) from the Idea Book & Catalogue (up to a maximum of £38.95 in value). Please contact me if you would like more information about becoming a demonstrator and/or if you have any queries about what it involves... you don't need a massive customer base (or, in fact, any customers at all - you can buy for yourself and get a discount on your products).

This is an anniversary card which was made - and delivered - rather late... not ideal, as it was for Ian! I told him it was better late than never!
I've used the new Love You Much stamp set for the card itself, although the 'happy anniversary' sentiment is from the Cheers & Wishes stamp set. The base cardstock is Chocolate Chip and the sentiment is stamped with the same colour of ink, so it doesn't show up terribly well in the photo. There's also a large heart (top left) stamped with Chocolate Chip ink which isn't terribly visible at all. I really like the Love You Much set... I've been playing with it quite a bit and you can do so much with it.

This is a sneak preview of a card made using two of the stamps from a stamp set which you will be able to earn for free for a limited period commencing on 30th December! Contact me by email (by clicking here) for more information.
I've also used the star punch and "To The Nines" designer patterned papers. It's masculine card for one of my cousins. Cards for men are often really difficult to make, I think, although I found these papers to be ideal. I don't like to use ribbon on male cards, so I've used the stars to make it a bit more interesting (and, for the same reason, some of them are overhanging the edges of the card... albeit it still fits in a standard size Stampin' Up! envelope).
Again, apologies for the poor lighting. It was a case of poor photo or no photo. Once again, the card had to make a sharp exit before daylight!

There's a brilliant new Stampin' Up! promotion starting soon. It kicks off on 30th December. Please email me if you'd like more information. Existing customers: leaflets have been posted to you and should be with you soon if you have not already received them. Details will also be posted on this blog shortly.
Lastly... I'm having my blog re-designed. Hopefully it'll "go live" soon!
