My Top 5 Christmas buys – 2017

Stampin Up demonstrator – Crafty Little Minx – My Top 5 Christmas buys – 2017

Today we have free postage so its a chance to add some ‘I can’t live without’ items to your cart.

These are my current favourites but as I love pretty much all the contents or both of the current catalogues I may well have changed my mind tomorrow!

1. Get those Christmas cards ready in a jiffy!

Holiday17_p32a

If you saw my post yesterday you would have seen this year’s stunning project kit which makes 20 cards and is just £18. The cards are great quality and come with sumptuous gold liners for the envelopes included in the pack. whats not to love?

2 Dec the halls!

I just love the fact that some many of the products in the seasonal catalogue have multiple uses, but the Tags and trimmings bundle is my top buy in this category.  With the ability to use this die to quickly make multitudes of multicoloured stockings. This is a true value for money investment piece that you will want to use over and over again. You can make advent calender’s, tree decorations, table favours……. The sky is the limit!

3. Wrap it up!

For me its the labels that form one of the biggest elements of a my gift wrapping planning and the very versatile Merry Little Labels which we used it at our recent retreat completely fits the bill.

Our attendees loved this set with its coordinating punch and apart from copious amounts of gift labels we have been using the stamps to make cards, wine bottle wraps, and the wrapping paper itself!

4.0 Gift giving 

I love gift giving and if its totally handmade all the better. These Mini Pizza boxes fit the bill for flexibility and we have been using these  to gifts packs of mini cards,  gift cards, jewellery and home made fudge and peppermint creams.

I have a little stack of these pre decorated at the ready to grab for a last minute gift or I may use them as table favours on the run up to the big day!

5.0 Memory Keeping

Finally I have to say the Memories and More card pack is the perfect way to showcase all the fabulous Christmas memories that will accumulate on your phone over the festive season. Get those photos printed and preserve those memories forever. But if you cant wait,  this pack is also multi adaptable and makes great gift tags and  quick card fronts

Stampin’ Up! Stamparatus – a new way to stamp!

Stampin’ Up! Stamparatus – a new way to stamp!

As mentioned earlier in the week I was away in Solihull last weekend. One of the biggest announcements made, (to much whooping and hollering) is the launch of the long-awaited Stamparatus (Stampin’ Up!’s exclusive design on a stamp placement tool!)

How is the different from other tools on the market?

For one, it was developed by demonstrators like me who work with customers like you!

The Stamparatus will change the way you stamp, and before long, you’ll wonder how you crafted without it!

Here’s a video sharing the tool with you….

Why do YOU need one?

You’ll fall in love with stamping all over again when you learn everything you can do with it!

  • Make multiples with ease.
  • Consistently stamp crisp, clean images.
  • If you want a darker impression, apply more ink and restamp — no need to start again.
  • Make fewer mistakes, saving time and money.
  • Easily create 2-step, 3-step, and 4-step stamped images using reversible plates.
  • Develop new and specialised stamping techniques with adjustable stamping plates and precision placement.

I need product details!

  • Compatible with Stampin’ Up!’s red rubber and photopolymer stamps.
  • Foam mat to use with photopolymer stamps.
  • Rulers and gridlines for quick measuring.
  • Two open sides so you can stamp on larger paper.
  • Reversible plates, so a total of four surfaces to work with.
  • Two long magnets to hold the paper in place.
  • Magnet storage areas.
  • The price just £44!

How do I get one?

Great news!

While these are still in manufacturing mode, you can reserve your Stamparatus from tomorrow to be one of the first to get your hands on it! At 9pm on Thursday 16th November, you can participate in the first of three different reservation periods. Simply log into my Stampin’ Up! online store and follow the prompts.

You may have some other questions, so here are some answers…..

I am soooo excited! I have tried some of the other products on the market, but they dont come close to delivering all of the features of this product and my fellow demonstrators all agree.

So, don’t forget, from 9pm tomorrow night, you can reserve yours on my online shop. You won’t need to pay for it until it is ready to be shipped. BUT these reservation windows are on a While Stocks Last basis so I don’t think that they will last until these finish dates. I can’t wait!!!

I am grateful to all my customers for their loyal support so should you wish to place an order via my online shop please check out the following

  • Is your Stampin’ Up! order less than £150? If so, use the current Reward Code and receive a free gift from me along with other perks!
    • 37J7VFWB

  • If your order is over £150 please do not use the code as you will be your own Hostess and get your own rewards to spend!

This post is photo heavy and full of people having huge amounts of fun and a couple of sneak peaks from the soon to be released 2018 spring summer catalogue.

But did I mention that I love being a demonstrator? Not only do I get early access to new products and earn discounts on my purchases, but I also get to hang out with these amazingly talented people.

I’m part of the hugely talented Royal Stampers headed up by Pip Todman. We are a little crazy, but its always  a delight to spend time with them.

The Royal stampers from part of a wider group of Stampin’ Stars headed up by the fabulous Natalie O’Shea who was honoured many times on stage and towards the end of the event was recognised in the top 50 out of 50,000 demonstrators in the world.

We all get on so well and it was great to shake a pom pom with Sam Hammond, Rebecca Willmore, Monica Gale, Jay Soriano, Barry Selwood, Lavinia Gruizinga & No 1 demo support Chris from our European Head Office.

So do you want to see a sneaky peaky?

Stampin Up demonstrator – Crafty Little Minx – Christmas in July – Peace on Earth

Happy Saturday everyone. Its been quite rainy and blustery here over the last few days with almost wintery tones.  So it felt a little more appropriate to be posting the cards from my recent Christmas in July class. Today’s card was the first design that popped in my head when I saw this fabulous new bundle.

sucraftylittleminx.wordpress.com DSCN3867

The background is sponged to give an ombre sky and was really fun to do. what do you think?

sucraftylittleminx.wordpress.com DSCN3866

I just love the cute night sky die  and took that as a lead to paint some highlights on the tree line. I then added a little wink of stella to make the trees literally shine in the moonlight.

Christmas in July – Carols of Christmas

Stampin Up demonstrator – Crafty Little Minx – Christmas in July – Carols of Christmas

Well this weekend I’m going to continue with showcasing the cards we made at my recent Christmas in July class using the fabulous new Carols of Christmas Stamp set and dies bundle which is available to purchase from Tuesday 1st August as a pre-order.

This is another super simple card that would be really easy to make in bulk for Christmas, but this time I paired it with some of the products from the annual Catalogue.

sucraftylittleminx.wordpress.com DSCN3861

I love monochromatic style cards. The base is matted with embossed vellum with a simple swirly scribbles die in gold foil which really sets off the stunning double trees dies in the new Card Front builder thinlits dies

DSCN3862

Now I bet you have already spotted that the vellum is stuck down and that’s notoriously tricky to do without showing the adhesive. My top TIP is to carefully emboss the background so it hangs over the edges of the pre-cut vellum and then use the embossing to hide a thin layer of multipurpose tombow glue. Simples! 

sucraftylittleminx.wordpress.com DSCN3863

Love this card? Place an order by 31st July and you will receive the class tutorial for this card and the other projects in this class.

Update – Daisy Punch

Stampin Up demonstrator – Crafty Little Minx – Update – Daisy Punch

I’m delighted to share that the Daisy Punch is back in stock several days earlier than expected! So the item numbers for the punch and the stamp set/punch combo bundle have been turned back on. Thanks for your patience as we waited for the restock of  what has turned out to be the most popular punch in the last five years!

DSCN3762

Love this card? It’s one that featured in our recent Summer Stampin School and is a very quick and simple design. Place an order in July and you will receive the tutorial for this card

NOTE: I would not wait around too long to order this punch. I suspect that it may sell out again soon based on the number of questions I have received and the chatter on face book. Its always tricky for the Stampin’ Up procurement team to anticipate the demand for a particular product. So as in this case it can take a little time to manufacture and transport   So, word to the wise… order it sooner rather than later! 

 

Thanks for looking
