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!


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

Catch you soon

Back to the future- Part 2

Stampin Up demonstrator – Crafty Little Minx – Back to the future Part 2

I love Christmas! Well I love the run up to the day. Making cards and gifts. Buying and wrapping presents. Making the cakes and huge batches of mince pies etc. By the time I actually get to the 25th Dec I’m full of a cold and completely exhausted from all the seasonal parties and entertaining. So this year Dean (DH) decided we should escape and have a long honeymoon in South Africa. Isn’t he amazing! Six fabulous weeks of adventure & safari interspersed with four games of international cricket and the best bit was some of our friends came out to join us for New Year’s Eve and some of the tests.

Apologies, but the rest of this post is a little photo heavy.

Some of my highlights were visiting a private black rhino game in Lesotho

Spending New Year in Cape Town exploring and watching some fabulous cricket in an amazing setting

Going on a private safari in Botswana &  visiting Victoria Falls

I had the most amazing time and am busy organising my very very many photographs so I can document my memories in my new project life album. I will share some of the pages over the next few weeks.

Sending you thanks for looking

Back to the future- Part 1

Stampin Up demonstrator – Crafty Little Minx – Back to the future Part 1

I’ve been missing in action for a good while. Miss me? I got married last year and with a very full on full time job, classes and planning a wedding something had to give…… I think we feel we have to try and  do it all, but for me it just wasn’t happening and it was affecting me so much that I just had to sit myself down have a good talk to myself and plan what I could and couldn’t do. So this blog post is a little catch up before the main event starts the launch of the new 2016-17 Stampin Up! catalogue. I bet you can’t wait, so check back over the next few days for some fabulous sneak peaks and a bit more on recent events.

So back in September I married my partner of 15 years and although we planned a simple event that basically meant that I ended up spending lots of time making it perfect instead of handing it over to a hotel to do it their way. Of course my crafty passion had to factor through the day so I made all the wedding stationery, signs, menus and little favours. We were blessed to have such amazing friends and family to share our perfect day with us and we even managed to fit in a game of cricket, another of our great passions.


The next week I had classes and then myself and a couple of other SU Demo’s had a stall with a make n take in our local village fete and the sun shone and we had great fun as you can see below when the lady mayor dropped by with a couple of friends


A month later we were off on our ‘mini’ moon, 10 days travelling by train around Austria, Switzerland with a final three days in the Italian lakes. The weather was amazing for the time of year and we loved spending time wandering round exploring some amazing places.

No sooner were we back then I was fully engrossed in classes and events for Xmas. I typically have 1-2 classes per month, but in the run up to Xmas it really ramps up and I was also booked up for a couple of Crafter-noon parties as well.  Phew busy busy!!!


November saw one of my team heading off the Brussels with me for the first ever Stampin Up! OnStage live event. 800+ demonstrators all in one place, catching up, ‘swapping’, crafting, learning about new products   and business training. I adore Brussels, but unfortunately our visit was marred by the atrocities in Paris.IMG_1596

Its times like these that you realise how much of a family we all are in Stampin Up!, as we all found a way to support our French demonstrators some of whom were in Paris that night,be if by messages, poems, cards or hugs for those with us at the event. On that note I will leave you with one last photo of Brussels showing its solidarity and support along with many cities around the world in condemning the events of that night.
