I’m sure you have heard of the colour revamp.  I can’t wait to play with all the lovely new colours!!  I’m not sure which one I like the most!  There’s Highland Heather, Merry Merlot, Petal Pink, Shaded Spruce or the returning colours Mint Macaron, Poppy Parade or Coastal Cabana.

And have you see the Stamparatus?  It has become my favourite tool (just don’t tell my big shot!!)  You can now purchase this awesome tool.

I’m heading off to China for a week on holidays with my sister.  I’ll be back and sharing my new goodies after that.

Happy Stamping

I love new colours!

It’s an exciting day today!!  As a demonstrator, I am privileged to get to see the 2018-2019 Annual Catalogue today!

We have some exciting news to share with you.  We are getting a Colour Revamp with this new catalogue!  Yay!!  I always love to see what gorgeous new colours we get to play with.

Sadly it means that there are a few colours retiring.

We are saying farewell to Always Artichoke, Chocolate Chip, Elegant Eggplant, Island Indigo, Rose Red, Wild Wasabi, Soft Sky, Marina Mist, Pink Pirouette, Tangerine Tango, Tempting Turquoise and Wisteria Wonder.  Oh and also the 2016-2018 In-Colours, Dapper Denim, Emerald Envy, Peekaboo Peach and Sweet Sugarplum.  Now you might have noticed that Flirty Flamingo isn’t on the list.  That’s because it isn’t retiring!!  It is staying on as part of the Brights Collection!  Woo hoo!!

So first up, here are the new 2018-2020 In-Colours and the 2017-2019 In-Colours!!

Aren’t they fabulous!!  I can’t wait to see them in person.  I think I already love Lovely Lipstick!!

Without further ado, here are the brand new colours!!

How stunning are they!  I really love Merry Merlot and Highland Heather and Balmy Blue and Shaded Spruce and….  I think I like them all!  Lol

So here are all the new colour families.  Note that Whisper White, Very Vanilla and Basic Black are not included.  Don’t worry, they are still available but as a new grouping called Basic’s.

I can’t wait to get the new colours and re-organise my colours!!  It’s my second favourite part of crafting, organising craft supplies!

Stampin’ Up! have also taken the opportunity to update the ink pad cases as well. They’re now even easier to open, made to be stackable, and have stickers for the inside so you can be sure you’ve got the right ink colour when you stamp. The print is bigger, the colour label is larger, and the new lids fit even more snugly, for less ink evaporation over time.

So if your favourite colour is retiring, make sure you order quickly.  Stampin’ Up! have guaranteed Stamp Pads and Ink refills will be available until 7 May and then whilst supplies last.  Cardstock, embellishments, markers and the colour caddy are whilst supplies last from now.

Click here to go to my online store and order today!  Make sure you quote hostess code 9AVFJDRQ to receive a surprise gift from me.  Every player wins a prize!!

Catalogue Launch

I always love to have a catalogue launch at the start of a new annual catalogue.  It’s a great way to get the new catalogue in the hands of my customers and it also gives me an opportunity to spoil them as a thank you for supporting my little business.

This year, I combined my launch with the Biggest Morning Tea event run by the Cancer Council.  I think this is a really worthy case and I love to support them each year.  If you would love to donate to my event, you can click on the image below.

So here’s a couple of pictures of my set up on the day.  I decorated with the Pop of Paradise Specialty DSP which is just gorgeous.  I love the colour combo of Basic Black, Melon Mambo and Gold.

So onto the projects that we made on the day.  Stampin’ Up! gave demonstrators the opportunity to purchase products from the new catalogue prior to launch day and also gave us some suggested projects to make using these products!!  How nice of them!!

My first project was a little gift packet using the Kraft Tag a Bag Gift bags.  Have you noticed these before?  I certainly had not!!  You get 10 in the pack for only $6.25.  Using the Pop of Paradise stamp set, I gold embossed the leaves (why is it always windy on the day you do embossing!!).  Gold embossing on kraft paper looks A-MAZ-ING!!  A couple of strips of the DSP wrapped around the bag, some gold ribbon, a smaller piece of the Gold speciality DSP from the pack and a hand cut flamingo (yes, there were complaints about cutting it out!!) and banner, and voila, a gorgeous gift holder!!

For our second project, I got out the Gift Bag punch board and using a 6″ x 12″ piece of Kraft cardstock, I created the box (Using M as the size and not scoring the side triangles).

To speed things up on the day, I pre-cut the swirls and leaves from the Swirly Scribbles thinlits.  So then we got stamping with the swirls in So Saffron, Pool Party, Flirty Flamingo and Sweet Sugarplum from the Swirly Bird stamp set and glued down the petals using the fine tipped glue pen.  I love making banners with the Triple Banner punch.  I cut the whisper white piece to fit the middle sized marking on the punch and the kraft one for the smallest.  To stamp the sentiment, which is from the Thoughtful Banners stamp set, I started with the one in the middle, lining it up with the centre of the banner.  Then stamped on either side.

I used the Playful Palette washi tape on the end of the banner and added a bow of solid whisper white baker’s twine.  Doesn’t it look cute!!

I had my friend, Sarah Jane of Rustic Bakes by Sarah Jane, do the catering for me and I asked her to make some special biscuits for me so I could package them up for the ladies to take home.  They look great and taste pretty good too!!  She also made gorgeous cupcakes, and a chocolate slice and a passionfruit slice.  Nom, nom!!

I hope you enjoyed my projects, the ladies who came to my launch did!!

Happy Stamping
