Hostess Code for JULY 2019  – Z4XHFGSY

Please use my Hostess Code on your order if it is UNDER £150, as this helps me gather little extras that I can use for Thank You gifts for customer’s whose order is below this amount, but if your order is OVER £150 you will be able to choose extra products for yourself under Stampin’ Rewards

Apologies for being MIA since last August – had lots happening…..
I’ve updated the Hostess Code for you to use during April and May 2019 and I’m just GOT to let you know that there’s a spanking new catalogue due out VERY, VERY SOON!  More details will follow.
I made these little Easter treat bags and the littlies LOVED them.  All made with current Stampin’ Up! products.  I just love that sunny Daffodil Delight yellow!
Enjoy this lovely weather, and I’ll be back soon x

Wednesday 1st August 2018

Stampin’ Up! have offered us another great deal!  For every £45 you spend between now and the end of August, you  earn a bonus coupon of £4.50 that you can redeem in September. It also applies to multiples of £45 – so spend £90 in August and earn £9 in coupons, £135 and earn £13.50 in coupons etc.

After you order you will be emailed a code from Stampin’ Up! and, importantly, you will need to ensure that you DO NOT DELETE those emails, as the codes cannot be regenerated. They are randomly generated so if you lose or delete them, then you will have lost out on the offer.

This promotion was very successful last year – and looks like it will be again this year AND you can use your bonus coupons against products from the new Autumn/Winter catalogue that will be available from 1st September. Win Win!

AMAZING joining offer beginning Sunday July 1st.

Stampin’ Up’s normal joining offer is pretty amazing  – you spend just £99 and choose ANY products that you want up to a value of £130 and get free shipping.

But just for the month of July, you can choose any ONE of the 4 Core Colour Collections or the 2 In Colour Collections as an EXTRA FREEBIE!  Considering the collections normally cost £63 that’s a fantastic extra bonus!  Pay £99 and get £193 worth of products, with no postage to pay either!

It’s only for July, so don’t hang about if you’re after a real bargain – especially with all the newly released colours.   And don’t forget, just because you sign up as a demonstrator to get all that stuff for only £99, you don’t have to do ANYTHING apart from have fun using all your new crafty goodies – AND you’ll get 20% discount on anything else you buy until the end of JANUARY 2019!!!!!!

Get in touch if you have any questions – I’d love to help you out.

Will update this page within the next couple of days with more information – it’s exciting stuff!  New products, discounts, freebies!!!!


Sunday 1st October 2017

Great new offer from Stampin’ Up! today.  From 1st to 10th October you can get Notecard and envelope sets, and selected stamps sets at 15% off their regular price. There’s also a good deal on the Fast Fuse tape runner – if you buy one you get 2 x refills FREE!  The refills are normally £7 each!  See HERE

There’s also a deal on DSP (Designer Series Paper) for the whole of October, where you can buy 3 x packs of DSP and choose a 4th pack for FREE!  The trick here is to use the free part of the offer on the more expensive specialty DSP packs 😉  See HERE

Hope everyone is enjoying playing with their new stamp sets from the Autumn/Winter catalogue. I love my Hearts Come Home bundle.

An added extra comes when you join Stampin’ Up! – you get to see and order some products earlier than customers ………………  Excited about tomorrow (25th) because that’s just what’s going to be happening then!

Also finishing at the end of this month is the BONUS DAYS offer – where you get a £4.50 coupon for every £45 you spend – then you use the coupons against your orders in August (although this offer can’t be used in conjunction with the Christmas in July joining offer)

Saturday 1st July 2017

Today is the 60th birthday of a friend I first met when I was 5 years old and had just started Primary School.  I know she’s a lover of all things Mickey Mouse so I decided her card had to be along MM lines.  Posted it off to her, but don’t know her reaction yet – I hope she likes it, as I had great fun making it!         UPDATE: she loved it!!!

Monday 16th January 2017

Just to let you know that the Stitched Shapes Framelits are available to buy again from today!   They’re a great addition to your stamping tools – they make even simple cards look fantastic. The Item # is 145372 for your order form.  Buy them HERE.

Wednesday 4th January 2017

Happy New Year – and say hello to our new SPRING/SUMMER 2017 catalogue along with SALE-A-BRATION !!!!!!

During Sale-A-Bration, for every £45 you spend (before shipping and handling), you get to choose a FREE product from the Sale-A-Bration catalogue!

But that’s not all – oh no – if you join Stampin’ Up! during the Sale-A-Bration period then, in addition to being able to choose £130 worth of stuff from the Annual and Spring/Summer catalogues for only £99 you can choose an EXTRA two stamp sets for FREE / NOTHING /  NADA / GRATIS (and I can tell you now that there are stamp sets in the catalogue that you would normally pay £47 and £44 for – totalling £91 – or £94 if you chose 2 of the more expensive set – WHAT A BARGAIN!).   And, of course, from then on you buy from yourself (rather than from me) and you get 20% discount on anything you buy – what’s not to like????   As always, if you choose to join just to get the extra £31 worth of products and never buy anything again – that’s cool.  Nobody hounds you to buy more or sell anything but remember that you’re still entitled to the 20% discount for 3 months after you join. After the 3 months, if you don’t meet the minimum spend amount of £227 in catalogue prices within that period, you just revert back to being a customer – no need to do anything, no resignation letter, nothing. Simples (to quote a certain meerkat)!

If you want to know more about these fantastic offers just CONTACT me, or click on the SALE-A-BRATION or JOIN buttons here.  I want everyone to get THE very best deals from Stampin’ Up!

Autumn-Winter Catalogue is LIVE!!!!    You can place an order online from 01.00 (GMT) today.

There’s lots of lovely stuff in there.   My personal favourite is the Cable Knit Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder on page 13 – GORGEOUS!    It’s thicker than the normal Stampin’ Up! embossing folders so you only use one plate to run it through your Big Shot.

Check out the new catalogue HERE and contact me if you’d like a paper copy sent out to you.  Enjoy!

SPECIAL OFFERS – Also new today is 25% discount on selected products from the Annual Catalogue over the first 3 weeks of September.  This weeks offers are HERE but remember to check every Thursday for the new ones and take advantage of your discount!

You can save 25% on selected Annual Catalogue products with different deals each week over the 3 weeks – more details tomorrow folks!


Tuesday 30th August 2016


Opened my new Thoughtful Branches Thinlits pack tonight and removed the dies from the icky-sticky holding them onto the package card to find some of that lovely icky-sticky was still stuck to parts of the back of the thinlits.  Out comes my trusty rubber (‘eraser’ for our American friends).

When you rub the sticky parts with the rubber they disappear – much less faff than using baby wipes or other ‘wet’ stuff that then needs to be cleaned off itself.    BTW this is a good time of year to stock up on rubbers because of the new school year (should this be another TIP ALERT?)

Job done!


Monday 29th August 2016

This is the first post EVER in my blog!   Today I made a birthday card and used one of the products from the new Autumn-Winter Catalogue – the Copper Foil card.  Ooh, it’s so bright and shiny and I love it already!  I did add in some bronze glitter card that I had in my stash from pre-Stampin’ Up! (as we all love a bit of glitter don’t we) because SU hasn’t produced the Glimmer Paper in bronze ……………… so far.

29.08.16 - Jen's birthday card (19 with white watermark) (2)

I used the Swirly Scribbles Thinlit Dies from the Swirly Bird Stamp Set & Swirly Scribbles Thinlit Dies Bundle as well as THREE stamp sets – Gorgeous Grunge, Perpetual Birthday Calendar and Vertical Greetings.
