Convention update .......


Im back from the most amazing weekend ever
The Stampin'Up European Convention was mind blowing
Jammed full of products, demonstrations, samples and fabulously talented people

There is far to much for me to share in one post so I will be sharing with you over the next few days

So I mentioned that we got to see some sneaky peaks of new products
well while at convention a new product was launched here in the UK


Have you ever wanted a stamp but couldn’t find the perfect image? 
Maybe you have a special family logo or a sketch you’d like to have as a stamp. 
Well now you can! 
Undefined is Stampin’ Up!’s new stamp carving product line. 
You define the rubber stamp any way you want.
When you carve your very own stamp, you will have an entirely new and different creative experience. And when you’re finished, you will have created a one-of-a-kind stamp!

Watch the video to see more

I know you want to get your hands on the kit and start carving your own masterpieces. 
Here are the item numbers you’ll need (I suggest adding a refill kit on your first order . . . trust me, you’re gonna want it).

Product of the month

Hello again and happy Hump day :)

I hope you all had a fantastic bonfire Night last night :)
We stayed in last night but stood watching the fireworks across Wigan from my sons bedroom as the view from there is absolutely fabulous.
We had the joy of the fireworks while staying warm and dry :)

Its time for me to tell you all about my FABULOUS Product of the month

The Envelope punch board
(133774 £17.95)

This product is new to Stampin' up and only went on sale 1st november!!!

Create your own envelopes in up to 66 different sizes (not to mention a million different colour and pattern options depending on the paper you want to use). 

It’s fabulously easy to use.
It looks intimidating at first glance, but  all you have to do is measure for the first punch and from there you just turn and score it couldn't be easier.

 It’s small and light enough that you could use it while watching a football/rugby match, at a park, at a friend’s for craft night—anywhere. 

It even has a clever scoring tool as well as a punch that lets you create rounded corners on your envelopes.

It’s easy to keep it all together, the stylus storage compartment and two punches are designed into the tool so you don’t have a bunch of little pieces to keep track of (even the instructions are printed right on the tool so you won’t lose them!)

The price is terrific - It is only £2.50 more than a punch!!!!

It will be in next year’s annual catalogue, so it’s here to stay.

The instructions come in both metric and imperial - no add-ons needed.

It does so much more than make envelopes
I have seen:
Wallets for vouchers or cash
Exploding boxes
Gift tags
and much much more :)

Here is a video demonstration from Stampin' up to show you how easy it is :)

Over the next month I will be sharing with you some of the projects that have been made with this FABULOUS tool.

So what are you waiting for??

along with the Naughty and Nice Rotary Stamp
(132278 £5.50)
