New Summer mini catalogue!

For the first time ever, Stampin' Up! Have given us a summer mini which runs from May 1st to August 31st!

And wait until you see what's in it!

There's the Simply Scored board which allows you to score cards, make tile effect backgrounds, boxes, envelopes, easel cards, tri fold cards, rosettes/medallions the list goes on! It comes with its own stylus and markers for keeping your place and a hidden pocket to put extras. You can also order metric and diagonal plates that sit on top and make you board even more user friendly!

I will be experimenting a bit more in the month to follow so watch out for my simply scored post!

As for workshops, I held one in brae last week for my local lovely crafters and we had such a lovely night and I'm holding one on Wednesday in Lerwick at the Havly Cafe. If you'd like to come please email me at or phone on 01806 522482 and save your seats. We're going to see some new things and also use The big shot to make a felt brooch.

More news... Stampin' Up! Have changed their starter kit so that YOU can choose exactly what you'd like in it! It costs £99 and you can choose £130 products and also get £45 business supplies! The same great discounts and incentives apply to new demonstrators so it's a great time to start! Plus, anyone who buys the kit in the month of May will receive a free ticket to Convention worth £149! If you're thinking about signing up please don't hesitate to email or phone and ask as many questions as you like!

Back to the mini, I've made a few samples, let me know what you think!

Havly workshop in Lerwick (with free prizes!)

I'm hosting a workshop at the Havly cafe on Wednesday 7th March at 7.30 pm.

Everyone is welcome to come along for a relaxed evening of crafts where you will see a couple of demonstrations (im looking at heat embossing amongst other things) and then make your own project to take home with you!

There will be tea and cake provided and the chance to enjoy a night out that you can share with your friends and doesn't cost you a penny.

Also for everyone who comes I will enter your name into a hat to win freebies! If you bring a friend(s) you get more entries!

I met some lovely new people at my last workshop and I'm looking forward to the opportunity to meet more!

Please contact me at to save your seats (just let me know the number you need and a contact name and phone no) and look forward to seeing you there!

For more info go to or view Te catalogues at the top right of the page.

Two of my lovely team have been promoted! (Whoop whoop!) Sarah has been promoted to Bronze 2 and Diane to Bronze 3! They have worked so hard, are lovely ladies and I'm so delighted that they are part of the team.

I thought I'd share with you the card I made to congratulate them. They also get a stamp set of their choice from me as a big 'well done'!

I used Island Indigo card and ink, the Flirtatious Suite and Everyday Enchantment sale a bration papers (which are FREE!) the Medallion background stamp with Versamark, Fancy Flower punch and crocheted flower on top fixed with an In Color brad. The greeting was from the free sale a bration set Sprinkled Expressions.

I also wanted to let you know about a hostess club which I have a few spaces for.  This is a great way to earn freebies, get your choice Stampin' Up! goodies and spread the cost out over five months.  You also get freebies from me and of course, all copies of the current catalogues absolutely free!  At the moment with Sale a Bration on until the end of March, I am giving all my hostesses something for free, so how about being a hostess, without having to invite, host or get in any cakes! Bliss for busy women (and men!)

I also have lots of days available in March, April and May for people to host workshops!  It's such a fun monring/afternoon or evening, all you have to do is decide a date and time, tell me what you'd like to see or learn, invite people around using the lovely postcards I give you, and make a cup of tea when we're making the 'make and take' project that your friends will take away with them.  I don't charge you or anyone else a penny for the workshop, and you may earn a huge heap of Stampin' Up! products that you get to choose! So get in touch and let's set a date!

Also new! I have bought heaps upon heaps of beautiful Stampin' Up! ribbons and patterned papers and have cut them up into shares for you.  Ribbon shares of 1m or each colour of each type of ribbon.  Designer Series Paper (DSP) shares are 6 sheets of 6x6" papers, one in each of the double sided designs in a pack.

So rather than ordering 13 metres of ribbon in one colour, grab yourself 10 metres in each of the gorgeous colours available and wow your friends and relatives with beautiful and varied cards.  See tab at top for more details and how to order.

Any wise ladies out there who would like to join the hostess club, host a workshop or buy a share in ribbon or patterned paper, you can email me at
