It’s arrived !!! Here is my first box of new stash from the STAMPIN’ UP! NEW ANNUAL CATALOGUE which launched on 1st October.
This was quite restrained for me but for 1st ‘hit’ wasn’t bad. Items were mainly bought around the 300 swaps I will be making for SU European Convention at the beginning of November, cardstock and re-inkers from the New 2012-2014 In-Colours in Midnight Muse, Summer Starfruit, Gumball Green, Primrose Petals and Raspberry Ripple, which I think is my new favourite.
My biggest ever order went in for the North Norfolk Retreat Weekend that Alison and I are running in a couple of weeks. I am so pleased to be running this weekend with one of my downline with slight OCD tendencies ….. she has done a fantastic job of working everything out in spreadsheet format and is now busily preparing our class kits, whilst I am stuck in an office job.
Whilst it’s exciting to use all new products, it’s a bit close for comfort timewise when SU unfortunately sent 14 of the wrong stamp set for class freebie. Fear not, everything is in hand to still arrive in time (although fingers firmly crossed !!).
I have some lovely half-price items too but they went in the shipment to Alison so I have to wait a bit longer until I can collect those :-).
Some of the extra bits were the new shaped butterfly which I am loving and have some lovely ideas spinning round in my head already. The material is for a project I have been working on for a while which was first inspired by a German Demonstrator I met at last years Convention and will be for my roomie/teamie Convention gifts. If they are a success, the rest of the team will have in time for Christmas.
Please feel free to contact me if you wish to place an order or find out more about becoming a demonstrator with the fantastic offer on earlier recent post.
Happy craftin’ until next time !
