Wow! So much is going on with Stampin' Up! at the moment, retirement lists have been launched today, Project Life is just around the corner AND you can join my team for as little as £50 at the moment... where do I begin?!! Eeek!
Think I will start here:
With a new Annual Catalogue about to launch at the start of July 2014, there will be a huge amount of lovely new Stampin' Up! goodies coming with it - but, to make room for all those brand new spangly things that are on the horizon, we must first say goodbye to some current products...
This is where the Retirement List comes in. This is a list (well, strictly speaking two lists) of all the stamp sets and accessories that will be discontinued (or, "retired") to make way for the new products... The goodies on this retirement list are on a limited stock, only while it lasts, basis - so once they are all sold, they are gone for good... Needless to say that things will sell out fast - especially the 2012-2014 In Color items and certain punches etc. I should imagine.
So, if you want to get any items that appear on the list, do so QUICKLY - to avoid disappointment... Click on the photo to go straight to my online shop where you can see what is on the retirement list and place your order:
They WILL sell out and fast, so don't hang around - once they are gone, they are gone! I would urge you to buy items you like that are on the retiring list sooner rather than later - and I would suggest you buy them via my online shop, to prevent any disappointment from a delay in getting your list to me via email or phone call, me placing the order and then me finding out by then that the items have sold out.
Remember, if you order online from me before 6th June 2014 and use the hostess code H2DZVX6U, I will give you a free gift as a thank you. (N.B. this is an offer from me, personally, not from Stampin' Up!)
Also, if you order before the end of 31st May and spend £60 you will get a free photopolymer stamp set too (as long as they haven't sold out by then, either!) If you have any problems or queries, please do not hesitate to ask me and I will be happy to help :O)

SPECIAL OFFER TO JOIN MY TEAM:
For a very limited time, you can join my team for only £50. Your starter kit will include up to £55's worth of products, plus the usual business pack of catalogues, order forms etc worth an additional £45. This offer runs out on 30th June. During the offer period, you can still, if you prefer, choose to join with the regular £99 starter kit (which gives you £130 worth of products, plus the usual business pack).
If you join before the end of June you will be able to order sneak-peek products from the new Annual Catalogue too and see them before regular customers will. Click the picture above to get more information, or contact me and I will be happy to answer any questions you may have! Clicking on the "join the fun" tab on my online shop will also give you more information about joining and becoming a demonstrator, too!
STAMPIN' UP! MEETS PROJECT LIFE:
I am sure, that by now, you will have heard the exciting news that Stampin' Up! have joined forces with Becky Higgins and will be offering exclusive Stampin' Up! Project Life products which will make scrapbooking easier, faster and in the co-ordinated colourful way that Stampin' Up! does best. Some of these #PLxSU products will be launched for sale ahead of the main Annual Catalogue on, I believe, the 10th June.
For those of you who don't know, or who haven't heard about Project Life, it is a really quick way of documenting your life and memories in special, scrapbook pages that have divided pockets for your photographs (and other memorabilia) to be easily and quickly slotted into. Thus, it's all about spending more of your time making memories and less time scrapbooking them!
Recently, I was honoured and delighted to be asked, by Stampin' Up! Europe, to do a Creative Presentation using some of these Stampin' Up! Project Life products (such as stamps, pages, journalling cards etc etc) as a top secret, sneak peek presentation, on stage, in front of 360+ excited UK demonstrators at the UK Regional Training Day in Telford a few weeks ago!
Until today, I have not been allowed to show you any of the things that I made for the presentation, but, as the demonstrator pre-order for the selected Project Life products began today, I am delighted to say that I am now allowed to show them! It has been REALLY hard not to let the cat out of the bag, as I have absolutely fallen in love with the products and their versatility! There are many uses for all the Stampin' Up! Project Life products - not just the originally-intended album pages - and because the journalling cards all coordinate perfectly with the Stampin' Up! colours (and cardstock, papers, ribbons, inks, embellishments etc etc.) the possibilities are pretty much endless: greeting cards, gift-wrapping, home decor and organisation etc. are just some ideas for #PLxSU items!
Here is just one page layout that I made for the presentation:

I am passionate about plants and I love to take photographs of beautiful flowers. The happy colours of these gorgeous Spring flowers just cried out to be matched with the colours of the words on this inspirational quote on one of the Everyday Events journalling cards. I used cardstock in those same colours (Coastal Cabana, Crushed Curry, Strawberry Slush and Tangerine Tango) as mats, behind the larger photographs. It was so quick to make - in fact, I think it took much longer for me to print the photographs from my laptop, than it did to complete the entire layout! It is so much fun and very satisfying producing layouts like these so effortlessly. In fact, choosing which photos to use, was my hardest task for the presentation - the rest was a doddle!!
Please come back over the next few days, as I will be showing you many more photographs of my #PLxSU presentation projects - including more page layouts, several greetings cards, a mini envelope album, a wedding album and a cute peg organiser idea too! I will also be giving you some top tips that I have learnt whilst making these projects, so that you can get the most out of your Stampin' Up! Project Life goodies; but, for now, I think there's more than enough information here for you to digest already!
Don't forget to pop over to my online shop to grab yourself some of those fantastic retiring products before they all go... I don't want you to miss out on any crafting products that you have your heart set on... Go! Go now!! ;O)
Until next time, happy crafting everyone!
