# Tomorrow, tomorrow - it's only a day awaaaay!#

Yes that's right!

Tomorrow is the day when you can order goodies from the brand new Stampin' Up! mini catalogue.

It's bigger than last year's was - there's an extra 10 pages this time - and that's not the only BIG thing about it (nudge, nudge, wink, wink!). There is something really BIG coming your way in it but you will have to wait just a few more hours before we can go live with it - so watch this space!

Just in case you are so befuddled with all the goodies coming your way I have been beavering away with my preorder goodies - and am taking part in no less than TWO blog hops this weekend.

Check in tomorrow to see what ten of the Tartan Stampers Team (my SU mum, sisters and me), have created using the new products - we go live at 10am tomorrow morning.

And then on Saturday come back for even more! There are no less than FIFTY SU demos from all over the country (and I think there are a couple of the French Demos playing too) taking part in a blog hop organised by In Love with Stamping. Don't worry - we have split it into bite size chunks for you there are 5 groups of 10 to go round, and given what we have seen before - i'm sure there will be some stunning work to inspire you all!

See you at 10am tomorrow morning!

Thanks to the 6 lovely ladies who are joining me for my first one day retreat on Saturday April 16th - I'm really looking forward to the day and am really pleased with the projects we will be doing - watch your inboxes for photos and admin details which will be coming your way soon!

Sorry still can't show any pics of new stuff anywhere online!

Check out the list of discounted products and get your orders in quick the clock is ticking - and I must go and change the rest of the clocks in the house.

Two places left for the One Day Retreat on 16th April!

Are you going to be fed up with the kids after a week of Easter holidays - and have the prospect of another week ahead??

Why not leave the family to their own devices and come and join me for a day's papercrafting with fabulous new goodies from the new Stampin' Up! Mini Catalogue which goes live on the 1st April. I have two places left on this first run!

I have now designed and costed out the day and the price will be £45.00.  This is payable as soon as possible to enable me to order supplies for the classes.

Included in that fee you will get supplies to make the following projects

* A multi page mini album

* Two 12x12 scrapbook pages

* a set of 4-6 cards in a handmade box

I am sorry - but I am not allowed to show any sneak peeks of items from the new mini online until the 1st April - but we will be using the beautiful Springtime Vintage items on all the projects (and I believe these can be seen in the current US Occasions Mini Catalogue (hint!!)).

You will also get a salad lunch (with a glass of wine if you want one), and as much tea/ coffee/ squash etc as you can drink with biscuits and/ or cake, included in the fee

There will be a raffle (you get 1 ticket in your packs and can buy more if you wish), and hopefully - a couple of small make and take projects to allow you to try out even more new product!.

Once I have the samples complete - I will send you pictures so you can bring photos if you want - but don't feel pressured to do so - you can always substitute a photo sized piece of copy paper where the photo will go thus allowing you to take the "perfect shot(s)" for the album and scrapbook pages in slower time.

I am also happy to offer you 10% discount on any orders you make from the SU catalogues on the day

Payment can be made in one of the following ways

* through PayPal

* through a bank transfer on internet banking - email me for my details

* by cash if you should happen to see me personally in the next week or so
* by cheque - but please - only as a last resort - it takes time for me to go to the bank to pay it in and then to clear

Your kit packs will include cardstock, patterned paper, a whole reel of ribbon, a whole pot of buttons and a stamp set (which one depends on how fast I get the order for the one I want in on the night of the 31st March) - and you should have loads of buttons, ribbon and paper and of course the stamp set to take home with you!!

I look forward to hearing from you soon!

Can't make the date but would like to make the projects?

Why not buy the kit pack? It too costs £45 (but instead of lunch you get the P&P for free!). Each project comes with full step by step instructions and a large colour phot of the finished piece.

These will be sent out on the 18th April (after the event) and will be with you by the Easter weekend!

New Stampers 6 Group starting in May!

Do you love card, pretty papers, stamps, ink, punches and all sorts of other lush crafty things?

Do you ever wish you could have a Stampin' Up! workshop but can't think of enough crafty friends to invite?

Well  why not come and join my "virtual party" where you can have all the hostess benefits with none of the hassle of actually throwing a party in your house?

A Stampers 6 is a group of customers who each agree to spend AT LEAST £25 each month (excluding P&P) for 6 months on products from the SU catalogues. With this guaranteed minimum spend of £150 from the group, it means that the order qualifies for Hostess Benefits in the form of a free limited edition hostess only stamp set/ designer paper pad, and a minimum of £15 to spend  on goodies (and believe me - it can be MUCH more than that!!). Each member gets to be the hostess for one month out of the 6 the club runs.

In your goody parcels each month will also be a little thank you gift from me and a hand made thank you card (with my message on a post it note so you can use the card yourself!

Join now - and not only will you get a free 2010-11 Idea Book and Catalogue - you will also get a copy of the new mini catalogue which goes live on the 1st April with even more goodies to tempt you - and there are some BIG surprises to be had in this one! If you are feeling flush - you can have more than one place - and therefore get the hostess benefits more than once!

If you are interested in joining in the fun - please drop me a line on or call me on 07973 969153
