Going, Going - not Gone (quite yet)!

Well - its almost the 1st of July - and that means that the new Stampin' Up! catalogue goes live in the US and Canada.

Here in the UK - me and my fellow demos have been poring over the retiring list from the US catalogue and wondering if these are also going from ours. It doesn't always follow that they do - there are a couple of sets that we have that are retired in the US - and vice versa, and of course - the US catalogue is nearly THREE times the size of the European ones - but here is the list of the sets which are retiring in the US which we have in our catalogue.....

Now as I said - there is no guarantee that these will actually go in October - and we won't know for sure until September 1st - but if there are any of these on your wish list - I would think about ordering them before the last chance list comes out in September.

There is always a mad rush for retiring stamps - as with the SU stamps - once they are gone - that's it - they are gone forever, the only way to get hold of them is via eBay or through a demo sourcing a set from another demo - and believe me we are still getting requests for sets which retired last October - even now!

Why not be ahead of the game and see if any of those are on your wish lists - and if they are - get an order in now.

As an incentive - anyone who places an order over £50 with me will get free shipping and handling (worth £4.95) from today until the 15th July.

Christmas in July - Crafting Day

I have done the costings and here are the details of the Stampin' Up! crafting day(s) I am running at my house in July!

Due to numbers requesting places and also an alternative date - I am running this day twice - first on Saturday 9th July, and again on Saturday 23rd. Kick off will be at 10:00 and we will finish when we finish!

The price will be £50 for the day.

This will include all materials you need for the day, as much tea, coffee and squash/ water as you like and a salad lunch (with local cooked ham, quiche and pork pie), bread roll and fresh fruit. Sorry - but mince pies and mulled wine will not be on offer!!! LOL!

Your kits will include a whole reel of ribbon, gold elastic, brads and die cut snowflakes and swirls - and you will also get the Contempo Christmas Stamp set in clear mount to take home with you (if you have already got this stamp set - you may substitute it for another one of equal or lesser value (£12.95) eg tree trimmings - just let me know when booking - and don't forget to bring it with you on the day!)

Unfortunately - this time you will not get a printed set of instructions as the cost is prohibitive - but I will email you a PDF of the full step by step instructions beforehand so you may print off your own if desired.

To reserve your place, please let me know as soon as possible, stating which day you wish to come. Payment is required in full on booking (either by bank transfer or by paypal gift to as I need to order (and pay for!) the supplies up front.

If for any reason you are unable to come, you will receive all the class materials through the post with any stamping using other stamp sets already done for you.

Please feel free to pass these details on to your friends if you think they would like to come along too

I hope to see you here!
