Autumn/ Winter Catalogue

It must be one of the worst kept secrets in the world!

On 1st September, Stampin Up! will launch the brand new Autumn/ Winter catalogue full of lush goodies to help you prepare for a crafty season of holiday celebrations!

Now - I'm not officially allowed to show you a picture of the new UK catalogue, but the second worst kept secret is that the US/ Canada catalogue is already online, and if you whiz over to this link, you will be able to what we have in store for you on September 1st. Please note that the digital products are not available to the European markets yet - so our catalogue will be fractionally smaller than this one, but we will still have 40 A4 pages of goodies to tempt you with.

Want to see some of these new goodies in the flesh? You do?? Well why not come along to the Hobbycraft show at the GLOW arena in Bluewater Shopping Centre in Kent from 6-9 September?

I am joining up with Natalie O'Shea and Kim Fee to share the fabulous goodies and fun of being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, and we will have a different make and take for visitors to the stand each day. Come along and have a play with the products and chat to us and we will sell you one of the Autumn Winter catalogues for £5 - but a week or so later, you will get a shiny new 2012-13 Stampin' Up! catalogue in the post for no additional cost - so that will be another 200 pages to look forward to!

Bluewater is a fabulous shopping centre with lots for the rest of the family to do while you indulge your craft addiction. They can go to the pictures, go shopping, eat at umpteen restaurants, and if old enough - go to the Young Driver school and learn to drive!

Live too far away to make it - well please get in touch and I will pop a hot off the press Autumn/ Winter catalogue into the post for you. This will cost you £2.50. but is fully refundable on an order of £30.00 or more from the new catalogues. Please send a Paypal payment to, and one will be winging its way to you in the next post!

Hopefully see you at Bluewater shortly!

Booking Terms and Conditions 
1.  All classes (and open houses) MUST be booked and paid for at least 1 week in advance, as I need to order (and pay for) the class supplies in advance. As the materials come from Germany, the final order needs to go in at least a week , and preferably longer, ahead of the class date. If I have not received payment before I place the order, I regret that your booking will be cancelled.
2. Should you need to cancel your paid booking before I have ordered the supplies, I am happy to refund all fees paid less a small admin charge (to cover the lost revenue). Once the supplies have been ordered, no refund is possible, but you will receive a kit containing all your supplies by post, and full instructions for all the projects will be sent to you by email.
I apologise for any inconvenience caused, but as the classes are all competitively priced, I cannot afford to have unsold kits .
3. Prices include all materials to make the projects, and use of necessary tools, however you should bring along your own adhesives (glue runner, double sided tape, foam pads, wet glue, glue stick etc). Refreshments are also supplied, and for all day events a light lunch (salad, jacket potato or sandwiches) will be provided. Please notify me of any dietary needs at time of booking.
4. Due to space restrictions, please do not bring large or bulky craft totes, especially the wheeled variety, with you to make the class more comfortable for all those attending. Lists of required tools and any non included supplies will be issued closer to the events.
