Stampin' Up! UK retired lists are live...

It's time to get those items that are leaving the current annual catalogue.  Also there is no guarantee all items in the spring/summer seasonal catalogue will carry over into the new annual catalogue - at least half will not.

All products in the lists are available only WHLIST STOCKS LAST or until 1st July 2013.  Retiring items sell out fast so if there is anything you want please let me know as soon as possible and I'll place your order right away. 

View the list on Stampin' Up!s website here, or via the links below...

Double stacked gift bag

Here's a great gift bag idea which we saw at our recent Stampin' Up! regional training day in Telford.  What an amazing day it was!

The original was made with the Stampin' Up! Fancy Favor box die.  However, I don't have that die so I figured out my own measurements, making a slightly larger bag. We will be making this project in class next month. I'll post the measurements for my bag together with instructions then, so watch this space.

Serene Shilouettes in Black Magic

Here's a great technique I taught in class last week.  It's called black magic and it's much more impressive in real life.  The image is stamped in white craft ink on black card.  Allow the ink to completely dry before colouring in then add white dots using the Singo Gel Pen (on page 157 of the catalogue).

The beautiful two-tone pink ribbon partners perfectly with the designer builder brad.  Both are in the spring/summer catalogue on pages 12 and 13. The tiny butterfly is a stamp from Itty Bitty Stamp set. Cute!

That's the beauty of Stampin' Up!, everything coordinates and goes together just so.  Thank you for visiting and happy crafting...
