Happy New Year!

What? happy New Year?

Well it is in the Stampin’ Up! Community! July 1st saw the release of the new annual catalogue, as well as some gorgeous new in colours!
You can check out the catalogue in the right hand side bar. It’s jam packed with new goodies – my wish list is already HUGE!
But I have had some fun with it already! I had my launch night on June 30th that was loads of fun! We had a lolly bar where everyone could make some cute little lolly cups and take them home in the premade trays.
Blendabilities were available for a play, and all could check out some of the new Project Life kits and accessories that are available now! I’m turning into a BIG PL fan. The pages come together so very quickly!
We played with our new in colours and created a coule of simple projects which I will post later.
The new in colours are Tangelo Twist, Lost Lagoon, Hello Honey, Mossy Meadow and Blackberry Bliss. All very lovely, but so far my favorites are Lost Lagoon and Blackberry bliss!
Everyone who attended received a new catalogue, some new goodies to play with, an in colour chart and a wish list book that I made for each guest.
I hope you have fun perusing the new catalogue and your creativity gets a good boost!
You also need to check back on the 19th of July for our Eureka Team Blog Hop. It will be loads of fun where you will be able to see lots of creations with current products to help give you an extra creative boost.

Retiring Lists, New Catalogue, Sneak peaks!

Wow, it’s been busy!

The Retiring Lists are out for stamps and accessories. Some of these items are already sold out. Contact me if you would like me to email you a copy of those lists!
The best part about retiring products means a new catalogue is on it’s way! That means some gorgeous products will be gone forever, including products from the current Occasions Catalogue, at the end of June! But it also means that fabulous new products are on there way! 
Having had a sneaky peak at the catalogue – one of the benefits of attending convention – I can assure you, there are plenty of brilliant new products and stamps coming your way, and an extra 40 pages of catalogue! What’s not to LOVE!
And that leads to an AWESOME Catalogue Launch Party! Happening on Monday 30th of June. Contact me for further information if you would like to come along. Cost is $10 to receive your new catalogue, do some make and takes, have a peek and play with new products, play a few fun games and of course have supper and enjoy some great company!
With that, I leave you with a sneak peak of a card made with some new sets and coloured with our amazing Blendabilities!
Enjoy ๐Ÿ™‚
