Here it is!

Hot off the presses here is the new 2015-2016 Annual Catalogue!


Now before you get too excited there are some things you need to know.

The sales periods for the 2014-2015 annual catalogue, the 2015 occasions catalogue and the 2015-2016 annual catalogue will overlap on 2 June. Please note the following about the transition day:

  • Pricing from the 2014-2015 annual catalogue and 2015 occasions catalogue will remain in effect on 2 June for all carryover items. Brand-new items in the 2015-2016 annual catalogue will remain at their printed price on 2 June. Beginning 3 June, all new pricing will take effect.
  • Current hostess programme benefits will remain in effect on 2 June. Beginning 3 June, all new hostess benefits (Stampin’ Rewards) will take effect.
  • On 2 June, all Online Store categories will be replaced with new categories in support of the 2015-2016 annual catalogue. The new categories will contain NEW and CARRYOVER items in the 2015-2016 annual catalogue. All other items will be searchable and orderable, but not categorised. The Retiring Products category and any remaining available items will be active through 2 June.

I will be popping up the catalogue link in the sidebar later in the morning but I have scheduled this post to go live at 4 am for those of you who just cant wait ( or, like me, have dairy farming partners who toddle off to work then).

Paper Crafters Day Roundup

I must say I had a great day yesterday with the ladies who attended my Monthly Papercrafters Day here in Leeston. We had lots of laughs and got to meet some new people while sharing something we all enjoy.

One of my newcomers brought her Earthquake Album that she has been working on. She had been collecting paper cuttings and photos along the way from our first big one in Sep 2010 through the devastation of Feb 22 right up to the present and wanted to DO something with them so launched herself into the world of scrapbooking to record her journey through this trying time. It was a real honour to have this special record shared with us.

I showed the ladies lots of ways to use up your scraps including these cards using up strips of paper.

 And another version of the punched out version using ribbon instead of paper strips.

So if you would like to come along next month and join in the fun mark down the last Sunday of the month on your calendar!!

Flowerpots and Fun Days

Just a quick reminder about tomorrows Fun Day. BYO stamps and projects, a plate for lunch and $5 for hall hire. Try out my Big Shot and I will do a couple of demonstrations during the day too.

I have been making a special order up this week. The lovely Nicky wanted some flowerpot cards. Take a look

Dont you love the flowers in Concord Crush and Wisteria Wonder! I used some vellum paper to layer over the Butterflies to add a special touch. To punch this paper I put a sheet of computer paper with it otherwise the vellum jammed and ripped : (

The stamp set I’ve used is Cottage Garden. Here is the tag which slides inside the pot.
