Since I last put a posting on my blog, lots has happened. On 26th November I had a stall at the Walberton Craft Fayre where I met lots of lovely ladies, who I hope will go on to host one of our mini card classes. It was a very festive evening and made me feel that Christmas was well and truly on its way.
Also Helen and I have done another class at The Windmill and a couple of mini classes at my house and at Mum's.
Well Christmas is steaming towards us and the kids have broken up from school. Most of my Christmas cards have been written and sent. Pressies almost wrapped and decorations about to go up. Just the turkey to buy and I think I am almost there!
Once I have done all that and I have a bit of time to myself, I will start putting together some more selections for our mini card classes ready for next year. Helen will be busy making up the packs for the next two classes which are featured on the classes page. Please let me know if you want to come and join in the fun and I will make sure that Helen has a pack with your name on it!
I am also now taking bookings for parties and mini card classes for 2011, so give me a buzz if you want to organise one for you and your friends and relatives.
Well the house is stirring so I had better go and get the show on the road.
Best wishes for Christmas and the New Year to you all.

Also following the Launch Party it is now time to start thinking about Christmas and we are getting things ready for all the Christmas classes we have lined up. Keep and eye on the classes page and I will do my best to keep it up to date.
Also at the class I had enough people who wanted to join my new Stampers Group to make it a Stampers 10! This means each member only has to spend £15 a month to join and have the hostess benefits. There are still two places left if anyone is interested and it will start at the end of the month.
Everybody that came to the Launch Party thought the catalogue was fabulous and I have to agree. With a large number of items being retired, it has been replaced with some great new products and the new colours give it all a fresh feel. If you would like a catalogue let me know and I can send you one for £5 including P&P, or you can take a look online at http://www.stampinup.com/, and email with your order. Don't forget I accept pay pal, as well as cash and cheques and Stampin' Up have just started to accept credit cards.

Do you have a long Wish List from the new catalogue
but can't afford it all at once?
Want to earn FREE products but don't want to host a party?
Then my Stampers Club is the Club for you!
What do you have to do?
You would commit to a six to ten month membership, depending on how many people want to join the group. You would agree to spend £15 - £25 per month from the catalogue. More is allowed, and if you know that you will want to spend at least £30 per month, then you can take two slots and get twice the benefits.
What are the benefits?
1. You will receive a free catalogue from me when the club starts.
2. For one month during your ten month membership (two if you take two slots) you will receive a free level one hostess set (Level 2 or 3 if you generate more orders from friends and families or hosting a workshop that month too!)
3. For one month during your membership (two if you take two slots) you will receive your choice of £15 worth of free items from the catalogue (again, more if you can generate more orders during your month!)
When does it start?
As soon as I have enough members, the club can start - so if you know anyone who would be interested please let them know .

Don't forget to have a look at the Last Chance List before it goes on 30th September. As stocks are limited, don't leave it till the last minute!
The new catalogue is released on 1st October when I will be able to order the new products. I have had a sneak preview and there are lots of lovely new items being added to the Stampin' Up! range. All of the designer papers are being replaced so if there are any in the current catalogue you like you need to order them asap, along with any of the coordinating card stock that is retiring.
There will be some increases in the prices in the new catalogue because of the world wide increase in paper prices and to take into account the forthcoming rise in VAT, so buy now to save a few pennies for the future.

Dont forget that the next card class is on Wednesday 14th April. Its at the Windmill Entertainment Centre as usual between 2-4 pm. We are doing the Petal cards as above. Dont forget to email and let me know if you are coming at email@example.com. Thanks and see you there. Sue
There is major excitement in the Stampin' Up! world with the announcement today of a shake up of the Standard Stampin' UP! colour families and individual colours.
This is great news for the UK as it means that we get 15 new colours AND we get the In-Colours that the US currently get - that will be 20 new colours to play with.
Now this isn't going to happen from today, but with the arrival of our main catalogue in October. So, I am just letting you know this now for a couple of reasons.
If you are building up your colour collections, you may want to take a look at the list above and only buy colours that are staying.
If there is a colour that you love which will be retiring at the end of September, you've got six months notice to fill up on your inkpads, refills, cardstock colours before you won't be able to get it again.
Here is a better look at the colours that we will be saying farewell to in September:
This is all that we know at the moment but I will be able to share more information with you over the coming months once we know more.
However, in the meantime, we've got six months left of the current catalogue and a BRAND NEW Mini Catalogue to get excited about.

I have used papers from the Tea & Crumpets designer range, which is also the next featured paper. The stamps used are from the Circle of Friendship, Cheers to You and Garden Whimsy sets.
If you would like to book a mini card class of your own or order a Home Pack to make up yourself please email me.
If you order a Home Pack there will be £1 p&p charge, but you will have all the bits need to make all these cards. Dont forget if you order any of the stamp sets used in this project, there will be a 10% discount on them.

The new mini catalogue has arrived with many more new stamps, papers and accessories for you to yearn for. I particularly like the Christmas ones at the back, so you can guess what theme my cards will take this year. If you want to take a closer look, click on the catalogue where you will find the mini too.

I would love to own the full marker set and wonderful storage case from Stampin' Up, but do not have enough money to buy the whole lot in on go. So I wondered if anybody else wanted to join me in a new collectors club? I need 3 more people who will need to spend £28.95, which includes p&p, for the next 4 months. Each month you will receive one of the colour family sets and on one of the months you will also receive the storage case, which keeps both tips of the markers evenly inked. At the end of it all we will all have collected the whole set of markers and the case too.
You might be wondering what you can do with the makers?
Colour stamps for beatiful stamping
scribble on to acetate and use with an aqua brush to give a watercoloured effect
Die ribbons to be the same colour as the papers
Die flowers from the Pretties Kit to match your project
and of course write with them
All this and you know that they will match with the cardstock, papers, brad , ribbons and inks
Send me an email if you are interested. firstname.lastname@example.org

I still have some Bella Bleu packs left from last month but have currently sold out of the grosgrain ribbon. I can order and make up some more of the ribbon bundles if anyone would like me too.

The club will run for as many months as there are members. During the period the club runs, each member will commit to order a set amount of products each month on a set date. This means that each month the group will be spending at least £150, which is the minimum amount required to earn hostess benefits.
This is the good bit! Each member will take it in turn to be the "Virtual Hostess" and will receive the hostess gift and £15.00 worth of free products!
Until I know how many people are interested I will not know how much will need to be spent, but it will range from £15 if ten people take part to £25 if six join.
Contact me if you would like to join and I will sent you a free catalogue.
