Emma's Birthday

This is my first non-crafting entry ever, but I was so pleased with the cupcakes I made for my lovely daughters birthday bbq on Sunday, that I thought I should show you. She has reached the grow-up up age of 13!

Ususally when I make any sort of cake it turns out to be a frisby! So to actually have something that looked like a cake and was edible was truely amazing.

I also almost ran out of time to make her card, but managed to get one just in time. Hope you like the card and cakes. You never know, I might actually make some for one of the classes, if you are very unlucky!

This weeks classes

Helen, my Stampin' Up! colleague and I have had a busy week this week with two classes, plus preparing for an open house at Helen's and a craft fayre next Saturday 24th April at the Windmill Entertainment Centre.
This is a box we made on Monday, with a lovely bunch of ladies from Ashington, into which a packet of Malteasers fits perfectly. Ideal for a inexpensive but impressive present.
On Wednesday at the Windmill we had a very pleasant afternoon with the ladies, making 6 Petal cards, a page marker and a sweetie pouch. The next class is scheduled for Monday 10th May for which I will post further details and a picture of the project next week, along with dates for mini cards classes that we will be doing in Littlehampton.
Helen is having an open house between 11am and 9pm on Tuesday at her home in Ashington to promote Stampin' Up! products and everyone is welcome. If you would like to come please email me for further details.
Also don't forget we will both be at the Spring Craft Fayre on Saturday 24th April, at the Windmill Entertainment Centre in Littlehampton, between 2 & 4pm. Helen will be manning the Make & Take table and will also be bring along some cardmaking and scrapbook bits and bobs that she had left over from her shop. So come along and grab some bargains.

Out with old and in with the new

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.

The Mini Catalogue

It's here the new MINI

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.

Enjoy Sue
