Hello everyone! I'm starting the week with a couple of news items for you.

Firstly, for papercrafters everywhere, to celebrate World Card Making Day on 6th October Stampin' Up! has a number of products that are available on offer from 1st-7th October with 10% off:

With discounts on cardstock and adhesives, it's a great opportunity to stock up on your cardmaking essentials. There are also some great offers on kits and stamp sets too - why not treat yourself and save a few pennies into the bargain? These offers last for just one week until Sunday 7th October, so get your order in today!

 

The second piece of news to start off October is that the first wave of Stamparatus accessories is here! The case/bag won't be available until later in the year, but for now you can purchase additional plates, magnets and foam pads, along with new custom-sized grid paper. Here's the complete list:

 

If you would like to know more about any of the above or would like to place an order, then please do get in touch.  I'll be back tomorrow with a creative post; until then, happy shopping!

Stampin' Up! Offers Galore: World Card Making Day and Designer Series Paper Offer

by Joanne James4. October 2017 14:00

Hello everyone! I've had a busy start to my week: barely recovered from my weekend of exhibiting at the Crafting Live Show in Stoneleigh Park at the weekend, then two days of classes and today a wisdom tooth removal. The latter has at least resulted in an enforced day of quiet today for a change as I am to take it easy - dentists orders!  

So I thought I would take the time to catch up and share with you some news of some fantastic promotions that Stampin' Up! has for this week and month. Firstly, for papercrafters everywhere, to celebrate World Card Making Day on 7th October we have a number of products that are available on offer from 1st-10th October:

 

 

 

Lots of great card making staples in there, including great deals on Fast Fuse and notelets and envelopes and some fabulous stamp sets. 

As if that wasn't enough, there is also an amazing 'buy three, get one free' offer on designer papers for the entire month of October:

 

This sale includes Designer Series Paper from both the annual catalogue and the recently released autumn/winter catalogue (not including Specialty Designer Series Paper or Designer Series Paper Stacks). Here is a close up of some of the paper collections that are included in this offer: 

 

You can already find lots of samples using these papers on my blog and I will continue to share lots more inspiration in the coming months. 

Before I go I have one last piece of exciting news to share with you: Stampin' Up! is getting ready to launch its new range of alcohol-based marker pens:

StampinBlends_Demothumb_SPUKCA

Stampin’ Blends as they will be known, are high-quality, dual-tip markers that come in twelve exclusive Stampin’ Up! colours. They each have a light and a dark shade, which will give you the utmost blending experience! The range also includes an ivory, bronze and colour lifter marker. These are currently only available to demonstrators until 15th October and the exact customer launch date is still to be confirmed. I have a great reason to be sharing them with you now though: if you, like me, love to colour and have been hotly anticipating the arrival of these markers, you might want to consider joining Stampin' up! as a demonstrator before the 15th October, as you are able to get the whole set as part of your starter kit, and still have room for a few other goodies too! If this is something you would like to chat with me about, then do get in touch for more information.

That's all from me; I'll be back tomorrow with a project to share with you. 

Until then, happy stampin'!

Did You Miss Me?

by Joanne James4. October 2016 21:31

A four day blogging break - that has to be the longest in a while! Did you miss me? Last week went by in something of a whirlwind as I was exhibiting at the Great British Craft Show in Stoneleigh Park with my good friend and fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrator Louise Sims, so my time was taken up with last minute preparations for the show and then attending the show itself. Here's a picture of us in front of our stand on Saturday morning raring to go:

We had a great couple of days and it was lovely to meet so many wonderful crafters who we were able to introduce to Stampin' Up! and I am very much looking forward to seeing them again in the future at an event, class or online. 

Whilst I have lots of wonderful projects to share with you here in the coming days and months, today I'm sharing two special offers that you definitely need to know about. The first is one that ends tomorrow, so get in quick!

To celebrate World Card Making Day last Saturday, there are a limited number of products on offer until 5th October:

Lots of great card making staples in there, including great deals on Fast Fuse and in-colour cardstock and envelope paper. Best of all though has to be the offer price on the Envelope Punch Board and the Designer Tin of Cards Kit - you know what a fan I am of Stampin' Up! kits, well this one really doesn't disappoint. A great product for a fun crafty night in with friends or it would make a lovely early Christmas gift. Do get in touch if you'd like to purchase; I will be putting in an order tomorrow night and if you are local to me you are welcome to add to my order and save on postage.

As if that wasn't enough, there is also an amazing offer on designer papers for the entire month of October:

This sale includes Designer Series Paper from both the annual catalogue and the recently released autumn/winter catalogue (not including Specialty Designer Series Paper or Designer Series Paper Stacks). Here are the full details of the paper collections that are included: 

I will be sharing lots of samples using these papers - in fact, pop back tomorrow and you will see the first of many!

Until then, happy stampin'!

Happy World Card Making Day!

by Joanne James4. October 2014 22:09

I've had such a busy day today however I did manage to squeeze in a couple of hours this afternoon for some cardmaking. I'm only just back from a swimming gala this evening and I almost didn't get time to blog, but as it's World Card Making Day this really is one day that I couldn't pass up on the opportunity to share with you the cards that I made.

The first card I made was a case of a fun card by Miranda Mols-Heidenrath that appeared on the Stampin' Up! UK Facebook page earlier this week, which I thought was such a fun card to celebrate WCMD: 

I love the use of the negative space of the die cut and the partial stamp to make this card, so I decided to use the same layout to make another card in an alternative colourway for someone special whose birthday it is today - take a look:

Yes, today it's my dear hubby's birthday, although you'd almost never know it given that he's hardly had a look in, although we did manage to squeeze in a special birthday lunch and a birthday cake. This was the card from the James juniors, which of course more than met with their seal of approval due to the presence of the gold glimmer star (isn't everything better with glimmer?!)

I also made my card for tomorrow's new challenge over at The Paper Players, but you're going to have to wait until the morning to see that one!

I hope you all had fun days too and managed to squeeze in a little crafting; don't forget if you need to stock up on inks, cardstock or adhesives there are some great offers on this weekend, including 20% off selected stamp sets. Get the full details in my earlier post here and hop on over to my online store to purchase (don't forget to use this month's hostess code which can be found on the right hand side of this page).

Back tomorrow with my Paper Players Design Team card - until then, happy stampin'!
