Retiring Products: Magical Mermaid

Last week for our Last Chance List products.  

Magical mermaid card

Isn't this the most gorgeous backdrop for this beautiful mermaid card.  Features the Magical Mermaid stamp set that is retiring from our range.  I love how they've used the seaweed stamp on this box too.

Here's another one that caught my eye - featuring the Fanciful Fragrance stamp set.  Love that vintage look.

Stampin' Up! New Catalogues Are Arriving

New catalogueExciting week to check the mailbox - the new catalogues have started to arrive.  Let me know when yours gets to your mailbox and I'd love to hear what your favourites are from our new range.  New items are marked with a little N symbol.  My catalogue has a good bunch of post it notes marking the first things on my wish list.  We go live on June 3rd so we've got another couple of weeks to fine tune!  

If you've got your copy with you - I love page 9 the Boho Indigo product medley.  Can't wait to grab that and have a play.  Loving the soft colours in the Peony Garden suite on pages 82 and 83 as well.  And might be all this quarantine baking and snacking but I'm quite liking the set on page 91 with all my favourites- cookies, chocolate, coffee and cocktails!  Page 103 - Happiest of Birthdays is on my list too as it has a great belated greeting and I'm invariably late getting my cards in the post.  I love ALL the patterned paper this year just about - pages 148 -150.  Just a note that the Stampin' Cut and Emboss machines won't quite be ready to roll on launch day but they're coming very soon.   The new in colours look very spiffy - I'll have some projects to share soon to show off the latest new colours in our range.  What caught your eye?  Once again there are some beautiful samples to inspire us to go make a nice crafty mess and get creative.  

Everyone who has placed an order in the last 12 months should have one on its way to your place.  If yours has arrived - happy browsing.  If yours is still on its way - hope the postie gets there soon with some happy mail for you.  

Customers - If you haven't ordered in the last 12 months and would like a copy, get in touch and I can pop one in the post for you.  I've got a few spares here.  

Take care and have a great week. 

Cheers, Sue

Do you have some golfers among your friends and family?  Love these golf themed cards made with the Clubhouse stamp set - retiring at the end of this month.

There's some coordinating DSP (patterned paper) as well that helps put a great project together.

Hope you had a great weekend and that your week is off to a great start.  

Our Sunday didn't quite go to plan.  With a lovely bit of sunshine, John and Jack headed out for a ride but Jack had a bit of a stack on his bike.  Bit of skin off in a few places and some bumps and bruises that should be nice and colourful over the week.  Lucky he's a tough cookie.  

Here's to a bump and bruise free week for all of us.  :-) 

Cheers, Sue


Product List: Here's the things featured in the projects above. Retiring and only available until end of month.

Last Chance List: Beautiful Bouquet stamps and Bouquet Bunch dies

Bouquet card

One of my favourites on this year's retiring products list is the Beautiful Bouquet stamps that coordinate with the Bouquet Bunch dies.

Isn't this gift bag made with them just beautiful.

Another retiring product I love is the copper tea tins.  They come up so well decorated and make a nice gift wrapping option.

Even just a simple wrap in some pretty patterned paper does the trick.

I hope your week is going well.  Quite glad to get to Friday this week.  Some school assessments this past few days for our Ms Yr 12 so the stress levels have been on the up. 

Has anyone had a covid 19 test?  I had a touch of the sniffles and a sore throat before last weekend so popped along to the shopping centre drive through testing station near us.  Test wasn't as bad as I thought it might be.  A weird feeling having a swab of the throat and nose but quite quick and didn't hurt.  Results by text 3 days later.  All good.  Happy to see they've blitzed their 100,000 tests target for the last fortnight so some good data for decision making.  

Have a lovely weekend.  Some entertainment options around for you if you like virtual theatre.  The Shows Must Go On has a show I've not heard of called By Jeeves showing on youtube this weekend.   The UK National Theatre has different shows available free for a week at a time too - some good ones on the list by the looks of it.  

Take care,  Sue
