Hello Lovelies

Can you believe we are almost half way through 2017 ... which means it's only 6 months till Christmas this Sunday. Excitement is building in our house at the moment as we await the birth of our fourth grandchild who was due last Sunday. We have no idea what sex the baby is so it will be a wonderful surprise as to the sex and the name. I already have my baby card made but can't do any shopping just yet until the surprise is revealed <3

Some of you have already placed your first orders from the new catalogue and I hope that you have had lots of fun playing all your new products. I made a few purchases as well and here is a card I created using the Bike Ride stamp set and co-ordinating Build a Bike Framelits. I do hope you can all see the image.

This is the Thank You card that was received by everyone who placed an order with me last month. All images used are current product  apart from the greeting which is from the retired Six Sided Sampler stamp set. Bike Ride Bundle (cost $73.75) can be found on page 20 of the catalogue with a better view of the Framelits on page 213. It does contain quite a few images but it was great fun to create with.

I'm off to Japan with a girlfriend on the 11th July for an 8 night cruise around the north island of Hokkaido and I will be placing an order next Friday, June 30th so let me know by 12 noon on that date if you need anything before I leave.

Wishing you all a lovely weekend and I'm sure it will be with the weather being  just gorgeous at the moment :)

Happy Stampin'

Today marks the first day of June, the first day of winter here in Australia and the first day of the brand new Stampin' Up! 2017-2018 catalogue. Like any new catalogue there is so much to see and quite often you miss lots of items the first time around as I have found when I pick it up and flick through the pages.

I have put together a list of my favourite must have products to start with and I thought I might share it with you.

Of course there are quite a lot more on my list but we have a whole year ahead in which to shop products from this year's beautiful catalogue and of course these are only some of my favourites and I'm guessing yours may be way different to mine! 

If you haven't a copy of the new catalogue, please contact me to obtain one or click on the link to the right to view it online.

Anything you would like to order, just send me an email.

Happy Stampin'
