Post New Catalogue Launch Wrap Up

We had close to 55 lovely ladies come and craft the day away on Saturday, at our Annual Catalogue Launch.  The ladies had the opportunity to make 8 cards featuring new stamps, in colours and dies.  We served a delicious lunch and afternoon tea, catered by Food FX, and had a table groaning with our retired products for sale.

Here are some photos of what you missed:

The lovely and talented Stephanie Pike with two of her wonderful customers.
The fabulous Bec O'Gorman

The cards designed by Steph and Bec:

It was such a fun day!

Upcoming Events & Classes

Don't fall over in shock - I've got a class coming up on Thursday 18th May!  I know, it's been a while.

I'm going to feature a new suite of products (NEW as in "going to be in the new annual catalogue!") which you can purchase before the new catalogue even starts - how cool is that?

Isn't it gorgeous?  And can you spy some new in colours in this picture?  

You can order the Eastern Palace Suite of Products in 2 bundles:  

That's right, you can get a free gift from Stampin' Up! when you purchase either bundle.  Awesome!

Some of my Favourite (Retiring) Things

Its sad when your favourite things retire.  But at least you have the memories (and now that song is stuck in my head).

Here are some of my favourite retiring products from the Annual Catalogue:

Botanical Blooms Stamp Set (and their matching framelits, Botanical Builder framelits)
I love the delicate leaves and flowers in this set, and I love how it can be used for a multitude of occasions - male or female, birthday, sympathy, thank you, get well.  So versatile.

Cutie Pie Thinlits, Sweet Stack Stamp Set
I love this set because I made party favours for my youngest's birthday party with it.

Party Pop Up Thinlits
This framelit set makes a quick and easy card - I also made a gift card holder to match this card but my son took it before I could photograph it.  The gift card envelope framelit is also retiring (sob!).

Fiesta Time Framelits and Birthday Fiesta Stamp Set
I love the cheerful Llama!  So good for children's birthdays.

Cheerful Tags Framelits and Here's to Cheers Stamp Set (carried over from the Holiday Mini)
And this set is so very useful - I think I'll be keeping mine as I don't think I can bear to part with it.

I think all of these are still available - but for how much longer?  Be sure to head to my online store so you don't miss out!

Retirement List is Out!

It's always sad to see favourites go - but it is an opportunity to create space for exciting new products, and that's fun!
I haven't had a thorough look at the list myself yet, but I will let you know as things sell out.  As I said in my last post, I expect the retiring in colours will be the first to go, so make sure you have what you need, before it is gone forever.

Also remember that any current bundles (stamps + framelits or punches bundled together at discount pricing) will retire so that if they are available in the new annual catalogue, they won't have the same discount.
Here's a link to a PDF of the Retirement List:    Retirement List PDF

Retiring In Colours

It is getting close to the new Annual Catalogue being released (1st June 2017) and we'll be saying goodbye to the 2015-2017 in colours (sob!).  Of course, that means there will be room for new, lovely in colours!  
You might have these colours already (ink pads, or cardstock) but do you have the reinker?  The markers?  
In past years, the reinkers for retiring in colours have gone fast.  Like, before the Retired List is released in May, fast.  Don't wait!  If you have the ink pad for one of these colours, and love it, you need the reinker too.  
Click the links to go to my online store.  I'll be featuring projects made with these colours over the month of April, so you'll have time to fall in love with them if you haven't already.
