New colours, new ink's all happening !

Whew.  It is seriously crazy right now.  My Stampin' Up!  world has, in no particular order: - Retirement List - New Catalogue excitement  - last month for the Occasions Mini - a colour refresh -new inkpad styles - a new catalogue Launch on 17th June 2018 -a broken ankle.  Wait, what?
A couple of weeks ago I was hosting a lovely young friend of my daughter to stay with us to compete in a national fencing competition which was being held in my city.  Not only was I hosting, I had also volunteered to help the canteen over the three day event.  The very first evening our guest was staying I managed to slip on our polished wood floor while I was chasing our naughty dog who had a shoe in his mouth (his favourite game).  I was sure I'd just sprained my ankle, and was given first aid from my daughter (who is a nursing and paramedics student), and went to bed.  The next morning, after looking at the impressive swelling, I thought "hmmm.  Maybe I should get an X-ray?"  And of course,…

Colour Refresh is coming!

So, you know how the Retirement List came out yesterday?  Well, if you look carefully, you'll notice more than the 2016-18 in colours are retiring.

That means a colour refresh!

It also means if you love a colour that's leaving (sniff, farewell Marina Mist and Wild Wasabi!) you need to make sure your ink pad has a refill and you have enough cardstock to keep your love alive.

Here's an infographic showing exactly what is leaving.

Back to reality!

I've been MIA for a couple of weeks, as I accompanied my 13 year old Thing 3 to a fencing camp in Melbourne.  It was a great camp - the kids worked hard and had fun;  and I had plenty of time to play tourist while the fencers were training!

Meanwhile the latest Stampin' Up! Occasions Mini Catalogue and Sale a Bration has started.  I had a quick chance to play with some new products before I left, but ran out of time to post photos on my blog.

I did post a teaser photo on my social media of the following cards:

I have to say I LOVE the silver embossing paste.  It looks really pretty once dried.  I noticed it has a runnier texture than the usual white paste, which takes getting used to, but it is just as easy to use.

Here's a Stampin' Up! video on how to use embossing paste if you haven't given it a go.

As for the other new products, the Beautiful Day stamp set is one of those versatile, easy to use sets you'll reach for over and over.  It looks great embossed…
