Mini Catalogue Blog Hop

Welcome to the 2010 MINI CATALOGUE Stampin' Up! blog tour! You may have just come from DEBBI'S blog, but if you are starting here, don’t worry … you can make the complete circuit just by following the links at the end of each post. There are 15 stops along the way and we hope you will visit each one to see the gorgeous creations we have to show you! We will be showcasing the gorgeous NEW stamp sets and accessories available from the MINI CATALOGUE available to purchase for a limited time from 1st April to 30 September. At the end of each post there will be a link to take you to the next stop on the tour. So sit back, relax and enjoy!

I am showcasing the Solid Stripe background stamp. There are 4 new background stamps in the MINI CATALOGUE that are smaller and easier to handle than the previous ones and available at a fantastic price of just £8-95 each!!

My 1st card uses the Solid Stripe Stamp with Versamark and Dazzling Diamonds for a feminine look.

My 2nd card uses just a small section of the Solid Stripe Stamp coloured with Stampin' Write Markers for a 'manly' look. You also get a sneaky peek of the FAB 2 step Bird Punch on this card too!

These are just two simple effects using the Solid Stripe Stamp, both so very different. Just imagine the versatility of this stamp inked in a variety of different colours, the possibilities are endless!
If you would like to get your hands on a mini catalogue or want to place an order just e-mail me ( and Ill organise this for you.
Well, that’s all from me, now you’re off to enjoy the wonderful creations of CAZ.
Thanks for stopping by!

The challenge over on MTTC this week is make it manly. I struggle with *men* cards but, I think I have found my saving grace.

If you would like to look at these and the other gorgeous stuff in the mini send me an e-mail ( and I'll get one to you.

March/April Card Class

These are the cards we will be making at my next card class. You might be thinking that you haven't seen the stamp set before, well that's because its from the gorgeous new mini catalogue that starts on the 1st April. One of the perks of being a demo is I get to play first!! I absolutely adore this stamp set and co-ordinating wheel and I know you will too. If you look closely you may also be able to see a touch of shimmer on some of the cards, this is a new product too!! I am going to keep you guessing on what that is until the class. Our technique this month is 'faux buttons', I'll show you how to create 'buttons' that match all of your card stock/paper. Places are limited at these classes so booking is essential. For further details of when, where and how much please e-mail me at I look forward to seeing you all soon

Paper Roses

I've seen loads of the paper roses about in blogland over the last few weeks and finally got round to having a go myself. I think I need a little more practice but, for my 1st attempt I don't think I did too bad, what do you think?

Simple Set

Whilst waiting up last night to pre-order from Stampin' Up!s gorgeous mini catalogue I decided to keep myself awake by joining in a colour challenge over on ILWS. The challenge was to use only natural colours, as seen in the Choc Chip card at the back of the pic, I rather liked the simplicity of it once finished so carried on to make this little set. I think it's simple but effective what do you think? I must tease you a little about the up coming mini, you are so gonna love the scrummy stuff available to order from 1st April, the perks of being a demo is I get chance to play first!!! Don't worry I'll be giving you loads of sneak peeks to wet your appetite ;o)
