Yahoo here it is the autumn-winter catalogue Stampin' Stars team blog hop 

If you've joined us from the lovely Lynn's blog gorgeousness wasn't it fab?? If you haven't then you should go have a peep! here's the link to her blog 

This years seasonal catalogue is full of yummyness that's not just for Christmas  but Halloween,  autumn and even Valentines day!!! 

It also has a lovely new tool for us to use that will be useful all year long!
Here are a few samples using them can you guess what they are?

 Well? Did you get it yet?

No.... well here you go these boxes were all made using the new Stampin' Up! Gift Box Punch Board!!!! found on page 5 of the seasonal catalogue and priced at £17.95. The board makes boxes upto 15.2cm, that's 4'' in old money! cubed.

It's a fab new tool that can help you make a box in about 2 minutes flat!!! And you don't need any glue!

How cool it that????

You can make boxes on the board  with any of our card stock or even our designer series paper but what works best is also another new star of the seasonal catalogue the Under the Tree specialty series paper. What's so special about the paper??? it's weight!! the paper is actually card and it is wonderful for making these boxes with. The card is double sided one side is Kraft and white and the other either garden green, early espresso or cherry cobbler and white.

Here's a link to Stampin' Up!'s own video all about Gift Box Punch Board Gift Box Punch Board Video

WOW New Catalogue Blog Hop

wow new catalogue starts today!!!

As is the tradition with the Stampin' Stars we are holding a catalogue launch blog hop today.
Even though  we are the worlds worst bloggers we thought it would be fun to join in !!
So hopefully you are joining us from the lovely Sara's blog 
We are so lucky to be a part of such a creative team it's a real pleasure to see all the fantastic inspiration everyone has shown without further ado here is our offering.....made today by Cary.

This little poppet is made using the new Hamburger die. The card stock used are the delicious Hello Honey and Blackberry Bliss. The inks used are also hello honey and blackberry bliss as is the oh so soft new stitched satin ribbon.
 The stamp used for the topper is the delightful Blended Bloom that works oh so well with the fab Blendabilities....Stampin' Up's very own range of alcholol marker pens!!!! the image was coloured using the pens then cut out and covered in crystal effects to give it a beautiful glaze. All nice and shiny!!!

To be able to reuse the box I used a small hook and loop fastener on the ribbon so that it will all slide off and on.

The box it's self was stamped with the little flover found in the multi talented Something to Say stamp set. The sentiment is also found in this set too.

 Well I hope you've enjoyed this little look at some of the great new products to be found in the 2014/15 Stampin' Up! catalogue.
Your next destination on this blog hop is over to the oh so talented Queen Pip here

If you get lost please try any of these other artists

Welcome to the Stampin' Stars team sale-a-bration and Stampin Up! spring/summer catalogue launch blog hop. 

A big warm welcome to everyone who has arrived here from the the  lovely Lesleys blog

Well here's my offering for this event a valentine for a loved one or a just because card that has the added attraction of being a fun fold card idea. I got the directions for this great fold from the very talented Monica Gale over at her blog here is the link

I've used the oh so sophisticated modern medley designer series paper from the main catalogue and the gold embossing powder and versamark also found in the main catalogue. 
The heart stamps are from the new Language of Love st available in the spring/summer catalogue for the great price of just £11.95 for clear mount or £14.95 for wood mount. the set has 5 stamps that are not just good for valentine but weddings, anniversaries, cute cards..the list can just go on and on!! I used the heart framlits dies to cut the hearts out and the cute little heart punch that Stampin' Up! also have in the main catalogue.
The sentiment is from a set called See Ya Later and is even better value!!.......FREE!!! How I hear your ask can that be??? Well it's just one of the great FREE items available for every £45  of goodies you purchase from Stampin' Up! There are a wide range of items that are exclusively available  for you to choose from that are only available during Sale-A-Bration from today till the 31st of March 2014.
