Only 7 days of Sale-A-Bration and the Summer Mini Left

Can you believe that it's almost over. We have exactly a week until the Sale-A-Bration and the Summer Mini Catalogues end.... sniff.

But it's not too late to earn some of those free goodies. For every $100 you spend, you can choose a free item from the Sale-a-Bration catty. And if you have been thinking about signing up as a demonstrator or just want to take advantage of the 20% discount and be a hobbyiest stamper, now is the best time. Right up until 31st March, the Stampin Up starter kit is reduced from $289 to $249, plus you can choose any stamp set for free!!! What a great deal!!!

And the 31st March is also the time when we say good bye to the Summer Mini Catalogue too. Here is the Carry over list which shows what items will be carried over to the new Annual Catty in September. Everything else will be discontinued after 31st March. So if you've been thinking about getting any of those beautiful stamp sets or the fabulous Spice Paper pack, now is you one and only time!!!

But it's not all gloom and doom. The 1st of April brings the new Autumn-Winter Mini.... Woo Hoo!! And there are lots of great items that I'm sure you'll all "Need"!!!
 I can't give too much away but I'm sure there are one or two items that I think will be a big SCORE for everybody... if you know what I mean... wink, wink!!!

Have Fun,

Scrapping in the dark?.... no problem!!!

Well last night I had my first Stampin' Up party in the evening. I was very excited and all organised in time (which makes a change lol). It was raining, but it didn't put me off. Got to my lovely hostess's house, met all her great friends, was all set to go when... the power went out!!!

So what could we do but get out the candles and scrap in the dark lol. This is the card we made.

Well actually, not quite. The one we did was in Wisteria Wonder instead of Riding Hood Red, as I knew the hostess liked that colour. But everything else was the same. I even taught the girls how to do the Two Step Stamping technique, which is how we got the little, lighter coloured flowers.

And when the lights finally came back on AFTER we had all finished the card (the timing couldn't have been any better) everyone's still loved amazing.... if maybe a little wonky lol.
