FREE Make & Take tomorrow

It's not often you get something for nothing these days but you can tomorrow!

If you like the idea of making a card like the ones above then just pop in to Dip n Doodle in Largs tomorrow anytime between 11am and 6pm. Even if you just have 15 minutes to spare why not drop in and see what's on offer.

If you've never crafted before but fancy giving it a go then this is the ideal opportunity. There will be plenty of help on hand and absolutely no obligation to buy.

I will of course be trying to tempt you with some previews from the new catalogue that goes live on 1 October.

You will also have the opportunity to reserve for purchase some of my retired sets that I will be reluctantly relinquishing. Although the retired sets can't be sold until 1 October I will be giving catalogue credit on a £1 for £1 basis on each retired item reserved for purchase on Saturday.

Yes that's right! If you reserve a retired stamp set for £20 I will give you a credit of £20 to spend in the new catalogue. Order must be placed on Saturday 1 October to qualify.

I hope you can find the time to drop in and I look forward to seeing some new faces as well as my lovely regular customers.

See you soon.

Last Chance Blog Hop

Today I'm taking part in a blog hop showcasing some Stampin' Up! products that are just about to retire at the end of this month.

If you have been following the hop from the beginning of the circle (from Alison's blog),
then a warm welcome to you! You will have just seen some fabulous projects from Ally.
If you have just popped in, don't worry, you can follow the links from here and enjoy the full blog hop circle!

This card was made for my friend's daughter's birthday and uses some of the gorgeous Nursery Suite Specialty Designer Series Papers (117165 £9.95) that retire at the end of this month.

The next three cards were made using one of my favourite Christmas sets Sparkly & Bright (115346 £16.95) and the Jolly Holiday designer series papers (unfortunately the papers are now out of stock - sorry!) If you are planning on buying any products that are retiring then I do recommend you do so as soon as possible as stocks may be running low on more items.

The Merry Christmas sentiment on these two cards is from the Occasional Greetings set (110520)which is also retiring. This has also been discounted by 40% so is available at the bargain price of £18.57 while stocks last.

This last card has been designed to attach to the front of an envelope to enclose money or a Christmas gift card.
This next card was made for a friend who was in hospital (excuse the fuzzy picture taken from my phone). The buttherfly stamp is from the Strength & Hope set (Wood: 118100 £15.95, Clear Mount 123660 £12.95) Stampin' Up! will donate £1 to the Breast Cancer Research foundation for each set purchased before the end of September.

By the time you read this I will be on my way to Edinburgh to meet up with my fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrators for some business training. As always when us demonstrators get together we make lots of cards to swap. I was very organised for once and made these cards a few weeks ago.

However when my pre-order goodies arrived on Tuesday (one of the perks of being a demo is that you get to order some of the new stuff from the new catalogue early!!!) I decided I couldn't resist making up some swaps using one of the new hostess sets (did I mention that as a demo you also get to pre-order two hostess sets as well! )

I finally finished these this morning and I'll be showing you the card in more detail next week.

Look out for more posts soon when I'll be letting you see some of the new products.
Hint: I had to dig out my sewing machine for the first time in ages!

Finally I have just set up a Facebook page and if you'd like to "like" it I'd be very grateful. Just click on the link that is (hopefully) on the sidebar on the left over there <<<<<<<<<<

I hope you have enjoyed my projects! Now it's time to continue the hop by going to visit Evy's blog here. Have a great weekend everyone!!

I've just uploaded some photos from my camera and I found a couple of projects that I hadn't shared with you yet.

This little gift bag was made using a tutorial I purchased from a US demonstrator, Inking Idaho. It was very simple to make using Poppy parade cardstock, ribbon and the square lattice embossing folder.

And this was a card made following a challenge set by Lorraine. The challenge was:
- Use three different colours of blue and a technique from one of the following: shaving cream, marbles or crayon resist.
I stamped a piece of whisper white card with a snowflake stamp and basic black ink. I then used a white crayon to highlight the areas I wanted to stay white before brayering the card with Baja Breeze ink (my first blue).

This was then mounted on Night of Navy and Not Quite Navy card.

Added some pearls and satin ribbon. The stamp sets used were Serene Snowflakes and Curly Cute (both of which are carrying over to the new catalogue).

And finally if you would like to get hold of the new Idea Book & Catalogue now then I have them on hand and ready to post.

As an introductory offer, throughout September, you can purchase the catalogue at the special price of only £4.95 including delivery direct to your door (RRP £5.95 plus P&P). Just click on the paypal button below to purchase.

That's all for now but be sure to check back tomorrow at 10am when I am taking part in the retiring list blog hop. See you soon!
