Just two more sleeps!!

When it comes to the start of a new Stampin’ Up! Idea Book and Catalogue we just turn into little kids do we not? counting down the ‘sleeps’ like little kids do before Christmas or their Birthdays cos its just so exciting for all the new things that will come!

Now with the new Idea Book & Catalogue starting on Thursday this means you only have today and tomorrow to get your orders in for anything on the Retired Items list – you can view the list by clicking on the button in my sidebar over on the right or click here to download the file.

Here are a couple of cards using some retired stamps just to reminisce a little ….

I love these two sets and will be sad especially to see Always retire – be sure to check that list to ensure you dont miss out on anything you need to have.  I will have my used Retired Sets for sale on thursday so be sure to pop back then! I am still offering Free Shipping on orders with retired items till 6pm tomorrow – payment will need to be by credit card so I can get your order in on time.

Now would you like a little sneak peek of whats to come??

Here’s a little card I made last week …

I’ve been finding it hard to back into creating after Mum’s passing but this card has a little bit of sentiment attached to it.  Years ago, when I was much younger I loved to look through Mum’s jewelry box and she had this most gorgeous Cameo necklace and it came to mind as I opened the new Designer Frames Embossing folders. The silhouettes are in a new stamp set called Forever Young which I had won at Convention and this was just a match made in heaven!

I’m thinking it needs a little something but not sure – I dont want to add too much and overdo it – maybe a bow and an antique brad? What do you think?

I’ve also used some new Designer Series Paper and a lovely leafy swirl stamp from Creative Elements (yup another new set!) which was one of the sets we received in our Convention bags.

I cant wait to share the new catalogue with you and if you dont have your copy yet contact me to arrange one today!

  1. Oh Onie! I’ve such a ‘story’ of my cameo necklace. Love, love, love Cameos. Now I need to finally crack open my pre-order stash and re-visit my cameo experience too. Thanks for the inspiration Onie. ( love your card girlfriend)

  2. This kid is also looking fwd to Sept 1 too Leonie. I love the card with the new play toys. When I think of a Cameo necklaces…I recall the ivory/cream decorative edge that some of them had around them, so perhaps a scallop trim border or scallop border eased in to fit the oval to give that impression??? Just a thought. I can’t wait to see these new embossing folders….drooling already!! Please take care of you and know that the mojo will all return in good time. ooxx
