Have you heard about World Card Making Day?

World Card Making Day is a holiday for card makers around the world to celebrate the creativity of handmade cards and the personal connection that they create between friends and family (see the World Card Making Day  page).

Celebrated the first Saturday in October, World Card Making Day endeavours to bring together card makers around the world at a time that is traditionally the busiest time of year for card- and gift-making.

Stampin’ Up! Celebrates World Card Making Day

Stampin’ Up! is excited to celebrate this holiday the week of 4-11 October. During this week, Stampin’ Up! are offering 20 percent off Simply Sent Card Kits.

You will find the  the Simply Sent Card Kits on pages 12-14 of the main catalogue.

If you’re new to Stampin’ Up! (or just a bit pressed for time) then these Simply Sent Card kits will be PERFECT for you!   There are 5 card kits to select from and they arrive in a gorgeous box containing all of the supplies to complete at least 10 cards (or more)

One of my favourite kits is the Simple Delights Set (on page 14) which contains

  • a 6 piece stamp set
  • Chocolate Chip Classic Stampin’ Spot
  • Soft Sky Classic Stampin’ Spot
  • River Rock classic Stampin’ Spot
  • An assortment of cardstock
  • twill tape
  • antique brass brads
  • Stampin’ dimensionals
  • Mini glue dots
  • 12 Very Vanilla envelopes

There is enough supplies in the kit to complete 10 cards- and of course you can simply order more cardstock supplies and make even more cards using the stamp set and inks.  This kit is normally $79.95 but the special price is $63.96

I will be placing an order on Monday 6th October to take advantage of this fantastic special- so if you are interested in ordering one of these Simply Sent Card sets at a 20% discount (or any other Stampin’ Up! supplies)  then please get in touch with me BEFORE Monday 6th October!  I will look forward to hearing from you!

Anniversary Day today

Well today it is our ninth Wedding Anniversay and I woke to find a card placed on top of Luke’s blankets.  Jason left for work before we  were up and he figured that I wouldn’t miss it (when my little alarm clock woke me up this morning!) Thanks Jason Love you! Next year it will be a decade.  Here’s to another few decades of Wedded bliss!

Now here’s a pic of our Wedding Day nine years ago (today)


and a pic of us on our Honeymoon in Mauritius

Recently, there have been a few people asking me about wanting to make Christmas cards.   J and B this post is especially for you!  🙂

If it is Christmas cards you’d like to make I’d like to make the whole ordering process easier for you!  Personally I would recommend looking at placing an order soon so that you can start your cards now and really enjoy the process rather than feeling the pressure of the Christmas rush!

  • First place to start is the Main Catalogue (Just click on the green catalogue on the left hand side)


  • Go  to pages 25- 31 for lots of great Christmas stamps sets (and there are also lovely ideas for how to use those stamp sets. (You are spoilt for choice with Stampin’ Up! as there are also Christmas stamps sets on pages 20-22 in the Spring Mini Catalogue)


  • Once you have decided on a stamp set you will need to select some cardstock and possibly some patterned paper.


  • If you were to use some patterned paper, the two ranges of patterned paper I would recommend for Christmas cards are “Dashing” on page 136 of the main catalogue and “Holiday Harmony” on page 19 of the Spring Mini Catalogue.


  • The patterned paper you select will help you to decide which cardstock colours and inks you can use.  You will find the ink and cardstock colours on pages 129- 131 of the main catalogue.


  • If you want to add that extra special touch there are some lovely ribbons and embellishments on pages 146-147 of the main catalogue!

I would be only to happy to help you pick out cardstock colours and ink colours.  Please send me an E-mail if you are interested in placing an order!
