Time is running out for the Stampers 10 club

As mentioned in the Jan newsletter, a new Stampers 10 Club will be starting in Feb. This is a terrific way to budget your purchases over a 10 month period and receive hostess benefits.

By purchasing £15 of Stampin’ Up! products a month for 10 months (£15.75 including p&p), you build your stamping supplies, stay on budget, and receive free goodies!

If you're interested in joining the club (even if you've already told me), you now need to send me your signed agreements & 2 undated cheques. Click here to access full information on the club - there is a link to the agreement at the bottom, which you need to print, complete & return to me no later than 31st Jan if you wish to take part.

If we don't get enough members, then this club can't go ahead. Don't miss out - get your agreements to me now!

Tag You're It! workshop

The Tag You're It! workshop was on Thursday night & here's a picture of what we made - 5 cards & a card wrap to hold them in. All items have been made using the tag punches, but using various different techniques. The card in the centre with "cute" on it is actually a bookmark made using the long tag technique. The blue card next to it also has a bookmark on it - made with a long paperclip. The green card next to the cute card doesn't have a flower on the tag - it has a hole in it & the flower is on the card!


Punched Creations workshop

We had fun on this workshop! All these items are made using punches - just to show you how versatile all those lovely Stampin' Up! punches are! Spongebob was definitely the hardest - he took nearly an hour on his own!! I think I should have shaded the lion, as I have done with the other animals - he looks a bit flat!


Stepper Box

This is the box we made on the Stepper Box workshop. As you can see, the box opens out to show 4 small boxes to keep jewellery, desk items like paper clips, staples, etc & other small things - you could make several to keep all your small items handy! This sample has been made using the Tart & Tangy stamp set & Picnic designer paper.

Christmas Table Decoration workshop

We made a stamped candle & candle holder, stamped napkins, napkin rings, place cards, drinks mats & favour boxes. Everything was kept in a matching box (not shown).

Christmas Bags, Tags & Wrap workshop

Here are 3 of the bags we made on the workshop. We also stamped some tags using the Tags for All stamp set plus we made some wrapping paper by stamping with the Stampin' Around wheels on plain white paper.

Stampin' Up! Christmas Cards

Here are the 4 cards we made on the Stampin' Up! Christmas Cards workshop. I love the (now retired) Flaky Friends stamp set! I also loved the contemporary look of the Season of Joy card.

Christmas Stamp a Stack

Here are the 5 cards made for the Christmas Stamp a Stack - each person made 2 of each card (10 in total). Again, go to the gallery (clicking the link above) to see pictures of the individual cards.

Christmas Gifts & Stocking Fillers

This is what we made on the Christmas Gifts & Stocking Fillers workshop - a stationery kit, a pamper kit, a boxed male gift, some reindeer poop & a "yummy" box of chocs!

For close up pics & to see what's inside the Stationery Kit & the Pamper Kit, click the link above for the RSW projects gallery.

Tart & Tangy Notelets

Here's the box & one of the notelets made at the Tart & Tangy Notelets workshop. The box & notelets were made using SU's Tart & Tangy stamp set, card & the Picnic designer series paper. To view all of the notelets, visit the gallery (the link is above) - I didn't want to clog the blog up by putting all the pics here.

So Swirly Card Box & Fun & Fast Notes Cards

This is another card box & set of cards, this time made using the So Swirly wheel to decorate the box. The cards were made using the Fun & Fast Notes stamp set. To see each card in detail, visit the RSW Projects gallery on the RSW web site (link is above).

A bit of a catch up!

As I haven't updated my blog in ages, I'm about to do a massive catch up of all the pics I've taken recently. I've updated the Stampin' Up! offer - check it out - it's a fantastic offer that runs until the end of Feb - earn exclusive stamp sets. Click the picture over on the right for full details.
