My Favourite Things from Stampin' Up's 2014 Christmas Catalogue

The new Christmas catalogue has been available for a few days now, and you can download a PDF version for yourself here.

If you prefer a printed copy, you can drop by and pick one up with your next order, or send me an email or text message and I'll post one out to you.

As a Stampin Up Demo I get to preview each new catalogue early, and order things early to play with them before the catalogue "goes live". That's the theory anyway, but sometimes I don't have the chance to play with new products before they become available to everyone.

But I've seen lots of fabulous ideas using the new Christmas products on my Facebook groups and on Pinterest as well as blogs of other Stampin Up Demonstrators.

So in alphabetical order, here are my favourite things in the new catalogue:

1. Bright & Beautiful stamp set - 8 stamps, Wood $56.95, Clear $42.95
I know snowflakes aren't exactly Australian, but I've seen gorgeous cards and 3D ornaments made with these, they look especially beautiful embossed in gold embossing powder.

The star framelit dies match up with these too.
2. Christmas Bauble wood mount stamp, $18.95

Definitely one for colouring.

3. Festival of Trees photopolymer stamp set bundle - 13 stamps plus tree punch, $48.95. The stamp set on it's own is $27.95 and the punch is $29.95.

4. Trim the Tree Designer Series Paper Stack $11.95 for a pad of 48 sheets of patterned paper 6 1/2" x 4 1/2".
 Very traditional Christmas colours.

5. Wondrous Wreath Photopolymer stamp set bundle - 9 stamps plus framelits, $74.50. The stamp set on it's own is $44.95 and the framelits set of dies is $42.95.
Well these are the ones I've got, so hopefully I'll share some projects made using these soon.

Watercolouring Bloom With Hope

Sorry for my absence from blogging, other things have been happening, so updating the blog has fallen down the priority list of things to do.

Today I'm sharing a card using the Bloom With Hope Hostess set from the 2014-2015 Annual Catalogue. I've stamped the flower onto Whisper White cardstock with StazOn black ink, and watercoloured it using my aqua painter and Lost Lagoon and Hello Honey inks. The card base is Lost Lagoon and the ribbon is the lovely 1/8" Basic Black taffeta ribbon. The splats at the top of the card are from Gorgeous Grunge, using Lost Lagoon ink.

I saw this card on Pinterest with a different sentiment. Lisa Poe is the original designer, and it was featured on Heather Van Looy's blog.

Retiring List for 2014 Catalogue

Our new Catalogue will be released on July 1, and that means we have to make way for lots of lovely brand new products. So, it's time to say goodbye to some old favourites. Some items are heavily discounted and all are only available while stocks last.

The best way to make sure you don't miss out is to place your order in my Online Store. If you prefer to email me your order, that's OK too.

I think the easiest way to view what's retiring is in the Online Store (make sure you check out the Weekly Deals and Clearance Rack while you're there!)

You can also view the Retiring Accessories List HERE

And the Retiring Stamps List HERE

Some items are discounted by 40% ...but you'd better get in quick!
