On Stage Swaps #7 - the Other Blues...

Rounding up my Mini Series of General Swaps from the Stampin Up 2018 On Stage UK Telford event the other week... read more about the series here...

Today I bring you the Other Blues... mainly Bermuda Bay... but with Pool Party and Soft Sky thrown into the mix... and even some Pacific Point and Marina Mist...

And back to normal transmission now... as I am back from a few days away after having dropped the son & heir a long way away in South Wales... It's so nice to be able to make the most of the journey... and have a good mooch around a part of the country we didn't know very well... but are now getting to know rather well...

Aren't they all lovely... Thank you ladies... not just for swapping with me... but for your truly inspiring makes...

Global Stampin Friends Blog Hop - Exciting Times...

Hello and welcome to the Global Stampin Friends Blog Hop... with a simple theme of sharing our excitement for the new and upcoming 2018-19 Annual Catalogue... whether it be the "new" coming or the "old" carrying over...

So for me it had to be something new... along with a couple of returners...

So I have great pleasure in introducing 3 lovely new products...
The Lovely Floral embossing folder... for the main feature... Used for embossing the card and main panel... as well as fussy cutting for extra 3D effect... and also a little butterfly... but more on that later...

The Love What You Do stamp set... for a bit of extra detail in the wording and foliage to add some colour...

and last but not least... Faceted Dots... for the final pop!
These are part of a great suite ... the Share What You Love suite... which is being pre-released to the world - in 3 exciting bundles to suit everyone's budget - on 1st May... whereas everything else will have to wait until 1st June when the new 2018-19 Annual Catalogue goes live...
But if you cannot wait till May... you could join our Stampin Up family right now... and it could all be yours for £99... with another £11.25 of product to add to your starter kit too! Now that is great value...

Here are some pictures of the Share What You love suite leaflet but Click here for the full pdf leaflet... and/or click here for the Stampin' Up! video for an overview... including seeing the beautiful papers...

And the returners I mentioned... well... Minty is back!!! Yes Mint Macaron is coming back into play! I am delighted!! Along with Blackberry Bliss too... which I know will make lots of my ladies very happy! Click here to learn more about the Colour Revamp and the new colour range come 1st June...
And back to that little butterfly off to the right hand side... just a fussy cut of part of the smaller flower... like so...
And now it is time to pass you onto the talented Rebecca Urban... over in the USA...

And here is the full Roll Call...
