What’s happening!?


Well, where to begin as there has been a lot going on! 

At the recent On Stage event held in Rotterdam, the new 2024-26 in colours were released.  These are lovely pastels: peach pie, petunia pop, pretty in pink, shy shamrock and summer splash.  Plus, we also have an addition of a new colour to the basic range, basic beige joins us for the new catalogue.


We have two new kits in the kit collection, these are the By Your Side Kit and Hooray for Honeycomb Kit.

Kits by Stampin’ Up! are perfect for new crafters, busy crafters, or crafters who want quick and easy projects – sometimes you just want to settle down and get the creativity straight out of the box. All-inclusive project kits have everything you need in one box! Give as a gift or try them yourself. Kits are while supplies last.


I know we have just come to April, we have the retiring lists for the outgoing main and mini catalogue and are preparing to receive the 2024-2025 catalogue.    The FREE pdf will be avaialble for you to download ready for when it goes live on 1 May, if you would like to have this when I can email it out contact me and I will add you to the mailing list – alternatively, sign up for my newsletters and blog updates if you haven’t already as a post is scheduled to go out when the time is right!

It’s free delivery for items in my Scraporium od retried Stampin’ Up! (and other items should I add them).  Use the code “FREE” when checking out!  [UK address only I’m afraid].

As is the way of the world and commerce, Stampin’ Up! strives to provide us crafters with the best paper crafting products and experiences, without sacrificing the quality Stampin’ Up! is known for, all while being mindful of cost and other important considerations. They regularly review pricing, taking into account the cost of doing business, global exchange rates, increased supplier costs, and market comparisons. But, as we all know, with increased costs to produce items, some items will have new pricing effective on 1 May 2024:

Classic Stampin’ Ink Refills
Stampin’ Blends
Select Specialty Inks
Embossing Pastes
Stampin’ Spots
Select Notecards and Envelopes
Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machines and Plates
Select Storage
Select Tools
Select Adhesives

I think that’s it for now! 

Hooray for Honeycomb

New Catalogue + Sale-a-bration time

Hello friends

Short and sweet is this blog post!

It’s Sale-a-bration time plus we also have the shiny new mini catalogue that is full of goodness.  

For every £45 of product you order, choose yourself a freebie from the level 1 selections, £90 and you choose something from the level 2 selection, or two level 1s, from the sale-a-bration brochure.  

You can go straight to the shop and, well, shop.  If you want to get a digital copy of the new mini catalogue and the sale-a-bration brochure to prepare your shopping list, you can do so by clicking the images below.

I haven’t decided on a favourite from the new mini catalogue, although I must admit, the Scottie Dog bundle is so cute, and then there are the Gnomes.  Of course, when you have your £45 product order, you might find that the hippos are pretty cute and these become your freebie from the sale-a-bration offering!

I hope you enjoy the new offerings, as always thank you for choosing to shop with me, it is very much appreciated.
