Happy New Stampin’ Up! Catalogue Day

A new catalogue is always an exciting time, and this one especially, not only are there lots of new crafting supplies, it has a new layout and so many things to see.

We have 5 brand new In Colors which you are sure to love with their bright sunny hues and after a bit of waiting, a pink!

Whether you’re looking for Step-by-Step crafting perfect for beginners, Quick & Easy options to take your crafting beyond the basics, or products and inspiration that help you experience Creativity Your Way, our new catalogue will be a source of inspiration as well as your crafting best friend.

Plus, don’t forget we have the Online Exclusive and Kits ranges which are only available online and do not appear in the catalogue.  

Perusing my Online Shop is the easiest way to view all of our products.  If you’d like to wander through the digital catalogue, click the image on the right hand side and it will take you to current catalogues.

Enjoy and have a great day!


Get creative : Ice Cream!

Stepping It Up: Ice Cream Swirl Bundle

Strawberry or vanilla? Or, maybe chocolate?  With the Ice Cream Swirl Bundle (which includes the Ice Cream Swirl Stamp Set and Dies) you can create your own flavour! It also happens to be a perfect choice for step-up projects!

What’s the scoop on the “CASEable” version?

Keep it simple by using tone-on-tone stamping, die-cut images, a Lighter than Air Designer Series Paper banner embellishment, and a trio of our Rainbow Adhesive-Backed Dots. Finish it off with a sentiment stamped in Bubble Bath ink on Basic White Cardstock. Sweet!

Approachable Avid
To make the yummy and refreshing “Approachable Avid” card really pop, make a simple frame with Pool Party Cardstock and use the ice cream swirl and wafer cone detail dies to add an extra layer of fun.

The striped, Lighter than Air Designer Series Papes (with its ice cream parlour vibe) provides the perfect, pastel background.

Artfully Avid
To create the “Artfully Avid” Pool Party Cardstock gift packaging, start with a watercolour wash on Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper and die cut the shapes (including a cherry and rolled wafer biscuit, this time!).

Do you love the scalloped ice cream cone wrapper and the sunny Lemon Lolly Baker’s Twine bow?

Such cute touches make this the perfect gift packaging for any summer occasion!

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!

Sarah’s Scraporium

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


By your side
