New In-Colour Ribbon Sampler

One of the benefits of being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator is being part of a wider team and participating in swaps.  This time there were 25 of us who took part which meant making 25 of the same card and then swapping them with the others. Its good fun but also a great way to get lots of different samples, both cards and 3D products, to show you all.

This is what 25 swaps look like - have you spotted all the fabulous new product?  The awesome thing about this new designer series paper pack is, all my swaps are different and I still didn't use all the designs in the pack.

 
Here's a close up view of one:

 




 
It's a sampler of the new in-colours and the new ribbon to go with it:
 
I received some fabulous swaps in return.  If you'd like to see them and more new product, I'm having my catalogue launch here at home on the 12th July.  Its a FREE event where you'll complete a make and take and enjoy the new products over a drink and some afternoon tea.  Email me to let me know you're coming.

Off topic

Thought I'd share my proud Mum moment from today for a quick off topic.  Today my daughter had her run/walkathon at school.  They had to get sponsors and do as many laps of the school field as they could in 1 hour.  Her teacher was estimating she'd perhaps do about 7 or 8 laps but she managed to do 11 laps in total - go Emma!

My little one (she is 3), seeing Mummy joining Emma for a lap (to try and spur her on to do a faster lap and thus get more done), decided she wanted to join in too, so she did. She was the youngest participant on the field and she managed 4 laps herself. 

They are not sporty kids, they take after their Mum with their love of craft, but they went out there and tried their very best and they had fun doing it.  We're very proud of them both (as they were of their own achievements) and even though Aimee was not an official participant we will sponsor her too.

Project Life for Scrapbooking or Memory Keeping


 
Project Life by Stampin' Up! has been created to make it much easier to preserve your memories. Here are a couple of things that Stampin' Up! have to say about Project Life.
 
Q. How does it work?
A. It couldn’t be simpler: slip photos, mementos, and journaling into an album with Photo Pocket Pages. That alone will give you fabulous results (no scissors or glue required!); if you want to do more you can embellish your photos or cards with Project Life accessory packs or stamps. Our accessory packs are designed to coordinate perfectly with our card collections which makes stepping things up super simple.
 
Q. Who’s it for?
A. We’ve all heard people say scrapbooking takes too much time. You’ve probably had that thought yourself a time or two. That’s why Project Life works so well for all of us. It’s quick and easy and has a fresh approach. And for those who don’t do simple, you can embellish to your heart’s content. So in a nutshell, Project Life is for everyone —the scrapbookologists, the timid, and the skeptical.

The new range will be available in the new catalogue from 1st July, but Stampin' Up! are releasing some products early that you can order from today.  Click here to see what you can order now.
