Strolling down Sycamore Street

Happy 1st of Feb Everyone!!!  Ooooh this is so exciting!! 
Why all the excitement?  Well today sees the launch of the new Spring/Summer Mini Catalogue.  Loads of new scrummy lovliness inside to drool over.  You can look through the catalogue below but first let me share my card for today.

Take a look by clicking here

I've broken away from clean and simple to play along with Freshly Made Sketches not that you can't be CAS and still play.  Just that today I fancied a change and challenged myself to use Designer Paper.

Isn't this paper just fabulous?  It's called Sycamore Street and it's free.  Yep you read that correctly!  You can choose this from 17 free Sale-A-Bration products this year when you spend £45.  This is an amazing time with Stampin' Up!, we have loads more than usual to celebrate 25 years.  Have a look at the brochure on my side bar and come celebrate with us!

I should also point out that there's a co-ordinating stamp set for these papers which is also free during Sale-A-Bration.  How fab is that?

So for my card I started with a 6" by 6" Baja Breeze card base and matted this beautiful paper on Rich Razzleberry.  I then made a tag out of Rich Razzleberry.  Did you notice the embossing along the bottom?  I used a fabby new set of embossing folders from the new catalogue called Needlepoint Border.  For further decoration I added a strip of co-ordinating paper and a tab of Baja Breeze to the top before stapling some Rich Razzleberry ribbon.

For the heart I used my new stamp set from the mini catalogue - Hearts a Flutter.  I stamped the largest heart stamp in Rich Razzleberry onto another piece of this gorgeous designer paper and die cut with the Hearts A Flutter Framelits. You can purchase the stamps and framelits together in a bundle and save 15%!   The heart was attached with Dimensionals and I made the little banners with the Bitty Banner Framelits out of Rich Razzleberry and Whisper White.  I stamped "Love" from Tiny Tags in Baja Breeze before die cutting. Then attached the banners together with a Rich Razzleberry brad before attaching with a glue dot.  

Here's a photo of how I finished off the inside.

I'm also excited to announce I've opened up a little shop!  A virtual one.  The Coffee Morning Shoppe. I'd love you to come in and have a browse and let me know what you think.  You can click on it on my header bar.  It's still under construction so bear with me!  The tables aren't set out yet..... Hee Hee.

I hope you've enjoyed seeing some of the new products in action.  Between this supplement and the main catalogue I'm sure you'll have a wish list as long as your arm!  Mine is.  Why not consider joining my Stampers 6 starting in April?  You'll spread the cost of your wish list, have the excitement of receiving a parcel every month, and don't forget you will be hostess for one of those months.  I'll keep you informed of any new promotions and you'll receive all the current catalogues for free to flick through and keep for ideas.  Interested? Want more details? Have a look at my Virtual Hostess Page or email me on  Of course that doesn't mean you have to wait till April to shop I'm more than happy to help you with your orders in the meantime. x
