Today's the day!

Off to London in an hour but thought I would up date you before I go.

I am expecting the new ideas book to be on line today ( I would think about noon) at the following link


I can see the Americans are working hard to get things up and running! Keep checking!

There are so many great additions to the Stampin' Up! offering. Top of my list is the scallop edge punch - page 86. I managed to get my hands on a great stamp set earlier this month. Season of Joy - page 21 - on the face of it looks like a Christmas set but oh my the swirl is so fab and the flowers are lovely and sooooo flexible!

Launch offer

As a new ideas book launch offer I am offering free P&P on all orders placed by 10pm on 2 October if I can deliver locally. That's a saving of 5% of your order! If you live further away I am happy to charge only the actual postage costs to me to get you the goods!

Birthday offer - Stampin' up! is 20!

How fab is this offer!

Spend £20 and qualify to purchase any preselected birthday/celebration stamp sets at 20 percent off. Offer from 1 Oct to 31 Oct but if you order before tomorrow evening it will be free p&p as outlined above.

Take one stamp set.....

All stamped images are copyright Stampin' Up! 1990 to 2008.

Add a few sheets of card stock, some embossing powder, some ribbon and a few brads! These are samples for my Mum's workshop later this month.

I do not think the colours are true on here but took pics at night!

If you want to order the set let me know. Order going in on 2 Oct and will be free P&P! email me for further details stampingwithhelen@yahoo.co.uk

Hope you like these. If you do please leave me a comment. Thanks

MIL's present continues.....

All stamped images are copyright Stampin' Up! 1990 to 2008.

Her is her card. I am liking these pop up cards at the moment! DH thinks MIL will not get it but am I bothered!
It is a special birthday for MIL this year. I am assuming she will have some thank you's to send so have made her a stack of thank you cards!. Like this holder - one piece of card.
oh dear - do not know how to turn!
colours are better IRL!

okay time for some eye candy....

So this is a minibook I have done for my MIL. It is of my DD's birthday makeover at Disney back in Feb. All stamped images (apart from letters) are copyright to Stampin' Up! as are the inks and Card stock.

I have a craft fair coming up to raise some money for school. Attached are some lollies and mints of starters!

I am going to do separate posts as just takes too long to sort pics otherwise!
