Last class from the 2012-13 catalogue

Thanks again to the lovely ladies who come to my class at Elvaston. They always put a smile on my face. I had this one planned for ages as I really thought The Best of Everything set would carry on into the next catalogue. As usual I was thwarted so this was its first & last outing!

We made a cute Birdhouse style box card which can be tied with ribbon to keep its box shape, stood with its doors open so you can read the greeting & see the beautiful stamping and best of all, folded flat for posting.

The little bluebell flowers are so easy to make with the Itty Bitty punches and they also make lots of other cute little flowers,  it's going to be difficult NOT to put them onto every card. The colours are Wisteria Wonder and Pool Party, inspired by the view out of my craft room window.

I've just taken this photo but the pale forget-me-nots seem to have disappeared.

One at a time, please!

I've only been away for a weekend but so much is happening. Next bit of news is that you now buy a selection of Single Stamps. Just like 'The Best of" sets, these are only available in clear mount and for a limited time until 31 August .

Unlike the sets, these Single Stamps come cello-wrapped rather than the clear cases, however if you wish you can always order them too (Item 119105 Four Clear-mount Stamp Cases).

Celebrating the Best of Stampin' Up!

This year is Stampin' Up!'s  25-year anniversary and to celebrate they are bringing back some of our all-time favourite stamp images from the last quarter century and combining them into five sets, which will be released, one set per month—until October 2013.

Every month, something new!
Each stamp set will have 3-5 images based around a theme and along with some great classics which you may remember, the “Best of” set will also include a never-before-seen image!

All Best of stamp sets are in Clear-Mount only and will be just £13.95. All of the Best of sets will be available until March 31, 2014.

This month we are celebrating the Best of Flowers,
