No Bones About It ....

Hi there, what a lovely day, nice to have some warm weather, although it is still a little changeable. I was lucky enough to go to our teams "social stamping" event for a few hours on Sunday, it gave us a chance to share some of our new STASH :)   how exciting. I was only able to order a few things on pre-order (for demo's)  but the all new annual catalogue goes live from 3rd June, so I can't wait to get my hands on my favourites. Although I have started to make a few samples from the new products, I think it's a little early yet, to start to show them, so I thought I would post this card that I made with Julie's (my upline's) stamp set. I have used the botanicals papers
which will be retiring shortly, but you will still be able to get the stamp set (page 46 of the current catalogue). :) Enjoy.

New In - Colours 2016-2018

Looking forward to the release of the new catalogue, not long now. I have just spotted this post on one of the american demo's sites (Mary Fish)  and love her suggestions for colour coordination with the new in-colours, here's a sneak peak .....

Dapper Denim may be my favourite.  It’s a rich, deep blue with a hint of green and reminds me of retired Stampin’ Up! colour Not Quite Navy.

Flirty Flamingo is a warm, clear pink.  I think it will be stunning with the copper accessories coming in the new catalogue.

Emerald Envy is a crisp, green.  It has a blue base that sets it apart from many of the Stampin’ Up! greens.

Peekaboo Peach fills a gap in the Stampin’ Up! colours for a soft, pastel orange.  It will “rock out” the copper accessories, too!

Sweet Sugarplum is a lovely orchid and a colour trend in fashion and home

Little Visit ....

well I've have a nice relaxed week this week, I have only worked one day !!! and have had time to finally visit my friend Lesley's "new" house, it's only taken me about 18 months to get there which has made me feel really bad, but I went on Wednesday and we spent our time playing with paper of course !!! Here's a little project we started, non SU I'm afraid, but hopefully my new stash will arrive this week, so I will be able to make some samples before the new catalogue launch in June ....
