Picture Perfect Birthday Wishes For You

Stampin’ Up! #1 Demonstrator Pootles – Picture Perfect Birthday Wishes For You

Yay, it’s back! The 12 Deals of Christmas from the last 4 years have been so popular that I couldn’t not bring it back to you again this year….!

Details are down at the bottom…!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!! It’s 2018 and I really can’t wait to see what this year brings us!

I know I usually give you a video project on a Monday, but as it’s New Year’s Day and quite possibly we are all enjoying a get together with friends and family, I decided to share a pretty card project with you. Normal service will resume on Wednesday and Friday, and then from the week after, I’ll be back to my usual 3 videos a week and of course, my now infamous Annual SpringWatch 14 day video series is coming up very soon, but today, I’m keeping it quick and simple!

We have an amazing new catalogue starting on Wednesday and in it is a wonderful paper pack that has photographic imagery on it. I am absolutely in love with it and can’t wait for you all to see and use it too!

I pulled out one of the sheets with confetti squares on it and used it as my backdrop. Isn’t it fabulous?

I love the Birthday Wishes For You stamp set that’s right inside the front cover and taking some inspiration from the project shown there, I used Washi Tape on mine too. Although I used the gorgeous Myths & Magic suite rather than the main catalogue. Then I scattered some new adhesive backed sequins on it from the Tutti Frutti suite, and they happen to be today’s gift!

Job done!

How cute is it? Swap around the cardstock and sequin colours and you can have a card for anyone of any age or gender!

Happy Monday everyone and I’m sending all my new year love to you

12 Deals of Christmas.

So, what’s this all about? Well, I don’t do sales, and I don’t do discounts. In my professional opinion, Stampin’ Up! offers the best quality products at the best prices around (and with over 10 years crafting experiences, trust me, I’ve tried ‘em all!). So you won’t ever see me offering to reduce the prices of products, or sharing my discount. But what I want to do, as a one off, just for Christmas, is offer 12 extra goodies that go into the regular Thank You Gift Pack that I send out to all my customers.

Each ‘deal’ will only be available for the stated day, and will vary in price, product and value.

I get an immediate email notification of all orders that come in, so you don’t need to worry about getting in touch, or emailing to say you want to take advantage of the deal, I’ll send it out automatically. 

Please note, if you select NO CONTACT, I cannot, by law, send you anything. Please make sure that you deselect that button….

Today’s Deal is –

All orders over £60 will receive a pack of Tutti-Frutti Adhesive-Backed Sequins from me, as well as their regular Thank You Gift Pack. It will come direct from me, as this is an offer direct from me. It will not come with the order you place. If you use the hostess code for the month, it will still count for Both!

Fine Print. This is not a catch, there is no single winner, this is not a competition. Please do not add it to your order, (unless of course you want duplicates!) as I will be sending this separately.

All Thank You Gift Packs will be posted after the 12 Deals of Christmas have finished.

I hope you enjoyed this project, please do use the hostess code to get free product! (hostess code shown in the top right of my blog for the current one!) Learn more HERE. If your order is over £150, please do not use this code as You become the hostess and get the Rewards!
