I’ve been organising my Stampin’ Cave this week, it started because of the retired list and I needed to clear the decks ready for my new goodies but as is the case with most ‘spring’ cleaning it’s got a bit out of hand……..! So far 3 full bin bags for the tip, 2 full bags of recycling and this morning it was at the ‘worst’ stage you know the one before it gets better………I’m hoping anyway!

As a consequence I have also been going through all my paperwork, and have lovely new folders and tick sheets it’s great and I have even been putting the filing away in the right place, I had a real DUH! moment this morning, I was tearing my hair out looking for some instructions for a box my team are making at team training next week, and my customers are making at their appreciation event at the end of the month, I looked everywhere and then realised I had put it exactly where it should be in the file marked…….Team training June ………I ask you is there any hope for me ?

Whilst you are pondering on that one…..Stampin’ Up! have launched 2 specials for June, I think maybe they forgot we have the excitement of the retired list ! If you are coming to Card Club tomorrow or on Friday we are making 3 cards using the Best of Flowers set, I LOVE it !!!!!

Best of………

Stampin’ Up! are celebrating their 25th year in business and are offering the Best of stamp sets every month for 5 months and focusing on a different theme every month.

This months Best of stamp set release is Flowers, they have taken images from past stamp sets and bought them all together in one clear mount stamp set and thrown in one brand new image for good measure!  The stamps may be different sizes to the original ones which makes it very exciting too.

You can see the images on this link here.

The stamp set is only available in clear mount and works with Block ‘D’ and is £13.95.

Single Stamps

We also have some new single stamps that are available until the 31st August 2013 or whilst stocks last.  The stamps are in cello bags, not boxes and they are in clear mount only.  They all work with block ‘E’

You can see the images on this link here.

So I do have some cards for you to see today, since I have been flitting about this week, some butterflies I  think are in order, I hope you like them.

Daring Adventure, Curly Cute and the ruffled ribbon are all on the retired list.


You need to hurry if you want the Regal Rose ribbon., it’s on the retired list.


2 versions of the next card, I love this layout of banners and butterflies.




So that’s all for me today, back into the Stampin’ Cave for some more organising, or maybe I’ll just pop out into the garden and find my hammock and the Kindle !
