I was chatting to one of my customers the other day, and she told me she was confused by all the various platforms available for the Big Shot machine. She said she was never sure which platform she should be using at any given time, and asked if I could help her. I'm sure she's not the only one, so I've put together a video to explain what they're all for, and how to use each one. I hope you find it helpful!

There's a bit of a story to this video, and for a time I wasn't at all sure if you'd ever get to see it. I'd recorded it all before I realised that the video-editing software I've used in the past wasn't bundled with my new laptop. No problem, I thought: I'll download it. Er... no I won't. It's no longer available for download. As of the tenth of January. Two days before I looked for it. Seriously. Talk about frustrating! Anyhow, I found another one, obviously; there was a bit of a learning curve with it, but actually I think it's better than the software I've used before. Do let me know what you think.  

Enjoy, and I hope you're having a great day. Thanks for popping by!

Sale A Bration 2017 Stampin' Up! with Sunshine Stamping

This is one of the times of year that I look forward to the most. The weather outside may be dull and dreary, but in the world of Stampin' Up! the prospect couldn't be brighter.

It's Sale-A-Bration, folks! 

If you've been a Stampin' Up! devotee for a year or more, then you'll know all about Sale-A-Bration, and why I'm so excited about it, and you'll be chuffed to bits to know that it's here again with the same fantastic value, and even more gorgeous exclusive products. If you're new to the sunny land of Stampin' Up! then this blog post is intended to be a quick introduction for you. You'll soon be as excited about it as we all are!

The key word for Sale-A-Bration is "FREE". There are loads of free gifts available right the way through Sale-A-Bration (I'm going to call it SAB from now on - it's quicker to type!), and there are three different ways that you can get involved. 


Between 4th January and 31st March 2017, you'll get a free item of your choice from the SAB brochure for every £45 (60 Euro) you spend (excluding shipping). From exclusive stamp sets, to beautiful Designer Series Paper, gorgeous embellishments and even a beautiful storage caddy - there are loads to choose from, and there is no limit on the number of items you can earn.

Download the Online Sale-A-Bration Brochure here.

Download the Spring / Summer Catalogue here.

Visit my Online Shop by clicking here.



Host a qualifying party during SAB and you'll earn £20 (27 Euro) more in Stampin' Rewards. That gives you even more free Stampin' Up! goodies, just for having a great fun, crafty few hours. You can host in person, online (Facebook party, anyone?) or even just share the catalogue with your friends. The more you share, the more they order and the bigger the box of crafty loveliness coming your way. If you'd prefer, you can even put your Stampin' Rewards towards the cost of a Starter Kit - giving you a discount on all your future orders. Now that's a great deal!

Find out more here.



Join my team during SAB and you'll get even more in your Starter Kit. Our kit is always great value, but until 31st March, you can choose two additional stamp sets absolutely FREE. That's HUGE! There's no restrictions on the stamp sets you can choose, either, so you could go for the most expensive ones in our catalogues if you want. That means that for an outlay of just £99 (129 Euro) you could havewell over £200 worth of Stampin' Up! products coming your way - with no shipping to pay, and an ongoing discount of up to 25% on your future orders. You'll have your own business setup in a box, if that's what you want, too, though there's no obligation to run parties or classes (or even to place any more orders if you don't want to). You'll be laughing all the way to your craft space!

Find out more about what's involved.


So there you go. That's a little, potted guide to Sale-A-Bration 2017 - I knew you'd be excited about it! You have until 31st March to take as much advantage as you can of all these amazing offers, so whether you want to Shop, Host or Join, I know you're going to love the next three months. I'll leave you with a little taster of one of the gorgeous suites of products in the new Spring / Summer catalogue. We'll be using this one in my January classes, so if you're within reach of Ipswich I'd love you to join us. Enjoy!
