A sneaky peek - Halloween Stampin' Up! style

With less than a week to go I thought I'd let you have a sneaky peek at a couple of projects that I've made with the new Halloween papers and stamps from Stampin' Up. I love these little pumpkins - the set is called Jack of all Trades, and the  designer paper set is Frightful Sight. The orange ink used could only be one colour - Pumpkin Pie!

I was lucky enough to get my hands on these early, but you can order from me from 1st October. Check below for details of my launch party if you are free on the 1st.

New catalogue launch party

October is the most exciting time of year for devotees of Stampin' Up - it's the launch of the new Idea Book and Catalogue!

I'm going to host my first ever new catalogue launch party to celebrate and introduce you to all the lovely goodies on offer. It will be on the very day the catalogue is launched - 1st October and will run as a drop in from 12 until 4pm at my house.

As a special deal for the 1st you will be able to buy the new catalogue at just £3.50 (RRP £5.95) and I will also be offering a very special BOGOF deal! I will have lots of retiring items including stamps, ribbons and designer papers and for every pound spent on the retiring items you will be able to spend another pound in the new catalogue!

There will be a chance to play with some of the new items that I've been able to get my hands on early with a Make and Take. So that I can be fully prepared could you please let me know if you'll be coming along by 23rd September, and if you are going to bring a friend along. Remember that there is no charge for this launch party! I will also be having a raffle with some fabulous prizes and a catalogue treasure hunt. You will get 1 ticket for coming along, and another 1 if you place an order on the day, and yet another 1 if you book a workshop on the day.

I've also been finalising some of my projects for the next couple of classes too - I've got some great Christmas items ready so I'll let you have the details in my next newsletter and full details will be available at the launch party.

Test Drive the Starter Kit

With the new catalogue out in just 2 weeks now is a perfect time to think about signing up as a demo.
I signed up when I discovered that I could substitute items from the starter kit for ones of my own choice, and that there was absolutely no obligation to do anything after I had bought the starter kit!

The kit is £119 and for that you get £230 worth of goodies, once you are signed up you will get 30% of your first order and you get to keep 20% of every order that you place.

If you are interested then there are more details on my 'Join My Team' page, or just call me on 07877042498 or email me at niki.ridge.nr@googlemail.com.

Stampin' Up Last Chance Blog Hop

The lovely ladies at ILWS are having a blog hop to see off some of our retiring old favourites in style! We're not too sad because it means that our lovely new catalogue with all it's new gorgeous items will be live from 1st October.

I've chosen 2 of my absolute favourite sets that are retiring, Beware Pirates and Plane and Simple which was in our mini this year. Both cards are based around crumb cake and black card and use the linen twine for a highlight. The gorgeous papers on the plane card are also retiring - if you want to get your hands on either the stamp sets or the papers give me a shout on niki.ridge.nr@googlemail.com. They are around until stocks last or the end of this month depending which happens first, so if you want something don't delay! You can find the full list of retiring items here

Make sure you hop on over to Sarah-Jane's awesome blog to see what wonderful creations she's come up with - Happy Hopping!
