STUNNED BY STAMPIN' UP'S NEW STAMPS!
So what are my favourite new products? As always, I go straight to the heart of stamping - the stamps themselves! And there are many new ones in all sorts of different styles to suit everyone. Check out the amazing Work of Art with those brilliant brush strokes (see more of my Work of Art cards here):
And how about these new sets (projects by Stampin' Up's designers, clockwise from right) Kinda Eclectic, perfect for collages; Hot Diggety Dog, a cute set for dog lovers; one for cat people too, You Little Furball; and the superb new Cheers to Love for all things wedding related. There's even a special section of outline stamps for Blendability addicts (like me!) starting on p.167.
But my new absolute number one favourite (at the moment) is Something for Baby!
This set is not just for baby cards believe me! I have heaps of ideas for using it coming up next week, so don't miss that!
FRANTIC FOR STAMPIN' UP'S PHOTOPOLYMER SETS!
High-quality clear stamps which enable you to see exactly where you're stamping, give excellent results with the Stampin' Up ink and are competitively priced? Yes please - I'm a fan! There are loads of new photopolymer stamp sets in the new Stampin' Up catalogue and Flower Patch is certainly one of my favourites. See it here on this label stamped by one of Stampin' Up's designers:
Isn't it fab?! There are no less than 19 different elements in this set and there are even coordinating framelits! Oh and if you buy the stamp set and framelits together, you save 15%! Isn't that what we love to hear?!
We also love to hear these beautiful words:

The 2013-2014 in-colours are favourites of mine with their cool ice-cream colours and I'm loving the current sequin trend. Put those things together and you get an exquisite new sequin assortment that has me squealing with excitement!
MAD FOR STAMPIN' UP MASKS!
Masking is another current trend wowing everyone in the craft industry at the moment and Stampin' Up has two brilliant sets of two: Hearts and Stars, and Dots and Stripes. Spray them or sponge them for different looks - they're great fun!
This little bag made by one of Stampin' Up's designers looks so effective!
POTTY ABOUT STAMPIN' UP PROJECT LIFE!
I just love the idea of popping photos in pockets, journaling on ready-made cards and adding colour-coordinated embellishments. Isn't this a beautiful page from the catalogue?
And how about this sweet layout?
If you never seem to have a minute to record your memories these days, you might find this easy Stampin' Up Project Life system is the answer!
There are lots of stamp sets designed especially for Project Life which are also great for cardmaking - like Day to Day, a useful photopolymer set I used to make this card to celebrate the Stampin' Up new year!
It would work for any special day of course and would make a great birthday card for teens or males, or an anniversary card for a guy that doesn't do hearts or frills!
DOPEY ABOUT STAMPIN' UP DESIGNER PAPER
A good variety of designer paper is a must in any craft room for cards, 3D projects and gift wrapping. Stampin' Up has a wide range this year, from the vintage book style of Typeset to the bright Sweet Taffy and everything in between!
There are two new versions of the popular small stacks too, ideal for card makers. The tag on this gift was made with a Blackberry Bliss honeycomb design from the Moonlight stack - and check out the lush matching ribbon too!
IDIOTIC FOR STAMPIN' UP'S NEWEST IN-COLOURS!

I've fallen in love with these fabulous new colours and have found they breathe new life into many of the existing colours too! Click here for my full intro to the 2014-2015 Stampin' Up in-colours.
These amazing, blendable alcohol markers are every bit as fabulous as I'd hoped! (Click here to see some of my samples.) If you want to add streak-free, air-brush style to your colouring arsenal, these are definitely for you.

Memento black ink (£5.50) is available to use with the markers and a Colour Lifter (£4.50) to correct small mistakes and create highlights.
