Gifts and cards for my lovely ladies!

I love running my Stampers 6 clubs! It's lovely to get to know my ladies and chat about these gorgeous products and I really enjoy sorting out all the freebies for them. To make the parcels even more fun to open, I like to make cards and little gifts to go inside - come and see:

One of the perks of belonging to my Stampers 6 club is that you get free catalogues - and you get to see them early too! In April, my ladies received the new summer mini catalogue before it launched on the 1st May along with this card show-casing some of the new items.

I'm often told that the cards give my ladies ideas for techniques or designs and they act as a useful template. This one features the gorgeous new Bright Blossoms stamp set and the bakers twine in Calypso Coral - I couldn't wait to get my mitts on that!

Tiny punched flowers look gorgeous with the vases - I chose the four-petalled flower from the Itty Bitty punch pack - and it came in very handy to make a little indent to hold the bakers twine in place too!

This is a little gift I put into the ladies' parcel with the card and their goodies. It's a mini post-it note holder and I made it with the new Labels framelits and the fabulous Apothecary Art stamp set. The flap fits behind the label to keep the holder closed...

... and opens up to reveal a coordinating post it pad! It's easy for my ladies to replicate these themselves and if they get stuck, I'm always here to help.

There are lots of benefits to joining my Stampers 6 club: free products of your choice in your hostess month, the opportunity to get exclusive stamp sets and papers, free catalogues, personal coaching, handmade gifts and cards... If you'd like to receive a parcel of lovely Stampin' Up goodies each month, put together with the personal touch, do send me an email and I'll add you to my waiting list.

I've had a lovely week with my daughter on study leave. When she's not been at an exam, she's been revising while I work and she really is the best fun to have around! Yesterday I caught her singing the Abba song I Have a Dream to the cat. Instead of 'you can see the wonder of a fairy tale' she changed the lyric to 'you can see the wonder of a furry tail'. Isn't she a scream?!

I hope you have a lovely weekend. See you soon!
