The Autumn/Winter Mini is here - and its fab!!!

Don't you love a long weekend!!! It gives you extra time to spend with your family and friends, and if you're like me to squeeze in some time for your favourite activities. If you've come to my blog you obviously love paper craft - and I'm delighted to give you something to drool over this long weekend - the new Mini from Stampin' Up! Go make a cuppa, get out a pen and paper (for your wish list) and spend some time in the new Mini. It's fabulous and will inspire you to get to your craft space and get creative.

You can download the brand new Mini online HERE.

If you would like a copy of the Autumn/Winter Mini mailed to you, just email me with your address details, and I'll be happy to pop one in the post for you. (Australia only)

It's chock full of new items which have all made it onto my lust list - and are slowing making onto my shelves (don't tell hubby!). Stampin’ Up! Australia have released their Big Shot with dies that are exclusive to Stampin’ Up! The Big Shot is a sturdy manual die cutting machine used to die cut materials for use on crafts, home d├ęcor projects, and even clothing! You'll be able to cut and score 3-D items in seconds, or create embellishments for cards, scrapbook pages, or any other type of project by cutting multiple images at once.

Stampin’ Up! have also released Clear Mount Stamps - woot!!! They are the same high quality rubber that you are used to with our wood mount stamps but they cling to clear blocks. And as an added bonus you can adhere a sticker to the back of the rubber so you can see the image through the clear block for perfect placement - how amazing is that - LOVE IT!!! The Vintage Vogue stamp set I used in my last 2 blog posts is a great example of the clear mount stamp - I LOVE IT!!!!! Don't worry though. If you can't bear the thought of giving up your wood blocks you have a choice. All the stamp sets from the new Winter Mini catalogue (except one plus wheels) come with the choice of traditional Wood Mount or Clear Mount.

And I'm not finished yet can you believe it? They also have a new designs of slim line punches. My favourite is the Extra-Large Two-Step Bird that I used yesterday. I fell in love with this the moment I opened the mini and had to have it.

But wait there's more..... new colours. There are 3 fab new colours in inks, ribbon and card stock. I couldn't resist all 3! Check out how stunning they look on page 21 of the mini.

So that's it from me today. Over the next few days you'll see a lot more examples from me using some of the items from the new mini. I'll also be featuring the new products in my upcoming classes so come along if you want to have a play with them. They are truly stunning.

Thanks for stopping by.
