2014_07_01 New 2014-15 SU! Catalogue, New Products, The Craft Spa

Finally it is here….. one of the best days of the Stampin’ Up! year… the day we get to show you the BRAND NEW catalogue - and order anything we want from it!! Though I have to admit that it has also just been the hardest few days of the year…. there are just too many decisions to be made as to what to use in workshops and then what to order with all these wonderful new goodies!!

So would you like to see all the lovely new products!! A few ways to do so…

Press on the picture above to see all the lovely new products in My Online Store.  Just press SHOP at the top right of the first screen…. and if you are shopping straightaway…don’t forget to make a note of the months’ hostess code shown to the top right of my blog!

Contact me at thecraftspa@gmail.com  for a hard copy. I wouldn’t be without mine!!!

Come to my Launch Party & BOGOF Sale running this Thursday 3rd & Friday 4th July.  Pick up a catalogue… Buy my retired products and get the same value to spend on new! See some new products & samples too…. Just contact me on thecraftspa@gmail.com for more details… Unfortunately not Saturday & Sunday as our Yorkshire roads will be covered by the Tour de France cyclists & entourage – so I will be rather inaccessible!

Watch this space for more news on the wonderful new products & lots of creative shares using new products.  But for today…. a few highlights of exciting new product areas…

Project Life & Stampin Up!


I was so happy to be able to order all of the kits this morning… as I know that this way of scrapbooking will be my way!! So I am looking forward to spending the summer finding photos and filling pockets to tell the stories …. and I might even add some stamping too!! Photo organising and creative scrapbooking all at the same time – and in one place…heaven! And hard pack version and digi versions too!

Do remember to contact me on thecraftspa@gmail.com to book or find out about the Project Life workshop series I am running over the next few months..starting in August…. Just £25 for the first session and £10 for follow on sessions – or even for free with SU! product orders….

Go to my earlier blog post here for a run down on the ideology and background to Project Life & Stampin’ Up!



These exclusive, alcohol-based marker sets come in a 3-pack of light, medium and dark shades (of the same colour), and provide your projects a more saturated look with blended colours. And because traditional alcohol markers require a bit of training, Stampin’ Up! have developed a few videos to ensure that Blendabilities are easy-to-use for everyone! Here is a video of them in action . You can also visit here here to view more videos.

What Sets Them Apart:

  • The Stampin' Up! rectangular barrel keeps your markers from rolling away!
  • Flat storage helps to maintain the life of each marker.
  • Each marker comes with a tip on each end: brush and fine.
  • Marker tips are made of nylon, which is superior to polyester which can fray.
  • Colour coded caps.
  • Stampin' Up! markers coordinate wonderfully with our cardstock, and can be used with transparent sheets … and a whole host of materials!!!

But for me…the biggest advantage over my previous dabbles with alcohol markers are that the colour matching/marker selection for the shades is already done for you… you just buy a pack with the 3 shades of the one colour…simples!…. so much easier… and going to be a whole lot cheaper too…! Love them…. but more on that another day….

Now a word of warning… not all of the colour sets will be available until 1st August…so here is what is! There are another 6 sets to come…


Doing my happy dance…. Can’t wait for my BIG box to turn up…
