My Favourites in the new Annual Catalogue...

So I have spent a few weeks excitedly exploring the new Catalogue... and writing lists... and rewriting lists!! And I have made a few anguishing decisions and now I can share my Favourites with you!

Warning this is a long post with lots of photos - and in no particular order! As there is SO much to love... Just click on the highlighted link or photo to go to see the product...

Very Vanilla Card*
3 new items added.... and I was SO SO happy when I saw them...

The New 2017-19 In Colours
Oh how I love thee... I think this is the best In Colour Collection we have ever had... gorgeous!

Click here for my Launch Offers for the 2017-19 In Colour Half- Pack Kit and the Monthly Club. Offers (available until 21st June) If you want a Full Pack kit ... you really should think about signing up with Stampin' Up!...

Check out the co-ordinating Fresh Florals Suite... these papers are the new 2017-19 In Colour version of my class favourite Floral Boutique Navy & White papers last year and I hope that you now understand why I hinted about buying the Floral Phrases stamp set...

And would you like to guess at my favourite colour!!? And definitely the overwhelming favourite for most of my class ladies too! They do make it too easy for me...

Love Today Planner Kit
Squeal! I do so love an organiser and this is a great one!!! And I think this may be the item that goes in and out of stock on numerous occasions! Hope there are 10s of 1000s in the warehouse!
Love Today Planner Kit
 A totally customisable yearly planner to get organised starting from today... and to give you a creative outlet too! I have been busily filling up my Bullet Journal pages so I can start afresh when it arrives...

And not forgetting the Tabs For Everything which co-ordinates perfectly if you like a tab or two (punch & bundle not available until 15th June though)

The New Glues*
Didn't know I needed the Mini Stampin Dimensionals until now!! And I so do! No more cutting away at the side of my large hexagons when I need something smaller!
Mini Stampin' Dimensionals
And Multipurpose Adhesive sheets back... getting glue on those fancy die cuts just got way easier! Fantastic... I know I will have a lot of few happier ladies in classes... and crafting at home!

Embossing Paste and Masks*
Can't wait to get my hands on these... and already on their way... Pattern Party Masks, Embossing Paste and Palette Knives... just add white or coloured texture... and check out the bricks!!! Think you may see these used a lot!

How many is that... oh 5... aiming at 10 only so here we go again... now I will find this SO hard!! Even with my cheating method of grouping as much as I can!!

Color Theory Suite... Took me a while to grow to this one... but I am so glad I made a last minute decision to buy... and a surprise that it is now my Top Suite pick... but simply fabulous for all year round creations.... and I have quite a few cunning plans with those dies... shame that they are likely to go on back order soon.... so if you need these...please order quickly!
