A few of my Favourite Things...

So quite a few of you have been asking me what are my favourite things in the new Spring Summer Catalogue and the Sale A Bration freebies...

So I have pondered, written a list, changed my mind... used some products and changed my mind again... re-written the list... and so now I can share a few... as I am still changing my mind on a few as the creative brainwaves hit me and I think of more ways to use some that weren't in my brain before! And of course my demo friends around the world are all sharing their brainwaves... and I then I will probably change my mind again!!

But for now I am going to put my neck out!! And say these are my Top 5 products in the new catalogue/Sale A Bration promotion... in no particular order...

Just click on the title to go to the Products in the Online Store....

Waterfront...
This was my immediate favourite... and no change of mind with this one.... Just £15... and in photopolymer.. 

I will be doing my first Class in the Mail for this one...  For now... click here to register your interest... 
Release your inner artist! Such a creative set... If you enjoyed Gorgeous Grunge and Work of Art... then this is the one for you...
If you have liked my little scenes over the years...then just buy it! I have spent 15 minutes with it today... and have 4 cards to share already! Love it! So easy! So much fun!

Petal Passion Suite
Again immediate love when first seen... but there again I do love Black & White...
But what I most love about this suite is that you can release your colouring inner self...
And make it whatever colour you fancy... what a great class kit this will be...
And try out loads of colouring techniques and products whilst doing it!!
Even the ribbon can be turned any colour!
And the embellishments are the best ever!
And really lovely embossing folders too... 
And even co-ordinating Memories & More cards too... to make scrapbooking, cards and home decor a breeze.... video of the cards here... 
And a video to show you more of the whole Suite...just click on the arrow...

Epic Celebration...  
Exclusive Sale A Bration promotional item... Yours for free with a £45 order
Well I have an "awesome" teenage boy!! And those "epic" headphones & trainers are never far away...
 So so useful for my own cards! Going to be a keeper... you mark my words...
Apron of Love

Now here is one I did a complete U-turn on...
When I first started papercrafting 15 or so years ago... we did a lot of apron projects at a class I went to... and they weren't what you would call "my style!" Though I have to laugh at myself... as I definitely didn't have a or know "my style" in those days... That came later - thanks to my Stampin' Up! journey...
So my eyes passed by very quickly at first view!!

But now I cannot wait to get creating with it ... as once the ideas came they just kept flooding in... which is code for a very long list to work on already...
And this is a bundle that will work for most occasions/persons... well it will when I have finished with it...

And being published at number 5.... for today! As there are at least 6 products I would put at no. 5 really!! So more on those another day!!!

Myths & Magic Suite

Well this is one that I shouldn't like...

And that I probably won't get to use in a class much... as most of my ladies are past wanting to make cards for younger children...
So if anyone would like to book a private class using it... then please feel free to contact me as I need the excuse to get them out and create as a priority!!!
Or a Class in the Mail would do it!!?
In the meantime I will just carry on and make some blog candy!
Though I have to point out that the Glimmer Paper and Washi Tape in the last 2 pictures are - in my humble opinion - must haves!!

  1. Ohhh same here, the more I look at Apron of Love, the more wee bits I can see coming together - e.g. The rectangle die could be a baking tray, with the half scalloped circle cut twice to and joined to turn it into a doiley or tray cloth, then the two hearts could be cut and layered to look like jam tarts.... I could go on, but it's nice to have a set with dies that jump out at you to brainstorm and get thinking!! :^)
