Yikes yellow... to Yay!

Last Sunday found me in Peterborough - not a place I would normally spend a weekend, but the venue for our quarterly Stampin' Up! training day...and as always a big part of the day is the swaps we share. This time round we were told the theme was to be 'Yellow'...which meant I spent a full two weeks thinking Yikes...yellow ... rather than making a start on the forty cards I needed to make for the swaps...

 With just three days to go to training day the penny finally my latest order of fabulous (new) goodies arrived and after unpacking all the new things it was less a case of yikes yellow and more a case of Yay!
So I thought I would share a small taster of my swap samples... and in the process provide a teeny weeny sneaky peek at what's coming very soon...

Have you spotted what's new?  I promise you are going to LOVE some of the new products coming your way...

and there will be a fabulous blog hop on 1st May to kickstart the this space as they say...

Free papers

I got my free papers delivered and I chose the Berry Blossoms set  which was featured in the Spring Mini. It matches the Fruit & Flowers stamp set which I love and of course these goodies will not be available after 30th April when the Spring mini ends.

 I like all of the patterned papers of course  but I love the way this particular design really showcases the gorgeous in-colours against the rich chocolate background and so this was the one I grabbed first to make a very simple card.

For this I used the designer series pattern papers free in the current April promotion, the flowers from the fruits and flowers stamp set (shadow stamped for contrast), early espresso and wisteria wonder card stock, perfect polka dots embossing folder in the Big Shot,  and the small oval and word window punches.

Remember the free papers promotion only lasts until the end of the month - don't miss out. Contact me today to learn more or to place your order including any of the limited items in the Spring Mini catalogue. Avoid disappointment and  get these goodies while you can.
