Gorgeous, isn't it!

No, not my desk..... the NEW 2008-2009 Idea Book and Catalogue! And, it's even more delicious inside! The 2008/2009 IB&C is now available and I have stocks to distribute. Please contact me to arrange delivery of a copy of this 160 page glossy book, filled to the brim with inspiring ideas. The layout is much improved over the 06/07 book, so there are bound to be current things you see in a new light. Plus, there are lots of yummy new stamp sets! The cost is usually $12.95 plus P&H, but you will receive it for FREE if you host a workshop or catalogue party.

There are masses of gorgeous new ribbons in more colours to co-ordinate with our Cardstock and Ink colours, and there is fabulous new pricing on our high quality double sided Designer Series papers - Just $11.95 for 12 sheets! I'm sure you will all love it as much as I do!

It's nearly time...

We're almost out of time to place orders for retiring products from the 2006-2007 Idea Book and Catalogue, and also from the Summer Mini. There is still a little time for a quick order, but they must be with me by 8pm March 31st. So, check the retiring list, and if you were liking Stem Silhouettes in the Summer Mini don't delay! Unfortunately, this elegant and versatile set has NOT made it into the new catalogue, and will never be available again. "All about U" and "AIDA cloth" background are also retiring, although they are not shown on the Retiring List. Don't delay, send your orders by email TODAY! to

Summer is drawing to a close...

Well, I think we can safely say that summer is over, although I am hopeful for a few more lovely warm days! However, there is still a little time before the gorgeous sets and accessories in the SUMMER MINI catalogue disappear.... perhaps forever!
My particular favourite is Carte Postale, great with the co-ordinating Enchante paper range and co-ordinating wheel - the perfect combination for elegant cards. I am also a fan of the Stem Silhouettes set - I have seen so many beautiful cards made, including plenty for the men in our lives, this set is so versatile, and a must have for your collection. The SUMMER MINI ends on March 31st, so contact me today to arrange a workshop -some March dates still available, or to place an order direct.
