Summer Mini and December Frenzy Deals

Whoa!  I've got stacks to tell you about, since it's been so long since I was able to make a proper post.

Probably the most important is the launch of the Stampin' Up! Summer Mini catalogue, that runs from December 1st to March 31st.  It's crammed with lots of interesting goodies, some of which have been long awaited!

 I lusted after the "Simply Adorned" range as soon as I saw it introduced in the US catty a year or two back.  It's a range of customisable jewellery, chains in bracelet and necklace lengths, hanging baubles and pearls, the Trinket Keys and Crowns co-ordinate with it, and there are small and large charm lockets as well. This pic shows my first effort, and uses the matching "Charming" stamp set, also from the Summer Mini. The images are nicely sized for the inside of the lockets, the larger styles have beautiful bevelled glass on the front side, and there's flat glass on the back side for a photo or alternate image.  I've woven seam binding ribbon through the chain, and tied on short lengths of Chantilly and Victoria lace trims.  The colours used in the locket panel are Soft Suede, River Rock, Early Espresso etc.  The base layer is a little rectangle of the pretty Soft Suede and Gold printed paper from the Mocha Morning Specialty paper.  On the flat back side, I used another piece of this paper, a Soft Suede flocked with black.  mmmm, yum! 

Want to have a peek inside the catalogue?  Just click on the cover image above.  If you'd like to receive a paper copy in the post, please use this link to join my mailing list, and pop a note in the comments box about the mini catalogue.
