January’s Coffee and a Card makes

As a completely disorganised person, I have decided to try to get my blog in order this year! Yes, I know we are already into February, but that just proves my point as to how dis organised I am!

Instead of attempting to show you all on a weekly basis what we have made at Coffee and a Card groups, I am going to bump several weeks together, thus writing one post for several cards. So, Yes, it will be a bit longer, but I will NOT go into so much detail.

Below is a list of products used, if you want more detail, then please drop me a message using the contact me tab above

Hooray for a New Year

Not only can we put the last year behind us and make plans for whats to come, be they new year resolutions, holiday plans, weddings, house moves….we also have the Stampin’Up mini catalogue and Sale-a-bration catalogue to look forward to!

They are both available right now… contact me right now to get one heading your way!

After a hectic Christmas, today was the start of Coffee and a Card for 2020 and we started the year with products from both the mini catalogue and also free products from the sale-a-bration set.

As i said, I have had quite a busy time, so the two cards we made were ‘cased’ from ideas on pinterest. The first by ‘thecraftyscouter.com’, and the second by ‘Lynn Dunn -stamptastic designs.com’

Brand new Paper trimmer

I know several of you have had the old paper trimmer and over the past few months, there have been quality issues with the blades…so bad in fact that Stampin’ Up! discontinued the blades and trimmer.

Well now they have released a brand new trimmer. I have had mine for a month now, and I must say, I love it!! It cuts very cleanly, it still has the option to score and it will cut paper and card upto 17inches or 43cm.

So far i’m on my original blade and it still cuts beautifully.

The grid lines that run the length of the trimmer make lining up your paper a doddle! and no more removable track to fill with fluff!

This is available to order NOW… contact me to get yours for just £23

(Replacement blades will not be available until January 2020)
