Look What's Just Arrived....

......our latest Autumn/Winter Catalogue for 2014.
As always, it's full of seasonal goodness in a variety of styles to suit everyone.
You can view it online by clicking on the picture above.
Copies have been winging their way to my customers. Have you got your copy? If you prefer a paper copy then do contact me: lesleylendon@gmail.com

Possibly Your Last Chance!

You may remember at the end of last winter, Stampin' Up! decided to keep some of our seasonal products available when the rest of the Autumn/Winter catalogue retired. This list can be viewed in the lefthand side bar. Many customers have been purchasing items from this Holiday Carryover List because they love the products on there just as much as we demos do!
It states on the website that the items on this list will be available until 27th August or whilst supplies last.
Hmm, well today is August 27th and I fear we may be waving goodbye to the list today. So, if you want any of them you will need to order NOW! TODAY!
I've copied and pasted some of the list below but click on the link to the left (in the sidebar) for clear images, details, and the rest of the list.

Soft & Pretty, Bright & Summery

A simple, pretty card to share. This could be suitable for a few occasions. Crumb Cake card, trusty old Everything Eleanor stamp set and the tiny flower punch from the new Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack (honestly, 3 mini punches for £15.50, a bargain!). The flowers are punched from vellum and topped with a pearl embellishment. Greeting from Four You stamp set. Oh yes, ink is Blushing Bride.
A fun, summery card yet to remind us, when the weather turns, of some of the glorious days we've had this year.  I do like this colour combo of Melon Mambo, Basic Black and Whisper White mounted onto a base card in new Mossy Meadow.
Greeting is from another set released last month - Work of Art.

Contacting Me – Please Read

Good afternoon to you!
I want to leave this tiny post this afternoon for those of you who have recently requested my newsletter via my Stampin' Up! website,
Unfortunately, unless you leave me your contact details, I am unable to add you to the list of newsletter recipients as I have no email to send the newsletter to.
A lovely lady requested my newsletter last week via the site, which is hosted by Stampin' Up! The system does not record the email you are searching from and this leaves me with no way to contact you. I am, therefore, hoping that you will read this post and request again, supplying your email address.
Alternatively, you may email direct to lesleylendon@gmail.com.
Many thanks for reading - I hope to hear from you soon!

Smart & Grungy

Morning everyone!
A quick, smart, Stamp Camp card CASED, with kind permission from Jason Loucks. Love this combination of Sahara Sand, Blackberry Bliss and Hello Honey. Stamps are Starburst Sayings, cut using the matching dies. DSP is the Moonlight Mat Stack - approx 6" x 4", a steal at £6.25 - also features paper in Lost Lagoon too!
A different style, bit more grunge - background is made using the Dictionary stamp, banners are from Sea Street and the ship from the Traveller stamp set. Both Sea Street and Traveller are new sets featured in our annual catalogue which was released last month. 'Tied' togther with this thicker twine in Baked Brown Sugar - also available in 4 other colours.
Hope you've enjoyed today's post!

More from Stamp Camp

It seems longer than just over a week since I last posted. Been a busy bee - swaps and projects to prep and make, a weekend scrap retreat, these are now all behind me but I've a play day this coming weekend. Busy,busy.
Let's kick off with a card. Made using the Amazing Birthday stamp set, spiral edge punch, new Lost Lagoon In Colour and Moonlight DSP stack.
The next card was a straight CASE, with kind permission from Eimear Carville. You know that saying 'Why reinvent the wheel'? Well, I'd recently seen a few cards that I just loved, and hoped my crafters would like too, so I got permission to CASE them and have NO shame in doing so!
The stamping has an ombre effect using the graduated colours of Wisteria Wonder, Perfect Plum and lush, new Blackberry Bliss. The star stamps are from one of our new Project Life sets, the greeting from the Bravo set.
I've more to share with you but crafting is now calling so, enjoy the rest of your day. Thanks for stopping by and, if you're interested in any of our products or would like to see a catalogue, please feel free to contact me - Lesley Lendon at lesleylendon@gmail.com or call 07725 217695.

Wow! 1st August already, hadn't realised I'd been AWOL for so long - sorry!
Let's kick of with our August promotion, then a little card from my recent Stamp Camp to finish up.

If you're not but would like a copy the please contact me - Lesley at  lesleylendon@gmail.com or 07725 217695.

Last saturday I held my Stamp camp. Ladies met together to make 15 cards each. Most of the stamps used were newly released in our annual catalogue only last month. All the cards were different and I'll be stopping by here to post them. I'm going to leave you with one today. Most of the cards are my own design, a couple are CASED, with permission from the originator, simply because I loved the card they produced. Today we'll start with one of mine.


This card came about due to the fact that the brand new Flower Patch stamp set from the new annual catalogue was sooo popular that I was still awaiting delivery and only had the matching Flower Fair dies. As you can see, I used one of the die to make random cuts into a piece of Crisp Cantaloupe cardstock, drew around the edges of the negative images with a chalk pen - you could also use a gel marker or white pencil - and then mounted to cardstock onto toning DSP (Lullaby). Trimmed with new Hello Honey ribbon, since that colour is also featured on the DSP, and then mounted onto my base card. I might, finally, be warming to crisp cantaloupe. But that lush Hello Honey is already a favourite!
So, what do you think? Little bit different?
Thanks for stopping by, do visit again soon for some more stamp camp cards.
