August is shaping up to be an exciting month!!!

Hi there Stampers

Well it is August already and boy this year is just flying by!  It will be Christmas before we all know it :)

August is looking like one exciting month too as, not only does the new Holiday Catalogue start on August 28 but also Stampin' Up! have a great Promotion with the Big Shot.  If you don't already have a Big Shot and you have been "umming" and "ahhhing" about getting one then now is the time to jump right in and order one here.

If you're anything like me, you absolutely love when BIG opportunities come your way. And because I know the Big Shot is a big deal,  SU is offering a  Big Shot opportunity that lasts for the entire month of August! 

When you buy a Big Shot  anytime in August you will receive a choice of one of five free stamp set/Framelits bundles below! That's up to a $100 value!!  Woohoo!!!

OR   if you already have a Big Shot (Lucky You :)  you can still purchase these designated bundles at an amazing 15% off! This is one deal you won't want to miss-only available from 1-31 August-as these bundles are one-time only exclusives.

 Another exciting happening in August is all the wonderful SU colours of the Blendabilities are now available.  Check them all out here

I have had a bit of a play around with them and I am not usually a person to rush into the colouring in!!!  but I am finding these Blendabilities to be very user friendly and if I can colour in with them then anybody can :)  Here is a card I made for a friend's birthday recently using the the Blended Bloom stamp that I received free at Convention this year.  I just loooove this stamp. I stamped it randomly on a piece of Calypso Coral cardstock with the Memento Tuxedo Black Ink Pad and layered that on black cardstock.  I then stamped another Blended Bloom on Whisper White cardstock,  coloured it in and cut it out with my trusty paper snips.  I then mounted it up on a couple of stampin' dimensionals to make it "pop"!  The greeting is from "Blooming with Kindness" and I added a couple of little flowers using the "Itty Bitty Shapes" Punch Pack which has retired unfortunately but you can use the new "Itty Bitty Accents" Punch Pack instead. Also a bit of Thick Baker's Twine to finish it off.
