Wonderful, brilliant, fabulous you!

The stamp set is called Picture Perfect Birthday and I just LOVE the little gift bow image!! It's a total steal at £15!

I also wanted to let you know about a Stampers 6 club I was hoping to set up at the same time that the new catalogue launches, you can see details here.

Stampers 6 club!

Hi all, 

I was hoping to start a Stampin' Up! "Stampers 6" club with the launch of the new catalogue and wanted to see if anyone would like to join.

So here are some details and if you like the sound of it drop me an email at 

Would you like to receive lots of Stampin’ Up! products and have the opportunity to be a hostess so that you can benefit from the Stampin' Rewards? By joining my “Stampers 6” club you will receive all the benefits of being a hostess without having to hold a party in your home. The Stampin'  Rewards can be spent on exclusive Hostess products or on anything you like from the catalogue.

Here’s how it works:

For this “virtual” club I need 6 people to join (I will find these people but if you have a friend who may be interested then pass on this information).  

  • The club runs for 6 months
  • Each month every member agrees to place a £25 minimum order (excluding p&p) which will give a total qualifying workshop order of at least £150 which will give a minimum of £15 in Stampin' Rewards
  • I'll email at the beginning of the month to remind you to place your order.
  • Each month a different member of the club will get the opportunity to be the virtual  Hostess and choose her free Stampin’ Up! goodies- I will let you know which month you'll be hosting when you sign up so that you can decide if you'd like to spend a bit more that month to get a larger amount back in rewards.
  • Payment for your order can be made by Cash, PayPal or Bank Transfer.
  • Each member will also receive a FREE copy of the current Stampin’ Up! catalogue - and any other promotional leaflets that come out until Nov 2018.
  • Each member will receive a small free gift from me each moth too
  • There will be a £2.95 charge for posting any orders if you are not local.
This is an ideal way to get a few new craft items every month AND the benefits of Stampin'  Rewards for a relatively small amount.

This is how a started buying SU products, each month I used to buy a stamp or die set, and ink pad and then maybe some embellishments or adhesives. 

I would like to start this club in June and it would run through until November. 

If you have any questions please drop me an email, I look forward to hearing from you.

Something sticky!


I've had a few questions lately about glue/adhesive, so I thought I'd do a post on the subject!

Don’t forget to use the current hostess code when shopping online DGUHWXT4

Wet adhesive:

These are quite traditional styles of glue, the main drawbacks are that they can get messy and if you use too much they'll make paper wrinkle. However, because they don't dry immediately you have a bit of "wiggle room" and you'll often be able to re-position something that you've placed incorrectly (If you're quick). 

Fine tip adhesive, great for precision application of small/narrow items, really strong when dried BUT can get your fingers a bit messy and if you don't look after the tip by replacing the lid etc. it can get bunged up!

Tombow multi-purpose glue- as the name suggests this is a great all-rounder. Creates a strong, clear bond when dried for paper, card or embellishments. Come with a fine tip and wider spreader at the other end, but again it can get messy if you use too much. 

Dry adhesive:

These will provide immediate adhesion with no drying time, but that also means you often can't re-position something once it is stuck down. They are really quick, less messy etc.

Snail adhesive: this is a runner style, you hold the devise and "run" it along the area you want to glue and it can be re-filled. 
Tear and tape- this is essentially double-sided tape but its great as you can simply tear off the amount you want, rather than getting your scissors all sticky trying to cut it. 

Adhesive sheets- these are ideally used when die cutting, its a larger sheet of double sided adhesive and can turn die cuts or small piece of paper/card into stickers. 

Glue dots- as the name suggests these are tiny little dots of adhesive that come on a roll, you simply peel them off and then they are a double-sided adhesive. These are best for small emblssihmenst like buttons or bows  (they are also a tiny bit 3D)
3D adhesive:

These adhesives will give your project a bit of dimension as they add a layer of foam which is sandwiched between adhesive, essentially double sided adhesive foam.

Dimensionals- little adhesive foam hexagonal shapes that come in two sizes mini and original , these are great for popping behind later of card or individual embellishments.

Foam adhesive strips- just like dimensionals except in longer strips, ideal for larger pieces of card/paper or making shaker cards!

SO, the big questions what do I use? I always have a glue runner like the small to hand, this is how I stick layers of paper and card. I also love adhesive foam in order to add Simenon to my layers. When I;m doing something that requires a really strong adhesive a will use a wet glue, for example making boxes etc. this is when I'll go to Tombow and for filly little embellishments it's got to be the fine tipped glue. 

What would I recommend to beginners?Well I'd say have one type of glue from each category to get you started, then you can pick your favourites overtime!

If you'd like to try some dimensionals please drop me an email and I'd be happy to send you a pack to try for only £3.75 paid vis Paypal (so that's free postage).

I hope that helps, if you have any further questions please don't hesitate to get in touch.
