New Mini is here!

The new Mini catalogue goes live today! I’ve been clutching my sticky mitts around one of these beauties since Convention, desperate to show off what’s inside and now the day has come at last... and I realise that I don’t have anything photographed. Doh! It’s all sitting here on my desk, waiting for some daylight, and I keep forgetting. Will try to remedy this in the next couple of days. You can view it by clicking on the picture on the right. And here are some of my favourite products:

Simply Adorned
What’s this? A jewellery line?  How does that fit with stamping? Oh, just you wait and see! This is a fabulous line of jewellery which allows you to incorporate rubber stamping into wearable art! I particularly love the charms; glass lockets into which you can insert miniature pieces of artwork. Best of all, you can remove the inserts and replace them again and again, so you can have a really versatile piece of jewellery which can be adapted for any outfit or occasion.

Spice Cake suite
I cheated with this one – by choosing the whole suite, I get to pick five products as a top pick! I’ll hold my hands up and admit that I was a little unsure of this suite to begin with but one of my team won lots of these products and Convention and made a stack of cards to show us at our last meeting, which is when I began to fall in love with the designs. Luckily, I’d earned a fabulous bundle from Stampin’ Up!® for free, so could play around to my heart’s content. You’ll love the paisley stamps, the matching Designer Series Paper and fabric, the luxurious velvet ribbon and the amazing Kirstie Allsopp-style huge buttons!

Blossom Party die
I don’t have this in my possession yet but I’m confident that this die will be fabulous. At £16.50, it’s within the reach of more people than the Fun Flowers die, so is sure to be a winner!

New hostess set
It’s really lovely, too – it’s called Swirls & Curls Verses and is very pretty. Swirly words with little images intertwined.  Only available to hostesses, of course, so book your party now!

New punches!
There are three fabulous new punches in the Mini, and I’m sure you’ll love them all.

  1. Postage Stamp: I have wanted a postage stamp punch for ages  – yay! Best of all, there’s a stamp set to go with it... and another one on its way soon (ssshhh!!).
  2. Cupcake Builder Punch: This will be really popular as you can punch out cupcakes, candles, sprinkles... very fun indeed! And yes, there’s a stamp set to go with it!
  3. 2 3/8” Scallop Circle: How often have you wished there was a large scallop circle to go with the 1 ¾” circle punch? Well, now there is – and I have it and it’s fab! Yes, yes, there’s a stamp to go with it, too!
