October Special Offers from SU! (and there's a few!)

Good morning to you today,
Stampin' up! have started the new month with a bang again! They have a couple of fab offers so I'll start with the time sensitive one first for you.
*Edit to say: The first offer is finished now so I've deleted it to make current offers easier to see*
Pick a Paper Pack!
Join SU! as a demo today and get a pack of regular DSP (not speciality or stacks) FREE every month for 6 months. 
That could be your classes for your first 6 months sorted for you if you want to be a career demo or a whole heap of cards ready to go if you are joining as a hobby demo. Either way it's a winner, winner, chicken dinner ;-)
That's of course on top of the the other perks like discount on goods and early ordering on new catalogues etc. 
See here for a few more details or contact me for a chat.
This offer runs 'till the 24th October 2014. 

Good Greetings is still available 'till the 31st October.
Host a party and reach at least £200 in sales and you will get this fab stamp set and get this stamp set in Wood or Clear mount for FREE!! I'm loving it and using it tons in my Christmas Class which I will be showcasing here in the next couple of weeks.
 Contact me to arrange a date for me to come and share SU! with you and your friends and family. I cover most of the South of England and can do day times or evenings. 

You can of course also spend £200 in my shop; all on your own or with a few friends, it's entirely up to you, I won't judge ;-)
*This Offer ends 31st October*

And finally don't forget that the Weekly Deals are also still running HERE too! 
As the title suggests they are changed weekly so you need to check regularly and complete your order before Tuesday night at 11pm (GMT) or Midnight (CET)
Information overload, much? I know, it's a lot to take in so I'll make this post a sticky one so you can find all the links easily 'till the end of the month but please feel free to email me with any questions you might have regarding any of these offers! Please don't forget that they all run out at different times though as you don't want to miss out on the things you want ;-)

Travelling Gifts for on the way to Stampin' Up! Convention in Brussels 2014

Good morning!
Today I'm going to have a day in my craft room designing for my Frame Class in December. I'm excited to play with the Under the Tree DSP and make it into a festive 3d frame. I promised the ladies plenty of ideas to CASE when they come so I have a lot to do!
BTW: I'll be updating you with my progress on Instagram and Facebook if you want to follow me and find out what I'm up to as the day goes on ;-)
I'm going to skip a day today about Brussels (kinda) and share with you the gifts I made for the three ladies I travelled with on the Eurostar. I wanted to make a little gift pack of things we might need (and some things we might just want of course) during our time away and came up with these..

 Inside were wet wipes, hand sanitiser, tissues, gum, mints, hand cream, chocolate plus
this cute nail file I found! I think that was all??
I made these little tags with the Tag Topper Punch and the Under the Tree DSP. This paper is perfect for tags as it's more like card and it's that yummy Kraft colour too ;-)
I used the Spiral Flower Die to make the flower and sat it on a punched Pansy as they look a little bare sat on their own. The sentiment is from Chalk Talk and was stamped in Versamark then heat embossed with white embossing powder
And I topped the bag with a lovely Island Indigo chevron ribbon bow. 
Yep, I do love my bows ;-)
 All together again to finish 
OK. I'm off to play, ahem, work!
Thanks for looking today, I hope you liked it!
Stampin' hugs,

Thursday night and Friday morning in Brussels for Stampin' Up! Convention 2014

Good morning!
Oh, I have sooooo many photos it's hard to know which ones to show you without it being boring for you... so I'm going to just go for it! But, with as many photos as I have do you know that I didn't take any at the Eurostar or that many of people either, they are mostly views! Doh!
I do have a couple of pics of the lovely gift Sharon gave us on the trip on said Eurostar though, it was a gorgeous box and inside was a cute mini coffee cup filled with Hershey kisses. Yum!
Thanks again Sharon x
OK, next is the hotel room where we stayed at the Hotel Du Grand Sablon. It was a fabulous hotel, really central, comfy bed, great views. I can highly recommend this for a stay in Brussels! 
Jules and I shared again this year but we actually had our own beds this time! Just right next to each other, good job we're friends ;-)
This was the view from our bedroom window. The weather was fabulous while we were there too so that was a big bonus! This was the first evening and it was a bit cloudy but still warm. The days after this were hot and sunny :-)
This was the view as we walked towards the convention centre. Stunning.
Next to the convention centre was a fabulous garden square

and the convention centre, so cleverly designed into the hill side. It looks small but it really wasn't!
We registered and collected out bags and stamps on the Thursday night, unfortunately I didn't qualify for the Silver 2 recetion this year but we had a fantastic evening wondering round Brussels bumping into lots of SU! demos and good friends too ;-) A nice, blurry sefie for you here ;-)
Now, being in Belgium you would expect to find chocolate, and plenty of it too. Which was certainly the case with gorgeous chocolate shops everywhere and there was but one thing I never thought I'd find was chocolate covered olives! Nope, I think I'll pass on that one, thanks anyway ;-)
Look at these bowls of meringues! If I had thought I could get one home in one piece I would have tried! They were much bigger IRL than they look here, trust me :-)
So, on Friday morning we got up all ready for a very early 8am start until we were half way through breakfast and realised that it was 8.30 start Friday (8am on Saturday!) Thanks Sharon ;-) ha ha ha! Breakfast was stunning though, this was just the bread selection!
In the convention centre we got to see lots of demonstrations and talks by lots of senior SU! people including the always beautiful Shelli

always packed with great tips and ideas
The ever funny and engaging Pam Morgan. Love her glitter sharing!!
Here she is showing us the "must have" Many Merry Boxes kit, mines on its way!! 
 and then we get to see the projects close up and personal afterwards too
 and finally for todays post a few pictures of the fabulous Donna Grififth
 Donna's projects included using the fabulous Curvy Keepsakes die! 
Everyone's favourite in this Autumn/Winter catalogue
 and some watercolouring and embossing on the big screen and then on a board for a closer look, love this design! I think it will be in a class here very soon!


So, if you are still awake, thanks so much for looking today :-)
I'll be back with more convention highlights tomorrow and if you think you would like to join the SU! family (and the fun!) then remember the FREE DSP offer ends tomorrow. 
I am also offering my All Attendee Giveaway prize of Four Feathers stamps and matching framelits to the next person who joins SU! with me too! See my Facebook page too.
Back soon!!
Stampin' Hugs,
