A little treat...

It's November and things are still going crazy in my garden. The roses and the honeysuckle are in bloom and the lilac tree has buds on it.

No doubt the next frost will get them, but in honour of their craziness, and the fact that I'm a little tired of making Christmas things at the moment (despite have tons still left to do) I thought I would share something new with you.

One of the benefits of going to the recent OnStage Live event in Brussels was getting our hands on things early. There were Prize Patrols (everyone won something), all attendee giveaways plus of course our bag that also had a new stamp set in it.

We were also able to take part in four product spotlights. These involved being told about and shown a suite of products and then also getting our hands on them to try them out. Another big bonus was that we were also able to take part in a pre-order of the pre-order. The actual pre-order for demonstrators does not start until 3 Dec but I already have a selection of goodies from it (doing a happy dance). Did you know that Stampin' Up! allow you to order from the pre-order as part of your starter kit? That's something most definitely worth knowing if you are thinking of joining my team.

There is so much to love in the 2016 Spring/Summer catalogue, and as tempting as it is to share lots of it with you now I am going to restrain myself and just let you have a peek at one of them today. The photo above is a bit of a hint. It involves a suite that has some fabulous new designer series paper, a stamp set and a huge set of fabulous dies (plus a few other bits and pieces that I don't have as yet).

This is the Botanical Gardens spotlight project. I did all the stamping and die cutting in Brussels but finished it off once I got home, by putting it all together (there are some dimensionals involved) and then mounting it onto a piece of Cajun Craze Cardstock.

I have a team meeting this evening and will be sharing more of the projects and news from OnStage Live with everyone who is coming. I am also slowing filling up my project board with ideas and samples to share in January at the kick-off classes for the New Year and the new catalogue.

There will be more sneak peeks over the coming weeks so please check back when you are able.
