It's Sale-a-bration time !

Good morning and Happy New Year !!!

I love Christmas and all the festivities but I also like the 'fresh start ' feel of the New Year - and that includes the new Stampin' Up! Spring/Summer catalogue and Sale-a-bration freebies !!!

Have you had a look yet ? If not pop over to my online store www.juliewade.stampinup.net and you can browse through an online catalogue ( and spend your Christmas money lol) very easily. If you would prefer a paper copy, and you don't already have a demonstrator please let me know and I'll put one in the post to you. You can't beat having the real thing to flick through !

Obviously, the new goodies are the theme of this month's Jems Blog Hop and I've used a few of my favourites.....

One of the Sale-a-bration freebies is a set of 12x12 papers to colour. Adult colouring is very popular at the moment and it's so relaxing so between Christmas and New Year I spent a lovely cosy afternoon colouring and then used  my efforts to make a few cards.  Also you don't need to colour every little bit, just stop when you've had enough - but be warned it is addictive lol !

I cut a strip of paper approx 2 inches wide and got out my NEW watercolour pencils - luckily Santa didn't notice the seal on them had been opened before they got to him 😉. These pencils are only£14.95 for a pack of 13 and I'm so excited to be able to colour in proper SU colours...




And another fab feature of these pencils is that you can use them with the blender pens so you don't even need any water.

So what did I make with my coloured strip ? ...... As the song goes 'these are a few of my favourite things ' from the new catalogue .....


Pop back on Monday and I will give you more info on the products used - yes, my New Years resolution is to try to blog more often !

Enjoy the rest of the Hop x
