Retiring products

Happy Friday to you all !

I've had a few days away this week, which was lovely, but got home to find a wet patch on our bedroom ceiling. This was particularly alarming as we suffered a severe leak while on holiday last year and ended up having to have some major repairs done. Thankfully , this time we caught it quickly and hopefully it will dry out without any lasting damage.  I think I'm jinxed lol !

Today's card features more sadly retiring products, in particular the So Succulent stamps and dies. I had big plans for these but to be honest time has run away with me and I haven't made any of the things I'd planned. The butterflies however, I have more than had my money's worth and have used loads across the last few years


Maybe I'll play with the succulents this weekend - hopefully no DIY will be required !

Enjoy the weekend

Nailed It

Morning all,

As promised I'm back with something creative today , although I can't take any credit for it as it was CASED from a card I saw on the swaps board in Amsterdam. It immediately took my eye as being such a clever idea but I didn't swap this time so I have no details of who made the original. If it was you, or you know the details, please let me know so that I can give credit.


Isn't it cute ? The magnifying glass handle is made from the hammer from the Nailed It set - proves its not just for the boys ! I've used some window sheet for the glass and raised it with the very useful foam strips. A big thank you to the original designer and if you want this set you need to hurry as it's very low in stock at time of writing.

Back on Friday with another design in these colours

CentreStage

Hi all, hope you all had a good Easter and didn't eat too much chocolate !

I'm back today with some photos from the CentreStage evening which took place after the first day of the conference. This event is for all demonstrators who hold the title of Silver Elite or above and I was very privileged to attend again , especially after the figures were shared that out of 46,664 demonstrators globally only 1475 were eligible to attend !
Stampin' Up always spoil us too, it was held at a 5* hotel, with lovely food , live music and gifts too.
Each place setting had a beautiful tulip...


And the centre of each table and more tulips and tealights....


And this was the menu....

And the food...





Back with something creative next time

More from Amsterdam

Hi all,

I'm back with some more photos from Amsterdam. There wasn't much time for sightseeing but I did manage a trip into the city centre and would love to return again one day to see more.




I was amazed by how many bikes there were and we had a few misses and plenty of laughs !

Next time I will tell you more about the CentreStage event that I was lucky enough to attend.

Enjoy the Easter weekend

Amsterdam

Evening all,

Sorry I'm a bit late blogging today but I have had classes and then my lovely ladies have kept me busy inputting their choices from the Retirement List. Some have bagged some fab bargains but there has been a few disappointments too as things are selling out quickly - don't leave it too late !

I thought I would share with you today a couple of photos from my recent trip to Amsterdam for Onstage Live. I travelled with my lovely friend and downline, Angie and we arrived the day before the event started.

Our hotel was situated on the junction where 5 canals met and this was the view from our room....



And after we'd checked in we ventured not the city centre for a little look round ....and some refreshment too !


More pictures next time

Retirement List

Hi all, 

I'm back from a fantastic time at OnStage Live in Amsterdam and I will tell you more about that next time, but for now I need to let you know that the Retirement list has gone live this evening so go take a look at www.juliewade.stampinup.net

Sadly, some of my favourites are leaving and I'm sure will sell out very soon so if you see something you like it's probably advisable to order it straight away from my online store. There are some bargains to be had too so go and have a look now.

I'll leave you now with a picture of my stunning Tulips from Amsterdam....just couldn't resist !
