Three For Thursday : Saying Goodbye

TFT

Did you know that the brand new Stampin’ Up! Catalogue for 2017-2018 is launching on June 1st, with a brand new set of In Colours and more gorgeousness than you can shake a gluestick at? You are going to love this new range it is lush! If you want to sign up to receive an email version of the new catalogue sign up to my mailing list HERE for a copy at midnight on June 1st!

In the meantime, because there are so many gorgeous new ranges we are having to say goodbye to some old favourites. However, every cloud has a silver lining and for the retirement list that comes in the form of some nice discounts! Here are my top three picks from the retirement sale!

1 – In Colour 2016-2018 DSP

The new In Colours launch on June 1st and they are gorgeous. That means that the 2015-2017 In Colors are leaving, and although the 2016-2018 ones are sticking around for a while many of the products are being discontinued and replaced with new ones. A personal favourite of mine which should be a staple in every crafter’s kit is the In Colours DSP pack. It contains 40 sheets of 12 by 12 paper in 2 double sided designs across all 5 in colours : Dapper Denim, Emerald Envy, Flirty Flamingo, Peekaboo Peach & Sweet Sugarplum. The papers are high quality and are acid/lignin free making them ideal for scrapbookers. This retiring paper stack is now 20% off at just £16 – that’s just 40p per sheet!

2 – Cupcakes and Carousels

One of the retiring product suites is Cupcakes & Carousels. Several of the products are discounted right now including the cardstock, papers and embellishments. I’m offering a deal on this suite for those who order direct with me by emailing hello@scarletmooncrafts.co.uk – Buy the 6 by 6 Designer Series Papers, the A4 Cardstock, Stampin’ Write Markers and the Embellishment Kit for £25 including postage. – Offer available while stocks last.

The matching  Carousel Birthday stamp set is also retiring and is available separately.

Three for Thursday: Christmas Comes Early

TFT
Christmas will be upon us before we know it! Every crafter knows that you need to get a jump on all of your Christmas makes if you are going to prepared for the holiday season. It won’t be long before summer is over and our thoughts turn to the Winter holiday season. However, that doesn’t mean that you cannot be prepared in advance! The Stampin’ Up! Clearance rack has some amazing offers right now of Christmas products at unbelievable prices! That’s why this week, Three for Thurday is focusing on those Christmas bargains!

1 – We Have Washi All Wrapped Up!

There are currently four sets of Christmas/Winter themed washi on the clearance rack. The packs contain 5 rolls of 4.6m Washi Tape in 3 different widths. These usually retail at £7.25, but during clearance you can pick up each of the packs for just £2.90 per set! That’s an amazing saving of 60%!

Washi

Choose from the following options:

  • Seasons of Cheer :- Although this is a seasonal design, the Seasons of Cheer washi tape could actually be used all year round as it features stripes, spots and quilted designs in Cherry Cobbler, Hello Honey, Mossy Meadow, Pear Pizzazz, and Soft Sky.
  • Warmth & Cheer – Again, there is no reason this design wouldn’t be used outside of the Holiday season. Only the Christmas tree design is truly seasonal and even then it works as a woodland themed tape. I think Warmth & Cheer is great if you celebrate Yule rather than Christmas. The colours are Basic Black, Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, and  Garden Green.
  • Presents & Pinecones – With its Candy Cane stripes and sprigs of holly, the Presents & Pinecones set is a much more in your face Christmas choice making use of  Cherry Cobbler, Delightful Dijon, Emerald Envy and Mint Macaron
  • Candy Cane Lane – The final choice is Candy Cane Lane, a real red and whisper white set with a candy cane theme!

2 – Pretty Paper Package

If you love the washi tape, then you will also want to look at this bargain Designer Series Paper! The Warmth & Cheer paper pad contains 48 sheets of double sided 6 by 6 inch paper in 12 different designs for the bargain price of only £3.60 instead of the regular price of £9! The colours featured are Basic Black, Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, Delightful Dijon, Garden Green, Whisper White. If you need something bigger to work with, then take a look at the Presents & Pinecones DSP Pack containing 12 sheets of 12 by 12 inch DSP in 6 different double sided designs for just £4.00 (RRP). Designs feature Cherry Cobbler, Delightful Dijon, Early Espresso, Emerald Envy, Mint Macaron, Whisper White.

Three For Thursday: Let’s Hear It For The Boys!

TFT

Welcome back to another Three for Thurdsay post here at Scarlet Moon Crafts. This week I am turning my attention to the boys! I have my teenager’s 17th birthday looming and my husband is about to graduate university – not to mention Father’s day is fast approaching! Have you ever noticed that it can be tough to find gorgeous craft supplies for adult male cards and projects? I am like a little magpie drawn to bright colours and glitter so my stash needs a serious testosterone injection. I have sat down with a cuppa and the Stampin’ Up! catalogue and found some wonderful products for male projects. These are my top three!

3 – Bookcase Builder Stamp Set

This is not necessarily a male orientated set, but I think the Bookcase Builder Stamp Set is a great option if you want to make a card for a male friend or relative. It is ideal for building up a bookcase to replicate his office or man-cave, but it is versatile enough that you can make a card for just about anyone. It is also great for new home or new job cards!

2 – One Wild Ride Stamp Set

These One Wild Ride Stamps are great for making male cards and projects, even if the man in your life is not a biker. You could also use them to document bike shows, trips to the transport museum or even road trips. This is a two step stamp set which means that you can build up the image your way!

1 – Urban Underground Suite

Urban Underground

My top pick for this week is the Urban Underground Suite. Sometimes it is really hard to find a nice ‘male’ or at least gender neutral kit that is not for kids. I think the Urban Underground Suite really hits the nail on the head – if you pardon the pun! The core colours are Basic Black, Basic Grey, Delightful Dijon and Very Vanilla with a touch of silver foil. Although the overriding theme of the set is actually construction and father’s day, the patterns on the paper are geometric and would actually work well for any occasion and any gender. I’ve seen it paired with the Beautiful You Stamp Set for a really feminine card too, so it is really versatile.

In at number 3 this week is the entire Succulent Garden Suite! I am kind of in love with this collection right now! Just look at how well all of the products go together! Start off with the designer series paper, but you are soon going to want the matching ribbon, cardstock, dies and stamps!

2 – Lift Me Up Bundle

3_LiftMeUp

How stunning is this bundle set? I am loving Hot Air Balloons at the moment and I am really into this great stamp and die set. When you purchase them as a bundle in the Lift Me Up set you save 10% on the price when purchased separately too – how cool is that? Now, as an added bonus.. If you buy this bundle and throw in another small item such as an ink pad, you would hit the £45 mark which up until March 31st is going to qualify you for a free item – why not select the coordinating ‘Carried Away’ papers that are only available in this promotion! Contact me today and I can make sure you get your order in before the cut off!
