A Retirement Update….Excitement….and The Next Big Thing!




I cannot believe that we are already half way through September!  Mind it has been a very busy month so far and only going to get busier but more about that in a minute. WHATS GOING ON WITH RETIREMENT PRODUCTS LORRAINE?  I hear you ask, well good that you did because we are running out of stuff rapidly! I am popping the link HERE for you to go directly to the Retirement list. But here are a couple of things I am really sad to see go:

Spiral Border Punch, Baby Blossoms, Springtime Vintage DSP

Firstly we have the versatile and extremely useful Spiral Border Punch which I have used to cover the, also retiring, On Board journal. I use this punch for loads of things including covering books for my son for school! Next are the lovely Baby Blossoms stamp set which is retiring when the mini leaves us at the end of September too! and the Spring TIme Vintage paper. More versatile products which can be dressed down for a very vintage feel or dressed up for a much more modern but slightly retro effect.

Bella Toile

I only found this stamp after being on Jenny Moors blog – this is a CASE of one of her lovely cards. I fell in love with this immediately and can still see so many uses for it so am very sorry to see Bella Toile departing. If you want these products you need to get in touch with me pretty fast as they will only be available for another 11 days! After that they will NEVER BE AVAILABLE AGAIN!  so don’t be disappointed, get in touch now on stampdelicious@gmail.com and place your order before it is too late!

Now I have to tell you, I am pretty excited! This coming weekend I am going into Glasgow to spend the whole weekend – from Friday night until Sunday tea time – with a group of lovely girls from across the whole of Scotland – The Tartan Stampers! We are going for a meal on Friday night then spending the whole of Saturday and Sunday crafting, stamping and chatting!!! And generally having a great time! I cannot wait. I will be with a group of very talented and lovely people, we will be sharing our tips and tricks, I suspect there will be chocolate passed around! and I will hopefully have loads of brilliant makes to show you next week.  Is this your cup of tea? Wish it was you too?  Well next time it could be! I have a space for one person to join my team – The Stamp Delicious Gals – and next time you too could be having a terrific crafting weekend! Drop me an email and we can chat more about how you could be earning a little extra pocket money for your self whilst doing something you love (Let’s face it, you wouldn’t be reading this if you didn’t love crafting and stamping, now would you?).

The Technique Tornado Days have been a tremendous amount of fun and the girls who have attended have asked for more. Who am I to turn them down? Heavens! I have had loads of fun getting the techniques together and teaching them – this last weekend we got down and dirty with shaving foam, baby wipes and loads of paper tissues! Not quite sure what will top that but I will need to come up with something pretty fast as the next Technique Tornado Day looks set for Saturday 8th October with a possible follow up – depending on demand – the following week of the 15th October, they will be at the Campanile Hotel again – great venue, loads of car parking and a FREE Bus service from Braehead Bus Station too! What more could we want? Wanna Come? thought you might – head on up to the top of the page there and get your place booked! FIRST COME FIRST SERVED!  I have limited places so if you want to come and your friend want to come too then get your places booked NOW! or you could end up missing out!

On top of this – Our Christmas Stamp a Stack is filling up rapidly – I can only take around twelve people for this! Again at the Campanile, it is on Saturday 12th November, 10.00 am – 4.30pm and costs £25.00. We have some lovely makes for you : will be making five cards x 4 = 20 cards using some of the lovely NEW products that are coming on 1st October and a brilliant 3d Christmas decoration to break to day up! You can book your place at the top of the page – again FIRST COME FIRST SERVED! I know you don’t want to miss out so book your place today!

So girls, until next time don’t forget to stamp your place in the world! xxx


MIA….and something’s to share

Apologies to begin with. I am afraid I managed to pick up a really nasty cold which settled in my throat giving me laryngitis and now my chest. I have had six days of feeling particularly horrid! So please accept my apologies for being Missing In Action. I suspect a dose of antibiotics is now on the cards.

So what do I need to share? well lots actually. Lets look at the Retirement list. The Retirement List can be accessed by clicking HERE. PLEASE NOTE – there are quite a few things that are no longer available. So if there is something that you are thinking of buying but thought you would wait – please don’t – you might very well be disappointed! Send me your list of items and I will get that order placed for you as quickly as I can. Include a telephone number so I can call you for your payment details.

The new Ideas Book and Catalogue will be available from 1st October and will be viewable right here on this blog from then too. However, if you are in my Stamp Clubs or my Ribbon share your brand new Ideas Book and Catalogue will be on its way to you in the post if you haven’t received it already.  Don’t want to wait? Want one of your very own? Well you can purchase one direct from me. Just hit the link over there on the right hand side and I will get one out to you as quickly as I can. You can begin your wish list and then come 1st October you can share your list with me. You might also want to consider being in one of the Stamp Clubs so that when it is your turn to be hostess you can take advantage of the amazing and wonderful new Stamp sets available to Hostesses all for FREE! Want to know more? Drop me an email and I will get back to you.

Okay, something to share.

Vintage Vogue

This was a card that I made when my crafting pals came round last week. This is made with Vintage Vogue – a favourite stamp set of mine and one that I have used lots – it also features French Foliage – another favourite of mine and one that is from the mini which goes off sale at the end of this month. The colours used are Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake and Baja Breeze, I also used my current favourite tool: my Distressing tools. The card is finished with some pearls but I haven’t placed a sentiment on it yet as I want to save it until I need it.

Serene Snowflakes

This is a card we are using for Technique Tornado Day. It is made using the Shaving Foam technique and I used a couple of new colours that are coming: Wisteria Wonder and Pool Party as well as another favourite of mine Pacific Point. The card stock is Pacific Point and embossed with White Craft and finished with a few rhinestones.  I also finished the card inside by embossing the edges too.

Serene Snowflakes

And finally – Technique Tornado Day!!! Yippee! this is coming up on 17th September. We have had lots of fun with these days so far and I think this one will be no different. We will be working towards a finished project and this time it is not a card but it will feature any techniques that you want to use and have learned so far. Want to join us?  Use the button over there on the right and book your place – you are welcome to join us!

Right Ho! need to go complete some stuff now so will ask you to remember to stamp your place in the world! xxx  PS…forgot to mention – coming 1st October  – Frequent Stamper Miles – Want to know more? Want to know how it benefits YOU? Email me now! xxx
