It is a very exciting day here at Little Lane Crafts!  The brand new shiny Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue launched this morning.  I had my colour-coded wishlist all ready and my order has been placed and now I'm waiting (im)patiently for it to arrive.  I really can't wait!


You can request a hard copy of the new catalogue by simply sending me an email with your name and postal address.  All personal information is stored securely.  I never pass anyone's details to third parties because it's the law and I'm too busy papercrafting anyway!  If you can't wait to have the catalogue in your hands, you can click on the cover image in the right-hand sidebar to view the electronic version right now.  Get those wishlists at the ready!

When placing an order, don't forget to use the June Host Code.  This is for orders under £150 and means you'll receive an extra special something from me too.  If your order exceeds £150, you will earn Stampin' Rewards and be able to choose products for free!  Woo!  To start shopping now, simply click on the online store link.  


Be sure to check back tomorrow when I will reveal my Top 10 new products!  You won't want to miss these.

Unfortunately, I can't share any of the images with you yet but if you would like your own chance to view the new catalogue right now, become a demonstrator and join my team.  You will also be able to pre-order a special selection of products from a brand new suite that won't be released until May.  And, by signing up you will also receive a discount on every order.  Don't delay - join today!

Retiring List
The next piece of news is about the Retiring List.  As the current Annual Catalogue comes to an end on 31 May, Stampin' Up! have released the list of Last Chance Products which will be leaving us.  These products are only available while stocks last or until 31 May.  If there is anything still on your wishlist, grab it now before it's gone.  


Colour Revamp
Have you heard that Stampin' Up! are also introducing a Colour Revamp?  This means that some colours are retiring, some are returning and some brand new colours are joining the Stampin' Up! family.  

The retiring colours are:  
Always Artichoke
Chocolate Chip
Elegant Eggplant
Island Indigo
Marina Mist
Perfect Plum
Pink Pirouette
Rose Red
Soft Sky
Tangerine Tango
Tempting Turquoise
Wild Wasabi
Wisteria Wonder

The 2016-18 In-Colors are also retiring - Dapper Denim, Emerald Envy, Peekaboo Peach and Sweet Sugarplum.  If you realised Flirty Flamingo was missing from that list that's because this fab colour is actually returning.  


So, I really did have lots of news!  If you have any questions, please drop me an email.  As always, you can request a paper copy of the catalogue to be sent directly to you from the end of May.  Just include your name and postal address in an email to be sure of some happy mail!  You can do this straight away too.  

Happy crafting,

Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop - That Little Bit Extra...

Hi Crafters,

Welcome to the latest Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop.  This month we are showcasing the extras in the catalogues - ribbon, sequins, wooden embellishments and all the other wonderful things that five that extra special something to your projects.


I've gone all out bling!  I'm showcasing Stampin' Up! glitter and sequins.  I used the double sided sticky sheets to make my own glitter-filled die cuts.  


I created a card blank from Whisper White cardstock and then layered up using Stampin' Dimensionals.  I cut the flowers out by running through the Big Shot four times and then laying the die-cuts back into the space.  I backed with double sided sticky sheets and then added silver, gold and Dazzling Diamonds glitter into the open sticky areas, pressing down to seal.  I cut three of the Happy Birthday Thinlits and layered on top using liquid glue.  My finishing touch was to add the three silver sequins.

I hope you are enjoying our hop that little bit extra this month!  To keep hopping, head over to Courtenay's fabulous creation using the next arrow below.  If you get lost there is a list of all those participating at the end of this post.



Happy crafting,
Rachel x

Petal Palette Collage

Hi Crafters,

I'm back with my favourite all time Stampin' Up! stamp set!  You guessed it - Petal Palette.  There is just so much versatility in this set and I've not even scratched the surface yet!
Today's card is one that I kept thinking about making and finally I've sat down and got creative.  I looks slightly like what I had in mind but they rarely turn out exactly as I've pictured.



I created a card blank in Fresh Fig cardstock and used Crumb Cake for my background which was stamped in Archival Basic Black using the bird image from the Petal Palette stamp set.  I ran this through the Ruffled Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder which creates a 3D effect.  Next I layered up my focal elements - half a doily inked in Fresh Fig, a punch Decorative Ribbon Border in Fresh Fig and two of the largest circles from the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits Dies set.  I stamped the bird again in Fresh Fig and fussy cut using small scissors and then layered onto a Very Vanilla scalloped circle.  

Dont' forget to use the Host Code on the right if you are placing an order under £150.  You will receive an extra special something from me too!  If you have any questions, you can reach me by email or on Facebook or Instagram.

Happy crafting,
Rachel x
