Top 5 Picks for Mothers Day Gifts

Hi there!

Here are my TOP 5 picks for Mothers Day gifts.

With Mothers Day just over 2 weeks' away, now is the time to hustle.


For the mother who loves to keep lists, keep track of events & birthdays...this is for her!
The 'Big Plans' Planner comes in a kit & can be started any time of year.  And there is a refill kit should mum want to add to her year :)

And if she wants to be extra creative, it introduces her to Washi Tape (may be the start of an obsession) and other sticky diecuts to use either in the planner or wherever else she pleases.  Just keep an eye on the dog...

Find the Big Plans Planner HERE

2.  KITS
Want a no-brainer gift?  I love these!!

Coming all together in a neat box with *everything* needed for all the projects, the 'All Inclusive' Kits are a great go-to for gifts.

Even for the beginner crafter, the kits are terrific.

Priced from $47-$61, there's something for everyone.

The hardest thing you have to do is to choose which one...and then gift wrap it ...or just tie a ribbon around the box!

Here are just a few of the kits on offer:

Wouldn't it be lovely for some neat fairy to just come in and work her magic on your creative corner.  I cannot grant that wish, but this could be the next best thing.

It doesn't matter the type of craft, often there's the challenge of finding a place for everything.
Stampin' Up! have a few options...

For your Ink Pads, Blends, & Ink refills, look to the custom designed 'Storage' by Stampin' Up!

For all Mum's other nick-nacks, trinkets, ribbons, envelopes, 1001 bread tags, etc, 
check out the Clear Storage Cases which come in 3 different sizes.

There's the Full Wide Case  (just like the size of a video case...without the nobby bits inside)

Then there's the ClearMount Stamp Cases....
These are like a typical sized DVD case.

And then there's the 'Half Wide' Stamp Cases, which are half the size of the 'Full Wide'

All 3 sizes come in packs of 4,
and cost between $9-$12.


For the mother who just wants a few moments to herself to express her creativity, I'd highly recommend 3 products that go well together.

The Watercolor Paper, the Watercolor Pencils & Aqua Painters
(US spelling...not my bad)

Mum can sketch, colour & splash some H2O over her dabbles & create a watercolour masterpiece.


For the Mum who has everything....or has so much that you would have no idea where to start when it comes to purchasing some creative gifts....the Gift Certificate!!

This can be made out to any amount & will be posted to you to present to Mum who will rub her hands together with glee as her eyes glaze over thinking about what she'll spend it on!  

So there you have it...

My top 5 Picks...

You're welcome!

P.S Should you not need any of these amazing suggestions, and already have something in mind or want to create a treasure yourself to present her, pop over to my ONLINE STORE to find what you need :) 

The end of the Catalogue is nigh....

The Occasions Catalogue & the Annual Catalogue both end on June 3rd this year.

Stampin' Up! have let us know what is leaving and what is staying.

Among the 'retiring' items are 
the 5 oldest 'In Colours'.

Stock up on any of these products that you like as they tend to sell out quickly.

These and all other outgoing items can be seen HERE on my online store.

Happy Shopping!

Heads up - Big Shot & Trimmer retiring

Hi there!

Just a quick heads up about a couple of Stampin' Up! items which are retiring.  And now only available while stocks last.

If you have a Stampin' Trimmer or have been thinking about a Big Shot, this is for you.

Also, next Monday 15th will see the release of the 'Retiring List' from the current catalogue to make way for the new Catalogue coming in June. 

Keep an eye out for this...and should you want your own free copy of the new Catalogue, please let me know.

News this week:

The Big Shot is retiring from Stampin' Up! shelves.

....while there will be still embossing folders & dies available in the new 2020 Stampin' Up! catalogue, there won't be a die-cutting machine at present.

Keep posted though, for what is to come.

The Stampin' Trimmer is also retiring....and it looks like there won't be any replacement for this item.
Should you have one, be sure to stock up on cutting blades while they are available. 

Pop over to my online store HERE to grab any of these.
