Merry Mice by Stampin’ Up!

Hello! Blog Hop for the Autumn-Winter Catalogue 2016


Welcome to the Hello! Blog Hop for the brand new Autumn/Winter Catalogue! You’ll be hopping around some amazing Stampin’ Up!® Independent Demonstrators blogs, each with an inspirational project, featuring new catalogue products. Currently you’re visiting Tracy May from London, UK. 

Hello there! You can continue hopping by using the next button at the end of this post. Now, let’s scroll down to see what I’ve been making.


I have been playing with the super cute Merry Mice stamp set! I think this is my favourite set from the whole catalogue!

I decided to use this set for my customer gifts from my August monthly online code club!

The box is made using the envelope punch board and crumb cake card stock. The belly band is Candy Cane Lane DSP. And the super cute mouse is stamped, coloured with blender pens and ink and hand cut! I couldn’t resist curling his tail up and over the sentiment!

Aren’t they cute? Everyone should have received theirs by now! I’ve heard back from a few who loved them (and the gift inside of course!).

Spoiler Alert! Monthly Gift Club Thank You Cards and Gifts using Pop of Paradise from Stampin’ Up!

I’ve been having fun making thank you cards and gift bags for April’s Monthly Gift Club members. It’s not really a club and you don’t have to join anything. All you need to do if you want to receive a free gift from me is to order online from me and simply enter the Gift Club Code in the Stampin’ Rewards box when you check out (n.b. only if your order is under £150)! The code for each month is on the side bar of my blog and also at the bottom of every blog post. There’s more information with screen shots of where to enter the code here! I used Pop of Paradise from Stampin’ Up for this month’s cards and matching gift packaging! It’s a new stamp set that will be available from June 1st!

I was inspired by the pictures in the new catalogue (which I can’t share yet) to make the gift bags using the Gift Bag Punch Board and a new Designer Series Paper called Pop of Pink, which is also available from June 1st! I will be popping one of these (or similar) into the post tomorrow morning to everyone who used the code in April! What’s inside??? Not telling…you’ll just have to wait and see!!

If you do shop online with me and would like to receive a gift, then you also need to allow me to contact you! I have had a few online orders recently which have been marked as no contact! This means I won’t be given your name or address and I therefore won’t be able to send you a thank you card and gift even if you have used the online code!

Allow Contact from your demonstrator

Check to make sure you have ticked Yes to allow me to contact you!

I’ve just realised I completely forgot to photograph and post the March Monthly Gift Club Cards and gifts!  Ooops, well I hope these make up for that!

I’ve filmed a video of how to make the card, which I will edit tonight and pop on the blog tomorrow!

In the meantime, if you are happy to shop with me, simply click on the table below and you will be taken to my online shop, don’t forget to enter the code shown below and on the side bar for your free gift. Thanks for your support!

Watercolor Wings from Stampin’ Up! – Code Club Gifts

Today I’m sharing the thank you cards and code club gift packaging, that I made using Watercolor Wings from Stampin’ Up! I made these for all my lovely online customers who placed orders during January using my monthly online Code Club code. I cased the annual catalogue for the card – do you like it?

Every month I post a new code on my blog – it’s at the end of every post as well as on the side bar. Any customers who place an online order through my shop, who add the code to their order, then get a gift the following month (once I close the code at the end of the month).

Add the Monthly Host Code to your order

I use the Stampin’ rewards earned via the code to buy the gifts which will always be current Stampin’ Up! product.

In order to qualify for the gift you not only need to enter the code to your online order, you also need to make sure that you do not check the Yes box to allow contact from your demonstator i.e. Me :-). Unfortunately if you check No, then I am legally not allowed to contact you, and I don’t even know who you are as Stampin’ Up! will not provide me with contact details at all.

Allow Contact from your demonstrator

I really would love to send you lovely thank you cards and gifts so please do remember to use the code when shopping with me – thanks! 🙂
