Retiring Lists have been announced

Don't miss any items on your wish list!

Stampin' Up! have just announced their retiring lists for both the 2019-2020 Annual catalogue and the 2020 Spring/Summer catalogue.

This means that any items that do not appear in the new 2020-2021 catalogue are being 'retired' and are now available whilst stocks last. Some of these items are discounted up to 60% from the original price.  If you have a wish-list of items, then I recommend you check them against the retiring list and order them whilst you can.

To check the items retiring, you can click on the image above or HERE.
There are also PDF files available, but they include English, French, German and Dutch sets, so are rather long to scroll through.

Spring/Summer PDF
If you want to check a specific item, please just EMAIL ME and I can confirm for you if it is being carried over or not.  There is also a Spreadsheet file available if you prefer.

 Some helpful hints:

  • Retiring items are only available whilst stocks last - you won't see back orders
  • Bundles (i.e stamps + dies or stamps and punches) from the Annual catalogue are not carried over at the discounted price, though the individual items may be carried over. If you like the bundle order now at a discount.
  • SNAIL in it's current form is retiring. We have a new version available in June. You may stock up on spare refills whilst they last.
  • All the 2018-2020 In Colours are retiring, along with all of the Designer papers.
I will be ordering every few days, depending on demand. You are welcome to email me or phone me with an order. My suggestion is always to order direct from the website, that way you know the item is in stock when you order.  If you click on any of the links above, you will be taken to my shop, look for SHOPPING WITH JENNY MCCORMAC on the top left side of your order screen. Any problems, please call me 01280 840453 or email me HERE.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Spring/Summer Paper shares - a little of everything

See the new 2020 papers on video

When a new catalogue comes out, there are always lots of lovely printed, patterned papers available (also known as DSP - Designer Series Papers).

These paper packs typically come in 12"x12" form, with 12 sheets per pack. A number of my customers have said in the past that they did not necessarily want that amount of paper of any one pack, and so I offer Paper Shares with each catalogue.

Basically I order a complete pack of all the papers, and then cut the stack into 4 equal 6" x 6" packs. It allows you to have a little of all the papers, cut to a manageable size to use and store.

I currently have packs available for the Annual and the Spring/Summer catalogue.

Below are the papers from the Spring/Summer catalogue and are available at £20. The packs consists of 96 sheets of papers. As it's Sale-a-Bration time, you get one of the stacks of papers for FREE! As there are 2 stacks of papers available, you will have a mix of both!

Each pack consists of a quarter of each of the following papers in 6x6” format:

From My Heart*, Parisian Blossoms*, Peaceful Poppies, Birthday Bonanza,
Tropical Oasis, Country Club, Best Dressed PLUS FREE Sale-a-Bration papers. 
Two of these paper packs include stunning foiled* paper.

These shares are offered by be, and not directly through Stampin' Up! and not via online ordering. If you would like to order a pack from my next share, please EMAIL me using this link and I will be more than happy to add you to my next share subscription.  Please allow 2 weeks for the orders to be collated and processed.

You may order more than 1 share at any time. Postage for the shares are £3, regardless of the quantity you order. Below is a video of all the papers included.

Fun with cute meercats at Coffee and Card

Meercat stamp set you can earn for FREE

We had great fun this week, with this meercat stamp set at coffee and card. It was a great opportunity for some different layouts, with just the one stamp set. What do you think?

This was our starter card, just stamping the group of meercats and the cactus, and colouring in with our Stampin' Blends alcohol markers. 

Free meercat stamp set The Gangs All Meer Jemini Crafts

One of the options was to use some masking techniques, and stamp the group of meercats multiple times, to create a crowd of them gathered together.  If you want to see how this was done, you can see a video of the cards on my You Tube channel. Did you know that the collective name for meercats is a 'mob'?  At least this looks like a friendly mob with all their smiling faces.

I brought my Stamparatus to the session, enabling our ladies to make these fun 'in the round' cards, featuring just the meercats, or the meercats and the cactus. I think these would be great for a children's birthday card - I will pop some of these away for my younger nephews for their birthdays later this year. In fact if you purchased the Stamparatus from me, you could get the meercat set for FREE. See the bottom of this post for more information

Here are the colours of the Blends that I used for these cards, but you could substitute any grey/brown/green colours you may have.

I also run 2 session in my home town of Brackley, Northamptonshire, at Hummingbirds Bistro, Market Courtyard in the centre of town.

Fun with Swirly Frames and Pop of Petals for quick and easy cards

Fun with Swirly Frames and Pop and Petals

We had great fun at coffee and cards making these simple stamped desgins using 2 stamp sets from Stampin' Up!

Simple stamped cards with Jenny ftrom Jemini Crafts

For the frames you can see in the background, we used the Swirly Frames stamp set, with the addition of Pop of Petals flower stamps,together with the four petal flower punch.
Pop of Petals

We made two designs - the first based on a square card, and the second using our rectangular note cards and envelopes. You can see both styles below.

We started by stamping the frame shape of choice onto a Whisper White card layer. This can be stamped in your flower colour of choice, or a contrasting colour if preferred.   In my top sample I used Sahara Sand for the circle and the leaves, and Blackberry Bliss for the flower images and the sentiment. 
Here are the images included in the Swirly Frames stamp set

 In the photo below you can see some of the ladies having fun with these designs at our Thursday afternoon session in Hummingbirds Bistro, Brackley.


It's great that there is a matching punch for the 5 flowers (and the butterfly) from the Pop of Petals set. I always recommend marking the bottom of each flower stamp,\to make it easier to align in the punch. You can see how I did this on my Facebook LIVE video and You Tube videos.

The stamp set also has different leaf images, which suit a variety of styles. I think we used all of the leaf images and all of the flower designs between us at our sessions!

After all of my coffee and card sessions, I run a Facebook Live video at 2pm (UK) each Monday, which you can find on my Facebook page and my You Tube channel.
