Everyone loves this BOGO Sale Day and it is on again for all my retired stamps, paper, Punches and Big Shot items. And I have lots!!
WHAT IS BOGO? Buy One Get One Free!
For the total you spend on my retired products you choose the equivalent value for FREE of brand new products from the 2018 Catalogue. (NB: shipping and handling not included). Recent retired catalogue items are listed at close to catalogue price. Past years items have been reduced.
This is just some of the stamps I have.
SO WHEN IS IT ON?
Drop in any time to my studio in East Corrimal, Wollongong (address given on request).
Saturday 7th July 2pm-4pm
Sunday 8th July 2pm-3pm.
Cash only. Bring a shopping bag for your new loved items.
WHY NOT SELL YOUR UNLOVED ITEMS TOO?
If you have stamps or other craft items you want to clear out (and you are local) then add them to my sale. (*These are not included in the BOGO). Drop them to me before the event, add your prices to them. Any unsold items are returned to you after with the cash for sold items.
I look forward to seeing you then. Help me clean these out because they need to go.
With so many wonderful new products in this catalogue I thought I would focus today for Wednesday’s WOW! on a very popular bundle. This is the Rooted In Nature bundle. Have you seen it yet? I think it is one that will rival the long lasting Lovely As A Tree stamp set.
The stamp set has a number of different trees and leaves and it also has some lovely sentiments. You get 16 stamps all up. The matching dies cut out most of the trees and leaves. In addition there are a couple of leaf dies that will emboss the leaves. Here is the bundle below.
Here are a couple of projects made by Stampin’ Up! artists using this bundle. You can see the diversity of projects with it. Not just for the masculine cards but suitable for anyone. I think this will be great for Christmas cards too. What do you reckon??
Do you want to see it in action? Check the video below. (If you receive these updates by email be sure to go directly to the blog post by clicking on the blog title above so that you will be sure to see it).
This bundle is available now in store -> HERE. Please use the Host Code: FRS6ZZ6G ($126.75 clear mount – you get a lot in this bundle).
OR you can contact me directly to order. Australian residents only.
Thanks for stopping by,
During this month we focus so much on the retiring products and what is leaving the catalogue that we forget what products are staying but won’t be available as bundles. Did you know that you can save 10% by buying them as a Bundle now rather than decide in the new catalogue that you want them.
Let’s look at a couple of them.
My favourite bundle has to be the Colorful Seasons Bundle. I have used it a lot.
These Z-Fold cards are still a very popular post on my blog. I had matching gift bags to go with them.
You can see that post -> HERE.
This card was inspired by Patty Bennett that we made at my Catalogue Launch last year.
See the post -> HERE.
This card below I made just last week for my class last weekend. It was a very popular card in the lovely retiring Sweet Sugarplum colour. It was CASED from Leanne on Pinterest. You can see the original card -> HERE.
What about the fantastic bundle Daisy Delight. With a matching punch to the stamp set you can create some very quick cards with this Bundle.
Make it a fun Flap Fold. The original post is -> HERE.
Or a nice sunshine-y card like the one below.The original post is -> HERE.
There are a number of other retiring bundles you can see in the image right at the top of the post including the Coffee Cafe Bundle, Happy Birthday Gorgeous Bundle, Hold on to Hope Bundle and Label Me Pretty Bundle just to name a few.
Do you like these? Are they on your Wish List? Then maybe you should grab them now before June 1st to save 10%.
See them in store -> HERE You can shop there or contact me directly. If shopping online please use the Host Code: FRS6ZZ6G

YES! It’s that time. The 2018 Stampin’ Up! Catalogue starts on June 1st. There is SO much gorgeousness inside. There really is! I would love you to see it and have your own copy. Yes, you will be able to view it online BUT there is nothing like flicking through the pages AND you can’t stick post-it notes on the computer screen right!!. 😉

With a new catalogue very soon I don’t often like to share projects with new products quite yet. You know, there are still so many lovely products that we have in our current catalogue to use. BUT, well I had to make this card – and share it with you right now. It’s just such a cute set I couldn’t help myself.
This new set is the Animal Outing set. So darn cute! And it is nice to see some Aussie animals. So these animals had to take a selfie. 🙂
I stamped out the images and then coloured them with the Watercolor Pencils. For the sky (which I think could have been a little darker on looking at it now), I lightly brushed over a clear block with the Aquapainter to wet it, then coloured on the block with the Pacific Point pencil. Then picked up the colour with the Aquapainter and washed over the background. I have to say these were the second images I coloured. For the first ones I coloured the images then the background with the Pacific Point pencil and lightly and washed over it. I wasn’t happy with how streaky it looked. So I redid the whole image. For the second time I coloured the sky first before the animals so I didn’t waste all that time … 🙂
Just a tip too when colouring: Lightly colour your images first with your chosen colour and lightly brush over with the Aquapainter. Leave it to dry and then go over parts of the image with the pencil adding highlights. It is much more effective. Also, Shimmery White card is the best for watercolouring I think. Watercolor Paper can be used but it is a lot more textured.
From another piece of card (9cm x 10cm) I cut a square from the centre using I think the 3rd largest square Framelits from the Layering Squares Framelits. I adhered the coloured piece behind it. On a card mat ( I used Pumpkin Pie on one and Old Olive on the other) I embossed those pieces with the Layering Leaves Embossing Folder. Tie around some Linen Thread and adhere this to your card base.
OK, I will get back to some of the awesome current products we have – and they are retiring very soon.
Hope your weekend is going great and you are having time to create.

You have probably seen the new release Sale-A-Bration items especially the Blooming Basket Bundle. I have just received this bundle so I was interested to see what can be done with it. I thought I would focus on this bundle for Wednesday’s WOW! today.
I came across this video from Stampin’ Up! that highlights this set and shows some gorgeous ways to colour it. I will share the cards featured in it further below.
Isn’t this colouring gorgeous???
How do you feel about cutting around the basket? Just a tip in cutting the handle: If you snip the handle down near the flowers on one side it is much easier to cut inside the handle area. Then when you adhere it down you can tuck the handle back behind the handle and no one will even know. Saves so much aggravation. 🙂
How clever is this idea in the card below? Snip the flowers and leaves off the basket and add them to the card in a different way. Gorgeous!!!
Now I am excited to play with this bundle. Stay tuned to see what I get to do.
You can grab this bundle FREE as a Level 2 Sale-A-Bration choice. Which means for orders from $180 AUS you can pick up the stamp set and the Basket Weave Dynamic Embossing Folder. Do you still need to stock up on card and ink? Head to my store -> HERE, shop away and then remember to select your Sale-A-Bration choice.
