Catalogues, Classes, Stampin' Up!


It’s come to that time when we start saying Good-Bye to our favourites. The Retiring List is now out. It’s your Last Chance to get them.

I have all the details below. I know I’m sad to be saying Good-Bye to some. But it makes space for other great products to come.

**Firstly,  when you check the list don’t be alarmed at the size of it.  Some items are being reconfigured such as the stamp set cases.  New sets will now come with a printed image on the outside as well as the inside back cover and the stamp sets won’t have images on the clear sheets the stamps are stuck to. 

** Some bundles as in stamps/dies or stamps/punches are listed as retiring but only as a bundle. They may still be available individually in the next catalogue but buying them now as a bundle saves 10%.

See them all in my Store to see all the items shown -> HERE.

These items are all WHILE SUPPLIES LAST. So be quick! Some have sold out already.

Here are just some of my favourites.

Happy Shopping,


cards, Catalogues


I have been sharing projects all this week with the Snowflake Showcase products.  Today while I am in Melbourne for the Stampin’ Up! Onstage event I thought I could squeeze in a little bonus project for you.

I shared a card a few days back that was for any occasion.  I love that these products can be used not just for Christmas and not just to make snowflakes.  So I thought today’s bonus card needed to be another all occasion card.

The Snowfall Thinlits can be used to make some pretty flowers.  I kept the flower simple on this card.  The “snowfall” image was stamped on the Rich Razzleberry card base for some background. It doesn’t have to be snow. 🙂 The paper strip is from the Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper.  The Old Olive card strip was embossed with the Basket Weave Embossing Folder.  I love how this layout turned out.  It was loosely based on a Freshly Made Sketches #310 sketch. 

You still have time to order these products.  BUT – this is a BIG BUT!  They are only available during November AND ONLY WHILE SUPPLIES LAST.

Here they are again and ordering details for you if you are in Australia.  Now my Aussie friends,  I know that being snowflakes it puts you off these as we don’t have a snowy, wintry Christmas BUT look what else you can make with them.

Here is all the details.

cards, Christmas, Stampin' Up!


Of all the new stamps I recently ordered from the Holiday Catalogue I pulled out this set first; Christmas in the Making.  I was looking at doing some watercolouring so I thought I would have a go with it.  I must say in advance I am not great at watercolouring.  But as I tell my daughter you can only get better at something if you keep trying. 🙂  Anyway, apologies in advance.

This is the first card I made with one of the images in the set.

The image was stamped with StazOn on Thick Whisper White card. I coloured the lady with the Watercolor Pencils and blended it with the Aquapainter.  I will show you a close-up of the skirt.  I coloured that with the Clear Wink Of Stella brush.  It is a little hard to see in the photo.  It gives it perhaps the look of Organza fabric, very soft and shimmery.  That was the effect I was going for anyway.  I went over the ornament too with the Wink of Stella to give it a sparkle.

I used the Olive side of the Merry Little Christmas DSP pack (p 12). I don’t think this paper is shown so well in the catalogue but it has some really lovely prints and I think will be versatile for occasions other than Christmas.  Have a look at this below. It comes in 12″ x 12″ sheets.

To finish the card off wrap around some of the fine Real Red Solid Ribbon.  For the sentiment I stamped it on a strip of Whisper White and angled the ends.  It needed something so I added some Silver Glimmer paper.

This is the stamp set, Christmas in the Making if you had missed it in the catalogue. (p 16)

W $44   C $31

Tomorrow I will show you cards with the other 2 images.




Convention, Stampin' Up!


I have just returned home from the Gold Coast following the South Pacific Convention.  Oh! such fun!!! It’s always nice to spend time with friends and finally meeting up with your online friends. This is THE BEST!!!! If you have been to a Stampin’ Up! Convention you would know what I mean. If you haven’t you would have still experienced this if you have been to a stamp camp or even having a crafty time together with friends.  It’s the sharing of ideas, the friendship, the care of each other, the laughs, the fun …….

Anyway, I have taken LOTS of photos of cards and Projects but it will take some time to go through AND to photograph my swaps so bear with me there.  I will get to them this week and then I might just share some with you.  🙂

Now we did perhaps get our hands on the new Stampin’ Up! Catalogue???

OK, maybe a little excited!! Sharing the catalogue with one of my team, Sarah.


There are lots of GREAT new products and once again Stampin’ Up! have done an excellent job on their co-ordination! You are going to want to see it. Now you will be able to view it online on June 2nd BUT if you are someone who likes to take their catalogue to bed and do some quiet reading, and you like to mark those post it notes right through them, Yes You!!! then you are going to want your own copy aren’t you!!

So if you don’t have your own Demonstrator AND you live in Australia then drop me a comment and I will get one in the post to you in the next couple of weeks.  Stock up on your post-it notes 😉 I am ordering the catalogues THIS WEEK!!

Now before I go I will give you a little sneak of the upcoming Incolors – because I am so kind 🙂 🙂

colour boxes

This was one of the displays at Convention.  They are such lovely colours.  From top left we have Mint Macaron, Watermelon Wonder, Cucumber Crush.  On the bottom from the left is Delightful Dijon and Tip Top Taupe. I am sure you will see more of these over the next few weeks.  I don’t know what my favourite is yet.  Maybe Mint Macaron or Watermelon Wonder.  What do you think???

OK, stay tuned for more 🙂


Stampin' Up!


Of course any time is a great time to join Stampin’ Up! but there are extra bonuses when you join during Sale-A-Bration. I’ve mentioned these extra bonuses AND I’ve mentioned all the reasons why it would be great for you to join.  Not sure you can read this post HERE. 

Are you still thinking about it??

Why not come to an Information Session this Saturday 21st Feb. 2pm in my studio East Corrimal. There is no obligation but it might give you some answers.

If you have had any thoughts about it this will be the place to have those questions asked. If you can’t come then ask me for an information pack. (only Australian residents).

What are you waiting for??

I would love to welcome new members to my growing team.  I am here to help you on your way whether you are a hobby demonstrator or you are going to share with others.  To help you get started I give you a Welcome gift and during February it’s an extra special one just for you.  Ask me about it.
