Brisbane’s Stampin’ Up! Heartfelt Event

Published by under cards

I was lucky enough to visit Brisbane on the weekend for the fun of Stampin' Up!'s 'Heartfelt Event'.

It was a great day of new ideas, fabulous presentations and 'wow' projects. Catching up with team members and other demo friends topped off a perfect day. We saw many different projects to those on show at the Melbourne Heartfelt Event, and it was just as fabulous.

Here are some of my favourite happy snaps from the display boards for your enjoyment.

Mystery Hostess: Everyone Wins

Published by under specials

Have you seen the fabulous ‘Ink-redible’ special this month?

Stampin’ Up! are giving away a FREE Collection of 10 large Ink Pads (a nearly $80 value) with a qualifying order. Wow – This is great news for hostesses!

But what if you have a modest order and aren’t able to host a workshop this month?

Well, I have GREAT news… You could get those FREE ink pads by joining in our Mystery Hostess group order!


[wp_graphic id=”feature15″ type=”feature” align=”center” title=”” width=”450px”]

  • Major Prize: Collection of 10 ink pads ($79.95 value)
  • 2nd Prize: Free product to the value of $50
  • 3rd Prize: Free product to the value of $30
  • 4th Prize: Free product to the value of $20
  • 5th Prize: Half-price item of your choice
  • 6th Prize: Snail Adhesive
  • 7th Prize: Gold or Silver Stampin’ Dazzle Marker
  • 8th Prize: Gold or Silver Stampin’ Dazzle Marker
  • 9th Prize: Gold or Silver Stampin’ Dazzle Marker
  • 10th Prize: Gold or Silver Stampin’ Dazzle Marker


Note: Prizes 1st – 5th are the hostess benefits shared out, and 6th – 10th are participation gifts from me!


How does it work?

Step 1.
Ten people each place an order of at least $65 from any current Stampin’ Up! catalogue.

You could even take advantage of the Ornament Keepsakes promotion, stock up on green and red cardstock, or snag that lovely Christmas stamp set you’ve been eyeing off!

Step 2.

The total order will be over $650 which means it will qualify for the Free Ink Pads in this month’s ‘Ink-redible’ Promotion, as well as all the usual fabulous benefits.

Step 3.

Names will be randomly drawn on November 20, with prizes allocated to each participant (by sharing the Hostess Benefits) as described in the box above.

Step 4.
We will then submit the order, with orders and prizes available for collection before the end of November.



Please note: The order will be sent to my house for you to collect. If you are not local to me you will need to pay postage from Creswick, VIC to your address. Orders will be submitted on November 20th, or earlier if all spots are filled. Payment due at time of order. 


Happy stamping,
