Limited Edition Stamp Set with FREE gift

Published by under specials

  January 3 - 21, 2012. Valentine's gift with purchase

From January 3 – 21 purchase the limited edition My Little Valentine stamp set for $17.95 (plus p/h) and get the Sealed With Love Simply Sent kit absolutely free! That's a $15.95 value for FREE.



My Little Valentine stamp set



"Sealed With Love" Simply Sent Kit – makes 10 note cards/envelopes


Little Valentines

The stamps are the perfect complement to the Simply Sent kit, but are also great on their own. Here we've added them to simple 7cm x 7cm mini cards. Colours are from this year's new In Color range (including Summer Starfruit, Primrose Petals, Raspberry Ripple & Midnight Muse), and the oh so lovely Flowering Flourishes stamp set. 





Layering Tip: I {Heart} You stamp 

1.Punch tag from Jewellery Tag punch in coordinating cardstock. We used Raspberry Ripple.


2. Stamp I {Heart} You greeting, and punch using the small ticket on the Ticket Duo punch.



3. Layer sentiment ticket over jewellery tag shape. Add bakers twine and hang from card. To stop it moving around too much add a Dimensional or glue dot to tag.






!! STOP PRESS: Breaking news…. Talking Tags are HERE in Australia!



 Love your smart phone? Scan the Talking Tags and record or listen to a personalised message. Great to add inside your homemade cards.

 Click HERE for more info (you'll have to scroll down that page a little), then contact me to place an order for the brand new Talking Tags – only $12.95 for 10 tags!

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

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.
