Final Week of the 2008-2009 Idea Book & Catalogue

Published by under IB&C changeover | Mar 25 2009

My neighbour (and stamp club member) Jodie made this gorgeous card using the retiring Touch Of Nature stamp set and For A Friend hostess set.  

 Touch Of Nature

She was inspired from the previous year’s Idea Book & Catalogue, and it reminded me of how much value the books are even after they have officially retired. They really are a great resource that will keep inspiring for years to come.  I love this card!

Excitement is building as the new IB&C is about to launch, but you still have time to snap up a retiring item or two before they are gone for good. Don’t forget that the Simply Sent cardmaking kits are 25% off, as are the rubons, chipboard and even most of the 12"x12" Designer Series Papers. Click here for current availabilities.

Can’t help but share another sneak peek from a yet-to-be-released-in-Australia stamp set, Fresh Cuts, and the new In Color called Kiwi Kiss. This was a card gone wrong that ended up totally different to the one I planned. It was pretty funny…. at one stage it was even in the recycling bin but I couldn’t bear to throw away one of the new Fresh Cuts Note Cards so it was reborn into this card…

Until next time…

Sneak Peek

Published by under cards | Mar 19 2009

The release of the new catalogue is just around the corner, so I couldn’t resist teasing you with some new stamps and In Colours LOL. Having a sneak peek at the catalogue and access to new goodies is definitely a greak perk of being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator!!

(Above) Fresh Cuts stamp set and Fresh Cut Notes die-cut cards. Here I’ve used the new Pink Pirouette and Riding Hood Red.

This one is from an Aussie stamp set called Bloom Away. Hubby’s family are all in the UK so this set will come in handy for us. There are 3 native flowers in the set: waratah, gum blossoms and banksia. It’s Mothers Day in the UK this Sunday so I sent off the banksia card I made but forgot to take a photo.

Well that’s it for today. I better go… I think my new stamps are calling me.

Stitches & Craft Show Update

Published by under general chat | Mar 18 2009

Well here I am back online after 6 days without internet access at home. Ughhh! We recluctantly had to change our service provider (technical reasons) which is apparently NOT an easy process for some!
Anyway, apart from having to catch up on 800+ emails, I am back on track and am happy to be blogging again – starting with an update on our Stitches & Craft Show adventure.
 
We had a great few days… I met loads of wonderful people, caught up with demonstrator-friends I hadn’t seen for a while and made some new ones too!
Here is a shot of the whole team after 5 days of spreading the word about our wonderful company Stampin’ Up!®
 
The Stitches & Craft Show Team
 
 
We have (from left) Lisa, Naomi, Leanne, Susan, Karen, Gail, Coral, Yvonne, Janine, Tina, me and Ramona. If you visited our stand chances are you chatted to one of us. There are still lots of people who are learning about Stampin’ Up! for the first time so it’s always fun to see their eyes light up and get excited. We know the feeling!
 
It’s been an exciting week for another reason. I received my demonstrator preorder of BRAND NEW stamp sets that will be making their debut in the 2009-2010 Idea Book & Catalogue. WooHoooo!!!! They are soooo gorgeous. I have made a couple of cards (no surprise there ) so will be back tomorrow to share them with you.
 
It’s good to be back,
 
 
Enjoy these photos from our gorgeous Sample Wall at the Stitches & Craft Show…

Stitches & Craft Show

Published by under general chat | Mar 11 2009

 

 

The Melbourne Stitches & Craft Show is on again! The show runs until this Sunday 15th of March from its new home at the Melbourne Showgrounds.

Our group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators will once again have a stand, so make sure you stop by and say hello. I’ll be there (on and off) on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

If you were a visitor to the Stitches & Craft Show, and this is your first visit to my blog then WELCOME! I hope you enjoyed your day at the show and learning about Stampin’ Up!, perhaps for the first time. Don’t forget to click on the tabs at the top of this post to discover more about classes and workshops, current specials, and how to get a discount on all your craft supplies. 

Bookmark this site and check back often as I keep you up to date on the latest news & specials from Stampin’ Up!, as well as share projects and ideas to keep those creative juices flowing.

Today’s shared project at the top of this post is a stunning card that a fellow team member and very creative lady sent me – Maureen Crameri (Camperdown). I love the unique fold on this card… hmmm I think this will have to be one of our stamp club projects in coming months.  This piccy might give you a better idea of how it opens…

How cute is that!!! Thanks Maureen for letting me share this on my blog.

We have a fantastic group of talented demonstrators from all over the state (and beyond!) covering Bendigo, Ballarat, Melbourne, Creswick, Daylesford, Kyneton, Deniliquin, Barham, Kerang, Colac, Berwick,  Camperdown, Maryborough… you name it!  Reminds me of the song "I’ve been everywhere man". LOL. If you are looking to make contact with a local demonstrator, or want to find out a little more about Stampin’ Up! just contact me.

Happy stamping!

CLICK HERE for retiring items that have sold out (or close to it) . The list is too long to paste here! 

A quick hi to all the lovely ladies who joined in the class on Friday night. We made a number of projects using all retiring sets. It was a great night so thanks again for coming!

Oh and a quick reminder that I’m taking bookings for the VERY EXCITING next class where you’ll get to try out some NEW goodies from the 2009-2010 Idea Book & Catalogue (yet to be released). It’s on Sunday 5th April. $15,  which includes a FREE copy of the new catalogue!!!

I’ve had a little peek at some of the new rubbah we’ll be getting next month and all I can say is yuuuummmmyyyyy. (Have I mentioned I love little birds??)

Cheers,

Going…going….

Published by under cards,specials | Mar 04 2009

 It’s been fun playing with my "about to retire" stamp sets, as I prepare for the Retirement Party class this Friday. The class is fully booked out, and promises to be a fun and very productive night!

This card uses Bodacious Bouquet (oh I’m going to miss this one) and paper from the Winter Brights Simply Scrappin kit.

I can’t believe how fast some of the retiring items are selling out! Here is today’s updated list as to what is no longer available.
