Up to 60% off Last Chance Products

Published by under cards | Apr 09 2024

The new annual catalogue is not too far away – it starts on May 1st which is just around the corner.

But before we get too excited we have a chance to grab the last of our favourites from the retiring Annual Catalogue AND current Mini Catalogue.

Not all of the retiring products are discounted, but many are. You can browse them easily in the Last Chance category in the online store, favourite items you might get by clicking on the heart icon, and check through everything before you finalise the cart. I know how much you’re all loving the new online shop… it’s easier than ever! But of course, you can contact me anytime and I’ll help you with any orders.

Some things to look out for:

  • Vellum cardstock is retiring, along with some of the smaller clear acrylic blocks
  • Some items like cardstock, liquid glue, envelopes and clear cutting plates will be going up in price by a small amount (like everything in life these days)
  • Thick Vanilla cardstock is going away, but we’ll still have the regular Vanilla
  • Some items are temporary unavailable, like the Zinnia’s stamp set and White cardstock, but these will come back
  • In the online store you can filter by items that are running low in stock or even what has already sold out – there’s a handy ‘filter’ section on the left when looking at the Last Chance category on a computer browser.

Have fun picking up a few bargains! Remember that if you shop this month you will receive the latest monthly Ideas Tutorial Bundle, which I send out every month to customers who have shopped with me during that month. The April tutorial is all on fancy folds!

Also, if you’re an existing customer, keep an eye out for your new Annual Catalogue – it should be arriving any day now, in fact I’ve just started hearing that they are trickling in to the capital cities now.

Happy stamping,

April IDEAS: Fun Fold Cards

Published by under cards | Apr 04 2024

This month the IDEAS Design Team brings you another fantastic bundle of inspirational projects – the April focus is on one of our favourite themes: Fancy Folds!

The collage above is a sneak peek of the projects the Design Team have contributed this month.

My project is a double-layer flap fold card with a ‘floating’ sentiment… thanks to Window Sheets. I used the Encircled in Nature bundle (stamps and dies) which are one of the fabulous Online Exclusives that are currently available (check them all out here).

This is a card with a ‘surprise’ because when you open up the top layer there is another layer to lift before you get to the greeting. Something fun for your recipient!

To get your hands on this file of tutorials, including the projects shown here, simply place a $50+ order of Stampin’ Up! products with me during the month of April 2024. This can be done through my online store, or by contacting me by email, by Facebook or phone. It’s also available for separate purchase and is provided to my team members for free in our team forum and also to my stamp club members. Once you have received the tutorials, please remember they are for your personal use only, so that means you can’t distribute any printed or electronic copies of these bundles.
CONTACT ME to order your tutorials.

March IDEAS: Zinnias Inch Block Cards

Published by under cards | Mar 07 2024

Here we are in March already, and a new month brings another fantastic bundle of inspirational projects from the Ideas design team.

This month we are focusing on using up scraps in simply stunning ways. I don’t know about you, but I always seem to have leftover pieces of paper that are just too pretty to throw away – especially long strips of patterned paper. So that’s what I decided to focus on for my project this month.

The collage above is a sneak peek of the projects the Design Team have contributed this month.

My projects this month feature the brand new Zinnia range of products – part of the latest huge range of Online Exclusives that are now available (check them all out here). This suite includes stamps, dies, patterned paper and even a cute pack of adhesive-backed sequins that perfectly coordinate in colour with the patterned paper.

The instructions include how to line up those squares of papers with perfect results every time! And let’s face it, that’s by far the hardest part! I’ve discovered a very handy trick, and after testing it out many times I can tell you it’s a huge timesaver with accurate results every time.

To get your hands on this file of tutorials, including the projects shown here, simply place a $50+ order of Stampin’ Up! products with me during the month of March 2024. This can be done through my online store, or by contacting me by email, by Facebook or phone. It’s also available for separate purchase and is provided to my team members for free in our team forum and also to my stamp club members. Once you have received the tutorials, please remember they are for your personal use only, so that means you can’t distribute any printed or electronic copies of these bundles.

February is here with a new month of inspirational projects from the Ideas design team.

This month we are focusing on different suites offered by Stampin’ Up!. Suites are more than a bundle. They often include coordinating paper, embellishments and ribbon or trim.

The collage above is a sneak peek of the projects the Design Team have contributed this month.

My projects this month feature the Nature’s Sweetness suite of products. Did you know that the stamp images in the Lovely & Sweet stamp set are of the cacao pods and flowers (chocolate!), flat-leafed vanilla and also almonds. No wonder this set is called Lovely & Sweet.

To get your hands on this file of tutorials, including the projects shown here, simply place a $50+ order of Stampin’ Up! products with me during the month of February 2024.

IDEAS: Softly Sophisticated Sale-a-bration

Published by under cards | Jan 04 2024

The new year is here and so is a brand new Mini Catalogue and Sale-a-bration brochure! And from today here in Australia they are both live. (I’ll post more about this later today).

Sale-a-bration is one of our favourite events on the Stampin’ Up! calendar.

The IDEAS design team is kicking off 2024 with a a focus on the new Sale-a-bration products which you can choose for free with a qualifying purchase during January and February 2024.

The collage above is a sneak peek of the projects the Design Team have contributed this month.

My projects this month feature the Softly Sophisticated stamp set and embossing folder combo. The stamp set is actually a 2-step stamp set, with the stems on one stamp and the flowers on another.

And as for the embossing folder, it can be used to create both embossed and debased images with both looking amazing! The square pillow box shown below and the Bubble Bath pink panel on the card shows both ways.

To get your hands on this file of tutorials, including the projects shown here, simply place a $50+ order of Stampin’ Up! products with me during the month of January 2024. This can be done through my online store, or by contacting me by email, by Facebook or phone. It’s also available for separate purchase and is provided to my team members for free in our team forum and also to my stamp club members.
