Published by under catalogue

The Annual Catalogue is here: 2014-2015 Stampin' Up! Catalogue (Australia)


It’s here! It’s new catalogue week and our brand new Stampin’ Up! Catalogue is live.

Want to check it out?


How to view the Stampin’ Up! Catalogue (Australia)

Choose the best option for you:


1. View each of the products in the online store (great if you are looking for something in particular – just search it! Add to your shopping cart as you go along for convenient home delivery)


2. You can download the entire catalogue (large file) and the supplies list here


So exciting!

There are plenty of highlights in this new catalogue. Here are some of my faves:

Project Life. The awesome memory keeping system that coordinates with our colour range.

Blendabilities. Fabulous colouring tools in the form of alcohol markers.

Photopolymer stamps. See-through stamps in alphabets and greetings for perfect and easy alignment.

New ‘In Colors’. Rich and versatile, perfect for generational stamping (i.e. stamping off to get lighter shades which gives you a range of colours from each ink pad).

Bundle & Save deals. New bundles designed to save you money.

New Project Samples. Project ideas for every skill level, and You Can Make It features.

The Index. Yes, it’s back. Open the back page of your printed catalogue for a fabulous index, plus a separate picture index of the greeting stamp set.

Hmmm, it looks like I have a lot of favourites again this year.  As in previous years, if you’ve ordered from me in the past year I’ll happily pop a catalogue in the post for you. Or you can order one for only $10 including delivery. Just contact me via email or phone and we can sort out the details.


Happy stamping,

Sale-a-bration & NEW Products!

Published by under catalogue

kidsWelcome back! Today is the last day of school holidays, and the end of a busy summer of camping, surfing, swimming, melting in the 45 C degree heat, playing with the kids, and getting a new puppy…. Phew. Definitely time to get back to normality and, well, I can’t wait to get back to business too!


We’re kicking it off with THREE HUGE announcements today.


1. NEW PRODUCT: Texture Boutique

A brand new embossing machine is available from today. It’s smaller than the Big Shot, and its sole job is to emboss your beautiful projects! No die cutting through this one. And it’s only $49.95!

Check out the video below to see it in action….



Yes it’s that time of year, our annual Sale-a-bration event. But this time it’s even better because you get free products with every $90 purchase (not $100, like last year!). It’s a great time to join up or host a party too. You can download the SAB catalogue HERE.




And if Sale-a-bration isn’t exciting enough, we also have a new 40-page catalogue to inspire, delight and shop from!

Layered Labels CASE

Published by under cards,catalogue,team

Layered Labels Congratulations card

Each month the demonstrators in our team are invited to participate in swaps. We make cards based on a theme and send them to each other. It’s great fun getting happy mail in the letterbox – not that I need much of an excuse to make cards for my buddies – so this is something I really look forward to each month. 🙂

This month the theme was ‘CASEing the Catalogue‘. I chose the Congratulations card on page 103 of the Annual Catalogue, featuring the Layered Labels stamp set.

Australian Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue 2012-2013

A quick check of the Annual Catalogue Supplies Guide told me what was used in the sample and away I went.

Layered Labels swaps p103 CASE of Annual Catalogue

Layered Labels card p103 Annual Stampin’ Up! catalogue: Layered Labels Stamp Set; Whisper White and Wisteria Wonder Card Stock; Subtles Designer Series Paper Stack; Bashful Blue, More Mustard, and Wisteria Wonder Classic Stampin’ Pads; Rose Red 1/2″ Seam Binding Ribbon; Mini Silver brads; Apothecary Accents Framelits Dies.Layered Labels CASE p103 2012-2013 Annual Catalogue

As I was making the cards, my eyes kept going towards the other sample on the same page… the little ‘Create’ tag. It’s sooo cute. Well, before I knew it, I’d whipped up 20 of those too! I’ll get the photos sorted and share those soon.

Happy stamping,

Simone Bartrum, Stampin' Up! demonstrator Australia, Victoria

The New Catalogues are Here

Woohoo! Love New Catalogue day!

Stampin' Up! 2012-2013 Annual Catalogue, Australia

But wait, there's more….

A festive Seasonal Catalogue too!

Stampin' Up! 2012 Holiday Catalogue, Australia

Click HERE to download or view online


You'll see some fabulous changes. Here are just a few things to look out for:

1. Cheaper Prices! Yes, thanks to the state of the Aussie/US dollar many of our prices have come DOWN. We don't see that happen often these days, do we?

2. More pages! This Annual Catalogue is 40 pages bigger than the last. It's pretty much the same as the Stampin' Up! catalogue offered in other markets (such as the US and Canada) so you'll see a lot of new arrivals for us here in Australia. And as if it couldn't get any better we now have a separate seasonal catalogue – formerly known as a 'mini' catalogue, but there's nothing mini about this one!

3. Bundles save you money! For the first time, when you buy selected matching bundles of products in the catalogue you'll save 15%. So if you buy the stamp sets with matching Framelits, for example, you'll save. It really is FABULOUS. So keep an eye out for the bundles as you're browsing.


Happy reading
