Sale-a-bration Bottle Tag

Published by under Sale-a-bration

Bottle tags are a nice way of dressing up a gift bottle… Think homemade sauce, bath salts, a bottle of wine, or fancy mixers.


The 'Celebrate' bottle tag above uses some of the lovely Sale-a-bration goodies, free with qualifying purchases until the end of March.

  • Everyday Enchantment designer series paper
  • Outlined Occasions stamp set
  • Everyday Enchantment Ribbon & Brad pack


Bottle tags are surprisingly easy to make, and it's no trouble adapting them to different sized bottles. Don't they add a nice personal touch though?

This particular tag is 23cm x 9cm. The fold is scored at 8cm on the long side.

Want to make that scallop frame around the opening? Check out this post from a very long time ago. It uses the same concept of getting the 'middle' out of a shape.


Hope you have a great weekend! We're off to the Bendigo Picture To Page show this weekend. Come and stop by our stand if you're in the neighbourhood.


Happy stamping,

Happy Valentines Day… (and a Petal Cone Pouch Give-Away)

Published by under 3D projects,Sale-a-bration

Happy Valentines Day!


There's so much to catch up on since my last post. Hope you've been enjoying your February as much as we have.

In short, we had a fabulous Sale-a-bration launch (more on that later), welcomed back our Stamp Clubs for 2012, and had our big summer Team Day.

On the home front, the kids are back at school after the long summer holidays.

We all had a bit of adjusting to do now that the 'baby' of the family is a big school girl. There might have been a few tears shed on the first day, just saying… (no, not from the kids). But now that we've settled into the new routines we're ALL loving the opportunity to spread our wings and do different things. 😉


For today, I'm sharing the love with Petal Cone Die loveheart pouches.

Here are pouches made by some of our talented Stamp Club members, embellished with the gorgeous Sale-a-bration products.


The versatile Petal Cone Die (AUD$59.95 +p/h, contact me to order)


The pouches are fun to make, and can be filled with anything you like.


  • Simply die cut 2 petal cone shapes using the Big Shot,
  • emboss (we used the Houndstooth embossing folder),
  • embellish,  and
  • Sticky Strip the two pieces together using the attached tabs.




I've got a few spare love-heart pouches, so in keeping with a Valentines theme for today I'm 'sharing the love'….


Simply place any Stampin' Up! order with me between now and Friday and I'll send you a fully embellished LoveHeart Pouch, made by me!

I might have to leave the choccy's out just in case they melt in transit, but I reckon I can find something else to put in there for you.

To place your order, just email, call me on 03 5345 1592 or send a text to 0411 642 038 and I'll call you back.


Thanks for stopping by for a visit – don't forget to leave some comment love to say hello.

Happy stamping,



UPCOMING CLASS: February 24th, 7pm – 9pm. All Occasions Stamp-a-Stack. $20 early bird price. Only 3 spots remaining. Want to join us? Click here to reserve your spot.

It’s Time to Sale-a-brate

Published by under Sale-a-bration

We've just returned from a fabulous two-week camping trip by the beach. Swimming and surfing every day and lots of sunset walks along the beach with the fam. 

But we're back now, and just in time for one of my favourite times of the year…


Who doesn't love free stamps?!



I LOVE LOVE LOVE the products in this year's selection. The best ever! Check them out:

If you're not sure what all this Sale-a-bration buzz is about, or you need a refresher, you can get the full low-down by clicking HERE.

All is revealed.




It's hugely exciting to learn that THIS YEAR there's an extra bonus for clever crafters who get the demonstrator Starter Kit.

During SAB the price is reduced to only $249 and you get an EXTRA stamp set to ANY VALUE on top of the already fabulous contents in the kit.

This brings the total value in products and business supplies to nearly $700 for only a $249 investment, but best of all you are buying your very own business, to do with what you will. How awesome is that!

For more info on what it means to 'Join Stampin' Up!' click HERE.



Well, I'd better get back to the unpacking and the many loads of washing. Can't wait to catch up with some of you on Friday at our Celebrate Sale-a-bration event.

Happy Stamping,

 Just a quick note to remind you of our "Celebrate Sale-a-bration' stamping session which will be held in Creswick, Vic, on Friday 27th January. And you're invited!


We'll be kicking off Sale-a-bration for 2012  – an annual Stampin' Up! event that rewards customers and hostesses, and even new demonstrators (if you've ever thought about joining Stampin' Up! you'll be blown away with what's in store).


There is no charge for attending, and for your convenience we're offering you a choice of two short sessions (2pm – 3pm or 7pm – 8pm).


More details in the January newsletter which will be out soon, but please note that you must reserve a spot. Not yet a newsletter subscriber? Enter your email address under the heading 'Subscribe' over there on the right sidebar. ->



We've been busy this week here at home with a BIG clean up and doing all the jobs that we never seem to have time to do. I even tackled my box of retired stamps… the stamps I said I'd NEVER part with. But I'm seriously running out of space and with plenty of stamps still on my wish list, these golden oldies have got to go. Check out the newly updated Stamps For Sale page. All new listings have GREAT prices, and some of the older sets have been further reduced.


As a special bonus, I'm offering my blog readers the chance to take your pick of these retired stamp sets for FREE. All you have to do is submit an order of $100 for current Stampin' Up! products and you can choose ANY retired stamp set for free!

But get in quick because this offer is valid for 1 week only (expires 5pm Friday 6th of January).  Click here to email your order, and don't forget to tell me which retired stamp set you want!


Happy stamping,
