Retiring Lists & Big Discounts

Published by under cards | Apr 03 2023

The new annual catalogue is not too far away – it starts on 2nd May and let me tell you… it’s amazing!

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

Discounts start on the Tuesday 4th of April (12.01am – set your alarm), but if you want to make sure you get something before they are gone for good, then you may want to get them today.

There are two lists, so grab a pen and paper or a highlighter…

Download the retiring Annual Catalogue list – sortable Excel spreadsheet

Download the retiring Mini Catalogue list – sortable Excel spreadsheet

From Tuesday you can also see the retiring items in their own category in my online store!

Hot tip: Take note of the asterisks * in the documents. For some of the items the discounted bundle code is retiring, but the individual items will still be available in the new catalogue. Some others are being reconfigured. The explanation for all can be found at the bottom of the document.

Happy stamping,

March IDEAS: Stunning Scraps

Published by under cards | Mar 02 2023

The IDEAS team is back to share another round of amazing tutorials with you. This month the theme is ‘Stunning Scraps’ with the focus being on different ways to use up our scraps of paper, cardstock and other crafty elements that tend to accumulate.

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

I find that I have a lot of strips of cardstock and paper left over so I have gathered them for my project. The best thing is that the strips don’t have to be straight cuts. In fact, I prefer this technique when the strips are all kinds of weird angles and off-cuts.

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. 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.

Feb IDEAS: Regency Park Suite

Published by under cards | Feb 02 2023

New fun fold: TRIANGLE POCKET PANEL CARD

The IDEAS team is back to share another round of amazing tutorials with you. This month the theme is ‘That’s So Suite of You’ with the focus being on the amazing suites in both the annual and mini catalogues.

My projects (see above) use the Regency Park suite which includes quite a large range of coordinating products in the new mini catalogue.

It might not look it from the image above, but one of the cards is a fun fold.

I’ve called it a TRIANGLE POCKET PANEL CARD!

I experimented by combining two different features from cards I had received or made in recent months. Something a bit different that I know you’ll love to make.

This tutorial was made available for free to my customers and team during the month of February 2023, and was available for a standalone purchase. Now that some of the products are retired you can purchase the full 90-page tutorial bundle (which includes the project shown above) for only AUD $9 (reduced price)! As an extra bonus for supporting my original tutorial, I will send the current month’s Ideas Tutorial Bundle as a free bonus with all purchases of this one! In January 2024, the theme is ‘Loving Sale-a-bration‘.

You’ll get dozens of paper craft ideas in the tutorial bundle, created by Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from around the world. Some of the stamps, dies and papers are no longer available for purchase, but the projects ideas and instructions are still fantastic and will give you lots of new ideas.

To purchase: Click this PAYPAL LINK and in the comments/notes let me know that you are purchasing the February 2023 Ideas Bundle. The tutorial will be emailed to you within 24 hours.

COST: AUD $9

Surprise! New Sale-a-bration Gifts

Published by under cards | Feb 01 2023

Welcome to February! And what a lovely surprise to find today with the release of a swag of NEW Sale-a-bration rewards. Not sure what Sale-a-bration is all about? Check this post.

The new options are actually products from the current annual and mini catalogues, so this is a fabulous opportunity!

Did you notice in the flyer that you actually get TWO spools of that white frayed ribbon? Very cool.

Punches are always a favourite and both the Songbird and Essential Tag punches are valued at $34 each!

Essentials Tag Punch $34 or FREE with a $90
Songbird Punch $34 or FREE with a $90 order

I’m loving the Enjoy the Journey paper and only just recently restocked my supply, so take my advice and get it for free if you get the opportunity!

This is truly versatile paper. Just add a sentiment or create silhouettes with dies cut from black cardstock…

Don’t look past the Loveliest Layers Decorative Masks either. They are actually really clever, but keep in mind they are only $18.50 to buy from the catalogue, so you might prefer to add them to your order instead of get them as a Sale-a-bration freebie. It’s nice to have the choice!

I hope you enjoyed these creative ideas and have fun shopping during February. Don’t forget you also get 80 pages of creative ideas sent to you as a gift from me with any order over $50. Check tomorrow’s post for a sneak peek of some of the projects in the bundle.

January IDEAS: Loving Sale-a-bration

Published by under cards | Jan 05 2023

Today is a VERY EXCITING day with the launch of Sale-a-bration here in Australia AND a brand new mini catalogue. To learn more about Sale-a-bration and the rest of today’s big announcements, check this post. For now, I’m thrilled to share with you a sneak peek of the latest IDEAS Tutorial Bundle: with the theme of “Loving Sale-a-bration”. Very appropriate! We have so much to show you, in fact almost every Sale-a-bration item is represented in this bundle of projects, thanks to the design team’s fabulous work again this month!

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

My projects (see above) use the Something Fancy bundle of stamps and dies, and the Favored Flowers Designer Series Paper Sale-a-bration item. I have to admit, I wasn’t too sure about those papers to start with but WOW there’s more than meets the eye. I’m surprised but it’s one of the products I’ve used over and over again during the past few weeks. I know you’ll love these projects, and of course they can be easily adapted to your own supplies.

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. 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.

It’s our favourite time of the year. Not only do we have brand new products in the January to April mini catalogue, but Sale-a-bration is back!

One thing to note: Over the past few years, we’ve had two Sale-a-bration events a year, but from 2023 we are going back to once a year. So don’t miss it! This is your chance to stock up on new products and replenish your craft supplies, while getting free gifts!


What is Sale-a-bration?

Between now and the end of February, spend $90 on any current Stampin’ Up! product and you can choose a FREE GIFT (level 1). Spend $180 and you can choose two Level 1 gifts OR the bigger Level 2 gifts. The more you spend, the more you get for free!

Watch a video of the free stamps here.

Watch a video of the gorgeous free paper packs here.

Remember, if your order is over $250 you’ll also get Stampin’ Rewards which is at least 10% of the value of your order in free catalogue products of your choice. So for example, if you spend $270 you’ll get 3 Level 1 Sale-a-bration gifts PLUS $27 in free products of your choice.

As an extra gift, I’ll email you this month IDEAS tutorial which is over 70 pages of tutorials for you to keep. Nice!

Kits have becoming hugely popular over the past year, with new ones always warmly received. From today we have a brand new kit available here in Australia called Saying Thanks. This kit is only $23 and includes pre-printed sentiments (no stamps or ink in this one) for quick and easy card-making.
