DO you want 20% off all your crafting supplies?

Most of the ladies in my team have joined for the fantastic starter kit and discount.
To join, you pay $169 and receive $235 of product.  That's $66 FREE!  And shipping and handling is FREE.
But wait!  There's MORE!
During Sale-a-Bration you can also choose TWO extra stamp sets for FREE!  Yippee!

Here's some more information!!

Does joining sound scary?  I assure you it's not.  Here's some FAQs.

Q:  What do I get in my Starter Kit?
A:  Anything you want - make up a list of products you would like up to $235 from the NEW catalogue.  You pay $169.  A great way to get a HUGE discount!  During Sale-a-Bration you also choose two extra stamp sets (go for some biggies!) for FREE!  If you
just want to order the starter kit, that’s fine.  Stop there if you want.

Q:  What happens after that?
A:  A brown box of fun stuff will arrive at your door about a week later.  And then you start playing.  Yippee!!

Q:  Do I have to sell a lot of products? 
A:  Nope.  It’s up to you.  Many people sign up as Hobby Demonstrators - i.e. for the discount.  That's why I signed up originally.  You can purchase for yourself  or sell to friends and family.  As little or as much as you like.  If you want to try to sell more widely that's up to you.  You can try running classes or parties if you want. I will help you with this if you like.

Q:  What happens if I don't sell anything?
A:  Nothing:  there are no penalties for stopping or dropping.  If you were to sign up during Sale-a-Bration, you would have till the end of July to enjoy a 20% discount on any products.  If you buy/sell enough, you will then be an active demonstrator for the
next quarter.  If you don't purchase or sell anything more, that's fine.  It really is up to you!

Q:  Why join?
A:  Cardmaking and scrapbooking are two of the best hobbies in the world!  By signing up to Stampin' Up! you become part of generous welcoming family of like minded people.  You are also welcome to be part of my team activities.  For me, it's my job and I have made so many friends and had so many wonderful experiences! I would love you to join my team!

Bursting to sign up?  Give me a call or email me. You can even join online by clicking HERE.

Painted With Love DSP

Of all the Designer Series Papers that Stampin' Up!® has released, this has to be one of my favourites.  And it's a specialty DSP which means it is heavier weight.

I made this box recently using one of the fabulous foil sides (one side incorporates gold foil), the other side is 'plain' but not in any way 'plain'!  It holds some Darryl Lea Licorice Bullets.  Yum!

So easy to measure and score using the Stampin' Up! Trimmer.

This DSP is $21 for 12 scrumptious sheets.  You can order it through my online store or by emailing me at

Don't forget that it is Sale-a-Bration time!  Every $90 you spend gets you a FREE Sale-a-Bration item.

Welcome.....We Must Celebrate!

If you don't know me, you should know that I will send Happy Mail for any reason.  I have cards ready to send at the drop of a hat and postage stamps ready to pop on.

These cards are ready to send out to anyone who joins my team:  "We're Behind You All the Way!"
I love this set!  The animals are 'cute as can be' and they are so fun to colour in with Stampin' Blends!

You like?  The animals are all on one stamp but some people actually cut the stamp up so that the animals can be separated.  Whaaaat?  I was going to do it but wasn't brave enough.

The stamp set is called We Must Celebrate and is available in my online store.

Don't forget that Sale-a-Bration is a great time to join my team.
  • Pay $169
  • Get $235 of product (so that's $66 FREE)
  • Free postage
  • AND during Sale-a-Bration you also choose two extra stamp sets!

I would love you to join my team!!  Contact me for more information by emailing me at or phone 07 55 765 469.

Say it isn't so!!

Hi Everyone
Some of you might remember the Fast Fuse special we had last year.  The US had it also but sold out in only hours.  Their special was repeated a few days ago to make amends but again, it sold out within hours.
With this occurring SU! has informed us that Fast Fuse won't be carrying over into the new catalogue in June and that our stock is available only while it lasts.  As I am writing this both the Fast Fuse and the refills are still available but when they are gone they are gone.

If you are wanting to order, pop on over to my shop and load some into your basket.  Use the host code 2GPUDBW3 in your shopping basket.

Alternately, give me a call on 07 55 765 469 or email me at

Don't forget that it is Sale-a-Bration time!  Every $90 you spend gets you a FREE Sale-a-Bration item.

Stampin' Blends meet Petal Passion DSP meet inspiration from a Mercedes

Hi all

I have made a beautiful card that I would love to share with you. I have really taken a shine to Stampin' Blends.  I LOVE them.  Colouring with anything else just isn't as fun!

Stampin' Up!® has also released a beautiful black and white DSP called Petal Passion.

What happens if you mix the two and colour in the Petal Passion?  THIS!!

One of the pages is covered with flowers which I coloured in with my Stampin' Blends.  Then I had to cut it (!!!!) to fit behind this faux polaroid frame.

And there's envelopes to match!!

And the Mercedes?? Mercedes Weber is one of the talented members of Stampin' Up!s Artisan Design Team.  She made a 'polaroid' card using another type of DSP.  So I CASEd her design.

Love in the mailbox!

This is what the full set of DSP looks like!  Definitely some more colouring potential there and also some striking black and white projects to be made.

Don't forget that it is Sale-a-Bration. For every $90 you spend, you get to choose a SAB item for FREE!  And there are two extra special SAB items with a $180 spend.

You can browse the SAB catalogue by clicking on the SAB pic on the left side bar.

If you have a big wish list SAB is a great time to join.  You can even join as a Hobby Demonstrator - just for the discount.
You pay $169 for $235 of product of your choice (that's $66 for free!) AND during SAB you get to choose two extra stamp sets.  Yowsa!

Don't just sit there thinking about it!  I would love you to join my team!

Email me at or phone me on 07 55 765 469.  I can talk you into it!

Yesterday..... Launch for Rosies

I had a great morning yesterday with my launch of the new Stampin' Up!® Occasions and Sale-a-Bration catalogues.  Nineteen ladies braved the heat to join in the fun.

I have a great time preparing for my launches.   It's fun to get a variety of displays ready to inspire everyone.

The ladies spent the morning completing the make and takes - here are some busy hands....

And here are the make and takes:

Heartfelt Blooms is one of the fantastic Sale-a-Bration offerings.  This card is straight from the SAB brochure.  There are loads of pics to inspire you and get your creative juices flowing.

One of my favourite sets from the Occasions Catalogue is Bird Banter.  I CASEd this card from Brian King.  The ladies got to play with Stampin' Blends - a perfect way of adding colour to the toucan's beak.

Epic Celebrations is another SAB offering and a great set for boy cards.  We took a feminine approach  with this card, colouring is with watercolour pencils.  Doesn't white pencil look great on the Melon Mambo?

One of the fab packaging options in the Occasions Catalogue is these Silver Mini Gable Box - we made this one at Onstage so it was easy to reproduce as a make and take.

And lastly, this black and white cutie... Party Pandas is another SAB offering and a very popular ne at that!   love how this card has the tiniest hint of colour with the red heart.

I love wrapping up lucky door prizes for my ladies.  These were also a great way to showcase some more products.

We had a 'sticky raffle' which meant 10 prizes that were all sticky somehow - snail refill, enamel shapes, double sided tape, envelopes etc.

We raised $120 for Rosie's which is a cause that Marlene, one of the ladies, volunteers for.  She was able to give us a bit of information about her experiences with Rosies.

Thanks so much to everyone who came along.  Thanks for your support of my business.  If you weren't able to come but would like a catalogue or information about my classes, please contact me at or phone me on 07 55 765 469.
