Only 19 Days Left of the Autumn/Winter Mini!!

Hi there stampers!

I hope you are keeping warm wherever you are - isn't it cold right now?? Brrr!! Hubby and I took the kids down to Busselton for a few days last weekend and we must have chosen the coldest weekend to go! It was freezing! The weatherman had promised rain, rain, rain and although we were hit with a huge storm on the way down, by the time we got to Busselton it had blown away and the sun was out! The next three days were freezing cold but gloriously sunny, then of course it rained all the way home! Love going down there, and if you want to know where we stayed, email me and I will share my favourite place to go!

Well, we are into our last month for the Autumn/Winter Mini Catalogue - do you have your copy yet? You only have 19 more days to place your order, or the products might be gone forever! Sometimes some of the products carry over into the next catalogue, but we won't know that until after the mini ends, so if there is something you love, you should grab it while you can!

 The new Annual Catalogue is due on September 1, so that means next month - August - is retirement month! I have seen some of the new products from the new catalogue (one of the fabulous perks of being a demonstrator!) and I can tell you that very little of the current catalogue will be available in the new catalogue......which is absolutely fantastic for stamping enthusiasts ( I love seeing new stuff!!) but is a bit sad to see some favourite things say goodbye. I will add the retirement list to this blog when it is released, so check back for what is going and what is staying! Now is the perfect time to book your stamping party and get the chance to play with some of the retiring product before it goes - we have a fantastic hostess offer this month! Have you seen it yet? Check the chart below:

or check out all the information on the website here. Why not take advantage of all the FREE product you could earn just for having me over for a couple of hours? Or why not have a catalogue party - even if you don't have time for the usual party, you can still earn all of the benefits - ask me how!
While you are checking out the website for the fabulous hostess offer above, have a look at the information for our yearly Regionals - they are a day out jam-packed full of inspiration and stamping, without any boring business stuff! Plenty of presentations and hands-on to keep you busy, and a fantastic lunch is provided too! I would love to take you with me - let me know asap to book your spot!
Well, that's it for me - off to prep for my Stamp Club tomorrow night - can't wait to catch up with this lovely group of ladies and have a good laugh! I look forward to this night all month! Want to have your own catchup with your friends, learn new techniques and play with new product without ANY hassle? Join a stamp club with me - I prepare everything you need for a couple hours of stamping fun - you supply your place and perhaps a cuppa or two and off we go! And it is tailored to you and your interests! AND you can receive all of the hostess benefits too! Ask me how!

Have a great week!

It's nearly school holidays!

Hi all!

I have had a busy day today making little treats for my daughter to take into her classroom on Thursday, which is the last day of this term already! Amazing how quickly the year is passing!!
At the end of each term, my kids ask me to make a little something for them to give to their classmates, and this time around, Lacey has asked for the Candy Wrapper in her school colours - Daffodill Delight and Pacific Point! - and they will be filled with lollies of course!! The Candy Wrapper die is exclusive to Stampin' Up! and it is a really versatile die that can be used all through the year, not just as a bon bon at Christmas! It can even be extended with a simple little trick to make it long enough to hold a regular sized chocolate bar, and looks fantastic on the Christmas Table in your favorite colours. If you would love to see the die in action, invite me over for a get-together with a few of your friends or family and I will show you all the uses for this die! You know I am available for Baby Showers, Kitchen Teas, Mother's Groups etc? I never turn down meeting new people!

Anyway, I thought I would share a photo of how the wrappers look all done and ready for filling! One of my other SU demo friends said she felt warmer when she saw the bright colours! How lovely :)

Aren't they cute! Lacey can't wait to take them to school on Thursday filled with lollies - and the as the teacher is new to Year 3, I am sure he will appreciate the suger rush, hehe!!
The next lot of treats I will be doing for her class will be for Halloween, so I am really looking forward to our upcoming Holiday Mini for some really cool Halloween stamps I can use on the treats! If you would like a copy of the Holiday Mini when it is available in September, let me know, and I will get one into the post for you as soon as I am able to!
Alrighty, I am off now, ready to plan my "Retirement List" parties for next month - so if you would like to book a party to see what is going, going, going, let me know asap so you don't miss out on your preferred date! And if you are very lucky, I may even have a sneaky peek sample made from some of the new products in the upcoming 2012/2013 Annual Catalogue that some of us Demonstrators were able to earn for FREE!!
I would love to catch up with you!
