Oh Happy Day!! Oh Happy Day!!



Yes, it's that time of year again - Sale-a-bration time!! Time for FREE goodies - and this SAB catalogue is the biggest one we have had yet - 19 gorgeous products to choose from! Check out the SAB catalogue here and choose your products - but be warned, you WILL find it hard to choose just one or two lol!! I have a few in my stash now- shhhh, don't tell my hubby hehe!!

SAB is one of the best times of the year if you have been thinking of joining as a demonstrator - and just so you know, you CAN join JUST to get fantastic discounts on our fabulous product!! For a low $169, you can choose $294 worth of Stampin' Up! product, from both of our current catalogues - the Holiday Mini and the Annual Catalogue - and also from the upcoming Seasonal Catalogue - yep, you get to choose product from a catalogue that hasn't even been released yet!! Woo hoo!! Check out the joining special HERE.

I just had one of my lovely crafty friends over for coffee and she joined right then and there on my ipad - she had her list all written down and was super organised and so very excited!! I am always excited about SU and their fantastic offers and products, so couldn't wait to share the opportunity with her - and she will be coming with me to Convention in May, so we are like a couple of little girls with all our plans!!

I do have a PDF I can share with you if you have an issue following the above catalogue - it can be a little 'busy' for some, so let me know and I will email it right out to you!

I would love to share the excitement of SAB with you, so contact me to arrange delivery of your catalogue, or why not book a party and earn your own FREE goodies?? The kids are back at school very soon and a couple of hours with friends (or on your own - I love one-on-one!!) making something with your own hands and flicking through our gorgeous catalogues sounds great to me!!

I thought I would share some simple cards I found on a U.S. demo site -  Mary Fish is one of my favourite demonstrators! Check out her original designs. These are the ones I made:




I didn't change them - why mess with perfection?? - and don't the colours just pop with the addition of the mini brad? Such a simple card, but with plenty of wow! I made a whole heap of them for my hubby's clients, they really seem to like the personal touch of a handmade card for their birthday. I really like this stamp set - it is called Feeling Sentimental and it is absolutely free with an order of $100! There are 18 other goodies to choose from, from stamps to ribbon/buttons, to embossing folders and even a few things from our current Annual Catalogue - something for everyone!

Let me know if you would like to see the catalogue for yourself :)

Back soon,

Convention approaches.....

Every year Stampin' Up! holds a 3 day Convention for all of us craft-crazy demonstrators from all over Australia and New Zealand. This year it is being held in Brisbane at the Brisbane Convention Centre in Southbank. I was in Southbank 18 months ago and what a fantastic place!



I can't wait to see this place again!! 3 Days of crafting bliss - learning new techniques, using new product, hearing news about the upcoming annual catalogue - and I get to go with some crafty friends!! This will be my first convention and I can't wait!! 5 days away from the hubby and the kids isn't a bad incentive either hehe!!

But I need some help!! I would like to go to the Manager's Reception while I am there - they always hear the coolest stuff and I want to hear it too!! I currently need one more lovely lady to join my team - is that lady you?? Once I have my team of 6, I would need one of my team to have someone join under them and I will promote to Manager!! Have you ever thought about joining the coolest company around?? Do you and a friend want to have a hobby together? I can promise that you won't regret it! There is no pressure to sell above your minimums, there is no stress at all! Craft is meant to be fun, and I can promise you it will be!!
Why not contact me today to chat about your options?

Sale-a-bration is coming up on the 22nd January, and it is a fantastic time to join! You pay the usual $169 to join, and instead of choosing $235 worth of fabulous Stampin' Up! product of your choice, you get to choose a massive $294 worth!! All because of our 25th Anniversay Celebrations!!

You get to join a fantastic company that is so very, very generous, you get to join a growing team of enthusiastic ladies, you get as much or as little help with your business as you like ( I am always available for questions or help), you choose your input - work your business as a business, or just get the discount of a minimum 20% for you and your friends. No pressure to do more than you want to EVER!! Your business/hobby, your way!! Training is available in the form of Regionals and Conventions every year and if you are local to me, you can join in on my craft days learning new ideas, techniques and ways to improve your crafting or your business (if that is what you would like).

Why not contact me today and find out more - no obligation! If you are local to me, let's meet for coffee and it's on me! I am a friendly mum of two who is in love with papercrafting, and I would love to meet you!

Let me know how I can help you in your crafting....

until next time,

Test post from iPad

So, I just found out that two of my lovely crafty friends will be coming with me to convention in May, and I am so excited!!
I have an iPad but have never successfully managed to blog from it u til I found an app called Blogsy, so here I am trying it out, so bear with me lol! I wanted to be able to blog every day from convention, because I have followed along avidly devouring all of the info and photos other SU demos so kindly posted during previous conventions. This will be my first convention, and I wanted to share for those that can't make it this year!
You may have heard about our clearance rack, and tomorrow is our last week of the blitz.

Check out the last week  HERE and check out the bargains for yourself!

Until next time,

Photos have been resolved!!













Well, I had to use a different browser, but I am back with some pictures for you!!

So, the clearance rack is now in week 3 - Click HERE to go to the Clearance Rack - and grab yourself a bargain before it all sells out, limited stocks and once they are gone, they are gone for good!

The new My Little Valentine Promotion is on right now - click HERE to see what it is all about:



A free Simply Sent Kit with every My Little Valentine stamp set purchased!! This stamp set doesn't have to just be for Valentine's Day - try it with other colours for birthdays, gifts or just general cards......

And don't forget about our new Talking Tags - they are so fab!!

Talking Tag

With Talking Tag, you can send a gift that is uniquely you. Talking Tag is a message label you can attach to cards, invitations, gifts . . . anything! Personalise birthday cards, Christmas gifts or even record quick instructions for a recipe. Now your pictures really can say a thousand words!

How to send a voice message:

  1. Download the FREE TalkingTag™ App on you smartphone from talkingtag.mobi, iTunes® or Google Play™.
  2. Adhere the message tag to your card or gift.
  3. Open TalkingTag™ App and scan the code.
  4. Record your message (recording starts immediately, so make sure you’re ready!).

You will have the opportunity to listen, re-record, cancel, or confirm your message after you’ve completed recording it. Each label allows up to 60 seconds of a greeting, song, or product message.

To play the message, recipients will need to download the app and scan the code. Messages are saved for two years, so they can listen to it over and over.

How to Buy Talking Tags:
Buy ‘em by the sheet! You get 10 tags for just $12.95 AU/$15.75 NZ (item 129723). Contact me to order!

Helpful Tips:
  • Adhere Talking Tag to a flat surface, otherwise the scanner can’t read the code.
  • Multiple tags can be attached to one surface, but don’t place them too close together. When scanning a message, you shouldn’t be able to see another code on the screen
  • Do not write or place any decoration over the label.
  • Talking Tag has a permanent adhesive and cannot be repositioned once attached to a surface. Attempting to remove it could tear the label, making it impossible to listen to the content.
  • A Talking Tag message label can only hold one message. Once a message is confirmed, it cannot be deleted or re-recorded.
Until next time!

Can you believe we are in 2013 already?? Wowee 2012 went quick!! I just want to slow time down and just look around and breathe - how about you?

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year - we spent Christmas Day with family and New Years with friends I consider my family, it was wonderful - but you know, the recent Perth heatwave was terrible!! I so hoped for a cool Christmas day for a change, but it wasn't to be unfortunately........will hold out hope for a cool one this year hey? We have had two gorgeous weather days and I have spent them in my craftroom prepping for my first Stamp Club of the year - it was great to be back in there!!

I have to tell you about the latest specials from Stampin' Up! They are starting the year off with a bang!! The new Seasonal Mini is available for Demonstrators to order from right now, and will be available for everyone else from February 1st - I love being able to get my goodies so much earlier!! Just one of the perks of being a demo - and you can be one of the first to get them too, just contact me to find out how!
You should see this new catalogue - if you love pretty, vintage and exciting, this will be the mini for you - but don't forget with the start of a new mini, it means the old is retiring!! If you want anything from the current Holiday Mini, now is the time to get your orders in - once the mini retires, most of the goodies are gone for good! Don't miss out!

Sale-a-bration is right around the corner - this is the best SAB since Stampin' Up! arrived in Australia! There are so many gorgeous products to choose from, and all absolutely FREE just for placing a qualifying order!!! No limits!!! I will be ordering the Seasonal Catalogues next week, so if you want to reserve your copy, let me know!

So Valentines Day is next month, and SU has a fabulous promotion with an exclusive stamp set that is only available until January 21st!

I seem to be having trouble uploading the pictures, I will try again later....but for now, click on the links and they will take you where you need to go :)

Have you heard about Talking Tags? You can scan the tag, record your voice message, then stick the tag anywhere - on envelopes to be mailed, on scrapbook pages, inside cards - anywhere you can think of! It is the coolest idea, and you can download the Talking Tag app from several app addresses - all supplied in the package!
