Retired List is LIVE!!

The mad rush is on to secure items from this year's current annual catalogue that are NOT going to make the new catalogue come 1st June.

I can tell you a few of the in-colour reindeers have already sold out.  So my advice is....DON'T DELAY!!

If you want something really bad, buy it now.  Don't wait to bundle it into a stamp club order, or wait a few days to make up your mind.  BUY IT NOW.

The absolute best way to buy retired stock is to do your own online order.  I have set up a hostess code and if enough people use it, I will divvy up the hostess benefits between you all.

So, if you are placing an order for retired product, use the code: FDZZUXH2
(please note: this is NOT the stamp club order hostess code.  If you are in the April stamp club, you will be emailed a seperate code).  This code will be good until the 30th of April.

I often use these bins at my Stampin' Up! events and I get asked all the time if people can get one.  The answer has always been no, because they have been a gift at a SU! event for demonstrators - one of the perks of being a demo

Anyway, to celebrate 10 years of being in the South Pacific, you now have the opportunity to grab one of these little beauties.

Simply place an order of $100 or more and I will send you one of these for FREE*!  That's right, that's all you have to do.  Plus, if you order by 31st March, you will also get a FREE SAB item for every $90 you spend.  And if you place a qualifying order of $250 or more, you will ALSO get your choice of any SAB products for FREE as well!


*Contact me ASAP to place your order, because these collapsable bins are only available while stocks last.  They are VERY popular and will sell out quickly.

Sale-A-Bration is HERE!!!!

Ok my lovely crafters, here it is....the moment of the year we all look forward to.


Why?  Because quite frankly, it is the only time of the year where EVERYONE - hostesses, new demonstrators and regular customers - get to enjoy free stuff.  Just by doing what they usually do.  Order stamps, inks and accessories!

I have been enjoying the relaxed life maybe a little too much since my surgery and as such, I have only taken delivery of my pre-order stuff today.  And it's live for you to get now as well.  So it looks like we'll both be enjoying the new products at the same time.

I have a few stacks of the new Occasions Catalogue and the SAB catty right here in my hot little hands, so if you want a copy (club members and tech group members need not let me know....you will automatically get them), then drop me a line via email and I'll get you one!  Simple.

In the meantime, I will crack open some of the the new products and have a play - I can't believe how many people I know have birthdays in January/February!! - so I need to bang out a number of birthday cards.  And there are a number of products in the catalogues that are just perfect for these.

New Occasions Catalogue and stamp club

Ok, following the Christmas frenzy of making cards and teachers gifts, my desk (and office) looks like a bomb has gone off.  My task for the weekend (while it is cool down here and I have some time) is to get in here and CLEAN UP.  I cannot find anything much less begin to think about getting new stuff out.

What about you?

I have to get my space sorted out because I have to get ready for the new Occasions Catalogue which is going to be live on 4th January.  I am placing an order for catalogues right now, so if you want one, please contact me ASAP and I will get you one free of charge.

One of my stamp clubs is coming to an end, and I have 2 places vacant.  If you would like to take advantage of snapping up one of these places, then let me know ASAP.  These places don't come up very often as current club members tend to roll over into the next 12 month period.  For more information on my clubs, please read the Clubs and Groups tab on this blog or contact me via email or mobile (0419 373 115) to discuss details.  But basically, it is a 12 month commitment and every 2nd month, you spend a minimum of $50 and once during the 12 months you are the hostess.  No worries about hosting parties, tidying your house....nothing like that!    Stamp club will start on 15th March 2017.

More details to come....stay tuned!!!!!

Let's get some Christmas stuff going

I love Christmas.  I am unashamedly excited about all things festive.  I have grand plans early in the year of how my decorations are going to look, how my handmade packages will be presented and that I will hand make every single one of my cards.

Whilst I do try and get cards made, I have to admit a sense of failure on the other aspects.  But I love Christmas and I am secretly one of those people that never moans that decorations are in the shops too early!

So, to that end, let's start getting some Chrissy stuff happening.

Over on my Facebook page - and the post below this one - I mentioned TWO classes that I will be running in October and November to help you get a jump on making cards and tags.  Please do not forget about these and RSVP as soon as you can.  i know that time gets away, and this is whyI try to make sure that the card class at least is run in October so that you have plenty of time to have a play with some of the new stuff and to work out what you would like to use for your own Christmas cards.

The Tin of Tags class is brilliant, in as much as we all need tags.  More and more, people are noticing the little efforts that we go to in delivering presents (ok, not maybe the kids), but teachers, grandies, parents, other family members or treasured friends, all notice that you went to an extra length to make something just for them.  The tags are easy and will take you next to no time to do.  And doing the class means you get to use my stamps and inks to complete the while project.  In about 90 minutes, you will walk out with 30 handmade beautiful tags ready to pop on presents.  A few of them can actually be done in non Chrissy colours and you could use these to put on presents throughout the year if you wish!

Over the next week or so, I am going to be popping up a few new Christmas cards.  None of these will be the cards that you will make at one of my classes and I encourage you to copy them for your own personal use.

Let's get stuck in!!!

Christmas is here....sort of

Well, even though it might not FEEL like Christmas, for crafters, it really is time to THINK about it.
If you intend on doing handmade cards gifts, tags, packaging etc...then you need to get a jump start on it.  You should be trying to get a start on them anywhere from now through to mid November.  After that....then time just blows by as we all get caught up in the end of year festivities etc.

So to help you plan and get organised for the silly season, I have three things for you today.

1. The Holiday Catalogue is LIVE from today.  If you are in one of my stamp clubs or technique groups, you will have already received your catalogue or it will be arriving very soon in the mail.  Please contact me if you have not got yours by early next week.

In this catty, there are heaps of things to tempt you into getting crafty for the Christmas period.  Even though we here in Australia do not celebrate Hallowe'en or Thanksgiving, there are some very cute and practical products for us in these lines as well.  So don't dismiss them.

Simply click on the SHOP button on the left side of this blog and start shopping online.  Or contact me to place your order.

2. A few of my customers have participated in the Tin of Cards classes that I held last year and just a few months ago.  Last year, I also ran some Christmas Tags classes as well.  Well this, year, we will be doing it again and using the Tin of Tags kit out of the catalogue.  For this class, you will only need to bring your adhesives...I will make sure there is a Tin of Tags for you and you will use the corresponding stamp set to decorate them with my inks etc.  So, pencil into your diaries the 5th November for this class.  More details to follow.

3. As has become my custom, I will be holding a Christmas Card class again.  This is extremely popular and I encourage you to get your names down for this ASAP so you don't miss out.  This year, we will be using a range of products out of the Holiday Catty so you get a chance to use them for yourself and consider which products are going to be used for your own Christmas crafting.  We will also be looking at creating a couple of cards using non traditional Christmas colours, so if you are interested in this, contact me.  Pencil into your diaries the 22nd October for this class.  More details to follow.
