Final call for spring mini orders

Yes, we are rapidly coming to the end of the Spring mini. If there is anything that you have been deciding over, and thinking that you want to buy, NOW IS THE TIME. Once this catalogue is gone, it is gone.

A couple of the items that I think fellow stampers should definately consider out of this catalogue are:
  • Great Friend stamp set (set of 5) on pages 4 & 5. For $31.95, this is a fantastic set that I have been able to use many times in a variety of ways. It is a truly versatile stamp set.
  • Scallop Oval Punch on page 7. If you want to match punches, then this is DEFINATELY something you want to get. This punch matches the Large Oval punch (#11 punch on page 152 of the IB&C) to enable you to layer your images. At the same price as the other large punches ($30.95), this is a good purchase. Consider the Oval All stamp set ($29.95) on page 7 to get even more use with this punch.
  • StazOn cleaner on page 17. This is a must if you are using StazOn ink at all for use when watercolouring. The ink will not come off your stamps with our regular Stampin' Mist, but the StazOn cleaner shifts it straight away, meaning that your stamps are not stained. At $9.95, this is a steal.
  • Tree Trimmings stamp set (set of 4) on page 21. This would have to be my biggest selling set from the mini catty. It is another set that I have been able to use in a number of ways, incorporate with other stamp sets and add that festive touch to a number of projects. This extremely well priced set ($24.95) is well worth the purchase.
This catalogue ends on November 30th. What this means, is that I have to submit all orders for this catty by this date. So if you want anything, PLEASE don't leave it until the last day, because your order may not make the cutoff time and I would hate for you to be disappointed. So to that end, I am suggesting that any orders for this catty be placed with me by SATURDAY 28th NOVEMBER. Payment by credit card or cash is preferred as both these payments are dealt with immediately. Direct deposit into my account may not show up until after the 30th and I can't submit orders before I have the money. Sorry.

I hope you have enjoyed the first mini catalgue presented by me. Keep your eye out for the new Summer mini catalogue which goes on sale from December 1st. Also, remember - and mark in your calanders - the launch of the mini catalogue I am hosting on Saturday December 12th (see post below for all details, or give me a call).

New Summer Mini Catalogue launch

It's almost here! The Summer Mini Catalogue goes on sale from December the 1st. And to showcase some of the wonderful things that are in this new catty, I am hosting an open house on Saturday December 12th from 1pm to 4pm at the old convent complex, 1 Fireman St Colac (contact me if you need directions).

Feel free to come and go as you please. You can come for half an hour, or stay for the whole time....it is up to you! Cost is gold coin donation which will go to the local CFA brigade.

I have taken delivery of my pre-order supplies and in the next few days I will be starting to make up a number of samples of cards, scrapbook pages and OTP projects using the new products. Hopefully these will give you ideas and inspire you to create your own things!

At the launch, I will also have a couple of 'make and takes' available for you to do, plus there will be light refreshments, a door prize and a glass of bubbly to welcome in the festive season!

RSVP is not essential but is appreciated so I can cater food and also have enough M&T supplies available. Feel free to bring a friend along as well! I look forward to seeing you there.

Updates soon... I promise

For those that regularly check out this blog, I apologise to you for the lapse in my updating of late. Things have been extremely busy around here for the past couple of weeks. We took 3 cows to the local show and this has meant getting them washed and led around most days in the lead up. I also put in a few scrapbooking items as well. The cows did ok (a 2nd and 3rd) and the scrapbooking did well (1st and 2nd in the album section and 1st and 2nd in the double LO section).

Tomorrow I am taking my husband to Melbourne to have an operation on his back. I will be back and forwards between Melbourne and the farm for the next week, but I will endevour to get some time to update things on here. I also have to get my monthly newsletter out as well sometime this week....phew, time is getting away!!

So keep your eyes on this site. I WILL update soon.
