Annual Christmas get together

As I foreshadowed in a previous post, we are once again getting together to celebrate the upcoming Christmas period and also the year that was of stamping!

I can now confirm the details:

Date: November 30th 2011 (Wednesday)
Place: Culture Cafe, Murray St COLAC
Time: 7pm
RSVP: Abilities only to me (email is great) no later than MONDAY 28th (earlier than this is most appreciated!)

If you are attending, please make a Christmas card to swap with another guest (leave inside blank).  Meal and drinks are at your own cost...I have simply arranged the venue.  This is a great opportunity to meet some of the other ladies that are involved in some of my groups, clubs and classes.  Everyone is VERY friendly and I would love to see you on the night!

Mark it in your diaries and RSVP to me now!!!

Christmas Stitched Stocking set NOW AVAILABLE

Many of you that attended my workshops throughout October would've seen the fantastic set "Stitched Stockings" and the matching punch.  I combined this set with the Cherry Cobbler embossing powder and the chunky glass glitter on one of my demonstrations.

As you all know, SU! have this set in the upcoming Summer mini catalogue which goes live on December 1st, but for the month of October, you were able to buy it early.  Well, once again, common sense has prevailed and SU! are allowing orders for this set and the matching punch to be placed FROM TODAY!  So there is absolutely NO EXCUSE not to be able to whip up cute little Chrissy cards and tags!

I will load some pictures on here tomorrow of the Christmas cards and tags we made at the October class, PLUS I will also put up a picture of the demonstration I showed using the stamp set and punch.  These will give you some ideas on where to get started on using the set.


The punch is $33.95 and the stamp set is $42.95 (clear) or $53.95 (wood).  Give me a call or shoot me an email if you would like to order the stamp and punch (or separate) today!

Don't forget about your Chrissy cards

As we are rapidly nearing the end of November, I want to remind you all that I have my Christmas Card kit still on offer for those that would like to make their own Christmas cards.

I would also like to clarify the colour scheme as I was at a function the other night and someone commented on not really liking the blue.  The kit uses the "Letters to Santa" DSP range and as such, you will get a variety of DSP colours in your kit ranging from the blue that is pictured, through to green, red, chocolate and printed images.  Of the 20 cards your kit will make, you will have 4 in each colour range.  So if you don't really like blue, rest assured ALL the cards are not going to end up like that!

So if this changes your mind about the kit, and you would like to order one for just $32, contact me ASAP.  The offer for this kit is only valid until FRIDAY 25th November.  After this date, I will take no more orders for the kit (although you can order all the supplies separately if you wish).  This will then give me (and you) enough time to place an order, get the supplies delivered, cut up the kits and get them out to you by the end of the first week of December.  This should allow you enough time to make up cards and get them delivered in plenty of time for the festive season.

Christmas around the corner

Ugh.  I was sitting down comparing diaries with my mum yesterday making sure that we had various events booked in and it was scary to to how close Christmas actually is.  When you break your time down into weeks, the time is just going to fly!

So, a couple of things that I want to mention to you to try and ease your Christmas shopping angst:

  • Christmas Card kit - if you would like to make some cards for the special people in your life but can see that you will not have enough time to devise the design yourself and then arrange buying all the individual bits and pieces, then this is for you.  Simply purchase my Christmas Card kit and you will be on your way to making and sending 20 cards for the low starting price of $32.  Click HERE to see the post with all the details.
  • Christmas Gift Certificates - if there is someone that you would like to purchase some craft gear for, but are stuck to know what to get them, why not let them choose for themselves?  By buying a gift certificate, you can be assured that the gift you give will be EXACTLY what your recipient wants.  Certificates start at $25.
  • Christmas Sale - I have a range of retired stamps and papers that may make that last minute gift buying a bit easier.  I will put these onto my blogsite in the next week, so check that out.  Some of the stamps are brand new, others are pre-loved, but all are in great condition. 

If you are thinking of placing an order for Christmas - or you know of someone that is going to buy something for you for Christmas - I would strongly recommend that orders are placed by DECEMBER 12th to make sure that the parcel is delivered on time.

As I am now getting into the festive mood myself, I want to announce a special hostess offer.  

Book a workshop for January 2012 and on top of the fantastic hostess benefits that Stampin' Up! provides, you will also get an extra FREE gift from me!  If your workshop brings in $600 or more (before p/h) then you will receive ANOTHER FREE gift from me!  Wow.  All that FREE stuff.  Makes me want to host a workshop myself!!!!

Dates are limited, so get in quick to secure your preferred date.  Remember, workshops do not HAVE to be held on a weekend....think about inviting some friends around for a Wednesday session, or possibly hold your workshop on a Tuesday night.  It may be easier to get people to attend a weekday workshop during summer as weekends tend to be very busy.

To DIE for

Thinking about getting a Big Shot?  Maybe you are hoping that someone might buy one for you for Christmas?  Or would you like to add to your dies and embossing folder stash?  Well, now is the time to do something about it!

For the month of November, Stampin' Up! are offering 10% off a select number of dies, embosslits and embossing folders.  PLUS there is also a Big Shot bundle where you can get a Big Shot machine, an embossing folder and an embosslit for 10% off!

Check out all the details by clicking HERE .  Remember, this is only for a select range of products and only for a limited time, so get your skates on!  If you would like to 'nudge' a spouse or partner in the direction of getting one of these for Christmas, get them to simply shoot me through an email or give my mobile a call and I can arrange all details with them!

Thankyou for your thoughts

Just a quickie.....

Many of you have sent notes of well wishes for my daughter who has spend the better part of last week in hospital.  I want to thank you for these thoughts as it was lovely to know that many of you were thinking of me and her.

I am back on deck now and able to place orders.  In the next few days I will post a timeframe for placing orders for the Christmas period.  Remember my Christmas Card kit which I released last week.  I will be holding this open until around the last week in November and then I will close the offer - because by then, if you haven't made your cards, you are probably unlikely to do so!

I will also announce a date for any Colac and district ladies (or anyone that would like to travel), for our annual Christmas dinner.  This will be in early December, so keep an eye out for that date and mark it in your diaries.
