NEW Stampin' Up Catalogue, Blendabilities,Project Life

Like many other Australian demonstrators, I placed my pre-order for the new catalogue last weekend. We then spend a lot of time watching for a mailing advice (and discussing it online) while tracking our box's journey to our doors. Since a long weekend was approaching, everyone had fingers crossed for delivery before the weekend because ....
1. There would be time to play and admire the new colours and stamps
2. If it didn't arrive, it would be Tuesday before it was delivered.

I was one of the lucky ones!!!!!

I'm planning a catalogue launch for Friday 4th July.

Just a casual drop-in where you'll be able to collect a sample bag and your new catalogue. I'll have some stamping stations set up too, so you can try the NEW In Colors. Maybe you'd like to try the new Framelits out on the Big Shot. I'd love to hear which your favourite stamp sets are, or even which you don't really like.

Special Offer

The catalogue goes 'LIVE' on 1st July. There is an extra incentive for you to order through me, either at the Launch or online in the first 10 days of July, and you can participate in this even if you're not attending. I will announce the hostess code on July 1st, and that needs to be entered at the bottom left of your online order. For every $50 ordered, you will earn a small gift from me plus the opportunity to choose your own hostess set, provided the orders reach the minimum required for  bonus Hostess Dollars. If you think you might need a catalogue earlier than 4th July, to work on your wish list, call me 0417 500 681 to arrange pick up from South Morang, VIC (I'm home this weekend) or if you are fairly local to Thomastown or South Morang, I may be able to drop it to you. You can also email me to make contact, and if you are just too far, I can have one mailed to you for $10.

 Join Stampin' Up! 

Maybe you've thought about joining up, even for the 20% discount on your personal purchases. Until the end of June, you can do that in two ways, the special joining offer of $90 of product for $85. You also receive business supplies & 8 catalogues, just in case you are thinking of really giving it a go. An added bonus, you can order the new products immediately, and did you know that if you make a $300 order in your first 45 days after signing up, you will get a 30% discount, plus hostess benefits.

I'd love you to welcome you to my team, and so long as you live somewhere in Australia, you can join me. We participate in online forums where we encourage each other and share ideas and friendship.

You can also join at the usual $169, receiving $235 of product of your choice, a business pack and catalogues with no shipping costs. Both options show up when you click here.


For years customers have been asking for alcohol-based markers and finally Stampin' Up! have added those to the range too. They have retained the usual Stampin' Write Markers too, so you can still watercolour with the Aquapainter, and use the Blender Pen too. Blendabilities are 'in addition to'. They are in all the great Stampin' Up! colours, and a plus is the number of items which can be coloured with alcohol-based markers.

I took this shot of the screen during Convention to remind me of the crafting possibilities but it really doesn't end there. Almost anything can be coloured with Blendabilities.
At my Catalogue Launch, there will be opportunities to colour some of the new stamp images too.

Project Life

Do you like scrapbooking, memory collecting or do you just have boxes of photos?

I began making scrapbooks more than 10 years ago, and bought magazines to help with inspiration. There wasn't much happening online then! My favourite mag. came from the States, Creating Keepsakes, and one of its main designers was a young Becky Higgins. We shared her memories of early married life and the birth of her three children. Eventually, she moved on from the magazine to develop her own concept for Memory Keeping - Project Life. 

The news that Becky Higgins had teamed with Stampin' Up! to produce a Project Life collection using Stampin' Up! colour ranges was greeted enthusiastically by many of us. We had felt that there was very little left in the catalogue for scrapbooking. Of course, this company is primarily a promoter of stamps, but often scrapbooking and stamping complement each other anyway.

So,,,, we have Project Life Albums, journaling cards, Framelits and stamps! WOO HOOOOO!!!!

I have bought basically what we had available for pre-order (no album till 1st July) but I have put together 2 pages of Convention, now I need to print some more photos! You can take a look at the range online shortly because it is available for you to purchase the same as I have from the 10th June. Check out my online store for that. It isn't listed yet so I can't do a direct link for you at the moment.

I will close for now, as I have a lot of stamps to mount before I can play.

I'd love to hear from you
