World Card Making Day 2020

Hello Stampers

Well here we are again at this time of year and World Card Making Day is fast approaching 😃 

This year of 2020 is not "Normal" as we all know it and World Card Making Day falls on a long weekend here in Queensland.  So I will be changing it up somewhat and celebrating "World Card Making Weekend"  but on the following weekend 😁

Current COVID-19 Restrictions here in Queensland @ 31 August 2020 are as follows:-
As there are limited venues available I will be holding an Open House Event at my own home here on the Sunshine Coast over 2 1/2 days.  Bookings will be absolutely essential to keep my numbers within my limits.  Watch my Blog, Facebook Page "Stamping Daze with Janette" and Website Calendar here for any updates closer to the date.

We will still be having all the fun that World Card Making Days have brought in the past, just in the comfort of my own home and for a couple more days, and this will mean more funds to be raised for the National Heart Foundation of Australia. 👏 As I lost my husband at a very young age to Heart Disease this Foundation means a lot to me.

I will be opening my doors on Friday 9th October 2020  from 2:00 - 4:30
Saturday 10th October from 9:00 - 4:00
Sunday 11th October from 9:00 - 4:00

COST:    $50.00 for 1 Full Day
                 $75.00 for 2 Full Days
              $20.00 for half a day

2 1/2 days full of crafting fun, Make and Takes, Lucky Door Prize and other give aways.  
Come along and learn some new techniques or just see what all the fun of Stamping and Card Making is all about. I am sure you will fall in love with it and all the beautiful Stampin' Up! ® products we use.

Lunch and Morning and Afternoon Teas will be supplied and all materials to complete your projects. Some adhesives will be supplied but extras will be available for sale on the days.

It will have a "Christmas Theme" mainly but a few other occasion projects will be thrown in as well.  If you can wear Christmas colours there will be a few random prizes for the best bright Christmas attire 🎅🎄

Once again I will also be asking for 1 card from each attendee on each day to be donated to one of my chosen Charities - Wishlist Sunshine Coast Health Foundation - Sunshine Coast University Hospital; Ronald McDonald House Charities South  East Queensland; Neo-Natal Intensive Care Unit Royal Brisbane Hospital.

So I would love you to come celebrate with me 😊😊

Happy Stamping

More Stamping Fun!

 Hello Stampers

Here we are at the end of August!!!  This means here in Australia it will soon be the start of Spring and everything sunny and floral.  I just love Spring.  It is my favourite season - not too hot for my early morning walks around this beautiful Sunshine Coast where I live and not too cold so I spend too much time sleeping in and not using all my crafting time 😁😁

It also means that it is nearly September and do we have some exciting new things happening in September!!!

Firstly, from 1 September,  you will be able to get your hot little hands on our very own new Stampin' Up! Cut & Emboss Machine

I am just loving mine.  As a Demonstrator I am lucky to be able to purchase and play with new products a little bit earlier than all my Customers.  So I have mine and I really can say it has everything you need in a Cut & Emboss Machine and so compact. So if you are a crafter and have been looking for a top quality Cut & Emboss Machine then check this one out and pop on over to my Website Shop here  to add it to your Shopping Cart.

Due to the machine’s solid steel construction frame, the tightness and effectiveness of the cutting and embossing will remain intact over time. The precise pressure designed and engineered into the machine results in crisp, clean, and precise cutting along with beautifully detailed embossing. It also has a small footprint, ergonomic carrying handle, easy rotating handle for comfort in use, and strategically designed platform for superior control. The best part is that all this value is offered at a great price!

Also for the month of September if you have been thinking about joining my Team of fun "Sunburst Stampers" now is the time to ask me more and join the Stampin' Up! Family.

For the cost of the Starter Kit of $169.00 you get to choose and products up to that value + you receive a bunch of free goodies as well:-

  • Cardstock pieces to make 16 cards - Granny Apple Green Card + Coastal Cabana Card
  • 1 x Pack of Rhinestone Basic Jewels
  • "So Much Love" Stamp Set
  • "Queen Anne's Lace" Stamp Set

You will then be able to purchase your new Cut & Emboss Machine at a discount!!!  No other obligations of holding parties or workshops, just enjoying the perks and discounts of being a Demonstrator.

If you are in Brisbane or on the Sunshine Coast you also will have the opportunity in joining in some great Team Fun Days held on a regular basis.  We had one just yesterday and it was a fabulous day

We made 11 cards

and a beautiful Christmas Sampler which I finished the following day at home and now just need to find a frame to pop it into

All using all the fun Christmas products in the current "Handmade For You" Mini Catalogue.

Happy Stamping Everyone

Gorgeous Posies

Hello Stampers

Aren't these "Gorgeous Posies" Cards just the sweetest???  This is from the "Gorgeous Posies" Project Kit on page 8 of the new Annual 2020/2021 Catalogue and I just love them and really would love to share them with you.  The kit makes 16 cards but there are always a few elements always left over so we will create 4 more cards using some of these.

So I thought if you live in Australia we could do a class together with this kit. Have a look at my Facebook Live Video showing you just how nice all the cards are.  Check it out here

  Here is how it works:-

  1. The Class Cost will be $95.00 and this includes the following - Gorgeous Posies Project Kit + Gorgeous Posies Stamp Set + 1 x Pack of Mini Glue Dots + 1 x Pack Stampin' Dimensionals + 1 x Stampin' Seal + additional kits for 4 more cards. So all up you will make 20 cards + the stamp set to use over and over again as well as a few extra little bits left over to use on other projects too.  That is $120.00 value for $95.00.
  2. If you buy the "Gorgeous Posies" Project Kit and the Stamp Set online at my shop they will be delivered direct to you and then for an additional $6.00  I will send you the other goodies to complete the projects. 
  3. You just say "Yes" I am in and once payment is received I will post your kit containing all goodies needed for the class.  You will just need your own inks to complete the projects
  4. If you wish to have guidance putting the cards together I can set up a ZOOM Meeting and help you through them all.   I will send you the ZOOM Meeting details to pop in and follow along with my instructions.  All you have to do is download the Free ZOOM App on your device beforehand and then you will be ready to go 👍😊
  5. I am anticipating a date in August for the Zoom Crafting Time.  Check my Website Calendar for any updates.
  6. Then after the class you have the Stamp Set to create many many more cards of your own
If you do purchase the "Gorgeous Posies" Project Kit #153131 and the matching Stamp Set #153289 at my Online Store here and ensure my Hostess Code for July - FSU9P7YU - has been added,  you will also receive a free collection of Christmas Colours Cardstock as a Thank You from me

Happy Stamping

Welcome to June!

Hello Stampers

Hope you are all well and safe and enjoying the slow lifting of self-isolating restrictions.  Here where I live on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland we have not had any new cases for quite some time so I have been enjoying getting out with 5 and now 10 friends and having a coffee and cake in a nice park somewhere.  Our winter days here are just so sunny and glorious.

Tomorrow is going to be one very exciting day!  The new 2020/2021 Annual Stampin' Up! Catalogue will begin 👏😀😀.  If you are in Australia and would love a hard copy of the Catalogue to read through over and over just email me here and I will get one in the mail to you straight away.

There are lots and lots of gorgeous things in this Catalogue as well as tons of inspirational ideas.

Also just for the month of June there are a couple of great promotions too.  

Grab a few of your crafty friends together and check out the new Catalogue.  Pop all your orders together and be rewarded extra during June.  With a qualifying order of $400.00 you will receive an extra $40.00 to spend on anything else you like.  So you will receive $40.00 + another $40.00 to spend on free goodies.  If your own wish list adds up to this amount then you get the additional rewards to yourself.  Gotta love freebies.

Join my fun Team of Sunburst Stampers and receive more extra free goodies

 Not only will you get a Starter Kit—already a great value at $169 for $235 worth of products—but for a limited time, you can select any stamp/tool bundle from the new 2020–2021 Annual Catalogue for FREE. There could not be a better time to join my team.  Would like more details just email me here.

A few more extra features being added to my Website from 3 June and Stampin' Up! are wanting your feedback to hear what you think and help make it even better.  So I encourage you all to tell us what you think about how it is all working.  Check it all out here.

A new Stamp Set featured in the new Catalogue is called "Celebrating Sunflowers"  I just love this set and it also comes with matching Dies!  I just had to have a play with my set this week and also thought I would share a little tip with you all for when you purchase your set 😉

I used the "Double Time" Stamping Technique on my card

And the little hint is for when you are putting you rubber stamps together I keep mine in the case nested in their original spots.  The large Sunflower has lots of curvy petals and is quite difficult finding just the right spot to put it back in so add a small mark with a Sharpie pen on both the image and the rubber where it fits then you will always line them up and pop it back in first go 😄😄

Happy Stamping everyone

Exciting News!!

Hello Stampers

I do hope you are all keeping well and busy during these times of self-isolation.  The world is certainly experiencing some trouble times right now and I am just so thankful for my good health, wonderful family and friends and my crafting.  Stampin' Up! is really looking after us as Demonstrators and our product deliveries have not been affected too much here in Australia.  I thank all the wonderful workers at our Sydney Distribution Centre who keep those all important deliveries happening so quickly! 👏👏👏  I think a special card will be making its way to them real soon 😀

Meanwhile I have lots and lots of birthdays coming up to create for as well as our new 2020/2021 Annual Catalogue coming out real soon. If you are one of my valued regular customers watch your letterbox for a special delivery some time in the next week 😉

Another very exciting event in my life is the birth of my Online eCommerce Store - WGs Creations.

Due to all our face-to-face activities being put on hold for a wee while I am expanding all my Stamping Avenues to go online.  I had been holding Market Stalls every couple of months to sell my excess card creations and they have now been cancelled so I have created WGs Creations.  Check it out here 

I mentioned a new 2020/2021 Annual Catalogue...so that means a lot of items will be retiring from the two current Catalogues - the 2019/2020 Annual Catalogue and the January - June 2020 Mini Catalogue so you need to check out the Retiring List and grab those "Have-to-Have" goodies before they are gone.  Check them all out here.

Last-Chance Products

Another fun new item that Stampin' Up! has just launched is the COVID-19 Giveback Digital "Share the Sunshine" PDF Downloads.  You can purchase the 15 Pages of Images for just US$12.00 (Approx A$19.00) and use them with all your other stamping supplies to create fun and uplifting cards to send to friends and loved ones.  All proceeds are donated to a choice of 2 charities which you designate at the time of purchase.  So a really good cause.

I have created 2 cards to send to a couple of friends just to keep their spirits up and say I am thinking of them 😀  I have also used some of the Sale-a-Bration free Designer Series Paper that I still have and great to fussy cut out the individual flowers.

Happy Stamping Everyone
