Hello Stampers

A quick mention today about our fabulous new Stamparatus ( Stamp positioning Tool ) which will be readily available in our next Annual Catalogue beginning 1 June 2018.

"That is a long time to wait" I hear you say 😕  Well, you still have time to Reserve your very own Stamparatus now and receive it in the mail March/April 2018.  

I have ordered mine and am doing excited little squeels with anticipation 😁😍.  I can't wait to show all my class attendees how easy it makes stamping.

To order yours just go on to my website here , go to "Shop Now" , Reserve your Stamparatus and create your own account.  No payment is required at time of Reservation although you will need to add a credit card for payment at time of delivery in March/April 2018.

You can cancel your Reservation beforehand if needed and no penalty payment will be processed.

You only have till 31 December to Reserve your Stamparatus, otherwise you will have to wait till June 2018.

Check out what it can do here:-


I hope you all had a relaxing and fun time with friends and family over the Christmas break.  I spent time with my daughter and Son-in-Law and 2 beautiful grand babies Peri who is 3 and makes Christmas such a magical time and little Oliver who is 11 months and just loved all the wrapping paper 😍😀

Hope 2018 is a happy healthy safe and craft-filled year for you all and I look forward to sharing some fun new cards and creations from our new up-coming Occasions Catalogue beginning 3 January 2018.  If you haven't already got your very own copy in your hot little hands and you live in Australia email me here and I will shoot one to you in the mail straight away.

Happy stamping everyone

Playing with new toys!!!

Hello Stampers

Now that I have my Christmas cards done and sent and presents nearly all wrapped and gift cards made I can now play with some of my new goodies that I am so lucky to get my hands on before everyone else 😉 I love being part of the Stampin' Up! Family. You could join in all the fun too with me.  There are some really great incentives coming up soon in January so if you are given some 💰 for Christmas you could put that towards your Starter Kit and then get all your own SU goodies at a discount.  If you are in Australia check my website here in January for more info and email me here to help you get started. I would love you to join my Team of Sunburst Stampers 🌞😃

So now to our new colourful and exciting 2018 Occasions Catalogue which is up and running from January 3rd 2018

and with this beautiful mini Catalogue comes Sale-a-Bration!!!!  That means lots of free goodies to earn from 3 January till 31 March 2018.

If you would like copies of these new brochures just flick me a quick email and I will get them in the post to you (anywhere in Australia) straight away.  If you are one of my lovely regular customers yours are on their way to you this week ready to read over and over on your lazy Christmas days.

So yes, I have read my copies from front to back and back to front many times now and I really love everything in the "Picture Perfect Party" Suite.  The Designer Series Paper Stack is going to be used up super quick!!!!

I made a birthday card for a very good friend who has a bit of a "weird" sense of humour so I used this DSP and a new Stamp Set called "Birthday Wit".  It suits him to a Tee. I also used a "Confetti" type of DSP from this stack to add to the envelope.

I also have acquired a couple of the free stamp sets on offer in the new 
Sale-a-Bration 2018 Brochure and am quite liking the "Party Pandas".  A lovely friend has her birthday tomorrow so I hope she doesn't read this before she opens her mail 😜

I did use some retired Designer Series Paper and washi tape on this one but also used my new Stampin' Blends to do a bit of colouring on the balloon.

The little mini birthday cakes on the envelope are from the current Hostess Set from the Annual Catalogue called "In the City".  This is such a versatile set.

2018 is going to be one fun year 😁😁

Happy stamping everyone

Happy Christmas wishes to all!

Hello Stampers

Well it is only 16 days till Christmas!!  Aaaaghh! where has that time gone??  I haven't finished my Christmas preparation yet 😟   Every year I say to myself I have to be more organised and be Christmas always sneaks up on me.

Most of my 40 + Christmas Cards have gone out so that is one thing done.  I made a few Christian Christmas Cards this year and I really loved the "Night in Bethlehem" set which is carrying over after the end of this Holiday Catalogue so am very happy about that.  Here is one that I made for a very good friend

 and another.....

So with the end of the latest Holiday Catalogue on 02 January 2018 comes the Retirement List of all those items that will not be returning so if there is anything you have on your Wish List and have not yet got now is the time to pick them up before they are gone. Just click here  to see the whole list.

Also if you shop online with me during the month of December please remember to add my Hostess Code DB67NJTJ to get an extra free gift from me.  You will also need to record your address so that I know where to post the goodies to 👍😃

I have been doing a little bit of home decorating lately also and my Bestie's husband put together this hat rack for me.  We saw something similar during our travels through the Hunter Valley and the Shoal Bay Region and he thought he could whip something up himself.  He did a fabulous job and I added the feature tiles.  I looked everywhere for fancy tiles to add to the rack but, apparently, that is so 1970's 😀 (my era totally)  and they are not available anymore.  So thinking cap on and I really love the "Year of Cheer" Specialty Designer Series Paper so I thought I must use that.  I found some slate tiles in my local Spotlight Store.  I coloured squares of the DSP with my foam roller and Dapper Denim.  This is to match the colour scheme in my lounge room. I then added these to the slate tiles with Hodge Podge and walah!!!!!  They turned out perfect.  

So Stampin' Up! is not just for card making and scrapbooking but Interior Decorating as well.

Enjoy the holidays, stay safe everyone and keep on card making 💟😉
Happy stamping
