OMG! Guess What It’s Time For?

It’s time for the Amazing new Occasions Catalogue AND Sale-A-Bration!

Happy Days ahead and what a great start to the new year.


There are so many great items in this one. There are loads of the wonderful money saving bundles that we all love and stamps and accessories for every occasion you can possibly imagine!

If you want to see the possibilities to add to your collection, click the image above or on the left to download a pdf copy. If you want your very own personal copy, contact me and I’ll send you one.

The Occasions Catalogue continues on until 31st May but get in fast to make sure you secure you’re “favourites” as some items may sell out.



Our wonderful annual Sale-A-Bration goes until the 31st March. How does it work?

Buy what you love and be rewarded. For every $90 that you spend (excluding postage), from either the current Annual Catalogue or the new Occasions Catalogue, you can choose a FREE Sale-A-Bration product from the Sale-A-Bration brochure. If you host a party with at least $400 in sales, you’ll earn even more Stampin’ Rewards. If you want to join my team, for only $169, you can choose another $60 of FREE products for your kit! It doesn’t get any better than Sale-A-Bration.

I just love Stampin’ Up! and their wonderful products! I loved soooo many of the new products I couldn’t show just one, or two, or even three… 😉


How cute is this stamp set? I love colouring with the blendabilities so this one was right up my alley 🙂 I had so much fun with this card.

Blendabilities: Skin Tone Assortment, Old Olive, Daffodil Delight, Coastal Cabana and Crumb Cake
Card Stock: Daffodil Delight and Whisper White
Punches: Word Window
Other: Stampin’ Sponges and Dimensionals


I obviously felt like sponging the sky for these cards 😉 This is the new Moon Lake stamp set and I thought a really simple picture card for the guys – they can be so hard to make a card for.

Stamp Set: Moon Lake and Something to Say
Ink: Soft Sky, Old Olive and Memento

Card Stock: Soft Sky, Old Olive and Whisper White
Word Window, Modern Label, Scallop Oval and Envelope Punch Board for corners

Here’s another stamp from the new Moon Lake stamp set. I just love this for simplicity. I also love the Circle Card Thinlits.

Stamp Set: Moon Lake and Butterfly Basics
Ink: Soft Sky, Crumb Cake, Night of Navy and Memento
Blendabilities: Old Olive, Coastal Cabana, Melon Mambo, Wisteria Wonder, Cherry Cobbler, Daffodil Delight and Crumb Cake

For a really quick but effective Valentines Day Card I used the extremely versatile Sheltering Tree stamp set.

Stamp Set: Sheltering Tree
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Real Red, and Crumb Cake
Card Stock: Soft Sky, Real Red, Silver Glimmer Paper and Whisper White
Punches: Heart from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack
Other: Dimensionals


Of course it wouldn’t be a contribution from me if it didn’t have a 3D project. Even a small one 😉 It’s actually my name tag from the recent Party Time event in Brisbane. I’m a huge fan of the Lotus Blossom stamp set that’s FREE in the SAB catalogue.

Stamp Set: Lotus Blossom
Ink: Hello Honey, Blackberry Bliss, Lost Lagoon and Tangelo Twist
Card Stock: Silver Glimmer Paper and Whisper White
DSP: Irresistibly Yours Specialty Designer Series Paper
Punches: Bow Builder Punch

Cards for a Cure – Raising funds for Breast Cancer

I just love Stampin’ Up! and all they do! They are continually coming up with ideas to help others and make the world a better place!

Stampin’ Up! have partnered with the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) and are donating $10 of every pack of Ready. Set. Send. cards sold to the National Breast Cancer Foundation.


The Ready. Set. Send. card kit is a pack of 10 handmade cards (5 Birthday cards, 5 Thank You cards, plus 10 envelopes), all for just $19! How wonderful is that! This pack is perfect for those who aren’t card makers or crafty, it’s so simple, just grab a card, write in it, pop it in the envelope and you’re all set to send a card that gives back!

To purchase and help out a worthy cause, you can either contact me or order your cards online from my shop simply by clicking on the flyer above.

Thank you for your support
