Sneak Peek - Something New!!

Today I had planned to share some cards I've been making using retired goodies, as this will be my last chance to use them.

But I have to admit I'm one of those demos who has to have new things and even though I'm sad to see stamps, colours, paper and other bits and pieces retire, I'm never sad enough to hold onto any of them as I know I will always reach for my new goodies every time!

So today is no exception to that. I have been itching to use my washi tape that came in the This and That Bundle, oh and even though you can't get the items as a "bundle" now, they are still available to buy separately. You don't have to wait for the new catty to buy them!!

You might also notice I used a new, and probably a favourite, stamp set that we got at convention called Gorgeous Grunge. This set is how I made all the great paint splatter effect you can see in the corners. I just love how easy it was to "grunge" up the card in minutes. Oh and who doesn't love the washi tape!!! I mean, honestly, have you tried this stuff? Its awesome and I sooo hope we get more of it... LOTS more please!!!

So that's all the sneaks for today. I'm sitting waiting very (un) patiently for my big brown box of goodies to arrive so I can start sharing more great cards using stamps from our Awesome new catalogue!!

Have Fun,

Oh Hello...

Am I the only one who speaks in the voice of the late great Kenneth Williams when saying the name of this set?!?!? I always follow it up in my head with "Oh do Behave" lol

Anyway back to the card. I had only just ordered the "Oh Hello" stamps and Oval framelits bundle and felt terrible that is had taken me so long to buy it. After all, it has been in the seasonal catty, which actually ends in a few weeks. So thought I would make a mends and use it straight away and this is what I came up with!!

Gorgeous isn't it!! Ok it's not totally my creation, I CASED it from a pin I saw on Pinterest. It's from the talented Silke Ledlow. You can find the original right HERE over on her page at My Life.

These beautiful cards will be my customer Thank You cards for this month. Hope they like them as much as I do!!

Have Fun,

Stamps - Oh Hello
Ink - Crumb Cake and Early Espresso
Cardstock - Very Vanilla and Epic Day DSP
Other - Oval Framelits, Boho Blossom punch, Calypso Coral Ribbon (SAB) and Pearls

Best of... and Single Stamps Promotions!!!

I'm telling you, things are really revving up at the South Pacific head office. Not only did we have the Retirement list start this weekend but we now have not one, but TWO new Stampin' Up promotions starting today!!!

BEST OF... 25 YEARS!! - Promotion

As part of our 25-year anniversary celebration, we're bringing back some of our favourite stamp images from the last quarter century and combining them into five sets, which will release-one set per month-until April 2014. Even better, along with some great classic images, each "Best of" set will also include a never-before-seen image!
Some things to remember:
  • All Best of stamp sets will include 3-5 images, including a never-before seen image, and will be priced at $25.95AUS ($31.95NZD).
  • While we are releasing just one Best of stamp set per month (with a new theme each month) until October, all of the Best of sets will be available until April 2014.
  • A new flyer will be released every month for each new Best of set.
  • All Best of stamp sets are available in Clear-Mount only.
  • The stamp images may be sized differently from the original stamp sets.


A few months ago we were asked what we thought of the idea of being able to buy single stamps instead of a whole set!!! Well the feedback was so positive that from now until 31 August 2013 (or while supplies last) we're excited to offer you five single-image stamps for you to choose from!

  • Single stamps can be ordered in my online store
  • These won't be sent in our typical cases or packaging; they'll be packaged in cello bags. If you'd like a case for your stamp, you can buy our Clear-Mount Stamp Cases that come in packs of four.
  • This offer is available for clear-mount stamps only.
  • The stamps won't come with a Clear-Mount Block, and you'll need to purchase a block separately if you don't already have one. The recommended block sizes can be found on the flyer.
  • There's no limit on how many stamps you can purchase.
  • These stamps are only available through 31 August 2013, so get them while you can!
So what are you waiting for, while your in my online store ordering you retirement goodies, why not add one of these promotions to your shopping basket!!

Have Fun,
