World Cardmaking Day - Join me

Join me for some Live crafting fun on my Facebook Page on Saturday 2nd October at 2pm to celebrate World Cardmaking Day. It’s so awesome that us cardmakers have a day especially for us – like we needed an excuse to craft!

I’ve got a few cards to share with you and on one of the cards I’ll be sharing the measurements over on my Facebook Page prior to the event, so we can craft together. I will also be having a shopping special tomorrow, especially for World Cardmaking Day, which you won’t want to miss.

Can’t wait to craft with you tomorrow.

Introducing Stamping Flair Loyalty Points

Stamping Flair Rewards

I am very excited to bring to you a brand new Customer Loyalty program. This will replace the gift voucher system I had last year. I love rewarding my customers and would love to thank you for your support. 

How Does it Work?

  • For each $50 that you spend on product or order from my online store (ex-shipping), you will earn one Reward Point  
  • When you have earned 10 Reward Points you will get to choose a FREE product valued upto $40

You can start earning points during Sale-A-Bration and earn Sale-A-Bration rewards as well. So this is a great opportunity to stock up on those supplies for the new year. 

You will receive a Loyalty Card so you can keep track of your spending and know exactly when you can go on your free shopping spree on me.

Thank you for your continued support.





December Updates

Hi Friends,

Hope you all have enjoyed a lovely Christmas, celebrating with your loved ones. I had such a nice celebration with Adrian and Cassidy and it really was family time for us. 

The weeks leading up to Christmas have been hectic so I’m sharing a few updates in this one post. 

Holiday Catalogue Carryover Products

This year, Stampin’ Up! are trying something different.

My First Market

Bec and I held a market stall together at Carols by the Bay in Hastings. As it was my first market it was a totally new experience for me. We had a bit of cold wind to contend with on the day but it was such a fun experience to share with my friend. So keep a look out for us in the new year as we plan on attending more markets.

Carols by the Bay 2019, Hastings

We had lots of gift items and our Curvy Keepsake boxes filled with M&M packets were a hit. The winner of our raffle was Pam and I’m sure she’ll get lots of enjoyment from all the goodies included in the hamper. Congratulations Pam.

I’m getting back to cleaning up my craft room so I can open up all my goodies from the Mini Catalogue and have a good crafting session with them.

Purple Posy and Delicata Ink Updates from Stampin’ Up!

Purple Posy Ink To Be Discontinued

Despite our efforts to resolve issues with Purple Posy ink, we have learned that the ink colour is still shifting over time. This means that the colour is coordinating more loosely than we typically allow with our colours. Due to these ongoing challenges, we have decided to discontinue Purple Posy classic ink. After 6 November 2019, the following items will no longer be available to purchase:

  • Purple Posy Classic Stampin’ Pad (item 150084)
  • Purple Posy Classic Stampin’ Ink Refill (item 150091)
  • 2019–2021 In Color Classic Stampin’ Pad Assortment (item 150087)

However we have other Purple Posy items that are still available 

All of Stampin’ Up!’s exclusive ink colours are run through a vigorous series of tests to get ahead of challenges like this, and to ensure colours are accurate and meet our standards of coordination. Purple Posy did pass regular testing standards in time-simulating ovens, but we have now identified that it fell short when it came to actual time passing. The colour begins to shift once the ink has rested in the ink pad for about six weeks.

It is rare for Stampin’ Up! or our ink manufacturer to have such persistent issues with ink; Purple Posy has certainly been an anomaly. We completed full testing on 11 distinct batches of Purple Posy Classic Stampin’ Ink before releasing the current version. We are now confident that no additional efforts would uphold our coordination needs over time. We appreciate your patience as we have worked through this manufacturing difficulty and regret that we are unable to share better news.

Delicata® Ink Pads and Refills Available While Supplies Last

We have received shipments of Delicata ink pads and refills (see item list below), and they will be available to purchase before the end for the 2019 holiday catalogue sales period (2 January 2020).

  • Celestial Copper Ink Pad (item 150707)
  • Celestial Copper Ink Refill (item 150708)
  • Golden Glitz Ink Pad (item 150711)
  • Golden Glitz Ink Refill (item 150712)
  • Silvery Shimmer Ink Pad (item 150709)
  • Silvery Shimmer Ink Refill (item 150710)

Due to amount of time it takes to receive shipments of these items, they will not be carrying over into the 2020 occasions catalogue. Additionally, when inventory for each item is depleted, that item will be turned off.


All orders over $50 using the monthly Host Code receive a $10 gift voucher for the month. Use Host Code for orders under $250. If your order is above $250 you are entitled to your own Stampin’ Rewards so don’t use the Host Code instead you can select your own rewards and you will also receive my gift voucher.

Please contact me with any queries.

Getting Ready for the Holiday Catalogue

There are so many beautiful things in the holiday catalogue. Here are the numbers!
