Happy 25th Anniversary Stampin’ Up!

October 1, 2013

Best of Birthdays

This month, Stampin’ Up! is really celebrating our 25th anniversary! There are a couple of really good announcements to make – you might want to keep your eyes open around the 7th…. just saying 😉

But back to right now – this month’s “Best of” stamp set is all about birthdays. Awesome 🙂 Click here to shop for this and other fun goodies in my online shop.

The cost of this – and any of the other “Best of” stamp sets – is just $31.95 plus shipping. And just because this particular set is being released today, it doesn’t mean you’ve missed out on any of the other fabulous “Best of” sets – they will be around as long as there is stock until April 2014.  So don’t delay – get your order in for this and the previous sets before the stock runs out.

It’s here! And it is so VERY pretty!!

Single stamps – for a limited time

June 5, 2013

single stamps


A few months ago Stampin’ Up! asked their North American Facebook friends what they thought of the idea of being able to buy single stamps instead of a whole set. The response was so positive that they started experimenting with it in the North American Market. The experiment has been successful—so successful that Stampin’ Up! decided to try it out here in NZ too!

From now until 31 August 2013 (or while supplies last) I’m excited to offer you five single-image stamps to choose from!

You’ll find them in my Online Shop here (or link over there —> on the right!) – or, send me an email to let me know if you only want to snag one or two of these lovlies and I’ll combine an order on 25 June. If you are shopping online with me, be sure to check out the retired items while you’re there…. these will no longer be available after 30 June – or while stocks last!!

Celebrating 25 Years of Stampin’ Up!

June 4, 2013

25 years

This year Stampin’ Up! is going all out to celebrate it’s 25th Anniversary.  And that means there’s a lot of promotions going on right now! I’ll try to keep up to date with the happenings here – but if you have any questions – just ask!!

As well as the updates I’ll give here and over on my facebook page, there is the “Last Chance” items that are available only until the end of this month as we prepare to say farewell to our current catalogue. For the up-to-date info on the retired items, I would recommend clicking on my Stampin’ Up! site (“Shop Now” link on the right –>) as that will be updated as items sell out. Yes, as always, retiring items are only available until the end of the month – or while stocks last. Go now and order online in my shop to secure the items for yourself before they disappear!!

And on to the first of the anniversary items…. Welcome to the “Best of” series!

For our 25-year anniversary, we’re bringing back some
of our favourite stamp images from the last quarter century
and combining them into 11 sets, which will release—one set
per month—through April 2014. Even better, along
with some great classic images, each “Best of” set will
also include a never-before-seen image!

Colour Refresh

April 19, 2013

In 2010 when Stampin’ Up! announced the big Colour Renovation, they shared plans for colour refreshes every three or so years. This was to keep our colours on trend and fresh. Well, it’s been three years, and Stampin’ Up! has announced that ten new colours will be making their way into the core colours. Most are returning in-colours that have become firm favourites. I think when you see the list, you’ll love them as much as I do – I am SO happy to see Blushing Bride return!


Well Hello!

April 18, 2013
It's been a while!

It’s been a while!

It’s rather embarrassing at how long it’s been since I last popped on here…. eeek! Work and family commitments have meant next to no time for updating my blog.

I’ve just put together my first newsletter for quite some time too. Why the flurry?? Well, Stampin’ Up! have been making all sorts of fabulous announcements so I figured it really was time I got tapping away on the laptop and share some of these with you.

Rather than make a super long blog post right now, I’ll add an announcement every day or two here or on my facebook page – hopefully both! And my Stampin’ Up! page should also capture all my updates as well.

So as well as finding me here, you can also find me on:
Stampin’ Up! page:

On my Stampin’ Up! page, you’ll find a ton of information. The latest promotions, updates that mirror my facebook or this blog’s updates. And NOW…. my online store! Yesss! You can shop in your PJs 24/7 🙂
