This ‘drop dead gorgeous’ Christmas Ornament was created by Shelli Gardner, our amazing co-founder and CEO of Stampin’ Up! I just love Shelli’s style, which I guess I describe as modern vintage! This is one of two make & takes I will be offering at the September Demonstrator’s meetings. I will be hosting 2 of these meetings at my home studio on Wednesday 26th of September at 10am and 7.30pm, and at Ursula’s studio in Rochedale on Saturday 29th September 2.30pm.
If you have seen the new Stampin’ Up! catalogues, you know your wish list is huge! As demonstrators, we get 20% discount on our purchases plus we get access to an entire team of lovely friendly demonstrators willing to share their ideas and experience. Please contact me if I can help you with any information about becoming a demonstrator and joining our next creative meeting and making this great project!
We have received so many enquiries already about this year’s Christmas Card Workshops and are incredibly excited to formally announce that bookings are now officially open. I will be attending ALL venues except for Pine Rivers Bowls Club as I shall be attending the Quota Craft Fair that same day.
If you click on the above brochure (you may need to click the download button on the top right of the Dropbox screen), you will be able to read all the details clearly! Note we have kept the cost at the same price for the past 5 years, being $65 for an entire day (10am till 4pm) of fun, friends and creativity. This is great value!
We have provided an opportunity for you to choose a wood rather than the supplied clear mount stamp, for an extra $7; as well as the opportunity to buy the coordinating ‘Framelits Die Cutting System’ for the stamp set for an additional $32, rather than the separate price later of $42.95. You do not need to choose either of these options, they are simply there for your convenience/choice.
Please book with me by email or phone 0448 896 001. Places are limited and some venues will book out quickly, so please do book in promptly to avoid disappointment.
Payment is required at the time of booking so that your stamp set, papers, sanding system and kit may be ordered.

One of the many reasons I love Stampin’ Up! is that our products are so versatile. For example, we can make ‘clean & simple’, ‘retro’, ‘antique inspired’, ‘vintage’ and ‘cute’ papercraft projects. Coordinated paper, inks, punches, cutting tools and accessories; mean that the ‘sky is the limit’. Did you know that you can also create ‘Paper Art’ using Stampin’ Up! products? From ‘Collage Backgrounds’ using sponging, inking and stamps; to ’3D Multimedia Accents’ created with paper, crystal effects and embossing; there are endless possibilities available to those willing to ‘play’, ‘experiment’ and be brave enough to make a few disasters along the way – Creativity takes Courage, after all!
Some Paper Angels Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators have been working on a Paper Art project and I thought I’d share some of the ‘Work in Progress’. Zena has created one of her now famous ‘ladies’ – this one has been dubbed ‘Aiesha’ and she is a forrest nymph, created with cardstock, paper, stamps, embossing, string, crystal effects and glitter. I am in total awe of the creative use of Stampin’ Up! products in such a unique way. We will be mounting ‘Aiesha’ on a canvas and will share the finished presentation with you soon.
Zena has also created a trio of sponged landscapes that will be mounted on a canvas. I can’t wait till the next round of Paper Angels Demonstrator Meetings at the end of the month because Zena has agreed to demonstrate her techniques! For those Paper Angels Demonstrators that are unable to attend, we will share a video with you. Another great reason to join as a demonstrator with the Paper Angels Team of Independent Demonstrators.
Ursula has also been busy creating an amazing canvas with watercolour paper and our lovely ‘Watercolour Crayons’, which are Stampin’ Up!s ‘Rolls Royce’ of colouring! As you can see, when you start experimenting, things start to get messy but it will be worth it when we can enjoy the finished project, so check back soon to see the completed canvas.
If you have been using Stampin’ Up! products to create ‘Paper Art’, we’d love to see them, so please do email any ideas you’d like to share with our Craft Classroom & Paper Angels community.

I have been in conversation with a few fellow Stampin’ Up! enthusiasts lately, who are looking at the Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Starter Kit, which is now $169 and fully customisable! It has occurred to us that August is a brilliant time to join Stampin’ Up!, because you can include so many different products from 3 different catalogues* in your Starter Kit as well as taking advantage of discounted retiring products. New demonstrators may choose $235 of retail product from the current Idea Book & Catalogue (including discounted retiring product), selected pre-order items from the NEW 2012-2013 Annual catalogue, and selected pre-order products from the NEW Holiday Catalogue*
Imagine your delight at receiving $235 retail of Stampin’ Up! products of your choice, delivered right to your door straight from Stampin’ Up! and then being able to order Stampin’ Up! products at a 20% discount. Having seen an electronic copy of the NEW Annual Catalogue, I am confident that many people will have a reaction that will resemble excitement and dread simultaneously. How is this possible? Basically ‘total excitement’ at the brilliant NEW product offerings and ‘dread’ when they think what their ‘wish list’ might add up to! Well, there is an easy answer to that – either become a discount demonstrator (preferred buyer) or do your own workshops/classes and reap the benefits of selling product – imagine self funding your hobby or even making extra money to bring into your household!
So what could be better than that? Well, I have decided for AUGUST only to GIVE AWAY my retiring Ex-Demonstration Stamp Sets to new recruits who join* New Demonstrators may choose 2 ex-demo sets from the following lists – it will be ‘first in best dressed’, so get in early to choose your 2 favourite sets for FREE in August.
Clear Mount Stamp Sets (as stamp sets are claimed, I will strike them through and change to red font))
Contempo Christmas pg 25,
Cottage Garden pg 67, Fox & Friends pg 58, Funky Four pg 58, Heard from the Heart pg 109, Inviting pg 109, Little Angel (previous Summer Mini), Notably Ornate pg 98, Pony Party pg 95, Rue Des Fleurs (previous Autumn Winter Mini), Stitched Stockings (previous Autumn Winter Mini), Style Beautiful pg 91, Sweet Cake (previous Autumn Winter Mini), Sweet Shoppe Alphabet Upper pg 115, Sweet Shoppe Alphabet Lower pg 115, Thanks for Caring (previous Summer Mini), Under the Big Top pg 33, Vintage Vogue pg 93, Welcome Christmas pg 22, You’re a Gem pg 104
Wood Mount Stamp Sets (as stamp sets are claimed, I will strike them through)
All in the Family pg 57, French Filigree pg 99, God’s Blessings pg 113, Just Perfect Alphabet pg 115, Spiced paisley (previous Autumn Winter Mini Catalogue), Many Merry Messages pg 108,
Oval All pg 96, Packed for Birthday/Dad/Baby/Mum set of 4 (previous Autumn Winter Mini Catalogue), Party this Way pg 39, Sincere Salutations pg 112, and Wonderfully Worn pg 99
PLUS, if you recruit a NEW demonstrator in August, you will receive a 6 month subscription to Stamping and Papercraft Magazine

2 FREE selected retiring ex-demo stamp sets to new demonstrators are available on a first in best dressed basis ONLY and are not available for sale during the month of August
Demonstrators who also recruit a new demonstrator, will initially receive issues 18 (6-8) and the the next 3 issues as they become available each month over the next 3 months. This subscription is limited to 15 x 6 month subscriptions, so first in best dressed!

OK, it’s that time of year when we are ushering out the old and welcoming in the new. August is the last month of the current Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue and also the LAST CHANCE to snap up retiring products (some of which are on sale) from the retired stamp & accessory list.
I thought I would help you wade through the very long accessory list by highlighting the top 7 bargains! If you are interested in these, you will need to act QUICKLY as it is a first in best dressed basis on retiring products in August and it will be no surprise that the sale items often go first. I am placing an order tonight (Thursday) as well as tomorrow (Friday) and then a couple of days after that again – the sooner your order comes to me, the better your chance of securing your favourite retiring product (you know the one you’ve been meaning to order but as yet haven’t) and/or a major bargain.
‘Nursery Nest’ Designer Series Paper is now 40% OFF and instead of the usual $18.95, you can now purchase as many packets as you like for only $11.37. This is an awesome paper and great for cardmaking and scrapbooking alike. This paper would make a great gift for a papercrafter, someone having a baby, or dare I even say it ‘wrapping paper’ for small gifts!
Can you believe this! 75% OFF these Christmas Designer Fabric Packs! Each pack includes 3 beautifully coordinated designs in an extra-wide fat quarter size, each piece being approx 68.6 x 45.7. These packs are now ONLY $4.99. Seriously this has to be the best bargain of all and I can see loads of applications, from patchwork to gifting such as covering jar lids on home made Christmas Treats! Really it’s only limited by your imagination and at this price you can afford to stock up and maybe even include them as stocking fillers in gifts for crafty friends!
Some demonstrators are expressing shock that the Crop a Dile is being retired and I’m hearing them – I use this tool all the time. I can only imagine that it is because eyelets are no longer a current trend in papercrafting at present. However, this is a tool well worth having for it’s magnificent ability to punch holes through chipboard and multiple layers of cardstock with ease! But don’t be sad it’s going, buy one NOW at 25% off Normally $54.95 this must have tool is NOW ONLY $41.21
Don’t cry – this fabulous stamp cleaner is not actually being retired, rather it is being reformatted into a larger square version. I’m guessing this is to make cleaning the larger background stamps easier. Having said that, this current model does the job and if you don’t yet own one and would rather get a discount than wait for the bigger version, now’s the time to buy one. Normally $28.95, this essential tool is now 25% off and is NOW $21.71. What a great present for a fellow stamper who doesn’t yet own one too!
Loving this ‘continuous’ border punch, which stands alone, is great as a border tucked under another layer, or also looks great with ribbon threaded through it. Unbelievably this punch is 40% OFF and instead of the normal $38.95 NOW you can order for $23.37!
Finally the Triple Layer ‘Blossom Bouquet’ Punch is also 40% OFF and instead of $44.95 you’ll pay ONLY $26.97! What a bargain when you consider that this punch actually punches 4 different flowers which either stand alone or can be layered in different colours. Enjoy!
Don’t forget, these products plus the rest of the retired list, is only available whilst stocks last. I cannot order them once they have run out OR past the 31st August! Every year, I get contacted after this date and asked if I can get something from the previous catalogue – really this is true. Sadly I cannot help these people and it makes me sad!
Please either email me you order or phone on 0448 896 001

So often you will hear Stampin’ Up! demonstrators expressing how grateful they are for the wonderful people they have had the opportunity to meet through their business, whether they be a ‘personal shopper/discount buyer demonstrator’, ‘hobby demonstrator’ or ‘career demonstrator’. I am grateful for each and every person that I have had the opportunity to meet, including the very inspiring Renee who has created this gorgeous double layout featuring Stampin’ Up!s ‘Country Club Simply Scrappin Kit’. I love heaps of things about this layout but I especially love the extra special touch of the pearl on the ‘Blue Denim Jean Ribbon’ – wish I’d thought of that! Still, I now have the next best thing – an idea to inspire me! thanks so much Renee for sharing your lovely work. I have 2 more layouts of Renee’s that I’ll be sharing with you in the next few days so tune back again!
