Getting ready for the New Idea Book and Catalogue

At the beginning of every new catalogue many customers complain to me that their Wish Lists are as long as their arms. Spare a thought then for the poor Stampin'Up demonstrators who will have a wish list at least twice as long as everyone else! (Lucky for us we get a discount or it wouldn't bear thinking about) I have had a Sneak Peek of the new catalogue (due out for Customers on September 1st) and it is just GORGEOUS!!! I am planning a launch night on the 15th September but have to sadly tell you that it is full.. however with so many people wishing to attend I have decided to run a second launch at my home earlier on the same day (same 3 projects) so if a day launch suits you, please consider attending. Start time will be 11am and there will be lunch supplied. You will also receive your own copy of the new catalogue (rrp $12.95). The total cost to you is only $20!!!

So in preparation for the Wish List to end all Wish Lists I recently covered a clipboard in Designer Series Paper and decorated it with ribbons and accessories. It was a really fun project to make... and I can tell you that I will put it to good use!

I hope you enjoy it too!

To see the full list of discontinuing products, click here

The card at the top of this post is made with the Blooming with Beauty stamp set... and it is one of the items being discontinued. Its also 25% off! This is one of the cards we made in this month's watercolouring class... it was my favourite. I will miss the blues that are retiring this year... especially Brocade Blue which was always my favourite blue in the range. Having said that, I think the introduction of Marina Mist will help to make up for it! And Im so glad that Baja Breeze is staying. ;-) Can't wait for all the changes to happen now... I've started to reorganize my cardstock and ink supplies as we get ready for the new palettes, and the colours look fantastic together.

I hope you enjoy the card. xx

Discounted products this month

I am sure you all know now that the 2010 Retired List is out and items are disappearing fast - espcially the A4 cardstock is running out the door. Already we have sold out completely of the following items, and they are no longer available:

Close to Cocoa A4 Cardstock
Sahara Sand A4 Cardstock
Sweet Slumber Specialty paper

To view the list click here

When you look at the list you will notice that some items are discounted and some are not. I am guessing that this has to do with Stock levels. Every year I have people ask me "Why don't SU discount everything on the discontinuing list??" And the answer is simple: they don't need to! If you were a company that knew that your items were going to sell very well anyway... why would you discount them? It just doesn't make any sense from a business perspective. Having said all that, some items are discounted this year by either 25% or 50%!!! So that's a pretty good deal don't you think?

Some of the items that are marked down include some of the patterned papers, individual markers in the retiring colours, cartridges for the wheels, and Double stitched ribbons. There are lots more, so check out the list. It is literally first in, best dressed.

One of the items on the list that is marked down is the I Wish Simply Scrappin Kit. The cards on this post are both made with some of the papers from that particular kit. We made these cards at our Christmas SAS yesterday and everybody loved the colours. Right now, until sold out, you can nab yourself this great Christmas set for only $27.71. To order simply contact me via email at Thanks to Karen Thomas for allowing me to make a simple version of her very beautiful card.

Every single year I have customers looking for retired product after the final availability date - and every year I have to disappoint them. Let's not have that happen this year!

One Last Chance.....

.... to get your hands on our retiring products that will no longer be available after this month. And as always, some items will run out before that date too... in fact we have already lost Close to Cocoa A4 cardstock and Sweet Slumber paper. So if you have your eye on something... grab it whilst you can. Some items have been discounted on the "Last Chance List", and others have not, so have a look through and work out which items you will need.

Please note that I will be selling off all my retiring sets.. so if you have your eye on one that you know that I have you can put dibs on it. My discontinued (used) items will be available to purchase from September 1st.

It's also worth noting that some catalogue items are going to increase in price on September 1st... notably A4 cardstock prices will be increasing, so now is a good time to get your cardstock needs.

Ordering is easy. To order you can contact me by email anytime at or call my mobile which is 0412 375 552. I can have your order shipped to your door anywhere in Australia for a small postage charge.

Here is the list, and enjoy!
