Bushfire Appeal


Thanks to all Independent Demonstrators and Customers from Australia and New Zealand, Stampin’ Up! have raised $34,653.80 (figure updated today Friday 27th Feb) so far to be donated to the Australian Red Cross helping victims of the terrible bush fires in Victoria. This has been made possible by the generous donation of 50% of the retail value of 10 stamp sets as outlined below by Stampin’ Up! This is also made possible by you the customers purchasing these sets, which are all beautiful – my special favourites are ‘Priceless’ and ‘Baroque Motifs’. Scroll down for details of these sets.


Stampin Up will continue to donate money from stamp sets till the end of March. However, there are two major advantages to ordering prior to the end of this month i.e. Saturday.

 You will guarantee delivery of any set ordered

On the 1st of March the ‘retired list’ will be announced, which includes 6 of the 10 stamps on the Bushfire Appeal List. These sets are only available whilst stocks last during March. By ordering on or before the 28th of February, Stampin’ Up! will guarantee delivery of any stamp set, even if it has to go on back order. Retired stamps that run out during March will not go onto backorder. Of course we do know that all the In Color products will be retired at the end of march, so if you are wanting to absolutely secure these items, ordering before the end of this month will ensure delivery.

Receive a free Sale – a – Bration stamp set for every $100 spent

This means that if you spend $100 on Bushfire Appeal Stamp Sets, you will receive a free stamp set and $50 will be donated to the Australian Red Cross Victorian Bushfires 2009 Appeal.


 Contact me via any of the methods listed below

 Check out the links to the on line catalogues on the right hand side of the screen, if you do not have your own hard copy.

 Please try to contact me before midday tomorrow (Saturday). I can place orders up till 11pm Saturday, however, I need time to process the orders and I have workshops in the afternoon. If you do not read this until Saturday night, feel free to try and contact me – I just cannot guarantee anything after midday – but I will do my best.

Kind regards

Stampin' Up! Statement of the Heart

With ‘Sale – a -  Bration’ coming to a close this Saturday, I thought that I would take a final opportunity to hghlight the demonstrator opportunity before the special concludes. Above you will find the Stampin’ Up! Statement of the Heart. This ‘Statement of the Heart’ really does capture the very essence of what makes being a demonstrator fun and worthwhile. I absolutely love making Stampin’ Up! projects, especially when I can share them with others. I enjoy being creative with my friends and my other demonstrators as well as during workshops. In the last 3 years I have made so many wonderful new friends, completed some beautiful projects for my friends and family, earned money doing something I enjoy and have assisted a number of charitable organisations. 

 If you have ever thought about joining as a discount, hobby or career demonstrator; please do ask me any questions you may have. To be eligible for the special, as detailed below, Stampin’ Up! must receive your application by Friday, so please touch base with me sooner rather than later.

Afternoon Tea Origami Ball

I am extremely fortunate to have a craft room, which I love to share with my 4 children when they are working on homework, school projects or craft. Here is just a little creation I 'whipped up' (only joking) whilst helping the children with their homework. It is an Origami Ball made from 60 individual pieces of folded paper (Afternoon Tea Designer Series Paper from the Summer Mini Catalogue). I am definitely making some of these for Christmas 2009, when we get the papers from the new catalogue to be released in April.
