Where are we, generally, personally and with SU?

Our garden is enjoying the glimpses of sunshine, the wattles on our walking trail are blooming, our air is clean and thankfully our COVID numbers are coming down.

We’ve all been having fun crafting, making samples, sending cards to friends, catching up ‘virtually’, and generally being creative. My husband, Pete, has been working on his digital mixed media Art.  We’ve been learning new skills; Zoom, WhatsApp, iMovie, YouTube and so on!

Stampin’ Up! Product Availability and Scheduling

Generally, order filling and shipping are back on track. Most products are ready and waiting for us. While we have been advised that there may be some shipping delays, most of our orders have been shipped and delivered promptly.  I’m super impressed!  Thanks SU, Australia Post and its Contractors.

July Bonus Days.  Don’t forget to spend any July Bonus Coupons before August 31

Just in case, you haven’t yet redeemed your bonus coupons, now’s the time. Here is the link to my online store

Mini (Christmas) Catalogue: Launched August 4, 2020

Please contact me for you very own paper catalogue.  There’s nothing quite like it for flipping through, dreaming, and finding fabulous ideas.  We can craft and enjoy making Christmas Cards during this ‘quiet time’.

Product Samples

Love of Leaves Bundle

You might notice that there are two different colour ways and DSPs.  One is the all seasons, Plaid Tidings DSP, and the other is the Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP.  They both coordinate beautifully with the Stitched Leaves.

Here are the product links in my Online Store: Love of Leaves Bundle, Plaid Tidings DSP, Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP & Suite

Three for Three Cards in Snowflake Splendor

This group of three cards, uses one card front of DSP, and one card front each of two contrasting cardstock colours. You might see that I have embossed the cardstock with two different embossing folders and each card features a different bundle from the new Mini Catalogue.  The bundles are Cherish the Season, Snowflake Splendor and Dove of Hope.

I will be featuring these cards in my upcoming Blog post.  You might like check my website in a few days’ time.

Here are the product links: Poinsettia Place Suite, Red & Green Foil Sheets.

Playful Pets & Love of Leaves

Do you love how our products coordinate?   Perhaps you can you see that I’ve paired our pet punches with this gorgeous Playful Pets Suite.  The stitching border is from Love of Leaves Bundle.
