Class Samples Friday 3 June and Tuesday 7 June


This week's class focuses on the masking technique and the Nature Walk stamp set. I just love this stamp set and am making the most of it as it is only available in the mini catalogue until 31 July. If you love it, buy it! Wood mount price is $51.95 and the cling mount price is $41.95. These cards were designed by the fabulously talented US demonstrator, Sandi McIver (just love her stuff!).

These are not designer papers, ladies - you will be able create these great cards from scratch!

Usual details:-

Friday 3 June 7.30pm and (same class) Tuesday 7 June 10.30am
5 Capricorn Street, Bentley Park
$20 for 3 cards - all materials, equipment and fabulous coffee provided
Kits also available ($20)
Please RSVP so I know how many kits to prepare.


Hold a $450 workshop (including GST and shipping) between 23 May and 30 June 2011, and earn an EXTRA $70 in hostess rewards on any catalogue merchandise!

(That's right--we said the qualifying workshop amount is including GST and shipping. This is the first time SU! has included shipping in the total, making it even easier for you to achieve the EXTRA free products!)

You can use their extra $70 on any catalogue merchandise.
So, for a $450 workshop, you'll receive the regular $40 hostess money PLUS an additional $70 hostess money - a total of $110 to spend on any catalogue merchandise PLUS the free hostess stamp set. This amount increases as your workshop sales increase.
This is a great promotion so jump on board. Dates are filling fast - weeknights are still available. No room at your house or worried about the mess? I'll host your party here - you just provide the guests.
There is still room for more members in our Stamp Club. This is a great way to budget for your purchases each month and earn the hostess benefits every 6 months ... and get another evening of stamping fun each month for free!
Have a great rest of the week.

I'm available most days (babysitting permitting), evenings and weekends! I'd love to come and show you some new, fun projects.


I have a couple of people interested in starting a Stamp Club. Call me if you'd like further details. Basically, there are 6 members to the Club - each of the members make a committment to purchase $50 worth of SU! gear each month for 6 months and then take turns acting as "hostess" each month - the hostess of the month will receive the free money to spend and hostess stamp set(s).

The Stamp Club members are also able to meet once per month at my house to have coffee, show and tell, complete a project or two, share ideas etc.


Meet my latest stamping recruit ... Emily! Does she even have a choice???

Speaking of recuits, I'm keen to increase my stamping business by joining more recruits and sharing more of what I love. Don't be afraid - you don't need to host workshops! You'll receive 20% off your purchases by joining up. We'll have team get-togethers once per month to share ideas, new techniques and talk stamping in general.

Have a great rest of the week.

Cheers, Sally.

Class Tonight and Tuesday 24 May

I've finally finished the third card for tonight's class ... nothing like last minute! Here they are - all very vintage for this class.

The first card is a bit of a funky fold with butterflies and some shimmery gold smooch spritz. The second card is very shabby with some crimping and flowers popped up over the ribbon for a bit of interest. The final card uses the emboss-resist technique (or "faux-porcelain" technique as some people call it).

There are 2 places left for tonight's class.

The same class will be run on Tuesday 24 May at 10.30am.

Hope you get some crafting done this weekend.

So, for a party with sales of $500, hostesses will receive $120 to spend + the free hostess stamp set(s). Wahoo! Please let me know if you can host a party during June...

Off to Convention and Deal of the Week - Week 2

Hi ladies

One more sleep to go and I'm off to the Stampin' Up! Convention 2011 in Melbourne. Very excited although I still haven't finished my swaps ... I think there are going to be a few bleary-eyed ladies around tomorrow.

A few snaps from last year's Convention in Sydney:-

Ruth and I were groupies and had our photo taken with Shelli Gardner, co-founder of Stampin' Up!

The Cairns crew (less Christina ... must have been scouring the building for coffee)

Ruth accepting her award for over $20k in sales and recruitment success

The Cairns Crew go glam for the presentation and dinner

So there won't be a class this Friday night.

Next Tuesday's class (17 May) will be a catch-up day and kits from previous classes will be available.

Next Friday night will be an Elements of Style class designed by Sandi McIver and here is a sneak peek:-

I still have 1 card to complete before the samples are ready so I'll post a photo next week.
