The Stamping With Sally Mini-Retreat will be held over 3 days this year ... plenty of time to make sure you're set for as much time as possible actually creating. 

It will be a no-frills retreat to (a) keep the cost down to $50 per day and (b) I would have only just returned from a trip to the UK and will be short of time to prepare the usual tizzy bits you come to expect when you attend a Stampin' Up! event. That's how I roll at the moment!! 

So join us! 

I'll be bringing along most of my gear (punches, Big Shots and accessories, stamp sets) so you just need to bring your consumables. There will be plenty of samples and printed sample sheets to inspire you. 

Convention Wrap Up

Four members of the team came with me to Brisbane for the 2013 Annual South Pacific Stampin' Up! Convention. Being able to share it with my friends made this year's Convention my best Convention yet - thank you to Helen, Jan and Suzanne, my roomies, Alexis and Coral and other friends who made it so great (Sandra, Kathy, Ruth and Tina). *Hugs*

The people:- 

(Helen and Suzanne, how did you escape having your photo taken??)

I have uploaded over 100 photos of the swaps and samples that were on display at the Convention on my NEW Stamping With Sally Facebook page ... please [Like] my page to receive regular updates by clicking here

ATTENTION: Part-Time Cardmakers and Out-of-Towners! 

Stampin' Up! is trialling a new mail-out program direct to customers for the great price of $9.95 - this includes the price of the new catalogue and postage to your door! 

Contact me to place your order any time between 15 May and 31 July 2013 ... and the best news is that you'll be one of the first customers to receive it as they'll be shipped to you in mid-June! 


As the new catalogue approaches, the inevitable Retirement Lists will be published. The Retirement Lists will be published next Friday, 7 June ... be quick to browse the list and place your order because once the products are gone, that's it!

  • We're introducing the line with these five products, but we'll be adding more This and That stuff as time goes on.
  • Bundle Dates: 1-31 May (remember the items that come in the bundle will be available in June and in the new catalogue, but we're only offering the discounted bundled until 31 May).
  • You can buy the This and That products separately. But why would you do that when you can get all five together and save 15 percent? 

That's it for now. Hope to see you at a class soon!

Class 11am Friday 10 May

It's a paper class this Friday and we'll be using the Tea For Two DSP from the seasonal catalogue. 

The colours are Calypson Coral, Early Espresso, Esland Indigo, Lucky Limeade, Pretty in Pink, So Saffron and Very Vanilla if you'd like to bring extra cardstock and embellishments.

It's a later start this week. 

11am Friday 10 May
$20 for 3 cards

Want to order the DSP? The address for the online shopping has changed slightly ... it is now Tea for Two Designer Series Paper Item No 129311 $18.85 for 12 sheets. 

My Digital Studio

I am loving the new digital software, My Digital Studio. It's not just for scrapbooking and cardmaking! I've just used it to make the invitations for the TAS Mothers Day Morning Tea. It is so much easier than Photoshop and Paintshop Pro. 

The background is just a regular photo I found on the web ... blank document was 6" x 4" so I could print it as a regular photo at Big W for 12c, adjusted the "fade", added some text and Voila!  

You get the whole program for $24.95 (compare that with Photoshop's price). At the Shop Now button, go to "My Digital Studio" and select "Software" Item No. 130646. If you'd like to try it for 30 days for free, select Item No. 130910. 

Stampin' Up! has a huge range of artwork available including our existing stamps, papers and embellishments but you can also use any other digital images you have. 

From now until 15 June, there is 25% off some MDS products, including all ensembles, photobooks and calendars. 

An ensemble includes all you will need to complete a perfectly co-ordinating project.
