Flowers of beautyNot long now until we turn the calendar over to May and that'll be the start of our new annual catalogue.  

It goes live May 1st and if you've ordered in the past year - your complimentary copy should be arriving in your mailbox this week.  It is a bit of a different format - more of a magazine style with some handy things like colour theory swatches, card sketches, 10 essential tools and more.  You can find extra product details any time you need them in our online store once the catalogue goes live.

Stampin' Up Retiring Stock - Last Chance List

Last Chance Banner

Retiring in colours 2024With a new catalogue coming up soon, that means it is time to let you know of some products that will be retiring from our range. 

The lists below include all the items that won't be in our new annual catalogue, or in our online store.  They are all now available while stocks last and I anticipate some items will sell out.  

Where you see discounted prices shown - the sale prices will start from April 9th (on any remaining stock unless already sold out.)  

Keep an eye out for the items with a

*** - this symbol means that the bundle with discounted pricing is finishing, but the individual items may still be available at full price.   

** - this symbol means that one of the items in the bundle is retiring. 

**** - this means the product is being reconfigured so will still be available but perhaps has different packaging or other details or a new manufacturer.

Just a heads up that there are a few price rises in the new catalogue - cardstock and envelopes were two I particularly spotted.  If your stash is low you may like to stock up on some of your favourites before the price change in May. 

Happy browsing and let me know if you have any questions.

OnStage Melbourne 2024 and New Catalogue News

Retiring in colours 2024 Annual catalogue 2024I'm just back from a very enjoyable couple of days in the city with the Stampin' Up! crowd.  We had a terrific time catching up in person, and getting inspired with some sneak peeks at the upcoming new Annual Catalogue.  This catalogue starts in May (which I'm sure will be upon us in a flash at the rate this year is flying by.)  If you've ordered in the last 6 months or so I'll be posting out a complimentary copy of the catalogue so keep an eye on the post in April. 

A new catalogue coming soon means that our current ones are finishing up next month.  We will be into 'while stocks last' time very soon and I'll send a quick newsletter to let you know when the retiring lists come out.  If you need any of our soon to retire in colours - Sweet Sorbet, Tahitian Tide, Starry Sky, Orchid Oasis or Parakeet Party - I'd grab them ASAP as the retiring in colour reinkers etc always seem to go in a flash.  

Here's a peek at the new about to be released in colours - not the best of photos sorry but gives a bit of an idea.  The colours look a bit lighter and fresher in real life. 

Colour chart new in colours

A big thanks to all my fab customers, class ladies from over the years, social media supporters and team - I enjoyed celebrating my 15th anniversary as a demonstrator and walking across the stage with 4 friends/team mates also marking their 15th year of creativity and friendship.  Was chuffed to get a sales award as well which is definitely shared with all my lovely customers.  

Stage walk 15 years

Next year we are off to Brisbane for Onstage 2025.  (Think about joining the fun as a demonstrator sometime this year if you'd love to join in all the Onstage excitement next time round.)

Host Code March/April: 

Host Code Sue Madex March April 2024My new host code is QE9KCX7Z and this one runs from mid March until about mid April.

Pop that on if you're ordering online and I'll send you a little sample pack in my next mail out. 

(If you've used the host code in recent months - good news patient people.  I've had a very productive afternoon and have packaged up some DSP samples (a few extra ones to make up for running a bit slow this time!) and they're in envelopes with the addresses written and postage stamps all stuck.  All set to pop in the post on Monday so keep an eye out for some happy mail soon.) Next host code mail out will be late May.  

Madex Creations Newsletter Update

Do you get my Madex Creations Newsletter in your inbox?  I've made some small changes there too and it now is sent from smadex (at) instead of my bigpond email.  If you usually get my newsletter and you can't see the one I sent today - have a quick check of your junk mail - it might have gone astray if your email program didn't recognise the new address.  

Well - I think that is about all the Stampin' Up! news for now.  

Have a terrific week and happy stamping.

Cheers, Sue
