May Update: Stampin' Up! and Renovations

ShelliIt is just about to click over to the 15th May which will be time to order your Hugs From Shelli Paper Pumpkin Kit if that one takes your fancy.  Just $37 - it includes the following:

  • An exclusive stamp set not available anywhere else
  • One Classic Stampin’ Spot from our Classic ink collection
  • Paper and crafting materials to create 12 cards (3 cards of 4 unique designs)
  • 12 exclusive, coordinating envelopes
  • Adhesives and embellishments for all 12 cards
Coordinating Stampin’ Up! colours: Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Old Olive, Petal Pink, Pool Party, Pretty Peacock, Soft Suede and Very Vanilla.  You'll need a D block for this one - available separately if you don't have one on hand of this or similar size.
 
The exact contents are a surprise but Shelli describes the kit as ‘A touch of earthy and elegant spring with lots of layers and texture.’ And remember, everything in the Hugs from Shelli kit is pre-cut and ready to go.

RenovatingRENOVATION NEWS
We are having a bit of a floor makeover at our place rather soon.  The charcoal slate is coming up and something timberish is going down.  Plus a lick of paint while we're making a mess. 
 
So our class area (AKA the dining room) will be out of action for a few months.  I've got classes in the last 2 weeks of May then a bit of a renovation break for a few months.  Slate removal booked for July so hopefully we're back on deck a little later this year with a spiffy new floor.  
 
Unfortunately that means no new catalogue launch at our place this time but we'll try to make up for it with some online fun in June so keep an eye out.
 
Keen to catch a class before we close up for a few months?  Check out my May dates - one is booked out, space in the others.   Class Details
 
 
Card
Here's a bit of a peek at some new things coming up in the upcoming new annual catalogue.  They've just started arriving I think at some of the interstate NSW post boxes.  Victoria and Qld should be any day now, and perhaps an extra few days for SA, Tas and WA.  Let me know when yours arrives and I'd love to hear what catches your eye amongst the pages. 
 
The new catalogue goes live on June 4th so a few weeks to browse.  
 
Sue's Retired Stock Sale: Sunday May 19th
 
Since we are about to embark on some renovations - goodbye slate floor, eek - I'm VERY keen to have a clear out.  That's a bit less stuff to move downstairs!
 
Stamps, papers, craft storage items and lots more - all priced to GO. Grabbing a bag full? Get an extra discount.
 
This Sunday 19th May:
 
Swing past anytime between 2pm and 4pm to grab yourself a bargain.
 
Payment: Cash or direct deposit only.
 
Avondale Heights in Melbourne's west - get in touch if you need address details.
 
 
Happy stamping everyone!
 
Cheers Sue
 

All The May News

May is shaping up to be full of exciting new craft supplies  with two great limited time kits on offer.

Tomorrow (May 1st) is the launch for the Everything Is Rosy Kit.

Kit contents

The kit is $139 and includes all the things listed above.  I just love the colours - Melon Mambo, Night Of Navy and Rose Gold.  How lovely does that rose gold shimmer paint look.

All you need to add is your imagination.  If that is feeling a little tired (I hear you!!!) then here's some projects for inspiration.  

Sample 1

Sample 4

Sample 5

Here's a closer look at the stamp set included.  There's coordinating dies too.

Everything is rosy stamp set

Love the look of these products - I'd recommend heading over to my online store tomorrow if you're keen.  I have a hunch this may sell out fast.  

Another kit coming on 15th May is the Paper Pumpkin Hugs From Shelli Kit.  This one will be $37 and if I was choosing for a sweepstakes I'd take 'sell out on the first day' as my prediction for this one.  So mark the diary for 15th May and jump online first thing to order if you're keen.  

Shelli kit

The Shelli kit from Paper Pumpkin includes the following:

  • An exclusive stamp set not available anywhere else
  • One Classic Stampin’ Spot® from our Classic ink collection
  • Paper and crafting materials to create 12 cards (3 cards of 4 unique designs)
  • 12 exclusive, coordinating envelopes
  • Adhesives and embellishments for all 12 cards

Coordinating Stampin’ Up! colours: Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Old Olive, Petal Pink, Pool Party, Pretty Peacock, Soft Suede and Very Vanilla

You'll need a D block for this one - available separately if you don't have one on hand of this or similar size.

The exact contents are a surprise but Shelli describes the kit as ‘A touch of earthy and elegant spring with lots of layers and texture.’ And remember, everything in the Hugs from Shelli kit is pre-cut and ready to go. 

Here's one of the 4 designs from the kit.

Stampin' Up! - Last Chance Products

Last chance products

It is that time of year - the retiring list is out.  These are the products that are not going to be in our new annual catalogue on 4th June.  From now til 3rd June they'll be available while stocks last. 

Every year there are things that sell out quickly so have a squiz through the list to see if there's anything you need before its gone.  

You'll find the stamps here:    Last Chance Stamps 

A little note about the stamp sets list - for some sets the wood mount and clear mount versions are retiring but it will be available in the new annual in cling mount format.  Some on the list are going going will be gone.  I think SU are working on an update to the list that will clarify which is which but in the meantime let me know if you have any questions about a particular set.  

The bundles are here:  Last Chance Bundles

(Remember for bundles sometimes the whole bundle is retiring, for others the products will still be available separately but not at the discounted bundle price.)  

Everything else is here:   Everything Else List

Host code is  W7SDJFVY   Pop that on if you're ordering online.  

Lots of things there so have a really good look through the lists.  Here's a few that I'll particularly miss .....

Adhesive sheets

We've been using these Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets a lot in class this year with any fiddly dies. Stock up class regulars, and anyone else who loves intricate dies  - they're on the retiring list.

Wood textures dsp

The patterned paper (DSP) retires every year but I'll especially miss these lovely wood grain sheets.  Very versatile.  

 

Lovely as a tree

We are bidding farewell to the Lovely As A Tree stamp set after many many years in our range.

Place an order this year to qualify for your complimentary catalogue.

AWH March Blog Hop: Easter

Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing creative projects with an Easter theme. 

Don’t forget, sale-a-bration ends on March 31st! There is still time to earn free product with purchase or even join our Stampin’ Up! team. Ask any of the girls on the hop for more details.

Easter blog hop

I had to have a BIG hunt through my stamp collection but I did manage to find one Easter related stamp - a greeting from Itty Bitty Greetings.  

Easter cards

I've combined it with one of the frame stamps from Label Me Pretty then popped it on top of a little square note card. 

Make a set of three that look extra cute in one of our boxes made using the Wood Crate Framelits.  I've used the Wood Textures DSP for the crate and for a coordinating trim on the cards.  Some twine is featured on the join.  

Easter card 2

Some Easter Eggs would just finish it off don't you think.  And bonus - I get to eat the props while I type up this blog post.  ;-)

Now it’s time to hop on over to our next participant, the very talented and always lovely Kate Morgan.
