January Craft Room Tour and Well Suited Suite Video

Craft Room Tour

Hello - January has flashed by hasn't it!  I've popped a couple of new videos over on my youtube channel.  This first one is a bit of a tour of my rearranged craft room.  Still a few bits to finish but while it was tidy I thought I'd take the chance to give you a little video tour.

And here's another quick one I put together to show you how to use the various different dies in the Suit and Tie dies, plus we take a closer look at the Well Suited DSP  This is such a fun suite of products to mix and match with.  I had fun making this poster to showcase the dies and papers. 

New host code for February  VU2XPSBA

Pop that on when you order online and I'll send you a little sample pack in the post.   Here's how to use the host code:  Host Code and Stampin' Rewards Tips

Just chopping bits and pieces for my latest mail out for those that have used the host code recently - so keep an eye on the mailbox.  

Have a fab February everyone.

Cheers, Sue

New tools are always exciting and I've added two packs of these beautiful blending brushes to my collection.  Great for blending inks for a gorgeous soft background.  These are lovely quality.  I'll have a video coming soon if you're new to blending brushes.

Here are two of my favourites from the Saleabration Level 1 Freebie choices:  The beautiful Paper Blooms patterned paper and the very elegant Heal Your Heart stamp set - the font is just so eye catching.

StudyLoads more favourites amongst all the range for me.  I'm looking forward to getting creative once I finish the last bits of my latest craft room clean up.  Usually I run out of puff before I get to the big cupboard in there but this time I'm powering through and almost finished.  We've reorganised the non crafty side of the room with a new desk set up for John to work in there instead of in the dining room so I have to share my space for a little bit (or dive in there whenever he takes a break.)  I can't wait to show you how it is looking with less clutter and more organisation.  

I've been sharing a few pics over on my facebook page (find it here:  Sue Madex Papercrafts) if you'd like to follow along.  Have dug up a few treasures.  

Get in touch if I can help with any Stampin' Up! questions or if you'd prefer to place your order by phone or email.  Happy to help.  I've got some more catalogues here all set to post if you'd love a paper copy - let me know. 

Happy 2021 creating!  

Cheers, Sue

Happy New Year


Happy New Year.  Quite nice to toast 2020 and give it a farewell.  Let's head into 2021 and see what this year has for us.  We're all much stronger now I think and ready to pivot and adapt to whatever comes our way.  My biggest 2020 lesson was a renewed appreciation for all the family and friends and others in the communities we're part of and for the little everyday kindnesses that help fuel a better day for everyone.  

Happy new yearWishing you health, happiness and lots of creative fun in 2021.  

I'm looking forward to sharing lots more with you here at Madex Creations.  I've taken a few weeks off creating while we've been enjoying the company of various family over Christmas/New Year.  And of course - you know me - time to continue my never ending reorganising of our study.  We've had a BIG change in there on the non crafty side of the room - getting it all set up for John to work in there.  He's been on the dining room table all year but we've decided we like having that back in action again for meals, jigsaws and board games so he's moving into the study.  I've rearranged a few things and continued on with my 'get rid of stuff I'm not using' push and it is looking quite spiffy.  Keep an eye out for a tour once I've done a few more bits.

New catalogue and our Saleabration promo where you get free items with a $90 purchase kicks off on Jan 5th - not long now.  

Have a fab year.  Cheers, Sue
