June Stampin' Up Specials

Happy June - hope your month is off to a great start.  We've got a couple of Stampin' Up! specials this month if you're in a crafting mood.  

June Patterned Paper Sale

First up - there's 15% off a wide range of our DSP (patterned paper) packs during June.  I took quite a few packs away on a recent craft retreat and enjoyed creating with the various coordinating designs.  Whether you love cute animals, florals, space, earthy textures or gingham - there's something to appeal.  

Here's the section with all the sale papers if you're looking for some new additions:   Patterned Paper Sale 


During June we've also got some additional value in our starter kit offer.  This is a great option if you've got a bit on your wish list.  During June you get to choose $283 of products (any current products) and pay only $169 (with free shipping.)  Whether you'd like to be part of our demonstrator family for a short time or a long time is completely up to you.  I'd love to welcome you to the team. 

Make your list and head here if you'd like to take advantage of this offer:   Join Sue's Team 


Host code for June is 2SG2GC7H.  Pop that on if you're ordering online and I'll send you some samples in my next mail out.

Blended season bundle

During August (and while stocks last!!) we'll have this beautiful Blended Seasons bundle from our Colour Your Season special.  I've been really enjoying colouring those lovely leaves and flowers in the last week or so.  Such a great stamp set if you like colouring.  The bit I think is super unmissable though is that framelit set.  Those frames a such a great versatile shape - in 3 great sizes.  One fits beautifully on a card front plus two smaller ones for smaller elements.  And some flowers, leaves and a bow as well.  The framelit set is $57 and only available in August while stocks last so if you like this one as much as me - grab your set before it is gone. 

Here's all the Blended Season exclusive range if you're shopping or would like a closer look:  Colour Your Season products


I'll be back tomorrow to share some details on how I created the card above using the Blended Seasons bundle for our classes last month.  My talented class ladies tried some other colour combos so I've spent this afternoon CASEing some of their favourite colours.

Holiday Catalogue news.  Do you love creating your own Christmas cards and papercraft projects?  Our new Holiday Catalogue goes live on September 5th.  My boxes will be arriving this month and I'll be posting a free copy to my regular customers so watch the post then grab a cuppa and some post it notes for a good browse through all the lovely things. 

If you're a customer who hasn't ordered in a while - get in touch to let me know you'd love a copy so I know you're keen and can pop one in the post for you.  If you're new to Stampin' Up and are looking for a demonstrator I'd be happy to help.  Let me know your contact details for your free copy.  If you have a demonstrator already and are stopping by here for some inspiration - be sure to get in touch with your regular demo, they'd love to help you get your hands on a catalogue. 

Have a fabulous weekend with a nice dash of creativity.

Cheers, Sue

My personal favourite is this gorgeous Irresistibly Yours DSP.  White with white embossed patterns - you just add your ink by sponging, spritzing or brayering. 


Another one I'm loving is the Lotus Blossom stamp.  A triple layer stamp - beautiful.


Or you can start your collection of Blendabilities alcohol markers, or add to them.  Choose a pack of Blendabilities as your Saleabration freebie.  They come in packs of 3 - you get a light, medium and dark of your chosen colour.
