Two New Patterned Paper Kits for July

Just a quick note to let you know I've opened up orders for my two July DSP (patterned paper) and coordinating cardstock kits.

Find all the details and ordering information here:   Sue's Handy Kits

This month I'm featuring Textured Chic Specialty DSP from our Annual Catalogue and Boughs Of Holly DSP from our Mini.

I hope it will be useful for you to have the option of a 1/4 pack of the patterned paper plus some A5 sized coordinating cardstock (and a few other coordinating products.)

Let me know if you have any questions about the kits.

Wonderful World DSP by Stampin' Up


I've been thoroughly enjoying creating with the gorgeous Wonderful World DSP this past week.  Get this paper plus a coordinating stamp set free when you place a $180 order during July/August (while stocks last.)  Or choose from some of the other Saleabration freebies.  

I cut the sheet of large flowers and have been making a range of cards similar to these ones.  Keep it simple if you've just got a few basic supplies, or add some extra details if you have things like embossing folders and dies.  


I put together a video here showing a simple version - plus some stepped up ones at the end with some extra layering. 

Happy creating,

Stampin' Up: How To Redeem My Free Saleabration Items

If you're phoning or emailing your order through to me - just let me know when you place your order and I can add your free Saleabration items.  (One for every $90 of products in the order.)  

If you're ordering online and your order reaches $90 in products - here's how to redeem your free products.  Here's my order.  (I'd love it if you checked that it has the correct demonstrator name. Wink.)  Click on checkout once you have finished choosing your products. 

Saleabration screen 1

On the next screen you'll see the saleabration items.  It also tells you how many you've earned.  For this order it says up to 2.  I can either select two of the Free With $90 Purchase items or I can choose one of the Free With $180 Purchase items. I'll show you how to find them in the next pic. 

Saleabration screen 2

If you'd like to look through the Free With $180 Purchase items - click the little + sign.

Saleabration screen 3

And that will expand the screen so you can see the other items.  Once you've chosen all your freebies - continue on as usual. 

(If you totally don't love free items - there is a section there where you can choose to continue without choosing any free products.)

Hope that helps.

All of our Saleabration range are 'while stocks last' so some may sell out before the end of August.  I'll keep you posted.  

Have a wonderful week and for all my customers that are in the very wet parts of Australia just now - wishing you bluer skies and some dry days ahead and thinking of you. 

Take care, Sue

One of the things I almost missed in my first browse through our new catalogue is this Embossing Additions Tool Kit.  It has a handy tray with a pouring spout, an embossing buddy to rub over your cardstock before embossing, some groovy crafting tweezers and a crafting brush to brush away excess powder.  If you love your embossing - this is a great tool kit.   Check it out here:  Embossing Tool Kit

I'll be sharing some creative inspiration with you in the coming weeks now that my newest box of goodies has arrived.  You might like to subscribe to my newsletter if you're keen on some card tutorial PDFs and don't want to miss any Stampin' Up! news.  

Have a fabulous week.  Happy stamping.

Saleabration Is About To Begin

Saleabration and New Catalogue

July is about to tick over and that means Saleabration is about to begin.  It is also the launch of our July - December Mini Catalogue. 

During Saleabration you get to choose free products with every $90 or $180 of products ordered.  (They're all in the little Saleabration brochure.)  To help you choose your favourite I filmed a video so you could have a closer look at the various things. I left my very favourite one until the end.  :-) 

As part of Saleabration we also have a joining special during July/August.  If you join you get to choose $235 of products - (any current items, you can choose your favourites) and you'll pay just $169 and you get free shipping on that too.  A good value deal.  PLUS during Saleabration you get this gorgeous planner free.  

If you LOVE your planners and would like a closer look, here's a bit of a tour I put together so you could see what the assorted pages look like. 

I hope those videos come in handy to help you make the most of this year's Saleabration special.  

Get in touch if you've got any questions or if you prefer to phone your order through.  Happy to help.

If you've ordered in the past year and you're waiting on your catalogues to arrive - I was a little late getting them in the post this time due to a mix up I had when I ordered them. (Oopsie - I pressed the button for more of the Jan - Jun Minis instead of the Saleabration brochure.)  The correct ones finally arrived and Hannah and I got them in the post a couple of days ago so they should be arriving very soon.

If you haven't ordered in a while but you'd love a catalogue, or if you're new to Stampin' Up and looking for a demonstrator - get in touch and I'll pop one in the post for you.  

Happy creating.

Cheers, Sue

Simple To Stepped Up: One Design, Three Cards

Simple to Stepped Up

For this design I started with a very simple card.  Just one panel and one layer of stamping.  The panel is 7cm x 11.5cm.  Stamp Set is Sending Smiles, and the colours are three of our new in colours - Sweet Sorbet, Orchid Oasis and Parakeet Party. 

For the middle card I added the Sending Dies and cut the greeting panel and one of the flowers just to add a little bit of detail.

For the third card I've matted the feature panel using some of the Sweet Sorbet cardstock, and I've die cut more of the flowers.  I've also stamped some extra blossoms using Daffodil Delight ink.  

Which is your favourite?  I'm a simple fan so I think I quite like the one on the left.  

Card 2

I've been quite productive at my craft desk the last week or two so I'll be back soon with some more projects to share.  Or catch me on facebook or instagram.  Find me at SueMadexPapercrafts over there.  

If you love the look of those pretty In Colors - just reminding you we've got a great joining special this month that is rather too good to resist if you have a bit on your new catalogue wish list.  Choose any $235 of products, pay just $169 and you get a bonus In Color pack with all 5 ink pads, a cardstock pack, 6" x 6" DSP and some handy grid paper - all free.    More info and the joining link here:   Grab Some Free In Colors

Have a great week,

Cheers, Sue
