The new catalogue is live!! After the long wait and paging through the catalogue multiple times we can finally start crossing items off the wish list and getting them into our hands!
I can also start sharing with you new classes that I am going to be holding. The first one is:

We had so much fun in the Rain or Shine Stamp Camp, and before the day was over we had people asking when the next one was going to be. The ladies in the Let’s Craft Together group are teaming up for another online stamp camp. This Stamp camp will be on the 10th June. The event will take place in an exclusive Facebook group.
We each design 2 cards – a standard card and a fun fold. In the event each of us will take you through making our projects. You can watch live or at any time that suites you.

September Suite Of The Month

If you don’t know what Suite of the month is, it is where we highlight One product suite ed each month. I hope these suites are on your shopping list because you will earn a free make and take kit when you purchase the designated suites. Then meet me in Zoom to assemble the kits while I demonstrate where all the pieces go. If you miss the Zoom social, a Youtube link will be sent to you so you can assemble the kits at your leisure.

In addition, I am collaborating with other demonstrators across the globe that will be sharing 2 projects each using the same product suite. We are anticipating that there will be at least 5 demonstrators participating each month. This means that you will get a minimum of 10 different ideas to use with the rest of your product suite by watching these videos. Although you will only get the kit for my make ‘n takes, you will be able to make all the other projects because you have purchased the suite! Much as we would like to buy everything in the catalogue, we also have to choose which are our favourite favourites, so the demonstrators can vary from month to month.

The next suite that we have chosen to show case in the Suite Of The Month series, is Tidings of Christmas. To purchase your suite from my online store, click here

Here is a sneak peek of the projects in this month’s bundle:

Please order early in the month if you want to participate in the Zoom socials since the socials will be held on the Wednesday 29th September 6:30-7:30pm, and Thursday 30th September 10:30-11:30am AEST.

I will need some time to prepare your kit and post it to you. When I see an order come through with the designated Sui I will need some time to prepare your kit and post it to you. When I see an order come through with the designated Suite of the Month, I’ll ship your make and take kit to you automatically for that month.

You are welcome to order any and all of the suites on the same order as well so you can earn and spend all the host rewards. If your order stays under $250 (excluding shipping), please use the host code on the side when ordering.

Here are the Suites being featured each month. Links to my online store to order these products are embedded. The page numbers refer to pages in the 2021-2022 annual catalogue unless stated otherwise.

September – Tidings of Christmas, pg 88-89. Cute stockings and friendly greetings to start making your Christmas cards
October – Gingerbread and Peppermint, pg 8-9 of the August – December mini catalogue. Fun images and a beautiful pillow box for your small gifts to be hidden inside.
November – Pansy Petals, pg 28-29. Gorgeous pansies in pretty colours to lead us into summer.

These previous suites are still available with an order (although you won’t get the kit and Zoom social). Some of these these suites are all from the January – June mini catalogue and have retired.. The bundles have carried over to the annual catalogue, but the DSP is no longer available, so you will have to choose a substitute DSP

August – Beauty Of The Earth, page 10-11. Different tree images with vibrant earthy colours.
Hand-Penned, page 104-105. A whimsical collection in soft, pretty colours.
Simply Elegant, page 68-69. As the name suggests an elegant suite with (in my opinion) the best DSP in the catalogue!
Dandy Garden Suite, pages 24-27, a dragonfly punch in 2 sizes!
Hydrangea Hill Suite, pages 18-19, 2 shades of purple pearls and purple acetate sheets! (The pearls and acetate sheets did carry over)
Ice Cream Corner Suite, pages 48-49, a bright and warm color palette and ice cream cone punch

I am looking forward to catching up with you and sharing my projects later this month.

If you live in Australia and don’t have a demonstrator, please feel free to contact me and I will be happy to assist you with your stamping needs. You can also shop from home at my online store.

If you are like me and need to have absolutely everything in the catalogue, give some thought to joining my team! Talk to me if you would like more information, or you can sign up now.
